Details of previous financial years' turnover:

As the shareholders are bound to compare the figures of total turnover of lastfinancial year with that of current year's the management is of the view to clarify thedetails of previous financial year's turnover.

The financial results of the Company for quarter ended 31st December 2017 reflectsthe total revenue of Rs.4 Crores which has been apportioned out of the final settlementof ongoing dispute with Carnival Cinema Private Limited.

In the recent past the Company tried to sell off its Mall at Agra and against which ithas received an advance of Rs.11 Cr. from the potential buyer. The potential buyerhappened to be the Carnival Cinema Private Limited who had also taken on the lease themall at Meerut. The Carnival was having outstanding of around 5 Cr. against the Rent forusing the property at Meerut. The same never received and the Company has appropriated thesame against the advance received from them against the proposed purchase of property atAgra.

This matter went into dispute and finally after having rounds of discussions andnegotiations the Company has finally paid off Rs.2.25 Cr. to Carnival Cinema against thefinal settlement of dispute. Accordingly out of Rs.11 Cr. Rs.5 Cr. were apportionedagainst the Rents dues from Carnival Cinema for the use of Meerut mall and Rs.1.75 Cr.were paid and remaining amount has been apportioned as revenue of the Company. The finalprofit of Rs.3.75 Cr. in the financial results is merely an accounting treatment of theincome and money already received in the past. The Company has not earned any income assuch from its operations.

The profit arising is merely out of the accounting treatment of the whole settlementand hence there is no actual realization of any money or profit as such.

Future Outlook:

You will also appreciate the fact that the Management has no control over the marketforces and all are aware of the challenging times faced by Real Estate players. Even themajor players like DLF DB Realty Unitech etc. are highly stressed. The only silverlining in our case is that the Company is having "Zero Debt" and has been ableto weather all the storms.

The Management and Board of Directors are striving and committed to bring the Companyto the right track and bring back the prosperity which the Shareholders have once seen andhave relied upon.

The Secretarial Audit Report does qualification and reply of management to that it asfollows:

At present the secretarial work of the Company is handled by Company Secretary of theCompany who happens to be very old employee of the Company.
