3.2 Disclosures on risk exposure in derivatives
i. Qualitative Disclosure
The Bank enters into derivative contracts such as interest rate swaps,
currency swaps and currency options to hedge on balance sheet assets
and liabilities or to meet client requirements as well as for trading
purpose as per policy approved by the Board. These products are used
for hedging risk, reducing cost and increasing the yield. In such
transactions the types of risks to which the bank is exposed to, are
credit risk, market risk, operational risk etc.
Risk management is an integral part of bank''s business management. Bank
has risk management policies designed to identify and analyse risks, to
set appropriate risk limits and to monitor these risks and limits on an
ongoing basis by means of reliable and up to date management
information systems. The risk management policies and major control
limits are approved by the Board of Directors and they are monitored
and reviewed regularly. The organization of the Bank is conducive to
managing risks. There is sufficient awareness of the risks and the size
of exposure of the trading activities in derivative operations.
The Bank has a Risk Management Committee of Directors presided over by
the Chairman and Managing Director.
Hedging swaps are accounted for on an accrual basis except for swap
designated with an asset and liability that is carried at market value
or lower of cost/ market value. In such cases, the swaps are marked to
market and the resulting gain or loss is recorded as an adjustment to
the market value of the designated asset or liability. Gains or losses
on the termination of swaps are recognised when the offsetting gain or
loss is recognised on the designated asset or liability. This implies
that any gain or loss on the terminated swap would be deferred and
recognised over the shorter of the remaining contracting life of the
swap or the remaining life of the asset/liability.
Trading derivative positions are marked to market (MTM) and the
resulting losses, if any, are recognised in the profit and loss
account. Profit, if any, are not recognised on the settlement date.

income or expenses.

Directors. The derivative transactions are subject to concurrent,
internal, statutory and regulatory audits.
The counter parties to the transactions are banks, primary dealers and
corporate entities. The deals are done under approved exposure limits.
The Bank has adopted the Current Exposure method prescribed by
Reserve Bank of India for measuring Credit Exposures arising on account
of interest rate and foreign exchange derivative transactions. Current
exposure method is the sum of current credit exposure and potential
future exposure of these contracts.
The current credit exposure is the sum of positive mark to market value
of these contracts i.e. when the Bank has to receive money from the
Potential future credit exposure is determined by multiplying the
notional principal amount of these contracts irrespective of whether
the contract has zero, positive or negative mark to market value by the
relevant add-on factors as under according to the nature and residual
maturity of the instrument.
While computing the credit exposure, sold options are excluded
wherever the entire premium/fee or any other form of income is received
As per the extant RBI guidelines credit exposures computed as per the
current Mark to Market value of the contracts, also attracts
provisioning requirement as applicable to the loan assets in the
Standard category, of the concerned counter party. At present the
provision is to be maintained at 0.4% of the risk weighted assets. The
Bank makes the requisite provision as aforesaid in the books.
Exposure is reckoned as Sanctioned Limit or Balance outstanding
whichever is higher. The above position is arrived at after taking into
