The financial statements of the Company for the year ended March 31, 2018 were approved and adopted by the board of directors of the Company in their meeting dated May 10, 2018.

2. Significant Accounting Policies and Key Accounting Estimates and Judgments

2.1 Basis of preparation

a) Statement of Compliance

The financial statements (on standalone basis) of the Company have been prepared in accordance with Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS) notified under Section 133 of Companies Act, 2013 (‘the Act’) read with the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, 2015 as amended by the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, 2016 and also the subsequent amendments which were notified during the year and applicable to the period. The Company has consistently applied the accounting policies used in the preparation of its financial statements.

b) Functional and presentation currency

Items included in the financial statements of the Company are measured using the currency of the primary economic environment in which the entity operates (‘the functional currency’). The financial statements are prepared in INR which is the functional and presentation currency. All amounts are rounded to the nearest lakhs.

c) Basis of measurement

The financial statements have been prepared under historical cost convention on accrual basis except for the following:

i) Certain financial assets and financial liabilities measured at fair value (refer accounting policy regarding financial instruments - Note no. 3.10)

ii) Defined benefit plans measured at fair value

2.2 Use of significant accounting estimates, judgments and assumptions

The preparation of the financial statements requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported balances of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent liabilities as on the date of financial statements and reported amounts of income and expenses during the period. Uncertainty about these assumptions and estimates could result in outcomes that require a material adjustment to the carrying amount of assets or liabilities affected in future periods.

The key assumptions concerning the future and other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the reporting date, that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year, are described below. The Company based its assumptions and estimates on parameters available when the financial statements were prepared. Existing circumstances and assumptions about future developments, however, may change due to market changes or circumstances arising that are beyond the control of the Company. Such changes are reflected in the assumptions when they occur.

a) Estimated useful lives and scrap value (Property, plant & equipment, Investment properties and Intangible assets)

The Company has estimated the useful life, residual value and method of depreciation / amortisation of property, plant & equipment, investment properties and intangible assets based on its internal technical assessment. Property, plant & equipment, investment properties and intangible assets represent a significant proportion of the asset base of the Company. Further the Company has estimated that scrap value of property, plant & equipment would be able to cover the decommissioning costs of property, plant & equipment.

Therefore, the estimates and assumptions made to determine useful life, residual value, method of depreciation / amortisation and decommissioning costs are critical to the Company’s financial position and performance.

b) Impairment of financial assets (including trade receivable)

Allowance for doubtful receivables represent the estimate of losses that could arise due to inability of the customer to make payments when due. These estimates are based on the customer ageing, customer category, specific credit circumstances and the historical experience of the Company as forward looking estimates at the end of each reporting period.

c) Estimation of defined benefit obligations

The liabilities of the Company arising from employee benefit obligations and the related current service cost, are determined on an actuarial basis using various assumptions as disclosed in notes forming integral part of consolidated financial statements.

d) Estimation of provisions and contingencies

Provisions are liabilities of uncertain amount or timing recognised where a legal or constructive obligation exists at the balance sheet date, as a result of a past event, where the amount of the obligation can be reliably estimated and where the outflow of economic benefit is probable. Contingent liabilities are possible obligations that may arise from past event whose existence will be confirmed only by the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain future events which are not fully within the control of the Company. The Company exercises judgment and estimates in recognizing the provisions and assessing the exposure to contingent liabilities relating to pending litigations. Judgment is necessary in assessing the likelihood of the success of the pending claim and to quantify the possible range of financial settlement. Due to this inherent uncertainty in the evaluation process, actual losses may be different from originally estimated provision.

19. Financial Risk Management

The Company is exposed to market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. The management reviews and agrees policies for managing each of these risks which are summarized below:

Market risk

Market risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices. Market risk comprises three types of risk: foreign currency risk, interest rate risk and other price risks. Financial instruments affected by market risk primarily include trade receivables, trade payables, cash and cash equivalents.

The sensitivity analysis in the following sections relates to the position for the periods presented. The sensitivity analysis has been prepared on the basis that the amount of net debt and the proportion of financial instruments in foreign currencies are all constant. The analysis excludes the impact of movements in market variables on the carrying values of gratuity obligation and provisions.

The sensitivity of the relevant profit and loss item is the effect of the assumed changes in respective market risks based on the financial assets and financial liabilities held at the periods presented.

Interest rate risk

The following tables demonstrate the sensitivity to a reasonably possible change in interest rate, with all other variables held constant. The impact on the Company’s profit before tax is due to changes in the fair value of monetary assets and liabilities.

Foreign currency risk

Foreign currency risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of an exposure will fluctuate because of changes in foreign exchange rates. The Company’s exposure to the risk of changes in foreign exchange rates relates primarily to trade payables, trade receivables.

Foreign currency sensitivity

The following tables demonstrate the sensitivity to a reasonably possible change in USD, with all other variables held constant. The impact on the Company’s profit before tax is due to changes in the fair value of monetary assets and liabilities.

Price risk

The Company is not exposed to any significant price risk.

Credit risk

Credit risk is the risk that counterparty will not meet its obligations under a financial instrument or customer contract, leading to a financial loss. The Company is exposed to credit risk from its operating activities, primarily for trade receivables and deposits with banks and other financial assets.

Trade receivables

Customer credit risk is managed based on the Company’s established policy, procedures and control relating to customer credit risk management. The Company evaluates the concentration of risk with respect to trade receivables as low. Out of total trade receivables balance as at 31st March, 2018 Rs.2,703 Lakh (Previous year: Rs.702 Lakh) is due from a single US-based customer being the Company’s largest customer for which the Company has discounted bills with no recourse terms. There are no other customers who represent more than 10% of the balance of trade receivables. Outstanding customer receivables are regularly monitored by the management.

An impairment analysis is performed at each reporting date on an individual basis for major customers. The maximum exposure to credit risk at the reporting date is the carrying value of each class of financial assets. The Company does not hold collateral as security.

Deposits with banks and other financial assets

Credit risk from balances with banks and financial institutions is managed by the Company’s treasury department in accordance with the Company’s policy.

Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company may not be able to meet its present and future cash and collateral obligations without incurring unacceptable losses. The Company’s objective is to, at all times maintain an optimum level of liquidity to meet its cash and collateral requirements. The Company closely monitors its liquidity position and deploys a robust cash management system.
