The Company provides for gratuity for employees in India as per the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. Employees who are in continuous service for a period of 5 years are eligible for gratuity. The amount of gratuity payable on retirement/termination is the employees last drawn basic salary per month computed proportionately for 15 days salary multiplied for the number of years of service.

(ii) Pension Benefits


The Company operates defined benefit pension plans which provide benefits to some of its employees in the form of a guaranteed level of pension payable for certain year after retirement.

The sensitivity analyses above have been determined based on reasonably possible changes of the respective assumptions occurring at the end of the reporting period and may not be representative of the actual change. It is based on a change in the key assumption while holding all other assumptions constant. When calculating the sensitivity to the assumption, the method (Projected Unit Credit Method) used to calculate the liability recognized in the balance sheet has been applied. The methods and types of assumptions used in preparing the sensitivity analysis did not change compared with the previous period.


**In case of certain employees, the Provident Fund contribution is made to a trust administered by the Company. In terms of the guidance note issued by the institute of Actuaries of India, the actuary has provided a valuation of Provident Fund liability based on the assumptions listed above and determined that there is no shortfall as at 31st March, 2017.


# takes into account the inflation, seniority, promotions and other relevant factors.


Risk Exposure - Asset Volatility


The plan liabilities are calculated using a discount rate set with reference to bond yields; if plan assets underperform this yield, this will create a deficit. Most of the plan asset investments is in fixed income securities with high grades and in government securities. These are subject to interest rate risk and the fund manages interest rate risk derivatives to minimize risk to an acceptable level. A portion of the funds are invested in equity securities and in alternative investments % which have low correlation with equity securities. The equity securities are expected to earn a return in excess of the discount rate and contribute to the plan deficit.


(iii) Leave obligations


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


The amount of the provision of Rs, 2543.17 lakhs (31st March, 2016 - Rs,2423.99 lakhs, 1 April 2015 - Rs, 2535.52 lakhs) is presented as current, since the Company does not have an unconditional right to defer settlement for any of these obligations

Note :- 3 - FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT Financial Instrument by category and hierarchy


The fair values of the financial 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 a 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 institutions approximate their carrying amounts largely due to 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 account for expected losses of these receivables. Accordingly, fair value of such instruments is not materially different from their carrying amounts.


The fair values for loans, security deposits and investment in preference shares were calculated based on cash flows discounted using a current lending rate. They are classified as level 3 fair values in the fair value hierarchy due to the inclusion of unobservable inputs including counter party credit risk.


The fair values of non-current borrowings are based on discounted cash flows using a current borrowing rate. They are classified as level 3 fair values in the fair value hierarchy due to the use of unobservable inputs, including own credit risk.


For financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value, the carriying amounts are equal to the fair values.


*Company has invested in HDFC India Real Estate Fund and Kotak India Growth Fund and these funds have been further invested into various companies. Company has considered the fair value on the basis of the valuation report provided by venture capital fund.


Note :- 4 - FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT 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. The Company''''s financial risk management policy is set by the Managing Board.


Market risk is the risk of loss of future earnings, fair values or future cash flows that may result from a change in the price of a financial instrument. The value of a financial instrument may 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 treasury department, which evaluates and exercises independent control over the entire process of market risk management. The treasury department recommend risk management objectives and policies, which are approved by Senior Management and the Audit Committee. The activities of this department include management of cash resources, implementing hedging strategies for foreign currency exposures like foreign exchange forward contracts, borrowing strategies and ensuring compliance with market risk limits and policies.


Market Risk- Interest rate risk


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 Company''''s position with regards to interest income and interest expenses and to manage the interest rate risk,


Market Risk- Foreign currency risk.


The Company operates internationally and portion of the business is transacted in several currencies and consequently the Company is exposed to foreign exchange risk through its sales and services in overseas and purchases from overseas suppliers in various foreign currencies. Foreign currency exchange rate exposure is partly balanced by purchasing of goods, commodities and services in the respective currencies.


(a) (iii) Market Risk- Price Risk


(a) Exposure


The Company''''s exposure to equity securities price risk arises from investments held by the Company and classified in the balance sheet either at fair value through OCI or at fair value through profit and loss. To manage its price risk arising from investments in equity securities, the Company diversifies its portfolio. Diversification of the portfolio is done in accordance with the limits set by the Company.


(b) Sensitivity


The table below summarizes the impact of increases/decreases of the BSE index on the Company''''s equity and Gain/Loss for the period. The analysis is based on the assumption that the index has increased by 5 % or decreased by 5 % with all other variables held constant, and that all the Company''''s equity instruments moved in line with the index.


Note :- 5 - FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT (Contd...)


Credit risk


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 counterparty,


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


iv) Significant increase in credit risk on other financial instruments of the same counterparty,


v) Significant changes in the value of the collateral supporting the obligation or in the quality of the third-party guarantees or credit enhancements.


Financial assists are written off when there is no reasonable expectations of recovery, such as a debtor failing to engage in a repayment plan with the Company. Where loans or receivables have been written off, the Company continues to engage in enforcement activity to attempt to recover the receivable due. Where recoveries are made, these are recognized as income in the statement of profit and loss.


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.


Note :- 6 - FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT (Contd...)


Liquidity Risk


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 (comprising the undrawn borrowing facilities below) and cash and cash equivalents on the basis of expected cash flows.


Note :- 7 - CAPITAL RISK MANAGEMENT


(a) Risk Management


The Company aim to manages its capital efficiently so as to safeguard its ability to continue as a going concern and to optimize returns to our shareholders.


The capital structure of the Company is based on management''''s judgment of the appropriate balance of key elements in order to meet its strategic and day-to-day needs. We consider the amount of capital in proportion to risk and manage the capital structure in light of changes in economic conditions and the risk characteristics of the underlying assets. In order to maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Company may adjust the amount of dividends paid to shareholders, return capital to shareholders or issue new shares.


The Company''''s policy is to maintain a stable and strong capital structure with a focus on total equity so as to maintain investor, creditors and market confidence and to sustain future development and growth of its business. The Company will take appropriate steps in order to maintain, or if necessary adjust, its capital structure.
