Assets, liabilities, revenues and direct expenses in relation to segments are categorised based on items that are individually identifiable to that segment, while other items, wherever allocable, are apportioned to the segments on an appropriate basis. Certain items are not specifically allocable to individual segments as the underlying services are used interchangeably. The Company therefore believes that it is not practical to provide segment disclosures relating to such items, and accordingly such items are separately disclosed as ''unallocated''.

5. Segment reporting

The Company has identified Banking and Capital Market, Insurance, Information Technology, Communication and Entertainment and Emerging Industries as primary business segments of the Company.

The accounting policies consistently used in the preparation of the financial statements are also applied to record revenue and expenditure in individual segments. Assets, liabilities, revenues and direct expenses in relation to segments are categorised based on items that are individually identifiable to that segment, while other items, wherever allocable, are apportioned to the segments on an appropriate basis. Certain items are not specifically allocable to individual segments as the underlying services are used interchangeably. The Company therefore believes that it is not practical to provide segment disclosures relating to such items, and accordingly such items are separately disclosed as ''unallocated''.

Client relationships are driven based on client domicile. The geographical segments include United States of America (USA), Asia Pacific (APAC), India and Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA).

Employee Stock Option Plans ('ESOP') - Equity Settled

Effective 1 February 2011, the Company has adopted the policy of accounting employee stock-based compensations using fair-value method in place of intrinsic value method. In the opinion of the Company, fair value method is a more globally accepted method. Measurement and disclosure of the employee share based payments plan is done in accordance with SEBI (Employee Stock Option Scheme and Employee Stock Purchase Scheme) Guidelines, 1999 and the guidance note on accounting for Employee Share Based Payments, issued by Institute of Chartered Accountants of India ('ICAI'). The Company accounts for stock compensation expense based on the fair value of the option granted, determined on the date of grant. Compensation expenses are amortized over the vesting period of the option on the straight line basis.

Had the Company adopted the intrinsic value method of accounting, the employee compensation cost would have been higher by Rs. 610,929 for the year ended 31 October 2011 and profit would have been lower by that extent.

All the ESOPs are in respect of the Company's shares where each stock option is equivalent to one equity share. In accordance with the Guidance Note on "Accounting for Employee Share-based Payments" issued by the ICAI with effect from 1 April 2005, the necessary disclosures have been made for the years ended 31 October 2011 and 31 October 2010 for grants outstanding on and made on or after that date for each of the plans described below (Also refer note 37).

Employees Stock Option Plan 1998 (the 1998 Plan): The Company instituted the 1998 Plan for all eligible employees in pursuance of the special resolution approved by the shareholders in the Annual General Meeting held on 31 July 1998. The 1998 Plan provides for the issuance of 3,720,000 options to eligible employees as recommended by the ESOP Committee constituted for this purpose.

In accordance with the 1998 Plan, the Committee has formulated 1998 Plan - (Version I) and 1998 Plan - (Version II) during the years 1998 - 1999 and 1999 - 2000 respectively.

1998 Plan - (Version I): Each option granted under the 1998 Plan - (Version I), entitles the holder thereof with an option to apply for and be issued one equity share of the Company at an exercise price of Rs. 34.38 per share. The equity shares covered under these options vest at various dates over a period ranging from six to sixty-six months from the date of grant based on the length of service completed by the employee to the date of grant. The options are exercisable any time after their vesting period.

The weighted average share price as at the date of exercise for stock options was Rs. 522.00 (31 October 2010:Rs. 689.1 3). The options outstanding as at 31 October 2011 had an exercise price of Rs. 34.38 (31 October 2010: Rs. 34.38).

1998 Plan - (Version II): Commencing January 2000, the Company decided to grant all future options at the market price immediately preceding the date of grant. The equity shares covered under these options vest at various dates over a period ranging from twelve to forty-eight months from the date of grant based on the grade of the employee. However, in the case of options granted to the then Managing Director or Chief Executive Officer, the vesting period of the options, subject to minimum period of one year from the date of grant, is determined by the ESOP Committee and approved by the Board.

The comparative figures have been restated to reflect information for these new segments.

The accounting policies consistently used in the preparation of the financial statements are also applied to record revenue and expenditure in individual segments. Assets, liabilities, revenues and direct expenses in relation to segments are categorised based on items that are individually identifiable to that segment, while other items, wherever allocable, are apportioned to the segments on an appropriate basis. Certain items are not specifically allocable to individual segments as the underlying services are used interchangeably. The Company therefore believes that it is not practical to provide segment disclosures relating to such items, and accordingly such items are separately disclosed as 'unallocated'.

Client relationships are driven based on client domicile. The geographical segments include United States of America (USA), India & Asia Pacific (APAC) and Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA). Secondary segment information for previous year has been re grouped based on geographical segments of current year.

7. Stock Based Compensation

The Company has therefore adopted the pro-forma disclosure provisions as required by the Guidance Note on "Accounting for Employee Share-based Payments" issued by the ICAI with effect from 1 April 2005.

Had the compensation cost been determined in a manner consistent with the fair value approach described in the aforesaid Guidance Note, the Company's net profit and EPS as reported would have been adjusted to the pro-forma amounts indicated below:

The gratuity expense is grouped under salary and allowances in the profit and loss account. The estimates of future salary increases, considered in actuarial valuation, take account of inflation, seniority, promotion and other relevant factors such as supply and demand factors in the employment market. Expected return on plan assets is computed based on prevailing market rate.

8. Loans and Advances include service tax input credit receivable, (net) of Rs. 2,662,837,992 (31 October 2010: Rs. 2,510,057,550). Based on legal opinion obtained by the Company, service tax liability on imported services under "Import of Services Rules" have been discharged using accumulated balance available in CENVAT Credit Account for the period December 1, 2010 to March 31, 2011. Effective April 1 ,2011 such position is reversed and service tax liability on select imported services under "Import of Services Rules" have been discharged in cash. Further, the Company has obtained legal opinions in support of its position on non applicability of Sec 66A of the Finance Act 1994 read with 'Import of Services Rules' on onsite services provided by foreign vendors (including group companies).

The management, per the legal opinions, is confident that the legal positions taken by the Company are tenable and defendable under law.

9. The Company has entered into joint venture agreements with E - Governance Solutions Private Limited and Strategic Outsourcing Services Private Limited for execution of certain projects jointly.

7. Segment reporting

The Companys operations predominantly relate to providing application development and maintenance (Application) services, business process outsourcing (BPO) services and infrastructure outsourcing (ITO) services delivered to clients operating globally. Secondary segmental reporting is done on the basis of the geographical location of clients.

Application services cover consulting, application development, testing and application maintenance services. BPO services provide voice, transaction based services and knowledge based processes. ITO covers a range of infrastructure management services and service/ technical help desks.

The accounting policies consistently used in the preparation of the financial statements are also applied to record revenue and expenditure in individual segments.

Assets, liabilities, revenues and direct expenses in relation to segments are categorised based on items that are individually identifable to that segment, while other items, wherever allocable, are apportioned to the segments on an appropriate basis. Certain items are not allocable to individual segments as the underlying services are used interchangeably. The Company therefore believes that it is not practical to provide segment disclosures relating to such items, and accordingly such items are separately disclosed as unallocated.

Client relationships are driven based on client domicile. The geographical segments include United States of America (USA), the Middle East and India and Others.

8. The Company is engaged in the business of software development services, projects and professional services. Such services are not capable of being expressed in any generic unit and hence, it is not possible to give the quantitative details required under paragraphs 3, 4C and 4D of Part II of Schedule VI to the Companies Act, 1956.

9. The Company has made a provision of Rs 123,231,404 ( 31 October 2008: Rs Nil) towards claims during the year and the closing balance of such provisions as at the end of the year is Rs 169,101,026 ( 31 October 2008: Rs 45,869,622).

10. The Company has short term working capital facility of USD 5,000,000 or equivalent from a bank. This facility is usable interchangeably by the Company and its subsidiaries in India. The facility has not been utilised as at 31 October 2009.
