The Financial Statements for the year ended 31st March, 2023 have been prepared in accordance with the Indian Accounting Standard (Ind AS) notified under Section 133 of the Companies Act, 2013 (herein after referred to as “the Act”) read with Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014 and other relevant provisions of the Act.


The financial performance of the company for the year under review has mirrored the adverse economic condition which prevailed in the economy, affecting the textile industry in general. The Geo political tensions, due to Russia-Ukraine war, have impacted the export of Tirupur Hosiery Garments, resulting in excess supply of cotton yarn in domestic market leading to substantial price reduction in selling price of yarn. Adding to this, unexpected fluctuations in cotton prices, the Spinning Mills had a negative impact on the financial performance of the financial year 2022-23.


During the year under review, the Spinning Unit produced 4370.28 tonnes (Last Year 6514.85 tonnes) of cotton yarn and 1403.11 tonnes (Last Year 1918.25 tonnes) of waste cotton. The Spinning unit sold 4392.33 tonnes (Last Year 6469.61 tonnes) of cotton yarn and 1463.74 tonnes (Last Year 1875.41 tonnes) of waste cotton.

The significant drop in production and sale of yarn was due to sluggish demand for export of garments and yarn, resulting in low off take from customers / exporters of garments.

The Wind Mills with aggregate installed capacity of 10.65 MW generated 156.28 lakh units (Last Year 157.82 lakh units) of Wind Electricity during the year. There has been a marginal decrease in wind power generation by 0.98 % as compared with previous year generation.The power generated by the wind mills were utilized for captive consumption at the textile mill, except banked quantity of 28.94 Lakhs units (Last Year 6.06 Lakhs units), which got adjusted as sales to TANGEDCO and the value of wind power sold to TANGEDCO and included in other income amounted to Rs.59.62 Lakhs (Last Year Rs.12.48 Lakhs).

Due to lower volume in production of yarn, wind electricity produced for captive consumption could not be consumed in full. This also adversely impacted the profitability of the spinning division as larger quantity of wind electricity was sold to State Board, instead of being consumed by the spinning division.The overall sales turnover of the Company aggregated to Rs.15,846.02 Lakhs (Last Year 21,213.87 Lakhs).


The annual performance of the Company for the current year depends on demand for the yarn in domestic market as well as in export market at remunerative prices and availability of quality cotton at a reasonably stable price. The Company is expected to achieve marginal profit with the support of wind mills.


There were no material changes and commitments affecting the financial position of the Company subsequent to the end of the financial year.

There are no proceedings pending under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016. There was no instance of one-time settlement with any Bank or Financial Institution.


The Company has not accepted any public deposits within the meaning of Section 73 to 76 of the Companies Act, 2013 and the Companies (Acceptance of Deposits) Rules, 2014 during the year under review. The Company has no public deposits outstanding at the beginning and at the end of the year.
