3. a) The CERC notified the Tariff Regulations, 2014 in February 2014 (Regulations, 2014). Pending issue of provisional/final tariff orders w.e.f. 1st April 2014 for all the stations, beneficiaries are billed in accordance with the tariff approved and applicable as on 31st March 2014 as provided in the Regulations 2014. The amount provisionally billed for the year ended 31st March 2015 is  Rupee 73,70,399 lakh (previous year Rupee 68,70,403 lakh).

b)The Company has filed a petition before the Hon'ble High Court of Delhi contesting certain provisions of the Regulations, 2014. Pending issue of provisional/final tariff orders under Regulations, 2014 by the CERC and disposal of the petition, sales have been provisionally recognised at  Rupee 73,13,381 lakh for the year ended 31stMarch 2015 (previous year Rupee 69,59,612 lakh) on the basis of said Regulations.

c) Sales for the year ended 31st March 2015 include  Rupee 67,962 lakh (previous year Rupee 2,08,682 lakh) pertaining to previous years recognized based on the orders issued by the CERC/Appellate Tribunal for Electricity (APTEL).

d) Sales for the year ended 31st March 2015 include (-) Rupee 1,39,942 lakh (previous year (-) Rupee 26,999 lakh) on account of income-tax payable to the beneficiaries as per Regulations, 2004. Sales also include Rupee 11,396 lakh for the year ended 31st March 2015 (previous year Rupee 7,702 lakh) on account of deferred tax materialized which is recoverable from beneficiaries as per Regulations, 2014.

4.Provision for current tax for the year includes tax related to earlier years amounting to (-) Rupee 1,95,253 lakh (previous year (-) Rupee 43,696 lakh).

5. During the year, one thermal unit of 660 MW at Barh w.e.f. 15th November 2014, solar PV power capacity of 20 MW at Rajgarh w.e.f. 30th April 2014 and solar PV power station of 15 MW at Singrauli w.e.f 31st December 2014 have been declared commercial.

6. 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 2015 is Rupee 8,73,244 lakh (previous year Rupee 4,45,573 lakh). Management is confident that the approval for proceeding with the project shall be granted, hence no provision is considered necessary.

7. The Company is executing a hydro power project in the state of Uttrakhand, where all the clearances were accorded. A case was filed in Hon’ble Supreme Court of India after the natural disaster in Uttrakhand in June 2013 to review whether the various existing and ongoing hydro projects have contributed to environmental degradation. Hon’ble Supreme Court of India on 7th May 2014, ordered that no further construction shall be undertaken in the projects under consideration until further orders, which included the hydro project of the Company. In the proceedings, Hon’ble Supreme Court is examining to allow few projects which have all clearances which includes the project of the Company where the work has been stopped. Aggregate cost of Rupee 15,457 lakh (previous year Rupee 14,546 lakh) incurred on the project up to 31st March 2015 is included in non-current assets. Management is confident that the approval for proceeding with the project shall be granted, hence no provision is considered necessary.

8. Claims recoverable as at 31st March 2015 include Rupee 46,628 lakh (previous year Rupee 42,600 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. 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.

9.In accordance with the principles approved by the Board of Directors of the Company, the dispute with coal suppliers on account of GCV has been settled. Accordingly, against the total disputed billed amount of Rupee 2,57,874 lakh (previous year Rupee 4,10,287 lakh) as at 31st March 2014, during the year the Company has paid Rupee 1,77,351 lakh and provided Rupee 2,548 lakh and remaining amount of Rupee 77,975 lakh is settled. Sales corresponding to energy charges recoverable for the amounts paid/provided as above have been recognized on settlement.

10. The Company has revised the accounting policy for depreciation of certain assets in alignment with Schedule-II to the Companies Act, 2013 which has become applicable from 1st April 2014. Consequently, profit for the year ended 31st March 2015 is lower by Rupee 1,497 lakh and fixed assets as at 31st March 2015 are lower by Rupee 2,044 lakh. Further, an amount of Rupee 358 lakh (net of deferred tax of  Rupee 189 lakh) has been recognized in the opening balance of the retained earnings where the remaining useful life of such assets is Nil as at 1st April 2014 in line with the provisions of Schedule-II to the Companies Act, 2013.

11. In line with the accounting policy on advance against depreciation, excess of depreciation charged in the books over the depreciation recovered in tariff, amounting to Rupee 20,832 lakh upto 31st March 2014 has been recognised as prior period sales and netted from 'Other expenses'.

12.Regulations, 2014 provide for grossing up of the return on equity based on effective tax rate for the financial year based on the actual tax paid during the year on the generation income. Accordingly, deferred tax provided during the year ended 31st March 2015 on the generation income is accounted as 'Deferred asset for deferred tax liability'. Deferred asset for deferred tax liability for the year will be reversed in future years when the related deferred tax liability forms a part of current tax.

13. During the quarter, the Company out of free reserves issued one 8.49% secured non-cumulative non-convertible redeemable taxable fully paid-up debenture of Rupee 12.50 by way of bonus for each fully paid-up equity share of par value Rupee 10/-. The debenture amount of Rupee 10,30,683 lakh and dividend distribution tax thereon of Rupee 2,06,076 lakh has been debited to general reserve.

14. During the quarter, the Company has paid an interim dividend of Rupee 0.75 per equity share (par value Rupee 10/-each) for the year 2014-15. The Board of Directors has recommended final dividend of Rupee 1.75 per equity share (par value Rupee 10/- each). The total dividend (including interim dividend) for the financial year 2014-15 is Rupee 2.50 per equity share (par value Rupee 10/-each).

15. The audited accounts are subject to review by Comptroller and Auditor General of India under Section 143(6)&(7) of the Companies Act, 2013.

16. 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).

17. Previous periods/year figures have been regrouped/rearranged wherever necessary.

18. 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.
