The operations of the company are mainly carried out within the country and therefore, geographical segments are not applicable.


1 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.1,280,172 lakh during the quarter ended 30th June 2010 (previous quarter Rs. 1,197,081 lakh) 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 in para (c).

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 quarter ended 30th June 2010 on this basis is Rs. 1,246,524 lakh (previous quarter Rs. 1,148,541 lakh).

b) Sales of Rs.3,927 lakh (previous quarter Rs.(-) 221 lakh) pertaining to previous years has been recognized based on the orders issued by the CERC/ATE.

c) 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. 102,560 lakh 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 quarter ended 30th June 2010, the provisional sales of Rs.102,560 lakh has now been increased to Rs.105,006 lakh. 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.
