 considered in the reported amounts of assets and liabilities (including
 contingent liabilities) and the reported income and expenses during the
 year. The Management believes that the estimates used in preparation of

 expenditure on making the asset ready for its intended use, other
 incidental expenses and interest on borrowings attributable to
 acquisition of qualifying fixed assets up to the date the asset is
 ready for its intended use. Machinery spares which can be used only in
 connection with an item of fixed asset and whose use is expected to be
 irregular are capitalised and depreciated over the useful life of the
 principal item of the relevant assets. Subsequent expenditure on fixed
 assets after its purchase / completion is capitalised only if such
 expenditure results in an increase in the future benefits from such
 asset beyond its previously assessed standard of performance.
 Fixed assets acquired and put to use for project purpose are
 capitalised and depreciation thereon is included in the project cost

 for securities of the Company are recorded at the fair market value of
 the assets or the fair market value of the securities issued, whichever
 is more clearly evident.
 ''Fixed assets retired from active use and held for sale are stated at
 the lower of their net book value and net realisable value and are

 intended use are carried at cost, comprising direct cost, related
 incidental expenses and attributable interest.

 capital subsidy reserve on receipt and Government grants relating to
 specific assets are deducted from the cost of such assets.
 Intangible Assets are amortized over a period of 5 years or based on
 the period of usage / licence, whichever is lower. The estimated useful
 life of intangible assets and the amortisation period are reviewed at
 the end of each financial year and the amortisation method is revised
 to reflect the changed pattern.

 substituted for cost, less its estimated residual value.

 The basic earnings/ (loss) per share is computed by dividing the net
 profit attributable to equity shareholders for the year by the weighted
 average number of equity shares outstanding during the year. The number
 of shares used in computing diluted earnings per share comprises the

 Current tax is the amount of tax payable on the taxable income for the
 year as determined in accordance with the applicable tax rates and the
 provisions of the Income Tax Act, 1961 and other applicable tax laws.
 Minimum Alternate Tax (MAT) paid in accordance with the tax laws, which
 gives future economic benefits in the form of adjustment to future
 income tax liability, is considered as an asset if there is convincing
 evidence that the Company will pay normal income tax. Accordingly, MAT
 is recognised as an asset in the Balance Sheet when it is highly
 probable that future economic benefit associated with it will flow to
 the Company.
 Deferred tax is recognised on timing differences, being the differences
 between the taxable income and the accounting income that originate in
 one period and are capable of reversal in one or more subsequent
 periods.  Deferred tax is measured using the tax rates and the tax laws
 enacted or substantively enacted as at the reporting date. Deferred tax
 liabilities are recognised for all timing differences. Deferred tax
 assets are recognised for timing differences of items other than
 unabsorbed depreciation and carry forward losses only to the extent
 that reasonable certainty exists that sufficient future taxable income
 will be available against which these can be realised. However, if
 there are unabsorbed depreciation and carry forward of losses and items
 relating to capital losses, deferred tax assets are recognised only if
 there is virtual certainty supported by convincing evidence that there
 will be sufficient future taxable income available to realise the
 assets. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset if such items
 relate to taxes on income levied by the same governing tax laws and the
 Company has a legally enforceable right for such set off. Deferred tax
 assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date for their realisability.
 Revenue expenditure pertaining to research is charged to the Statement
 of Profit and Loss. Development costs of products are also charged to
 the Statement of Profit and Loss unless a product''s technical
 feasibility has been established, in which case such expenditure is
 capitalised. The amount capitalised comprises expenditure that can be
 directly attributed or allocated on a reasonable and consistent basis
 to creating, producing and making the asset ready for its intended use.
 Fixed assets utilised for research and development are capitalised and
 depreciated in accordance with the policies stated for Fixed Assets.
 The carrying values of assets / cash generating units at each balance
 sheet date are reviewed for impairment if any indication of impairment
 exists. The intangible assets are tested for impairment each financial
 year even if there is no indication that the asset is impaired.
 If the carrying amount of the assets exceed the estimated recoverable
 amount, an impairment is recognised for
 such excess amount. The impairment loss is recognised as an expense in
 the Statement of Profit and Loss, unless the asset is carried at
 revalued amount, in which case any impairment loss of the revalued
 asset is treated as a revaluation decrease to the extent a revaluation
 reserve is available for that asset.
 The recoverable amount is the greater of the net selling price and
 their value in use. Value in use is arrived at by discounting the
 future cash flows to their present value based on an appropriate
 discount factor.
 When there is indication that an impairment loss recognised for an
 asset (other than a revalued asset) in earlier accounting periods no
 longer exists or may have decreased, such reversal of impairment loss
 is recognised in the Statement of Profit and Loss, to the extent the
 amount was previously charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss. In
 case of revalued assets such reversal is not recognised.
 A provision is recognized when an enterprise has a present obligation
 as a result of past event, that can be estimated reliably 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 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 estimates. When no reliable estimate can be made, a
 disclosure is made as contingent liability and is disclosed by way of
 notes.  Contingent assets are not recognised in the financial
