The Company has utilised the issue proceeds as per the objects of the issue stated in the prospectus dated 25th November 2013 i.e. funding of capital expenditure and refinancing for meeting the debt requirement in ongoing projects, including recoupment of expenditure already incurred.

7. "Due to variation in the Gross Calorific Value (GCV) of coal supplied by coal companies and received at power stations, the Company w.e.f. October/November 2012 released payments on the basis of GCV measured at station end and the difference between the amount billed by the coal companies and the amounts admitted by the Company (“disputed billed amount”) were disclosed as contingent liability with corresponding possible reimbursements from the beneficiaries. The issue was taken up with the coal companies directly and through the Ministry of Power and Ministry of Coal, Govt. of India for resolution. This resulted in incorporation of a provision for “Third party sample collection, preparation, testing and analysis” at the loading end in place of joint sampling in the Coal Supply Agreement (CSA), 2012 and amendment to CSA, 2009 which have since been signed with subsidiaries of Coal India Ltd. (CIL) "

Based on the advice of Government of India, Board of Directors approved the modalities for extrapolation of the third party sample analysis results for the three month period starting October/November 2013 to the supplies during the past period from October/November 2012 till start of third party sampling. On this basis, settlement with some of the CIL subsidiaries has been reached and matter has been taken up with other CIL subsidiaries for early resolution. Following the principles approved by the Board, against the disputed billed amount of Rupee 410,287 lakh, during the year the Company paid Rupee 143,869 lakh and provided Rupee 144,039 lakh. In respect of the balance disputed billed amount of Rupee 122,379 lakh as at 31st March 2014, taking into account settlements already reached with some of the CIL subsidiaries, an amount of Rupee 105,514 lakh (previous year Rupee 253,110 lakh) has been estimated as contingent liability with corresponding possible reimbursements from the beneficiaries and the remaining amount of Rupee 16,865 lakh is considered as settled. Sales corresponding to variable charges recoverable for the amounts paid/provided as above have been recognized.

8. During the previous quarter, a defined contribution pension scheme of the Company has been implemented effective from 1st January 2007. Employee benefits expense for the year include Rupee 34,656 lakh as additional contribution for the period from 1st January 2007 to 31st March 2013.

10. Claims recoverable as at 31st March 2014 include Rupee 42,600 lakh (previous year Rupee 89,472 lakh) recoverable from Government of India (GOI) towards the cost incurred in respect of one of the hydro power projects, the construction of which has been discontinued on the advice of the Ministry of Power, GOI. During the year, a payment of Rupee 53,630 lakh has been received from GOI on this account in the first phase. Management expects that the total cost incurred, anticipated expenditure on the safety and stabilisation measures, other recurring site expenses and interest costs as well as claims of contractors/vendors for various packages for this project will be compensated in full by the GOI. Hence, no provision is considered necessary.

11. The environmental clearance ('clearance') granted by the Ministry of Environment and Forest, Government of India (MoEF) for one of the Company's project was challenged before the National Green Tribunal (NGT). The NGT disposed the appeal, inter alia, directing that the order of clearance be remanded to the MoEF to pass an order granting or declining clearance to the project proponent afresh in accordance with the law and the judgment of the NGT and for referring the matter to the Expert Appraisal Committee ('Committee') for its re-scrutiny, which shall complete the process within six months from the date of NGT order. NGT also directed that the environmental clearance shall be kept in abeyance and the Company shall maintain status quo in relation to the project during the period of review by the Committee or till fresh order is passed by the MoEF, whichever is earlier. The Company filed an appeal challenging the NGT order before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India which stayed the order of the NGT and the matter is sub-judice. Aggregate cost incurred on the project upto 31st March 2014 is Rupee 445,573 lakh (previous year Rupee 169,163 lakh).

12. During the quarter, the Company has paid an interim dividend of Rupee 4.00 per equity share (face value Rupee 10/-each) for the year 2013-14. The Board of Directors has recommended final dividend of Rupee 1.75 per equity share (face value Rupee 10/- each). The total dividend (including interim dividend) for the financial year 2013-14 is Rupee 5.75 per equity share (face value Rupee 10/-each).

13. The audited accounts are subject to review by Comptroller and Auditor General of India under Section 619(4) of the Companies Act, 1956.

14. Formula used for computation of coverage ratios DSCR = Earning before Interest, Depreciation, Tax and Exceptional items /(Interest net of transferred to expenditure during construction + Principal repayment) and ISCR = Earning before Interest, Depreciation, Tax and Exceptional items/(Interest net of transferred to expenditure during construction).

15. Previous periods/years figures have been regrouped/rearranged wherever necessary.

16. Figures of last quarter are the balancing figures between audited figures in respect of the full financial year and the published year to date figures upto the third quarter of the current financial year.
