Accounting Policies of Supreme Petrochem Ltd. Company

Mar 31, 2017

1. Property Plant and Equipment:

The Company has availed the exemption available under Ind AS 101 to continue the carrying value for all of its property, plant and equipment and intangibles as recognized in the financial statements as at the date of transition to Ind AS, measured as per the IGAAP and use that as its deemed cost as at the date of transition (1 July 2015).

Spares which meet the definition criteria of property plant and equipment , amounting to RS,127.55 Lakhs (Gross value) were capitalized from inventory. After providing depreciation of RS,7.43 Lakhs, the property plant and equipment increased by RS,120.12 Lakhs as of March 31, 2016.

2. Expected Credit Loss:

Under Indian GAAP no provision for doubtful debt was made. Under Ind AS, impairment allowance has been determined based on expected credit loss (ECL) model. Due to this model, the Company impaired its trade receivables by RS, 29.34 Lakhs as on the transition date which has been recognized in retained earnings. The impairment of RS,14.06 Lakhs for the period ended March 31, 2016 has been recognized in the Trade Receivable and RS, 15.28 Lakhs net of tax in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

3. Defined Benefit Obligations:

The actuarial gains and losses, the effect of the asset ceiling, excluding amounts included in net interest on the net defined benefit liability and the return on plan assets excluding amounts included in the net interest on the net defined benefit liability are recognized in balance sheet through other comprehensive income. Thus employee benefit expenses are reduced by RS, 99.38 Lakhs and recognized in other comprehensive income gross of tax for the year ended March 31, 2016.

4. Forward Contracts

Under IGAAP, the difference between and spot rate and forward rate is amortized over the tenure of the forward contract and premium paid on options were expensed out. Under Ind AS, forward/option contract is required to be accounted at fair value. Accordingly, the company has provided for gain of RS, 6.94 Lakhs in the retained earnings on the transition date July 1, 2015 and a gain of RS, 0.86 Lakhs for the period ended March 31, 2016.

5. Sale of goods

Under IGAAP, excise duty was reduced from Gross Sales. Under Ind AS, excise duty is not reduced from Gross but shown as an expense in the notes. Sale of goods has increased by RS, 28519.53 Lakhs with a corresponding increase in expense for the period ended March 31, 2016.

6. Loan to Employees

The Company has given interest free loans to its employees. Under IGAAP this loan was accounted at principal value.

As per Ind AS employee loans should be measured at fair value on initial recognition with a subsequent decrease in the amount of employee loan. The fair value is determined using the present value method using discount rate which is the market borrowing rate. The Company is required to accrue interest income at the effective interest rate (discount rate) over the term of the loan. The difference between the loan amount and its fair value is charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss as “Employee Cost”. This results in the decrease in the carrying amount of the loan by RS, 23.14 Lakhs on the transition date July 1, 2015 and adjusted in total equity.

7. Dealer/Distributor Deposits

The Company has received security deposits from its Dealers and Distributors under the Dealership Agreement at rates below the prevailing market rates. Under the Indian GAAP these Security Deposits were shown under long term liability. Under the Ind AS, these deposits have been revalued at fair value using the present value method using a discount rate which is market borrowing rate. An amount of RS, 0.28 lakhs was reduced from Deposit amount and charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss during the year ended March 31, 2017.

8. Prior Period Adjustment

An amount of RS, 15.84 Lakhs shown under prior period adjustment under Indain GAAP is added to Profit after Tax as on March 31, 2016,under Ind AS it was charged to retained earnings as on July 1, 2015.

9. Security Deposit Paid

Under IGAAP, interest free lease security deposits (that are refundable in cash on completion of the lease term) are recorded at their transaction alue. Under Ind AS, all financial assets are required to be recognized at fair value. Accordingly the Company has fair valued these security deposits under Ind AS. Difference between the fair value and the transaction value of the security deposit has been recognized as prepaid rent. Consequent to this change, the security deposit increased by RS, 0.28 Lakhs as at July 01, 2015 and reversed by same amount as on March 31, 2016.

10. Dividend

As per Ind AS dividend is recognized only when it is approved by the shareholders and hence dividend provision of V 1,447.53 Lakhs together with tax on dividend of RS, 294.68 Lakhs (Total of RS, 1,742.21 Lakhs) proposed for the year ended June 30, 2015 was reduced from provisions and from total equity in the opening balance sheet as on July 1, 2015.

11. Other Comprehensive Income

Under previous GAAP, the Company has not presented Other Comprehensive Income(OCI) separately. Hence, the Statement of Profit and Loss under previous GAAP has been reconciled with statement of profit and loss and other comprehensive income as per Ind AS.

Actuarial loss of RS, 99.38 Lakhs on defined benefit plans for the employees and RS,34.39 Lakhs deferred tax credit on the same as per Ind AS has been reclassified to Other Comprehensive Income from Statement of Profit and loss.

12. Deferred Tax

Indian GAAP requires deferred tax accounting using the income statement approach, which focuses on differences between taxable profits and accounting profits for the period. Ind AS 12 requires entities to account for deferred taxes using the balance sheet approach, which focuses on temporary differences between the carrying amount of an asset or liability in the balance sheet and its tax base. The application of Ind AS 12 approach has resulted in recognition of deferred tax on new temporary differences which was not required under Indian GAAP. This has resulted in deferred tax asset by RS, 4.79 Lakhs.

Classification of Assets and Liabilities into current and Non-Current

The Company presents its assets and liabilities in the Balance Sheet based on current / non-current classification.

An asset is treated as current when it is:

a) expected to be realized or intended to be sold or consumed in normal operating cycle;

b) held primarily for the purpose of trading;

c) expected to be realized within twelve months after the reporting period; or

d) cash or cash equivalent unless restricted from being exchanged or used to settle a liability for at least twelve months after the reporting period.

All other assets are classified as non-current.

A liability is treated as current when :

a) it is expected to be settled in normal operating cycle;

b) it is held primarily for the purpose of trading;

c) it is due to be settled within twelve months after the reporting period; or

d) there is no unconditional right to defer the settlement of the liability for at least twelve months after the reporting period. All other liabilities are classified as non-current.

Based on the nature of products and the time between the acquisition of assets for processing and their realization in cash and cash equivalents, the Company has ascertained its operating cycle being a period within twelve months for the purpose of current and non-current classification of assets and liabilities.

1.3 Use of judgments, estimates and assumptions

The preparation of the Company''s financial statements required management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities, and the accompanying disclosures, and the disclosures of contingent liabilities. Uncertainty about these assumptions and estimates could result in outcomes that require a material adjustment in the future periods in the carrying amount of assets or liabilities affected.

The Company''s accounting policies, management has made judgments in respect of evaluation of recoverability of deferred tax assets, which has the most significant effect on the amounts recognized in the financial statements:

The following are the key assumptions concerning the future, and other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the end of the reporting period that may have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within;

a) Useful life of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets: The Company has estimated useful life of the Property Plant and Equipment as specified in Schedule II to the Companies Act, 2013. However the actual useful life for individual equipments could turn out to be different, there could be technology changes, breakdown, unexpected failure leading to impairment or complete discard. Alternately the equipment may continue to provide useful service well beyond the useful life assumed.

b) Fair value measurement of financial instruments : When the fair values of financial assets and financial liabilities cannot be measured based on quoted process in active market, the fair value is measured using valuation techniques including the discounted cash flow (DCF) model. The inputs to these models are taken from observable markets where possible, but where this is not possible, a degree of judgment is required in establishing fair values.

c) Impairment of financial and non-financial assets: The impairment provisions for financial assets are based on assumptions about risk of default and expected loss rates. The Company uses judgment in making these assumptions and selecting the input for the impairment calculations, based on Company''s past history, existing market conditions, technology, economic developments as well as forward looking estimates at the end of each reporting period.

d) Taxes: Taxes have been paid / provided, exemptions availed, allowances considered etc. are based on the extant laws and the Company''s interpretation of the same based on the legal advice received wherever required. These could differ in the view taken by the authorities, clarifications issued subsequently by the government and courts, amendments to statutes by the government etc.

e) Defined benefit plans: The cost of defined benefit plans and other post -employment benefits plans and the present value of such obligations are determined using actuarial valuations. An actuarial valuation involves making various assumptions that may differ from actual developments in the future.

f) Provisions: The Company makes provisions for leave encashment and gratuity, based on report received from the independent actuary. These valuation reports use complex valuation models using not only the inputs provided by the Company but also various other economic variables. Considerable judgment is involved in the process.

g) Contingencies: A provision is recognized when an enterprise has a present obligation as a result of past event and it is probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation in respect of which a reliable estimate can be made. Provisions are measured at the present value of management''s best estimate of the expenditure required to settle the present obligations at the end of the reporting period. However the actual liability could be considerably different.

1.4 Property, Plant and Equipment

Freehold land is carried at historical cost. All other property, plant and equipment are stated at cost, net of recoverable taxes, trade discounts and rebates less accumulated depreciation and impairment loss, if any. The cost of tangible assets comprises its purchase price, borrowing cost, any costs directly attributable to bringing the asset into the location and condition necessary for it to be capable of operating in the manner intended by management, initial estimation of any decommissioning obligations and finance cost.

When significant parts of the Property, Plant and Equipment are required to be replaced at intervals, the Company derecognizes the replaced part, and recognizes the new part with its own associated useful life and depreciated accordingly. Likewise when a major inspection is performed, its cost is recognized in the carrying amount of the plant and equipment as a replacement if the recognition criteria are satisfied. All other repair and maintenance costs are recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss as incurred.

Cost of Software directly identified with hardware is recognized along with the cost of hardware.

Stores and spares which meet the definition of Property, Plant and Equipment and satisfy recognition criteria of Ind AS 16 are capitalized as Property, Plant and Equipment.

An item of Property, Plant and Equipment and any significant part initially recognized is derecognized upon disposal or when no future economic benefits are expected from its use. Any gain or loss arising on derecognition of the asset is included in the Statement of Profit and Loss when the asset is derecognized.

Capital work-in-progress includes cost of Property, Plant and Equipment which are not ready for their intended use.

The residual values and useful lives of Property, Plant and Equipment are reviewed at each financial year end, and changes, if any, are accounted prospectively.

Depreciation on the property, plant and equipment is provided over the useful life of assets as specified in Schedule II to the Companies Act, 2013 using straight line method. Property, Plant and Equipment which are added / disposed off during the year, depreciation is provided on pro rata basis with reference to the month of addition / deletion.

In line with the provisions of Schedule II of the Companies Act 2013, the Company depreciates significant components of the main asset (which have different useful lives as compared to the main asset) based on the individual useful life of those components. Useful life for such components has been assessed based on the historical experience and internal technical inputs.

1.5 Intangible Assets

Intangible Assets are recognized only if they are separately identifiable and the Company expects to receive future economic benefits arising out of them. Intangible Assets are stated at cost of acquisition net of recoverable taxes less accumulated amortization/ depletion and impairment loss, if any. The cost comprises purchase price, borrowing costs, and any cost directly attributable to bringing the asset to its working condition for the intended use.

Computer Software is amortized over a period of six years.

Intangible assets with finite lives are amortized on straight line basis over their useful economic life and assessed for impairment whenever there is an indication that the intangible asset may be impaired. The amortization period and the amortization method for an intangible asset with a finite useful life are reviewed at each year end. The amortized expense on intangible assets with finite lives and impairment loss is recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

The useful lives of intangible assets are assessed as either finite or indefinite.

Gains or losses arising from derecognition of an intangible asset are recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss when the asset is derecognized.

Intangible assets with indefinite useful lives, are not amortized, but are tested for impairment annually. The assessment of indefinite life is reviewed annually to determine whether the indefinite life continues to be supportable. If not, the change in useful life from indefinite to finite is made on a prospective basis. The impairment loss on intangible assets with indefinite life is recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

1.6 Impairment of non - financial assets

At each Balance Sheet date, the Company assesses whether there is an indication that an asset may be impaired and also whether there is an indication of reversal of impairment loss recognized in the previous periods. If any indication exists, or when annual impairment testing for an asset is required, the Company determines the recoverable amount and impairment loss is recognized when the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its recoverable amount.

An asset''s recoverable amount is the higher of an asset''s or cash-generating unit''s (CGU) fair value less costs of disposal and its value in use. Recoverable amount is determined for an individual asset, unless the asset does not generate cash inflows that are largely independent of those from other assets or groups of assets.

When the carrying amount of an asset or CGU exceeds its recoverable amount, the asset is considered impaired and is written down to its recoverable amount.

In assessing the value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset. In determining fair value less costs of disposal, recent market transactions are taken into account. If no such transactions can be identified, an appropriate valuation model is used.

The Company bases its impairment calculation on detailed budgets and forecast calculations, which are prepared separately for the Company''s CGUs in the state of Tamilnadu and Maharashtra to which the individual assets are allocated.

1.7 Inventories

Inventories are valued as under

Raw materials, packing material, stores and spares are valued at lower of cost (on a weighted average basis) and net realizable value. However, materials and other items held for use in the production of inventories are not written down below cost if the finished products in which they will be incorporated are expected to be sold at or above manufacturing cost.

Stock in process is valued at lower of cost (on a weighted average basis) and net realizable value.

Finished goods (including in transit) are valued at cost (on a weighted average basis) or net realizable value whichever is lower. Cost for this purpose includes direct materials, direct labour utilities, other variable direct costs and manufacturing overheads, based on the normal operating capacity and depreciation.

1.8 Cash and cash Equivalents

Cash and cash equivalent in the Balance Sheet comprise cash at banks and on hand and short-term deposits with an original maturity of three months or less, which are subject to insignificant risk of changes in value.

For the purpose of statement of cash flows, cash and cash equivalents consist of cash and short-term deposits as defined above, net of outstanding bank overdrafts as they are considered as an integral part of the Company''s cash management.

Cash Flow Statement

Cash flows are reported using the indirect method, whereby profit for the period is adjusted for the effects of transactions of a non-cash nature, any deferrals or accruals of past or future operating cash receipts or payments and item of income or expenses associated with investing or financing cash flows . The cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities of the Company are segregated.

Bank Balances other than above

Dividend escrow account balances, deposits with banks as margin money for guarantees issued by the banks, deposits kept as security deposits for statutory authorities are accounted as bank balances other than Cash and Cash equivalents.

1.9 Non-current Assets Held for Sale

Non-current assets classified as held for sale are measured at the lower of carrying amount and fair value less costs to sell.

Non-current assets are classified as held for sale if their carrying amounts will be recovered through a sale transaction rather than through continuing use. This condition is regarded as met only when the sale is highly probable and the asset is available for immediate sale in its present condition subject only to terms that are usual and customary for sales of such assets

Property, plant and equipment and intangible assets are not depreciated or amortized once classified as held for sale.

1.10 Financial Instruments

A financial instrument is any contract that gives rise to a financial asset of one entity and a financial liability or equity instrument of another entity.

A. Financial Assets:

(i) Classification:

The Company classifies financial assets as subsequently measured at amortized cost, fair value through other comprehensive income, or fair value through profit and loss on the basis of its business model for managing the financial asset and the contractual cash flow characteristics of the financial asset.

(ii) Initial recognition and measurement

All financial assets are recognized initially at fair value plus, in the case of financial assets not recognized at fair value through profit and loss, transaction costs that are attributable to the acquisition of the financial asset.

(iii) Financial assets measured at amortized cost:

Financial assets are subsequently measured at amortized cost using effective interest rate method (EIR), if these financial assets are held within a business whose objective is to hold these assets in order to collect contractual cash flows and the contractual terms of the financial asset give rise on specified dates to cash flows that are solely payments of principal and interest on the principal outstanding. The losses arising from the impairment are recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

(iv) Financial assets at fair value through other comprehensive income

Financial assets are measured at fair value through other comprehensive income if these financial assets are held within a business whose objective is achieved by both collecting contractual cash flows and selling financial assets and the contractual terms give rise to cash flows that are solely payments of principal and interest on the principal outstanding.

(v) Financial assets measured at fair value through profit and loss

Financial assets under this category are measured initially as well as at each reporting date at fair value. Fair value movements are recognized in profit and loss.

(vi) Derecognition of financial assets

A financial asset is primarily derecognized when the rights to receive cash flows from the asset have expired or the Company has transferred its rights to receive cash flows from the asset.

AA. Impairment of Financial Assets

In accordance with Ind-AS 109, the Company applies Expected Credit Loss (ECL) model for measurement and recognition of impairment loss.

The Company follows ''simplified approach'' for recognition of impairment loss allowance on trade receivables. The application of simplified approach does not require the Company to track changes in credit risk. Rather, it recognizes impairment loss allowance based on lifetime ECLs at each reporting date, right from its initial recognition.

B. Financial Liabilities

(i) Classification

The Company classifies all financial liabilities as subsequently measured at amortized cost, except for financial liabilities at fair value through profit and loss. Such liabilities, including derivatives that are liabilities, shall be subsequently measured at fair value.

(ii) Initial recognition and measurement

All financial liabilities are recognized initially at fair value, in the case of loans, borrowings and payables, net of directly attributable transaction costs. Financial liabilities include trade and other payables, loans and borrowings including bank overdrafts and derivative financial instruments.

(iii) Subsequent measurement

All financial liabilities are re-measured at fair value through statement of profit and loss include financial liabilities held for trading and financial liabilities designated upon initial recognition as at fair value through statement of profit and loss. Financial liabilities are classified as held for trading if they are incurred for the purpose of repurchasing in the near term.

(iv) Loans and borrowings

Interest bearing loans and borrowings are subsequently measured at amortized cost using effective interest rate (EIR) method. Gains and losses are recognized in Statement of Profit and Loss when the liabilities are derecognized as well as through EIR amortization process. The EIR amortization is included as finance cost in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

(v) Derecognition of financial liabilities

A financial liability is derecognized when the obligation under the liability is discharged or canceled or expires. When an existing financial liability is replaced by another from the same lender on substantially different terms, or the terms of an existing liability are substantially modified, such an exchange or modification is treated as the derecognition of the original liability and the recognition of a new liability. The difference in the respective carrying amounts is recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

(vi) Derivative financial instruments

The Company uses derivative financial instruments such as forward currency contracts and options to hedge its foreign currency risks. Such derivative financial instruments are initially recognized at fair value on the date on which

a derivative contract is entered into and are subsequently re-measured at fair value. The gain or loss in the fair values is taken to Statement of Profit and Loss at the end of every period. Profit or loss on cancellations / renewals of forward contracts and options are recognized as income or expense during the period.

C. Offsetting of financial instruments

Financial assets and financial liabilities are offset and the net amount is reported in the Balance Sheet if there is a currently enforceable legal right to offset the recognized amounts and there is an intention to settle on a net basis to realize the assets and settle the liabilities simultaneously.

1.11 Fair value measurement

The Company measures certain financial assets and financial liabilities including derivatives and defined benefit plans at fair value.

Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The fair value measurement is based on the presumption that the transaction to sell the asset or transfer the liability takes place either:

- In the principal market for the asset or liability; or

- In the absence of a principal market, in the most advantageous market for the asset or liability

The fair value of an asset or a liability is measured using the assumptions that market participants would use when pricing the asset or liability, assuming that market participants act in their best economic interest.

All assets and liabilities for which fair value is measured or disclosed in the financial statements are categorized within the fair value hierarchy, described as follows, based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement as a whole:

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

Level 2 — Valuation techniques for which the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement is directly or indirectly observable.

Level 3 — Valuation techniques for which the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement is unobservable.

For assets and liabilities that are recognized in the financial statements on a recurring basis, the Company determines whether transfers have occurred between levels in the hierarchy by re-assessing categorization (based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement as a whole) at the end of each reporting period.

1.12 Borrowing cost

Borrowing costs directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or production of an asset are capitalized as part of the cost of the asset. All other borrowing costs are expensed in the period in which they occur.

Borrowing costs consist of interest and other costs that an entity incurs in connection with the borrowing of funds. Borrowing cost also includes exchange differences to the extent regarded as an adjustment to the borrowing costs.

1.13 Provisions, Contingent liabilities, Contingent Assets

A provision is recognized when an enterprise has a present obligation as a result of past event and it is probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation in respect of which a reliable estimate can be made. Provisions are measured at the present value of management''s best estimate of the expenditure required to settle the present obligations at the end of the reporting period. If the effect of the time value of money is material, provisions are discounted using a current pre-tax rate that reflects, when appropriate, the risks specific to the liability. When discounting is used, the changes in the provision due to the passage of time are recognized as a finance cost.

Contingent liabilities are disclosed in the case of :

- a present obligation arising from the past events, when it is not probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation;

- a present obligation arising from the past events, when no reliable estimate is possible;

- a possible obligation arising from past events, unless the probability of outflow of resources is remote.

Contingent assets are not recognized but disclosed in the financial statements when an inflow of economic benefit is probable.

1.14 Employee Benefits

A. Short Term Benefits

Short Term Benefits are recognized as an expense at the undiscounted amount in the Statement of Profit and Loss of the period in which the related service is rendered.

Payment to defined contribution retirement benefit plans are recognized as an expense when employees have rendered the services entitling them to the contribution.

B. Post Employment benefits - Defined Benefit Plans: Provident fund and Gratuity

The eligible employees of the Company are entitled to receive post employment benefits in respect of provident fund in which both the employees and the Company make monthly contributions at a specified percentage of the employees'' eligible salary. The contributions are made to the provident fund managed by the trust set up by the Company which is charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss as incurred. Since the Company is obligated to meet interest shortfall, if any, with respect to covered employees, such employee benefit plan is classified as defined benefit plan.

The Company has an obligation towards gratuity - a defined benefit retirement plan covering eligible employees. The plan provides a lump sum payment to vested employees at retirement, death while in employment or on termination of employment of an amount equivalent to 15 days salary payable for each completed year of service or part thereof in excess of six months. Vesting occurs upon completion of five years of service and is payable thereafter on occurrence of any of above events. The Company has obtained an insurance policy with the Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) and makes an annual contribution to LIC for amounts notified by LIC.

The cost of providing benefits under the defined benefit plan is determined using the projected unit credit method with actuarial valuations being carried out at each Balance Sheet date, which is recognized in each period of service as giving rise to additional unit of employee benefit entitlement and measures each unit separately to build up the final obligation.

Re-measurements, comprising of actuarial gains and losses, the effect of the asset ceiling, excluding amounts included in the net interest on the net defined liability and the return on plan assets (excluding amounts included in net interest on the net defined benefit liability), are recognized immediately in the Balance Sheet with a corresponding debit or credit to retained earnings through Other Comprehensive Income in the period in which they occur. Re-measurements are not reclassified to the Statement of Profit and Loss in subsequent periods. Past service cost is recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss in the period of plan amendment.

Net interest is calculated by applying the discount rate to the net defined benefit plan liability or asset.

The Company recognizes the following changes in the net defined benefit obligations under employee benefit expenses in the Statement of Profit and Loss:

- Service costs comprising of current service costs, past-service costs, gains and losses on curtailments and no routine settlements

- Net current expenses or income

C. Defined Contribution Plans - Superannuation

The eligible employees of the Company are entitled to receive post employment benefits of superannuation under Company''s Senior Officers Superannuation Scheme to which the Company makes annual contribution at a specified percentage of the employees'' salary subject to the contribution not exceeding V1,00,000/- p.a.. The contribution is made to the LIC. Superannuation is classified as defined contribution plan as the Company has no further obligations beyond making the contribution. The Company''s contribution is charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss as incurred.

D. Other Long-Term Employee Benefits - Compensated Absences

The Company provided for encashment of leave or leave with pay subject to certain rules. The employees are entitled to accumulate leave subject to certain limits for future encashment / a ailment. The Company makes provisions for compensated absences based on an independent actuarial valuation carried out at each reporting date, using Projected Unit Cost Method. Actuarial gains and losses are recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

1.15 Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue when the amount of revenue can be reliably measured and it is fairly certain that it will be realized.

Sale of Goods

Sales are accounted on passing of risks, rewards and control of ownership attached to the goods to external customers. Gross sales measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable include excise duty and are net of returns and discounts.

Dividend Income

Dividend income is recognized when the right to receive is established and there is a reasonable certainty of its collection. Export benefit

Benefits on account of entitlement to import duty-free raw materials under the Advance Authorization Scheme is measured at fair value and accounted for in the year of export and included under the head “Other Operating Income.”

Interest Income

Interest income is recognized using the effective interest rate method. The effective interest rate is the rate that exactly discounts estimated future cash receipts through the expected life of the financial asset to the gross carrying amount of a financial asset. When calculating the effective interest rate, the Company estimates the expected cash flows by considering all the contractual terms of the financial instruments (for example, prepayment, extension, call and similar options) but does not consider the expected credit loss.

Insurance Income

Income in respect of insurance claims recognized on acceptance basis or when there is reasonable certainty that the ultimate collection will be made.

Others

Income in respect of other claims and commissions are measured at fair value and recognized when there is reasonable certainty that the ultimate collection will be made.

1.16 Taxes on Income

Income Tax expenses comprise current tax expenses and the net change in the deferred tax asset or liabilities during the year. Current and Deferred tax are recognized in Statement of Profit and Loss, except when they relate to items that are recognized in Other Comprehensive Income or directly in equity, in which case, the current and deferred tax are also recognized in Other Comprehensive Income or directly in equity respectively.

Current Tax

The Company provides current tax based on the provisions of the Income Tax Act, 1961 applicable to the Company. Deferred Tax

Deferred tax is recognized using the Balance Sheet approach. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for deductible and taxable temporary differences arising between the tax base of assets and liabilities and their carrying amount.

Deferred tax liabilities are recognized for all taxable temporary differences.

Deferred tax assets are recognized for all deductible temporary differences, the carry forward of unused tax credits and any unused tax losses. Deferred tax assets are recognized to the extent that it is probable that taxable profit will be available against which the deductible temporary differences, and the carry forward of unused tax credits and unused tax losses can be utilized.

The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at each reporting date and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profit will be available to allow all or part of the deferred tax asset to be utilized. Unrecognized deferred tax assets are re-assessed at each reporting date and are recognized to the extent that it has become probable that future taxable profits will allow the deferred tax assets to be recovered.
