A. Basis of Preparation
The Banks financial statements are prepared under the historical cost
convention, on the accrual basis of accounting, unless otherwise stated
and conform in all material aspects to Generally Accepted Accounting
Principles (GAAP) in India, which comprise applicable statutory
provisions, regulatory norms/guidelines prescribed by Reserve Bank of
India (RBI), Accounting Standards issued by the Institute of Chartered
Accountants of India (ICAI), and the practices prevalent in the banking
industry in India.
B. Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements requires the management to make
estimates and assumptions considered in the reported amount of assets
and liabilities (including contingent liabilities) as of the date of
the financial statements and the reported income and expenses during
the reporting period. Management believes that the estimates used in
the preparation of the financial statements are prudent and reasonable.
Future results could differ from these estimates.

obligations. The Banks "Policy for Derivatives" approved by the Board
prescribes the market risk parameters (cut-loss triggers, open position
limits, duration, modified duration, PV01 etc.) as well as customer
eligibility criteria (credit rating, tenure of relationship etc.) for
entering into derivative transactions. Credit risk is controlled by
entering into derivative transactions only with counterparties
satisfying the criteria prescribed in the Policy. Appropriate limits
are set for the counterparties taking into account their ability to

Plan and Gratuity Plan as per the actuarial valuation by the
independent Actuary appointed by the Bank:-
The estimates of future salary growth, factored in actuarial valuation,
take account of inflation, seniority, promotion and other relevant
factors such as supply and demand in the employment market. Such
estimates are very long term and are not based on limited past
experience / immediate future. Empirical evidence also suggests that in
very long term, consistent high salary growth rates are not possible,
which has been relied upon by the auditors.
2. Employees Provident Fund

Provident Fund Trust of the Bank, as per Deterministic Approach shows

b) Segment Reporting:
1. Segment Identification
I. Primary (Business Segment)
The following are the primary segments of the Bank:- - Treasury
- Corporate / Wholesale Banking
- Retail Banking
- Other Banking Business
The present accounting and information system of the Bank does not
support capturing and extraction of the data in respect of the above
segments separately. However, based on the present internal,
organisational and management reporting structure and the nature of
their risk and returns, the data on the primary segments have been
computed as under:
i. Treasury - The Treasury Segment includes the entire investment
portfolio and trading in foreign exchange contracts and derivative
contracts. The revenue of the treasury segment primarily consists of
fees and gains or losses from trading operations and interest income on
the investment portfolio.
ii. Corporate / Wholesale Banking - The Corporate / Wholesale Banking
segment comprises the lending activities of Corporate Accounts Group,
Mid Corporate Accounts Group and Stressed Assets Management Group.
These include providing loans and transaction services to corporate and
institutional clients and further include non-treasury operations of
iii. Retail Banking - The Retail Banking Segment comprises of branches
in National Banking Group, which primarily includes Personal Banking
activities including lending activities to corporate customers having
banking relations with branches in the National Banking Group. This
segment also includes agency business and ATMs.
iv. Other Banking business - Segments not classified under (i) to
(iii) above are classified under this primary segment.
II. Secondary (Geographical Segment)
i) Domestic Operations - Branches/Offices having operations in India
ii) Foreign Operations - Branches/Offices having operations outside
India and offshore Banking units having operations in India
III. Pricing of Inter-segmental Transfers
The Retail Banking segment is the primary resource mobilising unit. The
Corporate/Wholesale Banking and Treasury segments are recipient of
funds from Retail Banking. Market related Funds Transfer Pricing
(MRFTP) is followed under which a separate unit called Funding Centre
has been created. The Funding Centre notionally buys funds that the
business units raise in the form of deposits or borrowings and
notionally sell funds to business units engaged in creating assets.
IV. Allocation of Expenses, Assets and Liabilities
Expenses incurred at Corporate Centre establishments directly
attributable either to Corporate / Wholesale and Retail Banking
Operations or to Treasury Operations segment, are allocated
accordingly. Expenses not directly attributable are allocated on the
basis of the ratio of number of employees in each segment/ratio of
directly attributable expenses.
The Bank has certain common assets and liabilities, which cannot be
attributed to any segment , and the same are treated as unallocated.
During the year, the Bank has further refined the segmental transfer
pricing mechanism in order to report more relevant segment results.
This change effects the segment results inter se and has no impact on
the financials of the bank. The effect of the change on the segment
results is not fairly determined.
