Demand of industrial gases have direct relationship with GDP growth of the country.General downtrend in economy specially, in the manufacturing sector continue to affectdemand of gases of your company. In addition, cost of energy which is one of our maininputs has been steadily rising. It has not been possible to recover the higher input costfrom the market because of creation of excess capacity by the competitors in a shrinkingmarket. The results of the company have been affected due to combination of these factors.

Lower production of steel and sluggish general engineering activities in Eastern Indiahave had massive effect on volume of Oxygen sale. We have been able to maintain volume ofNitrogen very close to last year's level through our dominant presence in thePharmaceutical market. We have put on special thrust on other gases like Oxygen formedical uses and speciality gases.

In the midst of depressed macro economic scenario we expect improvement in economy inthe short term that would lift activities in the core sector and create a demand pull ofour products. Our products play very important roles in the growth of core sector and, onecan expect gradual upturn in production of steel, automobiles, power generation, oilrefining in course of time.
