Your Directors have to state that during the year ended March 31, 2010 your Company has not been able to maintain its growth history. The World Economic Crisis and the slump in the global market had put the Industry in a very bad situation. Your directors have to further state that in spite of the slump in global market, the Indian scenario was a shade better. In these difficult times your Company managed to float and avert the crisis to the best ability of your Directors. Our main customers are related to the Automobile and Electrical Industry. Both these sectors were in the red since the global and the domestic market was low. There was panic in the Industry too. The company managed to control the overheads to offset the lower revenue, increase in prices of electricity & labour costs.
