PERFORMANCE:

During the year company has achieved a turnover of Rs. 1219.10 Lacs as against the in the previous year at Rs. 1028.90 Lacs. However, as the market was very volatile, therefore, trading in equity derivatives not resulted in gain during the year and it affected profitability for the year.

ECONOMIC OUTLOOK:

The Indian economy has come through with resilience and strength in the year 2010-11. Swift and broad based growth has put the economy on to its pre-crisis growth trajectory. Dynamism in the rural economy due to scaled up flow of resources to rural areas has added to overall economic growth. Due to a better than average monsoon, agricultural sector performed reasonably well compared to previous year. Services sector also clocked robust performance.

KEY RISK FACTORS:

Key risk to economic growth forecasts come from inflation. WPI inflation accelerated from 11.04% in March 2010 to a high of 11.23% in April 2010 and continued around similar levels till June 2010. Inflation continued around 8% to 9% thereafter till date. Despite the Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) monthly assessment of WPI inflation coming down below 7.5% by March 2011, it read at 8.98% leading to a perception that RBI will continue rate hikes during the current fiscal as well.

MONETARY POLICY HIGHLIGHTS:

In the RBI Monetary Policy issued on May 3, 2011, RBI strongly expressed its view that controlling inflation is imperative to sustaining growth over the medium-term. As such, RBI signaled that the conduct of monetary policy will continue to condition and contain perceptions of inflation in the range of 4.0-4.5% to be in line with the medium-term objective of 3.0% inflation consistent with India's broader integration into the global economy. Instead of its earlier calibrated approach to fighting inflation, RBI took a large step hiking key policy rates by 50 basis points. Accordingly, the Repo and Reverse Repo rates have moved up to 7.25% and 6.25% respectively.

DIVIDEND:

The Board, for the year ended 31st March, 2011 in view of operating loss regret to declare any dividend for the year.

PERFORMANCE:

ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT

After witnessing slowdown in 2008-09, the global economy is slowly regaining with the large unprecedented interventions by governments. The speed of recovery, however, remains significantly divergent. However, the global economy faces several challenges such as high levels of unemployment, which are close to 10 per cent in the US and the Euro area. Despite signs of renewed activity in manufacturing and initial improvement in retail sales, the prospects of economic recovery in Europe are clouded by the acute fiscal strains in some countries.



INDIAN ECONOMY

During 2009-10, the Indian economy showed resilience with a broad based recovery. This was possible due to a rebound in industrial output, better prospects for the Rabi crop and continuing resilience of the services sector.

INDUSTRIAL SECTOR

The industrial sector recovered with the Index of Industrial Production (IIP) registering double digit growth during October 2009 February 2010 and IIP was at 15.1 per cent in February 2010. The growth was mainly driven by the manufacturing sector, with a weighted contribution of 88.8 per cent, higher than its weight of 79.4 per cent in the IIP.

EXTERNAL SECTOR

Indias external sector witnessed improvement with the recovery seen in the global economy as reflected in the turnaround in exports, buoyancy in capital inflows and further accretion to the countrys foreign exchange reserves. Exports recovered from 12 months of consecutive decline and posted an average growth of 20.5 per cent during November 2.009 February 2010. Imports also turned around and exhibited an average growth of about 43.0 per cent during December 2009-February 2010, mirroring the impact of strong recovery in growth.

EQUITY MARKETS

The activity in the primary segment of the domestic capital market displayed signs of revival in 02 and 03 of 2009-10. Stock prices displayed a continuous upward momentum throughout the year, except for some occasional corrections during the last two quarters caused by Dubai World default and the Greek

sovereign debt concerns. Following the optimism on account of measures announced in the Union Budget 2010-11 such as the roadmap for fiscal consolidation and PSU divestment, stock prices recorded further gains. As at end March 2010, the Sensex and the Nifty both registered gains of 81 per cent and 74 per cent, to close at 17528 and 5249 respectively.

The gains in stock prices were also led by the FN investments, while at the same time mutual funds turned net sellers. Flls made net purchases of US$23.7 billion in the Indian equity market during 2009- 10 (net sales of US$ 10.4 billion in 2008-09), while the mutual funds net sales during 2009-10 amounted to Rs. 10,512 crore(net purchases of Rs. 6,985 crore in 2008-09).
