 India and Others. Europe comprises business operations conducted by the
 Company in the United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Belgium,
 Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Finland, Poland and Switzerland. Since
 services provided by the Company within these European entities are
 subject to similar risks and returns, their operating results have been
 reported as one segment, namely Europe. India has been identified as a
 separate segment. All other customers, mainly in Japan, Australia, New
 Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Israel, South Korea, China, Czech
 Republic, Macau, UAE, Portugal, Russia and Hong Kong are included in
 (iii) Segment accounting policies
 The accounting principles consistently used in the preparation of the
 financial statements and consistently applied to record revenue and
 expenditure in individual segments are as set out in note 1 to the
 financial statements on significant accounting policies. The accounting
 policies in relation to segment accounting are as under:
 a) Segment revenue and expenses
 Segment revenue is directly attributable to the segment and segment
 expenses have been allocated to various segments on the basis of
 specific identification. However, segment revenue does not include
 other income. Segment expenses do not include, premium amortized on
 bonds, diminution allowance in respect of current and trade
 investments, other than temporary diminution in the value of long term
 investments, and finance cost.
 b) Segment assets and liabilities
 Assets and liabilities are not identified to any reportable segments,
 since these are increasingly used interchangeably across segments and
 consequently, the management believes that it is not practicable or
 meaningful to provide segment disclosures relating to total assets and
 3. Derivative Financial Instruments
 The Company is exposed to foreign currency fluctuations on foreign
 currency assets / liabilities and forecast cash flows denominated in
 foreign currency. The use of derivatives to hedge foreign currency
 forecast cash flows is governed by the Company''s strategy, which
 provides principles on the use of such forward contracts and currency
 options consistent with the Company''s Risk Management Policy. The
 counter parties in these derivative instruments are banks and the
 Company considers the risks of non-performance by the counterparty as
 insignificant. The Company has entered into a series of foreign
 exchange forward contracts that are designated as cash flow hedges and
 the related forecasted transactions extend through April 2018. The
 Company does not use forward contracts and currency options for
 speculative purposes.
