Defined Benefit Plans

The Company is having defined benefit plan namely gratuity for all qualifying employees of the company.

The liability for gratuity to employees as at the Balance sheet date is determined on the basis of actuarial valuation using Projected Unit Credit method. The amount is funded to a Gratuity fund administered by the trustees and managed by Life Insurance Corporation of India.

Remeasurement, comprising actuarial gain and losses and the return on plan assets (excluding net interest), is reflected immediately in the balance sheet with a charge or credit recognised in other comprehensive income in the period in which they occur.

Significant actuarial assumptions for the determination of the defined obligation are discount rate, expected salary increase and mortality. The sensitivity analyses above have been determined based on reasonably possible changes of the respective assumptions occurring at the end of the reporting period, while holding all other assumptions constant.

The sensitivity analysis presented above may not be representative of the actual changes in the defined benefit obligation as it is unlikely that the change in assumptions would occur in isolation of one another as some of the assumptions may be correlated.

Furthermore, in presenting the above sensitivity analysis, the present value of the defined benefit obligation has been calculated using the projected unit credit method at the end of the reporting period, which is the same as that applied in calculating the defined benefit obligation liability recognised in the balance sheet.

The weighted average duration of the defined benefit obligation is 10 years (March 31,2017:10 years)

The Company expects to make a contribution of Rs. 50 lakhs (as at March 31,2017: Rs.29.69 lakhs) to the defined benefit plans during the next financial year. The employee benefit obligations(net) have been included in current liabilities based on the expected contributions.
