Based on the award, the Company started work on these projects. The
company was unable to achieve financial closure for these projects. As
a result, the projects were left incomplete and consequently the
contracts were terminated by the respective State Governments. Since
implementation had already commenced and was in progress, the Company
had already incurred a expenditure of Rs. 614,598,31 1 for this partial
implementation. On the termination of the contract, the Company had to
write off the expenditure incurred on these projects. Also, the bank
guarantees of Rs. 131,376,081 given for these projects has been invoked
by the respective State Governments which has been charged off as
project expenses written off.
During the year, customers have raised quality issues relating to
assessment and intervention segment of the products. A management
committee was formed to analyise and suggest the future course of
action. Customers in this segment would, generally make additional
improvements on the products sold to them and further sell the
upgraded/final product to their customers. During negotiations, these
customers have alleged that due to defective products supplied by CORE,
they have lost their contracts with reputed clients and have claimed
compensation. To avoid the legal claims and disputes in future and to
have continuity in overseas operations, the committee has decided to
write off the receivables of Rs. 1,769,918,589 and settle with
During the year, management has reviewed the carrying value of it''s IPR
in view of the adoption of Common Core States Standard
Initiative(CCSSI) in the United States of America (USA) where these
assets were substantially used. The CCSSI is an education initiative in
the USA that seeks to establish consistent education standards across
the states as well as ensure that students graduating from high school
are prepared to either two or four year college programs or enter the
workforce. Prior to the CCSSI, each state had its own education
standards and Company had the required resources and capability to
deliver the solutions. However with the change in regulations and
requirements, company has been investing in upgrading to the CCSSI to
deliver the solutions consistently and as per requirement. With the
CCSSI now in place, all the old products of the company that were
aligned to the erstwhile State Standards have become partially
redundant. Whilst the erstwhile State Standards will run parallel with
the CCSSI for a few years, thus making the old products still
commercially relevant, the company has, out of abundant caution, and
with a conservative view, decided to fully write down these products.
Management has made provision for impairment of Rs. 129,15,27,671
towards the carrying cost of such IPRs which has been treated as
exceptional item. The IPRs aligned to CCSI are carried at cost.
(b) Going Concern
The Company''s finances continued to be under stress which is evident
from decrease in sales revenue, increase in overdue trade receivables
and payables, salary arrears and arrears of statutory dues, over dues
(interest and repayment of borrowings) of banks, financial institutions
and finance lease obligations. To mitigate the financial stress, the
company has taken various steps including cost cutting exercise and
opted for Corporate Debt Restructuring (CDR) plan which has been
admitted and is subject to final approval from its lenders. Also,
during the year a promoter company has infused Rs. 512,080,907 as an
advance under the aforesaid restructuring Plan. The management is
confident of approval of the restructuring package of the loans under
CDR, improve the operating margins and collection from trade
receivables. Despite there being possible material uncertainty in this
regard, management is confident of meeting its financial obligations.
and hence, these financial statements have been prepared on the basis
of going concern assumption.
(c) Haryana ICT
The Company had entered into a contract with the State of Haryana on
25.03.2011 to install and maintain computer labs in 2,622 schools under
the ICT program. The project was completed as per the contract and the
maintenance part of the contract was in operation since last couple of
years. Due to various reasons, chief among them being non-receipt of
payments from the State Government, the Company had partially ceased to
service the contract during the year. In spite of on-going negotiations
taking place between the company and the State Governments to revive
the project, the Company received a termination order from the State on
23.04.2014 and forfeiture of bank guarantee of Rs. 295,000,000. The
Company filed a Special Leave Petition with the Supreme Court on
28.04.2014 and in response to which the Supreme Court granted a stay on
the termination Order and forfeiture of bank guarantee for a period of
3 weeks. The stay is currently in operation. The company believes that
it has strong case in this matter. Pending outcome of the legal
proceedings, no adjustment has been made to the carrying value as at
31st March, 2014 of receivables of Rs. 748,319,014 and of the fixed
assets of Rs. 1,002,144,968 at this stage, for this project.
(d) Trade receivable overdue for more than six months period includes
Rs. 1,379,392,375 dues from customers in assessment segment. Based on
the discussion with the customers, management is confident of
recovering the dues. The customers have confirmed the year end balances
and therefore no provision is considered necessary at this stage.
(e) Company had purchased computer equipments for ICT projects on
financial lease and has taken term loan from Hewlett Packard Financial
Services (India) Private Limited (HPFS). During the year, a
restructuring agreement has been entered into and a repayment schedule
has been restructured for both finance lease and the loan as a
consolidated amount. In the absence of breakup of future repayments of
lease and loan, the disclosures pertaining to finance lease obligations
has not been made.
(f) In the opinion of the Board of Directors, other current assets have
a value on realisation in the ordinary course of the company''s
business, which is at least to the amount at which they are stated in
the balance sheet.
(g) Advances, Trade payables and few trade receivable balances are
subject to confirmation and reconciliation, if any.
(h) These accounts of Core Education & Technologies Ltd. include
accounts of its two overseas branches.
