(iii) Other commitment

The Company has obtained licenses under the Export Promotion Credit Guarantee (''''EPCG'''') Scheme for importing capital goods at a concessional rate of custom duty against submission of bank guarantee and bonds.

Under the terms of the respective schemes, the Company is required to earn foreign exchange value equivalent to, eight times and in certain cases six times of the duty saved in respect of licenses where export obligation has been fixed by the order of the Director General Foreign Trade, Ministry of Finance, as applicable within a specified period from the date of import of capital goods. The Export Promotion Capital Goods Schemes, Foreign Trade Policy 2009-2014 as issued by the Central Government of India, covers both manufacturer''''s exports and service providers. Accordingly, in accordance with the Chapter 5 of Foreign Trade Policy 2009-2014, the Company is required to export goods of FOB value of Rs, 3,675.66 Lakhs (Previous Year : Rs, 4,495.99 Lakhs). Non fulfillment of the balance of such future obligation, if any entails to the Government to recover full duty saved amount and other penalties under the above referred scheme.


Brief description of the Plans:

The Company has various schemes for employee benefits such as Provident Fund, ESIC, Gratuity and Leave Encashment. The Company''''s defined contribution plans are Provident Fund (in case of certain employees) and Employees State Insurance Fund (under the provisions of the Employees'''' Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952). The Company has no further obligation beyond making the contributions to such plans.

A Defined Benefits Plans

The Company''''s defined benefit plans include Gratuity (Unfunded). The gratuity plan is governed by the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 under which an employee who has completed five years of service is entitled to specific benefits. The level of benefits provided depends on the member''''s length of service and salary at retirement age.

The current service cost and the net interest expenses for the year are included in the ''''Employee benefits expenses'''' line item in the statement of profit & loss account.

iii. Expenses Recognized in the Other comprehensive income (Oci)

The remeasurement of the net defined benefit liability is included in other comprehensive income.

The Plan typically to expose the Company to actuarial risk such as Interest Risk, Longevity Risk and Salary Risk

a) Interest Risk:- A decrease in the bond interest rate will increase the plan liability.

b) Longevity Risk: The present value of the defined benefit plan liability is calculated by reference to the best estimate of the mortality of plan participants both during and after their employment. An increase in the life expectancy of the plan participants will increase the plan''''s liability.

c) Salary Risk: The present value of the defined plan liability is calculated by reference to the future salaries of plan participants. As such, an increase in the salary of the plan''''s participants will increase the plan''''s liability.

The above sensitivity analyses are based on change in an assumption while holding all other assumptions constant. In practice, this is unlikely to occur, and changes in some of the assumptions may be correlated. When calculating the sensitivity of the defined benefit obligation to significant actuarial assumptions the same method (present value of the defined benefit obligation calculated with the projected unit credit method at the end of the reporting period) has been applied as when calculating the defined benefit liability recognized in the balance sheet.

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.

B. Defined contribution plans

The Company also has certain defined contribution plans. The contributions are made to registered provident fund, Employee State Insurance Corporation and Labour Welfare Fund administered by the government. The obligation of the Company is limited to the amount contributed and it has no further contractual nor any constructive obligation. The expense recognized during the period towards defined contribution plans are as follows:

c. Leave obligations

The leave obligations cover the Company''''s liability for earned leave.

The amount of the provision of Rs, 42.21 Lakhs (31st March, 2016 Rs, 92.14 Lakhs, 1st April 2015 Rs, 80.38 Lakhs) is presented as current, since the Company does not have an unconditional right to defer settlement for any of these obligations.

Credit risk arises from the possibility that the counter party may not be able to settle their obligations as agreed. To manage this, the Company periodically assesses financial reliability of customers and other counter parties, taking into account the financial condition, current economic trends, and analysis of historical bad debts and ageing of financial assets. Individual risk limits are set and periodically reviewed on the basis of such information.

The Company considers the probability of default upon initial recognition of asset and whether there has been a significant increase in credit risk on an ongoing basis through each reporting period. To assess whether there is a significant increase in credit risk the Company compares the risk of default occurring on asset as at the reporting date with the risk of default as at the date of initial recognition. It considers reasonable and supportive forwarding-looking information such as:

i) Actual or expected significant adverse changes in business,

ii) Actual or expected significant changes in the operating results of the counter party,

iii) Financial or economic conditions that are expected to cause a significant change to the counter party''''s ability to meet its obligations,

The Company measures the expected credit loss of trade receivables and loan from individual customers based on historical trend, industry practices and the business environment in which the entity operates. Loss rates are based on actual credit loss experience and past trends. Based on the historical data, loss on collection of receivable is not material hence no additional provision considered.

Trade receivables:

The ageing of trade receivables and expected credit loss analysis on these trade receivables is given in below table:


a) The Company manages its capital to ensure that it will be able to continue as going concern while maximizing the return to stakeholders through the optimization of the debt and equity balance. The capital structure of the Company consists of net debt (borrowings as detailed in Note no. 18, 20 and 22 offset by cash and cash equivalents) and total equity of the Company.

The Company determines the amount of capital required on the basis of annual as well as long term operating plans and other strategic investment plans. The funding requirements are met through long-term and short-term borrowings. The Company monitors the capital structure on the basis of net debt to equity ratio and maturity profile of the overall debt portfolio of the Company.


Prudent liquidity risk management implies maintaining sufficient cash and marketable securities and the availability of funding through an adequate amount of committed credit facilities to meet obligations when due and to close out market positions. Due to the dynamic nature of the underlying businesses, Company treasury maintains flexibility in funding by maintaining availability under committed credit lines. Management monitors rolling forecasts of the Company''''s liquidity position and cash and cash equivalents on the basis of expected cash flows.

*Excluding Rs, 94.15 Lakhs as prepaid finance charges.


Interest rate risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of the financial instruments will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates. In order to optimize the Group''''s position with regards to interest income and interest expenses and to manage the interest rate risk, treasury performs a comprehensive corporate interest rate risk management by balancing the proportion of fixed rate and floating rate financial instruments in its total portfolio.

The sensitivity analyses below have been determined based on the exposure to interest rates for assets and liabilities at the end of the reporting period. For floating rate assets and liabilities, the analysis is prepared assuming the amount of the liability outstanding at the end of the reporting period was outstanding for the whole year and the rates are reset as per the applicable reset dates. The basis risk between various benchmarks used to reset the floating rate assets and liabilities has been considered to be insignificant.

If interest rates had been 100 basis points higher/lower and all other variables were held constant, the Company''''s Profit for the year would decrease/increase by amount as stated below.

This is mainly attributable to the Company''''s exposure to borrowings at floating interest rates.


The Company is exposed to equity price risks arising from equity investments. Certain of the Company''''s equity investments are held for strategic rather than trading purposes.

Equity price sensitivity analysis:

The sensitivity analysis below have been determined based on the exposure to equity price risks at the end of the reporting period.
