The management review/explanation to above observations are given below:

1. The Company had opted and provided the facility of E-voting to all the members of the Company. In view of cost control and green governance (less paper work) the ballot paper was not provided to the members.

2. While printing the Annual Report, mistakenly old format was printed. But the contents of the proxy form were as nearly as same with the new format of the proxy form.

3. As per the old Companies Act, 1956, there were four independent Directors as recognised by the Board and same was intimated to Stock Exchange also. But as per the new Companies Act, 2013, Company recognised two Directors as Independent Directors and file form MGT 14 in respect of these two Directors. The other two Directors are still Independent Directors and they are not have any pecuniary interest in the management of the Company. The Company has taken steps to recognise remaining two Directors as Independent Directors and will receive the declaration of their independence and accordingly necessary form will be filed with RoC. The Company's management/ Board have not taken any such major decision during this tenure that will affect the Company's state of affairs.

4. The RoC issued one notice in respect of transfer of Unpaid/unclaimed dividend to Investor Protection and Education Fund. Accordingly the company has transferred the balance of unpaid dividend to IEPF. The Unpaid/unclaimed dividend amount was deposited in separate Bank Account and list of members was given to said Bank. The amount of unpaid/unclaimed Dividend was transferred as per the list provided by the Bank and the remaining amount was withdrawn. The amount deposited in the said account was more than the dividend payable.

5. DIN of the Directors was not printed inadvertently on some of the documents. These documents were also not so much important.

6. In respect of appointment of Internal Auditor and not having Vigil Mechanism, the Company's production activity has been fully stopped from the year 2006-07. There is no sale or purchase activity since then. Only administrative activity is continued at Registered Office of the Company. The present size of the working is limited only up to administrative work and necessary staff is maintained by the Company. Hence no Internal Auditor nor Vigil Mechanism was enforced. But the Company is having sufficient capacity and work force to handle the work properly.

7. In respect of point Nos. 6, 7, 8, 9, Management explained that the Company has not appointed Company Secretary in full time employment nor appointed Chief Financial Officer, because the Company is sick Company as declared by the Hon'ble BIFR and the production activity is also stopped since the financial year 2006-07. The scope of financial transactions is very limited and small in size. The Company has appointed one person as Manager to look after the financial transactions of the Company. Also the Company has made necessary arrangement to look after the secretarial compliance work on regular basis.

8. The Company has taken unsecured loans from Directors for the purpose of meeting the day to day and administrative expenses.

9. The Company's production has been stopped since financial year 2006-07 and manufacturing activity or related work is also discontinued. Hence there is no as such compliance relating to pollution control.

10. The Company has completed the procedure of renewal of Factory and other related licenses. But the concerned department has not renewed the license stating there is no production activity and will be renewed as soon as the production activity will commence.

11.
