 equivalents, the Company has ascertained its operating cycle as 12
 months for the purpose of current - non current classification of
 assets and liabilities.

 Company makes estimates and assumptions in conformity with the
 applicable accounting principles in India that affect the reported
 balances of assets and liabilities and disclosures relating to
 contingent assets and liabilities as at the date of the financial
 statements and reported amounts of income and expenses during the

 economic useful life of the assets ascertained by the Management which
 is greater than or less than or equal to the corresponding rates
 prescribed in Part C of Schedule II of the Companies Act, 2013 and
 accordingly the rates of depreciation are applied. Depreciation on
 additions and deletions during the year is calculated on pro-rata
 2.7 Impairment of 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 recoverable amount of such assets is estimated and
 impairment is recognised, if the carrying amount of these assets exceeds
 their recoverable amount. 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 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.
 2.8 Inventories
 Inventories are valued at the lower of cost (on FIFO / weighted average
 basis) and the net realisable value after providing for obsolescence
 and other losses, where considered necessary. Cost includes all charges
 in bringing the goods to the point of sale, including Octroi and other
 levies, transit insurance and receiving charges.
 Work-in-progress and finished goods include appropriate proportion of
 overheads and, where applicable, excise duty

 paid in exchange for the services rendered by employees are recognised
 during the year when the employees render the service. These benefits

 which the employee renders the related service. The cost of such
 compensated absences is accounted as under :(a) in case of accumulated
 compensated absences, when employees render the services that increase
 their entitlement of future compensated absences; and (b) in case of
 non-accumulating compensated absences, when the absences occur.
 Long-term employee benefits
 Compensated absences which are not expected to occur within twelve
 months after the end of the period in which the employee renders the

 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 Tangible Fixed
 Assets and Intangible Assets.
 2.14 Taxes on Income
 Current tax is the amount of tax payable on the taxable income for the
 year as determined in accordance with the provisions of the Income Tax
 Act, 1961. and based on expected outcome of the assessment.
 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 substantially enacted as at the reporting date.
 Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all timing differences.
 Deferred tax assets in respect of unabsorbed depreciation and carry
 forward of losses are recognised only if there is virtual certainty
 that there will be sufficient future taxable income available to
 realise such assets. Deferred tax assets are recognised for timing
 differences of other items only to the extent that reasonable certainty
 exists that sufficient future taxable income will be available against
 which these can be realised.
 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 reliability.

 based on the best estimate required to settle the obligation at the
 Balance Sheet date. These are reviewed at each Balance Sheet date and
