Loss for the year (199.35) (21.75)

During the year the Company has suffered loss of Rs.38.91 lakhs, before provision of depreciation and the tax as against loss of Rs. 17.72 lakhs for the previous year. Loss after provision of depreciation of Rs.1.22 lakhs (previous year Rs.4.03 lakhs), but before tax works out to Rs.40.13 lakhs as against loss of Rs.21.75 lakhs for the previous year. After provision for Income Tax of past years amounting to Rs.159.22 lakhs, loss for the year after depreciation and Tax works out to Rs.199.35 lakhs. There was no Income Tax liability in the previous year.

During the year under report the long pending company's applications to The Income Tax Settlement Commission for the accounting years ending 31st March, 1993,31st March, 1994 and 31st March 1996 were heard and disposed off. As per final order received, Income Tax payable ascertained worked out to Rs.159.22 Lakhs. Company has made provision for the same in the current year. Due to this provision of tax for earlier years, the loss for the year is very high.

In view of the loss incurred during the year, no dividend is recommended.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

Affairs of the Company were carried out on most economical scale and the expenses were contained to remain minimal.

As informed in the earlier years, Company had pending disputed Income Tax demands. Most significant event during the year was disposal of our long pending applications to settlement commission mentioned above. At the request of the company, The Income Tax Settlement Commission granted six monthly installments starting from mid November, 2011 to mid April, 2012 for making payment of Tax amount of Rs. 159.22 lakhs. As the income of the company has not been sufficient for past some years, shortfall in funds for Income Tax as well as day to day expenses were met out of, inter-corporate deposit (I.C.D.) placed by the company. To meet further shortfall in funds, at company's request, Premier Ltd., the promoters have advanced required amounts from time to time to the company to pay remaining installments of income tax as well to meet the day to day expenses of the company. As at 31st March, 2012 outstanding to Premier Ltd. on this account amounted to Rs. 101.57 lakhs.

Despite the Company's persistent efforts on recovery of the old dues, the Company has not been able to achieve the desired results due to slow process of the legal system required to be followed. Efforts on recovery front are continued.

Due to provision of Tax for earlier years and there being accumulated loss of past years the net worth at the end of the year is negative. However, with the settlement of Income Tax case, now it is possible to carve out a road map for future prosperity of the company.

RESTRUCTURING OF EQUITY SHARE CAPITAL -

As at 31st March, 2012 the equity capital of the company is fully eroded and net worth of the company is negative. It is necessary to restructure the capital of the company so as to make possible infusion of fresh capital in the company required for reviving the operations of the company and put the company back into normal business operations. As a first step towards this, your directors propose to reduce the face value of equity share from Rs. 10 per equity share to Re. 1 per equity share. This will result into reduction in share capital from Rs. 2160 lakhs to Rs. 216 lakhs. Reduction of capital by Rs. 1944 lakhs, will be adjusted against the accumulated loss. To augment cash flows for normal business operations as well as to achieve positive net worth, company plans for rising further capital, by way of a right issue or otherwise. A special resolution proposed for reduction of capital is included in the Notice of 50th Annual General Meeting of the members of the company.

FUTURE BUSINESS PROSPECTS

Your directors are determined and have decided to remain in NBFC business and to do whatever is necessary for that. The above steps will help the company in resuming NBFC Business. In the continuously growing economy NBFC Business has its own prime place. Your directors feel that the present set back in economy of the country is temporary and country's economy will continue to prosper in the long run. Your directors therefore are positive and confidant that your company's (a listed NBFC), future business prospects are promising.

In view of the loss incurred during the year, no dividend is recommended.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

The Company continued to carry out its activity on most economical scale and expenses are contained to the bare minimum required. Depending upon the progress of recoveries and availability of funds, Company shall undertake more business activities in future.

Pending disputed income tax demands, which are being contested, the Company is unable to raise any funds. Limited funds available with the Company are placed as Inter- corporate deposit. Companys routine expenses, legal expenses related to recovery disputes and income tax matters are to be met from this interest income and recoveries of old dues. As this income is not sufficient to meet the expenses of the Company, short fall in funds is required to be met by withdrawing the amount from the Inter-corporate deposit placed. This in turn results in reduction in interest income further. This is adversely affecting the bottom-line of the Company.

Despite the Companys persistent efforts on recovery front during the year, the Company has not been able to achieve the desired results, due to slow process of the legal system required to be followed. Efforts on recovery front are still continued.

The Company continues to have positive net worth at the end of the year.

Companys routine expenses, legal expenses related to recovery disputes and income tax matters are to be met from this interest income and recoveries of old dues.
