Based on the nature of Company''s business and the time between the acquisition of assets for processing and their realisation in cash and cash equivalents, the Company has ascertained its operating cycle as 12 months for the purpose of current and non current classification of assets and liabilities.

2.2 Tangible Assets

Tangible Assets are stated at acquisition cost, net of accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses. Subsequent expenditures related to an item of fixed assets are added to its book value only if they increase the future benefit from the existing assets beyond its previously assessed standard of performance. Items of fixed assets that have been retired from active use and are held for disposal are stated at the lower of their net book value and net realisable value and are shown separately in the financial statement under the head "Other current assets". Any expected loss is recognized immediately in the Statement of Profit and Loss. Losses arising from the retirement of, and gains or losses arising from disposal of fixed assets which are carried at cost are recognised in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

2.3 Depreciation

Depreciation is provided on a pro-rata basis on the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, based on the technical evaluation done by the management''s expert, which are higher than those useful lives specified under Schedule II to the Companies Act, 2013, in order to reflect the actual usage of the assets The estimates of useful lives of the assets are as follows:

2.4 Intangible Assets

(a) Acquired intangible assets:

Intangible Assets are stated at acquisition cost, net of accumulated amortization and accumulated impairment losses, if any. Intangible assets are amortised on a straight line basis over their estimated useful lives. The amortisation period and the amortisation method are reviewed at least at each financial year end. If the expected useful life of the asset is significantly different from previous estimates, the amortisation period is changed accordingly.

Gains or losses arising from the retirement or disposal of an intangible asset are determined as the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset and recognised as income or expense in the Statement of Profit and Loss. The estimated useful lives of intangible assets are as follows:

Asset Useful life

Computer Software-external 3 Years

Goodwill 3 Years

Project specific softwares are amortized over a period of the project''s duration.

(b) Research and development cost

Research costs are expensed as incurred. Development expenditure incurred on an individual project is recognised as an intangible asset when all of the following criteria are met:

- It is technically feasible to complete the intangible asset so that it will be available for use or sale.

- There is an intention to complete the asset

- There is an ability to use or sale the asset

- The asset will generate future economic benefits

- Adequate resources are available to complete the development and to use or sell the asset

- The expenditure attributable to the intangible asset during development can be measured reliably.

Following the initial recognition of the development expenditure as an asset, the cost model is applied requiring the asset to be carried at cost less any accumulated amortisation and accumulated impairment losses. Amortisation of the asset begins when development is complete and the asset is available for use and it is amortised on a straight line basis over the estimated useful life.

2.5 Impairment of Assets

For the purpose of assessing impairment, the smallest identifiable group of assets that generates cash inflows from continuing use that are largely independent of the cash inflows from other assets or groups of assets, is considered as a cash generating unit. If any such indication exists, an estimate of the recoverable amount of the asset / cash generating unit is made. Assets whose carrying value exceeds their recoverable amount are written down to the recoverable amount. Recoverable amount is higher of an asset''s or cash generating unit''s net selling price and its value in use. Value in use is the present value of estimated future cash flows expected to arise from the continuing use of an asset and from its disposal at the end of its useful life. Assessment is also done at each Balance Sheet date as to whether there is any indication that an impairment loss recognised for an asset in prior accounting periods may no longer exist or may have decreased.

All assets and liabilities have been classified as current or non-current as per the Company's normal operating cycle and other criteria set out in the Schedule VI to the Companies Act,1956. Based on the nature of products and the time between the acquisition of assets for processing and their realisation in cash and cash equivalents, the Company has ascertained its operating cycle as 12 months for the purpose of current - non current classification of assets and liabilities.

2.2. Changes in accounting policy

Dividend income from subsidiary companies: The Company was complying with the requirement of pre-revised Schedule VI of recognising dividend declared by subsidiary companies after the reporting date if they related to the period which closed on or before the reporting date, till March 31, 2011. In the absence of similar requirement in the Revised Schedule VI, the Company has now changed its accounting policy in order to comply with the require- ments of AS 9: Revenue Recognition, which requires dividend income to be recognised when the right to receive dividend is established.

Had the Company continued to follow the earlier accounting policy, the dividend income recognised in the State- ment of Profit and Loss would have been higher by Rs. 71,200,000 and other current assets would have been higher by Rs.71,200,000.

2.3 Tangible Assets

Tangible Assets are stated at acquisition cost, net of accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses. Losses arising from the retirement of and gains or losses arising from disposal of fixed assets which are carried at cost are recognised in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

2.4 Intangible Assets

Intangible Assets are stated at acquisition cost, net of accumulated amortisation and accumulated impairment losses, if any. Intangible assets are amortised on straight line basis over their estimated useful lives. The amortisa- tion period and the amortisation method are reviewed at least at each financial year end. If the expected useful life of the asset is significantly different from previous estimates, the amortisation period is changed accordingly.

2.5 Depreciation and Amortisation

Depreciation is provided on a pro-rata basis on the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the as- sets or the rates prescribed under Schedule XIV of the Companies Act, 1956, whichever is higher, as follows;

Leasehold Land Over the period of lease

Leasehold Improvements 3 years or lease period whichever is lower

Computers, Related Accessories and Software 2-5 years

Further, computer systems and software are technically evaluated each year for their useful economic life and the unamortised depreciable amount of the asset is charged to Statement of Profit and Loss as depreciation over their revised remaining useful life.

2.6 Impairment of Assets

Assessment is done at each Balance Sheet date as to whether there is any indication that an asset (tangible and intangible) may be impaired. For the purpose of assessing impairment, the smallest identifiable group of assets that generates cash inflows from continuing use that are largely independent of the cash inflows from other assets or groups of assets, is considered as a cash generating unit. If any such indication exists, an estimate of the recov- erable amount of the asset / cash generating unit is made. Assets whose carrying value exceeds their recoverable amount are written down to the recoverable amount. Recoverable amount is higher of an asset's or cash generating unit's net selling price and its value in use. Value in use is the present value of estimated future cash flows expected to arise from the continuing use of an asset and from its disposal at the end of its useful life. Assessment is also done at each Balance Sheet date as to whether there is any indication that an impairment loss recognised for an asset in prior accounting periods may no longer exist or may have decreased.

2.7 Investments

Investments that are readily realisable and are intended to be held for not more than one year from the date, on which such investments are made, are classified as current investments.
