In line with the Regulations, 2009, the CERC has issued provisional/final tariff orders w.e.f. 1stApril 2009 for all the stations except for Talcher Thermal Power Station (TTPS). Beneficiaries are billed in accordance with the said provisional/final tariff orders except for three stations where it is done on provisional basis. The amount billed for the year ended 31st March 2013 on this basis is Rupee 61,79,468 lakh (previous year Rupee 59,96,557 lakh).

The APTEL disposed off the appeals favourably directing the CERC to revise the tariff orders as per directions and methodology given. Some of the issues decided in favour of the Company by the APTEL were challenged by CERC in the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India. Subsequently, CERC has issued revised tariff orders for all the stations except one for the period 2004-09, considering the judgment of APTEL subject to disposal of appeals pending before the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India. Consequently, the impact of the aforesaid issues amounting to (-) Rupee 4,595 lakh has been recognised as sales for the year ended 31st March 2013 (previous year (-) Rupee 4,916 lakh) with corresponding adjustment in 'Provision for tariff adjustment'.

6. Vide gazette notification F No.22021/1/2008-CRC/II dated 30.12.2011 issued by Ministry of Coal (MoC), grading and pricing of non-coking coal was migrated from Useful Heat Value (UHV) to Gross Calorific Value (GCV) based system w.e.f. 1st January 2012. The Coal Supply Agreements (CSAs) entered into by the Company were required to be amended to incorporate acceptable procedures for sample collection, preparation, testing and analysis, to facilitate such migration, which are still pending. The Company's Board of Directors approved payments to the coal companies based on the GCV based pricing system, and directed to frame modalities for implementation of GCV based grading system. Accordingly, modalities were framed to effect joint sampling and testing of coal at mine end/station end and future payments to coal companies. The above modalities were communicated to the coal companies w.e.f. October/ November 2012, thereafter the Company released payments on the basis of GCV measured at station end following the implementation of the said modalities since variation in the GCV of coal supplied and received at power stations was noticed. The Company regularly informed coal companies about this variation which has not been accepted by them. The issue has been taken up with the coal companies directly and through the MoP and MoC, GOI for resolution. Pending resolution of the issue, difference between the amount billed by the coal companies and the amount admitted by the company amounting to Rupee 2,53,110 lakh (previous year RupeeNil) has been disclosed as contingent liability with corresponding possible reimbursements from the beneficiaries.

7. Government of India, Ministry of Power vide its letters F.No.6/1/2007-Fin.(Vol.VIII) dated 5th February 2013 and 29th March 2013 directed Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) to release payment towards settlement of dues of erstwhile Delhi Electric Supply Undertaking (DESU) amounting to Rupee 83,597 lakh as principal and Rupee 1,68,411 lakh as interest to the company. Consequently, provision for doubtful debt of Rupee 83,597 lakh has been written back and interest of Rupee 1,68,411 lakh has been recognised as an exceptional item in the Statement of Profit and Loss during the year.

8. Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India through Circular no. 25/2012 dated 9th August 2012 has clarified that para 6 of Accounting Standard (AS) 11 and para 4 (e) of AS 16 shall not apply to a Company which is applying para 46-A of AS 11. Accordingly, Company has modifed the related accounting policies. Consequently, exchange differences arising on settlement/translation of foreign currency loans to the extent regarded as an adjustment to interest costs as per para 4 (e) of AS 16 and hitherto charged to Statement of Profit and Loss, have now been adjusted in the cost of related assets. As a result, profit for the year ended 31st March 2013 is higher by Rupee 1,480 lakh, fixed assets are higher by Rupee 17,356 lakh and Deferred Income from Foreign Currency Fluctuation is higher by Rupee 15,876 lakh.

9. During the year, the Company reviewed its policy for accounting of carpet coal which was hitherto charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss and capitalised the cost of carpet coal with the coal handling plant. Consequently, tangible assets and profit for the year are higher by Rupee 2,036 lakh.

10. Claims recoverables include Rupee 89,472 lakh (previous year Rupee 76,612 lakh) towards the cost incurred upto 31stMarch 2013 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. This includes Rupee10,965 lakhs (previous year Nil) in respect of two arbitration awards challenged / being challenged by the Company before High Court. In the event the High Court grants relief to the Company, the amount will be adjusted against Short Term Provisions - Others. 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 various packages of contractors/vendors for this project will be compensated in full by the GOI. Hence no provision is considered necessary.

11. During the quarter, Government of India has divested 9.50% of the paid up equity capital of the Company by way of offer for sale through stock exchange mechanism as provided by SEBI circular CIR/MRD/DP/18/2012 dated 18th July 2012 and circular no. CIR/MRD/DP/04/2013 dated 25th January 2013.

12. During the quarter, the Company has paid an interim dividend of Rupee 3.75 per equity share (face value Rupee 10/-each) for the year 2012-13. The Board of Directors has recommended final dividend of Rupee 2.00 per share (including special dividend of Rupee 1.25) (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.
