The developments over the last year in major economies of the world have not been encouraging though the concerns about a crisis have abated somewhat since dawn of 2012. There is an apprehension that the process of global economic recovery that began after the financial crisis of 2008 is beginning to stall and the sovereign debt crisis in the euro zone area may persist for a while. The US economy has shown some improvement but economic growth remains sluggish, despite extensive use of both fiscal and monetary tools. Unemployment situation in advanced economies in general, and the peripheral economies of the euro zone in particular, which had deteriorated in the wake of global crisis has not improved. At this juncture, in the short run, the global economy is being buffeted by multiple shocks emanating from various sources, economic, social and geopolitical. A worsening of the conditions in the Middle-East and North Africa could derail global growth. The lower global growth forecast by IMF for most countries in 2012 perhaps reflects the repeated bouts of uncertainty arising from these diverse sets of factors. However, the global financial crisis is no longer the major force dictating the pace of economic activity in the developing countries. The BRICS nations with China in the lead role are gaining decisive force in the global economic arena. The global growth for 2012 and 2013 is expected to be lower than earlier anticipated since the emerging and developing economies are also showing signs of slowdown in growth.

In line with this, growth in India is slowing down. The Indian economy was 5.3% in 2011-12 in terms of gross domestic product as compared to 8.4% in 2010-11, which shows weakening of the growth. Due to the crisis in the euro-zone area has lead to the slowdown and the global economic and financial conditions are likely to remain under pressure during the current fiscal year.

2. DIVIDEND

To conserve the resources of the Company for further expansion of its activities including development of real estate, the Board of Directors have decided not to recommend dividend for the year under review.

3. OPERATION

The Company also started its trading activities in Aluminium and posted sales of Rs.16,749,530/- compared to Rs. Nil in the previous year. However, sales of Zinc has reduced to Rs.264,003,592/- compared to Rs. 293,834,313/- in previous year. For the year ended 31st March, 2012 the company has posted net profit after tax of Rs.25,324,804/- compared to net Profit of Rs. 30,852,554/- in the previous year. The profit has been lower as compared to the previous year due to reduced sales and all other expenses have led to reduction in profit by 17.92%..
