India Power's PAT rises 60% to Rs 26.66 crore in FY21, Customer base increases by 52%

Kolkata, Jun 11 (UNI) India Power Corporation Limited ("India Power"), one of the most efficient

power distribution companies in the country, has reported a profit after tax ("PAT") of Rs 26.66

crore in the financial year 2020-21 ("FY21") as compared to Rs 16.69 crore a year earlier,

registering a growth of 60%.

Accelerated sales growth, procuring power at competitive prices and upgradation of conventional infrastructure to smart utility infrastructure (SCADA, IOT, smart meters, etc.) aided the company's earnings in an otherwise challenging year marked by the global coronavirus pandemic.

India Power's customer base expanded by 52%. The company's sales increased by 2 million units

in FY21 despite the impact of pandemic and lockdown during the first two quarters of the financial

year. Total income for the year was at Rs 518.37 crore.

Load increased by 10% in FY21 from a year ago, while India Power maintained the AT&C losses

at 3%, one of the lowest in the industry, despite adding new domestic connections.

India Power purchased 12.1% of renewable energy in FY21 and plans to increase it to 35% by financial year 2022-23.

Commenting on the results, Somesh Dasgupta, Whole-time Director, India Power, said, "FY21

has been both challenging and exciting for India Power. We were able to overcome the setback of coronavirus pandemic by adding large number of consumers across voltage levels, which resulted

in accelerated sales growth from second quarter onwards. Our ability to procure power

at competitive prices led to cost savings and further improved our earnings."

"Going forward, India Power plans to add industrial consumers across voltage levels from large industries to SMEs and exponentially increase its domestic consumer base by expanding and strengthening network across license area. The company expects over 40% increase in its sales

volume during the current financial year," he added.
