Accounting Policy Year : Mar '14
a) Convention
 The financial statements are prepared under the historical cost
 convention in accordance with the applicable Accounting Standards and
 the provisions of the Companies Act, 1956.
 b) Use of Estimates
 The preparation of financial statements require the management of the
 Company to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported
 balances of assets and liabilities and disclosures relating to the
 contingent liabilities as at the date of the financial statements and
 the reported amount of income and expenses during the year. Examples of
 such estimates include provisions for doubtful debts, employee
 benefits, provision for income taxes, useful life of depreciable fixed
 assets and provision for impairment.
 c) Fixed Assets
 Fixed assets are stated at cost (or valuation as applicable) less
 depreciation.  Cost includes expenses incidental to the installation of
 the assets and attributable borrowing costs. Cost also includes
 exchange differences arising on reporting of long term foreign currency
 monetary items at rates different from those at which they were
 initially recorded during the period or reported in previous financial
 statements, insofar as they relate to acquisition of a depreciable
 capital asset.
 Valuation of freehold land and leasehold rights on properties situated
 at Mumbai, Bangalore and Goa was carried out during March 2009. The
 fixed assets of Goa were initially revalued in the year 2001 and that
 of Mumbai in the year 2004. Valuation was carried out in all the cases
 by professional valuers, the basis of valuation being realisable value
 as determined by the valuer.
 Revalued fixed assets are stated based on the revaluation and all other
 fixed assets are stated at cost. Additions on account of valuation are
 credited to Revaluation Reserve.
 d) Depreciation and Amortisation
 Depreciation on fixed assets is provided on straight-line method at
 rates specified in Schedule XIV to the Companies Act, 1956.
 Depreciation on additions / deletions during the year are provided on
 pro-rata basis. Assets purchased / installed during the year costing
 less than Rs. 5,000 each are fully depreciated. Premium and other
 capitalised cost relating to leasehold land is amortised over the
 period of lease. Revaluation Reserve is withdrawn to the extent of
 incremental depreciation on account of revaluation.
 Buildings constructed on leasehold land are depreciated at the
 applicable rate on the assumption that the lease will be renewed in the
 normal course.
 Depreciation on Computer Software is provided over a period of six
 years.  License fee and Franchise fee are amortised over five years.
 e) Investments
 Current investments are carried at lower of cost and quoted / fair
 value. Long- term investments are carried at cost.
 f) Inventories
 Inventories are valued at lower of cost (weighted average basis) or net
 realisable value.
 g) Employee benefit
 i) Post-employment benefit plans
 Contribution to defined contributory retirement benefit schemes are
 recognised as an expense when employees have rendered services
 entitling them to contributions.
 For defined benefit schemes, the cost of providing benefits is
 determined using the Project Unit Credit Method, with actuarial
 valuation being carried out at each Balance Sheet Date. Actuarial gains
 and losses are recognized in full in the profit and loss account for
 the period in which they occur. Past service cost is recognized
 immediately to the extent that the benefits are already vested, and
 otherwise it is amortized on straight-line basis over the average
 period until the benefits become eligible for being vested.
 ii) Short–term employee benefits
 The undiscounted amount of short term employee benefits expected to be
 paid in exchange for the services rendered by employees is recognised
 during the period when the employee renders the service.  These
 benefits include compensated absences such as paid annual leave.  iii)
 Long-term employee benefits Compensated absences which are not expected
 to occur within twelve months after the end of the period in which the
 employee renders the related services are recognized as a liability at
 the present value of the defined benefit obligation at the Balance
 Sheet date.
 h) Recognition of income and Expenditure
 Revenue/Incomes and Costs/Expenditures are accounted on accrual.
 i) Borrowing Costs
 Borrowing costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition and
 construction of qualifying assets are capitalised. A qualifying asset
 is an asset that necessarily takes substantial period of time to get
 ready for its intended use. Gains/Losses (net) on settlement of
 derivative contracts where they relate to the acquisition or
 construction of fixed assets are adjusted to the carrying cost of such
 j) Taxation
 (i) Provision for current taxation has been made in accordance with the
 Income Tax laws applicable to the assessment year.
 (ii) Wealth Tax for the year has been provided as required under the
 Wealth Tax Act and Rules, 1957.
 (iii) Deferred tax is recognized on timing difference being the
 difference between taxable income and accounting income that originates
 in one period and is capable of reversal in one or more subsequent
 periods.  Where there is unabsorbed depreciation, or carry forward
 losses, deferred tax assets are recognised only if there is virtual
 certainty of realisation of such assets.
 (iv) Minium Alternate Tax (MAT) credit is recognised as an asset only
 when and to the extent there is covincing evidence that the Company
 will pay normal income tax during the specified period. Such asset is
 reviewed at each Balance Sheet date and the carrying amount is written
 down to the extent there is no longer a convincing evidence that the
 Company will be liable to pay normal income tax during the specified
 k) Impairment of assets
 The carrying amounts of assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date,
 if there is any indication of impairment. If any such indication
 exists, the recoverable amount of such assets is estimated. An
 impairment loss is recognized wherever the carrying amount of the
 assets exceeds its recoverable amount. The recoverable amount is
 greater of the net selling price or value in use. In assessing value in
 use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present
 value, based on an appropriate discounting factor.
 After impairment, depreciation is provided on the revised carrying
 amount of the assets over its remaining useful life. A previously
 recognized impairment loss is increased or reversed depending on
 changes in circumstances.  However, the carrying value after reversal
 is not increased beyond the carrying value that would have prevailed by
 charging usual depreciation if there was no impairment.
 l) Foreign Currency Transaction
 Foreign currency transactions are recorded at the rates of exchange
 prevailing on the date of the transactions.
 In line with option given by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs vide
 Notification No G.S.R.225 (E) dated 31st March, 2009, the exchange
 differences arising on reporting of long term foreign currency monetary
 items at rates different from those at which they were initially
 recorded during the period, or reported in previous financial
 statements, in so far as they relate to acquisition of a depreciable
 capital asset, are added to or deducted from the cost of the asset and
 depreciated over the balance life of the asset, and in other cases are
 accumulated in ''Foreign Currency Monetary Item Translation Difference
 Account'' and amortized over the balance period of such long-term asset/
 liability but not beyond 31st March, 2020, by recognising income or
 expense in each of the periods except the exchange differences which
 are regarded as adjustment to interest costs in terms of paragraph 4(e)
 of Accounting Standard AS (16) Borrowing costs.
 All other monetary assets and liabilities in foreign currency as at
 Balance Sheet date are translated at rates prevailing at the year-end
 and the resultant net gains or losses are recognized as income or
 expense in the year in which they arise.
 m) Assets taken on lease
 In respect of operating lease transactions, the assets are not
 capitalised in the books of the Company and the lease payments are
 charged to the Profit and Loss Account.
 n) Accounting for Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent
 A provision is recognised when the Company has a present obligation as
 a result of past event and it is probable that an outflow of resources
 will be required to settle the obligation, in respect of which a
 reliable estimate can be made. Provisions are not discounted to present
 value and are determined as best estimates required to settle the
 obligation at the Balance Sheet date.  Contingent Liability is
 disclosed in case of (i) A present obligation arising from past events,
 when it is not probable that an outflow of resources will be required
 to settle that obligation; (ii) A present obligation when no reliable
 estimate is possible; and (iii) A possible obligation arising from past
 events where the probability of
 outflow of resources is remote.  Contingent Assets are not recognized
 in the financial statements.
 o) Government Grants
 Revenue Grants are recognized in the Profit and Loss account in
 accordance with the related scheme and in the period in which these are
