MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS REPORT A. INDUSTRY STRUTURE & DEVELOPMENT

Due to one party government at the centre and initiatives like "MAKE IN INDIA" India's growth story got a boost with the rebasing of GDP data. Based on the new series, the Real GDP growth stands at 7.4%in F. Y. 2014-15 and 6.9%in FY2013-14 i.e. approximately 180 bps higher than earlier estimates. While the data shows that growth recovery has been swift and substantial, several on-ground indicators like growth in industrial output, credit and net tax revenues suggest that activity is still sub-par. Non-Banking Financial Companies ("NBFCs") in India, have evolved over the last fifty years to emerge as notable alternate sources of credit intermediation, especially for the last mile credit delivery. Regulation of the NBFC sector over the last decade and a half has been incremental. As and when risks have been detected, they were sought to be addressed. RBI has taken major step in F.Y. 2014-15 to align asset classification norms with that of banks ( 90 days norms phased in over 3 years). Higher standard asset provisioning has been put in place (0.40% against the existing 0.25% phased in over 3 years). The sector will report higher NPAs in the initial period, however, the sector as a whole will emerge stronger after the implementation of these initiatives.

The year ahead will be challenging on the credit quality front. However, if the government and private spending revive, partially assisted by interest rate cuts, FY 2015-16 could witness an improvement in asset quality and growth.

B. OPPORTUNITY & TREATS

A significant proportion of the Indian population still languishes outside the periphery of formal channels of financial services. This is both a challenge and an opportunity. It is a challenge, because India's financial architecture needs to be strengthened with urgency to reinforce the message of inclusiveness. It is an opportunity, because the NBFC sector can play a pivotal role in India's economic development by meeting the credit requirements of Indian corporate and a wide cross section of population. NBFC players have already focused on enhancing their financial products and services.

The Reserve Bank of India's enhancement of the credit limits through securitization transactions for both banks and NBFCs shall provide better opportunities to NBFCs meet their ongoing capital/funding requirements.

Growth of the Company's asset book, quality of assets and ability to raise funds depend significantly on the economy.

Unfavorable events in the Indian economy can affect consumer sentiment and in turn impact consumer decision to purchase financial products. Competition from a broad range of financial services providers, unstable political environment and changes in Government policy/ regulatory framework could impact the Company's operation.

C. RISKS AND CONCERNS

Your Company is subject to both internal and external risk. External risk due to fluctuation in interest rates, market volatility and decline in foreign exchange reserves etc. Internal factors including investment in specific projects, NPA's in portfolio, upcoming changes in rules and regulation governing the industry, contingent liabilities etc.

D. OUTLOOK

Today, India has vibrant NBFC sector and industry players have established an identity of their own, with presence in niche market segments. NBFCs have registered steady and consistent growth by maintaining a strong through-the -cycle operating performance, stable asset quality, adequate capital buffers and diversified funding profits.

Moreover, increased income in the semi-urban and rural markets is also expected to drive industry demand.
