Note:-

There are no amounts due and outstanding to be credited to the Investor Education and Protection Fund as on 31st March 2017.

A. Basic earnings per share

The calculation of basic earnings per share has been based on the following profit attributable to ordinary shareholders and weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding.

(i) Defined Contribution Plans:

The Company makes contributions towards provident fund, superannuation fund and other retirement benefits to a defined contribution retirement benefit plan for qualifying employees. Under the plan, the Company is required to contribute a specified percentage of payroll cost to the retirement benefit plan to fund the benefits.

The Company recognized Rs. 1.58 crore (previous year Rs. 1.37 crore) for superannuation contribution and other retirement benefit contributions in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

The contributions payable to these plans by the Company are at rates specified in the rules of the schemes.

The Company recognized Rs. 3.58 crore (previous year Rs. 3.11 crore) for provident fund contributions in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

(ii) Defined Benefit Plan:

The Employees'' Gratuity Fund Scheme managed by a Trust is a defined benefit plan. The present value of obligation is determined based on actuarial valuation using the Projected Unit Credit Method, which recognizes 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. The obligation for leave encashment is recognized in the same manner as gratuity.

The most recent actuarial valuation of plan assets and the present value of the defined benefit obligation for gratuity were carried out as at March 31, 2017. The present value of the defined benefit obligations and the related current service cost and past service cost, were measured using the Projected Unit Credit Method.

Based on the actuarial valuation obtained in this respect, the following table sets out the status of the gratuity plan and the amounts recognized in the Company''s financial statements as at balance sheet date:

Sensitivity analysis is an analysis which will give the movement in liability if the assumptions were not proved to be true on different count. This only signifies the change in the liability if the difference between assumed and the actual is not following the parameters of the sensitivity analysis.

Based on the actuarial valuation obtained in this respect, the following table sets out the status of the gratuity plan and the amounts recognized in the Company’s financial statements as at balance sheet date:

Note MM Financial instruments - Fair values and risk management Liquidity Risk Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will encounter difficulty in meeting the obligations associated with its financial liabilities that are settled by delivering cash or another financial asset. The Company''s approach to managing liquidity is to ensure, as far as possible, that it will have sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities when they are due, under both normal and stressed conditions, without incurring unacceptable losses or risking damage to the Company''s reputation.

Maturity profile of financial liabilities

The following are the remaining contractual maturities of financial liabilities at the reporting date. The amounts are gross and undiscounted, and include estimated interest payments and exclude the impact of netting agreements.

Interest Rate Risk

Interest rate risk can be either fair value interest rate risk or cash flow interest rate risk. Fair value interest rate risk is the risk of changes in fair values of fixed interest bearing borrowings because of fluctuations in the interest rates. Cash flow interest rate risk is the risk that the future cash flows of floating interest bearing borrowings will fluctuate because of fluctuations in the interest rates.

In order to manage the risk of changing interest rates, the Company has entered into Interest Rate Swaps, whereby it switches its existing floating USD interest rate to USD fixed interest rates. This structure helps it hedge the risk of fluctuations in USD 6 month LIBOR on its USD Loan.

Interest rate sensitivity for fixed rate instruments

The Company does not account for any fixed-rate financial assets or financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss. Therefore, a change in interest rates at the reporting date would not affect profit or loss.

Cash flow sensitivity analysis for variable-rate instruments

A reasonably possible change of 100 basis points in interest rates at the reporting date would have increased (decreased) profit or loss by the amounts shown below. This analysis assumes that all other variables, in particular foreign currency exchange rates, remain constant.

Note HOT Financial instruments - Hedge accounting

The objective of hedge accounting is to represent, in the Company''s financial statements, the effect of the Company''s use of financial instruments to manage exposures arising from particular risks that could affect profit or loss or other comprehensive income.

Currency risk-

The Group''s risk management policy is to hedge its estimated foreign currency exposure in respect of highly forecasted purchase transaction. The Group uses forward exchange contracts to hedge its currency risk. Such contracts are generally designated as cash flow hedges. Group''s policy is to match the critical terms of the forward exchange contracts with that of the hedged item.

Commodity risk

The Group''s risk management policy is mitigate the impact of fluctuations in the aluminum/copper prices on highly forecast purchase transactions. The Group uses futures contract to hedge its commodity risk. Such contracts are generally designated as cash flow hedges. Interest rate

The Group''s risk management policy is to mitigate its interest rate risk exposure on floating rate borrowings by entering into fixed-rate instruments like interest rate swaps to eliminate the variability of cash flows attributable to movements in interest rates. Such hedges are designated as cash flow hedges.

Qualifying criteria

For derivative contracts designated as hedge, the Company documents at inception the economic relationship between the hedging instrument and the hedged item, the hedge ratio, the risk management objective for undertaking the hedge and the methods used to assess the hedge effectiveness. The hedging book consists of transactions to hedge Balance Sheet assets or liabilities. The tenor of hedging instrument may be less than or equal to the tenor of underlying hedged asset or liability.

Financial contracts designated as hedges are accounted for in accordance with the requirements of Ind AS 109 depending upon the type of hedge.

Hedge effectiveness is ascertained at the time of inception of the hedge and periodically thereafter. The Company assesses hedge effectiveness both on prospective and retrospective basis. The prospective hedge effectiveness test is a forward looking evaluation of whether or not the changes in the fair value or cash flows of the hedging position are expected to be highly effective on offsetting the changes in the fair value or cash flows of the hedged position over the term of the relationship.

On the other hand, the retrospective hedge effectiveness test is a backward-looking evaluation of whether the changes in the fair value or cash flows of the hedging position have been highly effective in offsetting changes in the fair value or cash flows of the hedged position since the date of designation of the hedge.

Note Hn Capital Management

For the purpose of the Company''s capital management, capital includes issued capital and other equity reserves . The primary objective of the Company''s Capital Management is to maximize shareholders value. The Company manages its capital structure and makes adjustments in the light of changes in economic environment and the requirements of the financial covenants.

Company enters into derivative transactions under International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) master netting agreement. In general, under such agreements the amounts owed by each counterparty on a single day in respect of all transactions outstanding in same currency are aggregated into a single net amount that is payable by one party to other.

In certain circumstances e.g. when a credit event such as default occurs-all outstanding transactions under the agreement are terminated, the termination value is assessed and only a net amount is payable in the settlement of all transactions.

The ISDA master netting agreement do not meet the criteria for offsetting in the balance sheet. This is because the Company does not have currently legally enforceable right to offset recognized amounts, because the right to offset is enforceable only on default.

Consequently, in preparing these Ind AS financial statements, the Company has availed certain exemptions and complied with the mandatory exceptions provided in Ind AS 101, as explained below. The resulting difference in the carrying values of the assets and liabilities as the transition date between the Ind AS and previous GAAP have been recognized directly in equity (retained earnings or another appropriate category of equity).

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

B.1 Ind AS mandatory exceptions B.1.1 Estimates

On transition, we did not revise estimates previously made under IGAAP except where required by Ind AS.

Notes

a Treasury Shares :-

Under Indian GAAP, Treasury Shares were shown as receivable under other current asset. However as per para 33 of Ind AS 32, Financial Instruments: Presentation, If an entity reacquires its own equity instruments, those instruments (treasury shares'') shall be deducted from equity. b Proposed dividend :-

Under Indian GAAP, proposed dividends are recognized as a liability in the period to which they relate, irrespective of when they are declared. Under Ind-AS, a proposed dividend is recognized as a liability in the period in which it is declared by the Company (usually when approved by shareholders in a general meeting) or paid. c Loan processing fees :

Under Indian GAAP, all costs which are directly attributable and incremental to the origination of borrowing required to be charged to Profit and Loss account. Under Ind AS, this costs required to be reduced from the borrowing at inception and recognize as finance cost in Statement of profit and loss subsequent to the date of transition over the tenure of borrowing. d Income tax impact of above adjustments:

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 the balance sheet approach has resulted in recognition of deferred tax on new temporary differences which was not required under Indian GAAP. e Revenue

Revenue from sale of goods has been recognized only when the risk, rewards and control in the goods passes to the buyer, hence, cost corresponding to the revenue has been deferred.

Excise Duty

Under previous GAAP, revenue from sale of goods was presented net of the excise duty on sales. Under Ind AS, revenue from sale of goods is presented inclusive of excise duty. Excise duty is presented in the Statement of Profit and Loss as an expense. This has resulted in an increase in the revenue from operations and expenses for the year ended 31 March 2016. The total comprehensive income for the year ended and equity as at 31 March 2016 has remained unchanged.

Cash incentives - Under IGAAP, cash incentives provided to customers were recorded under Other expenses. Under Ind AS, all such cash incentives given to customers are recorded net off revenue. This has resulted in reduction in sales and other expenses and will have no impact on profit. f Fair Valuation of derivatives:

Under Indian GAAP, the premium and discount on forward contracts were amortized over the contract period. However, under Ind AS all derivatives are measured at fair value at each reporting period and changes therein are recognized in profit and loss.

g Financial Liabilities:

As per Schedule III of companies act, financial liabilities are disclosed as other financial liabilities, which are earlier shown as other current liabilities. h Interest free deposit & Advance rent

As per Ind AS 109, all financial assets and liabilities are to be measured at fair value on initial recognition. Accordingly, security deposits placed / collected in relation to arrangements which are non-cancellable for limited periods, are to be recognized at their respective fair values and the difference between fair value and transaction price is recognized in opening reserves at the transition date and changes thereafter have to be recognized in statement of profit and loss. i Fair valuation of investments:

Under Indian GAAP, the Company accounted for long term investments at cost less provision for other than temporary diminution in the value of investments. Under Ind AS, the Company has designated such investments as FVTPL , which are measured at fair value. At the date of transition to Ind AS, difference between the instruments'' fair value and Indian GAAP carrying amount has been recognized in the statement of profit and loss. j Bill discounted without recourse

Under Ind AS, the trade receivables without recourse have been derecognized and corresponding discounting charges have been expensed as finance cost.

k Employee Benefit

Both under IGAAP and Ind-AS, the Company recognized costs related to its post-employment defined benefit plan on an actuarial basis. Under IGAAP, the entire cost, including actuarial gains and losses, are charged to profit or loss. Under Ind-AS, remeasurements [comprising of 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 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 OCI.
