The following tables summaries the components of net benefit / expense recognised in the statement of profit and loss and the balance sheet for the respective plans. (Rs. in Lacs)

2. SEGMENT INFORMATION

Business Segments : The Company has only one business segment, i.e., Wagon & Engineering Products and thus no further disclosures are required in accordance with Accounting Standard-17 as notified.

Geographical Segments : The Company primarily operates in India and therefore the analysis of geographical segments is demarcated into its Indian and Overseas Operations. The revenue from operations in the current and previous year is entirely from sale of goods and services within India.

In respect of above cases, based on favorable decisions in similar cases/legal opinions taken by the Company/discussions with the solicitors etc., the management is of the opinion that it is possible, but not probable, that the action will succeed and accordingly no provision for any liability there against has been made in the financial statements.

The legal case pending at various courts referred to above includes a case relating to M/s Uppal Engg Co. Pvt. Ltd. for widening of road against a contract awarded to the Company by the Rajasthan PWD in 1992. Uppal Engg Co had invoked arbitration proceedings against the Company in 1998 for certain claims. The arbitration award was issued during the year, pursuant to which Cimmco has been directed to pay Rs 2,525.85 lacs (Rs 804.22 lacs as principle and Rs 1721.63 lacs as interest). Based on legal opinion obtained, the Company has been advised that it has a strong case to argue its position by filing an appeal against the award with the Hon'ble High Court of Delhi and get substantial relief from the amount demanded. Accordingly, the management do not foresee any liability crystallizing on the Company as a consequence of the award.

(B) The Company had in earlier years, obtained certain advance licenses for making duty free import of inputs subject to fulfillment of export obligation (EO) within the specified time limit from the date of issuance of such licenses. Due to the closure of the factory and cancellation of the export orders, the Company could not fulfill the entire export obligation within the permitted time limit. Subsequently, the Company was referred to the Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction ("BIFR") vide case No. 372/2000 dated 27th November 2000 wherein a rehabilitation package was sanctioned by the BIFR on 11 th March 2010. Pursuant to the rehabilitation scheme, the Company made an application to the Policy Relaxation Committee (PRC) of the Department of Foreign Trade for extension of the EO by further 8 years. The Zonal Director General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) vide its letter dated 21 st December 2010 has extended the EO period up to 31 st March 2016 and the management is confident to achieve the unfulfilled EO within such extended period. The amount of contingent liability towards custom duty saved on unfulfilled export obligations and penal interest if any, is presently unascertainable.

(C) The Company had given 687 wagons to Indian Railways on sub-lease till October 2007 and as per the agreement the sub-lease was renewable at the consent of the Indian Railway on an annual basis. Post the expiry of the original sub-lease term, Indian Railways continued to use the wagons without renewing the sub-lease arrangement. During the previous year, the Company had received a demand of Rs. 1234.20 Lakhs from Titagarh Capital Pvt. Ltd., the lessor of these wagons for the period October 2007 to March 2014. Titagarh Capital Pvt. Ltd. has pursued the matter in the Honourable High Court of Calcutta and the Honourable Court in an interim measure directed the Indian Railway to set apart the lease rentals for the above period, at the last paid rate of rent, in a fixed deposit account till the matter is finally decided. The Company has not provided for this claim since it has a back-to-back claim for the sub-lease on Indian Railways.

3. Excise Duty & Cess on stocks represents differential excise duty and cess on opening and closing stock of finished goods and saleable scrap

4. The financial performance of the Company for the year has been severely impacted by the overall industry scenario and delay in release of wagons procurement orders by the Indian Railways. Further, during the year, the Company has suffered exceptional losses on account of un-remunerative procurement prices set by Indian Railways as a result of intense unhealthy competition and also some tax disputes of the past relating to the pre- acquisition period. Titagarh Wagons Limited, the ultimate parent company is committed to provide suitable financial support to the Company for the near future and has also contributed additional capital amounting to Rs 4,000 lacs in the form of Preference Shares, directly as well as through another of its subsidiary company. The Company is also confident of improvement in the industry scenario and being awarded wagon supply contracts during the next year. In view of the above, these financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis.

5. In view of absence of virtual certainty supported with convincing evidence, the Company has not recognized the deferred tax asset arising on account of brought forward losses and unabsorbed depreciation.

6. Previous period's figures including those given in brackets have been regrouped/reclassified, where necessary, to conform to current year's classification.
