6. Retained Earnings

Retained Earnings are the profits the Company has earned till date, less any transfer to General Reserve, dividends or other distributions paid to the shareholders. The reserve can be utilised in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act, 2013.

7. Other Comprehensive Income (Remeasurement of defined benefit plan)

Differences between the interest income on plan assets and the return actually achieved and any changes in the liabilities over the year due to changes in actuarial assumptions or experience adjustments within the plans, are recognised in ‘Other Comprehensive Income’ and subsequently not reclassified to the Statement of Profit and Loss.


The preparation of the Company's financial statements in conformity with Ind AS requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities, and the accompanying disclosures, and the disclosure of contingent liabilities. Uncertainty about these assumptions and estimates could result in outcomes that require a material adjustment to the carrying amount of assets or liabilities affected in future periods. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on historical experience and various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances existing when the financial statements were prepared. The estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revision to accounting estimates is recognised in the year in which the estimates are revised and in any future year affected.

In the process of applying the Company’s accounting policies, management has made the following judgements, estimates and assumptions, which have the most significant effect on the amounts recognised in the financial statements :

Provision for sales return and date expiry

The Company as per trade practice accepts returns from market which are primarily in the nature of expired or near expiry products. Provisions for such returns are estimated on the basis of historical experience, shelf life of the product and market conditions and are provided for accordingly. Also Refer Note 22.

Uncertainty over income tax treatment

The Company determines whether to consider each uncertain tax treatment separately or together with one or more other uncertain tax treatments and uses the approach that better predicts the resolution of the uncertainty. The Company applies significant judgement in identifying uncertainties over income tax treatments (Refer Note 36).

Determining the lease term of contracts

The Company determines the lease term as the non-cancellable term of the lease, together with any periods covered by an option to extend the lease if it is reasonably certain to be exercised, or any periods covered by an option to terminate the lease, if it is reasonably certain not to be exercised.

Leases - Estimating the incremental borrowing rate

The Company cannot readily determine the interest rate implicit in the lease, therefore, it uses its Incremental Borrowing Rate (IBR) to measure lease liabilities. IBR is the rate of interest that the Company would have to pay to borrow over a similar term, and with a similar security, the funds necessary to obtain an asset of a similar value to the right-of-use asset in a similar economic environment. The Company estimates the IBR using observable inputs i.e. bank borrowing interest rates on secured assets.

Useful lives of Property, plant and equipment

The Company reviews the useful life of Property, plant and equipment at the end of each reporting period. This reassessment may result in change in depreciation expense in future periods. Refer Note 2.3 (d) for management estimate of useful lives.

Defined benefit plans

The cost of the defined benefit gratuity plan and other post employment medical benefits are determined using actuarial valuations. An actuarial valuation involves making various assumptions that may differ from actual developments in the future. These include the determination of the discount rate, future salary increases and mortality rates. Due to the complexities involved in the valuation and its long term nature, a defined benefit obligation is highly sensitive to changes in these assumptions. All assumptions are reviewed at each reporting date.

The parameter most subject to change is the discount rate. In determining the appropriate discount rate, the management considers the interest rates of government bonds in currencies consistent with the currencies of the post employment benefit obligation.

The mortality rate is based on publicly available mortality tables. Those mortality tables tend to change only at interval in response to demographic changes. Future salary increase and gratuity increase are based on expected future inflation rates in the country.

Further details about gratuity and other post employment medical benefits obligations are given in Note 34.

Share based compensation to employees

The fair value of restricted stock units plan is measured at the date of grant using the Black Scholes option pricing model. The estimate also requires determination of the most appropriate inputs to the valuation model, including the volatility, dividend yield, risk free interest rates, expected life of share option etc., which are disclosed in the Note 35.

Fair value measurement of financial instruments

When the fair values of financial assets and financial liabilities recorded in the Balance Sheet cannot be measured based on quoted prices in active markets, their fair value is measured using appropriate valuation techniques. The inputs for these valuations are taken from observable sources where possible, but where this is not feasible, a degree of judgement is required in establishing fair values. Judgements include considerations of various inputs including liquidity risk, credit risk, volatility etc. Changes in assumptions/judgements about these factors could affect the reported fair value of financial instruments. Also Refer Note 39.

Provision for inventories

Provision is made in the financial statements for slow and non-moving items based on estimates regarding their usability. Further for finished goods and stock-in-trade, all inventories expiring within six months and not expected to be sold, have been fully provided for. Also Refer Note 8.

Impairment of trade receivables

For the purpose of measuring lifetime expected credit loss allowance of trade receivables, the Company has used a practical expedient as permitted under Ind AS 109. This expected credit loss allowance is computed based on a provision matrix which takes into account historical credit loss experience and adjusted for forward-looking information. Refer Note 9.

Impairment of other financial assets

The loss allowance for other financial assets are based on assumptions about risk of default. The Company uses judgments in making these assumptions based on its past history, existing market conditions and certainty of realisation. Also Refer Note 6 and 12.

(b) Defined Benefit Plans

i. Gratuity : (Included as part of contribution to provident and other funds in Note 27 - Employee benefits expense)

Gratuity is payable to all eligible employees of the Company on retirement, death, permanent disablement and resignation in terms of the provision of the Payment of Gratuity Act 1972, or Company's Scheme whichever is more beneficial. Benefits would be paid at the time of the separation based on employees' salary and tenure of employment with the Company.

ii. Post Retirement Medical Benefits (PRMB) : (Included as part of staff welfare expenses in Note 27 - Employee benefits expense)

Under this scheme, select group of senior employees and their spouse are covered for hospitalisation benefits after the employee has retired from the Company. The cover is available to these beneficiaries until they are alive. The Company has procured a group hospitalisation cover from an insurance Company for providing these benefits to these beneficiaries.

iii. Long Service Benefits (LSB) : (Included as part of salaries and wages in Note 27 - Employee benefits expense)

Under this scheme, long service benefits accrues to the employee, while in service and is payable upon completion of stipulated service with the Company.

b) Employees Restricted Stock Options Plan (Stocks of Abbott Laboratories, USA, being Ultimate Holding Company)

Abbott Laboratories, USA as part of the 'Long Term Incentive Program' has offered Restricted Stock Units (RSUs) to specified employees of its subsidiaries, whereby the employees covered by the plan are granted units. The units when vested, become shares of Abbott Laboratories, USA at a NIL Cost. The shares of Abbott Laboratories, USA are listed with the New York Stock Exchange, USA. The grants issued are vested in one third instalments over a three year period. Pursuant to Ind AS 102 'Share-based Payment', the fair value of the RSUs have been recorded by the Company. The fair value of the RSUs is estimated at the grant date using Black Scholes Option Pricing Model, taking into account the terms and conditions upon which such RSUs were granted.

Expected contribution to the defined benefit plan (Gratuity) for the next annual reporting period is ' 0.50 Crores (March 31, 2022 : ' 0.10 Crores)

The average duration of the defined benefit plan obligation at the end of the reporting period for Gratuity is 7.03 years (March 31, 2022 : 7.18 years) and for PRMB is 6.35 years (March 31, 2022 : 6.54 years).

Notes :

(i) The actuarial valuation of plan assets and the present value of the defined benefit obligation were carried out as at March 31, 2023. The present value of the defined benefit obligation and the related current service cost and past service cost, were measured using the Projected Unit Credit Method.

(ii) Discount rate is based on the prevailing market yields of Indian Government securities as at the Balance Sheet date for the estimated term of the obligations.

(iii) The salary escalation rate is arrived after taking into consideration the seniority, the promotion and other relevant factors, such as, demand and supply in employment market.


a) International Stock Ownership Plan (Stocks of Abbott Laboratories, USA, being Ultimate Holding Company)

The expected life of the RSUs is based on historical data and current expectations and is not necessarily indicative of exercise patterns that may occur. The expected volatility reflects the assumption that the historical volatility over a period similar to the life of the options is indicative of future trends, which may not necessarily be the actual outcome.

During the year, ' 4.94 Crores (March 31, 2022 : ' 4.64 Crores) withholding taxes has been deposited with tax authorities against exercised options.

Abbott Laboratories, USA has an 'Affiliate Employee Stock Purchase Plan' (employee share purchase plan) whereby specified employees of its subsidiaries have been given a right to purchase shares of Abbott Laboratories, USA. Every employee who opts for the scheme contributes, by way of payroll deductions, up to 10% of his cash remuneration (i.e. basic salary for officers and basic salary and dearness allowance for staff category) towards purchase of shares on a monthly basis over the purchase cycle of six months.

The maximum that an employee can contribute to the plan is USD 12,500 per purchase cycle or USD 25,000 per calendar year. At the end of the cycle, accumulated payroll deductions are used to purchase shares at a discounted price. The purchase price of the share is 85% of the lesser of fair market value either on the first or last day of the purchase cycle. The shares of Abbott Laboratories, USA are listed with the New York Stock Exchange, USA and are purchased on behalf of the employees at market price less discount, allocated to participants as of last day of the purchase cycle. The concession in the price of the shares is entirely borne by Abbott Laboratories, USA.

Claims against Company not acknowledged as debts

(i) In February 1996, the Government had made a tentative claim for a sum of ' 11.12 Crores to be paid into the Drugs Prices Equalisation Account (DPEA) on account of unintended benefit allegedly enjoyed by the Company during the period May 1, 1981 to August 25, 1987. This was contested by the Company and subsequently during the year ended November 30, 2005, a final demand was received for ' 3.47 Crores (including interest of ' 1.90 Crores upto March 31, 2004). The Company, being aggrieved of the said demand and based on legal advice obtained in this regard, contested the above final demand of '3.47 Crores and filed a writ petition before the Bombay High Court to restrain the government from recovering the said amount. The Bombay High Court has admitted the writ petition and granted stay of the recovery of the amount subject to the Company furnishing a bank guarantee in respect of the principal amount of ' 1.56 Crores. The said bank guarantee has been furnished. The Company however, out of abundant caution and based on its understanding of the facts and circumstances of the case provided for a sum of ' 1.31 Crores (March 31, 2022 : ' 1.27 Crores) including interest liability till date.

* Amount excludes certain unascertainable expense that may be disallowed.

It is not practicable for the Company to estimate the timings of cash outflows, if any, in respect of the above and other pending ligitations of the respective proceedings as it is determinable only on receipt of judgements/decisions pending with various forums/authorities.


The Managing Director of the Company takes decision in respect of allocation of resources and assesses the performance basis information provided by functional heads and are thus considered to be Chief Operating Decision Maker.

The Company operates under the principal business segment viz. "Pharmaceuticals". The Chief Operating Decision Maker (CODM) views and monitors the operating results of its single business segment for the purpose of making decisions about resource allocation and performance assessment. Also, sales of Company is substantially in domestic market. Accordingly, there are no separate reportable segments in accordance with the requirements of Ind AS 108 ‘Operating segment’ and hence, there are no additional disclosures to be provided other than those already provided in the financial statements. There are no individual customer contributing more than 10% of Company's total revenue.

The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair values :

Fair value of cash and bank balances, trade and other financial current assets, trade payables, other financial current liabilities approximate their carrying amounts largely due to the short-term maturities of these instruments. Methods and assumptions used to estimate the fair values are consistent with those used for the year ended March 31, 2023.

During the reporting period ending March 31, 2023 and March 31, 2022, there were no transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measurements.

The Company uses the following hierarchy for determining and disclosing the fair value of financial instruments by valuation technique :

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

Level 2 : Other techniques for which all inputs which have a significant effect on the recorded fair value are observable, either directly or indirectly

Level 3 : T echniques which use inputs that have a significant effect on the recorded fair value that are based on unobservable market data

The fair values of the foreign exchange forward contract has been determined using valuation techniques with adequate observable inputs. This model incorporate various inputs including the credit quality of counter parties and foreign exchange forward rates.

(ii) Foreign currency risk

Foreign currency risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of an exposure will fluctuate because of changes in foreign exchange rates and arises where transactions are done in foreign currency. It arises mainly where receivables and payables exist due to transactions entered in foreign currencies.

The Company evaluates exchange rate exposure arising from foreign currency transactions and follows established risk management policies including use of derivatives like foreign exchange forward contracts to hedge foreign currency risk. The Company does not enter into financial instrument transactions for trading or speculative purposes. Unhedged exposure at any point of time during the year is not material.


The Company's activities expose it to variety of financial risks namely market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. The Company has various financial assets such as deposits, trade and other receivables and cash and bank balances directly related to their business operations. The Company's principal financial liabilities comprise of trade and other payables.

The Company’s senior management’s focus is to foresee the unpredictability and minimize potential adverse effects on the Company's financial performance. The Company's overall risk management procedures to minimise the potential adverse effects of financial market on the Company's performance are as follows :

a) Market risk

Market risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices. Market risk comprises three types of risks namely interest rate risk, currency risk and other price risk, such as commodity risk. The Company is not exposed to other price risk whereas the exposure to currency risk and interest risk is given below :

Interest Rate sensitivity

The Company's investments are primarily in fixed rate interest bearing investments. Hence, the Company is not significantly exposed to interest rate risk.

b) Credit risk

Credit risk is the risk that counterparty will not meet its obligations under a financial instrument or customer contract, leading to a financial loss. Concentration of credit risk arises when counter parties are engaged in similar business activities or have similar economic features that would cause the ability to meet contractual obligations to be similarly affected by changes in economical, political or other conditions. Concentration of credit risk indicate the relative sensitivity of the Company's performance to developments affecting a particular industry.

Credit risk of Company arises principally from the trade debts, loans and advances, trade deposits, other receivables and balance with banks. The carrying amount of financial assets represents the maximum credit exposure. The maximum exposure to credit risk was ' 3,546.56 Crores as at March 31, 2023 (March 31, 2022 : ' 3,152.78 Crores). Customer credit risk is managed for each business unit subject to the Company’s established policy, procedures and control relating to customer credit risk management. Credit quality of a customer is assessed based on an extensive credit rating scorecard and individual credit limits are defined in accordance with this assessment. Further, significant sales of the Company are against advance payment/collection on delivery terms. Outstanding customer receivables are regularly monitored and any shipments to new overseas customers are generally covered by letters of credit or other forms of credit insurance. The management continuously monitors the credit exposure towards the customers and makes provision against those balances considered doubtful of recovery.

Refer Note 9 for ageing of trade receivables.

The management believes that no further provision is necessary in respect of trade receivables based on historical trends of these customers. Further, the Company's exposure to customers is diversified and no single customer has significant contribution to trade receivables balances.

The credit risk on liquid funds such as balances with banks in current and deposit accounts is limited because the counter parties are banks with reasonably high credit ratings.

Financial assets other than trade receivables and bank balances are not exposed to any material credit risk.

c) Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that Company will not be able to meet its financial obligations as they fall due. Liquidity risk arises because of the possibility that the Company could be required to pay its liabilities earlier than expected or encounters difficulty in raising funds to meet commitments associated with financial liabilities as they fall due. The Company's approach to managing liquidity is to ensure, as far as possible, that it will always have sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities when due. The Company manages liquidity risk by maintaining sufficient cash and bank balance and availability of funding through adequate amount of committed credit facilities.


For the purpose of the Company’s capital management, capital includes issued equity capital and all other equity reserves attributable to the equity holders of the Company. The primary objective of the Company’s capital management is to safeguard the Company's ability to remain as a going concern and maximise the shareholder value.

The Company manages its capital structure and makes adjustments in light of changes in economic conditions, annual operating plans and long-term and other strategic investment plans. 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 current capital structure of the Company is equity based with no financing through borrowings except through leasing. The Company is not subject to any externally imposed capital requirements.

No changes were made in the objectives, policies or processes for managing capital during the year ended March 31, 2023 and March 31, 2022.
