(XIII) Information pursuant to AS 28.

Cable Divisions at Baripada, Shyamnagar and Project Division constitute three cash generating units (CGU). Common fixed assets have been apportioned among CGUs in the ratio of written down value of fixed assets held by respective units.

Since value in use, arrived at by way of discounting future cash flow as on date as estimated by management during assessed life of plants in terms of technical evaluation for each CGU, exceeds written down value of assets relevant thereon, no provision for any loss on account of impairment of fixed asset has been made in accounts thereby also ruling out the cause of ascertaining the net selling price of the assets.

Discount factor @ 12% p.a has been applied for arriving at as on date-value of future cash flow which includes 2% against risk factors. Certain fixed assets are earmarked for transfer to cable operations at book value for which no impairment is deemed necessary for obvious reason.
