OPERATIONS

During the period under review, the Company has restarted its operations by commissioning Cement Mill in the month of July 2013, after a long period of complete suspension of operations and has started dispatch of cement in the market under the brand name "JK Lakshmi Cement". During the period, the Company''s cement production stood at 0.95 Lac tonnes & the sales at 0.88 Lac tonnes. During the period under review, the Company posted a net profit of Rs. 234.76 Lacs. Actions regarding Pyro-processing Project have been taken up by the management and the work is under progress.

ECONOMY AND BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

Indian economy has been suffering for last 2-3 years primarily on account of global recessionary conditions, high domestic inflation and weakening of Indian currency. These factors contributed to the fall in Country''s GDP growth which stood at 4.7% in 2013-14, slightly above the 4.5% growth in 2012-13. Similarly, the growth of the Indian Cement Industry has come down to about 3% in 2013-14, which is the lowest in the last four years. Drop in cement demand was caused by general economic slowdown, low government spending on infrastructure projects, fall in construction activities, high inflation and interest rates, land acquisition and clearance issues.

OUTLOOK FOR CEMENT INDUSTRY & STRATEGIC IMPERATIVES

The Indian economy is expected to be back on the revival path with several new reforms expected to be executed by the new Government at the Centre. The recent presidential address in the joint session of the parliament has spread the news of ruling party''s intension to fast track growth of the country with GDP growth rate in double digit. Major demand drivers for cement industry are Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) of 3300 KMs with an estimated project cost of Rs. 800 billion, building of 100 Smart Cities, a far bigger expansion of National Highway Projects and Rural Housing Schemes of Government to construct approximately 20 million rural houses. This shall result in increased spending on the infrastructure sector which is expected to grow from 20% to 40% of the total Cement demand in next decade. Further, the Housing sector is also expected to show signs of revival in the coming years. Cement being a derived commodity would stand to gain with additional spending in Infrastructure and Housing sector. It is hoped that the Company shall achieve higher volumes with increased sales realization during the year because of bouncing back of cement demand.

INDIAN CEMENT INDUSTRY

Cement Industry which has been growing at a CAGR of over 8.5% till F.Y. 2010 had recorded a lower growth of about 3% in the financial year 2013-14. However, notwithstanding these intermittent years of lower growth, long term portends of the Indian cement industry are good and is expected to grow at 8 to 9% for the next one to two decades to meet the construction requirement of the growing Indian economy, both in the housing as well as infrastructure sectors.

SHARE CAPITAL

Pursuant to the Scheme of Rehabilitation sanctioned by the Hon''ble BIFR, 19,50,00,000 Equity Shares of Rs. 4 each were allotted at par to JK Lakshmi Cement Limited (JKLC) on 28th March 2014, whereby the paid up Capital of the Company has been increased from Rs. 40.08 Crores to Rs. 118.08 Crores. Consequently, the Company has become a subsidiary of JKLC with effect from the said date.

INTERNAL CONTROL SYSTEM

The Company has an adequate system of internal controls covering all financial and operating functions. These controls have been designed to provide a reasonable assurance with regard to maintenance of proper accounting controls, monitoring of operations, protecting assets from unauthorized use or losses, compliances with regulations and for ensuring reliability of financial reporting. The internal control system is supplemented by extensive programme of internal audits covering all areas of Company''s significant operations.

The Audit Committee of Directors of the Company regularly reviews adequacy and effectiveness of the Company''s internal control systems and the Internal Audit Reports and compliance thereof and monitors implementation of audit recommendations.

HUMAN RESOURCES

After resuming the operations, the Company started rehabilitation activities deploying the workforces on the rolls of the Company. With the introduction of various HR interventions we had been able to gradually establish new HR culture in the organization and start our operations effectively.

To name a few, we have been able to initiate HR initiatives afresh for developing learning culture and starting programmes on Emerging Leadership, Strengthening PMS system through SMART based KRAs, 360° Assessment, Launching of Quality Circles, 5S Activities and introducing Cross Functional and Self Directed teams. Besides suggestion scheme and structured communication process, various training programmes for employee development, both on functional and behavioural aspects are being organised in a structured way befitting benchmark practices.

With a view to develop belongingness amongst the employees and considering need of social, cultural and spiritual developments, planned welfare activities are being started in the plant. In this series "Sneh Bhoj"– Community Feast - involving all employees and their family members, is being organised on the first day of every year including other stakeholders which has developed a very cordial atmosphere in and around our company.

ECONOMY AND BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

During the fiscal year 2011-12 the country recorded a GDP growth of 6.9%, a sharp drop from 8.5% achieved in the previous fiscal year.

This shall result in increased spending on the infrastructure sector.
