Company director report

SHIVANI VANASPATI LIMITED ANNUAL REPORT 2001-2002 DIRECTOR'S REPORT Dear Shareholders, Your Directors have pleasure in presenting the 10th Annual Report together with the Audited Accounts of the Company for the financial year ended 30th June, 2002. DIVIDEND: Due to absence of profit for the financial year ended 30th June 2002 your Directors are not in a position to recommend any dividend. PERFORMANCE REVIEW: The Company got the Sales Tax Exemption w.e.f. the date of commercial production i.e. 6th July, 1997. It was subsequently withdrawn from 1st August 1999. The Company has neither collected and Sales Tax from the customers nor deposited with Sales Tax Authority since the Company expects Sales Tax Exemption with retrospective effect from 1.08.1999. On 8.1.2002 the Hon'ble High Court of Orissa dismissed the writ petition filed by the Company challenging the withdrawal of Sales Tax Exemption granted earlier by the Govt. of Orissa. The Company has filed a review application on 14.01.2002 before the Hon'ble High Court of Orissa against the said judgement and the matter is subjudice. Based on the appeal made before the Hon'ble Commissioner of Commercial Tax, Orissa, Cuttack on 17.01.2002 u/s. 22(1), 32(1) & 33(1) of SICA, 1985, the Hon'ble Commissioner took a judicious view and upheld the petition of the Company on 02.02.2002 directing not to take any coercive action against the Company till the BIFR disposes the case. Due to delay in the hearing of review petition which has already been filed before the Hon'ble High Court of Orissa, the Company moved to the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, New Delhi by filing a Special Leave Petition (SLP) on 25.02.2002 to get justice immediately. The Hon'ble Supreme Court advised the petitioner to complete the review application matters pending before the Hon'ble High Court of Orissa before pursuing the matter before the Apex Court. Accordingly the Company withdrew the SLID as advised by the Apex Court on 12.03.2002. The review petition is now subjudice before the Hon'ble High Court of Orissa. After dismissal of writ- petition on 8.01.2002 the suppliers of raw materials have stopped supplying the raw materials on the fear that Sales Tax Authorities may attach the same at any point of time. Hence the production of the Company has been suspended since March 2002. The management of the Company is exploring various options to recommence the production activities and is very optimistic about the same.
