2 a)

The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) notified the Tariff Regulations, 2009 in January 2009, containing inter-alia the terms and conditions for determination of tariff applicable for a period of five years with effect from 1st April 2009. Pending determination of station-wise tariff by the CERC, sales have been provisionally recognized at Rs.4,447,393 lakhs during the year ended 31st March 2010 on the basis of principles enunciated in the said Regulations on the capital cost considering the orders of Appellate Tribunal for Electricity (ATE) for the tariff period 2004-2009 including as referred to in para 2 (e).

The Tariff Regulations, 2009 provide that pending determination of tariff by the CERC, the Company has to provisionally bill the beneficiaries at the tariff applicable as on 31st March 2009 approved by the CERC. The amount provisionally billed during the year ended 31st March 2010 on this basis is Rs.4,376,513 lakhs.

b)For the units commissioned during the year, pending determination of tariff by CERC, sales of Rs.173,540 lakhs have been provisionally recognised on the basis of principles enunciated in the Tariff Regulations, 2009. The amount provisionally billed for such units is Rs.153,650 lakhs.
c)Sales of (-) Rs.60,060 lakhs (previous year Rs.102,004 lakhs) pertaining to previous years has been recognized based on the orders issued by the CERC/ATE.
d)In terms of Regulation 39, CERC Tariff Regulations, 2009, notified by the CERC, the Company has determined the amount of the Deferred Tax Liability (net) materialised during the year pertaining to the period upto 31st March 2009 by identifying the major changes in the elements of Deferred Tax Liability/Asset, as recoverable from the beneficiaries and accordingly a sum of Rs.24,847 lakhs (net) has been recognised as Sales during the year.
e)In respect of stations/units where the CERC had issued tariff orders applicable from 1st April 2004 to 31st March 2009, the Company aggrieved over many of the issues as considered by the CERC in the tariff orders, filed appeals with the ATE. The ATE disposed off the appeals favourably directing the CERC to revise the tariff orders as per the directions and methodology given. The CERC filed an appeal with the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India on some of the issues decided by the ATE which is pending. The Company has submitted that it would not press for determination of the tariff by the CERC as per ATE orders pending disposal of the appeal by the Supreme Court.
 Considering expert legal opinions obtained that, it is reasonable to expect ultimate collection, the sales for the tariff period 2004-2009 amounting to Rs.104,429 lakhs were recognised in earlier years based on provisional tariff worked out by the Company as per the methodology and directions as decided by the ATE. Due to further CERC tariff orders received during the year, the provisional sales of Rs.104,429 lakhs has now been reduced to Rs.102,560 lakhs. The sales accounted as above is subject to final outcome of the decision of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India and consequential effect, if any, will be given in the financial statements upon disposal of the appeal.
3Sales includes (-) Rs.71,993 lakhs (previous year Rs.75,828 lakhs) on account of income tax recoverable from customers as per CERC Regulations, 2004 and Rs.24,847 lakhs (previous year Nil) on account of deferred tax recoverable from customers as per CERC Regulations, 2009.
4Provision for current tax for the year is net of tax related to earlier years amounting to Rs.52,539 lakhs (Previous year Rs.139,531 lakhs).

6The pay revision of the employees of the Company was due w.e.f. 1st January 2007.
Based on the guidelines issued by Department of Public Enterprises (DPE), Government of India (GOI), the pay revision of the executive category of employees has been approved during the year. Pending finalisation of pay revision in respect of employees in the non-executive category, provision of Rs.31,446 lakhs and Rs.65,896 lakhs (previous year Rs.17,670 lakhs and Rs. 34,450 lakhs) has been made for the year and upto year respectively on an estimated basis having regard to the guidelines issued by DPE. A sum of Rs.13,869 lakhs (previous year Rs.7,480 lakhs) paid as adhoc advance towards pay revision to the employees in the non-executive category is included in ‘Loans and Advances’ (Schedule 14).
7Effect of changes in Accounting Policies:

Tariff Regulations, 2009 issued by the CERC provide that the balance depreciable value of the each of the existing stations as on 1st April, 2009 shall be worked out by deducting the cumulative depreciation including the Advance Against Depreciation (AAD) as admitted by the CERC up to 31st March 2009 from the gross depreciable value of the assets thereby merging AAD with depreciation for tariff recovery. Under the said Tariff Regulations, the CERC also has notified the revised rates of depreciation and removed the provision for AAD.

In view of the change in CERC Tariff Regulations, 2009, the Company revised its accounting policy no. 12.1.2 and the amount of AAD required to meet the shortfall in the component of depreciation in revenue over the depreciation to be charged off in future years has been assessed station-wise and wherever an excess has been determined as on 1st April 2009, the same amounting to Rs.31,147 lakhs has been recognised as sales during the year. In addition, Rs.530 lakhs has been recognised as sales during the year out of AAD consequent to this change.

b)Claims on the Company for price variation which were hitherto accounted for on acceptance. During the year, unsettled liabilities for price variation/exchange rate variation in case of contracts are accounted for on estimated basis as per terms of the contracts. Consequently, profit for the year is lower by Rs. 199 lakhs, fixed assets are higher by Rs.28,494 lakhs and current liabilities are higher by Rs.28,693 lakhs.
8During the year, the deferred tax liability (net) and the deferred tax recoverable from the beneficiaries as at 31st March 2009 amounting to Rs.513,486 lakhs have been reviewed and restated to Rs.249,425 lakhs. In terms of Regulation 39, CERC Tariff Regulations, 2009, the Company has determined the amount of the deferred tax liability (net) materialised during the year pertaining to the period up to 31st March 2009 by identifying the major changes in the elements of deferred tax liability/asset, as recoverable from the beneficiaries. Accordingly, deferred tax liability (net) and the deferred tax recoverable from the beneficiaries as at 31st March 2010 works out to Rs. 304,940 lakh and Rs.284,024 lakhs respectively.

The net increase during the year in the deferred tax liability is Rs.20,906 lakhs (previous year decrease Rs.44,884 lakhs) has been debited to Profit & Loss Account.
9Fixed assets, capital work-in-progress and construction stores and advances include Rs.67,647 lakhs in respect of one of the hydro power project, the construction of which has been suspended temporarily from 18th May 2009 on the advice of the Ministry of Power, GOI. Presently, the issue regarding resumption of the project is under consideration with the GOI. Pending decision, borrowing costs of Rs.2,374 lakhs have not been capitalised from the date of suspension.
10The Company is executing a thermal power project in respect of which possession certificates for 1,489 acres of land has been handed over to the Company and all statutory and environment clearances for the project have been received. Subsequently, a high power committee has been constituted as per the directions of GOI to explore alternate location of the project since present location is stated to be a coal bearing area. Aggregate cost incurred up to 31st March 2010 Rs.18,311 lakhs is included in Fixed Assets (Schedules 6,7 and 8). Management is confident of recovery of cost incurred, hence no provision is considered necessary.
11During the year, ‘Further Public Offer’ of 412,273,220 equity shares of Rs.10/- each of the Company through an offer for sale by the President of India, acting through the Ministry of Power, GOI was made through the alternate book building process. Consequently, shareholding of the GOI reduced to 84.50% from 89.50%.
12During the quarter, the Company has paid an interim dividend of Rs.3.00 per share (face value Rs.10/-each) for the year 2009-10.
