Management Discussion and Analysis
As we had stated in our Directors’ Report to the Shareholders last year, 2011-12 was a year of severe shortage of supply of our pressure cookers relative to demand.

2• In our Hoshiarpur factory, production had been restricted during the litigation started by the Company to protest the Order of the Punjab Pollution Control Board. As stated in our report last year, “The final judgement of the Honourable High Court was delivered on April 16, 2012, in which it instructed the Company to apply afresh for the required No Objection Certificate and Consents and also instructed PPCB to decide the matter on merit within three weeks of receiving the required information from the Company.” The NOC and Consents were received by the Company through PPCB’s
Orders dated October 22, 2012, and February 13,...
