The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with Indian GAAP required the Management to make estimates and assumptions considered in the reported amounts of assets and liabilities (including contingent liabilities) and the reported income and expenses during the period. The Management believes that the estimates used in preparation of the financial statements are prudent and reasonable. Future results could differ due to these estimates and the differences between the actual results and the estimates as are recognised in the periods in which the results are known/materialise.

An impairment loss is recognised wherever the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the recoverable amount. The impairment loss is charged to the Statement of Profit & Loss in the year in which an asset is identified as impaired. An impairment loss recognised in prior accounting periods is reversed if there has been change in the estimate of the recoverable amount.

2.6 Investments

Contributions to Provident Fund and Superannuation Fund, which are defined contribution schemes, are made to a government administered Provident Fund and to recognised trust respectively, and are charged to the statement of Profit and Loss as incurred. The Company has no further obligations beyond its contributions to these funds.

Current tax is the amount of tax payable on the taxable income for the year as determined in accordance with the applicable tax rates and the provisions of the Income Tax Act, 1961 and other applicable tax laws.

Deferred tax is recognised on timing differences, being the differences between the taxable income and the accounting income that originate in one period and are capable of reversal in one or more subsequent periods. Deferred tax is measured using the tax rates and the tax laws enacted or substantively enacted as at the reporting date. Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all timing differences. Deferred tax assets are recognised for timing differences of items other than unabsorbed depreciation and carry forward losses only to the extent that reasonable certainty exists that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which these can be realised. However, if there are unabsorbed depreciation and carry forward of losses and items relating to capital losses, deferred tax assets are recognised only if there is virtual certainty that there will be sufficient future taxable income available to realise the assets. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset if such items relate to taxes on income levied by the same governing tax laws and the Company has a legally enforceable right for such set off. Deferred tax assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date for their reliability.

2.14 Government Grants

Where the grant or subsidy relates to an asset, its value is deducted in arriving at the carrying amount of the related asset. Project capital subsidy is credited to Capital Reserve. Other government grants or subsidies including export incentives are credited to the statement of Profit and Loss or deducted from related expenses.

2.15 Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets

Provisions are recognized when there is a present obligation as a result of past events and it is probable that there will be an outflow of resources to settle the obligation in respect of which a reliable estimate can be made.

Monetary items denominated in foreign currencies and outstanding at the year-end are translated at year-end rates. Exchange differences arising on settlement of monetary items at rates different from those at which they were initially recorded are recognized as income or as expenses in the statement of Profit & Loss for the year in which they arise. Premium/discount on forward exchange contracts, which are not intended for trading or speculation purposes, are amortised over the period of the contracts if such contracts relate to monetary items as at the balance sheet date. Any profit or loss arising on cancellation or renewal of such forward exchange contract is recognised as income or expense in the period in which such cancellation or renewal is made.

2.17 Segment reporting

The Company identifies primary segments based on dominant source, nature of risks and returns and the internal organisation and management structure. The operating segments are the segments for which separate financial information is available and for which operating profit/loss amounts are evaluated regularly by the Executive Management in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance.

The accounting policies adopted for segment reporting are in line with accounting policies of the company. Segment revenue, segment expenses, segment assets and segment liabilities have been identified to segments on the basis of their relationship to the operating activities of the segment.

2.18 Cash flow statement

Cash flows are reported using the indirect method, whereby profit / (loss) before extraordinary items and tax is adjusted for the effects of transactions of non-cash nature and any deferrals or accruals of past or future cash receipts or payments. The cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities of the Company are segregated based on the available information.

Based on the nature of products/activities of the Company and the normal time between acquisition of assets and their realization in cash or cash equivalents, the Company has determined its operating cycle as twelve months for the purpose of classification of assets and liabilities as current and non-current.
