 Management Discussion and Analysis
 As mentioned in one of our earlier AGM Reports, the quagmire of
 litigation the company was constrained to involve in respect of its
 leasehold due to the lower court order against the Company and also
 of late due to the mischief of the 1st less or and the 2nd less or has
 also substantially contributed to the woes of the company. In view of
 the looming uncertainty due to the said litigation, the company is not
 able to make optimum use of the premises, as there is the fear of
 losing the further investment as may be made for modifications and
 renovations to the premises from time to time if the verdict of the
 Courts is going to be adverse. This is in addition to the already
 invested huge amounts on the premises over a period of many years on
 various occasions.  The Company is now passing throw a difficult phase
 as far as competing with the players in the field. As has been
 discussed earlier, the old model and out dated equipment is one of the
 main reasons for the lack of the generation of expected revenues of the
 company. In addition to this the severe financial stress being faced by
 company is also affecting the ability to keep the modernization need
 fulfilled. While this is the state of affairs in the operational front,
 Canara Bank has assigned its rights on the loan favoring Edelweiss
 Asset Reconstruction Company Ltd (EARC). On 18.03.2015 the EARC has
 granted a Negotiated Settlement (NS) of dues at a total consideration
 of Rs.250.00 lakhs payable in installments specified therein. In terms
 of the NS the company has paid an amount of Rs.25.00 lakhs as Upfront
 payment. The company has also informed EARC that since the revenues of
 the company are not as expected, the Board will be able to pay the
 settled amount to EARC only by way of selling the landed property
 belonging to the Company near Hyderabad. Accordingly efforts are being
 made to sell the land of Ac.13.625 cents belonging to the company in
 the open market and utilize the sale proceeds to clear off the settled
 amount to EARC. As the market conditions in the Telangana State are not
 favourable for the real estate after the division of the combined state
 of Andhra Pradesh, the company is finding it difficult to get the
 buyers for the expected sale price. However a call will be soon taken
 by the Board so that the amount due to EARC may be settled at the
 Once the EARC amount is settled, the company will be debt free and will
 be attractive for new investors to infuse the required capital for
 making the company profitable once again and also for taking up new and
 different profitable projects.  The Board is aiming to reach this stage
 at the earliest.
