Electricity generated by central sector generating stations is allocated to the beneficiary states and union territories in the electricity region by the Ministry of Power (MoP). As per the extant guidelines of MoP, 50% of power is allocated to Home State, 15% unallocated power kept at the disposal of Government of India and 35% is allocated to other constituents (except Home State) of that region.

The present tariffs of nuclear power range from Rs. 1.07 per unit in case of the oldest nuclear power station, Tarapur Atomic Power Station (TAPS) - 1 & 2 at Tarapur, Maharashtra to Rs. 4.10 in case of the latest station, Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) - 1 & 2 at Kudankulam, Tamil Nadu. Nuclear power tariffs are comparable to those from contemporary units of other electricity generating technologies located in the area.
