Depreciation on Fixed assets is provided on straight line method as per useful life provided in Schedule II of the Companies Act, 2013. Cement manufacturing plant is considered as continuous process plant. Expenditure on Power Transmission Lines is depreciated over the period of useful life of Thermal Power Plant.

b) Foreign Currency Transactions:

Foreign Currency transactions are initially recognized at the exchange rates prevailing on the date of the transaction. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currency are translated in to rupees at exchange rate prevailing on the date of Balance Sheet. All exchange differences are dealt with in the Statement of Profit & Loss except in case of long-term liabilities where they relate to acquisition of fixed assets, in which case, they are adjusted to carrying cost of such assets as per MCA notification dated December 29, 2011, Para 46A,GSR_914 for accounting period starting from 01.04.2011.

c) Inventory and its valuation:

i) Finished and semi-finished goods are valued at lower of cost and net realizable value.

iii) Cost is determined on a weighted average basis.

d) Employee Benefits:

i) Defined Benefit Plans: Retirement benefits in the form of gratuity are considered as defined benefit obligations and are provided for on the basis of an actuarial valuation, using the projected unit credit method, as at the date of Balance Sheet.

A qualifying asset is one which necessarily takes substantial period to get ready for intended use. All other borrowing costs are charged to revenue account.

f) Revenue Recognition:

i) Revenue is recognized when the significant risks and rewards of ownership of the goods have passed to the buyer. Accordingly Domestic sales are accounted on dispatch of products to customers and Export sales are accounted on the basis of date of Bill of Lading.

iii) Interest Income is recognized on a time proportion basis taking into account the amount outstanding and the rate applicable.

g) Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets:

A provision is recognized when an enterprise 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. A provision is derecognized when the enterprise has ascertained, based on sufficient documentary evidence, that the present obligation does not require an outflow of resources to settle that obligation. Provisions are not discounted to its present value and are determined based on management estimate required to settle the obligation at the balance sheet date and adjusted to reflect the current management estimates.

No provision is recognized for any possible obligation that arises from past events and the existence of which will be confirmed only by the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain future events and not wholly within the control of the Company; or any present obligation that arises from past events but is not recognized because it is not probable that an outflow of resources embodying economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation; or a reliable estimate of the amount of obligation cannot be made. Such obligations are recorded as contingent liabilities. These are assessed continually and only that part of the obligation for which an outflow of resources embodying economic benefits is probable, is provided for, except in the extremely rare circumstances where no reliable estimate can be made. Contingent assets are not recognized in the financial statements since this may result in the recognition of income that may never be realized.

h) Taxation:

Income-tax expense comprises current tax and deferred tax charge or credit. Provision for current tax is made on the basis of the assessable income at the tax rate applicable to the relevant assessment year.

Deferred tax asset and deferred tax liability are calculated by applying tax rate and tax laws that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the Balance Sheet date. Deferred tax assets on account of timing differences are recognized, only to the extent there is a reasonable certainty of its realization. Deferred tax assets are reviewed at each Balance Sheet date to reassure realization.

MAT credit asset is recognized and carried forward only if there is a reasonable certainty of it being set off against regular tax payable within the stipulated statutory period. Deferred tax asset on unabsorbed depreciation and carried forward losses is recognized only if there is virtual certainty supported by convincing evidence.

i) Impairment of Fixed Assets:

The carrying amounts of assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date, if there is any indication of impairment based on internal/ external factors. An impairment loss is recognized wherever the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its recoverable amount. The recoverable amount is the greater of the asset''s net selling price and value in use. In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value at the weighted average cost of capital.

After impairment, depreciation is provided on the revised carrying amount of the asset 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.
