The recoverable amount is the greater of the asset's net selling price and value in use which is determined based on the estimated future cash flow discounted to their present values. An impairment loss is recognized whenever the carrying amount of an asset or its cash generating unit exceeds its recoverable amount. Impairment loss is reversed if there has been a change in the estimates used to determine the recoverable amount.

13. Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets

The Company recognises provisions when there is present obligation as a result of past event and it is probable that there will be an outflow of resources and reliable estimate can be made of the amount of the obligation. A disclosure for Contingent liabilities is made in the notes on accounts when there is a possible obligation or present obligations that may, but probably will not, require an outflow of resources. Contingent assets are neither recognised nor disclosed in the financial statements.

The financial statements are presented in Indian rupees.

2 Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Indian GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent liabilities on the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period . Actual results could differ from those estimates. Any revision to accounting estimates is recognised prospectively in current and future periods. Examples of such estimates include provisions for doubtful debts, employee retirement benefit plans, provision for income taxes and the useful lives of fixed assets.

3 Fixed Assets and Deprecation

Fixed assets are stated at cost of acquisition or construction less accumulated depreciation. The cost of fixed assets comprises the purchase price (net of rebates and discounts) and any other directly attributable costs of bringing the assets to working condition for their intended use. Costs of construction are composed of those costs that relate directly to specific assets and those that are attributable to the construction activity in general and can be allocated to the specific assets up to the date when the asset is intended to use.

Depreciation on fixed assets is provided using the straight-line method as per the rates prescribed in Schedule XIV to the Companies Act, 1956. The rates of depreciation prescribed in Schedule XIV to the Companies Act, 1956 are considered as minimum rates. If the managements estimate of the useful life of a Fixed Asset at the time of acquisition of the Asset or of the remaining useful life on a subsequent review, is shorter than envisaged in the aforesaid schedule, depreciation is provided at a higher rate based on the managements estimate of the useful life / remaining useful life.

Depreciation is calculated on a pro-rata basis from/upto the date the assets are purchased /sold. Individual assets costing less than Rs. 5,000 are depreciated in full in the year of purchase.

4 Investments

Investments are classified as current or long-term in accordance with Accounting Standard 13 on "Accounting for Investments".

Current Investments are stated at lower of cost and market value. Any reduction in the carrying amount and any reversals of such reductions are charged or credited to the Profit and Loss Account.

Long term Investments are stated at cost comprising of acquisition and incidental expenses. Provision is made to recognize a diminution, other than temporary, in the value of such investments.

5 Revenue Recognition

Revenue is recognized when it is earned and to the extent that it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the company and the revenue can be reliably measured.

Revenue from sale of manufactured goods is recognized on delivery of the products, when all significant contractual obligations have been satisfied, the property in the goods is transferred for a price, significant risks and rewards of ownership are transferred to the customers and no effective ownership is retained and in respect of traded goods revenue is recognised upon issuance of tax invoice and transfer of risks and rewards.

Sales are net of sales returns and trade discounts. Export turnover includes related export benefits. Excise duty recovered is presented as a reduction from gross turnover.

6 Inventories

Raw materials and Work-in-progress are valued at cost using the weighted average cost method.

Finished goods produced and purchased by the company are valued at cost or net realisable value, whichever is lower.

Excise duty in respect of finished goods awaiting despatch is included in valuation of Inventories.

Stores and Spares are carried at cost, ascertained on a weighted average basis. Necessary provision is made in case of obsolete and non-moving items.

7 Employee Benefits

Short-term employee benefits (benefits which are payable within twelve months after the end of the period in which the employees render service) are measured at cost and are recognised as an expense at the undiscounted amount in the profit and loss account in the profit and loss account of the year in which the related service is rendered.

Contributions to Provident Fund, a defined contribution plan, are made in accordance with the statute and are recognized as an expense when employees have rendered service entitling them to the contributions.

Other long-term employee benefits (benefits which are payable after the end of twelve months from the end of the year in which the employees render service) are measured on a discounted basis by the Projected Unit Credit Method on the basis of actuarial valuation.

Actuarial gains and losses are recognized immediately in the Profit and Loss Account

Transactions in foreign currencies are recorded at the exchange rates prevailing on the dates of transactions and in case of purchase of materials and sale of goods, the exchange gains / losses on settlements during the year, are charged to Profit and Loss Account.

Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated at the rates prevailing on the date of Balance Sheet. Exchange gains / losses including those relating to fixed assets are dealt with in the Profit and Loss Account.

9 Borrowing Costs

Borrowing costs attributable to the acquisition or construction of qualifying assets, as defined in Accounting Standard 16 on "Borrowing Costs" are capitalized as part of the cost of such asset up to the date when the asset is ready for its intended use. Other borrowing costs are expensed as incurred.

10 Taxes on Income

Income taxes are accounted for in accordance with Accounting Standard 22 on "Accounting for Taxes on Income". Taxes comprise both current and deferred tax. Current tax is measured at the amount expected to be paid to the revenue authorities, using the applicable tax rates and laws.

Minimum alternate tax (MAT) paid in accordance with the tax laws, which gives rise to future economic benefits in the form of adjustment of future income tax liability, is considered as an asset if there is convincing evidence that the Company will pay normal tax after the tax holiday period. Accordingly, it is recognized as an asset in the balance sheet when it is probable that the future economic benefit associated with it will flow to the Company and the asset can be measured reliably.

The tax effect of the timing differences that result between taxable income and accounting income and are capable of reversal in one or more subsequent periods are recorded as a deferred tax asset or deferred tax liability.

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for future tax consequences attributable to timing differences. They are measured using the substantively enacted tax rates and tax regulations at the reporting date.

The carrying amount of deferred tax assets at each balance sheet date is reduced to the extent that it is no longer reasonably certain that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which the deferred tax asset can be realized.

Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) payable under the provisions of section 115WC of the Income Tax Act, 1961 is in accordance with the Guidance Note on "Accounting for Fringe Benefits Tax" issued by the ICAI regarded as an additional income tax and considered in determination of profits for the year.
