14.0 ADDITIONAL INITIATIVES

14.1 PRIVATE EQUITY FUND

Your company has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with NPCIL on October 28, 2010 to offer financial assistance as well as other services to NPCIL for its nuclear power capacity addition in the next 20 years.

Apart from the above, your company is also exploring the possibility of extending services in the areas of financing of Hydel projects being developed in Nepal with linkage to India and Hydel projects being developed in Bhutan by Indian entities under Indo Bhutan bilateral treaty.

22.0 ACQUISITION ADVISORY SERVICES

The Company believes that institutional and regulatory reforms in the Indian power sector and increased investor interest will lead to consolidation in the power sector in order to ensure synergies and economies of scale. In addition, the company believes that the increasing supply-demand gap in the power sector has driven the procurement of power from the private sector through competitive bidding. Further, high demand for efficiency and economies in generation are expected to lower the cost of tariff. Open access and power trading are likely to increase competition in the sector in the future.

The company has therefore set up an Acquisition Advisory Services unit to focus on acquisition advisory services for power sector projects, including the identification of target projects and potential acquisitions and consolidation opportunities, and also provide techno- commercial appraisal of target projects.

23.0 RENEWABLE ENERGY AND CLEAN DEVELOPMENT MECHANISM (RE&CDM)

Renewable energy (RE) provides a number of primary and secondary benefi ts which are economic, social, environmental or technical in nature. Some of the key benefits related with renewable energy generation are increased power/energy availability, enhanced access to power in rural/remote areas, increased employment generation, enhanced energy security and environmental benefits. Therefore a good mix of these energy sources in the overall energy mix would enhance sustainable development at the state, national and global level.

Today, in the International Renewable Energy market, India is fast becoming one of the world's most attractive markets for Renewable Energy (RE) investments. India's rise has been due to the effective policy and regulatory support for investment in renewable energy technologies (RETs).

The central government has just launched the Jawaharlal Nehru Solar Mission and the Electricity Regulatory Commissions (CERC and SERCs) are promoting renewable energy generation through preferential tariffs. One of the main drivers in the future for enhancing RE generation is likely to be the mandatory renewable energy purchase obligations for utilities as mandated by the Electricity Act 2003 and declared by the state commissions. Several states have also issued the Renewable Purchase Obligations (RPO).

To tap the Renewable Energy business in state and private sector, your company has created a Strategic Business Unit for handling renewable energy portfolio since August 2008 for giving thrust on Renewable Energy and CDM. During the financial year 2010-11, loans amounting to Rs.974 crores were sanctioned to support a capacity of 202 MW for solar and biomass generation projects in state and private sector.

Your Company is also facilitating SPUs for Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) benefits for R&M of old Thermal & Hydro projects as per mandate from MoP. Four projects in the States of Meghalaya, Andhra Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Maharashtra have been identified for registration with United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The Project Design Documents (PDD) for 4 projects has been prepared through the consultant appointed by Asian Development Bank (ADB). Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF) has accorded host country approval for Koradi Thermal Power Project (Maharashtra), Umiam HEP (Meghalaya) and Giri HEP (Himachal Pradesh).

In order to promote green (renewable and non- conventional) sources of energy, a separate subsidiary company namely PFC Green Energy Limited has been incorporated during the year.

24.0 PROMOTION OF POWER TRADING THROUGH POWER EXCHANGE

In the financial year 2008-09, the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission had granted its permission to set up power exchanges in the country. As on date two power exchanges, namely, Power Exchange India Ltd. (PXIL) and Indian Energy Exchange Ltd. (IEX) are in operation. These power exchanges have a nationwide presence in the form of electronic exchange for trading in power. The trading through power exchanges have certainly lent an impetus for power sector development since it acts as an open and transparent mechanism for buyers and sellers and provides investment signal to the prospective investors. Further with the presence of these exchanges, the available resources shall be used optimally.

In order to promote short term trading through power exchange, your company had promoted National Power Exchange Ltd (NPEX), jointly with NTPC, NHPC and TCS during 2008-09. Your company has contributed Rs.2.19 crore (being 16.66% of paid up equity upto March 31, 2011) towards equity contribution. This exchange is yet to start its operation.

Your company has also contributed Rs.1.75 crore (being 4.37% of paid up equity upto March 31, 2011) towards equity contribution in Power Exchange India Ltd., promoted by NSE and NCDEX.

25.0 EQUITY FINANCING

Equity investment business is generally considered as a logical extension of debt business. Your Company is endeavoring to make a mark in the area of equity investment so as to capitalize on its vast domain experience, attained during its over 20 years of operations in power sector debt financing. PFC aims to leverage its financial strength, large debt providing capability and power sector expertise to invest in equity of attractive power projects. Over a period of time, your company proposes to build an equity portfolio of power assets which could provide consistent gains in the form of dividend and/or capital appreciation.

17.1 CONSORTIUM LENDING GROUP

The unit is also coordinating with developers of IPPs, corporate bodies, prospective lenders for identifying loan syndication proposals and coordinate with members of Power Lenders Club for providing single window facility to power project developers. CLG is thus, dedicated to the needs of those private sector borrowers who have reposed faith in the services of the Company.

17.2 FA CILITATION GROUP

Facilitation Group (FG) has successfully grown business operation in its second year of operations in the emerging areas of power equipment manufacturing financing and fuel linkage financing.

17.3 R E & CDM GROUP

The potential of Renewable Energy to provide clean and sustainable energy is universally accepted. Government of India is giving high focus for promotion of Renewable Energy through Electricity Act 2003 and National Electricity Policy 2006. Renewable Energy has been given

a central place in Government of Indias National Action Plan on climate change. The National Solar Mission is a major initiative of Government of India and State Governments to give impetus to the development of solar power in India. The Mission has set a target of 20,000 MW under phase-I (upto 2013)

The SERCs in various states are making it mandatory for distribution utilities to procure minimum percentage of energy from Renewable Energy generation sources and notifying special tariffs for solar, wind, biomass and small hydro generation projects for purchase of power by State Power Utilities. To tap the Renewable Energy business in state and private sector, the Company is giving enhanced focus on financing of Renewable Energy Projects.

During the current financial year, loans amounting to Rs. 603 crore were sanctioned to support a capacity of 234 MW for wind and small hydro generation projects in State and Private sector. Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) is a Joint Venture of PFC, NTPC, REC & PGCIL formed with equal equity participation amounting to Rs. 190 crore among them with an objective of implementing Energy Efficiency Projects. PFC has played a leadership role in formation of the company. The new company has commenced its operations on 11th February, 2010.

Your Company is also facilitating SPUs for CDM benefits for R&M of old Thermal & Hydro projects as per mandate from MoP.

The PDD for R&M of Machkund Hydro Power project, Umiam HEP (Meghalaya), Giri HEP (Himachal Pradesh) has been submitted to the DNA (MoEF).

18.0 ADDITIONAL INITIATIVES

18.1 ACQUISITION ADVISORY SERVICES

As India is committed to its vision ‘Power for all, the share of private sector is likely to increase to 28% in the XI Plan and to 63% in the XII Plan in terms of capacity addition. This would usher in competition among the private sector players. Besides, current requirement of procurement of power from private sector through competitive bidding as well as from state power utilities from January 2011 would result in lower tariff. The resulting low tariff regime coupled with open access and power trading is likely to bring in fierce competition in future.

The above situation is likely to lead to consolidation in the power sector and hence, the need for assistance and advice in identifying suitable projects/partners for mergers & acquisitions in order to bring in synergies & economies of scale. It is in this backdrop that your company recently took the initiative of creating ‘Acquisition Advisory Services unit in the company. The broad scope of services offered by your company through this unit would include (a) Identification of target project/company for acquisition/mergers (b) preliminary due diligence on the projects and (c) detailed techno- commercial appraisal of projects etc. It will assist its clients in sale and acquisition of power projects, keeping in view the specific needs of its clients. Besides this, the unit has been mandated to explore the possibility of acquisition of a bank/FI, for which action for engaging a consultant is in progress.

18.2 POWER TRADING THROUGH POWER EXCHANGE

In the financial year 2008-09, the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission had granted its permission to set up power exchanges in the country. As on date two power exchanges, namely, Power Exchange India Ltd. (PXIL) and Indian Energy Exchange Ltd. (IEX) are in operation. These power exchanges have a nationwide presence in the form of electronic exchange for trading in power. The trading through power exchanges have certainly lent an impetus for power sector development since it acts as an open and transparent mechanism for buyers and sellers and provides investment signal to the prospective investors. Further with the presence of these exchanges, the available resources shall be used optimally.

In order to promote short term trading through power exchange, your company had promoted National Power Exchange Ltd (NPEX), jointly with NTPC, NHPC and TCS during 2008-09. Your company has contributed Rs. 83.30 lakh (being 16.66% of paid up equity upto 31st March, 2010) towards equity contribution. NPEX has obtained the in-principle approval for setting up of Power Exchange from CERC. This exchange is yet to start its operation.

Your company has also contributed Rs. 1.75 crore (being 5.1% of paid up equity upto 31st March, 2010) towards equity contribution in Power Exchange India Ltd., promoted by NSE and NCDEX.

In order to further boost the short term trading volumes through power exchange, PFC had decided to provide credit facility for purchase of power through Power Exchange India Ltd. (PXIL) in addition to playing the role of Professional Clearing Member (PCM). But the company had discontinued its credit and PCM facility to PXIL in compliance with the ‘Power Market Regulations, 2010, governing power trading activities, among others, notified by CERC in the month of January 2010. However, the company is likely to resume the credit facility to the buyers/sellers in its new role i.e. Financial Associates. In this regard PXIL has already submitted revised Business Rules and ByeLaws, defining the role of ‘Financial Associates, to CERC for its approval.

18.3 EQUITY FINANCING
