From ten million tons production in 2010, the Indian Paper industry is expected to double its capacity by 2020. At nearly 90 million tons/year, China is today the largest paper & Board producer in the world. Easy availability of raw material and good infrastructure can catapult the growth of the Indian paper industry. A buoyant consumer market and a good export growth can increase demand for packaging paper phenomenally. Major expansions continue to be planned and implemented by the large mills in India. Since the last three years, exports of our products have been growing well. Expecting this to continue, we are preparing to add capacity through a new expansion cum modernisation initiative. For our new line of SSB Forming fabrics, we continue to seek assistance from our on-going collaborators M/s Albany International Corp., U.S.A. To maintain its leadership position, your Company is pursuing TPM activities very seriously and expects to gain TPM compliance soon.

DIRECTORS

P Jatia left for his heavenly abode on 2Sth May 2012 and our Director Mr. K. K. Khemka on 1Sth October 2011. Their contribution in growth of the Company was enormous.
