SJVN Ltd. Company History and Annual Growth Details

Our Company was incorporated on May 24, 1988 under the Companies Act with the RoC under the name
'Nathpa Jhakri Power Corporation Private Limited'. The word 'Private' was deleted under Section 620 read
with Section 21 and 23 of the Companies Act with effect from November 3, 1988. Subsequently, pursuant to the
shareholders resolution dated September 17, 2002, the name of the Company was changed from 'Nathpa Jhakri
Power Corporation Limited' to 'Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam Limited' as the operations of our Company were
based in and around the river Sutlej. Consequent thereto a fresh certificate of incorporation dated November 11,
2002 was issued by the RoC. Further, pursuant to the shareholders resolution dated September 10, 2009, the
name of the Company was again changed from 'Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam Limited' to 'SJVN Limited' as the
operations of our Company expanded and were no longer confined to the area in and around the river Sutlej. By
the same resolution dated September 10, 2009, the Company was converted into a public limited company.
Accordingly a fresh certificate of incorporation dated September 22, 2009 was issued by the RoC.
