During the current fiscal year (2019-20), we have taken steps to add resources in Hyderabad as well as Bangalore. This will help us rebuild the talent pool to offer Engineering solutions to our Global Automotive OEMs and Tier-1 Suppliers. Due to the concentration on products and creation of IP, the net profit for the current year has come down. Management is putting efforts to get the right mix of Products and Services in order to increase the profitability. Your management continued to control the costs without compromising the future delivery capacity.
The other income of Rs.61.23 lacs includes Rs.25.43 lacs of interest income. The management continues to put efforts to collect all the receivables from our customers.
