For the year under review, your Company earned Total Income of Rs. 5,514 Lacs as against Rs. 13,264 Lacs in the corresponding previous year. The Total Income for the year 2014-15 was significantly lower on account of not charging of management support service fees and royalty for the whole / part of the year.

The situation was further aggravated due to certain coercive actions initiated in the last quarter of FY''14, by the Rajasthan VAT Authorities (RVAT), in connection with all past dues which were earlier in dispute. This lead to intermittent stoppage of production and dispatches of cement Furthermore, liquidity constraints have also affected the smooth operations of BCL.

BCL has been sanctioned a restructuring package by the lenders in the Joint Lenders Forum for funding the sales tax liability. Lenders'' have disbursed only part of the sanctioned amount.
