Vesting period is 1 to 5 years. Each option carries the right to the holder to apply for one equity share of the company at par. There has been no variation in the terms of options during the year. The share options are valued at the fair value of the options as on the date of grant using Black Scholes pricing model. There is no cash settlement alternative.

5. Financial Instruments - Accounting classifications and fair value measurements

The fair value of the assets and liabilities are included at the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in forced or liquidation sale.

The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair values:

1. Fair Value of cash and short-term deposits, trade and other short term receivables, trade payables, other current liabilities, short term loans from banks and other financial instruments approximate their carrying amounts largely due to the short term maturities of these instruments.

2. Financial instruments with fixed and variable interest rates are evaluated by the company based on parameters such as interest rates and individual credit worthiness of the counterparty. Based on this evaluation, allowances are taken to the account for the expected losses of these receivables.

The company uses the following hierarchy for determining and disclosing the fair value of financial instruments by valuation technique:

Level 1: quoted (unadjusted) prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities

Level 2: other techniques for which all inputs which have a significant effect on the recorded fair value are observable, either directly or indirectly

Level 3: techniques which use inputs that have a significant effect on the recorded fair value that are not based on observable market data

Note: During the reporting period ended March 31, 2017 and March 31, 2016, there were no transfers between level 1 and level 2 fair value measurements.

53. Financial Risk Management Objectives and Policies

The Company''''s financial risk management is an integral part of how to plan and execute its business strategies.

Market risk

Market risk is the risk of loss of future earnings, fair value or future cash flows arising out of change in the price of a financial instrument. These include change as a result of changes in the interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates, equity prices and other market changes that affect market risk sensitive instruments. Market risk is attributable to all market risk sensitive financial instruments including investments and deposits, foreign currency receivables, payables and loans and borrowings.

The company manages market risk through a risk management committee engaged in, inter alia, evaluation and identification of risk factors with the object of governing/mitigating them according to Company''''s objectives and declared policies in specific context of impact thereof on various segments of financial instruments. The Board provides oversight and reviews the Risk management policy on a quarterly basis.

Interest rate risk

Interest rate risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates. In order to balance the Company''''s position with regards to interest income and interest expense and to manage the interest rate risk, treasury performs a comprehensive interest rate risk management.

The company is not exposed to significant interest rate risk as at the respective reporting dates.

Foreign currency risk

The Company operates internationally with transactions entered into several currencies. Consequently the Company is exposed to foreign exchange risk towards honoring of export/ import commitments.

Management evaluates exchange rate exposure in this connection in terms if its established risk management policies which includes the use of derivatives like foreign exchange forward contracts to hedge risk of exposure in foreign currency.

Credit risk

Credit risk arises from the possibility that counter party may not be able to settle their obligations as agreed. To manage this, the company periodically assesses the financial reliability of customers, taking into account the financial condition, current economic trends, and analysis of historical bad debts and ageing of account receivables. Individual risk limits are set accordingly.

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 throughout each reporting period. To assess whether there is a significant increase in credit risk the company compares the risk of default occurring on the asset as at the reporting date with the risk of default as at the date of initial recognition. The company considers reasonable and supportive forward-looking information.

Financial assets are written off when there is no reasonable expectation of recovery, such as debtor failing to engage in a repayment plan with the company. The company provides for overdue outstanding for more than 90 days other than institutional customers which are evaluated on a case to case basis.

The Company''''s concentration of risk with respect to trade receivables is low, as its customer''''s base is widely spread across the length and breadth of the country.
