 1.1 Basis of preparation
 The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in
 accordance with the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in India
 (Indian GAAP) to comply with the Accounting Standards notified under
 Section 133 of the Companies Act, 2013, read with paragraph 7 of the
 Companies (Accounts) Rules 2014. The financial statements have been
 prepared on accrual basis under the historical cost convention. The
 accounting policies adopted in the preparation of the financial
 statements are consistent with those followed in the previous year.
 1.2 Use of estimates
 The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with Indian
 GAAP requires the Management to make estimates and assumptions
 considered in the reported amounts of assets and liabilities (including
 contingent liabilities) and the reported income and expenses during the
 year. The Management believes that the estimates used in preparation of
 the financial statements are prudent and reasonable. Future results
 could differ due to these estimates. Difference between the actual
 results and the estimates are recognized in the periods in which the
 results are known / materialize.
 1.3 Tangible Fixed Assets:
 a.  Tangible fixed assets are stated at cost less accumulated
 depreciation and impairment losses, if any. The cost of fixed asset
 comprises of its purchase price, non-refundable taxes and levies,
 freight and other incidental expenses related to the acquisition and
 installation of the respective assets. Borrowing costs attributable to
 acquisition or construction of qualifying fixed assets is capitalized
 to respective assets when the time taken to put the assets to use is
 substantial. Exchange differences arising on restatement / settlement
 of long-term foreign currency borrowings relating to acquisition of
 depreciable fixed assets are adjusted to the cost of the respective
 assets and depreciated. Subsequent expenditure relating to fixed assets
 is capitalized only if such expenditure results in an increase in the
 future benefits from such asset beyond its previously assessed standard
 of performance.
 b.  Pre-operative expenditure comprising of revenue expenses incurred
 in connection with project implementation during the period up to
 commencement of commercial production are treated as part of project
 costs and are capitalized. Such expenses are capitalized only if the
 project to which they relate, involve substantial expansion of capacity
 or upgradation.
 1.4 Depreciation on tangible fixed assets:
 Depreciation on fixed assets is provided on a straight-line method
 based on the useful lives estimated by the management which are in
 accordance with Schedule II to the Companies Act, 2013.
 The management believes that depreciation rates currently used fairly
 reflect its estimate of the useful lives and residual values of fixed
 1.5 Capital Work-in-progress:
 Projects under which assets are not ready for their intended use and
 other capital work-in-progress are carried at cost, comprising direct
 cost, related incidental expenses and attributable interest.
 1.6 Intangible assets:
 Intangible assets acquired separately are measured on initial
 recognition at cost. The cost of intangible assets acquired in an
 amalgamation in the nature of purchase is their fair value as at the
 date of amalgamation. Following initial recognition, intangible assets
 are carried at cost less accumulated amortization and accumulated
 impairment losses, if any. Internally generated intangible assets,
 excluding capitalized development costs, are not capitalized and the
 expenditure is reflected in the statement of profit and loss in the
 year in which the expenditure is incurred.
 Software costs are capitalized and recognized as intangible assets
 based on materiality, accounting prudence and significant economic
 benefits expected to flow there from for a period longer than one year.
 Intangible assets are amortized on a straight line basis over the
 estimated useful lives. The company uses a rebuttable presumption that
 the useful life of an intangible asset will not exceed ten years from
 the date when the asset is available for use. All intangible assets are
 assessed for impairment whenever there is an indication that the
 intangible asset may be impaired.
 The amortization period and the amortization method are reviewed
 periodically. If the expected useful life of the asset is significantly
 different from previous estimates, the amortization period is changed
 accordingly. If there has been a significant change in the expected
 pattern of economic benefits from the asset, the amortization method is
 changed to reflect the changed pattern.
 Gains or losses arising from de recognition of an intangible asset are
 measured as the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the
 carrying amount of the asset and are recognized in the statement of
 profit and loss when the asset is derecognized.
 1.7 Investments:
 Long-term investments and investments in subsidiary companies are
 carried at cost less provision for other than temporary diminution in
 the carrying value of each investment.
 Current investments are carried at lower of cost and fair value.
 Diminution in value is charged to the statement of profit and loss.
 1.8 Valuation of Inventories:
 Inventories are valued at the lower of cost and net realizable value.
 Net realizable value (NRV) is the estimated selling price in the
 ordinary course of the business, less the estimated costs of completion
 and the estimated costs necessary to make the sale. Cost of inventories
 comprises all cost of purchase, cost of conversion and other costs
 incurred in bringing the inventories to their present location and
 condition. The cost of all categories of inventory is determined using
 weighted average cost method.
 a) Inventories of raw material, packing material, consumables and
 stores and spares are valued at cost as per weighted average method.

 tax assets are recognized only if there is a virtual certainly of
 realization of such assets.

 outstanding during the year. For the purpose of calculating diluted
 earnings per share, profit after tax for the year and the weighted
 average number of shares outstanding during the year are adjusted for
 the effects of all dilutive potential equity shares. The dilutive
 potential equity shares are deemed converted as of the beginning of the
 period, unless they have been issued at a later date. The diluted
 potential equity shares have been adjusted for the proceeds receivable
 had the shares been actually issued at fair value (i.e., the average
 market value of the outstanding shares).

 a result of past events and it is probable that an outflow of resources
 embodying economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation.
 Provisions are measured at the best estimate of the expenditure
 required to settle the present obligation at the balance sheet date.
 Contingent liabilities and contingent assets
 A disclosure for a contingent liability is made when there is a
 possible obligation or a present obligation that may, but probably will
 not, require an outflow of resources. Where there is a possible
 obligation or a present obligation in respect of which the likelihood
 of outflow of resources is remote, no provision or disclosure is made.
 Contingent assets are not recognised in the financial statements.
 However, contingent assets are assessed continually and if it is
 virtually certain that an inflow of economic benefits will arise, the
 asset and related income are recognised in the period in which the
 change occurs.
 1.19 Impairment
 The Company assesses at each reporting date whether there is an
 indication that an asset/cash generating unit may be impaired. If any
 indication exists the Company estimates the recoverable amount of such
 assets and if carrying amount exceeds the recoverable amount,
 impairment is recognised. The recoverable amount is the higher of the
 net selling price and its value in use. In assessing value in use, the
 estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using
 an appropriate discount factor. When there is indication that
 previously recognised impairment loss no longer exists or may have
 decreased such reversal of impairment loss is recognised in the
 Statement of Profit and Loss.
