The net profit incurred during the year was '' 27,216/- as compared to net loss of '' 3,33,514/- in the previous year. Due to recession prevailing in the market, the Company has not taken any new project and is exploring new and suitable areas of business to diversifying its activities.
The Company, being registered as Non Banking Finance Company, has been carrying out the activities of Financing & Trading in shares & securities. The business, being very speculative & volatile due to various factors, is avers to high risk. It also requires a high degree of analytical abilities and constructive research with long term investments requiring huge funds. It is therefore thought fit to give up these activities and to deploy surplus funds if any for investments that are of long term nature.
Keeping in view the present scenario and various regulatory requirements it is thought proper to shift the focus to carry out the construction & infrastructure activities which are permitted by the main objects of the company. As the country is going through the transformation process there will be good prospects for constructions & infrastructure activities and also keeping in view the enormous possibilities of growth in constructions & infrastructure sector it is thought proper to transform from finance & trading in shares and securities to construction & infrastructure activities.
The Board is of the view that to carry out these activities suitable funds as required will have to be raised from time to time.
