As mentioned above, your company caters to various fields. However, in Machine Tools sector, we have around 90% market share. At present more than 10,00,000 Systems are working in Machine Tools alone.

East and West India while Bangalore Plant is covering South India market. The 3rd unit i.e. Rajkot, is covering Guarat area.
4. Opportunities and threats :
GDP of India is growing reasonably well and thus all industrial sectors are also taking shape. Here Machine Tool, Power Sector, Steel Sector, Paper Sector are getting mainly affected. As far as we are concerned, all these sector are our backbone. Machine Tool, Power and Steel sectors are giving us a higher top line business. We expect the same in the next financial year also. As regards opportunities we expect power sector as well as railway sector giving us good opportunities this year 19-20.
5. Risks and Concern :
This is not limited to economic condition. It is equally depend on labour shortage, competitive market and threats given by new entrance as a competitor. We have 3 manufacturing units because of this reason. If one unit does not behave properly, the other unit will take care of the market. That is our strategy from the beginning. Keeping this into mind, after amalgamation of Minihyd and Ganpati one more unit has become into existence where you plan for small automotive components.
6. Internal Control System and their adequacy
The Company has adequate system of Internal Control System to commensurate with its nature of business ad size of operations to safeguard and protect from loss, unauthorized use or disposition of Companys resources. There are proper procedures for authorization, recording and reporting of transactions to the management. Systems and procedures exist to ensure that all transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in conformity with applicable accounting standards and priciples or any other criteria applicable to such statements and to maintain accountability for assets. The Companys internal audit process covers all significant operational areas and reviews the records regularly.

8. Operational Performance
This year operational performance of the company shall depend upon certain level because of GST (Goods and Service Tax). Besides this, national economic condition will also effect. As regards GST is concerned, it was more awaited and accepted by most of the manufacturing units. But the small scale units are finding it little difficult and cumbersome. The input coming to the company is less than the output tax. This is little confusion.
