Internal Risk Factors
1. The finalisation of tariff payable to us by HPSEB is subject to approval of the financial package by CEA and subsequent approval of tariff by the Himachal Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (“Commission”).
The financial package so approved and tariff so finalised may adversely affect the Company’s profitability and liquidity The Government of India Guidelines dated January 12, 1995 prescribe a formula for determination of the tariff of a power plant. This formula, as contained under the PPA, stipulates reimbursement of various cost components in the form of tariff to the Company based on the capital cost of the project. This capital cost has to be first approved by the State Electricity Board, then by the relevant State Government followed by the CEA. Subsequently, the tariff is determined by State Electricity Regulatory Commission.
The cost and means of financing of Rs.16,120 million for the Power Project was appraised by the Lenders and the financial package of Rs. 16,201.50 million was submitted by the Company to HPSEB. The HPSEB and GoHP approved the capital cost of the Power Plant at Rs.15,500 million and submitted the same to the CEA for approval.
The Company is still awaiting the approval of the CEA for the financial package. On completion, the final cost of the project stands at Rs.16,247.20 million due to marginal increases in the civil cost and cost of transmission line works. This project completion cost however excludes liabilities on account of payment to SJVNL for Interconnection Facilities and implementation of CAT Plan together amounting to approximately Rs. 426.16 million.
