"Both independent power producers association as well as association of power producers made written submissions and he gave them time for making additional written submissions also which they have done and we also made our stand known to them and now he is preparing his final report which will be presented to the court. I am not in a position to say whether he will be presenting it today or seeking some time,” he further added.
