It now plans to implement the balancing scheme to improve the capacity utilisation and also diversify the product mix to cater to the highly competitive international market.The accumulated losses of the company at the end of 31st March 1999 have resulted in erosion of more than 50 of its peak net worth during the immediately preceeding four financial years making it potentially sick industrial company and has therefore decided to submit the necessary report of such erosion of net worth to the BIFR.As the Denim Industry is in the recessionary trend the company suffered a lot during the year also and still not recovered from the heavy loss.However the demand for new innovations like Ring DenimStretch Denim used by fashion designers are increasing world over.
