"The figures for the financial year 2014-15 is not comparable with the previous financial year due to the fiscal 2014-15 being for twelve months as against six months in previous financial year, suspension of work at Uttarpara plant since May 24, 2014 and divestment of erstwhile Chennai car plant effective March 30, 2014" the company said.

As the accumulated losses of the company at end of financial year ended September 2013 exceeded its entire net worth, the company has made reference to the Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction (BIFR), it added. Hindustan Motors is not producing the Ambassador car anymore, as work at the company's Uttarpara plant has been
suspended since May 24, 2014.
