ENVIRONMENT COMPLIANCE

As India''s economy continues to accelerate, the performance of both the environmental regulations and the regulator has come under increased national and international scrutiny and pressure. The increasing public demand for better performance by the environmental regulatory agencies is matched by adequate support to these agencies, conditioned on institutional reforms to increase efficiency, transparency and accountability; it would be unfair to expect substantial progress from the corporate and also unfair to solely blame the regulator for the lack of it. We must induct some concern and commitment in our profiting from Clean and Green Development Mechanism to ensure compliance of pollution standards.

We have started believing "waste is a precious resource kept in a wrong place". We further believe that "there is no waste as per the law of the nature". Hence from the solid waste like Iron & Steel from old scrap machines, we are collecting the raw material and we are manufacturing "Lean and Low cost" machines with a philosophy of "Easy to run, Easy to maintain, Easy to clean and Zero accident by meeting all the quality and productivity standard. Everything is done in house starting from design up to finishing of the machine. This concept of reuse of metallic waste is highly appreciated by CII, ACMA and international experts of our Japanese Collaborator.

By Regular training for workers and staff to prevent accident related to mechanical, electrical, chemical, physiological and psychological safety the Company has made "Zero incidents" as acceptable standard. Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA) is our primary focus to mitigate and prevent the abnormalities. Because of our dedicated and committed efforts in continual improvement of Safety, Health and Environment area, this year we have received two national awards from Ministry Of Labour and Employment for safety. The Company is a regular member of Haryana Environment Management Society.

The Company has started Green Vendor Development Programme (GVDP) in 2009-10. The aim of the project is to conserve water and Energy, Minimize generation of waste, terminate hazardous chemicals with non- hazardous chemicals, minimize carbon foot print, generate pollution prevention awareness throughout the plant and to achieve 100 per cent legal compliance. The Company is rigorously improving to create a better place for our next generation.

Company''s third plant located at Haridwar has also got TS 16945. These certifications help in continuous improvements, besides emphasis being laid on prevention of defects, reduction of wastes and variation in supply chain management.

TPM

The Company has taken up the journey of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) with the help of JIPM (Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance) Japan and CII, TPM Club India. Major objectives of TPM are to increase Productivity, to improve Quality, to reduce Costs, to ensure in time Delivery, to increase Safety, to increase profitability, to build Morale and to protect environment by formation of small cross functional work groups (PQCDSME) and to improve overall Plant efficiency. The other objectives are to procure and install maintenance free plant and machinery; and to achieve zero defects, zero break down, zero losses and zero accidents. In nutshell, TPM converts all the losses into Profit.

We have achieved Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance TPM Excellency Award "category A" for Gurgaon as well as our Manesar Plants in the year 2008 & 2010 respectively. We are working towards challenging the next level which is consistency level by the end of 2013. The Company had made the TPM declaration for our Haridwar Plant on 23rd March 2011.

Lean Activities:

We have clubbed TPM with lean manufacturing system. Our Company has conducted Lean Manufacturing System (Value Stream Mapping) Work Shop. We have converted lots of huge & complicated machines to Lean Machines & manufactured Lean machines in house.

Mar 31, 2012

The Directors have great pleasure in presenting the 27th Annual Report together with the Audited Statement of Accounts for the financial year ended March 31, 2012.

FINANCIAL RESULTS AND APPROPRIATIONS

The salient features of the Company's Financial Results for the year under review are as follows:

(Rs. In Lacs)

Year Ended Year Ended

31.03.12 31.03.11

Sales and other Income 167568.49 139075.53

Transfer to General Reserve 2000.00 1000.00

Surplus carried to Balance Sheet 6908.43 3590.03

OPERATIONS

The Company has achieved a record sales turnover of Rs. 167568.49 lacs registering a growth of 20.49 per cent vis-a-vis Rs. 139,075.53 lacs in the previous year. The profit before tax in the current year was at Rs. 8,589.88 lacs as compared to Rs. 4,793.49 lacs in the previous year registering a growth of 79.20 per cent.

FUTURE PROSPECTS

It has become clearer that Indian economy will not be able to achieve its GDP growth forecast of 8% or thereabouts, it might have the possibility to settle for a figure as estimated by IMF around 6.9 per cent in 2012 and 7.3 per cent next year, as a result of weak demand and higher interest rates, another flare-up of the euro- zone sovereign debt crisis or sharp escalation in oil prices on geopolitical uncertainty could easily undermine confidence and disrupt the improving growth path for world economy. With the passing of the crisis and some good news about the US economy, some optimism has returned.

As per Consumer Confidence Survey March 2012 conducted by Reserve Bank of India households' perception about current economic conditions and expectation for next one year has decreased in terms of net response; however, more than half of the respondents continue to feel that the current economic conditions and future prospects are favourable. Majority of respondents perceive that household circumstances have become better, though the proportion of respondents reporting worsening of current household circumstances has increased as compared with the previous round.

While the growth prospects of the Indian auto components industry remain promising, there are new challenges as we evolve into a critical part of the global auto ecosystem. For Indian suppliers, on one hand there is the need to maintain competitiveness in an inflationary environment and on the other they need to compete with the best in an increasingly uncertain global market. The increase in petrol prices may impact the sales of 4 Wheeler sales but subsequent proposal for increase in duties of diesel vehicles & increase in diesel prices in order to balance the fiscal deficit will neutralize the shift towards diesel run vehicles. Further, OEMs internationally are reducing the number of suppliers that they wish to work with. Thus, it calls for Tier-1 suppliers to facilitate up-gradation and scaling up capacity, quality, technology, people and even hand hold the Tier-II and Tier-III suppliers, without which it will be really difficult to sustain the industry's competitiveness in the long term.

Our existing customers have targeted to meet predetermined sales targets with around 10 per cent growth, with the support of new models likely to be launched both in 2 Wheeler and 4 Wheeler segment in the coming year i.e.2012-13. In brief, all customers of the Company are on growth path and Company is confident to meet their increased demand.

TRANSFER TO GENERAL RESERVE

The Board proposes to transfer an amount of Rs.2000.00 lacs to General Reserve, having regard to the requirements of Section 205 (2A) of the Companies Act, 1956. The balance amount of Rs. 6908.43 lacs (Previous year Rs. 3,590.03 lacs) will be retained in the Profit and Loss Account.

DIVIDEND

Your directors are pleased to recommend a dividend of 150 per cent (i.e. Rs. 3/- Per equity share of Rs. 2/- each) for the year ended March 31, 2012 amounting to Rs.1199.85 lacs in aggregate as compared to 125 per cent i.e. Rs. 2.50 per share in the corresponding last year. Dividend will be tax free in the hands of shareholders, as the Company will bear the dividend distribution tax of Rs. 194.64 lacs. The dividend, if approved, at the Annual General Meeting shall be payable to the shareholders registered in the books of the Company and the beneficial owners whose names are furnished by the depositories, determined with reference to the book closure from July 21, 2012 to August 09, 2012 (both days inclusive).
