b) Change in Policy on appropriation of recoveries in NPA Accounts:

Hitherto, the Bank was appropriating recoveries in NPA accounts first towards unrecovered charges and balance towards unrecovered interest and principal in that order. With effect from 1st April 2014, the Bank has changed its accounting policy for appropriation of recoveries in NPA accounts. Thus, recoveries in such accounts are now first appropriated towards unrecovered charges and balance towards unrecovered principal and interest in that order. The impact of this change in policy on interest income on NPA accounts for the year and on net profit for the year is not readily ascertainable. However, had the policy not been changed, the profit for the year would have been higher.

f) The Bank has changed its policy with respect to treatment of excess provision on sale of financial assets to Asset Reconstruction Company (ARC)/Securitization Company (SC) / Banks / FIs / NBFCs where the sale is at a value higher than the NBV.

Had the policy not been changed, Net profit for the year would have been lower by Rs.161.60 crores and provision against sold assets would have been higher by Rs.161.60 crores and reserves would have been lower by Rs.106.67 (net of Tax).

Based on the opinion of tax consultant, the Bank considers the difference between accounting income and taxable income on account of difference in valuation of securities as permanent difference and accordingly recognition of Deferred Tax Liability of Rs.754.91 crores as at 31st March 2015 has not been considered necessary.

The main drivers for the contribution to the LCR are Excess liquid investments over the SLR requirement, the marginal standing facility(MSF) available from RBI and the facility to avail liquidity for LCR.

u) Unhedged Foreign Currency Exposure :

Unhedged foreign currency exposures of the entities are an area of concern not only for individual entity but also to the entire financial system. Entities who don't hedge their foreign currency exposures can incur significant losses due to exchange rate movements. These losses may reduce their capacity to service the loans taken from the banking system and thereby affect the health of the banking system.

I. Methodology of computation of Incremental provision on account of Unhedged Foreign Currency Exposure: For calculating the incremental provisioning and capital requirements, the following methodology is followed:

a) Ascertainment of the amount of Unhedged Foreign Currency Exposure (UFCE):

Foreign Currency Exposure (FCE) refers to the gross sum of all items on the balance sheet of the borrowers that have impact on profit and loss account due to movement in foreign exchange rates.

UFCE may exclude items which are effective hedge of each other. For this purpose, both financial hedge and natural hedge can be considered. Financial hedge is ensured normally through a derivative contract with a financial institution. Natural hedge may be considered when cash flows arising out of the operations of the company offset the risk arising out of the foreign currency exposure.

b) Estimation the extent of likely loss:

The loss to the entity in case of movement in USD-INR exchange rate is calculated using the annualised volatilities. For this purpose, largest annual volatility seen in the USD-INR rates during the period of last ten years is taken as the movement of the USD-INR rate in the adverse direction.

Likely loss = UFCE * Highest annual volatility of last ten years

c) Estimation of the risk of unhedged position

Once the loss figure is calculated, it is compared with the annual EBID as per the latest quarterly results of the constituents certified by the statutory auditors. This loss is computed as a percentage of EBID. Higher this percentage, higher will be the susceptibility of the entity to adverse exchange rate movements. Therefore, as a prudential measure, all exposures to such entities would attract incremental capital and provisioning requirements (i.e., over and above the present requirements) as under:

d) Incremental Provision

This provision is over and above the standard provision requirement. This aggregated amount of the incremental provision on account of UFCE has been provided starting with the quarter ending June- 2014. For the first year the total provision requirement can be apportioned for the four quarters.

Beginning with quarter ending June-2015, Bank shall provide the total actual incremental provision with respect to the UFCE.

Based on the available data, available financial statements and the declaration from borrowers wherever received, the Bank has estimated the liability of Rs.35 crores on Unhedged Foreign Currency Exposure of its constituents in terms of RBI circular no.DBOD no.BP.85/21.06.200/2013-14 dated January 15, 2014 and clarification vide Circular no.DBOD.NO.BP. BC.116/21.06.200/2013-14 dated 03.06.2014. Accordingly the Bank has made incremental provision for the year ended March 31, 2015 of Rs.35 crores.

(v) Previous year figures

Previous year figures have been regrouped/rearranged wherever considered necessary to conform to the current year's classification.

We, the undersigned Statutory Central Auditors of the SyndicateBank, have verified the above Cash Flow Statement of the Bank for the year ended 31.03.2015. The Statement has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Clause 32 of the listing agreement with the Stock Exchanges and is based on and is in agreement with the corresponding Profit and Loss Account and Balance Sheet of the Bank covered by our Report.
