Why Price Variation Clause?

The variation in prices in the Electrical Industry created unexpected conflicts between the Client and the Manufacturers. To resolve this problem the Manufacturers came together to form the Indian Electrical manufacturers’ Association (IEMA, later with addition of Electronics changed to IEEMA).IEEMA came up with the concept of Price Variation Clauses as a strong solution to contend with these problems. The Price Variation Clauses, based on robust allocation & analysis of prices of various raw materials become not only the most reliable but also the only source of realistic solution for variation matters.

What are Price Variation Clauses?

IEEMA Price Variation Clauses (PVC) are used in settling claims between purchaser and supplier for variation in the basic price of raw materials from the period of tendering till the date of delivery. These clauses are widely accepted by the industry and purchasing organizations, since they give variations on both sides, either upwards or downwards. By substituting the prices of raw materials in the given formulae appropriately the percentage variation over quoted price can be worked out mathematically.

Raw Material Prices/Indices

The basic prices and indices are calculated on the basis of raw material prices, exclusive of excise/C.V. duty wherever manufacturers are eligible to obtain MODVAT benefit.

These basic prices and indices are for operation of IEEMA’s Price Variation Clauses for various products. Basic prices variation clauses, explanation of nomenclature may be obtained from IEEMA office.

Every care has been taken to ensure correctness of reported prices and indices. However, no responsibility is assured for correctness. Authentic raw material prices and indices are available in IEEMA’s basic price variation circulars applicable to various IEEMA PV clauses. These circulars are available on a nominal remittance.
