The proposal is being actively pursued by the UB Group for the revival of the company.In recognition of the vastly improved operations and financial health in the last five years the BIFR in its order dated Decemeber 1 2000 circulated a revival scheme for your company. The scheme is based on the acceptance of the offer of onetime settlement to all the lenders.
