"Pursuant to the acquisition of 100 per cent stake of UPCL (Udupi Power Corporation Ltd) by the company with effect from April 20, 2015, the figures for the current quarter are not fully comparable with the figures of corresponding quarter," the company said in a filing to BSE.

In a statement, the firm said that the consolidated total income for the quarter decreased by 6 per cent to Rs 5,587 crore compared to Rs 5,945 crore in the corresponding period in financial year 2015-16.
"Billed availability during Q1 FY17 for Mundra was 93 per cent , Tiroda 71 per cent , Kawai 97 per cent and Udupi was 94 per cent. The shortfall in income from Tiroda was due to non-availability of water which was partially compensated by higher revenue at Kawai where PLF was 86 per cent and at Udupi where PLF was 79 per cent," the statement added.
"EBIDTA during the quarter increased by 21 per cent from Rs 1,623 crore in Q1 FY16 to Rs 1,957 crore in Q1 FY17, due to lower coal cost and improved performance from Kawai and Udupi plant," it said adding that "the consolidated net loss reduced from Rs 172 crore in Q1 FY16 to Rs 34 crore in Q1 FY17."
