 OPERATIONS :-
 
 During the period under review the company achieved a turnover of Rs.
 3288.50 Lacs as compared to Rs. 5498.42 Lacs in the previous period. The production of GP/GC Sheets during
the period was 9318 MTS as against 18253 MTS in the preceding period.
 
 Lower Capacity utilisation, cessation of Sales Tax exemption, sluggish
 and highly competitive market conditions had an adverse effect on the
 performance of the company.  The cumulative effect of the above factors
 has resulted in net loss of Rs. 2337.92 Lacs during the period as against Rs. 2111.08 Lacs in the previous
period.
 
 FUTURE OUTLOOK :-
 
 The period under review had not been good for the Steel Industry which
 has witnessed wide spread recession in India and abroad.  As reported in our earlier reports, you are aware
that the Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction (BIFR) had ordered winding up of the company
 in Oct'97.  Appeal was made to Appellate Authority (AAIFR).  In July'98, AAIFR upheld the BIFR order.  The
company thereafter filed an appeal in the High Court which was not considered in favour of the Company. 
Thereafter the Company also filed Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court.  The Supreme Court has vide
it's order dated 19.07.1999, rejected our appeal.  As such, the Law will take it's own course whereby the
Company will have to be eventually wound up.
 
 FINANCE :-
 
 In view of the losses sustained by the company, its accounts with the
 Bankers are irregular on account of inability of the company to honour
 commitments under Letter of Credit.  The Bankers are not extending any
 fresh working capital to the company.
