The general business environment continued to be challenging due to the uncertain global economic scenario. The major challenge of textile industry is facing by increasing cost of production arising out of rising wages, high power cost etc and excess capacity installed in the cotton yarn industry. This led to lower margins as the Company could not pass on higher costs to customers. The exports during the year ended are not significant since the ruling prices of export continued to be non remunerative for our type of products and China all of sudden stopped buying cotton yarn from India. Further during the year ended the cotton yarn scenario continues to remain in pressure due to weak domestic textile market which has further resulted into severe pressure on the margins. During the year under review, turnover of your Company is Rs. 1,124,502,678/- as compared to the turnover of Rs.936,275,688/- during previous accounting period of 9 months.

19. Auditors Remarks

Explanation for the Qualified Opinion of the Auditors report.

1. The Company has not obtained the confirmation from all the ICD parties as all the ICD parties have filed legal cases against the Company including winding up petitions for recovery of their dues. The Company is contesting all the legal cases and also trying for out of court settlement by way of reschedulement, concessions or one time settlement.

2. The Company is in process of getting confirmation of dues of related parties.

3. Over the past few years the Company has been providing for interest receivable on loans given to related parties. However none of the related party has paid the interest amount to the Company resulting in unrealized income which further increases the receivable amount from the parties. Similarly, the Company has not been paying interest on loan taken from related parties in view of its default on repayment of dues to financial institutions and the need to preserve the scarce working capital resources. As such, the management has decided that it is prudent and conservative to not provide for such interest receivable and payable from the related parties till such time as they are settled in cash.

4. The Company has filed a petition before the Company Law Board, Mumbai for reschedulement of re-payment of fixed deposits and interest thereon. The Hon'ble Company Law Board has passed an order dated 19th May, 2015 for rescheduling the repayment of the fixed deposits and interest thereon for a specified period. The Company is now making payments as per order dated 19th May, 2015.

5. The Company has made provision for capital advances given to various equipment suppliers and other parties mainly towards implementing the Weaving Project and other projects which have not taken off. The parties are neither giving confirmation of outstanding amount nor repaying the advance amount. The Company is pursuing with the vendors for recovery of such advances. Pending such recovery, o ut of prudence the Company has decided to make provision for such advances totaling to Rs.94,32,23,851/-

In addition the Company had also incurred certain expenses for the above weaving project which had been capitalized. Given that the Company does not plan to pursue the project, such expenses amounting to Rs.4,62,00,730/- have been written off.

6. The Company is trying to obtain confirmation / reconciliation of such loans. The Company is confident of recovery of the loan amount from all the related parties.

7. One factory unit of the Company is operating at low capacity due to shortage of need based working capital as bankers have stopped providing working capital facility as their working capital accounts have become Non Performing Assets. As per valuation carried out by bankers, there is no diminution in the value of fixed assets of this unit.

Other observations made in Auditors' Report together with relevant notes are self explanatory and hence do not call for any further comments under section 134 of the Companies Act, 2013.
