Annexure B


The Chemical Industry is essential for the economic development of any country, providing products and enabling technical solutions in virtually all sectors of the economy. The Chemical Industry in India is a key constituent of Indian economic contributory factor in the GDP. In terms of volume, Chemical industry in India is the third largest producer in Asia and sixth largest in the world.

Considering this fact, the Government is taking various initiatives for the growth and development of the sector. 100 per cent FDI is permissible in the Indian chemicals sector while manufacturing of most chemical products is de-licensed. It is expected that new initiatives are likely to attract large investments, both domestic and foreign, with requisite improvements in infrastructure and competition. The government has also been encouraging Research and Development (R&D) in the sector. Moreover, the government is continuously reducing the list of reserved chemical items for production in the small-scale sector, thereby facilitating greater investment in technology up-gradation and modernisation.

To restrict any further erosion of capital due to the losses the management undertook certain cost saving measures. The management decided to undertake a planned shutdown in FY 2021-22 of the factory for sometime so that the fixed cost of plant is saved. Certain workers/labourer were retrenched and base workers were retained for the plant upkeep so that as and when the plant restarts, the condition of the plant should be good for manufacturing.

As and when sales orders start flowing, the plant will be operational again and the capacity will be restored gradually.

The Members are further informed that, the Company has issued the retrenchment letters ONLY to workmen at the plant and all benefits due to them including retrenchment compensation under applicable labour laws have already been paid and the same is duly reflected in the books of the Company and in Managements view no additional provision is required in the books towards retrenchment of workmen at the plant.

Optical brighteners

Optical brighteners, or fluorescent whitening agents, are used to make plastics, fibers, coatings, inks, and detergents appear whiter and brighter. These products function by absorbing invisible ultraviolet light and re-emitting it as visible light in the blue range of the spectrum. These products are particularly useful to mask the yellowish cast sometimes observed in plastics and fibers after high temperature processing operations. They are also used in substrates containing pigments or dyes to make colours appear more brilliant. Optical brighteners are also used in the production of uncoated fine paper, particularly in uncoated fine paper grades containing high-yield pulp (HYP). Increasing level of whiteness and the HYP substitution in fine papers have increased the importance of optical brighteners globally in the recent years.
