It has been expected that smartphones will account for two out of every three mobile connections globally by 2020 and India is all set to become the fourth largest smartphone market.

The broadband services user-base in India is expected to grow to 250 million connections by 2017.

India saw the fastest growth in new mobile-phone connections with 18 million net additions almost in each quarter, followed by China with 12 million new additions, according to a report by a reputed Swedish mobile network equipment maker.

Dear Members,

The Director''s are delighted to present the Twenty First Annual Report on the Business and Operations of the Company together with the Audited Financial statements for the year ended 31st March, 2014.

TELECOM INDUSTRY IN INDIA

AN OVERVIEW

Globally the Telecom Industry is in the midst of a transformational shift, driven by a huge surge in data traffic on telecom networks. A number of mobile operators are rolling out 4G networks across the globe. A number of wire line operators are rolling out "Fiber to the home", providing enormous bandwidth up to 100 Mbps to the subscribers. Users will be able to gravitate to fastest, most reliable and best priced wireless networks available. The migration of speed seeking data users to 4G may be accompanied by a rise in volume of voice calls on legacy 2G and 3G networks. Operators are offering very competitive tariffs to encourage more of their subscriber base to use mobile data services. 4G customers are likely to generate higher Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) than 3G customers.

Globally, the governments are making more spectrums available to exacerbate the spectrum shortage. More and more mobile operators are deploying emerging technologies such as HetNets to overcome the spectrum exhaustion.

India, the second largest telecom market by subscriber base after China, witnessed phenomenal growth in last decade. The 2G scam leading to cancellation of a spate of licenses, high competition, heavy debt and flip-flops on regulatory and other policy issues in recent years, have taken a heavy toll on the sector, hurting the profitability of companies.

India becomes one of the fastest growing telecom markets in the world. The unprecedented increase in teledensity and sharp decline in tariffs in the Indian telecom sector have contributed significantly to the country''s economic growth. Besides contributing about 5.3% to India''s GDP, Telecommunications alongwith Information Technology has greatly accelerated the growth of the economic and social sectors.

DRIVING BROADBAND GROWTH

Department of Telecommunication in India has planned to increase rural teledensity from 40 to 60 by year 2017 and 100 by year 2020. Moreover, the National Broadband Plan envisages 160 million broadband connections including 60 million wireless broadband connections by the year 2014. There are plenty of opportunities for the communication service providers in India to address this growth path.

Government of India has approved building of National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN) to provide connectivity to 250,000 Gram Panchayats of the country. The project envisages providing high-speed and high-quality broadband access to all village panchayats through optic fiber by year 2014 and progressively to all villages and habitations.

ADDRESSING AND RURAL CHALLENGE

India''s mobile service providers (MSP''s) have yet to tap the full potential of rural India, as large parts of rural India are in dire need of telecom service. Bridging the rural-urban digital divide is critical for India''s inclusive growth in financial, healthcare and education sector, among others. The challenge, however, is to deliver a mobile service to rural users, that is viable and profitable at the current low levels of ARPU.

Notwithstanding the economic progress over the last decade, the digital divide in the country continues to be significant. Expansion of telecommunication in the rural areas has been slow as compared to urban areas, with the former accounting for only 39.6% of the total connections. In addition to this, there is wide variation in teledensity from one state to the other. States such as Punjab, Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Maharashtra have higher teledensity in the range of 87% to 109% vis-a-vis states such as Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Assam having teledensity in the range of 44% to 55%.

EXPORTS

Your Company is exporting Telecommunication products and system to various countries worldwide.

The export revenue of the Company for the financial year 2013-14 is of Rs 12.38 crores (F.O.B). The Company has taken turnkey projects worldwide, which includes the survey, planning, installation, commissioning etc. We already have various agents/distributors/value added resellers worldwide

FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT

The consolidated foreign direct investment (FDI) policy of India 2014 has been announced by India and it has brought many far reaching changes and reforms. FDI in the licensee company/ India promoters/investment companies including their holding companies shall require approval of the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) if it has a bearing on the overall ceiling of 100 %. The investment up to 49% is through Automatic Entry

Route but beyond it, the approval of FIPB is required. While approving the investment proposals, FIPB takes note that investment is not coming from countries of concern and/or unfriendly entities.

Telecom is considered to be highly potential for investments and upcoming industries. The Investments in telecom equipment manufacturing is allowed up to 100% and entry route is fully automatic but subject to sectoral caps.

FUTURE OF TELECOM

The Indian telecom sector has proved to be an international success story. The success has witnessed a commendable growth over the past couple of years within overall subscriber base 951.34 million and teledensity of 78.66. the sector continues to leapfrog from strength to strength with the urban teledensity reaching 169.55. The market has been showing signs of maturity.

The telecom industry is geared up to drive the next round of growth particularly with voice based services. It is envisaged that the 3G and BWA are expected to reinvigorate the maturing urban market and would help in bringing balance growth of the economy.

The phenomenal growth observed in mobile services is yet to be replicated in broadband and other related services where the subscriber base is quiet low. Other areas on which majority of players in this industry are concentrating is the rural India where enormous untapped potential exists.

With the advent of new generation technologies & products, operators are looking out aggressively to roll out 3G & broadband wireless access services. The demand for telecom equipments has contemplated increased to cease such surfacing opportunities. Even government is also coming out with such conducive policies to support and give impetus manufacturing industries. With all around efforts from being an import centric industry, it is becoming a global telecom manufacturing hub. The road map of its growth is being travelled by setting up domestic manufacturing facilities by Indian Companies along with multinational companies.All the big players- Multinational Companies like Nokia, Alcatel, Motorola, LG Electronics, Samsung etc. have already set up their production facilities in the country and many more are planning to set up.

Dear Members,

The Director''s are pleased to present the Twentieth Annual Report on the business and operations of the company together with the Audited Financial statements and Accounts for the year ended 31st March, 2013.

TELECOM INDUSTRY IN INDIA

AN OVERVIEW

India''s telecommunication network is the second largest in the world based on the total number of telephone users (both fixed and mobile phone). It has one of the lowest call tariffs in the world enabled by the mega telephone networks and hyper-competition among them. It has the world''s third- largest Internet user-base with over 137 millions. Major sectors of the Indian telecommunication industry are telephony, internet and television broadcasting.

The central paradox inherent in the business of telecommunications over the past several years was at its most vivid in 2013. Having finally recovered fully from the global economic downturn and come to terms with the challenge of mass broadband and digitization, the industry had to contend with the ongoing issues of how to grow and become more profitable. We define digitization as the mass adoption of connected digital technologies and applications by consumers, enterprises, and governments—a revolutionary movement that is reshaping the sector.

The Indian telecommunication industry is one of the fastest growing in the world. Government policies and regulatory framework implementation by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) have provided conducive environment for service providers. This has made the sector more competitive, while enhancing the accessibility of telecommunication service at affordable tariffs to the consumers. In the last two decades, the Indian Telecom Sector and mobile telephony in particular has caught the imagination of Indian by revolutionizing the way we communicate, share information; and through its staggering growth helped millions stay connected.

The Telecom industry has witnessed significant growth in subscriber''s base over the last decade, with increasing network coverage and a competition- induced decline in tariffs acting as catalysts for the growth in subscriber''s base. The growth story and the potential have also served to attract newer players in the industry, with the result that the intensity of competition has kept increasing.

According to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), the number of telephone subscriber base in the country reached 898.02 million as on March 31, 2013, thereby showing a monthly growth rate of 0.67% resulting to overall teledensity of 73.32 million. The share of urban subscriber database is 548.80 million whereas share of rural subscriber base reached to 349.22 million resulting in teledensity of 146.96 million in Urban & 41.02 million in Rural.

The wireless subscriber base reached to 867.80 million at the end of March 2013 having teledensity of 140.67 million in urban & 40.23 in rural which results in a total wireless teledensity as 70.85 million.

The wireline subscriber base reached to 30.21 million at the end of March 2013 having teledensity of 6.29 million in urban & 0.79 in rural which results in a total wireline teledensity as 2.47 million.

Mobile Number Portability requests increased to 89.70 million at the end of March 2013. In the month of March 2013 alone, 2.87 million requests have been made for MNP.

The controversies surrounding the telecom sector, notwithstanding, Industry still present a positive picture of this area, saying the telephone density has increased and call prices have dropped to the lowest level in the world.

Telephone density in rural areas has increased 25 times, while India now has one of the lowest telecom rates in the world making phones accessible to the poor.

With an aim to provide connectivity to the farthest corner of the country, the government is also connecting around 2.5 lakh gram panchayats through optical fibre by 2014.

The telecom sector, which has been hit by controversies and court judgements in the last few years, has also witnessed regulatory uncertainty and hurt the investor sentiment.

NATIONAL TELECOM POLICY, 2012

The National Telecom Policy 2012 was encapsulated to adopt such telecommunication technologies which would offer viable options in subjugating developmental challenges in the field of education, health and employment generation.

- To enhance and continue adoption of green policy in telecom and incentivize use of renewable energy sources for sustainability.

TELECOM SECTOR: STRAREGIC REVIEW

In 2012, the telecom sector in India came under intense scrutiny due to a number of reasons ranging from cancellation of 2G licenses, ambiguity in implementation of key policy measures and dip in wireless subscriber net additions. Topping them all was the spectrum auction debacle. In February 2012, the Supreme Court of India cancelled 122 telecom licenses issued in 2008. The cancellation of telecom licenses and muted response to their re-auction has resulted in consolidation in the telecom industry. These events have stolen the limelight from the National Telecom Policy (NTP), the draft of which is hailed as progressive and encouraging for the sector in the coming decade. The past year induced negative sentiment in the sector and affected investor confidence. As a result, international interest in the India telecom market is gradually waning.

FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT POLICY

FDI in the licensee company/ India promoters/investment companies including their holding companies shall require approval of the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) if it has a bearing on the overall ceiling of 74 percent. The investment up to 49% is through Automatic Entry Route but beyond it, the approval of FIPB is required. While approving the investment proposals, FIPB takes note that investment is not coming from countries of concern and/or unfriendly entities.

Telecom is considered to be highly potential for investments and upcoming industries. The Investments in telecom equipment manufacturing is allowed up to 100% and entry route is fully automatic but subject to sectoral caps.

FUTURE IN TELECOM

The Indian telecommunication sector has registered a phenomenal growth during the past few years and has emerged as the second largest network in the world. On back of ongoing investments into infrastructure, the country is projected to witness high penetration of Internet, broadband, and mobile subscribers in the near future.

The fall in turnover is on account of cancellation of Telecom operator''s licenses, which has reduced the circles of various operators including Sistema Shyam Teleservices Ltd. (SSTL). Your company is the national distributer of handsets for SSTL and accordingly the hit to our top line was imperative along with them.

TELECOM INDUSTRY - AN OVERVIEW

India is the world's second largest telecom market in terms of subscribers. There are more than a dozen players in GSM/CDMA industry entailing a fierce competition thereby causing lowest call rates not only in India but in world.

The telecom industry was bludgeoned by the verdict of Honorable Supreme Court-122 licenses were cancelled. This verdict shook up India fragmented telecom market necessitating consolidation in this industry. It is also estimated that 75 million mobile users across the countries would be affected henceforth.

Strategic and structural changes like Spectrum linked to the market prices and being auctioned again which effectually would increase the call rates and post cancellation as ordered by Honorable Supreme Court, the existing operators seem to benefit.

The Indian Telecom Industry is one of the fastest growing industry in the world but the current teledensity is still low in rural areas.

The total telephone subscribers (including wireless and wire line) are 951.34 million at the end of financial year 2012, the overall density in India has reached to 78.66. The urban teledensity is 169.55 and rural teledensity is 39.22. As evident from above its important to note that there is a huge untapped potential in rural India.

The one billion mark also appears to be achievable. The penetration of internet and broadband has also improved with 20.99 million internet subscribers and 13.30 million broadband subscribers across the country. The future progress of telecommunication in our country is very encouraging as operators have started rolling out the wireless broadband networks in the country and soon the services are expected to be available in the entire country.

Broadband connectivity is increasingly being seen as an integral driver of improved socio-economic performance. The Indian Government strongly believes that all citizens of the country should have access to broadband and the transformative opportunities. Broadband services empower masses. They allow individuals to access new career and educational opportunities, they help businesses reach new markets and improve efficiency and they enhance the Government's capacity to deliver critical services like health, banking and commerce to all of its citizens.

Provision of Broadband in rural and remote areas will also help in bridging the "digital divide" and the widespread adoption of broadband in rural areas will have a multiplier effect over the long-term. It will help improve productivity in rural areas, help overcome the constraints of an inadequate transport infrastructure and overall improve the quality of life in rural areas. Given the significant economic and social benefits, expanding affordable access to broadband has become a high priority for the Government. The development of a robust broadband ecosystem will be the key to meet Government's objectives. It is a known fact that wireless is the quickest and most efficient medium to provide broadband services in the access network. To ensure broadband coverage, the Government has approved a project for creation of a National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN) for providing broadband connectivity to 2.5 lakh Village Panchayats. The 3G and BWA auctions that took place last year are expected to act as catalysts for enabling internet access to even the remotest parts of India. Indian Telecom market is on the cusp of an "Information Revolution".

The changing demographic profile of India has also played an important role in subscriber growth. The changed profile is characterized by a large young population, a burgeoning middle class with growing disposable income, urbanization, increasing literacy levels and higher adaptability to technology.

The telecom industry is geared up to drive the next round of growth particularly with voice based services. It is envisaged that the 3G and BWA are expected to reinvigorate the maturing urban market and would help in bringing balance growth of the economy.

The phenomenal growth observed in mobile services is yet to be replicated in broadband and other related services where the subscriber base is quiet low. Other area on which majority of players in this industry are concentrating is the rural India where enormous untapped potential exists.

With the advent of new generation technologies & products, operators are looking out aggressively to roll out 3G & broadband wireless access services. The demand for telecom equipments has contemplated increased to cease such surfacing opportunities. Even government is also coming out with such conducive policies to support and give impetus manufacturing industries. With all around efforts from being an import centric industry, it is becoming a global telecom manufacturing hub. The road map of its growth is being travelled by setting up domestic manufacturing facilities by Indian Companies along with Multinational Companies. All the big players-Multinational Companies like Nokia, Alcatel, Motorola, LG Electronics, Samsung etc. have already set up their production facilities in the country and many more are planning to set up.
