DIVIDEND

With a view to provide a cushion for any financial contingencies in the near future and to strengthen the financial position of the Company, your Directors have decided not to recommend any dividend for the period under review.

SUBSIDIARY COMPANIES

The Company has (02) two subsidiaries Tarini Sugars and Distillaries Limited and Venture Infrastructure Limited There are (02) two associate companies within the meaning of Section 2(6) of the Companies Act, 2013 (Act) ie: Tarini Infrastructure Limited, and Tarini Lifesciences Limited. There has been no material change in the nature of the business of the subsidiaries and there is no company which have become or ceased to become subsidiary, joint-venture or Associate Company during the year.

Further, a separate statement containing the salient features of the financial statements of subsidiaries of the Company in the prescribed form AOC-1 has been disclosed in the Consolidated Financial Statements.

PUBLIC DEPOSIT

The Company has not accepted any Public Deposit pursuant to provisions of section 73 of the Companies Act, 2013, during the period under review.

AUDITORS

M/s VCG & Co Chartered Accountants will retire at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting and are eligible for reappointment. In accordance with the Companies Act 2013, it is proposed to reappoint them from the conclusion of this Annual General Meeting till the conclusion of the 17th Annual General Meeting, subject to the approval of shareholders.

The Auditors have given certain observations in their Audit report as under:

(a) The holding company and its subsidiaries has made certain advances amounting to Rs. 575 Lakhs for which documents related to such advances given by the group companies were not available as the documents were impounded by the income tax authorities as mentioned in note no 29 of the financial statements. Further, confirmation from the parties as at end of the year was not found on records. In view of non-availability of related documents and other alternate audit evidence to corroborate the management's assessment of recoverability of these advances, we are unable to comment on the extent to which these balances are recoverable.

For the above observation, your Directors would like to state that the said parties could not give balance confirmation certificates in view of the fact that the Income Tax Authorities are conducting consequent inquiries with the respective Companies. However, your Directors are following up with the respective Companies for the Balance Confirmation Certificates and are hopeful to get the same as soon as possible.

(b) We draw attention to note 27 to Financial Statement regarding the investment made by amounting Rs.68 Lakhs in a subsidiary, who has suffered recurring losses and has a net capital deficiency. The financial statements of that subsidiary have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. These conditions raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements of holding company do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset carrying amounts that might result that the subsidiary be unable to continue as a going concern.

Though there is an accumulated loss in the subsidiary company, the said company viz. Venture Infrastructure Limited, has not bagged new projects or work orders due to recession scenario around. However, lot of bids are still open for participation and the said company will bag some orders in the near future and hence your directors are of the opinion that no adjustment is required at this stage and the same will be done at the appropriate time.

(c) We draw attention to the note 30 of the financial statements whereby the holding company has raised the money by way of Public Issue, during the year. Further, there has been variation in the utilisation of money, between the objects of public issue contained in the prospectus and actual utilisation, which was need to be authorised from the members. In view of this, we are unable to comment upon the appropriateness of variation in utilisation of money by holding company.

At the outset, your directors would clarify that the variation is between the Heads of expenditure envisaged. This variation has been necessitated due to the fact that the infrastructure projects, which are handled by your Company, require huge capital lay out and are capital intensive in nature which leads to long gestation period obviously causing slight mismatch with projections as originally envisaged and hence your directors would like to justify this variation.

(d) In respect of provision for impairment of goodwill, aggregating to Rs.66,65,123 arising on consolidation of a subsidiary, whose net worth is substantially eroded as at March 31,2015, not considered necessary by the management. In absence of valuation of investments in the subsidiary, we are unable to comment whether any impairment of goodwill is required.

The position with regard to the subsidiary in question has been explained to the reply for the observation at Point No. (b) above.
