(a) Fixed Assets:

In view of revival plans of the Company as referred to in Note 29, in the opinion of the management, the carrying value of the Fixed Assets of the Company are not lower than their recoverable amounts and hence, no provision for impairment of Fixed Assets is called for.

(b) Capital work-in-progress as at the year-end of Rs. 4,420,700,536 /- includes :

(i) Borrowing cost (net) capitalized or transferred to capital work-in-progress Rs. NIL (Previous year Rs. 565,205,200)

(ii) Pre-operative expenses of Rs. 1,313,245,060/- (Previous Year - Rs. 1,313,245,060/-). Details of Pre-operative expenses capitalized/transferred to Capital Work-in-Progress includes:-

(iii) The Company has discontinued its earlier practice of charging borrowing costs as attributable to Projects and pre-operative expenses incurred in connection therewith as was done in the earlier years on account of its decision to putting on hold of the incurrence of expenditure in relation to the project work in progress/projects.

(iv) During the year, the Company has put on hold further capital expenditure and incurrence of other expenses in connection therewith due to non-optimum utilization of the existing capacity as also non-availability of funds for incurring the balance expenditure. The management expects that in near future, the company shall be able to tie up business agreements as also the required funds which will enable it to complete the Project Work- in- Progress.

7. Unamortised Expenditure

Ancillary costs incurred in connection with the arrangement of borrowings were amortized over the tenure of borrowings till previous year. This year, the Company has written off Rs. 252,205,039/- in respect of the same to the Statement of Profit and Loss as the said costs are "period costs". If the Company had continued its earlier practice, the charge for the current year in respect of the same would have been lower by Rs. 214,602,226/- and the loss for the year lower by Rs. 214,602,226/-.

8. Investments

(i) The Company holds strategic and long term investments in its subsidiary companies, the aggregate cost of which is Rs. 834.60 crores as on 31st March, 2014. The present "net asset value" of the said investments are lower than their costs of acquisition. However, keeping in view that the said investments are long-term and strategic in nature as also the said subsidiaries are in the process of implementing their respective Revival Plans alongwith the future business plans of the Company, the Management is of the view that the diminution in value of its investments is temporary in nature and no provision for diminution in value is called for.

(ii) The Company has reversed the provision of Rs.5,00,000/-, made in earlier year for fall in the value of its investments in Arshiya Transport and Handling Limited in view of the Revival Plans of the investee company as also proposed scheme of amalgamation of that company with two other fellow subsidiaries viz. Arshiya Northern FTWZ Limited and Arshiya Industrial & Distribution Hub Limited.

9. Provision for Loan

The Company has reversed the provision made for doubtful recovery of loan of Rs. 9.95 Crores granted to its subsidiary, Arshiya Transport and Handling Limited, made in the earlier year as the management expects to recover the same in near future in view of its revival plans and its proposed amalgamation with the fellow subsidiaries Arshiya Northern FTWZ Limited and Arshiya Industrial & Distribution Hub Limited.

10. Mark to Market Losses

(i) This year, the Company has changed its accounting policy of capitalising / deferring its Reserve for Mark to Market Losses (MTM) on its derivatives (for conversion of rupee loan liability into foreign loan) as done hereto before following announcement by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India on "Accounting for Derivatives" by charging MTM losses relating to earlier years in the Statement of Profit & Loss. Due to the said change, an amount of Rs. 393.08 lacs from tangible assets (net of depreciation) and Rs.85.60 Lacs from Foreign Currency Translation Reserve Account have been charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss for the year, which have been shown as "Exceptional Item".

(ii) Further, during the year, an amount of Rs. 3,231.14 lacs in respect of MTM losses upon determination of fair market value of derivatives entered into by the Company has been charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss. The Company is of the view that MTM loss has to be worked out taking into account the spot exchange rate(s) on the reporting date as it is committed to continue derivative contracts till their maturity and hence, applying the fair market values presuming that the derivative contracts would be cancelled on the reporting date, shall not reflect the correct financial position. However, the Banks who have entered into derivative contracts with the Company have, intimated that the loss on account of MTM is Rs. 7,088.73 lacs as upto 31st March, 2014 as against the amount of Rs. 3,391.57 lacs determined as per the Company's view.

(iii) If the Company had continued to follow the policy of deferring the write off of MTM losses, the charge for the year would have been lower by Rs. 3,134.32 lacs.

11. Interest from Subsidiaries

In the earlier year, the Company charged interest amounting to Rs. 220,751,518/- in respect of loans given to its subsidiary companies. In the current year, in view of management's decision to treat such loans as "quasi equity in terms of the requirements of the Corporate Debts Restructuring Scheme sanctioned by the Secured Lenders (Banks) no interest has been charged to its subsidiaries in respect of said loans. Such Interest chargeable to the subsidiaries for the current year has not been ascertained.

12. Proceedings against Company

Certain lenders and creditors have filed winding up petitions/ cases / other legal proceedings for recovery of the amounts due to them which are at different stages before the respective judicial forums / authorities. Claims by the said lenders and creditors have been contested by the Company in those proceedings and not acknowledged as debts. It is not possible at this juncture to estimate the financial implications of such claims.

13. Scheme of Amalgamation of Arshiya FTWZ Limited and Arshiya Domestic Distripark Limited

The Scheme of Amalgamation of Arshiya FTWZ Limited and Arshiya Domestic Distripark Limited with the Company became effective from 4th January, 2013.

15. Maharashtra VAT Refund Receivable

As per the notification dated 16th May, 2013, issued by the government of Maharashtra, MVAT exemption/refund is available to SEZ Developer after 15th October, 2011. (Record date). However, the Company has claimed refund of Rs. 17.43 crores in respect of transactions prior to record date. The Company is of the view that the state government has exempted it from local taxes, levies and duties on goods required for authorized operations by a Developer vide GR dated 12th October, 2001 passed by Industries, Energy and Labour Department, Government of Maharashtra. Accordingly, these financial statements reflect a sum of Rs.17.43 crores as refund receivable on account of Maharashtra VAT. In case the refund is not granted, the necessary adjustment entries shall be recorded in the year in which finality is reached.

16. Taxation

(i) In view of loss for the year as calculated as per the provisions of the Income Tax Act, 1961 (The "Act"), no provision for taxation has been made.
