5. MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS
The year under review has seen decrease in production and sales of your
Despite increase in raw material prices, the company could maintain better
percentage of Net Profit as compare to previous year.
The global economic environment which has been tumultuous through out last
year turned sharply adverse towards end of 2011 owing to political and
economic uncertainties in the Euro Zone. With international rating agencies
raising doubts about the outlook on the US economy, the possibility of a
global recession became more pronounced.
Comparatively the Indian economy has shown a growth of around 6.9 % in 2011
-2012 as compared to 8.4 % in the previous year. Agricultural growth
remains a priority for the Indian Government in order to achieve 'inclusive
growth'. Though the share of agriculture in India's GDP is slowly
declining, the importance of the sector to the economy continues to be very
high because of its share in employment and its impact on the macro
economic environment. The policy makers are still concerned that even today
the agricultural growth is affected by the vagaries of nature. The Union
Budget for 2012-2013 has sharply increased allocation for agriculture and
irrigation. The target for agricultural credit has been raised by Rs.
1,00,000 crore to Rs.5,75,000 crore in 2012-2013. Irrigation and Water
Resource Finance Company is being operationalized to mobilize large
resources to fund irrigation projects.
On the back of various Government initiatives to boost the i ural economy,
the demand for PVC Pipes will remain strong and it is expected that the
Government will continue to give priority to agriculture and rural
upliftment programmes in the years to come.
The company has instituted adequate internal control procedure commensurate
with the nature of its business and the size of its operations. Internal
Audit is conducted at regular intervals and covers the key areas of
operations. All significant audit observations and follow-up actions
