For the period upto and including the year ended 31st March, 2016, the Company prepared its financial statements in accordance with the accounting standards notified under section 133 of the Companies Act, 2013, read together with para 7 of the Companies (Accounts) rules, 2014 (Indian GAAP).

Accordingly, the Company has prepared its financial statements to comply with Ind AS for the year ending 31st March, 2017 together with comparative date as at end for the year ended 31st March, 2016 as described in the summary of significant accounting policies. In preparing these financial statements, the Company’s opening balance sheet was prepared as at 1st April, 2015. The Company’s date of transition to Ind AS. This note explains the principles adjustments made by the Company in restating its Indian GAAP financial statements, including the balance sheet as at 1st April, 2015 and the financial statement as at and for the year ended 31st March, 2016.

1. I nd AS 101 allows first-time adopters certain exemptions from the retrospective application of certain requirements under Ind AS. The Company has availed the following exemptions and exceptions:

A. Deemed cost for property, plant and equipment

The Company has elected to continue with the carrying value of all of its plant and equipment and intangible assets as recognized as of 1st April, 2015 (transition date) measured as per the previous GAAP and use that carrying value as its deemed cost as of the transition date.

B. Estimates

An entity’s estimates in accordance with Ind AS at the date of transition to Ind AS shall be consistent with estimates made for the same date in accordance with previous GAAP (after adjustments to reflect any difference in accounting policies), unless there is objective evidence that those estimate were in error.

Ind AS estimate as at 1st April, 2015 are consistent with the estimates as at the same date made in conformity with previous GAAP The Company made estimate for following items in accordance with Ind AS as the date of transition as these were not required under previous GAAP

- Investment in equity instruments carried at FVPL or FVOCI;

- Investment in debt instruments carried at FVPL and Impairment of financial assets based on expected credit loss model.

4. Notes to the Reconciliation of equity as at 1st April, 2015 and 31st March, 2016 and Total Comprehensive Income for the year ended 31st March, 2016

A. Fair valuation of Investments

Under the previous GAAP, investment in equity instruments and mutual funds were classified as long- term investments or current investments based on the intended holding period and reliability. Long- term investments were carried at cost less provision for diminution other than temporary, in the value of such investments. Current investments were carried at lower of cost and fair value. Under Ind AS, these investments are required to be measured at fair value. The resulting fair value changes of these investments (other than equity instruments designated as at FVOCI) have been recognized in retained earnings as at the date of transition and subsequently in the profit or loss for the year ending 31st March, 2016. This has resulted an increase in the retained earnings.

Fair value changes with respect to investments in equity instruments designated as at FVOCI have been recognized in FVOCI -Equity investments reserve as at the date of transition and subsequently in the comprehensive income for the year ended 31st March, 2016.

B. Deferred Tax

I GAAP rebus\ires deferred tax accounting using the income statement approach, which focuses on differences between taxable profits and accounting profits for the period. Ind AS 12 requires to account for deferred taxes using the balance sheet approach, which focuses on temporary differences between the carrying amount of an asset or liability in the balance sheet and its tax base. The application of Ind AS 12 approach has resulted in recognition of deferred tax on new temporary differences which was not required under IGAAP

In Addition, deferred tax adjustments is also done for transitional adjustments wherever they results in timing differences by corresponding adjustments to retained earnings or profit and loss account.

C. Proposed dividend

Under the previous GAAP, dividends proposed by the board of directors after the balance sheet date but before the approval of the financial statements were considered as adjusting events. Accordingly, provision for proposed dividend was recognized as a liability. Under Ind AS, such dividends are recognized when the same is approved by the shareholders in the general meeting. Accordingly, the liability for proposed dividend included under provisions has been reversed with corresponding adjustment to retained earnings. Consequently, the equity increased by an equivalent amount.

D. Remeasurements of post-employment benefit obligations

Under Ind AS, remeasurements i.e. actuarial gains and losses and the return on plan assets, excluding amounts including in the net interest expense on the net defined benefit liability are recognized in other comprehensive income instead of profit or loss. Under the previous GAAP, these re measurements were forming part of the profit or loss for the year. As a result of this change, the profit for the year ended 31st March, 2016 has decreased. There is no impact on the total equity as at 31st March, 2016.

E. Asset classified as held for sale

Under previous GAAP, assets having carrying value of '' 776 Lacs were disclosed as ‘Asset held for sale” Considering at the low visibility of their sale, these assets are now reclassified under Property, Plant and Equipment and depreciation on these assets from the date they were classified as held for sale till reclassification has been charged with corresponding adjustment to retained earnings or Profit and loss account. Consequently, the equity decreased by an equivalent amount.

F. Other Comprehensive Income

Under Ind AS, all items of income and expense recognized in a period should be included in profit or loss for the period, unless a standard requires or permits otherwise. Items of income and expense that are not recognized in profit or loss but are shown in the statement of profit and loss as other comprehensive income includes re-measurement of defined benefits plans and fair value gains or losses on FVOCI equity instruments. The concept of other comprehensive income did not exist under previous GAAP.

The Company has standard operating procedures and investment policy for deployment of surplus liquidity, which allows investment in debt securities and mutual fund schemes of debt categories only and restricts the exposure in equity markets.

Compliances of these policies and principles are reviewed by internal auditors on periodical basis.

The Corporate Treasury team updates the Audit Committee on a quarterly basis to about the implementation of the above policies. It also updates to the Internal Risk Management Committee of the Company on periodical basis about the various risk to the business and status of various activities planned to mitigate the risk.

Market Risk:

Market risk is the risk of loss of future earnings, fair values or future cash flows that may result from a change in the price of a financial instrument. The value of a financial instrument may change as a result of changes in the interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates, commodity prices, equity prices and other market changes that affect market risk sensitive instruments. Market risk is attributable to all market risk sensitive financial instruments including investments and deposits, foreign currency receivables, payables and borrowings.

Foreign Currency Risk:

Foreign currency risk is the risk of impact related to fair value or future cash flows of an exposure in foreign currency, which fluctuate due to changes in foreign exchange rates. The Company’s exposure to the risk of changes in foreign exchange rates relates primarily to import of raw materials and spare parts, capital expenditure, exports of textile yarn and nylon chips.

When a derivative is entered into for the purpose of being a hedge, the Company negotiates the terms of those derivatives to match the terms of the hedged exposure.

The Company evaluates exchange rate exposure arising from foreign currency transactions. The Company follows established risk management policies and standard operating procedures. It uses derivative instruments like foreign currency forwards to hedge exposure to foreign currency risk.

Above foreign currency exposure is hedged by forward contracts and accordingly the company does not have any unhedged foreign currency exposure.

Interest rate risk:

Interest rate risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates. The Company’s exposure to the risk of changes in market interest rates relates primarily to the Company’s short term borrowing. The Company constantly monitors the credit markets and rebalances its financing strategies to achieve an optimal maturity profile and financing cost.

Note: If the rate is decreased by 100 bps profit will increase by an equal amount.

Interest rate sensitivity has been calculated assuming the borrowings outstanding at the reporting date have been outstanding for the entire reporting period.

Forward Exchange Contracts:

Derivatives for hedging foreign currency risk with respect to outstanding payable/receivables & highly probable forecasted transaction:

Credit Risk Management:

Credit risk arises when a customer or counterparty does not meet its obligations under a financial instrument or customer contract, leading to a financial loss. The Company is exposed to credit risk from its operating activities (primarily trade receivables) and from its financing/ investing activities, including deposits with banks, mutual fund investments, and investments in debt securities, foreign exchange transactions and financial guarantees. The Company has two major clients which represents 78% receivables as on 31st March, 2017 and company is receiving payments from these parties within due dates. Hence, the company has no significant credit risk related to these parties.

Trade receivables

Trade receivables are consisting of a large number of customers. The Company has credit evaluation policy for each customer and based on the evaluation credit limit of each customer is defined. Wherever the Company assesses the credit risk as high the exposure is backed by either letter of credit or security deposits.

As per simplified approach, the Company makes provision of expected credit losses on trade receivables using a provision matrix to mitigate the risk of default payments and makes appropriate provision at each reporting date wherever outstanding is for longer period and involves higher risk.

All the Trade Receivables are less than 6 months and hence there is no provision as per expected credit loss model.

Investments, Derivative Instruments, Cash and Cash Equivalent and Bank Deposit

Credit Risk on cash and cash equivalent, deposits with the banks/financial institutions is generally low as the said deposits have been made with the banks/financial institutions who have been assigned high credit rating by international and domestic rating agencies.

Credit Risk on Derivative Instruments are generally low as Company enters into the Derivative Contracts with the reputed Banks and Financial Institutions.

Investments of surplus funds are made only with approved Financial Institutions/ Counterparty. Investments primarily include investment in units of mutual funds. These Mutual Funds and Counterparties have low credit risk.

Total Non-current and current investments as on 31st March, 2017 is Rs, 9803 lacs (31st March , 2016 - Rs, 7977 lacs ; 1st April, 2015- Rs, 1713 lacs) Liquidity risk:

Liquidity risk is defined as the risk that the Company will not be able to settle or meet its obligations on time or at reasonable price. Prudent liquidity risk management implies maintaining sufficient cash and marketable securities and the availability of funding through an adequate amount of credit facilities to meet obligations when due. The Company’s treasury team is responsible for liquidity, funding as well as settlement management. In addition, processes and policies related to such risks are overseen by senior management. Management monitors the Company’s liquidity position through rolling forecasts on the basis of expected cash flows.

The table below provides details regarding the remaining contractual maturities of financial liabilities and investments at the reporting date based on contractual undiscounted payments.

5(B) FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS (IND AS 113):

The fair values of the financial assets and liabilities are included at the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced or liquidation sale.

The Company has established the following fair value hierarchy that categorizes the values into 3 levels. The inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value of financial instruments are:

Level 1: This hierarchy uses quoted (unadjusted) prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. The fair value of all bonds which are traded in the stock exchanges is valued using the closing price or dealer quotations as at the reporting date.

Level 2: The fair value of financial instruments that are not traded in an active market (For example traded bonds, over the counter derivatives) is determined using valuation techniques which maximize the use of observable market data and rely as little as possible on company specific estimates. The mutual fund units are valued using the closing Net Asset Value. If all significant inputs required to fair value an instrument are observable, the instrument is included in Level 2.

Level 3: If one or more of the significant inputs is not based on observable market data, the instrument is included in Level 3.

The management assessed that fair value of cash and bank balances, trade receivables, trade payables, cash credits, commercial papers and other financial assets and liabilities approximate their carrying amounts largely due to the short-term maturities of these instruments.

The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair values:

(a) The fair values of the quoted investments/units of mutual fund schemes are based on market price/net asset value at the reporting date.

(b) The fair value of forward foreign exchange contracts is calculated as the present value determined using forward exchange rates and interest rate curve of the respective currencies.

(c) The fair value of the remaining financial instruments is determined using discounted cash flow analysis or based on the contractual terms. The discount rates used is based on management estimates.

6. SEGMENT REPORTING (IND AS 108):

The Company is exclusively engaged in the business of synthetic yarn related products primarily in India. As per Ind AS 108 “Operating Segments” specified under Section 133 of the Companies Act, 2013, there are no reportable operating or geographical segments applicable to the Company.

b) Defined Benefit Plans - Gratuity and Provident Fund Gratuity:

Inherent Risk - The plan is defined benefit in nature which is sponsored by the Company and hence it underwrites all the risks pertaining to the plan. In particular, this exposes the Company to actuarial risk such as adverse salary growth, change in demographic experience, inadequate return on underlying plan assets. This may result in an increase in cost of providing these benefits to employees in future. Since the benefits are lump sum in nature, the plan is not subject to any longevity risks.

The Company operates a gratuity plan which is administered through Life Insurance Corporation and a trust which is administered through trustees. Every employee is entitled to a minimum benefit equivalent to 15 days salary last drawn for each completed year of service in line with Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. However, certain employees are entitled to benefit higher than the benefit prescribed under Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. The same is payable at the time of separation from the Company or retirement, whichever is earlier or death in service.

xiii) The estimates of future salary increases considered in actuarial valuation takes into account inflation, seniority, promotion and other relevant factors.

Provident Fund:

The Company makes contribution towards Provident fund for certain eligible employees to the trust, set up and administered by the Company, in line with the Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952. The plan guarantees interest at the rate notified by the Provident Fund Authorities. The contribution by the employer and employee together with the interest accumulated thereon are payable to employees at the time of their separation from the company or retirement, whichever is earlier. The benefits vest immediately on rendering of the services by the employee. The rules of the trust provides that if the board of trustees are unable to pay interest at the rate declared by the government under Para 60 of the Employees provident fund scheme, 1972 for the reason that the return on investment is less or for any other reason, then the deficiency shall be made good by the Company making interest shortfall a defined benefit plan. Accordingly, the Company has obtained actuarial valuation and based on the below provided assumptions there is no deficiency as at the balance sheet date. Hence, the liability is restricted towards monthly contributions only.
