Leave Obligations

The lease obligations cover the Company liability for earned leaves. The amount of provision ofRs,36,997,539 (31st March 2016Rs,33,023,982 1st April 2015Rs,28,158,097) is presented as current, since the Company does not have an unconditional right to defer settlement for any of these obligations. However based on past experience, the Company does not expect all employees to take the full amount of accrued leave or require payment within the next 12 months, therefore based on the independent actuarial report, only a certain amount of provision has been presented as current and remaining as non-current. The following amounts reflect leave that is not expected to be taken or paid within the next 12 months.

These assumptions were developed by management with the assistance of independent actuarial appraisers. Discount factors are determined close to each year-end by reference to government bonds of relevant economic markets and that have terms to maturity approximating to the terms of the related obligation. Other assumptions are based on management''''s historical experience.

For the funded plan the group makes contributions to recognized funds in India. The Company does not fully fund the liability and maintains a target level of funding to be maintained over a period of time based on estimations of expected gratuity payments.

Accordingly, amortization on leasehold land has also been charged amounting to Rs, 30.07 lakh as on 1st April 2015 and Rs, 2.32 lakhs in the FY 2015 -16.

The above has resulted in a net impact of Rs, 30.07 lakh as on 1st April 2015 and Rs, 32.39 lakhs as on 31st March 2016 in equity. Further, this has resulted an impact of Rs, 2.32 lakhs in the net profit for the FY 2015 -16.

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. In addition, the various transitional adjustments lead to temporary differences. According to the accounting policies, the Company has to account for such differences. Deferred tax adjustments are recognized in correlation to the underlying transaction either in retained earnings or a separate component of equity.
