MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
Textile industry plays a pivotal role in India''s economy. It
contributes 14% to India''s industrial production, 4% to the GDP and 17%
to export earnings. It provides employment to 35 million people.
Recognizing such a pivotal role the Government has been taking many a
steps to minimize the effect of economic slowdown faced by the industry
during the year under reference.
You are aware that in spite of acute financial crisis your Company has
been able to sustain its operations to avoid damage to plant and
machinery. The Company has settled the accounts of all the three banks,
namely IDBI Bank, Bank of Baroda and UCO Bank. The dues of IDBI Bank
and Bank of Baroda have been assigned to M/s. U V Asset Reconstruction
Company Limited and the dues of UCO bank have been taken over by M/s.
ASREC (India) Ltd. The borrowings from Asset Reconstruction Companies
(ARCs) are at higher cost and at best can be used only as a temporary
means of finance.
Market conditions for cotton textiles have not been conducive during
2013-14. On account of general economic slowdown and lower GDP, the
markets have been sluggish. As we have been working with heavy
constraints, our operations did not yield positive results. The
settlement of UCO Bank account has resulted in write back of part loans
and interest and is reflected in the accounts.
Your Company also attracts provisions of Section 23 (1) (a) (i) of The
Sick Industrial Companies Act, 1985 due to erosion of Net worth.
MANAGEMENT PERCEPTION OF RISK AND CONCERN
1. Agriculture in India is still dependent on rains for irrigation As
agriculture contributes substantially to our GDP, any downfall in agri
production affects economy. Monsoon this year has not been up to the
mark and large areas particularly in cotton growing regions have not
received adequate rains. It will have its impact not only on quality of
cotton but also on its prices during the current year. Consumption of
manmade fibres is still low in our country as compared to global
2. China has been a major buyer for Indian textiles - yarn and fabrics.
This year China is reported to have decided to reduce import of
textiles to encourage domestic production and this decision is showing
its impact on the industry
3. However, your Company is taking all possible steps to augment its
production levels irrespective of general economic conditions.
INTERNAL CONTROL SYSTEM

a period which meets its requirement. The system is reviewed
periodically to keep with the times and ensure optimal utilization and
protection of company''s resources. Audit Committee of the Board

values the Human asset of the Company. In spite of difficult situation
on operational front, the morale of employees is high and they have
