Chairman Speech

Dear Shareholders,


It gives me a great pleasure to present the 21st Annual Report of Hasti Finance Limited.


Hasti have come a long way since it commenced its journey decades ago, when the industry structure, customer requirements and regulatory frameworks were different. Today is the time where India is well poised to become an economic super power. It is a Country where innovation has become the buzz world.


Hasti Finance was founded in 1994 with an mission to participate in the growth of the nation through financial assistance to its core participants, empowering the nation''s true wealth, its people through personalized and business finance to growing enterprises and individuals by becoming a leading finance company providing services to middle class & poor sectors of urban, semi urban and rural India.


During the Course of this journey believe, we have brought professionalism in terms of setting standards and ethics and organizational qualities to an industry largely dominated by unorganized players.


During the year company has tried its level best to sustain its growth however due to increase in number of competitors to our organization it becomes difficult to enhance our growth. Due to lower rate of interest and increase in value added services offered to customers the turnover of the company is lowered down during the year and which resulted decrease in profit before tax and earnings per share of the company.


Your management is committed to growth and assured you improved performance ahead and we look forward to your continuous support on this journey.


Regards, Nitin P. Somani Chairman
