 gives future economic benefits in the form of adjustment to future
 income tax liability, is considered as an asset if there is convincing

 is recognised as an asset in the Balance Sheet when it is highly
 probable that future economic benefit associated with it will flow to

 liabilities are recognised for all timing differences. Deferred tax
 assets are recognised for timing differences of items other than
 unabsorbed depreciation and carry forward losses only to the extent
 that reasonable certainty exists that sufficient future taxable income
 will be available against which these can be realised. However, if
 there is unabsorbed depreciation and carry forward of losses and items
 relating to capital losses, deferred tax assets are recognised only if
 there is virtual certainty supported by convincing evidence that there
 will be sufficient future taxable income available to realise the
 assets. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset if such items

 a result of past events and it is probable that an outflow of resources

 (loss) after tax (including the post tax effect of extraordinary items,
 if any) as adjusted for dividend, interest and other charges to expense
 or income (net of any attributable taxes) relating to the dilutive
 potential equity shares,by the weighted average number of equity shares
 considered for deriving basic earnings per share and the weighted
 average number of equity shares which could have been issued on the
 conversion of all dilutive potential equity shares. Potential equity
 shares are deemed to be dilutive only if their conversion to equity
 shares would decrease the net profit per share from continuing ordinary
 operations. Potential dilutive equity shares are deemed to be converted
 as at the beginning of the period, unless they have been issued at a
 later date. The dilutive potential equity shares are adjusted for the
 proceeds receivable had the shares been actually issued at fair value
 (i.e. average market value of the outstanding shares). Dilutive
 potential equity shares are determined independently for each period
 presented. The number of equity shares and potentially dilutive equity
 shares are adjusted for share splits / reverse share splits and bonus
 shares, as appropriate.
