During the year under review, there were no operations. The recovery
suit filed by the lead Institution i.e. ICICI Bank Ltd., is still
pending before the Debt Recovery Tribunal, Mumbai.
Counter claim of Rs. 210 crores filed by the Company against ICICI Bank
Ltd., in respect of the value of assets as handed over to the Receiver
appointed by the Hon''ble Mumbai High Court is still pending before Debt
Recovery Tribunal, Mumbai. The ICICI Bank Limited filed an Appeal.
However Debt Recovery Appellate Tribunal, Mumbai has dismissed the said
appeal of ICICI Bank Limited, and allowed the Company to move its
Pending decision in the matter of company''s claim on ICICI (Lead Bank)
amounting to Rs.210 crores, on account of their loss and negligence
which resulted in a total loss of company''s most valuable assets which
had a value more than sufficient to meet the claims of all secured
and/or unsecured creditors. By failing to carry out timely maintenance
despite reminders from the Court Receiver, High Court, Mumbai and
others, the financial institutions allowed dissipation and ultimate
destruction of the two dry docks and other imported & indigenous
machineries. Therefore, the cost of fixed assets (net of relevant
revaluation reserve) less depreciation provided till the date of
disposal and value of inventories aggregating to Rs. 48.81 crores, as
intimated by DRT Receiver, has been deducted from secured loans. In
view of above, the management is of the considered opinion that no
amount whatsoever is due and payable to the Financial Institutions.
Amount due and payable to Financial Institutions i. e. ICICI, IDBI and
IFCI in terms of loan agreements executed by the Company with them were
secured by way of first mortgage by deposit of title deeds with the
lead institution of all immovable properties, both present and future,
and first charge by way of hypothecation of two Floating Dry Docks of
14000 M.T. and 2400 M.T. lifting capacity and all the other movable
assets (save and except book debts) including movable machinery,
machinery spares, tools and accessories present and future, which have
since been disposed of by DRT Receiver during the preceding years.
In view of the existing financial status, Board is not in a position to
recommend any dividend for the financial year 2011-2012.
Since your Company has not accepted any deposits under Section 58A of
the Companies Act, 1956 from the public, no information need to be
