2.31.1 :Disputed claims under' Karnataka Forest Act:

Government of Karnataka had introduced Forest Development Tax (FDT), to pay @ 12% on the sale value of iron ore with effect from 27.08.2008. NMDC preferred an appeal before Hon'ble High Court of Karnataka and the court passed an interim order directing the Company to pay 50% of FDT, consisting of 25% in cash and balance 25% in the form of Bank Guarantee. As against the total FDT demand of Rs.487.37 Crore( from August 2008 to Sep-2011), the Company has deposited an amount of Rs 121.84 Crore (25%) in cash which has been shown as amount recoverable and submitted a bank guarantee for similar amount. An amount of Rs. 365.53 Crore (balance 50% amount of Rs. 243.69 Crore plus 121.84 Crore paid and accounted as amount recoverable)is included under disputed claims at 1.1 .A. The amount of Rs. 121.84 Crore for which BG was given is included under contingent liability on BGs' at 1.2.

Hon'ble High Court of Karnataka vide order dated 03.12.2015 has quashed the orders of Government of Karnataka levying the FDT and ordered refund of the tax collected within three months and accordingly the Company has lodged refund claims. However, Government of Karnataka has filed a Special Leave Petition with Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, challenging the orders of Hon'ble High Court of Karnataka. Hon'ble Supreme Court of India has accepted the same and imposed stay on refund of the FDT amount.

Meanwhile Karnataka State Govt, had enacted Karnataka Forest (Amendment) Act 2016 vide Gazette notification dated 27.07.2016. The amendment substituted the word 'Tax' in the principal act to 'Fee' w.e.f 16th day of Aug 2008. Based on this the Monitoring Committee had started billing the Forest Development Fee in its invoices. Meanwhile consumers in Karnataka had filed separate Writ Petitions in Hon'ble High Court of Karnataka on the above. Karnataka High Court vide its order dated 20th Sept. 2016, had ordered that State Govt may restrain from collecting FDF during the pendency of the writ petition, subject to the condition of furnishing bank guarantee in respect of 25% of the demand in relation to future transactions. Karnataka State Govt, had approached Hon'ble Supreme Court on this. Hon'ble Supreme Court vide its order dated 13.02.201 7 modified the order of High Court of Karnataka and ordered for payment of 50% of the demanded amount and furnish Bond for balance amount.

The amount billed by the monitoring committee amounting to Rs.93.85 croretowards FDF has been accounted under sales revenue during the Financial year 2017-18. As, the Karnataka High Court vide its judgement dated 4th October 2017 has declared the Karnataka Forests (Amendment) Act, 2016 which was introduced for collection of Forest Development Fee (FDF) as unconstitutional, No FDF was collected nor paid with effect from 5th October 201 7.

(H) Risk exposure:

Through its defined benefit plans, the Company is exposed to a number of risks, the most significant of which are detailed below:

I Investment risk:

Most of the plan asset investments are in government securities, other fixed income securities with high rating grades and mutual funds/ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds). The fair value of these assets is subject to volatility due to change in interest rates and other market & macro-economic factors. There is also a risk of asset liability matching i.e. the cash flow for plan assets does not match with cash flow for plan liabilities.

ii) Changes in discount rate:

The present value of defined benefit plan liabilities is calculated using a discount rate which is determined by reference to government bonds' yields at the end of the reporting period. A decrease (increase) in discount rate will increase (decrease) present values of plan liabilities, although this will be partially offset by an increase in the value of the plans' investments.

iii) Mortality rate risk:

The present value of the defined benefit plan liability is calculated by reference to the best estimate of the mortality of plan participants both during and after their employment. An increase in the life expectancy of the plan participants will increase the plan's liability.

iv) Salary escalation risk:

The present value of the defined benefit plan liability is calculated by reference to the future salaries of plan participants. As such, an increase in the salary of the plan participants will increase the plan's liability.

v) Turnover rate/Withdrawal rate of employee:

If the actual employee withdrawal rate in the future turns out to be more or less than expected then it may result in increase/decrease in the liability.

2.32.2. Segment Reporting as per Ind - AS-108A. Basis for segmentation

An operating segment is a component of the company that engages in business activities from which it may earn revenues and incur expenses and for which discrete financial information is available. All operating segments' operating results are reviewed regularly by the Board of Directors to make decisions about resources to be allocated to the segments and assess their performance.

The company has two reportable segments, as described below, which are the company's strategic business units. These business units offer different products and services, and are managed separately because they require different technology and marketing strategies. For each of the business units, the company's Board reviews internal management reports on a periodic basis.

The following summary describes the operations in each of the company's reportable segments:

B. Information about reportable segments

Information regarding the results of each reportable segment is included below. Performance is measured based on segment profit (before tax), segment revenue and segment capital employed as included in the internal management reports that are reviewed by the board of directors. Segment profit is used to measure performance as management believes that such information is the most relevant in evaluating the results of certain segments relative to other entities that operate within these industries. Inter-segment pricing is determined on an arm's length basis.

Trade receivables are non-interest bearing . As on March 2023, Rs 1,905.13 crore (March 2022: Rs 2,932.14 crore) was recognised as provision for expected credit losses on trade receivables.

Contract assets are generally recognised in case of supply of services only when the receipt of money is conditional on milestone even after satisfaction of performance obligation.

2.34.9 Sale of Iron Ore to Pellet Plant at Kumaraswamy, Karnataka:

Due to restrictions imposed in Karnataka for purchase / sale of Iron Ore, Pellet Plant was purchasing Iron Ore Fines from NMDC, DIOM/KIOM through e-auctions conducted by MC. As per the terms and conditions of Acceptance letter issued by MC and as per the guidelines given by Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, Pellet Plant was paying Basic Value, Royalty Value and Bulk Permit fee value to MC and GST amount to NMDC Donimalai account. After receipt of GST amount from PPT, DIOM/KIOM was issuing Advance receipt confirming the receipt of GST from Pellet plant along with necessary statutory documents to MC in the prescribed Format. Based on the advance receipt issued by DIOM/KIOM, MC was issuing Bulk Permit to PPT for lifting of material. DIOM/KIOM was raising Tax Invoice on PPT for the dispatched quantity, showing it as sales and also paying GST to Government.

Simultaneously, PPT was recognizing the same as purchases and availing input credit. The above procedure was followed due to Compulsion made by MC as they had denied permission for PPT to lift the Iron Ore without participating in auction and accordingly, separate GST registration is also taken as per MC instructions.

However, the entry for un-realized profit on sale of Iron Ore to Pellet Plant was accounted.

W.e.f Oct-22 NMDC-DIOM/KIOM is selling the Iron Ore to Pellet Plant directly based on the order of Hon'ble Supreme Court dt. 20.05.2022 and accounting the same as Inter Unit Sales. The Inter Unit sales, consumption and inventory is eliminated during consolidation and un-realized profit on stock of ore at pellet plant is accounted.

2.34.10 Review for Impairment of Investment in Legacy Iron Ore Ltd, Australia (LIOL):

The total investment of the Company in LIOL is Rs.214.70 cr as on 31.3.2023. This is 90.02% of the total shareholding of the Company. This investment in Legacy was reviewed for impairment with reference to Ind AS 36.

It is noted that the period of exploration is not expired and exploration activity is being continued and the company has not reached the stage of establishing the commercial viability of the tenements. Legacy Iron Ore Limited is an active exploration company with a diverse portfolio. For an exploration company, the future cash flows are from the exploration tenements which have been recognised as assets ie., Exploration and Evaluation (E&E) Assets. LIOL E&E assets as on 31.03.2023, after transfer of exploration expenses of Rs.9.99 crore (representing 18% interest) to Hancock pertaining to Mount Bevan tenements, is Rs. 87.60 crores (Previous year Rs.91.83 crores).

LIOL is systematically exploring all the exploration tenements that are at varying levels of exploration potential and maturity. The company plans to continue exploration in all the above tenements and does not intend to surrender the current list of tenements. It is observed that the total mineral resources estimated from Mt. Celia Project is increased to 3,12,600 ounces from 1,79,700 ounces during the previous period.

Note No: 2.34.28 Financial Risk Management

a) Risk management framework

The Company's Board of Directors has overall responsibility for the establishment and oversight of the Company's risk management framework. The Board of Directors has established the Risk Management Committee, which is responsible for developing and monitoring the Company's risk management policies. The committee reports regularly to the Board of Directors on its activities.

The Company's risk management policies are established to identify and analyse the risks faced by the Company, to set appropriate risk limits and controls and to monitor risks and adherence to limits. Risk management policies and systems are reviewed regularly to reflect changes in market conditions and the Company's activities. The Company, through its training and management standards and procedures, aims to maintain a disciplined and constructive control environment in which all employees understand their roles and obligations.

The Board of Directors monitors the compliance with the Company's risk management policies and procedures, and reviews the adequacy of the risk management framework in relation to the risks faced by the Company.

Credit risk is the risk that counterparty will not meet its obligations under a financial instrument or customer contract, leading to a financial loss. The Company is exposed to credit risk from its operating activities (primarily trade receivables) and deposits with banks.

(a) Trade receivables

"The Company sales are generally based on advance payments and through LC's. The trade receivables in the books are mainly on account of credit sales to M/s RINL Limited, CPSE under the Ministry of Steel and the Sales of Iron Ore in the State of Karnataka which is through Mentoring Committee (MC) appointed by Hon'ble Supreme Court of India. "

Expected credit loss for trade receivables under simplified approach is detailed as per the below tables Year

The impairment provisions for trade receivables disclosed above are based on assumptions about risk of default and expected loss rates.

(b) Financial instruments and cash deposits

Credit risk from balances with banks is managed by the Company's treasury department in accordant with DPE guidelines & Company's policy. Investments of surplus funds are made only with scheduled commercial banks having a minimum net worth of Rs 500 Crore within limits assigned to each bank and Debt based mutual funds of public sector AMCs. The limits are reviewed by the Company's Boarc of Directors on an annual basis. The limits are set to minimise the concentration of risks and therefore mitigate financial loss through counterparty's potential failure to make payments.

B. Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will encounter difficulty in meeting the obligations associated with its financial liabilities that are settled by delivering cash or another financial asset. The Company's approach to managing liquidity is to ensure, as far as possible, that it will have sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities when they are due, under both normal and stressed conditions, without incurring unacceptable losses or risking damage to the Company's reputation.

Typically the Company ensures that it has sufficient cash on demand to meet expected operational expenses for a period of 60 days, including the servicing of financial obligations; this excludes the potential impact of extreme circumstances that cannot reasonably be predicted, such as natural disasters. In addition, the Company has taken fund based limits with banks to meet its short term financial obligations.

Market risk is the risk that changes in market prices, such as foreign exchange rates and interest rates will affect the Company's income or the value of its holdings of financial instruments. The objective of market risk management is to manage and control market risk exposures within acceptable parameters, while optimising the return.

(i) Foreign currency risk

Since majority of the company's operations are being carried out in India and since all the material balances are denominated in its functional currency, the company does not carry any material exposure to currency fluctuation risk.

The Company's exposure to foreign currencies is minimal and hence no sensitivity analysis is presented.

(ii) Interest rate risk

Interest rate risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates. The company quite often bridges its short term cash flow mismatch by availing working capital loans from banks against its fixed deposits. Such loans have a very short tenure and the interest rate on such loans is based upon the rates offered by banks on fixed deposits , increased by a few basis points. Since the interest rates on fixed deposits are fixed, the company does not have any interest rate risk on such loans availed on a loan to loan basis.

The Company's exposure to interest rate risk is minimal and hence no sensitivity analysis is presented.

Note No. : 2.34.19 Capital Management a) Risk management

The Company's objectives when managing the capital are to safeguard their ability to continue as a going concern, so that they can continue to provide returns for shareholders and benefits for other stakeholders.
