estimated terms of the defined benefit obligation.

The Company's Provident Fund operates under exemption granted under Section 1 7( 1 )(a) of the Employees' Provident Funds and Miscellaneous
Provisions Act, 1952. Conditions for exemption stipulate that the employer shall make good deficiency, if any, in the interest rate declared by

expect any deficiency in the foreseeable future.

leases. Lease payments under operating leases are recognised as expenses on accrual basis in accordance with the respective lease
