Your Company is engaged in the business of media, publication services.

The Indian media industry is growing fast driven with increasing digitisation and higher internet usage. Even though print media is no longer considered the first option for many users it is expected that print media will still manage to hold on to its own position in future. Even though there are risks of price wars and margin erosion due to multiple players operating in the same region it is expected that use of innovative models and new technological advancement will help stimulate growth for this sector.

The rise of price inflation, the effect of the Russia-Ukrain war, the rise in crude oil prices with potential shift of foreign investments and challenging rate stability are some of the major concerns that the world economy is witnessing presently. Despite this global unrest, it is presumed that the domestic economy would be able to maintain its balance backed by appropriate fiscal and monetary policy and opportunities in the Indian markets will emerge much stronger during the financial year 2022-23.


For the year under review, your Company earned a Total Income of Rs. 402 Lakhs as against Rs. 237 Lakhs in the previous year. Company's loss after Tax of Rs.76 Lakhs as against loss of Rs. 322 Lakhs in the previous year as stated above. The exceptional item is on account of provision for deconsolidation of investment in subsidiaries.

The Company had taken loan from Exim Bank of India which has been paid off under the NCLAT order dated November 14, 2018 in connection with the IBC process of Binani Cement Limited. In accordance with the NCLAT order Ultratech Nathdwara Cement Limited (UNCL) has paid off to Exim Bank of India towards the loan taken by the Company, being the guarantor for the said loan. The outstanding balance payable to Exim Bank as per books of the Company was Rs. 58,061 lakhs. UNCL has recognised the expected credit loss on ICD balances amounting to Rs.114857 lakhs along with interest of Rs.9289 lakhs as per the audited financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2018. The Company obtained a legal opinion from a legal firm confirming that the Company has been legally discharged from its obligation to repay the above sated amounts. Based on the legal opinion obtained the said liability was written back in the earlier years. UNCL has agreed to not exercise its rights under or in relation to claim mentioned above, in lieu of the Company agreeing in favour of UNCL and 3B Binani Glass Fibre Sarl, to inter alia waive and assign its rights in relation to the Redeemable Preference Shares of Rs.5000 lakhs to UNCL. The Company has agreed to the same. Accordingly, the Company has no loan outstanding and the investment in Redeemable Preference shares has been written off.

Pursuant to the allotment of shares on November 17, 2021 by Nirbhay Management Services Private Limited to M/s Belgrade Construction Private Limited the holding of your company has been reduced to 9.8%. Consequently, Nirbhay Management Services Private Limited ceased to be a subsidiary of your Company.

Pursuant to the allotment of shares to M/s Mina Ventures Private Limited and immobilisation of shares of Edayar Zinc Limited (EZL), EZL ceased to be a subsidiary of your company w.e.f. March 04, 2022. BIL presently holds less than 20% of the voting power of EZL.

As per order of the Hon'ble NCLAT dated 14th November 2018, Binani Cement Limited (BCL) has been acquired by Ultratech Cement Limited under the CIRP process. Hence the logistics service to BCL has been discontinued and this has adversely affected the earnings. The Company is now in the process of identifying alternate business opportunities.


The Company would continue to focus on its present business activity. It is expected that in spite of several challenges, revenues would increase and even though it may not reach the pre-pandemic levels but will rise significantly.
