Hence, an endeavor to ensure that all investors have access to timely, adequate and updated information, Company is giving disclosures on the below points under the said circular;

• Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the business:

Impact is limited to lockdown period. There may be marginal reduction in the demand from local customers.

• Ability to maintain operations including the factories/units/office spaces functioning and closed down:

Strengthening of controls is a continuous and evolving process in the Company. The management undertakes preventive and corrective actions, which are then horizontally deployed across the organization. During the year, such controls were put to test and no reportable material weaknesses were observed, either in framing the controls or their implementation.

In addition, the Company has constituted an Audit Committee, which oversees the various aspects of the financial and other controls, including Annual operating plans, quarterly reporting of performance, annual accounting etc.
