CGPL, an SPV formed for setting up and operating the 4000 MW Mundra UMPP announced synchronization of its 800 MW sized Unit 2 on 19th July and commercial operations on 30th July 2012.

CGPL posted Revenues of INR 285.07 crore in Q1FY13. PAT stood at INR (164.78) crore and is mainly due to first unit being operational. The unexpected rise in coal price has not only affected our Mundra project but all imported coal based projects. Senior leaders from the industry met Hon'ble PM and requested PMO to resolve this issue.
Further, TATA Power had contracted coal from Indonesia on terms, which were mirror of bid tariff for coal for CGPL. However, since Indonesian Government has changed the export norms for coal from their country, Tata Power can't get imported coal based on contracted terms. CGPL has also filed a petition with CERC for revision of tariff.
