Gangotri Textiles Ltd. (GTL) is an existing listed textile company engaged
the business of manufacturing textiles by way of open-ended (OE) spinning,
ring spinning and garment manufacturing.

GTL was promoted by the Shri. Manoj Kumar Tibrewal, who started his
business as waste-cotton re-cycler and trader in the late 1980s in Kolkata.
Subsequently, in July 1989, he promoted GTL as a private limited company.

Later, GTL was converted into a public limited company in January 1993.
The first project undertaken by GTL was to set up 4 open end spinning
machines at Palladam Taluk in Coimbatore (Unit I) at an investment of Rs.4.76
Crores. GTLs Unit I became operational in August 1993. In July 1994, GTL
made a public issue of equity shares at par for an amount of Rs.2.10 crores to
part-fund the expansion of Unit I.

The second expansion came with the setting up of Sri Dwarka Textiles (Unit II)
at Avinashi Taluk, Coimbatore, which started commercial production in March

During the period 1997-98, GTL purchased an existing open end spinning sick
unit at Kolhapur, Maharashtra (Unit III) and managed to make it a viable profitable
unit. In March 2000, GTL acquired a 7 years old 16,800 spindle ring-spinning sick
unit (Palani Andavar Cotton & Synthetics Ltd.) located in Udumalpet, and also
managed to make it a viable a profitable unit. Later in FY2002, a modernization
program was taken up at the above unit. Post modernization, the unit is working
at full capacity from FY2003.

In the year 2000, GTL had ventured into the ready-made-garments (RMG) market
through its division - Gangotri Apparels, by launching its 'Tibre' brand of cotton
trousers in Coimbatore. GTL has slowly increased the geographical coverage for
marketing its trousers and presently the Tibre brand is present in the following
cities and small towns of the country.

Gangotri had a 100% subsidiary by the name of Gangotri Textile Processor Limited
(GTPL), which was incorporated in the year 1999. In the year 2001, the merger of
the two companies was proposed by their Board of Directors and was to be given
effect in accordance with the appropriate provisions of the Companies Act, 1956.

The Scheme has been passed under Section 395 of the Companies Act through
a special resolution passed at the EGM and GTPL was amalgamated with its
parent company, Gangotri, with effect from April 1, 2001. While the appropriate
provisions of the Companies Act, 1956 governing the above arrangment would
be Sections 391 394, the Company has completed the said arrangement under
the provisions of Section 395 of the Companies Act, 1956.

Subsequently the Company received a letter No. JP/F-35A/C/8952 dated April 1,
2002 from RoC requiring the Company to intimate the RoC about the completion
of the process and to put up a proposal to have the company's (GTPL) name
struck off under Section 560 of the Companies Act. Accordingly, GTPL made an
application (vide letter No. GTPL/2002/1240 dated April 12, 2002) under Section
560 of the Companies Act to strikeout or deregister its name from the register of
companies maintained by the ROC.

ROC has by a letter dated January 23, 2006 informed GTPL about its intention to
strikeout or de-register GTPL's name from the register of companies under
sub-section 3 of section 560 of the Companies Act on the expiry of 3 (three) months
from the date of the letter resulting in its dissolution without any further act or deed.
