b. Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities on the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the period reported. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

c. Fixed Assets Fixed Assets are stated at the cost of acquisition less accumulated depreciation. All costs incurred in bringing the assets to its working condition for intended use have been capitalized.

d. Intangible Assets Intangible assets are recognized only if it is probable that the future economic benefits that are attributable to the asset will flow to the enterprise and the cost of the asset can be measured reliably. The intangible assets are recorded at cost and are carried at cost less accumulated amortization.

h. Impairment of Assets

The Company periodically assesses whether there is any indication that an asset or a group of assets comprising a cash generating unit may be impaired. If any such indication exists, the Company estimates the recoverable amount of asset. For an asset or group of assets that does not generate largely independent cash inflows, the recoverable amount is determined for the cash-generating unit to which the asset belongs. If such recoverable amount of the asset or the recoverable amount of the cash generating unit to which the asset belongs is less than the carrying amount is reduced to its recoverable amount. The reduction is treated as an impairment loss and is recognized in the Profit and Loss account. If at the Balance Sheet date, there is an indication that if a previously assessed impairment loss no longer exists, the recoverable amount is reassessed and the asset is reflected at the recoverable amount subject to a maximum of depreciable historical cost. An impairment loss is reversed only to the extent that the carrying amount of asset does not exceed the net book value that would have been determined; if no impairment loss has been recognized.

i. Leases

For operating leases, lease payments (including cost for services, such as maintenance) are recognized as an expense in the statement of profit and loss on a straight line basis over the lease term. The lease term is the non-cancelable period for which the lessee has agreed to take on lease the asset together with any further periods for which the lessee has the option to continue the lease of the asset, with or without further payment, which option at the inception of the lease it is reasonably certain that the lessee will exercise.

j. Income-tax

Income-tax expense comprises current tax (i.e. amount of tax for the period determined in accordance with the income-tax law) and deferred tax charge or credit (reflecting the tax effects of timing differences between accounting income and taxable income for the period). The deferred tax charge or credit and the corresponding deferred tax liabilities or assets are recognized using the tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the balance sheet date. Deferred tax assets are recognized only to the extent that there is reasonable certainty that the assets can be realized in future; however, where there is unabsorbed depreciation or carry-forward losses, deferred tax assets are recognized only if there is virtual certainty of realization of such assets. Deferred tax assets are reviewed as at each balance sheet date and written down value or written up to reflect the amount that is reasonably or virtually certain (as the case may be) to be realized.

k. Fringe Benefit Tax

Consequent to the introduction of Fringe Benefit Tax ("FBT") effective 1 April 2005, the Company provides for and discloses FBT in accordance with the provisions of Section 115WC of Income-tax Act, 1961 and the guidance note on FBT issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India respectively.

Diminution in value is provided for where management is of the opinion that the diminution is of other than temporary nature. Short term investments are valued at lower of cost and net realizable value.

n. Earning Per Share
