3. Banks has increased in Rate of interest several times during previous years resulting additional burden of 4% to 4.5%. The Company weighted average rate of interest was 15% approx.

4. Prolonged Economic Slow down

All Banks agreed that all of the above factors are beyond control of Management and advised to get Technical & Economic Viability (TEV) Report from a reputed organization.

Laws alone cannot bring changes and transformation and voluntary compliance both in form and in substance plays an important role in developing system of good Corporate Governance.

Good Corporate Governance and Risk Management frameworks put in place over the years ensure a value-driven approach, sound business practices, fundamentally strong control environment, strong information systems, effective early warning mechanisms and real-time response system.
