Ø  PAT stood at Rs.  145.93 Cr as compared to  Rs.  (628.75 Cr) in Q4FY12 and Rs. 430.44 Cr in Q1FY12. This is mainly  due to lower profit in Coal Companies owing to lower price realization and higher  cost of production, higher interest and depreciation cost due to commissioning of Mundra and Maithon units and reversal of revenues due to change in effective date of MYT regulations in Mumbai.

Ø  On consolidated Segment-wise performance for the quarter, Revenues from Power business has increased by  30% at Rs.  4824.01 Cr as compared to Rs. 3720.30 Cr in the Q1 FY 12.

Ø  PBIT from Power Business was  at Rs.  578.24 Cr as against Rs. 627.0 Cr in the previous quarter last year, a reduction Rs. 155 Cr mainly due to shifting of MYT regime to 2012-13 onwards in Mumbai.

Ø  PBIT from Coal Business stood at Rs. 257.61 Cr as compared to Rs. 750.07  Cr reported in the Q1 FY 12. Profits were lower in Coal Companies due to lower price realization and higher cost of production. Last years PBIT  was after capitalization  of Rs. 210.65 Cr  of deferred stripping costs. From 1st Jan 2012 no capitalization of deferred stripping cost is being done.


Standalone Revenue grew to Rs. 2284.10 Cr, up 19% as against Rs. 1921.24 Cr in Q1 FY12.

PAT stood at Rs.  312.30 Cr as compared to Rs. 281.56  Cr in corresponding period last year due to  strong operational performance inspite of the reversal of revenues due to change in effective date of MYT  regulations in Mumbai s impacting profits of Rs 155 Cr. During the quarter, other income stood at 345.59 Cr as against Rs 247.58 Cr in the Q1 FY 12.

Commenting on the Company’s performance, Mr. Anil Sardana, MD,said,

“During first quarter of FY13, the Company reported revenue growth of about 20% and profit growth of about 10%  which is highly satisfying.  All our projects and subsidiaries by and large have  performed well. Tata Powers  generation capacity crossed 6000 MW with commissioning of 800 MW unit 2 of the Mundra UMPP, reinforcing our  position as the largest integrated power company in India. The Company crossed 11000 MWh of generation units at Mithapur Solar plant which is a significant milestone that demonstrates efficiency and state of art technology used at the plant. Our Coal Companies posted lower realization due to global economic slowdown and falling coal prices.

By signing the coal supply agreement with PT Antang Gunung Meratus, we have taken proactive steps to ensure imported coal supply for our upcoming power projects to be developed for next 5 years.”


During the quarter under review, the Company continued its robust  operations. Sales volume for the quarter stood at 4227 MUs as compared to 3932 MUs in Q1 FY12. The overall generation was 4259 MUs up 10% as compared to 3889 MUs reported in Q1 FY 12. Trombay Thermal Power Station generated 2542 MUs as compared to 2445 MUs in the Q1 FY 12. Hydro Power Stations generated 389 MUs as compared to 362 MUs. Jojobera Thermal Power Station generated 814MUs as compared to 663 MUs  and Haldia reported generation of  227 MUs as compared to  219 MUs in the corresponding  quarter last year.

Industrial Energy Limited (IEL) reported generation of 457 MUs compared to 399 MUs. Wind Farms performed well and generated  256  MUs compared to  154 MUs in   Q1 FY 12.  Solar plant recorded generation of 1 MU as compared to 1 MU in Q1FY12.


Coastal Gujarat Power Limited (CGPL): CGPL, an SPV formed for setting up and operating the 4000 MW Mundra UMPP  announced synchronization of  its  800 MW sized Unit 2  on 19th July and commercial operations on 30thJuly 2012. Unit 1 is in operation. Work on Units 3, 4 and 5 of the project is on track And progressing well. Blending of 70%  has been achieved successfully through eco-coal that has low sulphur and ash content. CGPL posted Revenues of Rs. 285.07 Cr in Q1FY13. PAT stood at Rs. (164.78) Cr  and is mainly due to first unit being operational. The unexpected rise in coal price has not only affected our Mundra project but all imported coal based projects. Senior leaders from the industry met Honble PM and requested PMO to resolve this issue. Further, Tata Power had contracted coal from Indonesia on terms, which were mirror of bid tariff for coal for CGPL. However, since Indonesian Government has changed the export norms for coal from their country, Tata Power cant get imported coal based on contracted terms. CGPL has also filed a petition with CERC for revision of tariff.
