Impact of the CoVID-19 pandemic on the business:

In the month of March of FY 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic developed rapidly into a globalcrisis forcing governments to enforce lock-downs of all economic activities. This hascaused interruption in economic activities and poised challenges in logistics and abilityto maintain smooth operations of the Company.

The Company is a player into ITES industry and also operates as system integrator intovarious smart city projects of Governments. Although the effect of pandemic were feltsince last year by the industry across the Company continued to move forward at ameasured pace.

The overall impact of CoVID-19 on the businesses of the Company has varied depending onhealth and socioeconomic measures taken at the Government levels and hence cannot bereliably predicted.

Ability to maintain operations and schedule for restarting operations

As an ITES activities are concerned the Company was able to operate with the work forceworking from home. All the on-site government projects were suspended. After gettingnecessary permission from the Government and authorities these projects will start as pergovernment guidelines and approvals. The Company possesses its ability and readiness tostart its temporarily suspended projects however this also depends upon externalinterruptions which cannot be reliably forecasted at this point of time.

Operations during lockdown

Your Company is committed to follow all the Government directives and guidelines andensures health and safety of all the work force of the Company.

Work from home facility is provided to most of the employees and they are advised to bein touch with their immediate supervisors for any kind of support during any emergencysituation. Various measures are taken by the HR Department to keep the health (physicaland mental) of employees positive.

To estimate the further impacts in terms of numbers will become very speculativehowever the company has made and is also making every effort to come out of this situationand move fast forward.

Estimation of the future impact of CoVID-19 on its operations

The suspended government projects are likely to have significant financial impact onthe operations of the Company.

Also the Company predict substantial drop in new business avenues in the forthcomingcouple of quarters. The payment for the completed Government project will be deferred andwill result in increase in cost of project capital. There will be fewer new projects andthe Company foresee halt in the bids in which the Company was a bidder.

To estimate the further impacts in terms of numbers is very speculative however thecompany is making every effort to come out of this situation and move fast forward.

Assets No major impact on the Assets used for ITES however the work-in-progress assets and other assets used in the system integration projects will be impacted.
Internal financial reporting and All the internal financial reporting and controls are in place and continues to function as usual.control The Company will use all the available measures to ensure that the risk is minimised.
