1.3 Use of Estimates:
The Preparation of the financial statements in conformity with Indian
GAAP requires that the management makes estimates and assumptions that
affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of
contingent liabilities as at the date of financial statements and
reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reported period.
Although such estimates are on a reasonable and prudent basis taking
into account all available information, actual results could differ
from estimates. Differences on account of revision of estimates /
actual outcome and existing estimates are recognised prospectively once
such results are known / materialized in accordance with the
requirements of the respective accounting standard, as may be
1.4 Tangible fixed assets:
Fixed assets are stated at cost, net of accumulated depreciation and
accumulated impairment losses, if any. The cost comprises purchase
price, non refundable taxes, borrowing costs, if capitalization
criteria are met and directly attributable cost of bringing the asset
to its present location and condition for the intended use. Any trade
discounts and rebates are deducted in arriving at the purchase price.
1.5 Intangible assets:
Intangible fixed assets are recognized only if they are separately
identifiable and the Company expects to receive the future economic
benefits arising out of them and cost of the assets can be measured
reliably. Intangible assets are carried at cost less accumulated
amortisation and accumulated impairment losses, if any
1.6 Depreciation and amortization:
1.6.1 Depreciation on tangible fixed assets is computed on written down
value method, at the rates and manner prescribed in Schedule XIV to the
Act except with respect to Steel shuttering material, Racks and pallets
and Leasehold premises. Depreciation for assets purchased / sold during
a period is proportionately charged.
Depreciation in respect of Steel Shuttering Material (included in
Shuttering Materials) has been provided on straight line method
considering a useful life of five years for the said assets.
Depreciation in respect of Racks and Pallets (included in Plant and
Equipment) has been provided on straight line method considering a
useful life of four years for the said assets. Leasehold premises are
amortized on a straight line basis over the period of lease, i.e., 30
1.6.2 Individual assets costing less than Rs. 5,000 are depreciated in
full in the year of purchase.
Intangible assets are amortized on a straight line basis over the
estimated useful economic life as follows:
Design Charges for Shuttering Materials - amortised over expected
project duration of 1-2 years
Computer software - 2 years.
The amortization period and the amortization method are reviewed at
least at each financial year end. 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. Such changes are accounted for in accordance with AS 5 Net
Profit or Loss for the Period, Prior Period Items and Changes in
1.7 Borrowing Costs :
Borrowing costs that are attributable to the acquisition, construction
or production of qualifying assets are treated as direct cost and are
capitalised as part of cost of such assets. A qualifying asset is an
asset that necessarily requires a substantial period of time to get
ready for its intended use or sale. All other borrowing costs are
recognised as an expense in the year in which they are incurred.
The carrying amounts of assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date
when required to assess whether they are recorded in excess of their
recoverable amounts, and where carrying values exceed this estimated
recoverable amount, assets are written down to their recoverable
amount. The reduction is treated as an impairment loss and is
recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss. If at the balance sheet
date there is an indication that if a previously assessed impairment
loss no longer exists, the recoverable amount is reassessed and the
assets are reflected at the recoverable amount.
Investments that are readily realizable and intended to be held as on
date of investment for not more than a year are classified as current
investments. All other investments are classified as long-term
investments. Current investments are carried at lower of cost and fair
value determined on an individual investment basis. Long-term
investments are carried at cost. However, provision for diminution in
value is recognized if it is other than temporary.

including survey of work performed, on completion of a physical
proportion of the work done and proportion of contract costs incurred.
In the event of loss is estimated, provision is made upfront for the
entire loss irrespective of stage of work done. Variations, claims and

they will fructify.

recognized on carry forward of unabsorbed depreciation and tax losses
only if there is virtual certainty that sufficient future taxable
income will be available against which such deferred tax asset can be

deferred tax assets and liabilities of change in tax rates is
recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss in the period of

1.15 Earnings Per Share:
Basic earnings per share are calculated by dividing the net profit or
loss for the period attributable to equity shareholders (after
deducting preference dividends and attributable taxes) by the weighted
average number of equity shares outstanding during the period. Partly
paid equity shares are treated as a fraction of an equity share to the
extent that they are entitled to participate in dividends relative to a
fully paid equity share during the reporting period.
The weighted average number of equity shares outstanding during the
period is adjusted for events such as bonus issue, bonus element in a
rights issue, share split, and reverse share split (consolidation of
shares) that have changed the number of equity shares outstanding,
without a corresponding change in resources.
For the purpose of calculating diluted earnings per share, the net
profit or loss for the period attributable to equity shareholders and
the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period are
adjusted for the effects of all dilutive potential equity shares.
1.16 Provision and Contingent Liabilities:
A provision is recognized when an enterprise has a present obligation
as a result of past event; 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 its
present value and are determined based on best estimate required to
settle the obligation at the balance sheet date. These are reviewed at
each balance sheet date and adjusted to reflect the current best
Contingent liabilities are stated separately by way of a note.
Contingent Liabilities are disclosed when the Company has a possible
obligation or a present obligation and it is not probable that a cash
outflow will be required to settle the obligation.

before tax is adjusted for the effects of transactions of a non-cash

investing and financing activities of the Company are separately
