was INR 1,177.01 crores compared to INR 1,162.21 crores during the previous
year.

Mr. S.S. Mukherji, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, "The
performance of the hotel industry is directly connected with global and
domestic economic growth. The global economic growth rate reduced to 3.5% in
2012 compared with 4% in 2011. The situation in India mirrored this global
trend. India's growth rate fell to 5.5% driven by lower industrial production
in core sectors, slow internal investment, reduced urban consumption and high
inflation."

Mr. Mukherji further added, "The flight kitchen at Indira Gandhi International
Airport, New Delhi opened in July 2012. This state of the art kitchen will
produce 15,000 meals per day to cater to domestic and international airlines.
The facility has been well received by the airline industry. The unit has
reported a thirty percent increase in overall business."

Trident, Hyderabad consisting of 326 keys is scheduled to open in June 2013.
The Company will manage the hotel.

The 252 key, The Oberoi, Dubai is scheduled to open in June 2013. The Oberoi,
Dubai will be managed by a wholly-owned subsidiary.

Mr. Mukherji concluded by saying, "The long term confidence on the Indian
Hospitality Industry is however positive."
