Some of these were due to the service and implementation deficiencies caused by the acute shortage of manpower and the company has had to consequently book these and other non recoverable amounts as bad debts."

OTHER MATTERS

As per statutory records produced before us and explanations given to us, our comment as follows:

(i) There were no Independent Directors in the company leading to non-compliance of the provisions of the listing Agreement as well as the Companies Act 2013.

The Company had already published the advertisement twice in the newspapers in the recent past, concerning inviting candidature for the appointment of Independent director. However, we have not yet received the appropriate candidature for the same. Also, the Company is lacking in receipt of director's candidatures, in quantum, for being appointed on the Board of the Company.

The reason behind the lack in receipt of director's candidature would probably be the concerning financial position of the Company and other ongoing numerous issues/cases therein.The company is going through an extremely tough financial position since more than two years and has suffered heavy losses.

In the backdrop of the above, the director's, independent or otherwise, might not find their position comfortable; and thus, the company is not receiving the candidature for the position as such.

We however, submit that the Company is consistently trying to appoint suitable candidature on the Board of the Company at the earliest and have already taken step in compliance thereof by publishing the advertisements as specified above and are continually stepping ahead for recruiting the suitable candidature.

We are endeavoring hard for the appointment of the suitable candidature and as soon as we find the suitable candidature, we'll make the appointment with no delays.

(ii) There was no Woman Director in the Board of Directors of the company, leading to non-compliance of the applicable provision. The Company has appointed a woman Director on October 30 2015 (in) There was no Audit Committee for the year. Due to the Sudden Resignation of all the Independent Directors, the company could not Constitute an audit Committee

(vi) There was no Shareholder's & Investor Grievance Committee for the year. Due to the Sudden Resignation of all the Independent Directors, the company could not Constitute the said Committee y

(vii) There was no Internal Auditor for the year. Due to the resignation of the Internal auditor the position was vacated however the company shall appoint the same with no delays

h. ) Non-Compliance of provisions relating to public deposit i.e.as per the requirements of Company (Acceptance of Deposit) Rules, 1975 a company has to deposit or invest at least 15% of its deposits maturing during the financial year latest by 30th April 2014. This requirement has not been complied by the company. Due to the tough financial position The company has filed the repayment scheme to CLBfor Repayment to FD holders, and the company is following the instructions of Company Law Board from time to time.

The Court has stayed this order subject to payment of Rs. 25 Lacs in 4 weeks out of which Rs. 10 Lacs was paid immediately and for the balance, the company has time till 17thune, 2015.This observation is incorrect, as, although the company had received the winding up order dated 23.04.2015 it was not a part of the period under review. Be that as it may, the Company had appealed the decision and received a stay order dated 18.05.2015 and has paid Rs. 45 lacs in compliance of the order of the Hon'ble high Court which is 9 lacs more than the actual liability. The matter is under consideration by the Court.

1. The Company has accepted deposits from the public upto July 2013.The provisions of Sections 58A of the Companies Act, 1956 and the rules framed there under relating to the deposits accepted, wherever applicable, have not been complied with. The company has defaulted in repayment of principal and interest thereon w.e.f.

This includes unpaid liability Rs. 404.44 Lacs for the current year i.e. 2013-14.

As per explanation and records produced, the reason for default has been due to heavy losses resulting to cash crunch in the company leading to bouncing of cheques issued towards repayment of deposits (principal and interest). This also lead to closure of the bank account from where cheques had been issued. The company is, however, making some payments towards the unpaid liability from the year 13-14, as per fund availability It has also come to our notice that due to default in repayment of deposits by the company some of the investors have issued notices to the company in order to instigate proceedings against the company before the Court or Company Law Board or National Company Law Tribunal under relevant sections of The Companies Act and Negotiable Instruments Act (against cheque bouncing) for repayment or winding up.

Further, as per the requirements of Company (Acceptance of Deposit) Rules, 1975 a company has to deposit or invest at least 15% of its deposits maturing during the financial year latest by 30th April 2013 i.e. in the beginning of the year in any of the specified assets which could be utilised for repayment of deposits maturing during the year but at no time the amount shall fall below 10% of the amount maturing before 31st of that year. Though the company had investments towards the liquid assets more than 10% of the amount maturing during the year 2013-14 but the same was not in consonance with the requirement of maintaining the level of 15%.

According to the information and explanations given to us, the company is not regular in depositing undisputed statutory dues including Provident Fund, ESI, Income Tax, Sales Tax, Service Tax and any other statutory dues.

In case of loans taken from other parties (other than listed in the register maintained under section 301 of the Companies Act, 1956) repayment of principle as well as interest has been irregular. The interest wherever provided are without deduction of tax at source.
