Dear Fellow Shareholders

The Steel industry is the backbone of any economy especially in developing countrieswhose material intensity is likely to increase significantly in the future forinfrastructure development and growth in manufacturing sector. Among these Indian economyis one that is poised to grow significantly over the next decade with its per capitaconsumption nearly at one-fourth of the global average. A competitive and efficientdomestic steel industry is a pre-requisite for India to succeed in its industrial visionfor 'Make in India'. Investments in the steel sector are highly capital intensive and longterm in nature whose economic viability is dependent on the fundamental growthassumptions of the domestic economy. The Government of India aims to triple the steelcapacity to 300 million tonnes by 2025. In order to ensure that such capacity is viable toset up and value creating for the stakeholders it is important to ensure that the ease ofdoing business is enhanced and the Indian steel industry is not unfairly harmed by lowpriced subsidised imports from overseas.

In India the Steel Industry is passing through a challenging phase. Domesticconsumption is severely affected due to lack of activity in infrastructure as well as inthe manufacturing scope. The biggest challenge facing the domestic steel industry is tohave the per capita steel consumption in India at par with the average global company. Inthis challenging phase your Company had tried its best to maintain the level ofperformance. The financial year 2015-16 has been an average year for the Company. TheCompany faced many challenges in its operating sector due to falling prices of finishedproducts spurred by significant imports from countries like China Korea etc. like manyother players operating in the similar sector. In spite of significant fall in prices offinished goods as compared to last year the Company's revenue from operations decreasedby 0.34% only. Howevernet profit significantly decreased by 78.87%.

Since your Company is engaged in the production of Wire Rods and TMT bars which aremainly used in the construction and infrastructure as well as in the manufacturing unitstherefore the outlook for your Company is closely linked to that of the steelinfrastructure and real estate industry and the demand for TMT and wire rod in particularis influenced by the price & availability of raw materials. Looking into presentmarket situation the future of the Company looks good and forward looking.

Further we express our deep condolences for the sudden demise of Shri Shyam BahadurSingh Independent Non-Executive Director of the Company on March 26 2016 and deeplyappreciate the valuable contributions made by him in the growth of the Company.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

CSR activities continue to play a pivotal role with focus on inclusive sustainablegrowth. In the year 2015-16 the emphasis was on society's care and provision of welfaremeasures to the needy. A separate section is provided in Directors' Report regarding CSRactivities.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

Your company's commitment to transparency in Corporate Governance is reflected in itsestablishing appropriate systems and procedures for every process. A separate Report onCorporate Governance along with Certificate on Compliances of Corporate Governance andSecretarial Audit forms part of the Annual Report.

ROAD AHEAD

India is increasingly becoming an important part of the international steel market anda key growth area for steel production based on various positive factors including itsstrong demand for steel arising from strong economic growth low per capita steelconsumption and abundant iron ore reserves. As India is one of the fast progressingnations around the world and we are expecting fast growth in the near future demand forsteel related products will always be there and will increase substantially keeping inmind the present pace in the Economy. We believe the Company will be able to flourish inthe competitive market along with an increase in demand for the products. Further ourmarketing team is also well poised to capture new opportunities created. The demand forlong products i.e. TMT Bars and Wire Rods in India is expected to remain robust in longrun due to escalation in demand created due to up-coming smart cities infrastructuredevelopment and also from other sectors consumer durables oil and gas industrialmachinery and real estate.
