In addition processing fees and transaction cost relating to each loan has also been considered for calculating effective interest rate.

* The carrying amounts are considered to be the same as their fair values due to short term nature.

Fair value hierarchy

Level 1 - Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2 - Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (i.e. as prices) or indirectly (i.e. derived from prices).

Level 3 - Inputs for the assets or liabilities that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs).

3. Financial risk factors

The Company''''s operational activities expose to various financial risks i.e. market risk, credit risk and risk of liquidity. The Company realizes that risks are inherent and integral aspect of any business. The primary focus is to foresee the unpredictability of financial markets and seek to minimize potential adverse effects on its financial performance. The primary market risk to the Company is foreign exchange risk & interest rate risk. The Company calculates and compares the alternative sources of funding by including cost of currency cover also. Whenever, the currency cover costs are such as to neutralize the advantage in foreign currency, loans are hedged so as to not to lose advantage. The Company uses derivative financial instruments to reduce foreign exchange risk exposures.

i. Credit Risk

The Company evaluates the customer credentials carefully from trade sources before appointment of any distributor and only financially sound parties are appointed as distributors. The Company secures adequate deposits from its distributor and hence risk of bad debt is limited. The credit outstanding is sought to be limited to the sum of advances/deposits and credit limit determined by the company. The company have stop supply mechanism in place in case outstanding goes beyond agreed limits.

ii. Market risk

Market risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of fluctuation in market prices. These comprise three types of risk i.e. currency rate , interest rate and other price related risks. Financial instruments affected by market risk include loans and borrowings, deposits, investments, and derivative financial instruments. Foreign currency risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in foreign exchange rates. 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. Regular interaction with bankers, intermediaries and the market participants help us to mitigate such risk.

a.) Foreign Currency Risk and sensitivity

The primary market risk to the Company is foreign exchange risk. The Company uses derivative financial instruments to reduce foreign exchange risk exposures and follows its risk management policies to mitigate the same. After taking cognisance of the natural hedge, the company takes appropriate hedges to mitigate its risk resulting from fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rate(s).

b. Interest Rate Risk and Sensitivity

The Company''''s exposure to the risk of changes in market interest rates relates primarily to long term debt. The Company has entered into various interest rate swap contracts, in which it agrees to exchange, at specific intervals, the difference between fixed and variable interest amounts calculated by reference to an agreed upon principal amount. Borrowings at variable rates expose the Company to cash flow interest rate risk. With all other variables held constant, the following table demonstrates composition of fixed and floating rate borrowing of the company and impact of floating rate borrowings on company''''s profitability.

c. Commodity price risk and sensitivity

The Company is exposed to the movement in price of key raw materials in domestic and international markets. The Company has in place policies to manage exposure to fluctuations in the prices of the key raw materials used in operations. The Company manages fluctuations in raw material price through hedging in the form of advance procurement when the prices are perceived to be low and also enters into advance buying contracts as strategic sourcing initiative in order to keep raw material and prices under check cost of material hedged to the extent possible.


Credit risk refers to the risk of default on its obligation by the counterparty resulting in a financial loss. The maximum exposure to the credit risk at the reporting date is primarily from trade receivables amounting to H110.81 Crore and H139.18 Crore as of March 31, 2017 and March 31, 2016, respectively. Trade receivables are typically unsecured and are derived from revenue earned from customers primarily located in India. Credit risk has always been managed by the company through credit approvals, establishing credit limits and continuously monitoring the creditworthiness of customers to which the Company grants credit terms in the normal course of business. On account of adoption of Ind AS 109, the company uses expected credit loss model to assess the impairment loss or gain. The Company uses a provision matrix to compute the expected credit loss allowance for trade receivables. The provision matrix takes into account as per the Company''''s historical experience for customers.

Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk arises when the Company will not be able to meet its present and future cash and collateral obligations. The risk management action focuses on the unpredictability of financial markets and tries to minimise adverse effects. The Company uses derivative financial instruments to hedge risk exposures. Risk management is carried out by the Finance department under Forex Policies as adopted and duly approved by the Board. The Company''''s approach is to ensure, as far as possible, that it will have sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities when due and company monitors rolling forecasts of its liquidity requirements.

4. Competition and Price risk

The Company faces competition from local and foreign competitors. Nevertheless, it believes that it has competitive advantage in terms of high quality products and by continuously upgrading its expertise and range of products to meet the needs of its customers.

5. Capital Risk Management

The Company''''s policy is to maintain an adequate capital base so as to maintain creditor and market confidence and to sustain future development. Capital includes issued capital, share premium and all other equity reserves attributable to equity holders. In order to strengthen the capital base, the company may use appropriate means to enhance or reduce capital, as the case may be.

Note - 6. Derivative Financial Instruments

The Company holds derivative financial instruments such as foreign currency forward contracts to mitigate the risk of changes in exchange rates on foreign currency exposures. The counterparty for these contracts is generally a bank or a financial institution. These derivative financial instruments are valued based on quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are directly or indirectly observable in the marketplace.

*Net of Receivables USD 1.22 Million - H7.93 Crore (Previous year USD 3.10 Million - H20.55 Crore) and GBP 0.02 Million - H0.14 Crore (Previous year GBP Nil - HNil).

Note - 53 Impairment Review

Assets are tested for impairment whenever there are any internal or external indicators of impairment. Impairment test is performed at the level of each Cash Generating Unit (''''CGU'''') or groups of CGUs within the Company at which the assets are monitored for internal management purposes, within an operating segment. The impairment assessment is based on higher of value in use and value from sale calculations. During the year, the testing did not result in any impairment in the carrying amount of other assets. The measurement of the cash generating units'''' value in use is determined based on financial plans that have been used by management for internal purposes.

i) Fair Value as deemed cost - Property Plant and Equipment (PPE)

The Company has opted the option of fair value as deemed cost for the Property Plant and Equipment as on the date of transition to Ind AS. This has resulted in increase of H310.06 Cr in the value of the Property Plant and Equipment with corresponding increase in retained earnings of H310.06 Cr and deferred tax liability of H68.47 Cr .

C. Financial instruments

1 Derivative financial instruments

Under Indian GAAP, derivative contracts are restated at each balance sheet date to the extent of any reduction in value is recognised in Statement of Profit and Loss. A gain on valuation is only recognised by the Company if it represents the subsequent reversal of an earlier loss. Also under IGAAP premium on forward contract is amortised over the contract period and value was calculated excluding the premium.

Under Ind AS, both reductions and increases to the fair values of derivative contracts are recognised in profit & loss. Premium is not separately accounted and amortised.

2 Financial assets and financial liabilities measured at amortized cost

Under the previous GAAP, security deposits (that are refundable in cash on completion of the lease term) are recorded at their transaction value.Under Ind AS 109-Financial Instruments, security deposits are required to be valued at fair value and difference between cost and fair value is to be amortised over the period of security as rental expenses and consequently interest income is to be booked at Effective Interest method in Profit and Loss Account

3 Cost of borrowing

Borrowing designated and carried at amortised cost are accounted on EIR method. The upfront fee or cost of borrowing incurred is deferred and accounted on EIR basis. Borrowings are shown as net of unamortised amount of upfront fee incurred.

D. Proposed Dividend

Under Indian GAAP, proposed dividends are recognised as liability in the period to which they relate irrespective of the approval by shareholders. Under Ind AS a proposed dividend is recognised as liability in the period in which it is declared (on approval of shareholders in a general meeting) or paid. Therefore the proposed dividend and dividend distribution tax for the F.Y. 2015-16 has been derecognised and recognised during 2016-17 on payment.

E. Deferred Tax

i) Indian GAAP requires deferred tax accounting using the income statement approach, which focuses on differences between taxable profits and accounting profits for the period. Ind AS 12 requires entities to account for deferred taxes using the balance sheet approach, which focuses on temporary differences between the carrying amount of an asset or liability in the balance sheet and its tax base. The application of Ind AS 12 approach has resulted in recognition of deferred tax on new temporary differences, which was not required under Indian GAAP

ii) In addition, the various transitional adjustments lead to different temporary differences resulting in recognition of deferred tax. Such deferred tax asset has been recognized in retained earnings.

iii) Deferred Tax liability recognised on fair valuation of PPE as on transition date has been reversed to the extent of assets sold during the year.

F. Fair Valuation of Financial Assets

i) Fair Valuation has been done for Loan given at lower rate of interest. Difference between loan amount and Fair value is recognised as interest income and Employee Cost expense as per Effective Interest Method in Profit and Loss Account.

ii) Mutual Funds has been fair valued through Profit and Loss (FVTPL)

G. Arrangement containing the lease

H. Excise Duty

Paragraph 8 of Ind AS 18, Revenue states that ''''Revenue includes only the gross inflows of economic benefits received and receivable by the entity on its own account. Amounts collected on behalf of third parties such as sales taxes, goods and services taxes and value added taxes are not having any economic benefits which flow to the entity and do not result in increases in equity. Therefore, they are excluded from revenue and shown separately.

I. Remeasurements of post-employment benefit obligations

Under Ind AS, remeasurements i.e. actuarial gains and losses and the return on plan assets, excluding amounts included in the net interest expense on the net defined benefit liability are recognised in other comprehensive income instead of profit or loss. Under the previous GAAP, these remeasurements were forming part of the profit or loss for the year.
