1. REVIEW OF OPERATIONS

(a) Standalone Results

The income from operation on standalone basis during the year was Rs.82.15 Lakhs (Previous Year 167.79 Lakhs). The company's turnover has decreased by about 51.04% on standalone basis due to less than average performance in the 4th quarter of this financial year largely on account of less favorable business conditions. The profits have decreased by 78.63% due to low level of operations.

(b) Consolidated Results

In a tough business environment that prevailed in the fiscal 2014-15, your company has achieved a turnover of Rs. 85.75 lakhs which is 48.89% less than Rs. 167.79 lakhs achieved in the previous year. This was mainly due to decrease in the revenues from the Consultancy Services provided by the Company. The net profits have decreased from Rs 45.10 lakhs to Rs 10.39 lakhs ( 76.90%) on consolidated basis.

2. OUTLOOK & PROSPECTS

According to World Economic Outlook (WEO) Update published by the IMF in April 2015, the Global growth remains moderate, with uneven prospects across the main countries and regions. However, it is projected to be 3.5 percent in 2015, in line with forecasts in the January 2015 World Economic Outlook (WEO) Update. Relative to last year, the outlook for advanced economies is improving, while growth in emerging market and developing economies is projected to be lower, primarily reflecting weaker prospects for some large emerging market economies and oil-exporting countries.

The Indian Economy is reported to have achieved a growth rate of about 7.3% in 2014-2015 upon changes in the methods of computation. Though it was much better compared to a dismal performance of last year, it is yet far away from what can be termed as a glamorous growth rate of 10.4% achieved in the year 2010. According to the Economic Survey 2014-15, "Perspiration and inspiration, investment and efficiency, respectively, determine long-run growth. But the Indian private investment climate is clouded by the experience of the last decade. A combination of factors-weak corporate balance sheets, an impaired banking system, difficulty of exit, the deficiencies of the public private partnership (PPP) model in infrastructure-could hold back private investment going forward."

On January 30, 2015 the Central Statistics Office released a new GDP series that entailed shifting the base year from 2004- 05 to 2011-12 but also using more data and deploying improved methodologies. However, as the Economic Survey also opined "These numbers seem difficult to reconcile with other developments in the economy. 2013-14 was a crisis year - capital flowed out, interest rates were tightened, there was consolidation-and it is difficult to see how an economy's growth rate could accelerate so much in such circumstances. This growth surge also appears to have been accompanied by dramatic declines in savings and investment ratios. For example, gross fixed capital formation declined from 33.6 percent in 2011-12 to 29.7 percent in 2013-14 while gross domestic savings declined from 33.9 percent to 30.6 percent. The implication is that the growth surge in the crisis year of 2013-14 was also a massive productivity surge, reflected in an incremental capital ratio that declined by about 30 percent, and total factor productivity growth that improved by over 2 percentage points. The data show that private corporate investment increased robustly in 2013-14 which seems at odds with stressed balance sheets and the phenomenon of stalled projects"

However, amidst an uncertain global economic environment faced with uncertainty and volatility, the Indian economy has showed considerable resilience to the euro-zone crisis, and greater degree of preparedness for the possible hike in federal interest rates in the USA. According to the opinion given by several international financial institutions and rating agencies, it has been estimated that India is poised to be the world's fastest growing economy outpacing China soon.

It can be reasonably expected that the government's 'policies of reforms' together with several positive factors such as low rates of inflation, decrease in crude oil prices and fiscal consolidation and a more favorable balance of payments may help prepare a sound base for accelerated overall growth in India.

With the outlook for the economy improving, the Company sees growth opportunities for its business in the year ahead.

3. SHARE CAPITAL

There was no change in the share capital of the company during the year under review. The paid up equity capital remained at Rs. 800 lakhs comprising of 80 lakh shares of Rs. 10 each as on March 31, 2015. The company has not issued shares with differential voting rights nor granted stock options nor sweat equity.

4. DIVIDEND

In view of insufficient profits made by the company due to reasons discussed above, your directors do not recommend any dividend for the current year under review. A sum of Rs. 9.60 lakhs has been transferred to the Reserves. Pursuant to transitional provisions prescribed in Schedule II to the Companies Act, 2013, the Company has adjusted an amount of Rs. 5.23 lakhs against the opening balance in the statement of Profit & Losss under Reserve and Surplus.

5. FIXED DEPOSITS
