During the current year, considering that the coal prices, current and forecasts, have substantially reduced in comparison to the coal prices considered at the time the assets were impaired and also considering reduction in prices from March 2015, CGPL''s Management has reassessed the recoverability of the carrying amount of the assets at Mundra, consequent to change in the estimates of future cash flows due to decline in forecast of coal prices.

Mar 31, 2014

1. Background:

The Company, pioneered the generation of electricity in India nine decades ago. Prior to 1st April, 2000 the Tata Electric Companies comprised of the following three Companies -

- The Tata Hydro-Electric Power Supply Company Limited, established in 1910 (Tata Hydro).

- The Andhra Valley Power Supply Company Limited, established in 1916 (Andhra Valley).

- The Tata Power Company Limited, established in 1919 (Tata Power).

With ef ect from 1st April, 2000, Andhra Valley and Tata Hydro merged into Tata Power to result in one large unif ed entity. The Company has an installed generation capacity of 3075 MW in India and a presence in all the segments of the power sector viz. Fuel and Logistics, Generation (thermal, hydro, solar and wind), Transmission and Distribution.

2. In an earlier year, the Company had commissioned its 120 MW Unit 4 thermal power unit at Jojobera, Jharkhand. Revenue in respect of this unit is recognised on the basis of a draft Power Purchase Agreement prepared jointly by the Company and its customer which is pending f nalisation.

3. The Company has been legally advised, that the Company is considered to be established with the object of providing infrastructural facilities and accordingly, Section 372A of the Companies Act, 1956 is not applicable to the Company.

4. (a) The Company has a long-term investment of Rs. 5,928.28 crore (31st March, 2013 - Rs. 5,103.61 crore) (including advance towards equity) and has extended loans amounting to Rs. 1,413.46 crore (including interest accrued) (31st March, 2013 - Rs. 436.57 crore) to Coastal Gujarat Power Limited (CGPL) a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company which has implemented the 4000 MW Ultra Mega Power Project at Mundra ("Mundra UMPP").

CGPL has obligated to charge escalation on 45 percent of the cost of coal in terms of the 25 year power purchase agreement relating to the Mundra UMPP. During the year, CGPL''s Management has re-assessed the recoverability of the carrying amount of the assets at Mundra as of 31st March, 2014 and concluded that no further provision for impairment is necessary (31st March, 2013 - Rs. 2,650 crore).

In estimating the future cash flows, Management has, based on externally available information, made certain assumptions relating to the future fuel prices, future revenues, operating parameters and the assets'' useful life which Management believes reasonably ref ects the future expectation of these items. In view of the estimation uncertainties, the assumptions will be monitored on a periodic basis and adjustments will be made if conditions relating to the assumptions indicate that such adjustments are appropriate.

The Company''s investments in Indonesian Coal Companies including Infrastructure Companies through its subsidiaries, were made to secure long-term coal supply. The Management believes that cash inflows (in the nature of prof t distribution and prof t from sale) from these investments from an economic perspective provide protection from the risk of price volatility on coal to be used in power generation in CGPL, to the extent not covered by price escalations. In order to provide protection to CGPL and to support its cash flows, the Management has committed to a future restructuring under which the Company will transfer at least 75 percent of its equity interests in the Indonesian Coal Companies including Infrastructure Companies to CGPL, subject to receipt of regulatory and other necessary approvals which are being pursued and will also evaluate other alternative options. A valuation of the equity interests in the Indonesian Coal Companies including Infrastructure Companies has been carried out on the basis of certain assumptions, including legal interpretation that there is reasonable certainty that the mining leases would be extended without signif cant cost.

The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiaries, has entered into agreements on 30th January, 2014 for sale of shares in PT Arutmin Indonesia and its associated infrastructure and trading companies. As per the terms of the agreement, it is proposed to sell its stake in these companies, for a consideration of USD 510 million, subject to tax deductions and other closing adjustments. The completion of the sale transaction is conditional upon the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, obtaining requisite consents and certain restructuring actions. The buyer will pay the seller interest on the purchase price from 26th November, 2013 (the ef ective date) till the completion date.

The proposed sale of shares in PT Arutmin Indonesia referred above is consistent with the above intent.

Having regard to the overall returns expected from the Company''s investment in CGPL, including the valuation of investments in the Indonesian Coal Companies including Infrastructure Companies and the proposed future restructuring, no provision for diminution in value of long-term investment in CGPL is considered necessary as at 31st March, 2014.

(b) The Company has an investment in Tata Teleservices Limited (TTSL) of Rs. 735.48 crore (31st March, 2013 - Rs. 735.48 crore). Based on the accounts for the year ended 31st March, 2013, TTSL has accumulated losses which has completely eroded its net worth. In the opinion of the Management, having regard to the long-term nature of the business, there is no diminution other than temporary, in the value of the investment.

(c) The Company has an investment in Haldia Petrochemicals Limited (HPL) of Rs. 22.50 crore (31st March, 2013 - Rs. 22.50 crore). Based on the accounts for the year ended 31st March, 2013, HPL has accumulated losses which have signif cantly eroded its net worth. In the opinion of the Management, having regard to the long-term nature of the business, there is no diminution other than temporary, in the value of the investment.

(d) (i) The Company has invested Rs. 39.30 crore (31st March, 2013 - Rs. 39.30 crore) in and issued guarantees of Rs. 86.93 crore (31st March, 2013 - Rs. 86.93 crore) on behalf of Mandakini Coal Company Limited ("Joint Venture") which had been allotted coal blocks by Government of India through Ministry of Coal.

The Company along with the other Joint Venture Partners has received notices from Ministry of Coal, seeking explanations for delay in development of the blocks and requesting for certain clarif cations as regards various clearances and execution of mining lease, on the basis of which a decision for de-allocation of coal blocks will be taken. The Company is of the view that considering the progress made in land acquisition and obtaining various clearances for development of the coal blocks, there is a case for withdrawal of the notices.

Considering the above, in the opinion of the Management, as at 31st March, 2014, there is no diminution, other than temporary, in the value of investment in the Joint Venture Entity.

(ii) The Company has invested Rs. 17.58 crore (31st March, 2013 - Rs. 11.98 crore) (including advance towards equity) in and issued guarantees of Rs. 11.36 crore (31st March, 2013 - Rs. 11.36 crore) on behalf of Tubed Coal Mines Limited ("Joint Venture") which had been allotted coal blocks by Government of India through Ministry of Coal.

The Company along with the other Joint Venture Partners has received notices from Ministry of Coal, seeking explanations for delay in development of the blocks and requesting for certain clarif cations as regards various clearances and execution of mining lease, on the basis of which a decision for de-allocation of coal blocks will be taken. The Company has filed a writ petition in the High Court so as to restrain the Ministry of Coal from taking any adverse decision in relation to the notice received and also to restrain Ministry of Coal from taking any decision on de-allocation of the coal block. In view of the interim order of the High Court the decision for de-allocation of the Coal Block to the promoters have been kept on hold.

Considering the above, in the opinion of the Management, as at 31st March, 2014, there is no diminution, other than temporary, in the value of investment in the Joint Venture Entity.

(iii) The Hon''ble Supreme Court of India is also evaluating the issue of Coal mine allocations and their judgement is awaited. The above two referred mines are a part of those referred to the Hon''ble Supreme Court.

The Company, on the basis ofilegal opinions obtained, had appealed against the disallowances/deviations at the ATE.

The ATE in its Order dated 20th September, 2012, had disallowed the Company''s claim. Accordingly, during the previous year, the Company had reversed revenue of Rs. 43.61 crore.

The total amount payable by R-Infra, including interest, is estimated to be Rs. 323.87 crore as on 31st December, 2007. ATE in its Order dated 12th May, 2008 on appeal by R-Infra, has directed R-Infra to pay the difference in the energy charges amounting to Rs. 34.98 crore for the period March 2001 to May 2004.

1. Background:

The Company, pioneered the generation of electricity in India nine decades ago. Prior to 1st April, 2000 the Tata Electric Companies comprised of the following three Companies -

- The Tata Hydro-Electric Power Supply Company Limited, established in 1910 (Tata Hydro).

- The Andhra Valley Power Supply Company Limited, established in 1916 (Andhra Valley).

- The Tata Power Company Limited, established in 1919 (Tata Power).

With effect from 1st April, 2000, Andhra Valley and Tata Hydro merged into Tata Power to result in one large unified entity.

The Company has an installed generation capacity of 3075 MW in India and a presence in all the segments of the power sector viz.

Fuel and Logistics, Generation (thermal, hydro, solar and wind), Transmission and Distribution.

2.1. The Company has been providing depreciation on assets at rates and methodology relating to the electricity business in accordance with the Central Government notification under the Electricity (Supply) Act, 1948 (repealed).

Vide its notification dated 31st May, 2011, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has clarified that companies engaged in the generation and supply of electricity can provide for depreciation at rates and methodology notified by Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC). The CERC, under the provisions of The Electricity Act, 2003, notified the rates and methodology effective 1st April, 2009, under the Terms and Conditions of Tariff Regulations, 2009. These rates would be applicable for purposes of tariff determination and accounting in terms of the provisions of National Tariff Policy notified by the Government of India.

Management had sought clarifications and guidance from the MCA on the applicability of the CERC rates as the Company has both regulated and non-regulated generating capacity.

The Company has, during the year ended 31st March, 2013, based on a legal opinion, provided for depreciation in respect of its electricity business following the rates and methodology notified by the CERC w.e.f. 1st April, 2009 and at the rates as per the Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) for capacities covered under PPAs, if higher than those notified by CERC. Accordingly, depreciation of Rs. 219.80 crore for the years 2009-10 to 2011-12 has been written back during the year ended 31st March, 2013. Further the depreciation charge for the year ended 31st March, 2013 is lower by Rs. 48.02 crore. As a result, the current tax for the year ended 31st March, 2013, is higher by Rs. 53.58 crore and the deferred tax charge for the year ended 31st March, 2013 is higher by Rs. 204.28 crore.

2.2. (a) During the previous year, in line with the Notification dated 29th December, 2011 issued by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), the Company had selected the option given in paragraph 46A of the Accounting Standard-11 (AS-11) - "The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates". Accordingly, the depreciated/amortised portion of net foreign exchange (gain)/loss on long-term foreign currency monetary items for the year ended 31st March, 2013 is Rs. 83.84 crore (31st March, 2012 -Rs.39.01 crore). The unamortised portion carried forward as at 31st March, 2013 is Rs. 253.86 crore (31st March, 2012 - Rs. 213.56 crore).

(b) During the previous year, the Company had changed its accounting policy pertaining to accounting for expenditure incurred on purchase/implemenation of application software which hitherto was being charged off in the year of accrual and is now being capitalised and amortised over the useful economic life or 5 years whichever is lower. This results in a more appropriate presentation. As a result of this change, the depreciation and amortisation for the previous year was lower by Rs. 10.07 crore and the profit before tax was higher by Rs. 10.07 crore.

3. In an earlier year, the Company had commissioned its 120 MW thermal power unit at Jojobera, Jharkhand. Revenue in respect of this unit is recognised on the basis of a draft Power Purchase Agreement prepared jointly by the Company and its customer which is pending finalisation.

4. The Company has been legally advised that the Company is considered to be established with the object of providing infrastructural facilities and accordingly, Section 372A of the Companies Act, 1956 is not applicable to the Company.

5. (a) The Company has a long-term investment of Rs. 5,103.61 crore (including advance towards equity) (31st March, 2012 - Rs. 4,112.08 crore) and has extended loans amounting to Rs. 436.57 crore (including interest accrued) (31st March, 2012 - 7248.88crore) to Coastal Gujarat Power Limited (CGPL) a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company which has implemented the 4000 MW Ultra Mega Power Project at Mundra ("Mundra UMPP") and declared commercial operations for all its five Units of 800 MW each.

CGPL has obligated to charge escalation on 45 percent of the cost of coal in terms of the 25 year power purchase agreement relating to the Mundra UMPP. During the year, CGPL''s Management has re-assessed the recoverability of the carrying amount of the assets at Mundra as of 31st March, 2013 and concluded that the cash flows expected to be generated over the useful life of the asset of 40 years would not be sufficient to recover the carrying amount of such assets and has therefore recorded in CGPL''s books as at 31st March, 2013, a provision for an impairment loss of Rs. 2,650.00 crore (31st March, 2012 - Rs. 1,800.00 crore).

In estimating the future cash flows, Management has, based on externally available information, made certain assumptions relating to the future fuel prices, future revenues, operating parameters and the assets'' useful life which Management believes reasonably reflects the future expectation of these items. In view of the estimation uncertainties, the assumptions will be monitored on a periodic basis and adjustments will be made if conditions relating to the assumptions indicate that such adjustments are appropriate.

The Company''s investments in Indonesian coal companies through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Bhira Investments Limited and Khopoli Investments Limited, were made to secure long-term coal supply. The Management believes that cash inflows (in the nature of profit distribution) from these investments from an economic perspective provide protection from the risk of price volatility on coal to be used in power generation in CGPL, to the extent not covered by price escalations. In order to provide protection to CGPL and to support its cash flows, the Management has committed to a future restructuring under which the Company will transfer at least 75 percent of its equity interests in the Indonesian Coal Companies to CGPL, subject to receipt of regulatory and other necessary approvals which are being pursued and will also evaluate other alternative options. A valuation of the equity interests in the Indonesian Coal Companies has been carried out on the basis of certain assumptions, including legal interpretation that there is reasonable certainty that the mining leases would be extended without significant cost.

Having regard to the overall returns expected from the Company''s investment in CGPL, including the valuation of investments in the Indonesian Coal Companies and the proposed future restructuring, no provision for diminution in value of long-term investment in CGPL is considered necessary as at 31st March, 2013.

(b) The Company has an investment in Tata Teleservices Limited (TTSL) of Rs. 735.48 crore (31stMarch,2012 -r735.48crore). Based on the accounts as certified by the TTSL Management for the period ended 31st December, 2012, TTSL has accumulated losses which have significantly eroded its net worth. In the opinion of the Management, having regard to the long-term nature of the business, there is no diminution other than temporary, in the value of the investment also considering the Hon''ble Supreme Court judgement cancelling the three (3) CDMA licenses pertaining to Jammu & Kashmir, Assam and North East Circles of TTSL.

(c) The Company has an investment in Haldia Petrochemicals Limited (HPL) of Rs. 22.50 crore (31stMarch, 2012 - f 22.50 crore). Based on the accounts for the year ended 31st March, 2012, HPL has accumulated losses which have significantly eroded its net worth. In the opinion of the Management, having regard to the long-term nature of the business, there is no diminution other than temporary, in the value of the investment.

(d) In respect of the Standby Charges dispute with Reliance Infrastructure Limited (R-Infra) for the period from 1st April, 1999 to 31st March, 2004, the Appellate Tribunal of Electricity (ATE), set aside the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) Order dated 31st May, 2004 and directed the Company to refund to R-Infra as on 31st March, 2004, Rs. 354.00 crore (including interest of Rs. 15.14 crore) and pay interest at 10% per annum thereafter. As at 31st March, 2013 the accumulated interest was Rs. 184.76 crore (31st March, 2012 - r 173.56 crore) (Rs. 11.20 crore for the year ended 31st March, 2013). On appeal, the Hon''ble Supreme Court vide its Interim Order dated 7th February, 2007, has stayed the ATE Order and in accordance with its directives, the Company has furnished a bank guarantee of the sum of Rs. 227.00 crore and also deposited Rs. 227.00 crore with the Registrar General of the Court which has been withdrawn by R-Infra on furnishing the required undertaking to the Court.

Further, no adjustment has been made for the reversal in terms of the ATE Order dated 20th December, 2006, of Standby Charges credited in previous years estimated at Rs. 519.00 crore, which will be adjusted, wholly by a withdrawal/set off from certain Statutory Reserves as allowed by MERC. No provision has been made in the accounts towards interest that may be finally determined as payable to R-Infra. Since 1st April, 2004, the Company has accounted Standby Charges on the basis determined by the respective MERC Tariff Orders.

The Company is of the view, supported by legal opinion, that the ATE''s Order can be successfully challenged and hence, adjustments, if any, including consequential adjustments to the Deferred Tax Liability Fund and the Deferred Tax Liability Account will be recorded by the Company on the final outcome of the matter.

(e) MERC vide its Tariff Order dated 11th June, 2004, had directed the Company to treat the investment in its wind energy project as outside the Mumbai Licensed Area, consider a normative Debt Equity ratio of 70:30 to fund the Company''s fresh capital investments effective 1st April, 2003 and had also allowed a normative interest charge @ 10% per annum on the said normative debt. The change to the Clear Profit and Reasonable Return (consequent to the change in the capital base) as a result of the above mentioned directives for the period upto 31st March, 2004, has been adjusted by MERC from the Statutory Reserves along with the disputed Standby Charges referred to in Note 32(d) above. Consequently, the effect of these adjustments would be made with the adjustments pertaining to the Standby Charges dispute as mentioned in Note 32(d) above.

(f) During the year 2008-09, in terms of the agreements entered into between Tata Teleservices Limited (TTSL), Tata Sons Limited (TSL) and NTT DoCoMo, Inc. of Japan (Strategic Partner-SP), TSL gave an option to the Company to sell 2,72,82,177 equity shares in TTSL to the SP, as part of a secondary sale of 25,31,63,941 equity shares effected along with a primary issue of 84,38,79,801 shares by TTSL to the SP.

If certain performance parameters and other conditions are not met by TTSL by 31st March, 2014 and should the SP decide to divest its entire shareholding in TTSL and TSL is unable to find a buyer for such shares, the Company is obligated to acquire the shareholding of the SP, at the higher of fair value or 50 percent of the subscription purchase price in proportion of the number of shares sold by the Company to the aggregate of the secondary shares sold to the SP, subject to compliance with applicable exchange control regulations, or should the SP decide to divest its entire shareholding in TTSL and TSL is unable to find a buyer for such shares and the SP divests the shares at a lower price, subject to compliance with applicable exchange control regulations, the Company is obliged to pay a compensation representing the difference between such lower sale price and the price referred to above in proportion of the number of shares sold by the Company to the aggregate of the secondary shares sold to the SP.

Under the above mentioned aggrements with SP, TSL and TTSL have jointly and severally agreed to indemnify SP with the agreed limits against claims arising on account of any failure of certain warranties provided by TSL and TTSL to be true and correct in all respect (amount not determinable) and in respect of specifed contingent liabilities (Company''s share Rs. 31.10 crore). The Company is liable to reimburse TSL, on a pro-rata basis.

8. (a) In the previous year, the Company had provisionally determined the Statutory Appropriations and the adjustments to be made on Annual Performance Review as stipulated under the Multi Year Tariff Regulations, 2011 (MYT Regulation) for its operations in respect of the Mumbai Licensed Area. During the year ended 31st March, 2013, Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) has approved the Multi Year Tariff Business Plan of the Company''s Mumbai Licensed Area for the Second Control Period from FY 2012-13 to FY 2015-16 and directed the Company to submit its Annual Revenue Requirement (ARR) for FY 2011-12 as per old regulations i.e. MERC (Terms and Conditions of Tariff) Regulations, 2005.

In view of the above, during the year, the Company has reversed revenue amounting to Rs. 155.00 crore accrued in the previous year in respect of its Mumbai Licensed Area as per the MYT Regulation.

(b) The Appellate Tribunal for Electricity (ATE) in its Order dated 31st August, 2012, has allowed the Company''s claim regarding certain expenses/accounting principles which were disallowed/not recognised by MERC in earlier years in its true-up order. Accordingly, during the year, the Company has treated such expenses as recoverable and has recognised revenue of Rs. 142.00 crore.

(c) During the year, pursuant to the favourable ATE Order dated 31st August, 2012, true-up order dated 15th February, 2012 and other favourable orders received by other regulated entities in the power sector within Maharashtra, the Company has recognised revenue of Rs. 172.00 crore in respect of earlier years towards carrying cost entitlement on the regulatory assets (net) carried in the books as at 31st March, 2013.

(d) In the previous year, Jharkhand State Electricity Regulatory Commission (JSERC) had determined the Annual Revenue Requirement (ARR) for Units 2 and 3 at Jojobera for financial year 2011-12 by treating the entire capacity as regulated under JSERC (Terms and Conditions for Determination of Generation Tariff) Regulations, 2010. The Company, on the basis of legal opinions obtained, had appealed against the disallowances/deviations at the ATE.

The ATE in its Order dated 20th September, 2012, has disallowed the Company''s claim. Accordingly, during the year, the Company has reversed revenue of Rs. 43.61 crore including Rs. 34.16 crore on account of previous year.

(e) During the previous year, the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) had completed truing-up for the financial years 2009 -10 and 2010 -11 and issued Tariff Orders. In these Tariff Orders, it had disallowed certain claims made by the Company amounting to Rs. 86.00 crore and Rs. 55.00 crore respectively. The Company has filed an appeal to the Appellate Tribunal for Electricity (ATE) against these disallowances. Based on the earlier favourable ATE Order on similar matters, the Company is confident of ATE allowing its claims and accordingly, the above disallowances have not been recognised in the financial results.

9. In the matter of claims raised by the Company on R-Infra, towards (i) the difference in the energy charges for the period March 2001 to May 2004 and (ii) for minimum off-take charges of energy for the period 1998 to 2000, MERC has issued an Order dated 12th December, 2007 in favour of the Company. The total amount payable by R-Infra, including interest, is estimated to be Rs. 323.87 crore as on 31st December, 2007. ATE in its Order dated 12th May, 2008 on appeal by R-Infra, has directed R-Infra to pay the difference in the energy charges amounting to Rs. 34.98 crore for the period March 2001 to May 2004. In respect of the minimum off-take charges of energy for the period 1998 to 2000 claimed by the Company from R-Infra, ATE has directed MERC that the issue be examined afresh and after the decision of the Hon''ble Supreme Court in the Appeals relating to the distribution licence and rebates given by R-Infra. The Company and R-Infra had filed appeals in the Hon''ble Supreme Court. The Hon''ble Supreme Court, vide its Order dated 14th December, 2009, has granted stay against ATE Order and has directed R-Infra to deposit with the Hon''ble Supreme Court, a sum of Rs. 25.00 crore and furnish bank guarantee of Rs. 9.98 crore. The Company had withdrawn the above mentioned sum subject to an undertaking to refund the amount with interest, in the event the Appeal is decided against the Company.

The FCCB may be redeemed, in whole but not in part, at the option of the Company at any time on or after 24th February, 2008 and prior to 15th February, 2010 subject to satisfaction of certain conditions. Unless previously converted, redeemed or repurchased and cancelled, the FCCB fall due for redemption on 25th February, 2010 at 115.734 percent of their principal amount.

Further, provision made for premium on redemption of FCCB by debiting Securities Premium in an earlier year has been reversed to the extent it pertains to the converted FCCB. As a result, balance in Securities Premium Account has increased by Rs. 9.85 crores (31st March, 2009 - Rs. 6.83 crores). Hence, the total increase in Securities Premium Account amounted to Rs. 77.75 crores (31st March, 2009 - Rs. 48.22 crores).

(c) During the year ended 31 st March, 2010, the Company issued 3,000 1.75% Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds (FCCB) with face value of U.S. $ 100,000 each aggregating to U.S.$ 300 million (Rs. 1,404.45 crores at issue, net proceeds received Rs. 1,391.67 crores). The bond holders have an option to convert these Bonds into Equity Shares, at an initial conversion price of Rs. 1,456.125 per share at a fixed rate of exchange on conversion of Rs. 46.81 = U.S. $ 1.00,at any time on and after 31 st December, 2009, upto 11th November, 2014.The conversion price is subject to adjustment in certain circumstances.The FCCB may be redeemed, in whole but not in part, at the option of the Company at any time on or after 20th November, 2011 subject to satisfaction of certain conditions. Unless previously converted, redeemed or repurchased and cancelled, the FCCB fall due for redemption on 21 st November, 2014 at 109.47 percent of their principal amount together with accrued and unpaid interest.

Consequently, there is an increase in the Subscribed Share Capital by Rs.14.84 crores and Securities Premium Account by Rs. 1,616.22 crores (net of issue expenses).

(f) In respect of the Standby Charges dispute with Reliance Infrastructure Ltd. (R-lnfra - formerly Reliance Energy Ltd.) for the period from 1 st April, 1999 to 31 st March, 2004, the ATE, set aside the MERC Order dated 31 st May, 2004 and directed the Company to refund to R-lnfra as on 31 st March, 2004, Rs. 354.00 crores (including interest of Rs.15.14 crores) and pay interest at 10% per annum thereafter. As at 31st March, 2010 the accumulated interest was Rs. 151.16 crores (31st March, 2009 - Rs. 139.96 crores) (Rs.11.20 crores for the year ended 31 st March, 2010).On appeal, the Honble Supreme Court vide its interim order dated 7th February, 2007, has stayed the ATE Order and in accordance with its directives, the Company has furnished a bank guarantee of the sum of Rs. 227.00 crores and also deposited Rs.227.00 crores with the Registrar General of the Court (the Court) which has been withdrawn by R-lnfra on furnishing the required undertaking to the Court.The said deposit has been accounted as "Other Deposits"

Further, no adjustment has been made for the reversal in terms of the ATE Order dated 20th December, 2006 of Standby Charges credited in previous years estimated at Rs. 519.00 crores.The aggregate of Standby Charges credited in previous years, net of tax is estimated at Rs. 430.80 crores, which will be adjusted, wholly by a withdrawal/set-off from certain Statutory Reserves as allowed by MERC. No provision has been made in the accounts towards interest that may be finally determined as payable to R-lnfra. However, since 1st April, 2004,the Company has accounted Standby Charges on the basis determined by the respective MERC Tariff Orders.

The Company is of the view, supported by legal opinion, that the ATEs Order can be successfully challenged and hence, adjustments, if any, including consequential adjustments to the Deferred Tax Liability Fund and the Deferred Tax Liability Account will be recorded by the Company on the final outcome of the matter.

(g) MERC vide its Tariff Order dated 11 th June, 2004, had directed the Company to treat the investment in its Wind energy project as outside the Mumbai Licensed Area, consider a normative Debt Equity ratio of 70:30 to fund the Companys fresh capital investments effective 1 st April, 2003 and had also allowed a normative interest charge @ 10% p.a. on the said normative debt.

The change to the Clear Profit and Reasonable Return (consequent to the change in the Capital Base) as a result of the above mentioned directives for the period upto 31 st March, 2004, has been adjusted by MERC from the StatutoryReserves along with the disputed Standby Charges referred to in Note 10(f) above. Consequently, the effect of these adjustments would be made with the adjustments pertaining to the Standby charges dispute as mentioned in Note 10 (f) above.

(h) During the previous year, in terms of the agreements entered into between Tata Teleservices Ltd.(TTSL),Tata Sons Ltd.(TSL) and NTT DoCoMo, Inc. of Japan (Strategic Partner-SP), the Company was given by Tata Sons an option to sell 2,72,82,177 Equity Shares in TTSL to the SP, as part of a secondary sale of 25,31,63,941 Equity Shares effected along with a primary issue of 84,38,79,801 shares by TTSL to the SP. Accordingly, the company realised Rs. 316.72 crores on sale of these shares resulting in a profit of Rs. 255.62 crores.

If certain performance parameters and other conditions are not met, should the SP decide to divest its entire shareholding in TTSL, acquired under the primary issue and the secondary sale and should TSL be unable to find a buyer for such shares, the Company is obligated to acquire the shareholding of the SP,at the higher of fair value or 50 percent of the subscription purchase price, in proportion of the number of shares sold by the Company to the aggregate of the secondary shares sold to the SP, or if the SP divests the shares at a lower price pay a compensation representing the difference between such lower sale price and the price referred to above.

Further, in the event of breach of the representations and warranties (other than title and tax) and covenants not capable of specific performance, the Company is liable to reimburse TSL, on a pro rata basis, upto a maximum sum of Rs. 409.51 crores.

The exercise of the option by SP being contingent on several variables, the liability if any, is considered by management to be remote and indeterminable.

(i) The Company has investments in 1,09,80,837 shares of Tata Communications Ltd.(TCL) which were acquired from Panatone Finvest Ltd. (Panatone) in current and prior years. In accordance with the terms of the Share Purchase Agreement (SPA) and the Shareholders agreement between Panatone and Government of India (GOI)/Principle Owners of TCL, Panatone has agreed to cause TCL to hive off or demerge certain land it owns into a separate company (the "Resultant Company") pursuant to a scheme of arrangement as further described in the SPA.The proportionate shares received in the Resultant Company are to be transferred to GOI at Nil consideration. Consequently, Panatone would require the Company to give up proportionate shares received in the Resultant Company to enable it meet its obligation.

9. (a) ATE in its Order dated 15th July, 2009, has upheld the Companys claim regarding allowability of certain expenses/ accounting principles which were earlier disallowed/not recognised by MERC in its truing-up for the financial year 2006-07. On this basis, in the current period, the Company has treated such expenses as recoverable through tariff of the current year and has recognized revenue of Rs. 147.00 crores in respect of the financial years 2006-07 to 2008-09.

(b) In respect of the Companys Generation Business as a Licensee, MERC in its Tariff Order dated 28th May, 2009,has drawn from Contingencies Reserve to partially meet the impact on tariff of the ATE Order dated 12th May, 2008, wherein ATE upheld the stand taken by the Company regarding allowability of expenses/accounting principles which were earlier disallowed/not recognised by MERC in its truing-up for financial years 2004-05 and 2005-06. Accordingly, the Company has drawn Rs. 108.83 crores from Contingencies Reserve. Further, the Company has recognised revenue of Rs.105.40 crores and transferred Rs. 24.89 crores from Tariffs and Dividends Control Reserve consequent to the above Order and the Orders pertaining to the Transmission and Distribution Businesses dated 28th May, 2009 and 15th June, 2009 respectively.

The total amount payable by R-lnfra including interest is estimated to be Rs. 323.87 crores as on 31st December, 2007. ATE in its order dated 12th May, 2008 on appeal by R-lnfra, has directed R-lnfra to pay for the difference in the energy charges amounting to Rs.34.98 crores for the period March 2001 to May 2004. In respect of the minimum off-take charges of energy for the period 1998 to 2000 claimed by the Company from R-lnfra, ATE has directed MERC that the issue be examined afresh and after the decision of the Supreme Court in the Appeals relating to the distribution licence and Rebates given by R-lnfra.The Company and R-lnfra have filed appeals in the Supreme Court.The Supreme Court, vide its Order dated 14th December, 2009, has granted stay against ATE order and has directed R-lnfra to deposit with the Supreme Court, a sum of Rs.25.00crores and furnish Bank Guarantee of Rs.9.98 crores.The Company has withdrawn the above mentioned sum subject to an undertaking to refund the amount with interest, in the event the Appeal is decided against the Company.
