Change in Accounting Policy of Depreciation on Fixed Assets:

Consequent to the provisions of New Companies Act, 2013, there is change in accounting policy of Depreciation. As per Section 123 and Schedule II of Companies Act, 2013 depreciation is to be provided based on useful lives of assets as specified in the Schedule II. Accordingly, we have adopted the useful lives of fixed assets as prescribed in Schedule II to the Companies Act, 2013, for all the fixed assets, except, for continuous process plants (i.e. 18 years adopted as against 25 years prescribed) and Thermal Power Plant (i.e. 20 years adopted as against 40 years prescribed).
