The turnover of the Company for the year ended 31st March 2017 decreasedby 10.48% and stood at Rs.2156.14 Lakhs as against Rs.2408.78 Lakhs in the previous year.During the year under review your Company recorded total income of Rs.2394.39 Lakhs asagainst Rs.2492.89 Lakhs in the previous year. The year under review was adverselyaffected due to stressed working capital and liquidity crunch thereby affecting theearning capacity of the Company. However during the year the company has incurred lossof Rs.1181.69 Lakhs as against loss of Rs.6124.94 Lakhs in the previous year. The Companyhas not provided for interest on financing facilities from secured lenders-banksamounting to Rs.5309.26 Lakhs for the year ended 31st March 2017. Had the samebeen accounted for; the net loss (after tax) would have been increased by Rs.5309.26Lakhs for the year ended 31st March 2017. Hence the resultant turnover andincome for the year under review was lower than that expected by the management.
The performance during the year was not satisfactory due to various reasons beyond thecontrol of the Management. The products in which the Company is dealing is facing cutthroat competition. The supply pressure in the market is leading to the buyers' market andprice erosion. At the same time the costs have increased due to inflation in the economyand devaluation of Rupee against the foreign currencies. Due to this the company iscurrently facing liquidity mismatch wherein it is not generating enough cash flows to meetits debt obligations on time. Further there is huge dumping of the products from China andother Countries which has resulted in the stiff competition and price reduction which hasresulted in lower capacity utilisation.
Reductions in the subsidies and withdrawal of Government incentive programmes in majorEuropean markets have generated a negative sentiment for photovoltaic (PV) installations.At the same time huge dumping by Chinese Solar Products manufacturers resulted in the fallin prices. The severe fall in the prices of Solar Photovoltaic cells globally on accountof reduced demand resulted in the Company position in very tragic condition wherein theCompany is unable to stand in the Competitive and Price sensitive market. As a result theCompany has been unable to utilize its capacity and the cost of production of solar cellscontinues to be higher than the prevailing market prices.
With the continued pledge and commitment across developed and developing countries bythe governments towards renewable sources of energy demand for solar energy is expectedto improve.
JNNSM guidelines stipulate that the certain grid connected Solar PV plants in Indianeeds to install the Indian made Solar Modules which should contain Indian made SolarCells. This will create the market for Indian Solar Cell Manufacturers to market theirproducts. Your Company also envisages the huge potential of business opportunity goingahead. However at the same time the challenges in the form of adequate working capitalsupply of products of prevalent quality and product efficiency needs to be addressed byall the Indian players. The industry being such that the technology and product efficiencyupgadation is at a faster pace. Hence your Company needs to be at par with internationalstandard of product quality in order to remain competitive in the Market.
Indian Government is focused on the implementation of its various programmes ofpromoting solar power generation under the various schemes which are implemented at centreand state level. This will create new business opportunities for the solar industry.

1. The attention is invited to the note no.3 of the financial statements towards thefact that the Company's financing facilities/arrangements including Term Loans WorkingCapital Facilities and Non Fund Based Credit Facilities have expired and the accounts withthe Banks have turned into Non Performing Assets since more than 5 years.

Further the networth of theCompany has fully eroded and the Company had filed for registration u/s. 15(1) of the SickIndustrial Companies (Special Provisions) Act 1985 before the Hon'ble Board forIndustrial & Financial Reconstruction.
All the above events indicate a material uncertainty that casts a significant doubt onthe Company's ability to continue as a going concern and therefore it may be unable torealize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business.
