DIRECTORS'' COMMENTS TO THE QUALIFICATION MADE BY AUDITOR

(I) The Auditors, in the point no.3(f), in their report, have made comments on non-provisioning of interest on term loan outstanding. The company has already achieved Onetime settlement (OTS) with majority of secured creditors and is further trying to reach one-time settlement with the remaining secured creditors. Further to this, the secured creditors have taken the physical possession of factory and have sealed the production facilities. Hence the Company considers it appropriate to make no provisioning of interest on these borrowings. The Auditors have also made comments regarding company''s going concern status. Considering the dispute of ownership on company''s assets between Commercial tax Department and Financial Institutions and also considering the management efforts to have One-time settlement of dues of Secured creditors, the management is hopeful that the company will revive its operations. Therefore the Company''s accounts are prepared on going concern basis. The Auditors have also made comment on not following the accounting standard with respect to the provision of gratuity on actuarial basis. The Company does not have any staff on its payrolls and as the physical possession of factory has been taken over by Secured Lenders, all the workers and staff have left the company. The gratuity provisions made for the left staff is sufficient to take care of their dues. Hence the provision of gratuity is not done on the actuarial basis.

(ii) The Auditors, in the Point No. 9(a), of Annexure to their report have also made some qualifications as regards irregularity in payment of statutory dues. The Company is passing through severe financial hardships and as a result there were instances of irregularity in the payment of certain statutory dues. The Company is mobilizing necessary resources to meet the overdue payments.

(iii) The Auditors, in their report also made qualifications as regards non availability of balance confirmations from debtors, creditors and Loans & Advances; and non ascertainment of impairment of assets. The Directors are of the view that the receivables/ payables balances shown in the balance sheet do not require any provision. And as the assets are in the custody of Secured lenders and their ultimate fate is not ascertainable, any change with respect to impairment, if arises, would be adjusted in the year of settlement.

REVIEW OF OPERATIONS :

As the Company was not enjoying any working capital facilities, support from the creditors, the company had to shift itself to Job-work. With the efforts of the management, the turnover of the Company improved and increased from Rs. 90.84 Lacs to Rs 133.30 Lacs. Further the company has not been able to utilize its production capacity to full extent due to persistent non-availability of working capital from banks and obsolete shuttle looms which are not viable to operate. This has caused severe burden on financials of the company and has made it difficult for the company to bear fixed expenses in full. Despite low margins, absence of working capital facilities, the Company continued to remain in operations in the last year.

However, in April 2011, the Secured Creditors had terminated the Custodianship and took complete physical possession of the factory. They have sealed the production facilities and have deployed their own security personal.

The management is trying hard to have a settlement with the Secured Creditors and exploring other opportunities so that the company can revive its operations.
