9. Risk Management :

The company’s activities expose it to market risk, liquidity risk and credit risk. This note explains the sources of risk which the entity is exposed to and how the entity manages the risk:

a. Credit Risk: Credit Risk refers to the risk of default on its obligation by the counterparty resulting in a financial loss. Primarily exposure to the credit risk is from trade receivables amounting to ' 12,520.08 lakhs (previous year ' 14,870.25 lakhs) and unbilled revenue amounting to ' 438.24 lakhs (previous year ' 363.23 lakhs) which are typically unsecured. Credit risk is being managed by continuously monitoring the outstanding dues from the customers.

Further, most of the clients of the company are Government or

Government Undertakings; hence credit risk is bare minimum. Company has impaired, as a prudent measure, the trade receivables towards expected credit loss as per company accounting policy to the extent of ' 5,856.02 lakhs (previous year ' 5,080.43 lakhs). Keeping in view the nature of business expected credit loss is provided as per the policy on impairment of financial assets.

No significant credit risk on cash and bank balances amounting to ' 2,117.53 lakhs (previous year ' 2,326.93 lakhs) is expected as company parks surplus funds with Schedule Banks having good credit adequacy ratio and least NPA as determined by RBI and guidelines of the company. Company has parked its owned funds in fixed deposits of ' 21,050.15 lakhs (previous year ' 23,790.80 lakhs) with Schedule banks with negligible credit risks.

The Company has also provided House Building Loan, Vehicle Loan and Computer Loan to the employees amounting to ' 2.88 lakhs (previous year ' 2.89 lakhs), these loans are secured and the Company does not envisage any risk from the same in nearby future.

The Company has granted interest bearing loans to its subsidiaries amounting to ' 712.57 lakh (previous year ' 800.87 lakh).

b. Liquidity risk: Company's principal source of liquidity are "cash and bank balances" and the cash flow that is generated from the operations. The Company has no bank borrowings and is an unleveraged entity.

The Company has a working capital of ' 26,889.49 lakh (previous year

' 30,956.84 lakh) including cash and bank balances of ' 2,117.53 lakhs (previous year ' 2,326.93 lakhs). Fund flow statement and investment of surplus funds is also reported in the audit committee meetings held from time to time.

Company believes that the working capital is sufficient to meet its requirements and to discharge its

liabilities towards trade payables and other current liabilities as and when they fall due, accordingly no liquidity risk is being perceived by the Company.

c. Market Risk:

• Interest rate risk: The company is exposed to interest rate risk to the extent of its investments in fixed deposits with banks. The company also invested in preference share capital of its subsidiary company Utkal Ashok Hotel Corporation limited (unit is nonoperative since 31.03.2004).

• Foreign currency risk: The Company has duty free shops at major sea ports in India. The foreign currency is being collected against the sale proceeds from customers at these shops. The duty free goods for the same are purchased centrally for these shops. The exchange rates between the rupee and foreign currencies have fluctuated substantially in recent years and may also fluctuate substantially in the near future. However the Company has a currency risk monitoring policy in place wherein the risk is managed by advanced planning for payment for purchases in foreign currency on due date by holding back the foreign currency sale proceeds in bank keeping in view the credit period/ payment date of purchases.

The above foreign currency exposure is unhedged as these are covered through foreign currency risk management policy.

d. Capital Management:

The Company’s capital management objectives are : - to ensure the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern - to provide an adequate return to shareholders

The Company monitors capital on the basis of the carrying amount of equity less cash and cash equivalents as presented on the face of balance sheet. Management assesses the Company’s capital requirements in order to maintain an efficient overall financing structure while avoiding excessive leverage. The Company manages the capital

structure and makes adjustments to it in the 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, issue new shares, or sell assets to avoid debt.

10. COVID-19 pandemic

The World Health Organization declared the Covid-19 outbreak as a pandemic on 11th March 2020, leading to series of measures by countries across the world to contain the spread of the virus. India responded by imposing a nationwide-lockdown on March 24, 2020. The process of lifting of lockdown in various states has since started in phases, effective June 1, 2020, guided by the decision of individual states. Permission for re-opening of Hotels has been given, w.e.f, August 21, 2020 by the State Government of Delhi.

During the period March 2020 to August 2020 there were no operational activity in hotel, flight & cargo operations, duty free shops, event management, hospitality institute etc., which affected business at our hotels and others operations across India.

During this Covid period, ITDC provided 1,800 food packets per day (approx.) to Delhi Administration, AIIMS and other hospitals under CSR activity amounting to ' 63.27 Lakhs. ITDC also provided accommodation facility to guests during the month of May 2020 and June 2020 under Vande Bharat Scheme as per the Government guidelines and generated revenue amounting to ' 18.70 Lakhs.

Contributing in the fight towards this pandemic, ITDC has provided support through our Hotel premises being used as quarantine facility at Hotel Kalinga Ashok since the inception of lockdown. Also, Hotel Samrat, New Delhi has also been offering 50 rooms for the purpose of quarantine facility.

During the major part of this period, hotel, flight & cargo operations, duty free shops, event management, hospitality institute were mandated to remain non-operational, which affected business at our hotels and other operations across India.

The Management's priority in dealing with the exceptional challenges posed by COVID-19 has

been to ensure the safety of its guests and employees, support suppliers, keep the supply chain operational for essential supplies.

In developing the assumptions relating to the possible future uncertainties in the global economic conditions because of this pandemic, the Management has considered the impact from a prolonged lock-down situation; travel restrictions being continued to be imposed by India and other countries even after lifting of the lockdown, guests postponing their discretionary spending, continued restrictions on the number of domestic and international flights, internal and external information available up to the date of approval of these financial statements including credit reports and economic forecasts.

The Management has also assessed the potential impact of Covid-19 on the carrying value of property, plant & equipment, intangible assets, investments, trade receivables, inventories, and other current assets appearing in the financial statements of the Company as on 31st March, 2021 and has performed sensitivity analysis on the assumptions used and based on current indicators of future economic conditions, expects to recover the carrying amounts of these assets. The impact of COVID-19 may be different from that estimated on the date of approval of these financial statements and the Management will continue to closely monitor any material changes to future economic conditions.

With respect to business in financial year 2021-22, the start has been difficult due to the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic in India. The impact on revenue from various business verticals could also come from a prolonged lock-down situation; travel restrictions being continued to be imposed by Government of India and other countries even after lifting of the lockdown and guests postponing their discretionary spending.

Based on enquiries received, assessments performed and analysis of market trends, the Management expects demand to gradually pick for Domestic leisure and business travel, social events within prescribed norms, and limited international travel once international airlines are allowed to commence operations.

11. Private Licencees of Hotel and Catering Units of ITDC, i.e., Hotel Ashok (New Delhi), Hotel Samrat (New Delhi) and Taj Restaurant (Agra) had made request for waiver of licence fees for the lockdown period.

Keeping in mind the business scenario and considering the impact on cash flow, bills were not generated against most of the Private Licensees amounting to ' 1,292.59 lakh upto September, 2020 and hence, not considered in the Financial Results.

12. Turnover of ITDC Unit - Hyderabad House (Catering Unit)

In case of ITDC Unit - Hyderabad House (Catering Unit), turnover was being shown to the extent of supervision charges received over and above the cost of material supplied and service rendered.

Regrouping have been made during the corresponding previous year. However, there will be no impact on the profitability of the Unit/ Company.

13. In case of Loans&Advances and Management Fees due to be received from Susbidiary Companies, company has reviewed its accounting practice and has accounted for the Interest and Management Fees for the period starting from April 1, 2016, i.e. date of transition to Ind AS Financial Statement upto March 31, 2020.

18. Pursuant to a decision of the Government of India, it was decided that the Ministry of Tourism will examine the proposal for Sale/ Lease of Hotel Properties of the Company including Properties of Subsidiary Companies. In the cases where Hotel properties are located on State Govt. Leased Land and the State is reluctant to extend the lease and allow it to be sub-leased to the private party, then the property may be offered to the State Govt. at its officially valued price. According to this decision the process of disinvestment is carried on as under:

a. HotelJanpath:

Ministry of Tourism (MoT) communicated vide their letter dtd. June 14, 2017 the in-principle approval of the government for transferring the property of Hotel Janpath to the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) and for compensating ITDC for loss of business opportunity with disputed liability to be sorted out. The ministry had proposed that “a tentative valuation of the business of ITDC has been calculated on the basis of Discounted Cash Flow assuming cash flows for 30 years on the basis of average net profit for 5 years and discount factor of 11% p.a. and a rough estimation was made for ' 5,772.00 Lakh (net profit depreciation). Value of land is not being considered.

Subsequently it was decided by the government to close the operations of Janpath Hotel, New Delhi and to handover the land & building of Janpath Hotel to L&DO, MoHUA (erstwhile MoUD). Accordingly, the Land & Building was technically handed over to L&DO, MoHUA on October 31, 2017.

The matter was also discussed inter alia in 26th & 27th Inter Ministerial Group (IMG) meetings as under: - In the 26th meeting of IMG dated 04.12.2017, it was deliberated that earlier the figure of ' 5,772.00 lakh was mentioned on the basis of calculation of NPV at a discounting factor of 11% on average profit before depreciation of last 5 years as per the audited annual accounts of 2011-12 to 2015-16 of Hotel Janpath for a period of 30 years without applying any growth rate. Therefore, IMG decided that compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of last 10 years i.e. from 2006-07 to 2015-16 of profit before depreciation may be applied on above said average profit of last 5 years before depreciation. IMG directed that ITDC may get the valuation done on this basis and obtain approval through circulation for the same.

In minutes of the 27th meeting of IMG held on 27-12-2017 it was recorded that “The valuation of loss of business opportunity of Hotel Janpath was decided by the IMG in its meeting held on 04-12-2017. In this regard, DIPAM vide its letter dated 21-12-2017 has submitted that under the DCF methodology for calculation of NPV, Profit After Tax (PAT) is what is normally considered."

The Company requested the Ministry to convey the amount of compensation to be considered by ITDC in its Financial Statement. The working of the amount of compensation based on PBT as well as PAT was also communicated to MoT. The amount of compensation based on PAT was ' 14,981.00 lakh and on PBT was ' 19,303.00 lakh.

In response to the above letter, the Ministry conveyed that the amount of '5,772.00 lakh was only an estimated figure and did not take into account the

liabilities which are yet to be firmed up. Further, the amount incurred towards VRS of employees due to closure of Janpath Hotel is to be kept under recoverables to be adjusted from the value when the same is finalised. The estimated compensation amount due to ITDC on account of loss of business opportunity in respect of Hotel Janpath, New Delhi, may therefore not be taken into account while finalising accounts of ITDC for the current financial year 201718 and may be included in the accounts for the financial year 2018-19.

The compensation for Loss of Business Opportunity was calculated on the basis of the IMG decision taken in its meeting dated 04.12.2017 and placed before the IMG in its meeting held on 4.2.2019.

“The IMG observed that the valuation based upon compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of last 10 years i.e. from 2006-07 to 2015-16 of average profit (before depreciation) of last five years which comes to ' 193.03 crores is also on higher side. It was suggested to also have the option of calculating the valuation based upon compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of last 30 years’ profit before tax and if the financials of last 30 years are not available, information available for maximum period may be taken. Another option may be valuation based upon compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of last 30 years’ profit before tax but excluding depreciation and if the financials of last 30 years are not available, information available for maximum period may be taken. It was also directed by IMG that all options may be considered by the Committee constituted for computing the Loss of Business Opportunity.”

Fresh calculations have been undertaken in accordance with the decision of the IMG dated 4.2.2019 on the basis of financial data for 29 years (From FY 2015-16 to FY 1987-88). As per the same, the valuation based upon Profit before Tax excluding Depreciation works out to ' 155.48 crores approx. In case, valuation is undertaken on PBT basis, the compensation for Loss of Business Opportunity works out to ' 123.68 crores approx.

Further, meeting of the Valuation Committee was held on February 12, 2020 and Committee desired the consultant to make presentation on the valuation of ' 206.93 crore. Based on consultant's presentation in next meeting, they were asked to give further valuation based on IMG decision dated February 4, 2019. Consultant submitted the valuation on March 2, 2020 which shall be put up to the Valuation Committee in the next meeting. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, meeting is yet to be conducted.

Since, the approval of amount of compensation due on account of loss of business opportunity is still awaited from MoT therefore, the VRS amount of ' 644.14 lakh has been kept under recoverable and nothing towards compensation for loss of business opportunity has been considered in the Financial Statements for the Financial Year 2020-21.
