New Delhi. Union Minister of State (IC) for Power, Coal and New and Renewable Energy, Piyush Goyal said that Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) has to act as a bridge between developers and the consumers and the regulator simultaneously balancing the interest of both parties.

Addressing the function of CERC`s foundation day here, Goyal said that CERC has acted as benchmark regulator in the country.
