The said amendment offered an option to Companies to recognise Foreign Exchange Gains and Losses arising on translation of all long term monetary assets and liabilities acquired upto 31st March, 2009, retrospectively from accounting periods commencing after 7th December, 2006 ( i.e. from 1st April, 2007 for the company) upto 31st March, 2011, The Company had chosen to exercise the option in preparation of financial statements in the year ended 31st March, 2009.

The Company continues, upon the extension granted by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, to exercise the option offered in paragraph 46 of the Accounting Standard (AS 11) relating to ''The effects of changes in foreign exchange rates'' to capitalise foreign exchange difference on translation of long term monetary liabilities to cost of Assets where used to acquire such assets and in case of other long term monetary item to Foreign Currency Monetary Item Translation Difference Account (FCMITDA). The amount so recognised as capital cost of acquisition of assets is to be depreciated over the balance life of the relevant assets. In case of the amount recognised in the FCMITDA to be amortised over the balance term of the monetary asset or liability but not beyond 31st March, 2020, aggregate Rs 28.32 million.

Accordingly Foreign exchange differences adjusted against the cost of the assets/ CWIP aggregates Rs 588.23 million (loss), amount in ''Foreign Currency Monetary Item Translation Difference Account'' (FCMITDA) aggregates Rs 66.50 million (loss) and amortised in the current year amounts to Rs 38.18 million.

2 (e) Hedge Reserve:

In order to recognise the impact of fluctuation in foreign currency rates arising out of instruments acquired to hedge highly probable forecast transactions, in appropriate accounting periods, the company applies the principles of recognition set out in the Accounting Standard 30- Financial Instruments - Recognition and Measurement (AS-30) as suggested by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Accordingly, the unrealised gain/(loss) (net) consequent to foreign currency fluctuations, in respect of effective hedging instruments , represented by simple forward covers, to hedge future exports, are carried as a Hedging Reserve and ultimately set off in the Profit and Loss account when the underlying transaction arises.

The amount outstanding in the Hedge Reserve at the close of the year is Rs 381.64 Million (Debit Balance / Valuation Loss).

2(f) The Equity Shares allotted on exercise of option to convert FCCBs by the Bondholders, and the 10,000,000 equity shares of Rs 2/- each allotted as detailed in Note 2(d) and equity shares issued and allotted on conversion of warrants , if any, before the record date/ book closure for dividend would rank pari passu with the existing share capital reflected in Note 2 in all respect including dividend declared for the year. Dividend for the year has been provided for on 232,794,316 equity shares of Rs 2/- each at the rate recommended by the Board of Directors on the basis of equity shares issued and allotted up to 27th May, 2012.

However, as the Company is unable to estimate further conversions upto the record date set for determining the said eligibility, any further amounts required to be distributed as dividend will be adjusted against the balance in the Profit and Loss account carried forward to the subsequent financial year.

However, the Company has option to redeem the balance of the above Bonds if such balance is less than 10% in aggregate of principal amount of such tranche of bonds originally issued in respect of each tranche, during the redemption exercise period in the manner specified in the offering circular at a premium so as to provide a predetermined yield to the Bondholders.

The Company also has the option to call the Bondholders of Tranche A & Tranche B to mandatorily convert the Bonds into Equity Shares if the Market Price on the specified date provided the holder a gain of at least a 30% over the Early Redemption amount.

# Tranche A of the above FCCBs amounting to USD 40.00 Million outstanding as at April 26, 2012 were redeemed on April 27, 2012 along with the redemption premium amounting to USD 17.03 Million. The premium on redemption aggregating Rs 994.06 Million, (including withholding Tax amounting to Rs 98.96 Million) since crystalised has been adjusted to securities premium account, net of deferred tax asset amounting to Rs 322.52 million, in terms of Section 78(2) (d) of the Companies Act, 1956.

Due to variables currently indeterminate, the premium on actual redemption for Tranche B is not computable and hence will be recognised if and as and when the redemption option is exercised, as a charge to the securities premium account in terms of Section 78(2)(d) of the Companies Act,1956.

The Company has been legally advised by an eminent law firm that the above mentioned Convertible Bonds issued upon terms and conditions set out in the offering circular dated 19th April, 2005, would be outside the purview of Section 117 (C) of the Companies Act, 1956 as regards creation of Debenture Redemption Reserve. The Auditors have relied upon the said legal opinion.

18. The Company had issued Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds (FCCBs) in two tranches aggregating USD 79.90 million, detailed in the table below, to finance Capital Expenditure and Global Acquisitions. The said bonds are optionally convertible into GDRs/ Equity Shares to be exercised at any time during the exercise period at a pre determined initial price subject to adjustments upon occurrence of certain events.

The Company also has the option to call the Bondholders of Tranche A & Tranche B to mandatorily convert the Bonds into Equity Shares, if the Market Price on the specified date, provided the holder a gain of atleast a 30% over the Early Redemption amount.

Due to variables currently indeterminate, the premium on actual redemption for Tranche A & B is not computable and hence, will be recognised if and as and when the redemption option is exercised, as a charge to the securities premium account in terms of Section 78(2)(d) of the Companies Act,1956.

The Company has been legally advised by an eminent law firm that, the above mentioned Convertible Bonds issued upon terms and conditions set out in the offering circular dated 19th April, 2005, would be outside the purview of Section 117(C) of the Companies Act, 1956 as regards creation of Debenture Redemption Reserve.

19. Debenture Redemption Reserve has been created in accordance with circular No. 9/2002 dated 18th April, 2002 issued by Department of Company Affairs, Ministry of Law, Justice and Company Affairs, Government of India and Section 117(C) of the Companies Act,1956 at 25% of the maturity amount equally over the terms of the Debentures Privately placed.

21. The Accounting Standard (AS-11) "The effects of changes in Foreign Exchange Rates" prescribed by Companies (Accounting Standards) Rules, 2006 was amended on 31st March, 2009, vide a notification dated 31st March, 2009, by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. The said amendment offered an option to Companies to recognise Foreign Exchange Gains and Losses arising on translation of all long term monetary assets and liabilities acquired upto 31st March, 2009, retrospectively from accounting periods commencing after 7th December, 2006 (i.e. from 1st April, 2007 for the Company) upto 31st March, 2011, as capital cost of acquisition of assets where they relate to acquisition of assets or to a Translation Reserve viz. "Foreign Currency Monetary Item Translation Difference Account" (FCMITDA) in other cases. The amount so recognised as capital cost of acquisition of assets is to be depreciated over the balance life of the relevant assets and in case of the amount recognised in the FCMITDA is to be amortised, over the balance term of the monetary assets or liability, but not beyond 31st March, 2011.

The Company had chosen to exercise this option in preparation of its financial statements from the year ended 31st March, 2009. Accordingly, Foreign exchange differences adjusted against the cost of the assets/ CWIP aggregates Rs 34.88 million (gain), amount in "Foreign Currency Monetary Item Translation Difference Account " (FCMITDA) aggregates Rs 4.44 million (gain) and amortised in the current year amounts to Rs 39.20 million.

22. Bharat Forge America Inc. (BFA), a wholly owned subsidiary, has registered losses which have substantially eroded its Net worth. The Auditors of the Company have, given current adverse conditions prevailing in the American auto industry, disclaimed expression of any opinion on the validity of the assumption of going concern, the basis on which the financial statements have been prepared. In November 2010, the Management of BFA has successfully negotiated union contract resulting in considerable wage decrease for each of the next 3 years. This will help BFA in correcting the cost structure and targeting new business. Also, the Management of BFA, as at 31st December, 2010, has tested the assets for impairment, the results of which do not indicate any impairment losses and hence, the dimunition in the value of the Company’s investment in this subsidiary is not considered to be of permanent nature.

23. In order to recognise the impact of fluctuation in foreign currency rates arising out of instruments acquired to hedge highly probable forecast transactions, in appropriate accounting periods, the Company applies the principles of recognition set out in the Accounting Standard-30 - Financial Instruments - Recognition and Measurement (AS-30) as suggested by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Accordingly, the unrealised gain/(loss) (net) consequent to foreign currency fluctuations, in respect of effective hedging instruments, represented by simpleforward covers, to hedge future exports, are carried as a Hedging Reserve and ultimately set off in the Profit and Loss Account when the underlying transaction arises.

The amount outstanding in the Hedge Reserve at the close of the year is Rs 13.98 million.

30. Significant accounting policies followed by the Company are as stated in the statement annexed to this schedule.

31. Figures less than Rs 5,000/- have been shown at actuals in bracket as the figures have been rounded off to the nearest second decimal to millions.

32. Previous financial year’s figures have been regrouped wherever necessary to make them comparable with those of the current year.
