(This Exposure Draft of the Indian Accounting Standard includes paragraphs set in bold type
and plain type, which have equal authority. Paragraphs in bold type indicate the main
principles. This Exposure Draft of the Indian Accounting Standard should be read in the
context of its objective and the Preface to the Statements of Accounting Standards1)


Paragraphs 93­94 are amended. New text is underlined and deleted text is struck through.
Paragraph 92 is included for reference only


Actuarial assumptions: salaries, benefits and medical costs
...

92     Some defined benefit plans require employees or third parties to contribute to the cost
      of the plan. Contributions by employees reduce the cost of the benefits to the entity. An
      entity considers whether third-party contributions reduce the cost of the benefits to the
      entity, or are a reimbursement right as described in paragraph 116. Contributions by
      employees or third parties are either set out in the formal terms of the plan (or arise
      from a constructive obligation that goes beyond those terms), or are discretionary.
      Discretionary contributions by employees or third parties reduce service cost upon
      payment of these contributions to the plan.

93    Contributions from employees or third parties set out in the formal terms of the plan
      either reduce service cost (if they are linked to service), or reduce affect
      remeasurements of the net defined benefit liability (asset) (if they are not linked to
      service). An example of contributions that are not linked to service is when (eg if the
      contributions are required to reduce a deficit arising from losses on plan assets or from
      actuarial losses). If cContributions from employees or third parties are linked to in

  Attention is specifically drawn to paragraph 4.3 of the Preface, according to which accounting
standards are intended to apply only to items which are material.
     respect of service, those contributions reduce the service cost as follows: are attributed
     to periods of service as a negative benefit in accordance with paragraph 70 (ie the net
     benefit is attributed in accordance with that paragraph).

     (a) if the amount of the contributions is dependent on the number of years of service,
         an entity shall attribute the contributions to periods of service using the same
         attribution method required by paragraph 70 for the gross benefit (ie either using
         the plan's contribution formula or on a straight-line basis); or

     (b) if the amount of the contributions is independent of the number of years of service,
         the entity is permitted to recognise such contributions as a reduction of the service
         cost in the period in which the related service is rendered. Examples of
         contributions that are independent of the number of years of service include those
         that are a fixed percentage of the employee's salary, a fixed amount throughout the
         service period or dependent on the employee's age.

      Paragraph A1 provides related application guidance.



94 For contributions from employees or third parties that are attributed to periods of service
    in accordance with paragraph 93(a), cChanges in employee or third-party the
    contributions in respect of service result in:

     (a)   current and past service cost (if those changes in employee contributions are not
            set out in the formal terms of a plan and do not arise from a constructive
            obligation); or

     (b)   actuarial gains and losses (if those changes in employee contributions are set out
           in the formal terms of a plan, or arise from a constructive obligation).

     ...
