A.  Basis of Preparation
 The Banks financial statements are prepared under the historical cost
 convention, on the accrual basis of accounting, unless otherwise stated
 and conform in all material aspects to Generally Accepted Accounting
 Principles (GAAP) in India, which comprise applicable statutory
 provisions, regulatory norms/guidelines prescribed by Reserve Bank of
 India (RBI), Accounting Standards issued by the Institute of Chartered
 Accountants of India (ICAI), and the practices prevalent in the banking
 industry in India.
 B.  Use of Estimates
 The preparation of financial statements requires the management to make
 estimates and assumptions considered in the reported amount of assets

 the preparation of the financial statements are prudent and reasonable.
 Future results could differ from these estimates.

 b) Segment Reporting:
 1.  Segment Identification
 I.  Primary (Business Segment)
 The following are the primary segments of the Bank:- - Treasury
 - Corporate / Wholesale Banking
 - Retail Banking
 - Other Banking Business
 The present accounting and information system of the Bank does not
 support capturing and extraction of the data in respect of the above
 segments separately.  However, based on the present internal,
 organisational and management reporting structure and the nature of
 their risk and returns, the data on the primary segments have been
 computed as under:
 i.  Treasury - The Treasury Segment includes the entire investment
 portfolio and trading in foreign exchange contracts and derivative
 contracts. The revenue of the treasury segment primarily consists of
 fees and gains or losses from trading operations and interest income on
 the investment portfolio.
 ii.  Corporate / Wholesale Banking - The Corporate / Wholesale Banking
 segment comprises the lending activities of Corporate Accounts Group,
 Mid Corporate Accounts Group and Stressed Assets Management Group.
 These include providing loans and transaction services to corporate and
 institutional clients and further include non-treasury operations of
 foreign offices.
 iii. Retail Banking - The Retail Banking Segment comprises of branches
 in National Banking Group, which primarily includes Personal Banking
 activities including lending activities to corporate customers having
 banking relations with branches in the National Banking Group. This
 segment also includes agency business and ATMs.
 iv.  Other Banking business - Segments not classified under (i) to
 (iii) above are classified under this primary segment.
 II.  Secondary (Geographical Segment)
 i) Domestic Operations - Branches/Offices having operations in India
 ii) Foreign Operations - Branches/Offices having operations outside
 India and offshore Banking units having operations in India
 III. Pricing of Inter-segmental Transfers
 The Retail Banking segment is the primary resource mobilising unit. The
 Corporate/Wholesale Banking and Treasury segments are recipient of
 funds from Retail Banking. Market related Funds Transfer Pricing
 (MRFTP) is followed under which a separate unit called Funding Centre
 has been created. The Funding Centre notionally buys funds that the
 business units raise in the form of deposits or borrowings and
 notionally sell funds to business units engaged in creating assets.
 IV.  Allocation of Expenses, Assets and Liabilities
 Expenses incurred at Corporate Centre establishments directly
 attributable either to Corporate / Wholesale and Retail Banking
 Operations or to Treasury Operations segment, are allocated
 accordingly. Expenses not directly attributable are allocated on the
 basis of the ratio of number of employees in each segment/ratio of
 directly attributable expenses.
 The Bank has certain common assets and liabilities, which cannot be
 attributed to any segment , and the same are treated as unallocated.
 During the year, the Bank has further refined the segmental transfer
 pricing mechanism in order to report more relevant segment results.
 This change effects the segment results inter se and has no impact on
 the financials of the bank. The effect of the change on the segment
 results is not fairly determined.
