 During the year under review, due to the overall decrease in profits
 and provision for diminution of investment, no dividend is recommended
 by the Directors for this year.
 The performance of your company was affected due to the bursting of the
 dot COM bubble in the United States of America.  During the boom
 period, ITIL had not only invested heavily in its own dot COM ventures,
 but also had many other dot COM companies as its clients. As the
 venture capitalists started backing off from these ventures, the fund
 flow completely stopped and ITIL had no option but to abandon the
 projects midway.  Most of these dot COM clients of ITIL do not even
 exist now.  Apart from bringing down the revenues of companies like
 ITIL heavily, large-scale retrenchments and closures across the globe
 has also impacted the future prospects as the market got flooded with
 consultants, who are willing to pick up a job at any price.
 One of the major cost-cutting measures resorted to by most of the
 organizations worldwide was a majortoning down of their IT budgets.
 Some of ITIL's customers reduced their IT expenditure in the current
 fiscal heavily. Some projects have been scrapped altogether, while
 others have been downsized or delayed.
 The on-going price war has brought down the profitability of the Indian
 IT ventures considerably.  AII IT companies, big or small, have been
 affected by this slump and are out in the cut-throat market with
 unheard of price tags. At ITIL, we have been forced to reduce our
 rates substantially, and thus, despite all our cost-cutting measures,
 we have seen a major dip in profitability.
 We are seeing a large number of multinationals, including some of
 ITIL's existing clients in the domestic market, setting up their own
 offices in India to tap the large pool of talent available here, to
 serve their IT needs. This has dried up the requirements from these
 companies. The remaining domestic market, which had started looking at
 IT investment seriously, has again adopted a wait-and-watch approach
 towards the new technological advancements.
 Apart from the cut-throat competition from their peers in the Indian
 market, the Indian IT companies are facing tough competition from some
 other countries as well. Countries like China, Philippines, Russia and
 others are already making major headway as potential IT power houses.
 As such, labor cost in these countries is less than in India and we
 shall be unable to fight the price war with them. The only way we can
 retain our leadership position is by positioning ourselves at the
 higher end of the services market. ITIL is rapidly therefore
 positioning itself in the up market value chain.
 ITIL has taken the adverse economic scenario as an opportunity to
 realign the business goals and make itself lean and flexible.  The
 operations have been put under microscope to assess their viability in
 view of the emerging trends globally. Development centers set up at
 Goa, Calcutta and Pune for serving the growing e-commerce market have
 either been downsized or merged with the Delhi headquarter for a better
 financial and operational control.
 In its continuous endeavour to look at ways and means to move up the
 value chain, ITIL has concentrated on building its own Intellectual
 Property as well as to get into hitherto uncharted waters like
 Consulting, Systems Integration, Managed Services, and so on.
 Unlike most of the other Indian IT companies, ITIL has been striving to
 build domain knowledge of various sectors and at the same time get into
 more end-to-end projects rather than just body shop. Research shows
 that there shall continue to be a vast gap between demand and supply
 and ITIL is positioned to leverage this opportunity.
 Software Development Services
 Your Company provides on-site and offshore software development
 services to its clients worldwide. It has successfully executed several
 projects for both existing and new clients in the current year.
 Your Company has major plans for the next year. It plans to expand its
 business opportunities and reach into other countries with opening of
 new offices in the US, Middle East, and Australian nations. These
 offices would take care of the marketing activities of the Company's
 on-site and offshore software development capabilities.
 Your Company has already started marketing its capabilities and
 services to explore the new technological areas. ITIL's advantage would
 be the strengths in the high-end technological areas, and the company
 would capitalize on those strengths to procure business in both the
 existing and new technological areas.
 Product Development
 Your Company has dedicated teams, constantly involved in the
 development of new software products for Palmtop, Handheld and Desktop
 PCs. Currently the Company's products are sold only through its
 websites but it is moving towards providing off-the-shelf products,
 especially in the area of Mobile Computing, SMS and WAP.
 Managed Services
 This is a completely new area your Company has forayed into.  Managing
 and monitoring mission-critical IT operations in an increasingly
 complex environment is becoming crucial for stability of any
 organization. In the emerging economic scenario, the focus is clearly
 on controlling the size of operations and implementing innovative means
 of utilizing available resources in the. most cost-effective manner.
 One of the measures being widely adopted by most organizations is
 outsourcing of their IT operations to Managed Service Providers who can
 not only execute the services, but also manage and monitor them
 Over the past few months, ITIL has geared up to deliver the full
 spectrum of managed services to meet all the application needs of our
 clients. ITIL is delivering scalable, world-class infrastructure and
 application-specific services to ensure that Quality and delivery
 expectations are met across the varied client base.
 Mobile Computing
 A joint team from world-renowned management consultants, Accenture
 (known earlier as Andersen Consulting) and ITIL has identified Mobile
 Computing as key area for growth and profitability as mobile computing
 is likely to see large-scale growth. Worldwide, currently 200 million
 Internet users and 400 million mobile users can be tapped with mobile
 computing, Mobile Computing is fast emerging as the key focus area for
 communications for companies worldwide. Your Company is one of the
 earliest players in India who started R & D in Mobile Computing and
 today the investment made is poised to pay rich returns.  
 The employees of your Company work on the latest hardware and software
 platforms, which enhance their output and productivity. The Company has
 its software development center with state-of-the-art facilities at New
 Your Company has a strong presence abroad to cater to the worldwide
 software requirements through its own offices or joint venture
 companies in Australia, Canada, Finland, UAE, UK and USA.
 As part of expansion of marketing activities, your Company has already
 placed its Business Development Managers in these countries. Your
 Company further plans to set-up new overseas offices in Singapore and
 Germany. Negotiations are already on in these countries and operations
 are going to start soon.
 During the year, your Company reviewed its manpower position and has
 also downsized its employee strength. Currently it is employing
 qualified and experienced manpower of about 250 employees including
 Software, technical, marketing and finance professionals. The company
 has got sound back-up of its training programs for upgradation of
 skills on the latest development in software technologies.
 ITIL has got consistent HR system in place so as to ensure that it
 recruits and retains the best and the brightest. This commitment
 includes training Company's professionals in the industry's best
 training programs, establishing performance-based and
 compensation-based transparent system with vibrant and open culture
 where achievers thrive, and communicating with each other and with our
 clients more candidly than ever before.
 To keep pace with the new technologies, a dedicated team for R&D has
 also been set up by the Company. This team comprises of experienced and
 qualified professionals. Currently a large investment has been made in
 the latest technologies of SMS and WAP since it has experienced
 impressive membership growth comprising the leading players in wireless
 communications technologies, mobile computing, mobile services and
 other software development and services. The mission of the platform
 and the Forum that has developed it is to provide a universal standard
 for accessing Internet content and value-added services using wireless
 devices such as mobile phones, pagers, personal digital assistants
 (PDAs) and other wireless terminals.
 Your Company achieved the highest level in quality certification on
 April 6th, 2001. ITIL was assessed at the Optimized Level of Maturity
 (Level 5) of Capability Maturity Model (CMM) developed by the Software
 Engineering Institute (SEI) of the Carnegie Mellon University, USA.
 This is a major step further in the direction of excellence. The
 foundation for a good Quality System at ITIL was laid by ISO 9001
 Certification that the company had obtained in June, 1997.  
 ITIL has its own Quality Assurance Group and has also hired KPMG as a
 third party Quality Consultant. All the software projects and product
 development work strictly adhere to the defined quality procedures
