b) Use of estimates

The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported balances of assets and liabilities and disclosures relating to contingent assets and liabilities as at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of income and expenses during the period. Examples of such estimates include provisions for doubtful debts, future obligations under employee retirement benefit plans, income taxes, the useful lives and provision for impairment of fxed assets and intangible assets.

Management believes that the estimates used in the preparation of financial statements are prudent and reasonable. Future results could differ from these estimates.

Tangible assets are stated at cost of acquisition, less accumulated depreciation/amortisation and impairments, if any. Cost includes taxes, duties, freight and other incidental expenses related to acquisition.

Intangible assets are recognized only if it is probable that the future economic Benefits that are attributable to the assets will fow to the enterprise and the cost of the assets can be measured reliably. The intangible assets are recorded at cost and are carried at cost less accumulated amortization and accumulated impairment losses, if any.

d) Depreciation and amortisation

Depreciation on additions and disposals is provided pro-rata for the period of use.

Depreciation is provided on Straight Line Method, over the period of estimated useful life of the assets, as stipulated in Schedule II to the Companies Act 2013 with effect from 1st April 2014 or based on useful life wherever assessment is carried out by the management as per technical advice. The useful lives which are different from Schedule II are as follows :-

e) Impairment

At each Balance Sheet date, the Company assesses whether there is any indication that the fixed assets have suffered an impairment loss. If any such indication exists, the recoverable amount of the asset is estimated in order to determine the extent of the impairment, if any.

As per the assessment conducted by the Company at March 31, 2015, there were no indications that the fixed assets have suffered an impairment loss.

f) Investments

All other investments are classified as long term investments. Current investments are carried at cost or fair value, whichever is lower. Long-term investments are carried at cost. However, provision for diminution is made to recognise a decline, other than temporary, in the value of the investments, such reduction being determined and made for each investment individually.
