 7 Derivative Financial Instruments
 (a) The Company has adopted Accounting Standard 30, Financial
 Instruments: Recognition and Measurement issued by The Institute of
 Chartered Accountants of India so far as it relates to derivative
 (b) In the ordinary course of business, the Company is exposed to risks
 resulting from changes in prices of commodity, exchange rate
 fluctuation and interest rate movements. It manages its exposure to
 these risks through derivative financial instruments. It uses
 derivative instruments such as forwards, futures, swaps and options to
 manage these risks. These derivative financial instruments reduce the
 impact of both favourable and unfavourable fluctuations. Except where
 noted, the derivative contracts are marked- to-market (MTM) and the
 related gains and losses are included in the Statement of Profit and
 Loss in the current accounting period.
 The Company''s risk management activities are subject to the management,
 direction and control of Risk Management Board (RMB). The RMB is
 composed of two directors including Managing Director, Chief Financial
 Officer and other officers and employees selected by the Managing
 Director. The RMB reports to the Board of Directors on the scope of its
 The decision of whether and when to execute derivative financial
 instruments along with its tenure can vary from period to period
 depending on market conditions and the relative costs of the
 instruments. The tenure is always linked to the timing of the
 underlying exposure, with the connection between the two being
 regularly monitored. The Company is exposed to losses in the event of
 non-performance by the counterparties to the derivative contracts. All
 derivative contracts are executed with counterparties that, in our
 judgment, are creditworthy. The credit levels are reviewed to ensure
 that there is not an inappropriate concentration of outstanding to any
 particular counterparty.
 Commodity Price Risk Copper and Precious Metals
 This business is conducted under a conversion model. The prices of
 input and output are derived from the same benchmark and/or are linked
 to each other through a defined formula. The objective of risk
 management is to attempt to use derivatives to match the price
 fluctuations arising out of the timing mismatch in pricing the input
 and output so as to ''pass through'' the change in input cost to
 customers to make the margins immune to the fluctuations in prices of
 the input and output.
 This business is vertically integrated. The main raw material viz.
 bauxite (mostly mined from own mines) and other purchased raw materials
 do not have any linkage with the output price which is Aluminium LME
 prices. When the prices of input(s) and output(s) do not follow the
 above condition, then risk management attempts to use derivatives so as
 to protect the margins from adverse movements in prices on either side,
 i.e. from a rise in input cost or from a fall in output price.
 As a condition of sale, customers often require the Company to enter
 into fixed price commitments.  These commitments expose the Company to
 the risk of fluctuating aluminum prices between the time the order is
 committed and the time that the material is shipped. The Company may
 enter into derivative financial instruments to mitigate the risk
 arising out of the fixed price commitments. Consequently, the gain or
 loss resulting from movements in the price of aluminum on these
 contracts would generally be offset by an equal and opposite impact on
 the net sales and purchases being hedged.
 Foreign Currency Exchange Risk
 Exchange rate movements, particularly the United States Dollar (USD)
 and Euro (EUR) against Indian Rupee (INR), have an impact on our
 operating results. In addition to the foreign exchange flow from
 exports, the commodity prices in the domestic market are derived based
 on the landed cost of imports in India where LME prices and USD/INR
 exchange rate are the main factors. In case of conversion business, the
 objective is to match the exchange rate of outflows and related inflows
 through derivative financial instruments. With respect to Aluminium
 business where costs are predominantly in INR, the strengthening of INR
 against USD adversely affects the profitability of the business and
 benefits when INR depreciates against USD. The company enters into
 various foreign exchange contracts to protect profitability. The
 Company also enters into various foreign exchange contracts to mitigate
 the risk arising out of foreign currency exchange rate movement in
 foreign currency contracts executed with foreign suppliers to procure
 capital items for its project activities.
 Embedded derivatives
 Copper concentrate is purchased on future pricing model based on
 month''s average LME (in case of copper) / LBMA (in case of gold and
 silver). Since the value of the concentrate changes with response to
 change in commodity pricing indices, embedded derivatives (ED) is
 identified and segregated in the contract.  The ED so segregated, is
 treated like commodity derivative and qualify for hedge accounting.
 These derivatives are put into a Fair Value hedge relationship with
 The objective of hedge designation of the embedded commodity derivative
 is to offset the volatility in the Statement of Profit and Loss due to
 change in value of un-priced inventory with response to LME / LBMA.
