ACL GROUP: Creditors Opt to Wind Up Firm
----------------------------------------
ABC News reports that ACL Group has gone into liquidation
following a creditors' meeting in Launceston on Wednesday,
September 30.

The report relates that since the company went into administration
in August, 105 workers have been made redundant, 70 staff
volunteered and the rest were forced out.

ABC News notes the company's administrator said liquidation was
the only viable option since there is no money in the company's
finances for workers to get redundancy entitlements and .

According to the report, the administrator and now Liquidator,
Craig Shepard of KordaMentha, said with ACL in liquidation those
workers will now get 16 weeks severance pay.

Automotive Components Limited (ACL) supplies critical components
including engine bearings and gaskets to the automotive industry.
The Company employs more than 300 people across its two sites in
Tasmania and Queensland, Australia.

Craig Shepard and Leanne Chesser of KordaMentha were appointed
voluntary administrators of ACL Group and three of its non-trading
subsidiaries on August 26, 2009.  Greg Keith and Matthew Byrnes of
Grant Thornton were subsequently appointed receivers and managers
of the ACL Group on August 26, 2009 by a secured creditor.


BABCOCK & BROWN INFRA: Rejects RBS Refinancing Proposal
-------------------------------------------------------
Babcock & Brown Infrastructure has rejected a refinancing proposal
from The Royal Bank of Scotland, which represents a group of
international hedge funds.

"Following careful assessment and having sought the advice of
Gresham Advisory Partners, the Board of BBI has formed the view
that the RBS Proposal is not superior to the transaction
contemplated with the cornerstone investor," BBI said in a
statement.

BBI said the primary reasons for this decision are:

   -- The RBS Proposal does not fundamentally address the debt
      position of BBI.  Of the total new funding proposed of
      AU$1.5 billion, only AU$500 million is equity.  The net
      new equity raised after transaction costs and other
      payments will not materially change the current gearing
      levels of BBI or address near term debt maturities at
      the operating businesses.

   -- There are considerable execution risks associated with a
      proposal relying on an equity raising in circumstances
      where BBI's debt position is not fundamentally addressed.
      BBI would not be in a position to make distributions to
      ordinary equity and three levels of convertible debt would
      have the capacity to dilute equity holders' interests.
      In addition, a transaction relying on a large number of
      counterparties to complete due diligence and agree to
      transaction terms and documentation in a timely manner
      also carries considerable execution risk.

BBI said it continues to progress an equity recapitalization
involving a potential cornerstone investor.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific reported on Sept. 4,
2009, that Babcock & Brown Infrastructure said it is talks with a
potential cornerstone investor.  The board believed that the
participation of a well-capitalized investor would significantly
increase the likelihood of a transaction being successfully
completed prior to the group's debt facilities maturing.

"The terms of a transaction with the potential cornerstone
investor have been discussed (although the structure and details
of any such transaction are not yet finalized)," BBI said in a
statement September 4.

"A comprehensive recapitalization on the terms discussed requires
the consent of existing lenders and BBI has approached the lenders
to obtain their consent to the recapitalization.  To assist its
recapitalization objectives, BBI has appointed financial advisors
to the proposed recapitalization, and Gresham Advisory Partners
have been appointed as financial advisors to the BBI Boards."

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on

secured rating.  The outlook on the ratings is stable.


CMC CAIRNS: Liquidators Begin Probe on Firm's Collapse
------------------------------------------------------
CMC Cairns Pty Ltd's liquidators have begun investigations into
the company's collapse, ABC News reports.

The report relates a spokesman for liquidators SV Partners said
investigations into whether the company traded while insolvent and
whether the directors made preferential payments or un-commercial
transactions are ongoing.

CMC Cairns Pty Ltd is a Queensland-based construction company.
The company went into voluntary administration in May, owing
between AU$17 million and AU$18 million to 400 creditors.  It also
owed nearly AU$98 million to its financiers.

The company was placed in liquidation two weeks ago after the
directors failed to sign a deed of company arrangement, according
to ABC News.


MOBIUS NCM-04: S&P Puts Ratings on Notes on CreditWatch Positive
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it has placed the
ratings on Class C, D, M, E, and F notes issued by Mobius NCM-04
Trust on CreditWatch with positive implications.  The CreditWatch
placements follow a review of the restructure proposal put forward
to noteholders of Mobius NCM-04 relating to the lenders' mortgage
insurance deposit account and reserve account.  At the same time,
the ratings on the Class A1, A2, and B notes were affirmed.  The
notes are backed by a portfolio of subprime and nonconforming
residential mortgage loans.

Standard & Poor's has reviewed the restructure proposal submitted
to the trust manager of Mobius NCM-04 by Mobius Financial Services
Pty Ltd., which is in liquidation with receivers and managers
appointed.  Under this proposal, the AU$35 million currently held
in the LMI deposit account would be released to Permanent
Custodians Ltd. in its capacity as trustee of the Mobius NCM-04
Support Trust.  In return, Permanent would make a one-off deposit
of AU$6 million into the existing reserve account.  These funds
would form additional credit enhancement to cover losses on loans
in Mobius NCM-04.

If the restructure is executed as proposed, S&P believes it will
enhance the current credit support available to rated notes and
provide an additional buffer to help withstand losses.

S&P understands that the restructure proposal has a number of
stages to progress through, including an initial noteholders'
meeting to discuss the proposal and obtain noteholders' feedback.
Should the restructure be adopted and executed as proposed, S&P
expects these outcomes: the rating on the Class C notes could be
raised to the 'A' category, the ratings on the Class D and M notes
could be raised to the 'BB' category, the rating on the Class E
notes could be raised to the 'B' category, and the rating on the
Class F notes could be raised to the 'CCC' category.

S&P expects to resolve the CreditWatch after execution of the
restructure or if the proposal were to be rejected by noteholders.

NEQTAR WINES: Sells Winery Business to Redlands Wine
----------------------------------------------------
Sunraysia winery business Neqtar Wines has been sold to a new
consortium of seven investors called Redlands Wine Company, ABC
News reports.

The report says the group includes at least one of Neqtar's major
grower creditors, Mildura businessman Greg Hutchison.

According to the report, Ms. Hutchison is hoping the purchase is
seen as a vote of confidence in the future of the region's wine
industry but said rebuilding the business will be a major task.

Neqtar Wines and its partner company SDS Beverages went into
receivership in June owing about AU$65 million.

Neqtar Wines produces and supplies wine and beverages.  The
company operates 40,000 tonne winery in Mildura, SE Australia.


TIMBERCORP LTD: Forestry Assets Sold to US Fund for AU$345 Million
------------------------------------------------------------------
Sara Rich at The Australian reports that the forestry assets of
Timbercorp Ltd have been sold for about AU$345 million to
Australian Bluegum Plantations, a wholly owned subsidiary of US
timber investment fund Global Forest Partners.

The report says the Australian Bluegum intends to set up its
headquarters in the Green Triangle region of Victoria and South
Australia, and in southwest Western Australia and retain the
employees currently working for Timbercorp's forestry business.

According to the report, Timbercorp liquidator KordaMentha said it
received seven bids for the forestry assets and Australian Bluegum
Plantations' bid was the highest and best bid by far.

Meanwhile, The Australian reports that a federal court judge
extended Wednesday the default deadline on the grower's leases
until November 3, one day after the proposed settlement date for
the sale.

Based in Melbourne, Australia, Timbercorp Limited (ASX:TIM) --
http://www.timbercorp.com.au/-- is engaged in the establishment,
development, marketing and management of primary industry-based
projects, the acquisition of land, water rights and infrastructure
to support these projects, and the provision of finance to growers
in these projects.  The company is also involved in eucalypt and
olive oil processing operations, asset development, asset
management, the sale of agricultural assets and holding
investments in agricultural-related enterprises.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
April 24, 2009, Timbercorp called in voluntary administrators to
the company and its subsidiaries.  The company appointed Mark
Korda and Leanne Chesser of KordaMentha as voluntary
administrators.  "The company had been hurt by the combined impact
of declining global asset values, tightening credit, the economic
downturn and drought," according to a statement issued by
Kordamentha.

On June 29, 2009, the creditors voted unanimously to wind up the
41 companies in the Timbercorp Group and put them into
liquidation.

GITI TIRE: Moody's Downgrades Corporate Family Rating to 'B3'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded GITI Tire Ltd's corporate
family rating to B3 from B2 and senior unsecured bond rating to
Caa1 from B3.  The ratings outlook is stable.  This concludes the
rating review initiated on September 15, 2009.

"The rating action was driven by Moody's concern that GITI's high
financial leverage, which is weak for its previous rating, is
unlikely to improve by any material extent amid the challenging
global automotive market," says Wonnie Chu, a Moody's Analyst.

"While the company's operating performance in recent months is on
an improving trend, it remains uncertain whether it can be
sustained as most of the margin expansion was driven by lower raw
material prices which have since risen again," says Chu, also
Moody's Lead Analyst for the company.

In addition, demand from GITI's export markets remains weak and
recent tariffs imposed by the US government on Passenger Car
Radial imports could further pressure GITI's profitability.  As
such, the company's adjusted debt/ebitda (including notes
payables), based on Moody's estimates, is expected to remain high
at around 6x over the next 1-2 years, assuming a moderate increase
in raw material prices.

The rating action also reflects GITI's volatile operating
performance.  The company is exposed to commodity price movements
given raw material costs account for approximately 70% of its
total sales.  The company's quarterly gross margin has
historically been in the range of 10% and 20% on the back of
volatile raw material prices and pricing pressure resulting from
weak market demand.

Such volatile earnings, together with GITI's weak capital
structure, with adjusted debt/cap in excess of 70% and heavy
reliance on short-term debt, heighten the company's business and
financial risks and position the company more appropriately at the
low single B rating level.

The B3 rating also considers GITI's strong competitive position in
China's growing market, and low-cost structure when compared with
its global peers.  In addition, its diversified product mix -- in
FY2008 Truck & Bus Radial accounted for 50% of sales, PCR
accounted for 40%, and Bias 10%, as well as its high proportion of
sales for the replacement market (80% of total sales) and domestic
market (65%) could serve as a stabilizing factor for its operating
performance.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectations that GITI will
continue to receive support from its relationship banks and roll
over its short-term debt.  It also reflects Moody's expectations
that the company will have sufficient cushion on its balance sheet
to withstand the current challenging global automotive market and
will recover its profitability over the next few years.

The rating could face upward pressure if GITI 1) improves its
capital structure by lengthening its debt maturing profile and/or
reducing its total debt outstanding; and/or 2) prudently manages
its operations and capex, such that adjusted debt/EBITDA falls
below 4.5x on a sustained basis.

GITI's ratings could be downgraded if its 1) quarterly performance
weakens further due to the prolonged industry downturn, such that
debt/EBITDA exceeds 7-8x; 2) liquidity profile tightens as a
result of difficulties rolling over its bank debt; and/or 3)
evidence emerges of cash leakage/upstreaming to group companies
and shareholders.

The last rating action with regard to GITI was taken on
September 15, 2009, when its ratings were put on review for
possible downgrade.

GITI Tire Pte Ltd. the largest motor vehicle tire manufacturer in
China.  It is a private company ultimately owned by the Liem
family, which has a Singaporean-Indonesian background.  GITI also
has a minority interest in PT Gajah Tunggal TBK (Caa1/stable), an
Indonesian tire producer.


NINE DRAGONS: S&P Gives Stable Outlook; Affirms 'BB' Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on China-
based packaging paperboard manufacturer Nine Dragons Paper
(Holdings) Ltd. to stable from negative.  At the same time, S&P
also affirmed the 'BB' long-term corporate credit rating on Nine
Dragons and the 'BB-' issue rating on the company's outstanding
US$47.6 million senior unsecured notes due April 2013.

"We revised the outlook to stable to reflect the improvement in
Nine Dragons' credit profile following a stronger financial
performance over the past six months.  Nine Dragons' credit
profile is further supported by the stabilization of the company's
sales performance.  This improvement reflects the company's
revised focus on domestic rather than export-related clients, with
the aim of mitigating the sharp drop in overseas demand," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Judy Kwok-Cheung.

The company's EBTIDA margin increased materially to 22.6% at the
end of June 2009, compared with 12.3% at the end of December 2008.
Profitability improved because raw material costs returned to a
more modest level as Nine Dragons largely depleted its inventory
of higher-cost raw materials over that period.

Domestic sales represented 80.2% of Nine Dragons' total sales as
at June 30, 2009, compared with 61.6% as at June 30, 2008.  S&P
expects the company to continue to leverage on the more favorable
domestic economic conditions, which are attributable in part to
the Chinese government's stimulation package.

"We affirmed the rating because S&P expects Nine Dragons' cash
flow protection measures to remain weak, but gradually recover and
stabilize over the next 12 months.  In S&P's view, less-volatile
raw material prices and Nine Dragons' sound market position within
China should be supportive of the company's future earnings and
cash flow generation," said Ms. Kwok-Cheung.

"Nine Dragons has materially scaled back its working capital and
significantly lowered capital spending compared with in fiscal
2008, and these measures provide some support for its current cash
flow position."

In S&P's view, management's aggressive growth appetite, combined
with the capital-intensive and highly cyclical nature of the
industry, continues to constrain the rating.  Nine Dragons
operates in a high growth market, and S&P therefore expect the
company to persist with its strategy to expand its presence in
China within the paperboard container manufacturing sector.  The
company is likely to retain a high gearing appetite to fund
potential growth.  Nine Dragons has higher leverage than its peers
even though it has materially lowered its ratio of net borrowings
to total equity, which stood at 82.4% as at June 30, 2009,
compared with 102.7% as at Dec. 31, 2008.  The debt reduction is
attributable to Nine Dragons' repurchase of more than 84% of its
US$300 million senior unsecured notes due April 2013 and the
repayment of a significant amount of bank borrowings over the past
12 months.

Nine Dragons' financial performance over the next 12 months should
benefit from greater demand, given a more entrenched recovery in
the general domestic market, as well as more stabilized raw
material pricing.  A stronger financial performance could offset
the impact of the weak external market.  In S&P's view, Nine
Dragons' improved financial flexibility and satisfactory liquidity
position should provide some buffer against the possible negative
impact on the company's financial risk profile if the market
deteriorates materially.  In addition, S&P expects Nine Dragons to
take a cautious approach to future expansion, with a slower pace
and lower magnitude in the next 12 months compared with in 2008.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR56.5 Million Post shipment Credit   P4 (Assigned)
   INR18.5 Million Packing Credit         P4 (Assigned)

The rating reflects Balar Exports' weak financial risk profile,
marked by low net worth, and weak debt protection measures; the
firm has delayed servicing of repayments on an unrated term loan
facility in recent months.  The rating also factors in the firm's
below-average business risk profile, marked by small scale of
operations in the diamond industry, and exposure to risks relating
to the weak global demand for polished diamonds.  These weaknesses
are, however, partially offset by the benefits that the firm
derives from its promoters' experience in the diamond business.

Set up in 1997 as a partnership firm, Balar Exports manufactures
and trades in rough and polished diamonds of all cuts, colors,
carats, and clarity.  The firm has its head quarters in Mumbai,
and a manufacturing unit at Surat.  The firm is not a sight-holder
and imports its rough requirements from diamond traders in Belgium
and other European countries.  Balar Exports reported a profit
after tax (PAT) of INR52.9 million on net sales of INR748.3
million for 2007-08 (refers to financial year, April 1 to
March 31), as against a PAT of INR20.9 million on net sales of
INR565.7 million for 2007-08.


GOEL & ASSOCIATES: CRISIL Rates INR30MM Cash Credit Limits at 'B'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B/Stable/P4' to the bank
facilities of Goel & Associates.

   Facilities                          Ratings
   ----------                          -------
   INR30 Million Cash Credit Limits*   B/Stable (Assigned)
   INR50 Million Bank Guarantee**      P4 (Assigned)

   * Includes proposed limit of INR5 million
   ** Includes proposed limit of INR27.5 million

The ratings reflect Goel's small scale of operations in the
construction industry, low net worth, and exposure to risks
relating to geographical concentration in its revenue profile.
These weaknesses are, however, partially offset by Goel's healthy
revenue growth, and comfortable order book position.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Goel will benefit from the growth prospects
for the civil construction industry, despite the firm's exposure
to risks relating to revenue concentration in one state
Chhattisgarh.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if Goel
strengthens its business risk profile by diversifying its revenue
base, while maintaining current operating margins.  Conversely,
the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if Goel's financial risk
profile deteriorates on account of additional debt-funded capital
expenditure.

                      About Goel & Associates

Goel is a partnership firm set up in 1995 by Mr. Navin Goel and
his father Mr. R C Goel.  The firm undertakes civil construction
activities such as construction of housing complexes in
Chattisgarh.  The firm has executed orders only for Chhatisgarh
Housing Board since 2004.  Goel reported a profit after tax (PAT)
of INR1.3 million on net sales of INR134million for 2008-09
(refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT
of INR0.08 million on net sales of INR74 million for 2007-08.


ICICI BANK: Sells 4.41% Stake in 3i Infotech
--------------------------------------------
The Times of India reports that ICICI Bank Ltd has sold 4.41%
stake in software services provider 3i Infotech for INR46.17 crore
in open market transactions.

Citing Bombay Stock Exchange data, the report discloses the bank
has sold 28.42 lakh equity shares of the IT firm at a price of
INR79.79 per piece aggregating to INR22.67 crore.  The bank also
sold 29.35 lakh shares at a price of INR80.05 per piece totalling
INR23.49 crore, the report notes citing data from National Stock
Exchange.

ICICI Bank held 9.62% stake in 3i Infotech for the quarter ended
June, according to a shareholding information obtained by the
Times of India.

Headquartered in Mumbai, India, ICICI Bank Limited (NYSE:IBN) --

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
September 28, 2009, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed
the 'BBB-' rating on ICICI Bank Ltd.'s senior unsecured notes, and
the 'BB' rating on its hybrid Tier 1 notes, under the bank's
revised US$5 billion medium-term note program.  At the same time,
Standard & Poor's has withdrawn its indicative ratings on the
upper Tier 2 and the lower Tier 2 bond tranches, which were
available under the previous version of the MTN program.
Following the recent revision to the program, these tranches no
longer exist.  There are no outstanding rated issues under these
tranches.


INDIRA SECURITIES: CRISIL Rates INR130MM Bank Facility at 'P4'
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'P4' rating to the bank facility of Indira
Securities Pvt Ltd.

   Facility                 Ratings
   --------                 -------
   INR130.0 Million Bank    P4 (Assigned)
     Guarantee Facility

   *Includes INR20 Million of Proposed Bank Guarantee Facility

The rating reflects ISPL's adequate capitalization. This rating
strength is partially offset by ISPL's modest market position in
the retail equity broking business.  The rating also factors in
the company's modest earnings profile and exposure to
uncertainties inherent in equity markets.

Indira Securities Pvt Ltd. was set up as a partnership firm in
1994; it received a corporate license in 2007.  The company is
engaged in the business of retail equity broking.  It offers
broking services in cash market trading, and in futures and
options trading in equities.  The company is a member of the
National Stock Exchange, Bombay Stock Exchange, and Multi
Commodity Exchange (MCX).  ISPL has 9 branches and 124 sub-
brokers, mainly in Madhya Pradesh.  As on March 31, 2009, the
company had 20,483 retail clients.


JIVANLAL JOITARAM: CRISIL Puts 'BB+' Rating on Cash Credit
----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB+/Stable/P4+' to the bank
facilities of M/s Jivanlal Joitaram Patel.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR130.0 Million Cash Credit     BB+/Stable (Rating Assigned)
   INR150.0 Million Bank Guarantee  P4+ (Rating Assigned)

The ratings reflect JJP's strong track record in the road
construction business, healthy order book, and average financial
risk profile, supported by interest-free, unsecured loans from
promoters.  These strengths are, however, partially offset by the
firm's small scale of operations in the intensely-competitive
construction industry, and exposure to risks relating to
geographical and customer concentration in its revenue profile.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that JJP will maintain a stable business risk
profile over the medium term, supported by a healthy order book.
The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the firm enhances its
operating profitability and diversifies its revenue profile
substantially.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' if the firm's projects face time and cost overruns, or
if its financial profile deteriorates substantially, or if it
undertakes debt-funded capital expenditure.

                      About Jivanlal Joitaram

Set up in 1979, JJP undertakes civil construction activities such
as construction of bitumen roads for government and semi-
government bodies in Gujarat and parts of Madhya Pradesh.  The
firm is an approved 'AA' contractor with the Government of Gujarat
and an 'A-V' contractor with the Public Works Department (PWD) of
the Government of Madhya Pradesh.  The firm has also executed
projects for organizations such as Oil and Natural Gas Corporation
(ONGC), Kandla Port Trust, and Roman Tarmat Ltd.  JJP reported a
profit after tax (PAT) of INR11.1 million on net sales of INR513.7
million for 2007-08 (refers to financial year, April 1 to
March 31), as against a PAT of INR5.3 million on net sales of
INR 305.2 million for 2006-07.


KRAFT LAND: CRISIL Assigns 'B/P4' to Various Bank Facilities
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B/Stable/P4' to the bank
facilities of Kraft Land (India).

   Facilities                            Ratings
   ----------                            -------
   INR16.5 Million Cash Credit Limit     B/Stable (Assigned)
   INR5.0 Million Proposed Long Term     B/Stable (Assigned)
                 Bank Loan Facilities
   INR15.0 Million Pre Shipment Credit   P4 (Assigned)
   INR75.0 Million Post Shipment Credit  P4 (Assigned)
   INR5.0 Million Letter of Credit       P4 (Assigned)
   INR5.0 Million Bank Guarantee         P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect Kraft Land's weak financial risk profile
marked by small net worth and average debt protection measures,
and exposure to risks relating to customer concentration in its
revenue profile.  These weaknesses are, however, partially offset
by the benefits that Kraft Land derives from the experience of its
promoters in trading in the Ukraine market.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Kraft Land will maintain a stable business
risk profile over the medium term on the back of established
relations with customers and suppliers.  The outlook may be
revised to 'Positive' in case of more than expected improvement in
Kraft Land's operating income/profitability and/or diversification
of customer base; or to 'Negative' if the firm faces delays in
recovery of dues from customers, or undertakes large debt-funded
capital expenditure, leading to deterioration in its debt
protection measures.

                         About Kraft Land

Kraft Land, set up in 1987, trades in stainless steel utensils,
readymade garments, toiletries (shaving cream and toothpaste), oil
seeds, rice, and sports goods.  The firm has two partners, Mr.
Dilbagh Singh Sachdeva and Ms. Gurjit Kaur.  A 100% export-
oriented unit, it derives its revenues entirely from Ukraine.  The
firm has two facilities in New Delhi for the packaging of its
products. Kraft Land reported a profit after tax (PAT) of
INR 2 million on net sales of INR 290 million for 2008-09 (refers
to financial year, April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of
INR 8 million on net sales of INR 300 million for 2007-08.


MAA BHAGWATI: CRISIL Assigns 'B' Ratings on Bank Facilities
-----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B/Stable/P4' to the bank
facilities of Maa Bhagwati Rice Mill.

   Facilities                          Ratings
   ----------                          -------
   INR 95.0 Million Cash Credit        B/Stable(Assigned)
   INR 8.4 Million Term Loan           B/Stable(Assigned)
   INR 10.6 Million Letter of Credit   P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect MBRM's weak financial risk profile, and the
company's exposure to risks relating to the working-capital-
intensive nature, and small scale of its operations in the rice
industry, to unfavorable changes in regulations governing the rice
industry, and to vagaries in the monsoons.  These weaknesses are,
however, partially offset by the healthy growth prospects of the
rice industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that MBRM will maintain a stable business risk
profile over the medium term on the back of established
relationships with suppliers and clients.  However, the firm's
financial risk profile may remain constrained by high gearing and
weak debt protection measures.  The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' if MBRM reports high growth in turnover, while
maintaining stable profitability, or if the promoters infuse funds
into the firm, improving its financial risk profile.  Conversely,
the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if the firm undertakes
large, debt-funded capital expenditure, or its revenue declines
owing to a slowdown in rice exports.

                        About Maa Bhagwati

Set up in 2006 as a partnership firm by Mr. Pawan Kumar Goyal and
Mr. Joginder Pal, MBRM undertakes milling and processing of
basmati rice.  It produces parboiled rice.  The firm sells via
intermediaries to rice exporters.  The firm's plant at Cheeka
(Haryana) has a milling capacity of 7 tonnes per hour (tph), and
sorting capacity of 8 tph.  The firm proposes to increase its
sorting capacity to 10 tph. MBRM reported a book profit of INR0.1
million on net sales of INR256.1 million for 2008-09 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31), as against a book profit of
INR3.8 million on net sales of INR168.8 million for 2007-08.


MACHINO TECHNO: CRISIL Assigns 'BB+' Ratings on Bank Facilities
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its rating of 'BB+/Stable' to the bank
facilities of Machino Techno Sales Ltd.

   Facilities                     Ratings
   ----------                     -------
   INR23 Million Cash Credit      BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR40 Million Term Loan        BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR7 Million Proposed Long     BB+/Stable (Assigned)
      Term Bank Loan Facility

The rating reflects Machino Techno's lower operating profitability
as compared to its peers and exposure to intense competition in
the automobile dealership industry.  These ratings strengths are,
however, partially offset by the company's average position in the
automobile dealership business, and healthy debt protection
measures.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL expects Machino Techno to maintain a stable credit risk
profile, backed by healthy debt protection measures and
established brand image.  Significant improvement in operating
margins may lend a positive bias to the rating; conversely,
increased exposure to group companies may lend a negative bias to
the rating.

                        About Machino Techno

Set up in 1955, Machino Techno initially imported machine tools
and complete plants from Czechoslovakia and Germany.  It
diversified in 1965 into manufacturing of box strapping, cold-
rolled strip, and steel wire and wire products.  The company
however, discontinued manufacturing operations owing to
unfavourable labour situations in West Bengal.  In 1984, the
company was appointed dealer to Maruti Suzuki vehicles in West
Bengal.  Machino Techno reported a profit after tax (PAT) of
INR12.3 million on net sales of INR736.9 million for 2008-09
(refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), as against a
PAT of INR16.7 million on net sales of INR700 million for 2007-08.


PARADISE PROPERTIES: CRISIL Rates INR164.0 Mln Term Loan at 'B+'
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its rating of 'B+/Stable' to the term loan
facility of Paradise Properties.

   INR164.0 Million Term Loan     B+/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects Paradise Properties' limited track record of
hotel operations, and exposure to risks related to the current
slowdown in the economy leading to constrained increase in average
room rents (ARRs).  These weaknesses are, however, partially
offset by the benefits that the firm derives from the promoters'
experience in the hospitality industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL expects Paradise Properties to maintain its credit risk
profile on the back of the promoters experience in the hotel
industry, and the tie-ups entered into by the Paradise Hotel,
leading to stable revenues.  The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' if the firm generates consistent revenues from the
Paradise Hotel, and improves its market share and profitability.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if the
hotel's occupancy rate deteriorates, and if decrease in ARRs leads
to reduced revenue per available room (RevPAR).

Paradise Properties is a partnership firm, owned by Mr. Pankaj
Saboo and his wife, Mrs. Manju Saboo.  Paradise Properties has
been floated for constructing and operating the Paradise Hotel in
Jaipur (Rajasthan).  The hotel commenced soft operations (limited
capacity) in March 2008, and became fully operational in October
2008. The hotel has 112 rooms (14 club class, 14 executive class,
and the rest deluxe class rooms).


PRADEEP METALS: CRISIL Puts 'BB+' on INR87.0 Million LT Loan
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB+/Stable/P4+' to the bank
facilities of Pradeep Metals Ltd.

   Facilities                           Ratings
   ----------                           -------
   INR115.0 Million Cash Credit         BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR87.0 Million Long Term Loan       BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR125.0 Million Bills Discounting   P4+ (Assigned)
   INR110.0 Million Packing Credit      P4+ (Assigned)
   INR5.0 Million Bank Guarantee        P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect the modest scale, and working-capital-
intensive nature, of PML's operations, and exposure to risks
relating to slowdown in key operating geographies, and
intensifying competition in the industrial forging market.  These
weaknesses are, however, partially offset by the benefits that the
company derives from its strong track record in the forgings
industry and established relations with its customers.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL expects PML to maintain its business risk profile in the
near to medium term.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if
the company's revenue profile and operating margins improve
considerably.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' if the company takes up large, debt-funded capital
expenditure over the medium term.

                       About Pradeep Metals

Set up in 1982 as a private limited company, PML manufactures
precision-closed die steel forgings.  Its manufacturing unit at
Rabale (Maharashtra) has a capacity of 12,000 tonnes per annum
(tpa), PML manufactures forgings for the defense, engineering,
petrochemical and automobile industries, both for the domestic and
international market.  The company employs modern technology for
manufacturing press forgings and has sophisticated tool-room
equipment.  PML reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR88 million
on net sales of INR749 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial
year, April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of INR36 million on
net sales of INR621 million for 2007-08.


RUNGTA PROJECTS: CRISIL Places 'C' Rating on INR300MM Cash Credit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'C/P4' to the bank facilities
of Rungta Projects Ltd.  The ratings reflect delays by RPL in
servicing its equipment finance obligations.

   Facilities                      Ratings
   ----------                      -------
   INR300 Million Cash Credit      C (Assigned)
   INR20 Million Proposed Long     C (Assigned)
       Term Bank Loan Facility
   INR330 Million Bank Guarantee   P4 (Assigned)

The ratings also factor in RPL's moderate financial risk profile
because of significant debt-funded capital expenditure, and its
high dependence on Coal India Ltd for revenue. The impact of these
weaknesses is mitigated by RPL's established presence in coal
mining services, its adequate operating efficiency, and strong
order book.

                         About Coal India

Set up in 1983 by Mr. R S Rungta, RPL provides open-cast coal
mining services and has a presence in overburden removal,
transportation of coal and overburden, civil construction, and
trading of coal and steel. RPL provides end-to-end and customized
services.

For 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), RPL
reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR165.1 million on net sales
of INR1741.1 million, against a PAT of INR70.2 million on net
sales of INR1400.7 million for the preceding year.


SANTPURIA ALLOYS: CRISIL Assigns 'B-/P4' Ratings to Bank Debts
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B-/Negative/P4' to the bank
facilities of Santpuria Alloys Pvt Ltd (Santpuria), which is part
of the Mongia group.

   Facilities                      Ratings
   ----------                      -------
   INR50 Million Cash Credit       B-/Negative (Assigned)
   INR100 Million Term Loan        B-/Negative (Assigned)
   INR5 Million Bank Guarantee     P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect Santpuria's exposure to risks relating to the
working capital-intensive nature of its operations, and large
capital expenditure (capex) plans over the medium term.  These
weaknesses are, however, partially offset by the company's average
business risk profile, supported by high integration within the
Mongia group and established brand presence in the steel industry.

As part of this rating exercise, CRISIL has consolidated the
business and financial risk profiles of Santpuria and Mongia Hi-
Tech Pvt Ltd (Mongia).  This is because the two companies,
collectively referred to as the Mongia group are under a common
management, in similar lines of business, and have fungible funds.
Moreover, Mongia is Santpuria's sole customer; Santpuria enables
backward integration of Mongia's operations.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL believes that the Mongia group's liquidity will remain
strained on account of its capital expenditure (capex) plans.  The
ratings may be downgraded in case accruals are lower than
projected. Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Stable' if
accruals are considerably higher than projected, or if the debt
taken to fund capex is lower than expected.

                          About the Group

Set up in 1974, the Mongia group manufactures sponge iron, ingots,
thermo-mechanically treated (TMT) bars, and other long products.
In 2008, the group acquired Nanak Hi-tech Pvt Ltd, which has the
capacity to manufacture 50-60 tonnes of ingots per day. The group
sells its finished products under the brand 'Mongia'.

Mongia was set up in 1995 and currently has a capacity of 210
metric tonnes. It manufactures Ingot, Bars, Strips, Profile and
Tube.

The Mongia group reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR18
million on net sales of INR495.4 million for 2008-09 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of INR13.1
million on net sales of INR417.6 million for 2007-08.

                      About Santpuria Alloys

Santpuria was incorporated in 2004 and its operations started in
late 2005-06.  It has an installed capacity of 60,000 MT for
manufacturing Sponge Iron.


SAPNA GEMS: Low Net Worth Cues CRISIL to Assign 'P4' Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'P4' rating to the bank facilities of
Sapna Gems.

   Facilities                                  Ratings
   ----------                                  -------
   INR15.0 Million Packing Credit *            P4 (Assigned)
   INR60.0 Million Post Shipment Credit **     P4 (Assigned)

   * Packing credit facility is fully interchangeable with Post
     Shipment Credit Facility.

   ** Inter changeable with Packing credit to the tune of
      INR7.5 million.

The rating reflects Sapna's small scale of operations in the
fragmented diamond industry, and weak financial risk profile
marked by low net worth and weak debt protection measures.  The
rating also factors in Sapna's exposure to volatility in diamond
prices and to fluctuation in the value of the Indian rupee.  The
impact of these weaknesses is mitigated by the benefits the firm
derives from the industry experience of its promoters.

                          About Sapna Gems

Set up in 1978 by Mr. Popatlal Shah and Mr. Dayabhai Shah, Sapna
trades in polished diamonds.  The partnership firm has offices in
Mumbai and Hong Kong.  The firm has a small polished diamond
manufacturing facility, which contributes around 5 per cent to its
revenues.  Mr. Dayabhai exited the firm in 1994.  Currently,
Mr. Poptalal Shah and Mr. Devendra Shah are the equal partners.

Sapna reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR1.9 million on net
sales of INR315 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR1.4 million on net sales
of INR258 million for 2007-08.


SEVEN STAR: CRISIL Assigns 'B+' and 'P4' Ratings on Bank Debts
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B+/Stable/P4' to the bank
facilities of Seven Star Steels Ltd.

   Facilities                          Ratings
   ----------                          -------
   INR85 Million Cash Credit Limits    B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR72 Million Term Loan             B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR6.3 Million Proposed Long Term   B+/Stable (Assigned)
                  Bank Loan Facility
   INR2.5 Million Bank Guarantee       P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect SSSL's weak financial risk profile,
significant capital expenditure plans over the medium term,
marginal market presence, and exposure to risks relating to
cyclicality in the steel industry.  These weaknesses are partially
offset by the benefits that the company derives from its moderate
operating efficiency, and expected forward integration of
operations.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that SSSL will maintain a stable business risk
profile supported by its operating efficiency.  However, SSSL's
financial risk profile will remain constrained owing to its small
scale of operations, low accruals and significant capital
expenditure plans.  The outlook could be revised to 'Positive' if
the company's profitability and net worth improve substantially.
Conversely, the outlook could be revised to 'Negative' if SSSL's
operating margins decline due to low capacity utilization, or the
company undertakes additional large, debt-funded capital
expenditure.

                        About Seven Star

The company acquired by Nirmal Kumar Bathwal and family in
November 2007, manufactures sponge iron. SSSL increased its
capacities in February 2008. SSSL's manufacturing facility at
Jharsuguda (Orissa) has a capacity to produce 60,000 tonnes per
annum of sponge iron. SSSL reported a net loss of INR10 million on
operating income of INR613 million for 2008-09 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31), as against a net loss of
INR3 million on operating income of INR245 million for 2007-08.


SISCO RESEARCH: CRISIL Places 'BB-' Rating on INR35MM LT Loan
-------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB-/Stable/P4+' to the bank
facilities of Sisco Research Laboratories Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                         Ratings
   ----------                         -------
   INR35.0 Million Long Term Loan     BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR25.5 Million Cash Credit        BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR2.5 Million Packing Credit      P4+ (Assigned)
   INR2.0 Million Bills Discounting   P4+ (Assigned)
                    & Bills Purchase
   INR1.0 Million Bank Guarantee      P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect SRLPL's exposure to risks relating to the
small scale, and working-capital-intensive nature, of its
operations as a chemicals manufacturer.  These weaknesses are,
however, partially offset by SRLPL's established presence in the
laboratory chemicals business, and average financial risk profile.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL expects SRLPL to maintain a stable credit risk profile,
supported by a moderate gearing, and its established presence in
the laboratory chemicals segment.  The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' if SRLPL improves its working capital management
considerably, and scales up its operations while maintaining
current profitability.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' if the company's liquidity deteriorates further, led by
delay in commissioning of new plant or significant increase in
working capital requirements; any large debt-funded capital
expenditure may also drive a revision in outlook to 'Negative'.

                       About Sisco Research

Established in 1974, SRLPL is an ISO 9001-2000 certified company
that manufactures laboratory chemicals such as organic and
inorganic reagents, specialty chemicals, and bio chemicals.  The
company is managed by Mr. Surendra Kumar Agarwal, his son Mr.
Ramesh Agarwal, and grandson Mr. Akash Agarwal.  SRLPL has
manufacturing units at Kashi Meera, Turbhe and Taloja (all around
Mumbai), and an aggregate manufacturing capacity of around 200,000
kilo litres per annum (klpa); the company is commissioning a new
unit at Taloja, with a capacity of 100,000 klpa.  SRLPL reported a
profit after tax (PAT) of INR5.35 million on net sales of
INR104.3 million for 2007-08 (refers to financial year, April 1
to March 31), as against a PAT of INR4.8 million on net sales of
INR95.7 million for 2006-07.


SOMA TEXTILES: CRISIL Reaffirms Rating on Bank Debt at 'D'
----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has reaffirmed its rating on Soma Textiles and Industries
Ltd's non-convertible debenture program at 'D'.

   INR19.1 Million Non-Convertible    D (Reaffirmed)
           Debenture Programme

The company has rescheduled the payments on the instruments under
a corporate debt restructuring package in March 2009.  The
reaffirmation reflects CRISIL's expectation that Soma is likely to

SRI DURGA: Weak Financial Risk Profile Cues CRISIL 'BB+' Ratings
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB+/Stable/P4+' to the bank
facilities of Sri Durga Condev Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                            Ratings
   ----------                            -------
   INR330 Million Cash Credit Limits     BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR40 Million Term Loan               BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR10 Million Proposed Long Term      BB+/Stable (Assigned)
                  Bank Loan facility
   INR20 Million Standby line of Credit  P4+ (Assigned)
   INR550 Million Bank Guarantee         P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect SDCPL's weak financial risk profile, and the
working capital-intensive nature of its operations.  These
weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that the company
derives from its healthy order book.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that SDCPL will benefit from the growth prospects
in the civil construction industry.  The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' if SDCPL strengthens its business risk profile by
enhancing segmental and geographical diversity in its revenue
profile, while maintaining operating margins.  Conversely, any
deterioration in SDCPL's financial risk profile owing to large,
additional, debt-funded capital expenditure, or acquisition plans,
may lead to a revision in the outlook to 'Negative'.

                          About Sri Durga

Set up in 1987 by Mr. Pramod Rath and his family as a partnership
firm, SDCPL (formerly, Sri Durga Construction) undertakes civil
construction activities including the construction of roads, dams,
and railway lines. It has executed National Highway projects, and
several dam and railway projects in Orissa.  In 2000, the company
became a closely held company, with its partners continuing as
directors.

SDCPL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR37 million on net
sales of INR1085 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of INR35 million on net
sales of INR723 million for 2007-08.


SRINIVASA GAYITHRI: CRISIL Rates INR527.50MM LT Loan at 'B+'
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL's rating on Srinivasa Gayithri Resource Recovery Ltd's bank
facilities continues to reflect SGRRL's exposure to project
implementation risks, and the weak credit profiles of its
counterparties.  The company is implementing a greenfield
municipal solid waste (MSW)-based power project.  The impact of
these weaknesses is mitigated by adequate supply of raw materials
to the company, and its management's experience in executing power
projects.

   Facility                             Rating
   --------                             ------
   INR527.50 Million Long-Term Loan     B+/Stable
   (Enhanced from INR387.5 Million)

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL expects SGRRL's power plant to commence commercial
operations by December 2010, thereby supporting the company's cash
flow requirements.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if
SGRRL, upon commissioning its power project, reports strong cash
flows as a result of high plant load factor (PLF), and healthy
operating efficiencies.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' in case of further time and cost overruns in the
project, or if the company's cash flows are adversely affected by
unplanned plant outages.

                      About Srinivasa Gayithri

Srinivasa Gayithri Resource Recovery Ltd, a public-private
partnership project between Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) and
Mr. Ramesh Bingi and other promoters, was incorporated in 2003.
The company is setting up an MSW processing facility and a power
plant at Mandur (near Bengaluru).  The project is likely to begin
commercial production by December 2010.


SUNRISE TIMPLY: Low Profitability Prompts CRISIL 'B+' Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B+/Stable/P4' to the bank
facilities of Sunrise Timply Company Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                           Ratings
   ----------                           -------
   INR25 Million Cash Credit Limits*    B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR100 Million Letter of Credit@     P4 (Assigned)

   *Includes proposed amount of INR20 million
   @Includes proposed amount of INR40 million

The ratings reflect Sunrise Timply's weak financial risk profile,
marked by low profitability and net worth, and exposure to risks
relating to dependence on Malaysia and West Africa for timber
supplies.  These weaknesses are partially offset by the promoters'
experience in trading in timber.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Sunrise Timply's financial risk profile will
remain strained, and debt protection measures, weak, over the
medium term. The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the
company's profitability and financial risk profile improve
significantly owing to increased accruals or equity infusion.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if the
company's profitability declines sharply, or if the company takes
on large debt to fund capital expenditure.

                       About Sunrise Timply

Set up in 2000 by Mr. Gopal Krishna Bagla, Sunrise Timply trades
in timber logs. It imports timber from Malaysia and South Africa
for sale to local saw mill owners in West Bengal.

Sunrise Timply posted a provisional net profit of INR0.7 million
on operating income of INR160 million for 2008-09 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31), as against a profit after
tax (PAT) of INR0.6 million on operating income of INR74 million
for 2007-08.


TROPICOOL FOODS: Delay in Loan Payment Prompts CRISIL Junk Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'D/P5' to the bank facilities
of Tropicool Foods Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                                  Ratings
   ----------                                  -------
   INR38.80 Million Long Term Loan             D (Assigned)
   INR7.00 Million Cash Credit-Stock*          D (Assigned)
   INR9.50 Million Cash Credit - Book Debt**   D (Assigned)

   * includes sub limit of INR6.0 million of Export packing
     credit

   **includes sub limit of INR8.5 million of Foreign Bills
     discounting

The rating reflects the delay by TFPL in servicing its term loan
of State Bank of India.  This is because of TFPL's weak liquidity.

Established in 2006 by Mr. Vivek Nayak and Mr. Prakash Kanoor,
TFPL is in the business of processing of vegetables and fruits
through the individually quick frozen (IQF)-based method.  Based
at Hubli, TFPL has a processing capacity of around 2 tonnes per
hour and started commercial operations in April, 2009.  The
company exports its products to the US, Europe and the Middle
East.

TFPL posted a net loss of INR0.03 million on net sales of
INR1.1 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1
to March 31).


VS COTTON: CRISIL Assigns 'B+' on Various Bank Facilities
---------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B+/Stable' to the bank
facilities of VS Cotton.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR62.50 Million Cash Credit Limit     B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR5.0 Million Overdraft Facility      B+/Stable(Assigned)
   INR12.50 Million Working Capital       B+/Stable (Assigned)
                        Demand Loan
   INR10.0 Million Term Loan              B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR4.5 Million Proposed Long Term      B+/Stable (Assigned)
                   Facility

The ratings reflect VSC's weak financial risk profile, and
exposure to risks relating to the partnership nature of its
business, the working-capital-intensive nature of its operations,
and to unfavorable changes in government policy.  These weaknesses
are, however, partially offset by the benefits that VSC derives
from the experience of its promoters in the industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that VS Cotton (VSC) will maintain a stable
financial risk profile on the back of improving sales and cash
accruals.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if improved
operating margins lead to stronger cash accruals, resulting in
turn, in a stronger capital structure.  Conversely, the rating may
have a negative bias if reduced operating margins cause
deterioration in cash accruals for VSC over the medium term.

                          About VS Cotton

VS Cotton, which began commercial operations in September 2006, is
in the cotton ginning and pressing business.  Its facility at
Amreli (Gujarat) has capacity to process around 225 bales of
cotton per day.  VSC reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR1.4
million on net sales of INR350.1 million for 2008-09 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of INR1.2
million on net sales of INR335.8 million for 2007-08.

BANK CENTURY: Auditors Reveal US$49-Mln Suspicious Withdrawals
--------------------------------------------------------------
Jakarta Globe reports that the Supreme Audit Agency has discovered
that undisclosed parties withdrew more than US$49 million from PT
Bank Century just after Bank Indonesia provided it with an
emergency injection of short-term funds last November.

Citing leaked excerpts of a confidential preliminary report by the
audit agency, also known as the BPK, the Globe discloses that
IDR454.398 billion (US$47.2 million) in rupiah deposits was
withdrawn from Bank Century while it was being monitored by the
central bank, as well as US$2.22 million and SGD41,180
(US$29,200).

The Globe says the report did not identify who made the
withdrawals, nor did it reveal the specific dates of the
withdrawals.

As reported in Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on Sept. 17,
2009, The Jakarta Post said that the BPK aims to conclude its
final report in the audit of Bank Century's bailout that has
swollen to IDR6.76 trillion (US$676 million) before Oct. 19.

BPK Chairman Anwar Nasution said he would focus on examining Bank
Century since its establishment in 2004 from the merger of three
banks -- Bank Danpac, Bank Pikko and Bank CIC -- until the bank
received an injection of IDR6.76 trillion from the Deposit
Insurance Corporation (LPS).

The BPK would scrutinize Bank Century's balance of payments, which
turned negative in November last year and caused the government to
intervene via the LPS.

Bank Century is a relatively small lender with total assets of
IDR15 trillion (US$1.3 billion).  The Post said the government
decided to take over Bank Century -- the first such move since the
1997-1998 crisis -- to save it from collapse and restore
confidence in the banking sector.

                         About Bank Century

Headquartered in Jakarta, Indonesia, PT Bank Century Tbk --

Bank's products and services include deposits, savings, loans,

ORSO FUNDING: Fitch Downgrades Ratings on Three 2005-1 Notes
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded three classes of trust beneficiary
interest from Orso Funding CMBS 2005-1 Trust due January 2012, and
affirmed the other five classes following the implementation of
recently published criteria for Japanese CMBS surveillance.  Full
details of the rating actions are:

  -- JPY4.70 billion* Class A TBIs affirmed at 'AAA'; off RWN;
     Outlook Stable;

  -- JPY1.16 billion* Class B TBIs affirmed at 'AA'; off RWN;
     Outlook Stable;

  -- JPY1.06 billion* Class C TBIs affirmed at 'A'; off RWN;
     Outlook Stable;

  -- JPY0.96 billion* Class D TBIs affirmed at 'BBB'; off RWN;
     Outlook Stable;

  -- JPY1.01 billion* Class E TBIs downgraded to 'BB' from 'BBB-';
     off RWN; Outlook Negative;

  -- JPY0.15 billion* Class F TBIs downgraded to 'BB-' from 'BB';
     off RWN; Outlook Negative;

  -- JPY0.20 billion* Class G TBIs downgraded to 'B' from 'BB';
     off RWN; Outlook Negative; and

  -- Class X TBIs (dividend-only) affirmed at 'AAA'; Outlook
     Stable.

  * as of September 29, 2009

Classes E, F and G TBIs have been downgraded to reflect Fitch's
concern over potential recovery amounts from the one remaining
underlying loan which is backed by a single-tenanted office
building in Tokyo.  In its analysis and in line with recently
published criteria, the agency adopted a value for the property
which is 17.7% lower than the initial value.  This takes into
account the short remaining time to loan maturity date of January
2010.  The agency has assigned Negative Outlooks for these classes
due to the continued uncertainty about the future of the Japanese
commercial real estate market.

Classes A, B, C and D TBIs have been affirmed as a result of an
expected improvement in credit enhancement levels at the next TBI
payment date (in October 2009).  One underlying loan which
defaulted in April 2009 was paid in full in September 2009, and
the proceeds will be allocated for repayment of TBIs' principal on
a sequential basis at the next payment date.  Another loan was
also paid in full at its maturity date in September 2009 and the
proceeds will be allocated on a pro rata basis in line with
transaction documents.

Fitch believes the property is of good quality and is generating
strong cash flow which is expected to continue due to the length
and conditions of the current lease.  However, the agency has not
upgraded the four most senior classes due to the short time to
loan maturity.

The ratings on the dividend-only Class X TBIs address only the
likelihood of receiving dividend payments, while principal on the
related TBIs remain outstanding.

This transaction is a securitization of seven underlying loans
initially backed by 16 commercial properties.  To date, six
underlying loans have been repaid and therefore, the transaction
is currently secured by one underlying loan backed by one
property, together with repayments of the principal from two
underlying loans currently held at the trust account level.

Rating Outlooks have been published for all newly issued Asia
Pacific Structured Finance tranches since June 2008, and
concurrently with rating actions for tranches issued prior to June
2008.  Unlike a Rating Watch which notifies investors that there
is a reasonable probability of a rating change in the short term
as a result of a specific event, rating Outlooks indicate the
likely direction of any rating change over a one- to two-year
period.

The affirmations reflect the benefits of Bank of Nova Scotia's
(Scotia, 'AA-'/'F1+') increased stake in TBANK to 49% in February
2009 (from 25%); Thanachart Capital's holding in TBANK was
subsequently diluted to 50.9% from 74.9%.  The agency notes that
greater oversight and support of Scotia should help improve
TBANK's financial strength and performance in the medium-term.
However, key concerns include funding constraints, weaker asset
quality and high sector-concentration.

TBANK reported a net profit of THB1 billion in H109, a 37% drop
yoy despite stronger revenue, due to higher loan loss provisions
and operating expenses from network expansion.  The net interest
margin improved to 3.9% in H109 (2008: 3.5%) as a result of lower
funding costs.  NIM is expected to remain stable in H209 as
interest rates have bottomed out, but could weaken in 2010 as
monetary tightening begins.

Impaired loans at TBANK rose significantly to THB9.7 billion (3.5%
of total loans) at end-June 2009 from THB7.9 billion (2.9%) at
end-2008.  While reserve coverage appears strong (end-June 2009:
92.8%), the severe economic downturn could result in further
increases in NPLs and provisioning in H209 and 2010.

TBANK's Tier 1 and total capital ratios rose to 8.9% and 12.9%,
respectively, at end-June 2009 (2008: 8% and 11.2%, respectively)
mainly due to a THB2bn rights issue in May 2009.  The bank's plan
to acquire Siam City Bank, if successful, is expected to have
minimal impact on its Tier 1 capital as most of the funding is
likely to be supported by a capital injection from both TCAP and
Scotia.

TBANK is now the main operating entity within the Thanachart Group
(formerly National Finance) for commercial banking and other
related financial services in securities, fund management and
insurance.  Scotia is Canada's third-largest bank, with assets of
over USD500bn and major businesses in Canadian and international
banking as well as global capital markets and investment banking.

TCAP's ratings reflect its continued low leverage, with scope to
increase leverage to fund acquisitions.  As TCAP's remaining hire
purchase portfolio runs down, the company will be more reliant on
earnings growth and dividend payments from TBANK.

                         *********

Tuesday's edition of the TCR-AP delivers a list of indicative
prices for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.
Prices are obtained by TCR-AP editors from a variety of outside
sources during the prior week we think are reliable.   Those
sources may not, however, be complete or accurate.  The Tuesday
Bond Pricing table is compiled on the Friday prior to
publication.  Prices reported are not intended to reflect actual
trades.  Prices for actual trades are probably different.  Our
objective is to share information, not make markets in publicly
traded securities.  Nothing in the TCR-AP constitutes an offer
or solicitation to buy or sell any security of any kind.  It is
likely that some entity affiliated with a TCR-AP editor holds
some position in the issuers' public debt and equity securities
about which we report.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR-AP. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com

Friday's edition of the TCR-AP features a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets obtained by our editors based on the
latest balance sheets publicly available a day prior to
publication.  At first glance, this list may look like the
definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical
cost net of depreciation may understate the true value of a
firm's assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance
sheet for liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at
which equity securities trade in public market are determined by
more than a balance sheet solvency test.
