GVK Power & Infrastructure Ltd. Company History and Annual Growth Details

The GVK is a diversified business house with interests in a range of businesses
including power, roads, urban infrastructure, bio-science, hotels and manufacturing.
GVK has promoted or has equity investments in TAJGVK Hotels and Resorts Limited,
Novopan Indistries Limited, GVK Biosciences Private Limited, GVK Jaipur-Kishangarh
Expressway Private Limited.

In recent years the Promoters through our Promoter Group Companies have increasingly
focused on the power and infrastructure sector. G.V. Krishna Reddy, the Chairman &
Managing Director of GVKPIL, is a first generation entrepreneur who established the
business four decades ago.

The Company was incorporated in the National Capital Territory of Delhi on December
2, 1994 as Jegurupadu Operating & Maintenance Company, a private company with
unlimited liability, under the Companies Act, 1956. The Company was converted from a
company with unlimited liability to a company with limited liability and consequently the
name was changed to Jegurupadu Operating & Maintenance Company Private Limited
on April 20, 2005. Subsequently, our Company was converted from a private limited
company to a public limited company on May 19, 2005 and the name was changed to
Jegurupadu Operating & Maintenance Company Limited. Thereafter, the name of the
Company was changed to GVK Power & Infrastructure Limited on July 13, 2005.

The Company is the holding company of the power businesses of the GVK and provides
operations and maintenance services to its power assets. It has an equity stake in GVK
companies engaged in the generation of electricity in the State of Andhra Pradesh, namely
GIL, the company's Subsidiary, and GPL, Associate Company. It also the O&M Contractor for
the power plants of GIL and GPL.

GVKPIL was originally promoted by our Promoters and CMS Energy, USA. CMS Energy, USA
contributed 60% of the equity capital through JOMC, Mauritius and the balance was
contributed by the Promoters through Triumph International.. In February 2005, GVK Reddy
and his family bought the entire stake of Triumph International and JOMC, Mauritius.

GIL was originally promoted in 1992 by the GVK and CMS (USA). The Asian Infrastructure
Fund (through Golden Palm Limited and Vintage Investments Limited) subscribed to 29.75%
of the equity share capital of GIL in 1993. In September 1995, pursuant to an equity
investment of 10%, as well as a loan to GIL, by IFC, the then shareholders of GIL executed a
shareholders agreement to set out their inter-se rights and duties as regards GIL.

GPL was originally incorporated by Satyam Constructions Private Limited (name subsequently
changed to Maytas Infra Private Limited) in 1996. Subsequently, IJM Corporation Berhard
(Malayasia) joined as strategic equity partner. In 2000 NCC Power Corporation Limited, another
IPP based in Andhra Pradesh, merged with Gautami Power Private Limited through a Scheme
of Amalgamation. As a result of the merger the shareholders of GPL were Maytas Infra Private
Limited along with their affiliates, IJM Corporation Berhard (Malayasia) through its subsidiary
and NCC Power Corporation Limited. In July 2003, the Promoters through GVK Energy Holdings
Private Limited (originally GVK Power Private Limited) took over the Company as a strategic
equity partner and assumed the responsibility of implementing the power project and also
contributed to the equity of the project, and executed an agreement in July 2003. Currently,
equity contribution to the extent of 38.38% to the paid up equity of GPL has been made by
GVKPIL, which is proposed to be increased to 51% through the infusion of part of the IPO
proceeds. The other equity share holdings of Maytas, IJM and NCC are 17.71%, 25.09% and
18.82%, respectively. See "History and Certain Corporate Matters- Gautami Power Limited-
Agreement among the shareholders of the GPL" on page [*] of this Draft Red Herring
Prospectus for further details.

The Company has tied up the entire financial assistance of Rs.10,150 million (constituting
70% of the project cost of Rs 14,500 million) from various lenders, lead by Power Finance
Corporation Limited (PFC). As a part of the security mechanism Maytas, IJM, NCC and
GVKPPL and their respective affiliates were required to pledge 51% of their respective
shareholding on the current paid up capital of the GPL with PFC. Accordingly, GVK Energy
Holdings Private Limited and Transoceanic Projects Limited, Mauritius (affiliates of GVKPPL)
have pledged 51% of their holding in GPL with PFC. In October 2005 GVKPIL acquired
GVKPPL and Transoceanic Projects Limited’s equity stake in GPL. Accordingly, 51% of the
equity shares in GPL now held by GVKPIL continue to remain pledged with PFC.
