The Company is predominantly in to construction / erection business, where, the operating cycle depends upon the completion of the project, which is generally beyond twelve months. However, the Company has considered its operating cycle as twelve months for the purpose of current, non-current classification of assets and liabilities. Where as per the specific terms of the contract, the amounts are due beyond twelve months, the classification of assets and liabilities in to current and non- current is made accordingly.

1.2 Fixed Assets and Depreciation :

(i) Fixed Assets :

Fixed Assets are stated at cost of acquisition / book value less accumulated depreciation / amortization. Costs include all expenses incurred to bring the assets to its present location and condition.

(ii) Depreciation / Amortization :

(a) Depreciation is provided on Straight Line Method, in accordance with Schedule II to the Act. The useful lives of the assets for computing depreciation are as per Schedule II of the Act.

(b) Cost of Intangibles capitalized is amortized over their useful life.

(c) Cost of ERP Software capitalized is amortized over a period of five years.

(d) Depreciation / Amortization on additions or on sale/ discard of assets is provided on pro-rata basis from the date of such addition or up to the date of such sale / discard as the case may be. Depreciation on the assets purchased during the year is provided on the basis of individual useful life of the asset, which can vary with the useful lives prescribed in Schedule II of the Act.

1.3 Investments :

Investments are classified into current and non-current investments. All non-current investments are stated at cost. Diminution, if any, in the value of investments, other than temporary, is provided for each investment individually. Current investments are stated at lower of cost & market value / net realizable value.

1.4 Inventories :

(i) Stores and Spares :

Stores and Spares are valued at cost or net realizable value whichever is lower, computed on weighted average basis. Cost comprises of all costs of purchase and other costs incurred in bringing the inventories to its present location and condition.

(ii) Incomplete Contract Works under Contract Work-in-Progress :

“Incomplete Contract Works” are valued by the direct cost method. The direct cost is determined for each contract separately by considering all direct costs specifically attributable to each contract. However, where the outcome of the contract, based on percentage completion method is ascertained reliably after taking into account all future costs, and revenues, proportionate profit attributable to each contract is considered. The concept of valuation of “Incomplete Contract Works” under “Contract Work-in-Progress” arises only after the stage when direct costs under each contract are not carried forward any further as “Accumulated Direct Costs” as contemplated in policy 1.6(iii) below.

1.5 Amortization of Facilities at Customers’ site :

All facilities in the nature of assets created at the customers’ site and which are to be abandoned at the end of the each contract are written off / amortized in equal monthly installments over the period commencing from the month of completion of the individual facility up to the contracted month for completion of the contract plus twelve months. Billable reimbursements against such facilities, if separately identified in a contract, are similarly credited in equal annual installments against the write-offs over the said period.

1.6 Revenue Recognition :

Engineering construction business :

(i) Income by way of revenue arising out of execution of contract work (including supply of materials), is credited as “Income” only after at least 5% / 10% / 15% (depending upon each contract value) of the total estimated contract costs (i.e. direct and indirect costs) in respect of each contract are incurred (on accrual basis). Such revenue is recognized, as the contract progresses, by reference to the stage of completion of each contract and the invoices acknowledged by the customer’s authorized representative. Procurement of goods and materials, prior to commencement of the contract activity, is not considered as a progress in the contract activity and hence, no revenue is recognized, although, value of such goods and materials procured, exceeds 5% / 10% / 15% of the estimated contract costs.

(ii) The Company follows the “Percentage of Completion Method” of accounting for execution of contract work. The revenue from the execution of contracts is recognized proportionately with the degree of completion achieved under each contract, matching revenue with expenses incurred and therefore, the invoices raised for claiming periodic payments from customers are not accounted as income and the “Trade Receivables / Advances received against Contracts” are reflected accordingly.

Claims made on account of variation in contract work and extension of time, both, are recognized as revenue only when and to the extent of the acceptance of the claim and or variation by the customers.

(iii) Direct costs i.e. all costs related to contracts, which are accounted on accrual basis, are charged to revenue in respect of each contract undertaken, only after at least 5% /10% / 15% of the total estimated all direct and indirect contract costs in respect of each contract are incurred. Till such time, all such direct costs accounted in respect of each contract are carried forward to the next accounting year as “Accumulated Direct Costs” under “Contract Work-in-Progress”. Indirect costs are treated as expenses for the year in which they are incurred on accrual method of accounting and charged to revenue.
