The Solar Energy Corporation of India has issued a request for selection (RfS) for 50MW of solar PV capacity in the state of Maharashtra in the Domestic Content Requirement  (DCR) category.

The DCR means solar equipment must be sourced from local suppliers, although the policy has been under fire during a controversial World Trade Organisation (WTO) trade case with the US, which India recently lost. Analysts have since reported that the DCR is a “badly designed policy tool“.

Yesterday SECI also announced the other 450MW of the tender in Maharashtra (part B), although this is for open category.
