Notes to Accounts Year End : Mar '15
1. The Company is having a system of sending letters to the Debtors for
 confirming the balance as at the year end 31st March. However the
 balances of debtors, creditors, loans and advances (other than
 Telecommunications Consultants India Limited (TCIL)) are subject to
 2 a.  No provision is made for one long pending debtor Rs. 33,950,521
 (previous year Rs. 33,950,521) in view of the arbitration proceeding
 completed against the Purchaser for which the Award is received in
 favour of the Company but has since been challenged by the Purchaser in
 the court. Further the court remitted back the case to the Arbitrator
 for speaking orders which also has been awarded in favour of the
 Company after arguments, cross examinations and written submissions,
 during the year. The purchaser has again appealed in the Court.
 b. No provision is made for Rs. 1,339,656 (previous year Rs. 1,339,656)
 due from RailTel which was under arbitration.  In the Arbitration
 award, six claims were in favour of the Company and one against the
 Company. Company has appealed against the award in Delhi High Court and
 the proceedings are in progress.
 3. After restructuring as per the Sanctioned Scheme of BIFR during
 2010-11, the net worth of the Company was positive during 2010-11.
 However during the year 2011-12 the net worth has again eroded. The
 Company is already under rehabilitation period as per the BIFR
 Sanctioned Scheme. Lack of executable orders and dull phase of Optical
 Fiber Cable (OFC) market from the year 2010-11 onwards is the reason
 for the poor performance. During the year 2012-13 the Company had
 received order from BSNL for supply of 3206 KMs of OFC valuing
 Rs.159,701,104 and successfully executed the order in time and got 50%
 add-on order of 1602 KMs and executed during 2013-14 valuing
 Rs.79,800,740.  These two were the only major orders executed during
 these two years. Bharat Broadband Network Limited (BBNL), the Special
 Purpose Vehicle of the Government, had floated the tender towards the
 National Optic Fiber Network (NOFN) project to connect all the villages
 by broad band. The date of tender opening was 08.05.2013. Though the
 initial projection was 600000 KMs, the tender called for is to cover
 404995 KMs under six packages based on geographical location. For this
 huge quantum, BBNL has fixed the delivery time frame of eight months
 only including initial two months for preliminary arrangements. The
 Company has participated in one package considering its production
 capacity to cover the quantum in the given short delivery period. The
 Company has received APO and given acceptance during February, 2014 for
 5800 KMs including accessories. The Value of the APO is Rs.
 3,190,44,437. BBNL has proposed to issue PO in two phases of 50% each.
 During April,2014, BBNL has issued the first 50% PO for 2900 KMs
 including accessories valuing Rs. 159,527,319. Delivery period was upto October, 2014. BBNL has issued the
consignee details in full 
 periodically for four months consignments of 1740 KMs only. 
 For fifth  month consignment, consigee details were
 provided for only 48 KMs out of 580 KMs. Hence consignee details are
 not provided for balance around 1112 KMs. BBNL has extended the
 delivery schedule by another six months beyond October,2014. Hence the
 supply of balance around 1112 KMs and second 50% PO for 2900 KMs may be
 anticipated during 2015-16 for execution.  The Company has participated
 in the tender floated by BSNL for supply of 24,000 KMs of 24F HDPE DS
 OFC. The technical bid opened and the company has been technically
 qualified. Financial bid opened on 21.5.2015 and is under evaluation,
 which will be followed by e- reverse auction. Company is hopeful of
 getting orders around 2500 KMs which is projected to be executed during
 2015- 16. The requirement of OFC in the country is huge; however the
 delay in procurement is due to various procedural matters / issues in
 execution of big projects by the Government Clients. The Company is
 hoping to get continuous orders from 2015-16 onwards regularly since
 the OFC market is picking up. The order booking position is expected to
 be continuously good. Considering the scope during the immediate future
 and TCIL''s continuous financial support, the accounts have been
 prepared on going concern basis.
 4 Land: The Company is in possession of free hold land from Chennai
 Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) and the Tamilnadu State
 Government measuring around 9.82 acres. In case of sale of CMDA land by
 the company it has to be first offered to CMDA at the same purchase
 price. The land can be sold to other third parties only after getting
 No Objection Certificate (NOC) from CMDA. In the case of Tamilnadu
 State Government land it is to be utilized for the purpose for which it
 is allotted and surplus land if any, has to be surrendered.

 Employee benefits as defined in the Accounting Standard are given

 Upto the year 2008-09 the Company has set up separate Trust for
 Provident Fund and has been contributing towards the same. In view of
 the fact that the Company is industrially sick as declared by BIFR and
 its net worth has fully eroded, the Provident Fund Commissioner-I has
 withdrawn with effect from 01.04.2009 the relaxation order issued under
 Para 79 of the Employees'' Provident Fund Scheme 1952, with a direction

 B) Defined Benefit Plan
 Gratuity (Un Funded) :
 The Company provides for gratuity, a defined benefit retirement plan
 (the Gratuity Plan) covering eligible employees.  The Gratuity Plan
 provides a lump sum payment to vested employees at retirement, death,
 incapacitation or termination of employment, of an amount based on the
 respective employee''s salary and the tenure of employment. Vesting
 occurs upon completion of five years of service. Liabilities with
 regard to the Gratuity Plan are determined by actuarial valuation as of
 the balance sheet date. The present value of obligation is determined
 based on actuarial valuation using the Projected Unit Credit Method.
 The following table set out the status of the gratuity plan as required
 under AS 15
 Note: The estimates of rate of escalation in salary considered in
 actuarial valuation, taken into account inflation, seniority, promotion
 and other relevant factors including supply and demand in the
 employment market. The above information is based on the valuation
 certified by the actuary.
 C) Leave encashmentThe employees of the Company are entitled to
 compensated absence. The employees can carry forward a portion of the
 unutilized accrued compensated absence and utilize it in future periods
 or receive cash compensation at retirement or termination of employment
 for the unutilized accrued compensated absence for a maximum of 240
 days. The Company records an obligation for compensated absences in the
 period in which the employee renders the services that increase this
 entitlement. The Company measures the expected cost of compensated
 absence as the additional amount that the Company expects to pay as a
 result of the unused entitlement that has accumulated at the balance
 sheet date based on actuarial valuations.

 current year loss and the accumulated losses of previous years

 the credit/charge for the deferred tax assets/liabilities. The excess
 of timing difference over the deferred tax liability has been ignored
 for want of reasonable certainty of the company making taxable income
 in the near future. Similarly, for the same reason, certain other
 provisions made in the earlier years have been ignored for creation of
 deferred tax asset. The accumulated losses and carried forward
 depreciation under the tax laws have been ignored for creating the
 deferred tax asset considering that there is no reasonable certainty of
 the company making taxable income in the future in terms of para 26 of
 The treatment noted above is in accordance with the Accounting Standard

 is called for during the year.
