How the subsidy amount be calculated ?
Subsidy or Central Financial Assistance (CFA) will given as percentage of benchmark cost or cost discovered through competitive process, whichever is lower). For example, at the time of tendering the Benchmark price for project capacity of >3 KW -10 KW was 40,991/ KWp and the L1 rates for JVVNL & AVVNL/JdVVL are 40,991/KW and 41990/KW respectively. Hence, the subsidy will be given on 40,991/KW for all the three Discoms, Hence, the simple Subsidy Calculation would be:-
40% up to 3 KW, which means for the slab up to 3KW the subsidy per KW= Rs.16,396.4
20% above 3 KW & up to 10 KW; for remaining capacity, the subsidy per KW= 8198.2
Simply speaking; For the project of 3 KW; subsidy would be = Rs. 16,396.4 X3 = Rs 49189.2/-
For any project above 3 KW, the subsidy would be= (49189.2 )+ (Project Size- 3 ) X 8198.2
Hence for the project capacity of 6 KW; total Subsidy customer will get will be Rs. 49189.2 + (6-3) X 8198.2 = 49189.2 + 24594.6 = Rs. 73783.8 /-
Total Project Cost :- For a project of 6 KW in Ajmer Discom; the cost would be
Project Cost Excluding GST= 6X 41990= Rs. 251940/-
Project Cost Including GST at 13.8% = 286707.72
Additional cost would be Solar Meter/Net-Meter, Discom Charges, High Rise Structure or any other customization or fees mutually agreed between beneficiary & vendor.
