Dear Sri. Siddaramaiahji,

TRACO Cable Company Limited is a premier State owned Public Sector Undertaking and an ISO 9001 Company engaged in the manufacture of cables and conductors in Kerala functioning well since 1964. TRACO Cable Company Limited has successfully completed orders based on KTPP Exemption for the year 2015-16 from various ESCOMS of Karnataka State.

In this connection, you may kindly note that due to the intervention of your good office TRACO could obtain KTPP exemption twice (during the year 2014-15 and 2015-16 vide ref. AE, 913 EXPENDITURE12/14 dated 27.10.2014 and No. EN 67, VSC 2014 dated 11.05.2015) for which we are thankful to the Government for the full support received from the Karnataka Government. As Karnataka being a neighbouring State, it would be of very much easy and advantageous for TRACO to supply products at competitive rates.

In this regard Company wrote a letter to Additional Chief Secretary to Government, Energy Department, Karnataka vide letter No. MD/01/25 dated 09.02.2016 requesting to exempt TRACO from the purview of KTPP Act for 2016-17.
