ADVERSE FACTORS The tourism and hotel industry as a whole is passing through a phase of recession since the last 4 to 5 years. The September attacks in USA and the terrorism in Kashmir has only added to this as the flow of tourists into India has been severely affected. Financial Problems The Company has planned hotel projects at 4 different locations in south India in the year 1999-2000 at a total cost of Rs.3927.31 lacs. Your Company invested Rs.1527.31 lacs from its own resources towards promoters' contribution and completed the club houses at these locations. However, in spite of giving in-principal sanction from financial institutions to participate in this project, it restrained from extending any additional support to your Company as they decided not to take any additional exposure of the hotel industry. Because of this your Company could not complete the hotel buildings without which revenues could not be generated. This affected the financial leverage of the Company. To add to these problems a new legislation "SEBI (Collective Investment Schemes) Regulations, 1999 brought about the closure of all the membership schemes like plantation schemes, etc. Such companies were directed to make immediate premature repayments of the amounts collected under such schemes. This not only strained the Company's cash flows but also affected the normal business of the Company as the customers / investors developed a negative psyche towards the Company. The enactment and implementation of another ordinance "Maharashtra Protection of Investors and Deposit Holders" by the government of Maharashtra pushed the Company further into cash flow problems. Under the provisions of this Act a deposit holder / investor can prosecute a Company denying premature refund of deposits.
