2.1. INTRODUCTION: The fertilizer industry present one of the most energy intensive sectors within the Indian economy and is therefore of particular interest in the context of both local and global environmental discussions. Increase in productivity through the adoption of more efficient and cleaner technologies in the manufacturing sector ill is most effective in merging economic, environmental and social development objectives. A historical examination of productivity growth in India s industries embedded into a broader analysis of structural composition and policy changes will help, identify potential future development strategies that lead towards a more sustainable development path. Issues of productivity growth and patterns of substitution in the fertilizer sector as well as in other energy intensive industries in India have been discussed in various perspectives. However, analyzing the use and substitution possibilities of these factors as well as identifying the main drivers of productivity growth among these and other factors is of special importance for understanding technological and overall development of an industry. With liberalization of the fertilizer sector and reduction of subsidies productivity declined substantially since the early 1990s, despite an increase in capacity utilization. In comparing current energy consumption to best achievable energy consumption, energy savings of up to 17%

could be achieved. However, the implementation of initiatives towards energy efficiency is being hampered by barriers both of general and process specific nature occurring at the macro and micro level of the economy. Energy policies in general and price based policies in particular can help overcome these barriers in giving proper incentives and correcting distorted prices. Appropriate provisions should be made in the retention pricing scheme to further encourage investment in energy conservation projects. Originally, normative consumption of various inputs was taken into account under the retention price system which encouraged the implementation of energy efficiency measures. These and other fiscal incentives need to be reinstated under the current scheme. Future energy use depends on the level of production and the technologies employed. Furthermore, different economic and policy settings affect structures and efficiencies within the sector. The final section therefore examines the ongoing changes in the fertilizer industry structure. It compares best practice technologies to Indian technologies and identifies potentials and barriers to the adoption of such efficiency improvements. Agriculture continues to contribute about 25% of national income and remains a major sector that employs 60% of the labor force in rural India Although economic reforms initiated in the early 1990s had an indirect effect on the agricultural sector and its performance. It is important to examine various policy measures that have been implemented in the 1980s and 1990s that have had implications for the growth of the agricultural sector. The economic reforms initiated in 1991 provided a major jump start for liberalization of the agriculture sector as well. Prior to the initiation of economic reforms in 1991, the Indian agriculture sector was plagued with high levels of regulations in the context of

both domestic and external markets. Such regulations have had their origin, which goes back in the 1960s when the country was faced with acute food shortage and famine like conditions. Several controls and regulations were placed in order to achieve self sufficiency in food production and to provide an adequate supply of food to the countrys burgeoning population. From 1965 to `980, the agriculture sector was characterized by high level of investment in research and development with a focus on achieving self sufficiency through increased agricultural production. The green revolution technologies along with several policy support measures adopted and implemented such as fertilizer subsidy and extension system helped to achieve self sufficiency in food grains by the early 1970s. Until the early 1980s, the emphasis continued to be self sufficiency in food grain production in staple crops such as rice and wheat. In the early 1990s, the investment in agriculture research and development has seen a decline compared to levels in the 1970s. Furthermore, the production levels of cereal crops reached a plateau. The agriculture reforms that accompanied economic reforms in the `990s have led to many policy changes in the ground. Yet, the impact of such reforms and policy measures on the performance of the agriculture sector in the 1990s compared to the 1980s is still being debated. Over the past many decades, the dissemination of agricultural technologies has not effectively percolated to the grass root level in spite of the presence of various extension agencies. An extension agency had been addressing the needs of farmers, but in an isolated manner with no coordination among themselves. Lack of sound feedback mechanism has been caused system fatigue. At present , public extension services for agriculture is centrally directed and highly target oriented. Two changes in the extension approach would benefit.

First , it would be desirable to move from fragmented message based extension process to a broad based farm management approach. Extension must be focused on conservation and better use of natural resource of basin and maximizing farm profits by assessing the market potential.


The International are immense value to man. They help to the growth of agricultural production. India is primarily an agricultural or an agro-based country. Hence it plays an immense role in providing support to millions of people of the country.

The use of International enables the plants to increase the crop production by absorbing greater amount of nutrient present in the soil. Hence, the International sector is one of a vital sector in the economy of the country. Of late , a large number of private and public sector fertilizer plant have come up in the country. These plants engage those selves in production of several sample and complex International such as urea, ammonium phosphate and other complex nitrogenous and phosphates International, which play strategic role in creating the needs of the various sectors of the society.

The advent of globalization has ushered in stronger and larger players on the Indian scenario, in the fertilizer business. A need was therefore felt to create large and focused business entities in the fertilizer business. Some of the major International making companies are Nagarjuna International and Chemicals ltd.., Coromandel International ltd.. are the major phosphoric plant in the country .In fact, all the other International plants in the country are either Nitrogenous or potash based CIL is only integrated.

2.3. HISTORY OF INDIAN INTERNATIONAL INDUSTRY: The first fertilizer factory in India was established at Ranipet, Tamilnadu by EID Parry Ltd.., in 1996 to produce super phosphate from the acidulation of crushed bones with an annual capacity of 6400. This was followed by Dharmasri Maurarji Chemical Factor at Ambernath in Maharastrain 1924 and DCM Factory at Delhi in 1964, both produced only super phosphate . The best production of nitrogenous fertilized Via , Ammonium sulfate was in 1993 as a byproduct in the Tata Iron and Steel plant company at Jamshedpur. This was followed in 1941 by production of small qualities of Ammonium sulfate at Belagula and Mysore. The acute shortage of food immediately after the second world war necessitated a fresh look at the ways of increasing production of food grains in the country. In this process, the need for International as an essential input for increased yields was realized .As a result , the government of India started fertilized plants in Sindri. India was fourth largest producer on nitrogenous International in the world. It was ranked 8th in the phosphate International.

2.4. DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH OF INTERNATIONAL INDUSTRY: At present, there are 66 large sized fertilizer plants in the country manufacturing a wide range of nitrogenous, phosphate and complex International. Of these, 29 units produce urea, 20 units are of DAP and complex International., 7 units produce low analysis straight nitrogenous International and remaining 9 manufacture ammonium sulfate as by-product. Besides, there

are about 74 small and medium scale plants in operation producing single super phosphate (SSP). The total installed capacity of fertilizer production, which was 120.58 lakh MT of nitrogen and 52.31lakh MT of phosphate as on 31.03.2003 has marginally reduced to 119.98 lakh MT of nitrogen and 53.60lakh MT has raised to 54.20.

As of 2000, installed capacity in nitrogen based nutrients was 11 million tons and in phosphate based nutrients, 3.6 million tons potassium based nutrients must all be imported. Since 1992, the government has been gradually decontrolling the price of International. The prices of urea are scheduled to be completely decontrolled by 2006/07.

2.5. ROLE OF INTERNATIONAL- AGRICULTURAL SECTOR IN INDIA: Agriculture is very vital sector of Indian economy. It accounts for 32% of the countrys GDP, provides employment to 65% of the workforce and earns 27% of the Indias foreign exchange. Growth of agricultures and indicator of health of the overall economy. The most important factor that contributes to the growth of agriculture is the use of International. The development of fertilizer industry in India has been synonym agriculture and with rapidly growing agricultural. About 50% of the increasing crop productivity in recent times can be credited to the use of International. India has different kinds of soils and climatic regions. Centers of cropping and inadequate manure have left the Indian soil largely depleted of plant nutrients. T o advice and educate the farmers about the use of International and ensure the supply at qualitative products, a member of soil testing laboratories have been set up. These helped the farmer in judicious use of International. The consumption International is directly related to the availability of subsoil and surface water for irrigation and on the vagaries of the weather. The Indian economic growth is largely depends on agriculture. health of fertilizer

industry indicates the trends of economic recession

In 1997, the government introduced

retention price scheme for nitrogenous

International, which was later extended to other International. To make adequate quality of International to farmers in time, government also gave a freight subsidy , which covered the movement of fertilizer to the block head quarters. Due to ample mishandling , political interference of government gave up all those plants and gave permissions for decontrol of phosphate and potassium International from august 25, 1992 and gave adore subsidies on indigenous phosphate International.

PRESENT TRENDS: During the 8th plan in 1992-98, the production came to very close to 100 degrees 10 capacity utilization in spite of the problems of sickness and raw material constraints. There would have been a short fall in production during 8th plan but for the failure of planned capacity addition of 7lakhs tons for nitrogen and 2lakhs tons for phosphate due to feed stock supply constraints(natural gas). Incase of fertilizer which depends wholly on imported raw material ,only a small capacity addition was included in the 8th plan with the adoption of pipe reactor technology in the existing plans to enable and to achieve a production increase of 25%-30%. This did not help the units because of the policy changes in 1992 resulting in decontrol of phosphate International. The major of 9th plan (1999-2002) strategy, is to frame long term feed stock and price

policies for International and the steady tapering of subsidies. It also aims to encourage inflow of fresh investments and bring about an increase in fertilizer consumption. To realize optimum application, the large price disparity between the different nutrients to realize optimum

application will also have to be corrected. Infrastructure will have to be strengthened to ensure smooth rail movement of International and post handling of imported nutrients. The lack of fertilizer policy made difficult by the political uncertainties created by coalition compulsions at the center. In the health of this vital industry through production wise , it has had a better year in 1997-1998 than in the previous year. This underlined the need for a comprehensive fertilizer policy. As a response to this, a high power committee an fertilizer pricing was submitted. As per the report , the committee recommended scraping of unit wise retention price cut subsidies scheme for both urea and complex International to facilitate balanced application by farmers. The pricing methodology was based on long range marginal cost principle to enhance production efficiency. This pricing formula urea also proposed to increase new investments and efficient use of feedstock. Indias current International production is 32.7 million metric tons, nitrogen, phosphate and potash combined , while the demand is about 37.4 million metric tons during 2007-08, the country imported 6.92 million metric tons of urea , 2.9 million metric tons of DAP&MAP and 2.8million metric tons of MOP. With a number of units in the country not producing phosphatic International to their full capacity for various reasons including non-availability of raw materials , the volume of DAP imports is expected to go up further in the year 2008-09.During the year , the International consumption showed a growth of 4.1% compared to the previous year. While the phosphatic International (DAP&MAP) usage recorded a growth of 5.9% ,the complex International usage recorded a drop of 3.36% during the year 2007-08. There is obviously a strong case for higher usage of chemical International for improving farm productivity.

After achieving three years of GDP growth of nearly 9%,GDP growth for the fiscal year 2008-09 is 6.7% as per the estimates released by CSO. India. The growth rate in agriculture sector is estimated to be much lower at 1.65 for 2008-09 compared to 4.9% achieved in 2007-08. Food production in the country during 2008-09 is estimated in excess of 230 million tones with record procurement of rice and wheat . Prices of a number of agricultural commodities were below MSP adversely affecting the farming community. That despite record production of food grains, the consumer prices of a number of commodities like rice, wheat, sugar , oil etc.. have steeply risen, has been a cause for serious concern. The year 2008-09 was marked by considerable volatility in the prices of imported International and fertilizer raw materials and intermediates. The international prices of DAP ,Urea and various raw materials like phosphoric acid, sulfur , ammonia rock phosphate and potash touched unprecedented levels by September, 2008 and then fell sharply over the next 6months.This volatility caused lot of uncertainty to the fertilizer manufactures including your company. It is expected that the prices will remain reasonably stable during the year 2009-10.

2.6.2.INDUSTRY SCENARIO: The Indian economy has registered a growth rate of 9.2% during 2006-07, although the agriculture sector with which company is associated is expected to achieve a growth rate of only 2.7%. The average growth of the agriculture sector during the tenth plan period is estimated at only 2.3% and is below the desired level of 4% per year , which is necessary for achieving the target growth of 8% CAGR in total GDP on a sustained basis. In the recent Economic Survey released by government of India, it has been acknowledged that the low yield per unit area across almost all the crops has become a regular

feature of Indian agriculture. It is also admitted that imbalanced fertilizer use is one of the major factors resulting in the lackluster performance of the agriculture sector. The survey emphasizes on the urgent need for taking agriculture to a 4% annual growth through various reforms aimed at efficient use of resources and conservation of soil , water and ecology on a sustainable basis and in a holistic framework. The recent moves to focus on large investment in major and medium irrigation projects as well as for renovation and restoration of water bodies directly linked to agriculture is expected to provide a strong base for more consistent and broad based growth. The use of chemical International plays an important role in increasing agricultural production, productivity and farm income. Equally important is the fact that higher doses of International are required to replenish the nutrients that are removed by the crops to prevent soil degradation. There is considerable scope for further increasing fertilizer consumption especially phosphatic International, though there has been reasonably good increase in the consumption of phosphatic International during the last 3 years . In this context, CIL has been working on a project covering more than 1200 low International consuming villages spread over several districts of Andhra Pradesh and Orissa for educating the farmers on the need for increasing fertilizer consumption and provide balanced nutrition to the crops in order to improve the farm yields and maintain soil health. While there has been an increase in the overall consumption of chemical International from a mere 89.63kg per hectare in 2000-01 to 113.26kg per hectare in 2006-07, there is a still considerable scope for increasing fertilizer consumption. Government has emphasized that acceleration of growth in agriculture sector will not only push the overall GDP growth upward, it would also make the growth more inclusive. Increasing farm incomes is necessary for an

equitable growth. Further, with uncertainties in global market and hardening of the international prices of food, fuel and edible oils, domestic prices stability and food security critically depend in the growth in agricultural sector.

2.7. FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OF THE FERTILIZER SECTOR: Ongoing changes in the fertilizer industry: The fertilizer industry today as in the past faces major challenges. Continued supply and use of fertilizer is important to ensure the countrys food security goal . Food grain production was declining in the most recent past (between 199496) potentially jeopardizing this goal (Government of India, Department of Agriculture and cooperation ,1999;Trivedi, 1998) .The industrys challenges relate to the uncertainty in the supply and pricing of feedstock, especially of natural gas and naphtha , low efficiency and small size of older plants, high investment costs, infrastructural bottlenecks and an uncertain policy environment .

2.8. RISK MANAGEMENT: The company recognizes that there are several risks that impact the business. The company has constituted a risk management committee headed by the CEO and comprising of the senior management personnel. The committee meets periodically and reviews the various risks associated with the business and the effectiveness of the mitigation measures.

HISTORICAL GROWTH: Independent India realized that its largely agrarian economy needed at thrust in the


right direction for its people to benefit and prosper. The Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru invited the Ford Foundation to carry out a comprehensive study of Indian agriculture and give its recommendations. The study revealed a crucial need to produce indigenous chemical International to increase agricultural output to meet the countrys ever increasing food demand. 1961: An industrial license was granted to three companies IMC(the worlds Largest

producer of International then), Chevron chemical company (A Major American player in International/industrial chemicals)and EID Parry (India)Ltd(Indias largest private fertilizer producer with 60yrs standing)-to set up a giant chemical fertilizer complex. The first Board of Directors was constituted on oct16, with HVR Iyengar as its Chairman. others on the board included JQ Cope ,Charles Dennison, J.K. John, DR. L. Bharat ram ,A.W. Horton, J. T. Gibson, S.C. Dholakia, V.K. Rao and Raja Rameshwara Rao, L.L. Powell and P.J. Davis were the first managing director and Dy. managing director respectively. Donald I Michael was the first company secretary. 1962: Market development commence in the form of a seeding- Programme. EID Parry was appointed CILS Principal sales agent in India for our product aptly name GROMOR epitomizing the idea of growing more food for the nation. A 483.5 acres site was identified at VSP along the Coromandel coast (Indias east coast),from where the company derived its name. The land, taken under a 50-yr lease from Vsp port trust , has a private jetty just 5km from the plant site . With a capital investment of Rs.50crores,Lumus company undertook construction of the plant.


On December 10,Mr.Morarji Desai ,The Deputy Prime minister of India ,dedicated the

fertilizer plant to the nation, in the presence of Mr. Kasu Brahmananda Reddy,the Chief Minister of A.P . Grandhi Ramamurthy, a local Farmer ,was given the honour of cutting the ribbon. The 245feet high urea prill tower was one of the tallest industrial structures in India

then. Though not operational today, it still presents a formidable sight , towering against the skyline ,recalling old memories for those who were associated with its operation. 1970: The GROMOR farmer was developed as a marketing symbol and introduced on our bags

to spread the message of higher yields, bigger profits. Today ,farmer households across our addressable markets identify CILs brand by this symbol. 1971: The Coromandel Lecture was instituted to provide a forum for thinkers, economists, social and agricultural research scientists around the world to share their thoughts on issues of global concern such as food security, environment and extension activity. The Borlaug Award instituted in honour of noble laureate Dr. Norman Borlaug (father of the wheat revolution), honors eminent men of science and industry for their distinctive contribution to the cause of agriculture . This reflects CILS concern to develop a symbiotic interaction between agriculture, industry and academia. 1976: Our fertilizer retail outlet at Secunderabad got a boost with garden lovers fervently seeking small quantities of International for bigger and richer blooms and fruit. 1977: CIL completed a decade of participation in augmenting agricultural production for the nation .Its vital role covered soil nourishment, sharing agronomic expertise ,supporting agricultural education and rewarding research- all of which had progressively grown in width and depth during the decade.

1980-1990: Plans to diversify were a foot. A ground breaking ceremony was performed in November 1980 at Chilamkur (A.P), which is rich in limestone deposits, to set up a one million tone cement plant. The fully computerized plant (designed by world renowned cement manufacturer Krupp Polysius of West Germany) was commissioned in 1984. It was later sold to India cements in 1990. 1995-99: Chevron Chemical company divested its stake in favor of EIDParry(1)Limited acquired majority shareholding in CIL.., Making it a part of the Murugappa Group ,a highly reputed industrial conglomerate. 2000: CIL s growth over the years has been punctuated with several path breaking modernizations / up gradation programmes .Begun in 1975,the programme gathered momentum in 1992-95,when the sulfuric acid ,phosphoric acid and complex granulation plants were debottlenecked. Production capacity wends up from the original 247,000MT to 400,000MT.On September 29, Mr. .N. ChandraBabunaidu, the chief minister of A.P, inaugurated a new complex granulation train. This further augmented capacity to 600,000Mt, a boon to the entire farming community. 2003: On july12, CIL consolidated its business by acquiring, controlling stake in Godavari

Parry Gold: Ammonium phosphate sulfate containing Nitrogen and Phosphate in 1:1 ratio . It is an ideal fertilizer for all crops grown in sulfur deficient soils.

PRODUCTION PROCESS: Sulfuric acid plant: We are operating 1700tons per day capacity sulfuric acid plant designed

and constructed by Miss. Simon Carves(India). Sulfuric acid is used as in acidulated in the phosphoric acid plant and is therefore only an intermediate production. Solid Sulfur is melted and filtered then sent to the combustion chamber where it reacts with oxygen in the air. Dioxide is formed from where hot gases converter containing four beds of vanadium pent oxide catalyst. The Euphoric dioxide is observed, converted to sulfuric trioxide in the water in the final absorption tower to give sulfuric acid at a concentration of 93%. The sulfuric acid generated in the inter absorption tower and final absorption tower is routed to the sulfuric acid storage tanks from where it is frawn for the use in the manufacture of phosphoric acid.

Phosphoric acid plant: The phosphoric acid plant was designed and constructed by M/S. Dorr Oliver USA. The original capacity of the plant was 255tons per day whish was increased to 325perday during years, the plant now produced on an average above 500tons of phosphoric acid per day. Rock phosphate containing calcium phosphate is ground a fine powder and reacted with sulfuric acid in reactor slurry of phosphoric acid gypsum. The reactor slurry is filtered on a rotary tilting pan type filter to separate the acid from gypsum. The gypsum from the filter is washed down to gypsum pond. The phosphoric acid is recovered at 28%p205 acid is

concentrated in a two stage evaporation process to give 485 p205 acids drawn from use in the complex plant. The off gases from evaporation section are subscribed in fluorine recovery plant to produce 13 tons per day of hydrofluoric acid. The effluents from the reactor and evaporation stages are treated in an effluent treatment plant. Reduce the fluorine , phosphorus levels to appropriate low values as fixed by the central pollution control board. Complex plant: The plant was designed and constructed by M/S. Wellman lord company

USA. The complex plant utilizes ammonia ,phosphoric acid and urea to make urea ammonium phosphate 28-28-0 where as for manufacturing complex N,P,K 14-35-14,ammonia and phosphoric acid are used along with potash, which is an ought out raw material, mixed with other feed stocks in the complex plant in case of manufacturer of 16-20,20-20-0. Ammonia phosphoric acid and sulfuric acid are used as feeds. These two are first reacted in a reactor .The wet granules from granulator are then grid in a rotary drier using hot air derived from a furnace. The drier output is screened and the proper size of granules is recovered as product. The product granules are cooled in a cooling drum and sent to the product storage area

or to the bagging plant. The product material is a bagged in 50kg bags and are dispatched by rail/road to various parts in India.

INTRODUCTION: We have already studied that there are various methods or techniques used in analyzing financial statements, such as comparative and common size statements, trend analysis etc. The ratio analysis is one of the most powerful tools of financial analysis. It is the process of establishing and interpreting various ratios. MEANING OF RATIO: The term Ratio means Reason in Latin word. A ratio is a simple arithmetic expression of the relationship of one number to another. It may be defined as the indicated quotient of two mathematical expressions. This means the arithmetical relationship between two variables is treated as Ratio. Ratios provide clues to the financial position of a concern. NATURE OF RATIO ANALYSIS: Ratio Analysis is a technique of analysis and interpretation of financial accounting data. Calculation of mere ratios does not serve any purpose, unless several appropriate ratios are analyzed and interpreted. The following are the three important steps involved in the ratio analysis. Selection of relevant data from the financial statements depends upon the objective of analysis. Calculation of appropriate ratios from the data. Comparison of the calculated ratio with the ratio of the same firm in the past, or the ratios developed from projected financial statements or the ratios analysis

facilitates easy understanding of financial statements. With the use of ratio analysis one can measure the financial conditions of the firm and can point out whether the condition is strong, good, questionable or poor. The importance of Ratio analysis is summarized as under. 1. Ratio analysis helps in making decisions from the information provided in financial statements. 2. It helps in forecasting and planning. 3. Ratio analysis helps in simplifying the financial statements. 4. It helps management to take better decisions by comparing actual with the standard so as to take corrective action at the right time. 5. It helps in investigating the financial soundness. 6. It helps to know the relationship between the related items of financial statements.


RATIO ANALYSIS is a widely used tool of financial analysis. Though the ratios offer various advantages they also suffer from the following limitations-


A Single Ratio, usually, does not convey much of a sense. To make a better interpretation a number of ratios has to b calculated which is likely to confuse the analyst than help him make any meaningful conclusion.


There are no well accepted standards or rules for calculation of ratios. Hence it is very difficult to ascertain the standard ratio in order to make a proper comparison.

The accuracy & correctness of ratios is totally dependent upon reliability of data given in financial statements. If there are any mistakes or omissions in financial statements, ratio analysis presents a wrong picture about a concern.


Change in accounting procedure by a firm makes a ratio analysis misleading e.g. a change in the valuation of method of inventories, from FIFO to LIFO increases/decreases the cost of sales and the value of closing stock thereby vitiating turnover ratio, gross profit ratio etc.

It means manipulation of accounts in a way so as to conceal vital tax and present a better picture of its financial and profitability position to its outsiders.

Ratios are most powerful tools of financial analysis. Hence they have to be interpreted very carefully. if any personal bias takes place in any analysis and interpretation, the firm suffers a lot.

In view of various users of ratios, there are many types of ratios which can be calculated from the information given in the financial statements. Accounting ratios are classified in various ways. Ratios are broadly classified intoLiquidity Ratios

Leverage Ratios Activity Ratio and Profitability Ratios. 1. LIQUIDITY RATIOS: Liquidity ratio measures the short-term solvency of a firm the following are some of the important liquidity ratios. A) CURRENT RATIO: Current ratio is the ratio of current assets to current liabilities. A current ratio of 2:1 is considered as ideal. A ratio less than 2 indicates that business does not enjoy adequate liquidity. However a high ratio indicates that firm has ideal funds.


Quick Ratio is also known as Acid Test Ratio or Liquid Ratio. It shows the relationship between liquid assets to liquid/quick liabilities. A quick ratio of 1 is usually considered as ideal. A quick ratio of less than 1 is indicative as inadequate liquidity of business. A very high quick ratio is also not advisable as funds cannot be properly employed.


This ratio enables us to known the immediately liquidity position of the firm. It is the relationship between absolute liquid assets to current liabilities. Absolute liquid assets which can be converted into cash within a very short period.

2. LEVERAGE RATIOS: Leverage ratios indicate the relative interests of owners and creditors of business. The long term creditors would judge the soundness of the firm which can be known by leverage ratios. Some of the leverage ratios are: A) DEBT-EQUITY RATIO: This ratio explains the relationship between the owners funds and burrowed funds. The ratio indicates the relationship between the external equities or the outsiders funds and the internal equities or the shareholders funds this is why this ratio is also known as External-Internal Equity Ratio or Debt to Net worth Ratio. A high ratio shows that the claims of the creditors are greater than that of owners and is unfavorable from the firms point of view. Sometimes sufficient profit cannot be earned to pay even the interest changes of the creditors. Thus a low ratio shows a favorable position.


This ratio establishes the relationship between the equity share holders funds to total assets of the firm. The ratio of proprietors funds to total funds (Total assets) is an important ratio for determining long term solvency of a firm. This ratio is also known as share holders to Net Worth Ratio.

C) SOLVENCY RATIO: This ratio establishes the relationship between the total liabilities to outsiders and total assets. Solvency generally refers to the capacity or ability of the business to meet its short term and long term obligations. If a company is in a position to pay its long term liabilities easily, it is said to poses long term solvency. If a companys financial position is strong to pay current liabilities it is regarded as short term solvency.

D) INTEREST COVERAGE RATIO: This ratio shows the relationship between the profit (before interest and Tax) to interest. It is expressed the number of times. This ratio is useful to debenture holders and other creditors who have lent their money.

Where PBIT = Profit Before Interest and Tax

E) FIXED ASSETS TO NET WORTH RATIO: This ratio establishes the relationship between the fixed assets and share holders funds of a firm

A ratio of 0.6 to 0.65 is considered favorable.

F) FIXED ASSETS RATIO: This ratio establishes the relationship between the fixed assets of a firm and its long term funds.

A ratio of 1:1 is considered satisfactory.

3. PROFITABILITY RATIOS The primary objective of a business undertaking is to earn profits. Profit earning is considered essential for the survival of the business. Profitability ratios are calculated to measure the overall efficiencies of the business. Various Profitability ratios are discussed below.

A) GROSSPROFIT RATIO: Gross profit ratio measures the relationship of gross profit to net sales and is usually represented as a percentage. It indicates the extent to which selling prices of goods per unit may decline without resulting in losses on operation of a firm. A comparison of gross profit ratio over time for different firms in the same industry is a good measure of profitability.

A higher ratio is considered favorable.

B) NET PROFIT RATIO: Net profit ratio establishes a relationship between net profit (after taxes) and sales. It indicates the efficiency of the management in manufacturing, selling, administrative and other activities of the firm.

A higher ratio is considered favorable.

C) OPERATING PROFIT RATIO: This ratio establishes the relationship between operating profit to net sales of a firm.

D) EXPENSES RATIO: It indicates the relationship of various expenses to net sales. The operating ratio reveals the average total variation in expenses. Expenses ratios are calculated by dividing each item of expenses or groups of expenses by net sales. These ratios can be for each individual item of expenses.

OVERALL OTHER PROFITABILITY RATIOS: This ratio indicates the overall profitability of the business. Profits are the measures of the overall efficiency of the business. The higher the profits, the more efficient are the business considered. Various types of overall profitability ratios are

A) RETURN OF ASSETS RATIO: This ratio is useful to measure the profitability of all the financial resources invested in the firms assets. It indicates how effectively the pool of funds is utilized to generate favorable earnings.

B) RETURN ON NET WORTH RATIO (RNW): It indicates the post tax return on the share holders funds i.e., equity and reserves. BHPV being a public limited company the question of dividend does not arise. This ratio is one of the most important ratios used for measuring the overall efficiency of a firm. This ratio is of great importance to the present and prospective as well as the management of the firm.

C) RETURN ON EQUITY CAPITAL: This ratio establishes the relationship between the net profit after tax and dividend and preference dividend and paid up equity share capital.

D) EARNING PER SHARE (EPS) This ratio enables us to know the profit earnings by the company for every equity share.

E) EARNING POWER RATIO (EPR) It establishes a relationship between profit after tax and profit employed. It is of great significance to the shareholders as it measures how much of return on cash on each rupee of capital employed is gained.

4. ACTIVITY RATIOS: Activity Ratio measures the efficiency or effectiveness with which a firm manages its resources or assets. The ratios are also called turn over ratios

because they indicate the speed with which assets are converted or turned over into sales.

A) INVENTORY TURN OVER RATIO: Inventory Turnover Ratio (I.T.R) indicates the number of times the stock has been turned over during the period and evaluates the efficiency with which a firm is able to manage its inventory. If the turnover is higher, then it means lesser amount of capital is blocked up in the form of working capital. A very low ratio indicators excessive inventory.

B) DEBTORS TURN OVER RATIO: A concern may sell goods on cash as well as on credit. Credit is one of the important elements of sales promotion. Debtors velocity indicates the number of times the debtors are turned over during a year. Generally, the higher the value of debtors turn over, the more efficient is the management. Similarly, low debtors turnover implies inefficient management of debtors.

AVERAGE COLLECTION PERIOD: Average collection period represents the average number of days for which a firm has to wait before its receivables are converted into cash.

C) CREDITORS TURNOVER RATIO (CTR) This ratio enables us to understand the efficiency of the payables management of the firm.

A lower CTR than DTR is considered favorable.

AVERAGE PAYMENT PERIOD: This ratio represents the average no. of days taken by the firm to pay its creditors.

D) WORKING CAPITAL TURNOVER RATIO (WCTR): This ratio indicates the velocity of the utilization of net working capital. It indicates the number of time the working capital is turned over in a year.

E) FIXED ASSETS TURNOVER RATIO (F.A.T.R) This ratio indicates the efficiency of the utilization of fixed assets of a firm.

F) CAPITAL TURNOVER RATIO : Capital turnover ratio is the relationship between cost of goods sold and the capital employed. This ratio is calculated to measure the efficiency or effectiveness with which a firm utilizes its resources or the capital employed.


CURRENT RATIO: Current ratio has been calculated by considering current assets and current liabilities for the past five years.

Current Ratio =

Current Assets --------------------------Current Liabilities


Current assets

Current liabilities


2008 2009 2010 2011 2012

1,17,366.73 1,94,310.61 3,72,638.62 3,36,223.88 4,17,026.03

59,749.60 83,552.45 1,75,502.51 95,235.04 1,77,904.85

1.96 2.32 2.12 3.53 2.34

4 3.5 3 2.5 2 1.5 1 0.5 0 3.53 2.32 1.96 2.12 2.34






Interpretation: The current assets must be twice of its current liabilities. In CIL the ratio is always in the range of 1.90 to 3.50, which is accepted level. From 2008 to 2010, the ratios are between 1.90 and 2.30 which is reasonable to meet its current obligations and in 2011 this ratio shown an increase but in 2012 there is a slight decrease.

QUICK RATIO: Quick ratio has been calculated by considering quick assets and current liabilities for the past five years. Quick assets = Current assets Inventory

Quick ratio =

Quick assets ---------------------Current Liabilities Current liabilities 59,749.60 83,552.45 1,75,502.51 95,235.04 1,77,904.85 Ratio 1.28 1.29 1.35 2.55 1.49

Year 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012

3 2.5 2 1.5 1 0.5 0 2008 1.28

Quick assets 76,894.08 1,07,823.78 2,37,887.57 2,43,581.61 2,65,713.91









Interpretation: From the above table it is clear that the ratio is stable from 2008 to 2010 by containing ratio in between 1.28 to 1.35. In 2011, the ratio has been increased to 2.55 but in 2012 this ratio has decreased.

CASH RATIO: Cash ratio is calculated by considering cash and marketable securities and current liabilities for the past five years.

Cash Ratio =

Cash ---------------Current liabilities

Years 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012

Cash and Bank balances 16,949.16 10,271.45 34,149.28 80,985.86 90,205.59

Current liabilities 59,749.60 83,552.45 1,75,502.51 95,235.04 1,77,904.85

Ratio 0.28 0.12 0.19 0.85 0.51

0.9 0.8 0.7 0.6 0.5 0.4 0.3 0.2 0.1 0 0.85


0.28 0.12 2008 2009 0.19 2010 2011 2012

Interpretation: The cash ratio of CIL was found fluctuating during the past five years. As this is a ratio between liquidity of cash and liabilities any figure above 0.10 is reasonable. In 2011 it was at a high of 0.85 and the lowest was at 0.12 in 2009.

(2) LEVERAGE RATIOS: DEBT RATIO: Total debt ratio has been calculated by using total debts and total assets for the past five years.

Total debt ratio =

Total debt ---------------------Total capital employed

Years 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012

Total debts 54896.04 100197.52 171989.99 191779.39 147116.13

Total capital employed 113273.79 191977.54 292650.75 343824.91 345673.19

Ratio 0.48 0.52 0.58 0.55 0.42

1 0.9 0.8 0.7 0.6 0.5 0.4 0.3 0.2 0.1 0

0.58 0.48 0.52 0.55 0.43






Interpretation: The total debt ratio depicts the proportion of total assets financed by the total liabilities. The higher the total debt the more risky is the situation. Besides 2008, Total debt ratio was above 0.50 until 2011. In 2012, the values came down below 0.45 which shows a satisfactory decrease in total debt.

DEBT EQUITY RATIO: Debt equity ratio has been calculated by using total debt and net worth for the past five years. Debt equity ratio = Total debt ---------------------Equity share capital

Years 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012

Total debts 54896.04 100197.52 171989.99 191779.39 147116.13

Equity share capital 51243.41 79443.5 112714.05 143499.81 190411.57

Ratio 1.07 1.26 1.52 1.34 1.77


2.5 2 1.5 1 0.5 0 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012

Interpretation: This ratio is computed to know the changes in debt and equity from the last five years debt proportion. Every manufacturing concern is better to maintain 1:2 is adequate debt-equity ratio. But the above figures show an unsatisfactory debt situation which lowered largely in 2012.


INVENTORY TURNOVER RATIO: The ratio is caluculated by dividing the cost of goods sold by the average inventory for past four years.

Inventory turn over ratio =

Cost of Goods Sold --------------------------------Average Inventory

Years 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012

Cost of Goods Sold 114922.68 171307.35 120625.78 198748.60 213064.27

Interpretation: The NP ratio establishes the relation between the earnings after tax and the net sales. This ratio shows the net contribution funds. The NP ratio of CIL reveals the net contribution made by every one rupee of sales to the owner funds. It shows an exponential growth from past five years. It is high-quality indication to the firm, but in the year 2011 it has slightly decreased by 6.49%& in 2012it has increased to 21.27. So the company has to take little care regarding this change.
