BIFR also directed that if the Company submits a worthwhile rehabilitation package, the Board would be willing to consider the same at a further hearing and defer the show cause notice for sometime. Accordingly the Company submitted a revised rehabilitation scheme. The said notice came up for hearing before BIFR on 27.11.2000, where based on the Company's request for consideration of its revival proposal,BIFR directed IFCI, the Operating Agency (OA) to examine the proposal and convene a joint meeting of participating Financial Institutions/ Banks to consider the same.

As per the directive of BIFR the Company's aforesaid revival proposal was examined and discussed at the joint meeting of participating Financial Institutions and Banks held on 9th February,2001.The Banks have sought some time to convey their stand on the Company's offer. The Company is awaiting the decision of the Banks on the above proposal.
