3. Disclosure in respect of Employee Benefits in keeping with Accounting Standard 15

A. In keeping with the Guidance on implementing Accounting Standard (AS) 15 on Employee Benefits issued by the Accounting Standards Board of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ASB Guidance), employer-established provident fund trusts are treated as Defined Benefit Plans since the Company is obligated to meet interest shortfall, if any, with respect to covered employees.

According to the actuary, acturial valuation cannot be applied to reliably measure provident fund liabilities in absence of guidance from Acturial Society of India. Accordingly, the Company is currently not in a position to provide other related disclosures as required by the aforesaid AS 15 read with the ASB Guidance. However, having regard to the position of the Fund and the return on investments, the Company does not expect any deficiency in the foreseeable future.

B. In keeping with the Companys gratuity scheme (a defined benefit plan), employees joined after 31 st March 2003 are entitled to gratuity benefit (at one half months eligible salary for each completed year of service) on retirement/death/incapacitation/ termination and there is no ceiling for employees joined before 31 st March 2003. Also refer Note 1 (k) for accounting policy relating to gratuity.
