During the period the Company approached its lenders inter alia for Corporate Debt Restructuring (CDR) its debts to enable it to resume operations. We made serious efforts to comply with the strict norms and conditions of CDR cell as per their Letter of Approval dated 17th May, 2012. However inspite of making serious efforts, the CDR scheme could not be put into effect which made restarting the operations no longer possible.

The Company lost its key personnel and employees. Due to its inability to pay for operating expenses, the labour and employees were not paid and the Company had no power to run its computers and systems. This prevented the company to even access its data and records from its offices and factory, thereby halting processing its accounts.
