ii. Revenue from construction / project related activity:

Revenue from construction contract is recognised by reference to the overall estimated profitability of the contract under the percentage of completion method. Foreseeable losses in any contract are provided irrespective of the stage of completion of the contract activity. The stage of completion of the contract is determined considering the nature of the contract, technical evaluation of work completed / measurement of physical progress and proportion of the cost incurred to the estimated total cost.

Contract cost comprises of all costs that relate directly to the specified contract, incidental costs attributable to the contract including allocated overheads and warranty costs.

Expenditure incurred during construction period:

Apart from costs related directly to the construction of an asset, indirect expenses incurred up to the date of commencement of commercial production which are incidental and related to construction are capitalised as part of construction cost. Income, if any, earned during the construction period is deducted from the indirect costs.

ii. Intangible Assets:

An item is recognized as an intangible asset if it meets the definition of an intangible asset, it is probable that future economic benefits will flow to the Company and the cost of the assets can be reliably measured.

d. Capital Work-in-Progress (CWIP):

Capital work-in-progress comprises of the cost of fixed assets that are not yet ready for their intended use at the reporting date.

Cost of material consumed, erection charges thereon along with other related expenses incurred for the projects are shown as CWIP for capitalization.

Expenditure attributable to construction of fixed assets are identified and allocated on a systematic basis to the cost of the related asset.

Interest during construction and expenditure (net) allocated to construction are apportioned to CWIP on the basis of the closing balance of specific asset or part of asset being capitalized. The balance, if any, left after such capitalization is kept as a separate item under the CWIP Schedule.

Claims for price variation / exchange rate variation in case of contracts are accounted for on acceptance/ receipt of claims.

Any other expenditure which is not directly or indirectly attributable to the construction of the Project / construction of the fixed asset is charged off to profit and loss statement in the year in which they are incurred.

The recoverable amount of such assets is estimated as the higher of its net selling price and its value in use. An impairment loss is recognized in the profit and loss statement whenever the carrying amounts of such assets exceed its recoverable amount.

Depreciation on impaired assets related to a cash generating unit is provided by adjusting the depreciation charge in the remaining periods so as to allocate the revised carrying amount of the asset over its remaining useful life.

g. Borrowing Costs

i. Borrowing Costs directly attributable to the acquisition or construction of qualifying assets, are capitalized as part of the cost of such assets up to the date when the asset is ready for its intended use. A qualifying asset is one that necessarily takes substantial period of time to get ready for its intended use. The borrowing cost eligible for capitalization is netted off against any income arising on temporary investment of those borrowings. The capitalization of the borrowing costs shall cease when substantially all activities necessary to prepare the qualifying asset for its intended use are complete.

ii. Expenses incurred in connection with the arrangement of borrowings are written off over the period of the borrowing.

iii. Other borrowing costs are charged to revenue.

Inventories are valued at lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost is determined on the weighted average basis for valuation. Net realisable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business, less the estimated costs of completion and the estimated costs necessary to make the sale. Obsolete, defective and unserviceable stocks are duly provided for.

j. Foreign Exchange Transactions

Foreign Currency transactions are initially recorded at the exchange rates prevailing on the date of the transaction. Foreign Currency assets and liabilities (monetary items) are reported at the exchange rate prevailing on the balance sheet date.

ii. In other cases, foreign exchange differences are accumulated in Foreign Currency Monetary Item Translation difference account and amortized over the balance period of such long term assets / liabilities.

Non-monetary items such as investments are carried at historical cost using the exchange rates on the date of the transaction.

Forward contracts other than those entered into to hedge foreign currency risk on unexecuted firm commitments or of highly probable forecast transactions are treated as foreign currency transactions and accounted accordingly. Exchange differences arising on such contracts are recognized in the period in which they arise and the premium paid is accounted as expense over the period of the contract.

All other exchange differences are dealt with in the profit and loss statement

k. Employee benefits

Retirement benefits in the form of Provident Fund and Family Pension Scheme are defined contribution schemes and the contributions are charged to the profit and loss statement of the year when the contributions to the respective funds are due.

l. Taxation

The deferred tax charge or credit and the corresponding deferred tax liabilities or assets are recognised using the tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the balance sheet date.

Deferred tax assets are recognised only to the extent there is reasonable certainty that the assets can be realised in future; however where there is unabsorbed depreciation or carry forward loss under taxation laws, deferred tax assets are recognised only if there is a virtual certainty of realisation of such assets. Deferred tax assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date and written down or written up to reflect the amount that is reasonably / virtually certain as the case may be to be realised.

Tax credit is recognised in respect of Minimum Alternate Tax (MAT) paid in terms of the Income Tax Act, 1961 based on convincing evidence that the Company will pay normal income tax within the statutory time frame and the same is reviewed at each balance sheet date.

m. Provisions and Contingent Liabilities

Provisions are recognised based on the best estimate of the expenditure required to settle the present obligation at the balance sheet date when,

a) the Company has a present obligation as a result of a past event

b) a probable outflow of resources is expected to settle the obligation and

c) the amount of the obligation can be reliably estimated.

Where some or all the expenditure required to settle a provision is expected to be reimbursed by another party, such reimbursement is recognised to the extent of provision or contingent liability as the case may be, only when it is virtually certain that the reimbursement will be received.

Contingent liability is disclosed in the case of:

a) a present obligation arising from a past event, when it is not probable that a outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation or a reliable estimate of the amount of obligation cannot be made.

b) a possible obligation arising from past events, the existence of which will be confirmed only by the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain future events not within the control of the enterprise.
