 Review of Operations 
 
 During the year under review, the performance of the core activities of the 
 Company i.e. manufacturing and supply of packaging, printing and allied machines 
 came under severe pressure due to intense competition from the unorganized 
 sector, hardening of prices in the export market and lack of demand for 
 converting machines. 
 
 Innovation and introduction of machines having unique features and facilities 
 have been an ongoing process in the Company. Though the Company develops and 
 manufactures packaging machines of different design and utility according to the 
 market demand and customers' requirements, but tough domestic market conditions 
 have forced the Company to sell its superior quality products at low prices 
 resulting in lower margins and reduced net value addition as well as lower 
 turnover. 
 
 The activities of the Company with regard to acceptance and execution of 
 contracting job in the oil & natural gas sector could not garner any significant 
 orders from the overseas market mainly due to disturbing trend in the 
 middle-east countries including Iraq. 
 
 With the situation in Iraq showing no sign of improvement, the Company as a 
 strategy has shifted its focus to the domestic oil & natural gas sector and is 
 working closely with some established and renowned organization. The efforts of 
 the Company are positive and encouraging. 
 
 Absence of any significant contribution from its other activities including 
 general contracting job, higher overheads had an adverse impact on the over all 
 turnover and profitability of the Company. 
 
 During the year under review, the Company achieved a turnover of Rs.4184.55 lacs 
 including other income of Rs.245.76 lacs as compared to Rs.5476.65 lacs 
 including Rs.325.41 lacs of the previous financial year ended 31.3.2005. The Net 
 Profit for the year ended March, 2006 was Rs.183.68 lacs as against Net Profit 
 of Rs.617.19 lacs of the previous financial year ended March, 2005. 
 
 The Board on a careful consideration of the over all situation is not in a 
 position to recommend any dividend for the financial year under review. 
 
 The operational performance of the Company has been comprehensively covered in 
 the Management Discussion and Analysis Report and the same is deemed to be a 
 part of this Directors' Report.
