Jaiprakash Power Ventures said the company's performance during the quarter ended 31 December 2012 was adversely impacted by lower water availability in respect of hydro electric plants, namely Baspa-II, Vishnuprayag and Karcham Wangtoo. The performance was also hit adversely due to maintenance work undertaken by UPPCL in a section of transmission line between Vishnuprayag and Muzaffarnagar. The performance was also hit adversely as the stabilisation of Unit I of Bina Thermal Power Plant resulted in lower plant load factor (PLF). Further, in respect of Bina TPP, the depreciation and interest charged is on 70% (approx.) of the cost, capitalised as per Accounting Standard issued by ICAI, whereas the revenue realised is based upon the provisional tariff order of MPERC for the first unit, of 250 WIW, which allows 50% of the cost incurred, Jaiprakash Power Ventures said.
