Financial Technologies (India) Ltd. Company History and Annual Growth Details


The Company was incorporated on 12th April, 1988.


The Company set up an unit in the Madras Export Processing Zone, which
was ready for commercial production on 7th February, 1990. The Company
had a technical and financial collaboration with Worldwide Technologies
Inc., USA which came to an end on 19.10.1990.


For sale in the Indian market, the Company set up an unit in Pallavaram
in September, 1991 and has also set up yet another factory at
Reddiarpalayam, Pondicherry. Thus, the Company had three manufacturing
facilities at:

1. Madras Export Processing Zone - For manufacturing of Modems for
export (capacity: 1250 modems per shift per month).

2. Pallavaram at Madras - For manufacture of Modems for the Indian
market (capacity: 300 modems per shift per month).

3. Reddiarpalayam at Pondicherry - For manufacture of Modems for the
Indian market (capacity: 300 modems per shift per month).

All the above manufacturing facilities are for the manufacturing of the
same products, modems and other data communication products. the
manufacturing facilities at the Madras Export Processing Zone have been
idle from the time of inauguration of the factory due to paucity of
export orders. The Madras factory has subsequently been taken over by
Complete Business solutions (India) Pvt. Ltd. (formerly known as Total
Business Solutions India) Pvt. Ltd.). Complete Business Solutions
(India) Pvt. Ltd. has taken over the export obligation of the Company.
MEPZ has given the permission for the transfer of the factory to
Complete Business Solutions (India) Pvt Ltd. and is in the process of
debonding the Company's materials.


The Company has set up facilities at Pondicherry which has become
operational from 1.10.1994 as all the relevant approvals, i.e. excise
clearance, factory registration certificate, etc. have been received.

All these factories are in rented premises. One of the objectives of
the public issue is to acquire land and construct building at
Pondicherry, so that the factory at Pondicherry can be relocated to
owned premises. The Company is in the process of identifying a site
for the proposed factory.

Complete Business Solutions (India) Pvt Ltd was converted into a public
limited company in Aug.'94


In Feb.'95, it made a Rs 2.25-cr public offering, at a premium of Rs
20, to mobilise funds for expansion and re-location of existing
manufacturing facilities and acquisition of infrastructure facilities.

all stock exchanges, branch connectivity and greater visibility of
E-mail operations will give a great boost to the company's products.

networking products such as terminal servers, print servers, X-25 pads
and routers. It has been appointed as the national distributor for
Wipro products. It is also negotiating with a foreign company to
represent video conferencing products and ISDN products.


During 1996-97, the modem market has moved by 33.6Kbps which is
presently highest speed as per approved standards and very soon 56Kbps
will hit the market. The company has also developed a 6U Modem Card and

products and peripherals in Information Technology field with a
turnover of Rs.160 crores for the year end 31st March, 2000 and hence
