leather cloth at a project cost of Rs. 121 lacs with the financial assistance of Rs. 46 lacs from APIDC.

The scheme envisaged installation of 'C-7 Calenderette' line at Nandigaon village, Sangareddy Taluq, Medak district to produce 5000 TPA of rigid PVC film. The Calenderette was originally imported from M/s Battenfeld Gmbh, West Germany, by M/s Bhubansri Plastic Indusides Ltd, (BPIL), Calcutta, under project finance from IDBI. Subsequent to
the import of calenderette BPIL expressed its inability to go ahead with the implementation of the project due to financial problems. Meanwhile, as the customs authorities insisted on payment of import duty on the equipments lying in the bonded warehouse, IDBI paid the import duty and took possession of the equipment. Since then, IDBI negotiated with several parties for selling the imported equipments
and finally the offer made by M/S Fenoplast Limited, for the purchase of the entire Imported equipment was accepted by IDBI in August 1988. It took almost two years for the Company to complete all legal formalities for shifting the Plant & Machinery from Calcutta port to Plant site. The Company has successfully implemented the project and
commenced commercial production from August 1993. As on date the total out standings to the financial institutions stand at Rs.1393.63 Lakhs i.e including an amount of Rs.332.16 Lakhs of funded interest, which was granted by the institutions. The total term loan utilised/availed by the Company amounted to Rs.1061.47 Lakhs. The difference of Rs.3.53 Lakhs represents unutilised IBRD line of credit. The interest was funded due to a delay in the implementation of the project due to various reasons such as project licence transfer, customs clearance, import restrictions etc.
