Notes:

1.     Tariff revision awards for 2000-01 and 2001-02 were finalised by the West
       Bengal Electricity Regulatory Commission on 7 November, 2001 and accounts
       for the year 2000-01 were approved by the Board of Directors on 24       
       November, 2001.  In view of the limited time available and since full    
       implications of the award for 2001-02 likely to affect the entire tariff 
       structure are still being studied, the accounting information for the    
       half-year ended 30 September, 2001 have been complied on a reasonably    
       estimated basis and provision for deferred taxation, if any, could not   
       be made.  Hence the above result for the said half-year might require    
       adjustments later.

2.     Results for the previous periods appearing in Columns(2) and (4) have not
       been recast on the basis of 2000-01 tariff revision award and hence      
       figures in the said columns are not strictly comparable.

3.     The Company is engaged in generation and distribution of electricity and 
       does not operate in any other reportable segment.  Pending leave of the  
       Hon'ble Supreme Court in SLP (C) No. 11810 of 2001, the Company has kept 
       in abeyance giving effect to the revised tariff in its consumer billing.

4.     Auditors' Report on the latest audited accounts for the year 2000-01     
       included reference to some unprovided claims of Damodar Valley           
       Corporation/West Bengal State Electricity Board and shortfall in corpus  
       of gratuity fund.  The Company has followed the same basis of accounting 
       in respect of these matters while compiling the above results.
