Prior to today’s auction more than 1.76 Crore RECs were available in the market for trade;however the traded volume is low on account of non-fulfillment of RPO compliance by major utilities. The traded volumes are expected to increase in the coming months as many obligated entities would start purchasing REC’s to meet their RPO targets.
