1. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING JUDGEMENTS, ESTIMATES AND ASSUMPTIONS

The preparation of the Company''s financial statements requires management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities, and the accompanying disclosures, and the disclosure of contingent liabilities. This note provide an overview of the areas that involve a higher degree of judgment or complexity and of items which are more likely to be materially adjusted due to estimates and assumptions turning out to be different than those originally assessed. Detailed information about each of these estimates and judgments is mentioned below.

Estimates and judgments are continually evaluated. They are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that may have a financial impact on the company and that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.

2 (A) Significant Judgment

a) Legal Contingency

The Company has received orders and notices from tax authorities in respect of direct taxes and indirect taxes. The outcome of these matters may have a material effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows. Management regularly analyzes current information about these matters and provides provisions for probable contingent losses including the estimate of legal expense to resolve the matters. In making the decision regarding the need for loss provisions, management considers the degree of probability of an unfavorable outcome and the ability to make a sufficiently reliable estimate of the amount of loss. The filing of a suit or formal assertion of a claim against the Company or the disclosure of any such suit or assertions, does not automatically indicate that a provision of a loss may be appropriate.

3 (B) Significant estimate

a) Impairment of financial assets

The impairment provisions for financial assets disclosed under note 34C are based on assumptions about risk of default and expected loss rates and timing of the cash flows. The company uses judgement in making these assumptions and selecting the inputs to the impairment calculation, based on the company''s past history, existing market conditions as well as forward looking estimates at the end of each reporting period.

b) Fair valuation of financial instruments

When the fair values of financial assets and financial liabilities recorded in the balance sheet cannot be measured based on quoted prices in active markets, their fair value is measured using valuation techniques including the discounted cash flow model. The inputs to these models are taken from observable markets where possible, but where this is not feasible, a degree of judgment is required in establishing fair values. Judgments include considerations of inputs such as liquidity risk, credit risk and volatility. Changes in assumptions about these factors could affect the reported fair value of financial instruments. See Note 33 for further disclosures.

c) Defined benefit plan

The cost of the defined benefit gratuity plan, other retirement benefits, the present value of the gratuity obligation and other retirement benefit obligation are determined using actuarial valuations. An actuarial valuation involves making various assumptions that may differ from actual developments in the future. These include the determination of the discount rate, future salary increases and mortality rates. Due to the complexities involved in the valuation and its long-term nature, a defined benefit obligation is highly sensitive to changes in these assumptions. All assumptions are reviewed at each reporting date. The parameter most subject to change is the discount rate. In determining the appropriate discount rate, the management considers the interest rates of government bonds in currencies consistent with the currencies of the post-employment benefit obligation. The mortality rate is based on Indian Assured Lives Mortality (2006-08) Ultimate. Those mortality tables tend to change only at interval in response to demographic changes. Future salary increases and gratuity increases are based on expected future inflation rates. Further details about gratuity obligations are given in Note 37(H).

d) Fair Valuation of Investment Property

The Company obtains independent valuations for its investment properties at least annually. The Valuation is performed using Income approach-Rent capitalization method as per Ind AS 113- Fair value measurement

From January 1, 2015, the Company has adopted estimated useful life of fixed assets as stipulated by Schedule II to the Companies Act, 2013, applicable for accounting periods commencing 1st April 2014 or reassessed useful life based on technical evaluation. Accordingly out of 807.6 MINR, depreciation of 131.6 MINR (86.9 MINR net of deferred tax of 44.7 MINR) on account of assets whose useful life is already exhausted on 1st January, 2015 has been adjusted against retained earnings and in other cases, the carrying value has been depreciated over the remaining of the useful life of the assets and recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

The Company has only one class of equity shares having a par value of Rs. 10 per share. Each shareholder is entitled to one vote per share held. The dividend proposed by the Board of Directors is subject to the approval of the shareholders in the ensuing Annual General Meeting, except in case of interim dividend. In the event of liquidation of the Company, the equity shareholders are eligible to receive remaining assets of the Company, after distribution of all preferential amounts, in the proportion to their shareholding.

Buy Back of shares

The shareholders of the company have passed a special resolution on March 22, 2017 approving the buyback of equity shares of not more than 2.6 million fully paid up equity shares of Rs.10/- each representing 4.93% of the total number of Equity Shares in the paid-up share capital of the Company at a price of INR.1,500/-(Rupees one thousand five hundred) per Equity Share payable in cash for an aggregate consideration not exceeding MINR 3,900.

The Company has not allotted any bonus shares during 5 years immediately preceding March 31, 2017.

(i) Provision for disputed statutory and other matters: This represents provisions made for probable liabilities/ claims arising out of pending disputes/litigations with various regulatory authorities and those arising out of commercial transactions with vendors/others. Above provisions are affected by numerous uncertainties and management has taken all efforts to make a best estimate. Timing of outflow of resources will depend upon timing of decision of cases.

(ii) Provision for warranties: A provision is estimated for expected warranty claims in respect of products sold during the year on the basis of a technical evaluation and past experience regarding failure trends of products and costs of rectification or replacement. The timing and amount of cash flows that will arise from these matters will be determined at the time of receipt of claims.

(iii) The provision for other obligations is on account of coupons given on products sold by the Company and other retailers and distributors incentive schemes. The provision for coupons is based on the historical data/ estimated figures. The timing and amount of the cash flows that will arise will be determined at the time of receipt of claims from customers, which is generally up to 18 months.

The fair values of all financial instruments carried at amortized cost are not materially different from their carrying amounts since they are either short-term in nature or the interest rate applicable are equal to the current market rate of interest.

There are no financial instruments measured under the category of Fair value through Profit and Loss account and Fair value through OCI.

i) Fair value hierarchy

This section explains the judgments and estimates made in determining the fair values of the financial instruments that are measured at amortized cost and for which fair values are disclosed in the financial statements. To provide an indication about the reliability of the inputs used in determining fair value, the Company has classified its financial instruments into the three levels prescribed under the accounting standard. An explanation of each level are as follows:

Level 1 - Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2 - The fair value of financial instruments that are not traded in an active market is determined using valuation techniques which maximise the use of observable market data and rely as little as possible on entity-specific estimates. If all significant inputs required to fair value an instrument are observable, the instrument is included in level 2.

Level 3 - If one or more of the significant inputs is not based on observable market data, the instrument is included in level 3.

All the financial assets and liabilities as on March 31, 2016 and January 1, 2015 are categorized under Level 3. The carrying amounts of all these financial assets and liabilities as on the respective dates are equal to their fair values and so fair value hierarchy is not disclosed separately.

(ii) Valuation processes

The Company performs the valuations of financial assets and liabilities required for financial reporting purposes, including level 3 fair values.

4 FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT

In the course of its business, the Company is exposed primarily to market risk, liquidity risk and credit risk, which may impact the fair value of its financial instruments. The Company has a risk management policy which not only covers the foreign exchange risks but also other risks associated with the financial assets and liabilities such as credit risks. The risk management policy is approved by the board of directors.

The Risk Management framework aims to create a stable business planning environment by reducing the impact of market related risks, credit risks & currency fluctuations on the Company''s earnings.

5 (A) MARKET RISK

Market risk is the risk of any loss in future earnings, in realizable fair values or in future cash flows that may result from a change in the price of a financial instrument. The value of a financial instrument may change as a result of changes in the, foreign currency exchange rates, liquidity and other market changes. Future specific market movements cannot be normally predicted with reasonable accuracy.

i) Foreign currency risk

The Company transacts internationally and is exposed to foreign exchange risk arising from foreign currency transactions, primarily with respect to the USD, EUR and SEK. Foreign exchange risk arises from future commercial transactions and recognized assets and liabilities denominated in a currency that is not the company''s functional currency (INR).

The Company has both Import and Export transactions in Foreign currency. The Imports are higher than the exports and hence the Company has foreign currency exposure to the extent of purchases being higher than exports, but any material variation in currency is recovered from the customers, through ongoing negotiation process . Thus the risk for currency fluctuation is mitigated .

iii) Interest rate risk

The Company''s borrowings are carried at amortized cost. The Company recovers interest charged by bank for discounted Bill of exchange from the customers who accept these bills of exchange. They are therefore not subject to interest rate risk as defined in Ind AS 107, since neither the carrying amount nor the future cash flows will fluctuate because of a change in market interest rates.

The loan to related party is carried at amortized cost. The Company recovers interest as per the terms of the agreement. The interest rate approximates the market rate of interest and hence the interest risk for loan given to related party is not considered to be substantial.

6 (B) LIQUIDITY RISK

Prudent liquidity risk management implies maintaining sufficient cash and marketable securities and the availability of funding through an adequate amount of committed credit facilities to meet obligations when due and to pay out obligations. Due to the dynamic nature of the underlying businesses, Company ensures availability of funds by managing the investments.

Management monitors rolling forecasts of the Company''s liquidity position and cash and cash equivalents on the basis of expected cash flows. The Company''s liquidity management policy involves projecting cash flows and considering the level of liquid assets necessary to meet this. The Company invests its surplus funds in bank fixed deposit and in quoted government debt securities.

Maturities of financial liabilities

All the financial liabilities as on March 31, 2017, March 31, 2016 and January 1, 2015 are due within 12 months. The carrying value of all the financial liabilities as on respective dates is considered as its maturity value since the impact of discounting is not significant.

6 (C) CREDIT RISK

Credit risk is the risk of financial loss arising from counterparty failure to repay or service debt according to the contractual terms or obligations. Credit risk encompasses both the direct risk of default and the risk of deterioration of creditworthiness.

Credit risk management

For banks and financial institutions, only high rated banks/institutions are accepted.

The Company considers the probability of default upon initial recognition of asset and whether there has been a significant increase in credit risk on an ongoing basis throughout each reporting period. To assess whether there is a significant increase in credit risk the Company compares the risk of a default occurring on the asset as at the reporting date with the risk of default as at the date of initial recognition. It considers available reasonable and supportive forwarding-looking information. Especially the following indicators are incorporated:

- actual or expected significant adverse changes in business, financial or economic conditions that are expected to cause a significant change to the counterparty ability to meet its obligations

- actual or expected significant changes in the operating results of the counterparty

- significant increase in credit risk on other financial instruments of the same counterparty

- significant changes in the value of the collateral supporting the obligation or in the quality of third-party guarantees or credit enhancements

The definition of default is determined by considering the business environment in which entity operates and other macro-economic factors. All receivables past due are analyzed and based on scrutiny provisions for Bad Debts are made on specific identification basis.

Exposure to credit risk

The carrying amount of financial assets represents the maximum credit exposure. The maximum exposure to credit risk , being the total of the carrying amount of balances with bank, short term deposits with banks, trade receivables and other financial assets is disclosed at the end of the each reporting period. Refer relevant notes for details.

Financial assets that are neither past due nor impaired

None of the Company''s cash equivalents, including time deposits with banks, are past due or impaired. Regarding trade receivables and other receivables, and other financial assets that are neither impaired nor past due, there were no indications at the end of each reporting period, that defaults in payment obligations will occur.

The Company follows 12 months expected credit losses (expected credit losses that result from those default events on the financial instrument that are possible within 12 months after the reporting date) model for recognition of impairment loss on financial assets measured at amortized cost other than trade receivables. The Company follows lifetime expected credit loss model (simplified approach) for recognition of impairment loss on trade receivables.

The ageing of trade receivable as on balance sheet date is given below. The age analysis has been considered from the date when the invoices were due for payment.

7 CAPITAL MANAGEMENT (a) Risk management

The company''s objectives when managing capital are to

- Safeguard their ability to continue as a going concern, so that they can continue to provide returns for shareholders and benefits for other stakeholders, and

- Maintain an optimal capital structure to reduce the cost of capital.

In order to maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Company may adjust the amount of dividends paid to shareholders, return capital to shareholders, issue new shares or sell assets to reduce debt.

The Company determines the amount of capital required on the basis of annual operating plans and long-term product and other strategic investment plans. The funding requirements are met through equity and short-term borrowings. The company''s short term borrowings are only to the extent of discounted bills of exchange.

In addition to the above dividend, in point (1) above, post year end the directors have recommended the payment of a final dividend of INR 10/- per fully paid equity share (March 31, 2016 - INR 15). This proposed dividend is subject to the approval of shareholders in the Annual General meeting.

* The above amount of Dividend of Rs 527.3 MINR is subject to a change depending on the Outstanding number of shares on the record date of the payment of dividend since the Company is in the process of a Share Buy Back Program.

* The Earnings per Share for 15 months ended March 31, 2016 are not annualized and hence not comparable.

8 EMPLOYEE BENEFITS: POST-EMPLOYMENT BENEFIT PLANS

I Defined contribution plans

The Company makes contributions, determined as a specified percentage of employee salaries, in respect of qualifying employees towards Provident Fund, which is a defined contribution plan. The Company has no obligations other than to make the specified contributions in case of employees not covered under SKF Bearings India Limited, Provident Fund Scheme. The contributions are charged to the profit and loss as they accrue. The amount recognized as an expense towards contribution to Provident Fund and Superannuation fund is as follows:

II Defined Benefit plans

i) Gratuity

The Company operates a post-employment defined benefit plan that provides gratuity. The gratuity plan entitles an employee, who has rendered at least five years of continuous service, to receive between 15 days to one month''s salary for each year of completed service at the time of retirement/exit.

The following table summarizes the position of assets and obligations.

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 in the employment market.

Assumptions regarding future mortality are set based on actuarial advice in accordance with published statistics and experience in each territory. These assumptions translate into an average life expectancy in years for a pensioner .

ii) Provident Fund

The Company has an obligation to fund any shortfall on the yield of the trust''s investments over the administered interest rates on an annual basis. These administered rates are determined annually predominantly considering the social rather than economic factors. The actuary has provided a valuation and based on the below provided assumptions, shortfall recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss during the year is Rs NIL (previous year 7.7 MINR).

The above sensitivity analyses are based on a change in an assumption while holding all other assumptions constant. In practice, this is unlikely to occur, and changes in some of the assumptions may be correlated. When calculating the sensitivity of the defined benefit obligation to significant actuarial assumptions the same method (present value of the defined benefit obligation calculated with the projected unit credit method at the end of the reporting period) has been applied as when calculating the defined benefit liability recognized in the balance sheet.

The methods and types of assumptions used in preparing the sensitivity analysis did not change compared to the prior period.

V Risk exposure

Through its defined benefit plans, the company is exposed to a number of risks, the most significant of which are detailed below:

Asset volatility The plan liabilities are calculated using a discount rate set with reference to bond yields; if plan assets underperform this yield, this will create a deficit. Most of the plan asset investments is in fixed income securities with high grades and in government securities. These are subject to interest rate risk and the fund manages interest rate risk to minimize risk to an acceptable level. A portion of the funds are invested in equity securities and in alternative investments which have low correlation with equity securities. The equity securities are expected to earn a return in excess of the discount rate and contribute to the plan deficit. The company has a risk management strategy where the aggregate amount of risk exposure on a portfolio level is maintained at a fixed range. Any deviations from the range are corrected by rebalancing the portfolio. The company intends to maintain the above investment mix in the continuing years.

Changes in bond yields A decrease in bond yields will increase plan liabilities, although this will be partially offset by an increase in the value of the plans'' bond holdings.

The company ensures that the investment positions are managed within an asset-liability matching (ALM) framework that has been developed to achieve long- term investments that are in line with the obligations under the employee benefit plans.

Within this framework, the company''s ALM objective is to match assets to the gratuity obligations by investing in long-term fixed interest securities with maturities that match the benefit payments as they fall due.

The company actively monitors how the duration and the expected yield of the investments are matching the expected cash outflows arising from the employee benefit obligations. The company has not changed the processes used to manage its risks from previous periods.

Investments are well diversified, such that the failure of any single investment would not have a material impact on the overall level of assets.

In addition to above, during the year the company has received a Draft assessment order for financial year 2012-13 (Assessment year 2013-14) u/s 143(3) read with section 144C of the Income Tax Act, 1961 (“Act”) from the Assessing officer proposing an adjustment of Rs. 656 million towards Transfer Pricing addition resulting from the Transfer Pricing order under section 92CA of the Act and an adjustment of Rs. 162.5 million towards Income Tax issues. Thus the total addition of Rs. 818.5 million has been proposed in draft assessment order. Against this draft assessment order, the company has filed its objections with Dispute resolution panel (DRP) under section 144C of the Act. The matter will be heard by the DRP and directions shall be issued to the Assessing officer who shall, in conformity with the directions, pass the final assessment order under section 144C(13) of the Act. Given the fact that the company has not received final assessment order and that the hearings are pending before the Dispute resolution panel, the management is of the opinion that there is no tax liability against the company as on the balance sheet date.

FIRST TIME ADOPTION OF IND AS 40 TRANSITION TO IND AS

These are the company''s first financial statements prepared in accordance with Ind AS.

The accounting policies set out in note 1 have been applied in preparing the financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2017 the comparative information presented in these financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2016 and in the preparation of an opening Ind AS balance sheet at January 1, 2015 (the Company''s date of transition). In preparing its opening Ind AS balance sheet, the Company has adjusted the amounts reported previously in financial statements prepared in accordance with the accounting standards notified under Companies (Accounting Standards) Rules, 2006 (as amended) and other relevant provisions of the Act (previous GAAP or Indian GAAP). An explanation of how the transition from previous GAAP to Ind AS has affected the company''s financial position, financial performance and cash flows is set out in the following tables and notes.

9 (A) Exemptions and exceptions availed

Set out below are the applicable Ind AS 101 optional exemptions and mandatory exceptions applied in the transition from previous GAAP to Ind AS.

Ind AS optional exemptions

Deemed cost

Ind AS 101 permits a first-time adopter to elect to continue with the carrying value for all of its property, plant and equipment as recognized in the financial statements as at the date of transition to Ind AS, measured as per the previous GAAP and use that as its deemed cost as at the date of transition after making necessary adjustments for de-commissioning liabilities. This exemption can also be used for intangible assets covered by Ind AS 38 Intangible Assets and investment property covered by Ind AS 40 Investment Properties. Accordingly, the company has elected to measure all of its property, plant and equipment, intangible assets and investment property at their previous GAAP carrying value.

Ind AS mandatory exceptions

Estimates

An entity''s estimates in accordance with Ind AS at the date of transition to Ind AS shall be consistent with estimates made for the same date in accordance with previous GAAP (after adjustments to reflect any difference in accounting policies), unless there is objective evidence that those estimates were in error.

Ind AS estimates as at 1 January 2015 are consistent with the estimates as at the same date made in conformity with previous GAAP. De-recognition of financial assets and liabilities

Ind AS 101 requires a first-time adopter to apply the de-recognition provisions of Ind AS 109 prospectively for transactions occurring on or after the date of transition to Ind AS. However, Ind AS 101 allows a first-time adopter to apply the de-recognition requirements in Ind AS 109 retrospectively from a date of the entity''s choosing, provided that the information needed to apply Ind AS 109 to financial assets and financial liabilities derecognized as a result of past transactions was obtained at the time of initially accounting for those transactions. The company has elected to apply the de-recognition provisions of Ind AS 109 retrospectively after the date of transition to Ind AS

10 (B) Reconciliations between previous GAAP and Ind AS

Ind AS 101 requires an entity to reconcile equity, total comprehensive income and cash flows for prior periods. The following tables represent the reconciliations from previous GAAP to Ind AS.

Reconciliations:

The following reconciliations provides the effect of transition to Ind AS from previous GAAP in accordance with Ind AS 101

1. Equity as at January 01, 2015 and March 31, 2016

2. Net profit for the 15 months ended March 31, 2016

3. Reconciliation of total equity as at January 1, 2015 & March 31, 2016

4. Reconciliation of total comprehensive income.

5. Reconciliation of statement of cash flows as on March 31, 2016.

A PROPOSED DIVIDEND

Under the previous GAAP, dividends proposed by the board of directors after the balance sheet date but before the approval of the financial statements were considered as adjusting events. Accordingly, provision for proposed dividend was recognized as a liability. Under Ind AS, such dividends are recognized when the same is approved by the shareholders in the general meeting. Accordingly, the liability for proposed dividend & tax thereon of MINR 952 as at 31 March 2016 (1 January 2015 - MINR 158.7) included under provisions has been reversed with corresponding adjustment to retained earnings. Consequently, the total equity increased by an equivalent amount.

B EXCISE DUTY

Under the previous GAAP, revenue from sale of products was presented exclusive of excise duty. Under Ind AS, revenue from sale of goods is presented inclusive of excise duty. The excise duty paid is presented on the face of the statement of profit and loss as part of expenses. This change has resulted in an increase in total revenue and total expenses for the 15 months ended 31 March 2016 by MINR 2,292.1. There is no impact on the total equity and profit.

C REMEASUREMENTS OF POST-EMPLOYMENT BENEFIT OBLIGATIONS

Under Ind AS, remeasurements i.e. actuarial gains and losses and the return on plan assets, excluding amounts included in the net interest expense on the net defined benefit liability are recognized in other comprehensive income instead of profit or loss. Under the previous GAAP, these remeasurements were forming part of the profit or loss for the year. As a result of this change, the profit for the year ended March 31, 2016 decreased by INR 12.6 million. There is no impact on the total equity as at 31 March 2016.

D RECOGNITION OF TRADE RECEIVABLE AND ASSOCIATED BORROWINGS

As per Ind As 101, derecognition requirements in Ind AS 109 should apply prospectively to the transactions occurring on or after the date of transition. As per Ind AS 109, an entity shall remove a financial liability (or a part of a financial liability) from its balance sheet when, and only when, it is extinguished i.e. when the obligation specified in the contract is discharged or cancelled or expires. Management has recognized trade receivable relating to bill discounting arrangement with customer and recognized corresponding financial liability as on March 31, 2016 MINR 650.

E OTHER COMPREHENSIVE INCOME

Under Ind AS, all items of income and expense recognized in a period should be included in profit or loss for the period, unless a standard requires or permits otherwise. Items of income and expense that are not recognized in profit or loss but are shown in the statement of profit and loss as ‘other comprehensive income'' includes remeasurements of defined benefit plans. The concept of other comprehensive income did not exist under previous GAAP.

* For the purposes of this clause, the term ‘Specified Bank Notes'' shall have the same meaning provided in the notification of the Government of India, in the Ministry of Finance, Department of Economic Affairs number S.O. 3407(E), dated November 18, 2016.

11 THE COMPANY HAS FACILITY FROM BANKS FOR WORKING CAPITAL / WORKING CAPITAL DEMAND LOANS WHICH ARE SECURED BY PARI PASSU CHARGE OF :

The gratuity plan entitles an employee, who has rendered atleast five years of continuous service, to receive between 15 days to one month''s salary for each year of completed service at the time of retirement/exit.

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 in the employment market.

Assumptions regarding future mortality are based on published statistics and mortality tables. The calculation of the defined benefit obligation is sensitive to the mortality assumptions.

The overall expected long-term rate of return on assets is 8.5%. The expected long-term rate of return is based on the portfolio as a whole and not on the sum of the returns on individual asset categories. The return is based exclusively on historical returns, without adjustments.

(2) Provident Fund

The Company has an obligation to fund any shortfall on the yield of the trust''s investments over the administered interest rates on an annual basis. These administered rates are determined annually predominantly considering the social rather than economic factors. The actuary has provided a valuation and based on the below provided assumptions, shortfall recognised in the Statement of Profit and Loss during the year is Nil (previous year Rs. 4.3 million).
