The Directors of the company present the 35th Annual Report of your Company togetherwith the Audited financial statements and the Auditors Report of your company for thefinancial year March 31st 2017. The summarized financial results for the yearended March 31st 2017 are as under:-
1. Financial Results
2. Review of Operations
The Company has achieved a turnover (Sales and other income) of Rs.23.43 Lakhs againstRs.11.81 Lakhs reported last year and there was a Gross Profit of Rs.6.07 Lakhs ascompared to Gross Loss of Rs.3.40 lakhs reported last year.
The Hon'ble BIFR had directed the Asset Sale Committee (ASC) to sell the surplus assetsof the Company at Tarapur and Daman. The sales proceeds were to be used to settle thestatutory dues along with the dues of the Bankers and UTI. Accordingly the ASC confirmedthe Sale of the Company's properties at Tarapur and Daman in favor of M/s. Mount OverseasPrivate Limited Mumbai who directly deposited a sum of Rs.270 lacs with the OperatingAgency for the purchase of the same. The Company was directed to prepare and submit theDraft Rehabilitation Scheme to the Operating Agency.
The Operating Agency submited its report to the Hon'ble BIFR vide their letter No.CMW/OAD/180/JPV/2013 of date March 27th 2013 who directed the Operating Agency thereafterto retain this amount of Rs. 270 lacs in a No Lien deposit account (Short term for 91days) to be automatically renewed till further instructions and the same to be a part ofDraft Rehabilitation Scheme.
In the interim period the secured lenders were not willing to wait for the DraftRehabilitation Scheme to be formulated circulated and approved as a consensus wasdifficult to be had within the Consortium and UTI. Based on directions from Hon'ble BIFRto settle the secured creditors of the Company the Company entered into dialogue withthem for a One-time Settlement. After much follow up they individually agreed on thecondition of upfront payment.
The Company's finances did not permit this and so a bridge finance was arranged fromM/s. Sai Ram Investments of Rs. 128 lacs. Unable to commit to payment of interest on apercentage basis given the already existing financial burden it was agreed that theamount would be repaid to M/s. Sai Ram Investments from the sales proceeds together with50% interest that would have accrued on the amount kept in the No Lien Account with theOperating Agency. It was agreed between the Company and M/s. Sai Ram Investments that thebridge finance repayment would not exceed beyond 42 months from the date of firstdisbursal.
As the amount still rests with the Operating Agency and the date of release uncertainthe figure of interest is presently not determinable. Therefore no provision for interesthas been made either as receivable from Operating Agency or payable from the same to M/s.Sai Ram Investments. The necessary adjustments of interest receipt and interest paymentwould be made in the Books on actual realization.
While drafting the Draft Rehabilitation Scheme as per norms the promoters wererequired to bring in 25% of the Rehabilitation costs proposed. The Promoters have advancedto the Company Rs.85 lacs till date of reporting. In absence of the Draft RehabilitationScheme being circulated and approved the Company has received a representation from thePromoters for release of the said amount and seeking payment of interest (equivalent tothat of a savings bank account) on the amount advanced to the Company from the currentfinancial year onwards.
M/s. Sai Ram Investments have also been actively pursuing the Company for repayment ofthe bridge finance taken. The Company has requested the Operating Agency to release theamount kept in No Lien Account on behalf of the Company. However in absence of furtherinstructions from appropriate authority the Operating Agency is unable to act in thematter.
On the operations front the Directors continue to look for business streams that canaugment the business volume of the company. The company's plants are presently nonoperational due to various constraints.
