Your directors are pleased to provide the explanation in respect of the
points raised and qualified by the auditor in their audit report as
presented to the shareholders The explanations to the points enumerated in
the audit report are as follows:
a) Note no. 3(a)(I) -The unprecedented events which took place in the
period of reporting led to the entire factory being taken over by the IFCI
Limited in order to realize its debts. Also losses accumulating year by
year led to the erosion of the net worth of the company. Yet the management
of the company is optimistic and is contemplating to enter the trading
business in textile sector with the promise of full support: of its old and
loyal customers. The management envisages that this activity of trading in
textile sector will enable the company to run as going concern.
b) Note no. 3(a)(II)- The company had with the approval of the Board of
Directors of the company had suspended the provision of interest, penal
interest, penal charges and liquidated damages payable to the bankers and
Financial Institution. The management had a view that since the financial
position of the company is; not allowing it to service the debt of the
banks and Financial Institution, it was better that these element may be
suspended which inflate the losses as reported to its shareholders.
c) Note no. 3(a)(III) - The outstanding balances of the banks and financial
institution could not be confirmed in spite of several reminders since the
cases/ counter claims are pending before DIRT for final disposal. In
respect of unconfirmed bank balances with scheduled bank incurrent accounts
and margin money accounts, your directors wish to state that since these
accounts were in operations before the change of the management, these
accounts had become non-operational and request for closure of the said
accounts were made. Since the same request is still pending and the
respective banks have not even confirmed the balances in the respective
accounts after the several reminders.
d) Note no. 3(a)(IV) - The Company declared its last dividend in the year
1995-96. The dividend account for the distribution of the declared dividend
was opened with UCO bank. In the year 2001, there was a change in the
management and the employees handling these accounts left the organization
after the change in the management and no proper records in respect of
these accounts could be traced. The company had several times written to
UCO Bank for providing it with the statement so as to ascertain the amount
outstanding in respect of unpaid/ unclaimed dividend in these accounts so
that the same could be transferred to the Investor Education and Protection
Fund. But no response has been received till date from the respective bank
and this balance of Rs. 8.92 lacs is the amount being carried forward since
2001 in the absence of any further confirmation from UCO bank. The company
has decided to file an application under RTI Act 2005 to collect the
information in respect of these accounts.
e) Note no. 3(a)(V) - These claims are of contingent nature since cases in
the respective courts are pending and subject to settlement with the
f) Note no. 3(a)(VI) - The sales tax (CST and local tax) demand imposed by
Assistant Commissioner Commercial Tax, Gwalior vide his order dated 29th
January, 2007 for the assessment year 2003-04 carries a provision of appeal
against the demand and the management has forwarded its papers pertaining
to the matter for legal opinion and is of the view that it shall proceed to
file appeal against the demand. Thus, it is of contingent nature,
g) Note no. 3(a) (VII) - The inability of the company to repay the debts of
the secured lenders ultimately resulted in the physical possession being
taken over by the IFCI Ltd., on 13th March 2008.
Your Company has not accepted any deposits from the public during the year

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENT:
Cotton area continued to Increase in India and the U.S. in 2005. The
distribution of cotton area among regions In India changed little year to
year. The central states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Madhya Prdidesh
continue to plant approximately 63. percent of India's total cotton area.
The U.S. is currently forecast to export 16 million bales this year,. up
1.5 million bales from last year, compered to India's 1.8 million
bales,Although India's cotton exports are forecast to more than double this
year, it is unlikely to displace very much U.S. cotton in other markets
this year. Cotton consumption in India IS unlikely to keep pace with
India's growing production. An increasing amount of India's cotton will
find its way into export channels, particularly If world prices rise
relative to domestic prices, as the rising stock situation is
unsustainable. India's increased cotton production will have a growing
impact on the U.S. cotton industry in future years:
CCYL does not envisage any problem in marketing of its finished products as
it has a widely established dealer and distributor network. The emphasis
will be to strengthen the existing dealer and distributor network, and,.to
expand the same.
OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS
The cotton yarn industry has been showing signs of increasing production
and the long term outlook and growth prospects of the industry are also
encouraging. The company has established a position for itself in the
market as; supplier of cotton yarn and the product quality has been.
acceptable. The company expects that specialization in Cotton Yarn will
provide further opportunities to increase the customer base.
But as per the records available it has been' noticed that as an industry
cotton yarn's production in India has been decreasing from the financial
year, 19b5-1996 up to 2003-2004. After last year's record cotton
production, the U.S is forecast at the second highest production on record
at 22.7 while India's cotton production forecast is equal to last year's
record: Thus, the company looks forward to increase the capacity
utilization of the plant and also to build up a 'good distribution network.
SEGMENT -WISE /PRODUCT WISE PERFORMANCE
Since the company manufactures only one product i.e cotton yarn, reporting
of product wise performance is not applicable to the company.
Analysis of the textile industry provides that the industry shall witness
an upward movement. Thus, considering the fortunes of the industry, company
looks forward to increase its operations. The company has an overview that
it can be on better margins if it get itself diversified into the
production of combed yarn, readymade garments and made ups which are
currently in demand and fetching good prices in the international market.
RISKS AND CONCERNS
The company has adopted a risk management process which works on the
evaluation of the associated business risk so as to enable the company to
survive in the competitive environment. The company looks forward to get
itself: diversified into the production of other product which has a stable
and growing market. The complete evaluation of the market in respect of
these products will be carried out and calculations for the risk factor
involved will be undertaken to enable the company to make a foray into the
INTERNAL CONTROL SYSTEM AND ADEQUACY
The company has set up an internal control system that functions at various
levels of the organization. The system ensures compliance with the relevant
laws & regulations, efficiency of operations, minimization of wastage,
disclosure & adequate reporting of financial transactions, proper
administration. The internal control system in the company works on the
delegation of responsibility attached with the accountability for the
The Audit Committee of the company periodically reViews and ensures
adequacy of internal control system prevalent in the organization.
DISCUSSION ON FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE WITH RESPECT TO OPERATIONAL PERFORMANCE
The Government allows a 100% Export Oriented Unit (106% EOU) to sell only
50% of its exports (Considered on F.O.B. value basis) in the Domestic
Tariff Area (DTA) market. Since intbrnational prices of the company's
products have declined substantially, it is unremunerative to export at the
present time. The emerging paradox is that in the absence of export, the
company is not allowed to sell in the DTA.
As a result of developments in the international market in the past couple
of years, the margins in export of yarn had shrunk, and were also negative
at times. Due to peculiar position of the company as an EOU, it was forced
to accept unremunerative orders in the international market to maintain a
high level of aggregate production and be able to sell in the DTA; the loss
incurred in the export sales was thus required to be made good from sales
in DTA (the latter suffering from impost of custom duty).
During the fifteen months period under review, the production of cotton yam
was 1977.60 MT and production of Polyester Staple Fiber (PSF) was 41.65
MT The company achieved a total turnover of Rs. 1950.89 lakh. The company
has also earned other income to the tune of Rs. 6.00 Lakh which includes
interest on security deposit with M. P Stag Electricity Board of Rs. 4.99
The company was unable to service its debt both by way of payment of
interest and repayment of principal. Thus, it was decided by the management
to suspend the providing of interest, penal interest, penal charges and
liquidated damages payable to bankers, FIs w.e.f 01/04/2005.
Due to inability of the company to settle with secured lender, IFCI, Ltd.,
one of the main secured lender while acting under SARFAESI Act took over
the physical possession of the factory of the company situated at 25-B,
Malanpur Industrial Area, Malanpur, Distt. Bhind, Gwalior, M.P vide
Panchnama dated 130, March 2008.
The human resource department of the company works for the company
development, motivation, training of the employees of the company. Because
of the various recreational efforts being put by the HR department of the
company, the employees morale and dedication remains high which makes them
to contribute their fullest and best to the organization,
