The new management noticed that the said BIFR Order dated 17th August 2007 was not given effect to and the audited Accounts furnished to the new management by the Operating Agency did not therefore give a true and fair view as per the provisions of the Companies Act, 1956 and SICA. The new Chairmans discussion with the Statutory Auditors and lengthy correspondence did not yield any new direction on the statutory compliances by the said Auditors; the said Auditors, in a rare indication of questionable intent and with scant regard of the statutory and legal provisions including the Accounting Standards issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, resigned as the Statutory Auditors on 2M June, 2008. Your Directors are therefore of the Opinion that the said audited Accounts for the year ended 31st March, 2007, in their present form, cannot be considered to give a true and fair view of the affairs of the Company as at 31" March, 2007. The audited Accounts of this year also would be subject to the correctness of the Accounts of 2006-2007 and 2007 - 2008. The new management has also been handicapped by the erstwhile promoters and Directors not handing over the Books and the Statutory Records of the Company. The Company has initiated the due legal process in this regard.
