3. Significant accounting judgements, estimates and assumptions

The preparation of the financial statements requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities, and the accompanying disclosures, and the disclosure of contingent liabilities. 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.

There are no significant areas involving a high degree of judgement or complexity.

Estimates and assumptions

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.

Defined benefit plans

The cost of defined benefit gratuity plan and its present value of the obligation are determined using actuarial valuations. An actuarial valuation involves making various assumptions that may differ from actual developments in the future. These include the determination of the discount rate, future salary increases and mortality rates. Due to the complexities involved in the valuation and its long-term nature, an employee benefit obligation is highly sensitive to changes in these assumptions particularly the discount rate and estimate of future salary increase. All assumptions are reviewed at each reporting date.

The parameter most subject to change is the discount rate. In determining the appropriate discount rate for plans operated in India, the management considers the interest rates of government bonds.

The mortality rate is based on publicly available mortality tables. Those mortality tables tend to change only at interval in response to demographic changes. Future salary increases are based on expected future inflation rates.

Further details about gratuity obligations are given in Note 32.

Share-based payments

The cost of equity-settled transactions is determined by the fair value at the date when the grant is made using the most appropriate valuation model, which is dependent on the terms and conditions of the grant. This estimate also requires determination of the most appropriate inputs to the valuation model including the expected life of the share option, volatility and dividend yield and making assumptions about them. The assumptions and models used for estimating fair value for share-based payment transactions are disclosed in Note 33.

4. Gratuity and other post-employment benefit plans

The Company has a defined benefit gratuity plan. The gratuity plan is governed by The Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. Under the act, employee who has completed five years of service is entitled to specific benefit. The scheme is funded with an insurance company in the form of qualifying insurance policy.

The following tables summarise the components of net benefit expense recognised in the Statement of Profit and Loss and the funded status and amounts recognised in the balance sheet for the plan.

The estimates of future salary increases, considered in actuarial valuation, take account of inflation, seniority, promotion and other relevant factors, such as supply and demand in the employment market.

The overall expected rate of return on assets is determined based on the market prices prevailing on that date, applicable to the period over which the obligation is to be settled.

5. Employee stock option scheme

The Company provides share-based payment schemes to its employees. The Company had formulated an employee stock option scheme, namely Employee Stock Option Scheme 2015 (ESOP) during the year ended 31st March, 2015 for grant of ESOP. The relevant details of the scheme and grant are as below:

On 8th May 2015, the Board of Directors approved the Employee Stock Option Scheme 2015 for issue of stock options to the key employees of the Company. According to the scheme, the employee selected by the remuneration committee from time to time will be entitled to options, subject to satisfaction of the prescribed vesting conditions viz, continuing employment on the rolls of the Company as on 1st April 2015 as well as new employees who replaces the old eligible employee and joins the employment of the Company before 30th June 2017 and continuing employment till grant date. The other relevant terms of the grant are as below:

Vesting Period 40% vest after 3 years

60% vest after 4 years Exercise Period 4 Years

Expected Life 5.6 Years

Exercise Price (Rs.) 135

Market price as on 4th August, 2015 (Rs.) 183.25

The weighted average remaining contractual life for the stock options outstanding as at 31st March, 2018 is 2.93 years (31st March, 2017 3.93 years).

The weighted average fair value of the stock options granted was RS.105.64. The Black Scholes valuation model has been used for computing the weighted average fair value considering the following inputs:

The expected life of the stock is based on current expectations and is not necessarily indicative of exercise patterns that may occur. The expected volatility reflects the assumption that the historical volatility over a period similar to the life of the options is indicative of future trends, which may also not necessarily be the actual outcome.

6. Leases

Operating lease: Company as lessee

Certain office premises, equipments, depots etc are obtained by the Company on operating lease. The lease term is for 1-3 years and renewable for further period either mutually or at the option of the Company. Lease agreements have price escalation clauses. The rent is not based on any contingencies. There are no restrictions imposed by lease arrangements. The leases are cancelable.

7. Capital and other commitments

Estimated amount of contracts remaining to be executed on Capital Account and not provided for (net of advances) RS.9,630.18 lacs (31st March, 2017: RS.765.44 lacs).

Based on discussions with the solicitors/ favorable decisions in similar cases/legal opinions taken by the Company, the management believes that the Company has a good chance of success in above-mentioned cases and hence, no provision there against is considered necessary. The timing of outflow of resources in not ascertainable.

* Matter settled in favour.

Related party transactions

The details of related parties transactions entered into by the Company for the year ended 31st March, 2018 and 31st March, 2017, and the details of amounts due to or due from related parties as at 31st March, 2018 and 31st March, 2017:

8. Remuneration paid to Managing Director & CEO of the Company during the financial year ended 31st March, 2017 had exceeded the limit prescribed under Section 197 read with Schedule V of the Companies Act, 2013 by RS.444.99 lacs. The Company had applied to Central Government for waiver of such excess remuneration.

Based on a letter received from Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India, in response to the Company’s application for waiver of aforesaid excess remuneration, the Company is of the view that since the Managing Director & CEO is working in the professional capacity, no Central Government approval is required in terms of amended provisions of Schedule V of the Companies Act, 2013.

9. The management has considered that the Company has a single reportable segment based on nature of products, production process, regulatory environment, customers and distribution methods.

Further, the Company is engaged in single product line of manufacturing and selling cement and its customers and noncurrent assets are located in India only.

10. Financial risk management objectives and policies

The Company’s financial liabilities comprise loans and borrowings, security deposits, and trade and other payables. The main purpose of these financial liabilities is to finance the Company’s operations. The Company’s financial assets include trade and other receivables, cash and cash equivalents.

The Company is exposed to market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. The Company has a Risk management policy and its management is supported by a Risk management committee that advises on risks and the appropriate financial risk governance framework for the Company. The Risk management committee provides assurance to the Company’s management that the Company’s risk activities are governed by appropriate policies and procedures and that financial risks are identified, measured and managed in accordance with the Company’s policies and risk objectives. The Board of Directors reviews and agrees policies for managing each of these risks, which are summarised 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: currency risk, interest rate risk and other price risk, such as commodity price risk and equity price risk. Financial instruments affected by market risk include trade payables, trade receivables, borrowings, etc.

Interest rate risk

The Company’s exposure to the risk of changes in market interest rates relates primarily to the Company’s debt obligations with floating interest rates.

Interest rate sensitivity

The following table demonstrates the sensitivity to a reasonably possible change in interest rates on that portion of loans and borrowings. With all other variables held constant, the Company’s profit before tax is affected through the impact on floating rate borrowings, as follows.

Foreign currency risk

The Company’s exposure to the risk of changes in foreign exchange rates is not significant.

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 trade receivables).

Trade receivables

Customer credit risk is managed by the respective department subject to Company’s established policy, procedures and control relating to customer credit risk management. Credit quality of a customer is assessed based on individual credit limits as defined by the Company. Outstanding customer receivables are regularly monitored.

An impairment analysis is performed at each reporting date on an individual basis. The calculation is based on historical data of credit losses.

The ageing analysis of the receivables (net of provision) has been considered from the date the invoice falls due.

Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is defined as the risk that the Company will not be able to settle or meet its obligations or at a reasonable price. The Company’s treasury department is responsible for liquidity, funding as well as settlement management. In addition, processes and policies related to such risks are overseen by senior management. Management monitors the Company’s net liquidity position through rolling forecasts on the basis of expected cash flows.

The Company’s objective is to maintain a balance between continuity of funding and flexibility through the use of cash credits, bank loans among others.

Maturity profile of Financial liabilities

The table below provides details regarding the remaining contractual maturities of financial liabilities at the reporting date based on contractual undiscounted payments.

* including future interest of RS.75,601.92 lacs (31st March, 2017: RS.90,561.48 lacs)

11. Capital management

For the purpose of the Company’s capital management, capital includes issued equity capital and all other equity reserves attributable to the equity holders. The primary objective of the Company’s capital management is to maximise the shareholder value.

The Company manages its capital structure and makes adjustments in light of changes in economic conditions and the requirements of the financial covenants. To maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Company may adjust the dividend payment to shareholders, return capital to shareholders and issue new shares. The Company monitors capital using a gearing ratio, which is net debt divided by total capital plus net debt. The Company’s policy is to keep the gearing ratio between 0.50 to 0.55. The Company includes within net debt, interest bearing loans and borrowings, less cash and cash equivalents.

12. Standards issued but not effective

The amendments to standards that are issued, but not yet effective, up to the date of issuance of the Company’s financial statements are disclosed below. The Company intends to adopt these standards, if applicable, when they become effective.

The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has issued the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Amendment Rules, 2017 and Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Amendment Rules, 2018 amending the following standard:

Ind AS 115 Revenue from Contracts with Customers

The Company is currently evaluating the impact of implementation of Ind AS 115 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” which is applicable to it w.e.f April 01, 2018. However, based on the evaluation done so far and based on the arrangement that the Company has with its customers for sale of its products, the implementation of Ind AS 115 will not have any significant recognition and measurement impact. However, there will be additional presentation and disclosure requirement which will be provided in the next year’s financial statements.

Amendments to Ind AS 12 Recognition of Deferred Tax Assets for Unrealised Losses

The amendments clarify that an entity needs to consider whether tax law restricts the sources of taxable profits against which it may make deductions on the reversal of that deductible temporary difference. Furthermore, the amendments provide guidance on how an entity should determine future taxable profits and explain the circumstances in which taxable profit may include the recovery of some assets for more than their carrying amount.

These amendments are effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 April 2018. These amendments are not expected to have any impact on the Company as the Company has no deductible temporary differences or assets that are in the scope of the amendments.

Appendix B to Ind AS 21 Foreign Currency Transactions and Advance Consideration

The Appendix clarifies that, in determining the spot exchange rate to use on initial recognition of the related asset, expense or income (or part of it) on the derecognition of a non-monetary asset or non-monetary liability relating to advance consideration, the date of the transaction is the date on which an entity initially recognises the non-monetary asset or non-monetary liability arising from the advance consideration. If there are multiple payments or receipts in advance, then the entity must determine the transaction date for each payment or receipt of advance consideration.

The Appendix is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 April 2018. However, since the Company’s current practice is in line with the Interpretation, the Company does not expect any effect on its financial statements.

Amendments to Ind AS 112 Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities, Ind AS 40 Investment Property and Ind AS 28 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures are not applicable to the Company.

13. Fair Value

The fair value of the financial assets and liabilities approximates their carrying amounts as at the balance sheet date.
