2012 - 2013 2.14 2.04 9.52 - -

During the year under review, the Company had incurred Loss due to reduction in average selling price per quintal of Sugar from ?3011.28 (YE.31.03.2013) to ?2763.39 for the year ended 31st March 2014 coupled with lower cane crush and higher interest cost.

Change in Sugar and Sugarcane Policy

The Sugarcane pricing policy based on Revenue Sharing Formula as recommended by Dr. C Rangarajan Committee has been delegated by the Government of India to the respective State Government for implementation. The Government of Karnataka has promulgated The Karnataka Sugar (Regulation of Purchase and Supply) Act 2013, which is further amended in July 2014. The provisions of this act have to be implemented at the earliest to solve problems relating to Cane Price Fixation.

The Government of India has announced "Scheme for Extending Financial Assistance to Sugar Undertaking, 2014", and under the scheme, the sugar producing mills can borrow Term Loan equivalent to Excise Duty paid during the preceding three years, for which the Government of India has extended an Interest subvention of 12%. The loan is repayable in 5 years with a moratorium of 2 years.

Current Year Outlook

The All India Sugar Production is expected to be higher than the Sugar year 2013-14. Therefore, the Sugar price would continue to be under pressure due to excess stock. The World Market is also depressed and therefore there may not be much scope for sustained export from the Country.

The Company is supplying power through open access and to State Grid under Short Term Tender process with some intervals. The neighbouring States like Andhra Pradesh, Kerala have also resorted to purchase power through tender process and pay a higher tariff. This will result in a higher average realization during the year.

The Distillery is also expected to realize better revenue consequent to the implementation of the Ethanol blending programme by the Government of India with the proposed increase in the percentage of blending from 5% to 10%.

Deposits

All Fixed Deposits and Cumulative deposits matured and claimed as on 31.03.2014 have been paid. At the end of the financial year, 17 deposits amounting to Rs.8,95,521/-, which were due for repayment remain unclaimed.

During the year under review, the process of manufacturing refined sugar was implemented and during the implementation period the sugar recovery was lower than normal.
