#Restated-Refer notes to consolidated financial statements



On a Consolidated basis the Operating Revenue was at Rs.29493 crore in FY19 comparedto Rs.26430 crore in FY18. The increase was mainly due to recovery of higher fuel andpower purchase cost related to regulated businesses capacity addition in renewablebusiness and good operational performance by the businesses. The operating profit for theyear under review recorded an 8.72% growth over FY18. Finance costs increased fromRs.3761 crore to Rs.4170 crore largely due to forex other credits in FY18 and otherone-off items. The profits from Joint Ventures (JV) and Associates were lower mainly dueto lower FOB price of coal on account of new regulations in Indonesia impacting the coalmines.

The Consolidated Profit after Tax in FY19 was at Rs.2441 crore compared to Rs.2611crore in FY18 mainly due to lower profits from coal companies on account of lower FOBprice. The current year exceptional items include gain on sale of investments in associatecompanies viz. Tata Communications Limited (TCL) and Panatone Finvest Limited (PFL)partially offset by impairment provisions of Rithala plant. The previous year'sexceptional items include reversal of impairment provision of investment in coal miningmade in earlier years.

[Refer Section 10-Management Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) of this report fordetails]


On a Standalone basis the Operating Revenue stood at Rs.7688 crore in FY19 comparedto Rs.7301 crore in FY18. The increase was mainly due to higher fuel cost and powerpurchase cost being passed through for the regulated business and positive effect ofMulti-Year Tariff (MYT) order for the Mumbai license area.

The profit in FY19 was at Rs.1709 crore as compared to a loss of Rs.3151 crore lastyear. This was mainly due to provision of Rs.4330 crore for impairment of investments inMundra Georgia and Trombay generating station in FY18.

The Earnings per Share (Basic and Diluted) in FY19 stood at Rs.2.63 before exceptionalitems and at Rs.5.90 after exceptional items.

(Refer Section 9-MD&A of this report for details)


CGPL-Coal Mines SBU: Considering the fact that the investment in Indonesian coalmines were made to secure coal supply to CGPL and an adverse impact on CGPL is offset tosome extent by the investment in the coal mines the said investments have been treated asa single Cash Generating Unit (CGU). This has a significant impact on how the impairmentof the combined CGU is assessed every year as per Ind AS 36.

The combined effect of these two had resulted in an impairment of Rs.3555 crore of theinvestment in CGPL in the standalone accounts and reversal of impairment of Rs.1887 crore(part amount of earlier impairment provided) of investment in coal mining companies inconsolidated accounts of FY18.

Entry Tax:

The Company had received demands in respect of entry tax on import of fuel for Trombayplant.

The amount has been recognised as revenue to theextent recoverable from consumers.

Sale of Investments in Associate Companies:

During the year under review the Company sold investments in TCL and PFL which wereclassified as assets held for sale in FY18.

In order to resolve the viability issues of imported coal- based plants in the state ofGujarat a HPC was set up by the Government of Gujarat in July 2018 and after severalrounds of deliberations with various stakeholders like generators distribution companiesconsumer groups lenders and others it submitted its report in October 2018. Thereafterthe Government of Gujarat filed a petition with the Supreme Court of India (SC) forseeking clarification on whether the said report can be implemented and if the existingPPA can be amended. The SC clarified that the PPA can be amended if all the parties to thePPA agree to do so and its own judgement of April 2017 passed in this case shall notprevent such an amendment. It also asked CERC to consider the matter at the earliest.Accordingly the Company has proceeded to amend the PPA with the five states to whom it issupplying power. The Company is in discussion with all the procurers to obtain theirconsent to the proposed amendments.


The Ministry of Environment Forest and Climate Change Government of India(MoEF&CC) vide its notification has revised the environment emissionsnorms mandating all thermal power plants to comply with the same by 2022.

CGPL's PPA provides for considering this as a "Change in Law" event as thislaw was passed after the bidding date (December 2006). Your Company filed a petition withthe CERC for declaring this notification as Change in Law to which the CERC has agreed.This order enables CGPL to recover through tariff the capital cost and additionaloperational expenditure required to be incurred to meet the revised norms.


The Indonesian government in early 2018 introduced a Domestic Market Obligation (DMO)scheme which requires a local coal mining company to sell 25 percent of its production tothe domestic market at a fixed price of USD 70/MT or the market rate whichever is lowerto protect state owned power plants against rising coal prices. This impacted the salerealisation of the mines thereby impacting their profitability. The validity of thepolicy is till December 2019 and the Indonesian Government will review the samethereafter.

The Government of Maharashtra in the meanwhile has issued an Amnesty Scheme forsettlement of arrears of tax interest and penalty levied payable or imposed undervarious acts including Entry Tax. The Company has decided to avail of the scheme andaccordingly recognized a provision of Rs.345 crore towards settlement as per the abovescheme.


MERC vide its order dated 27th February 2018 approved extension of the validity ofthe PPA between Tata Power- Generation (TPC-G) and BEST for 677 MW (excluding Unit#6) till31st March 2019.

Following a re-tendering process BEST signed an agreement on 28th March 2019 to extendthe PPA with TPC-G for a period of five more years till 31st March 2024.

TPC-T has filed an appeal before the Appellate Tribunal (APTEL)challenging the MERC order and sought expeditious disposal of the appeal. The hearings inthe matter are in progress.
