HIH INSURANCE: Liquidator Settles $450 Million Claim Over FAI
-------------------------------------------------------------
HIH Liquidator Tony McGrath has finally settled his $450 million
claim against FAI Insurance's financial advisers and reinsurers
for an undisclosed sum, Andrew Main at The Australian reports.

Mr. Main says the settlement had been held up by the intermittent
refusal of one of 200 former partners in auditor Andersen, which
had been brought in as the subject of a cross claim by the
defendants, to sign the settlement.

According to the report, Justice Patricia Bergin of the New South
Wales Supreme Court ratified the decision by all parties that they
would make a financial settlement in favor of the liquidator and
then all parties would drop claims against each other, in what was
threatening to become an extremely long drawn out case.

"It's a milestone," The Australian quoted Mr. McGrath as saying
after the brief court hearing.  "It will allow us to move forward
rather than stay locked up for years in litigation, which would
have compelled us to hold back further payments to creditors."

The Australian discloses that the biggest creditors of HIH now are
the state and federal governments, the latter of which put up some
$600 million in a fund to pay out insurance claimants.

The report relates Mr. McGrath said that to date he's been able to
pay out $1.2 billion to creditors of the defunct insurer, which
collapsed in March 2001 with a deficiency originally estimated at
$5.2 billion.  The Australian says that deficiency has since been
adjusted downwards to a number closer to $3.6 billion, although
that is still the biggest corporate collapse in Australian
history.

According to the report, Mr. McGrath said that to date he has paid
out 40 cents-to-the-dollar to insurance creditors of the FAI
company, which he hopes to lift to 50c, and 45c to creditors of
CIC -- a company HIH bought in the 1990s before FAI -- with a view
to paying out 60c in total to CIC creditors.

The Australian adds that the hardest hit creditors will be those
of the main insurer HIH Casualty and General, which incurred
losses of more than $1 billion on some disastrous forays in the
London insurance market.  Mr. McGrath said he hopes to increase
the payment of 18c in the dollar, made already, to 35c.

Mr. McGrath, as cited by The Australian, said he hoped to conclude
the major part of the liquidation by around 2014, 13 years after
its collapse, but noted that he still had some 2200 "open''
insurance claims to settle and that between 50 and 100 "long tail
claims", as they are called, were still coming in each quarter.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
May 15, 2006, The Australian said Mr. McGrath was planning to sue
FAI Insurances Limited and FAI General Insurance Company for
hundreds of millions of dollars in damages.  The lawsuit is
believed to be a move to recover cash for HIH creditors.  The
Australian related that Mr. McGrath's decision to commence
a damages action follows the NSW Supreme Court's appointment of
a special purpose liquidator -- Stephen Parbery from PPB -- to
FAI Insurances and FAI General.  Mr. Parbery's appointment on
May 4, 2006, came after Mr. McGrath, who was then liquidator to
both HIH and FAI, expressed his concern about a potential
conflict of interest.  The Australian recalled that HIH took over
FAI for AU$300 million in 1998.  The takeover has been partly
blamed for HIH's collapse in March 2001.  Mr. McGrath had earlier
initiated suits against reinsurers, from which he has recovered
around AU$2 billion.  He has also previously named Federal MP and
parliamentary secretary Malcolm Turnbull as defendants in a legal
action on behalf of HIH creditors.  Mr. Turnbull was the chairman
of Goldman Sachs Australia, who was FAI's adviser at the time of
HIH's takeover.

                        About HIH Insurance

HIH Insurance Limited was a publicly listed company in Australia.
Prior to its collapse in 2001, the HIH Group was the second
largest general insurer in Australia and had operations in many
other countries.

On March 15, 2001, HIH Insurance Limited and a number of its
subsidiaries were placed into provisional liquidation.
Subsequently, on Aug. 27, 2001, the companies that were in
provisional liquidation were placed into liquidation.

Schemes of Arrangement are in place for eight of those companies.
The eight licensed insurance companies within the group were
placed into Schemes of Arrangement in Australia  on May 30, 2006.
Four of these companies were also placed into Schemes of
Arrangement in the UK on June 13, 2006.

The Scheme Administrators have made initial payments to certain
creditors and will make further payments over the coming years,
HIH said on its Web site.


TRANSCON: Goes Into Liquidation; 30 Jobs Affected
-------------------------------------------------
ABC News reports that steel company Transcon has gone into
liquidation, leaving 30 workers out of job and a financier five
and a half million dollars out of pocket.  The report relates
Transcon steel workers said they have been aware for a few weeks
that work in the company had been running out and it was
struggling with cash flow.

The ABC says the company was reportedly involved in a dispute with
a creditor and was unable to secure additional finance to continue
operations.

According to the report, liquidator Stuart Reid of Meertens
Chartered Accountants said it would be months before the company's
assets are divided.

"The liquidator is considering the best way of realizing the
assets of the company, which are significant running into the
several million," the report quoted Mr. Reid as saying.  "Once we
choose the most appropriate method to realize, we will seek to
maximize the return to creditors."

Transcon is a Darwin, Australia-based steel company.


TRANSURBAN GROUP: Future Fund Ends Talk With Canadian Pension Fund
------------------------------------------------------------------
Malcolm Scott and Sarah McDonald at Bloomberg News report that
Future Fund, Australia's sovereign wealth fund, has terminated
talks with two Canadian pension funds on joining a AU$6.8 billion
bid for Transurban Group.  Bloomberg relates the AU$66.2 billion
Future Fund said in a statement it ended discussions with Canada
Pension Plan Investment Board and Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan,
without giving a reason.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
February 18, 2010, Bloomberg said Transurban Group hasn't received
any further takeover approaches from two Canadian pension funds
since rejecting their AU$6.8 billion offer in November 2009.

The TCR-AP reported on Nov. 5, 2009, Transurban Group rejected
unsolicited takeover offer from Canada Pension Plan Investment
Board and Ontario Teachers' Pension plan.

In a statement to the Australian Stock Exchange, Transurban said
that the proposal received was incomplete, highly conditional and
non-binding, which if implemented, would involve a change of
control of the group through a scheme of arrangement.

According to Bloomberg, the cash and stock offer from the Canadian
funds, Transurban's second- and third-biggest shareholders, valued
Transurban shares at AU$5.25 each.

COUNTRY GARDEN: Moody's Confirms 'Ba2' Corporate Family Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has confirmed Country Garden Holdings
Company Limited's Ba2 corporate family rating and Ba3 senior
unsecured bond rating.  The ratings outlook is negative.

This concludes the rating review for possible downgrade initiated
on 23 December 2009 and following Country Garden's announcement
that it had entered into agreement to participate in the Asian
Games City Project in Guangzhou.

"The rating action reflects Moody's expectation that Country
Garden may consider including other parties who are interested in
the Asian Games City Centre and that the presale proceeds will
fund part of its land payments," says Peter Choy, a Moody's Vice
President & Senior Credit Officer, adding "The ability to fund
such payments would mitigate Moody's concerns that the project
would strain the company's liquidity."

"Furthermore, Country Garden's products -- sold at affordable
prices -- and its niche markets in second- and third-tier cities
are likely to be less affected by the current tightening in
regulatory measures, when compared to other developers," says
Choy.

"Its portfolio of over 60 projects also provides good
diversification and minimizes the risk of a material decline in
sales volumes," adds Choy.

Its Ba2 corporate family rating further reflects its strong sales
execution in the suburban markets of economically strong Guangdong
Province.  In addition, it is large in size, and has the advantage
of low land costs.  Such a situation offers pricing flexibility.

Country Garden continues to generate stable contracted sales --
RMB4 billion in the first two months of 2010 -- and which fund its
working capital needs and support its liquidity position.  Its
stable sales have also meant a resilient track record in a down
market.

At the same time, the rating is tempered by Country Garden's need
for debt funding to support its rapid growth model, which will
keep its leverage at the high end for its rating level.  The
rating also reflects its reliance on cash flow contributions from
Guangdong Province.

The negative rating outlook reflects its need to arrange
refinancing for the US$600 million in convertible bonds with put
option in February 2011 and its relatively weaker credit metrics
for its rating level.

Upward rating pressure is unlikely in the near term, given the
negative outlook.

However, the outlook could return to stable if the company
maintains sufficient balance sheet cash, operating cash flow, and
committed liquidity lines to meet land payments, dividends and
debt repayments on a rolling 12-month basis.  Moreover, its debt
leverage needs to be improved, such that Adjusted Debt/Total
Capitalization maintains at 45%, or below on a sustainable basis.

Meanwhile, downward rating pressure could emerge if Country Garden
(1) experiences difficulty in implementing its current business
plan; (2) sees its profit margins erode further; (3) fails to
produce a solid plan to refinance its convertible bonds by 1H2010;
and/or (4) suffers from a further weakening in the Chinese
property market, such that its operating cash flow is weaker than
anticipated.

In such a situation, a downgrade could be considered if its EBITDA
margin falls below 20%; Adjusted Debt/Total Capitalization rises
above 50%; EBITDA/Interest declines below 3.5x-4.0x on a sustained
basis; and/or the company reports continuous negative operating
cash flow (before land payments), which further weakens its
liquidity.

The last rating action on Country Garden was taken on 23 December
2009 when the ratings were placed under review for possible
downgrade.

Founded in 1997 in China and listed in Hong Kong in April 2007,
Country Garden Holdings Company Limited is one of the leading
integrated property developers in China.

ROAD KING: Moody's Changes Outlook on 'Ba3' Rating to Stable
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has changed the outlook to stable from
negative for Road King Infrastructure's Ba3 corporate family and
senior unsecured debt ratings.

"The change in outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Road King
has generated higher-than-expected contracted sales from its
property projects, thereby improving its balance sheet liquidity
and indicating an improvement in its execution ability in property
development," says Peter Choy, a Moody's Vice President & Senior
Credit Officer.

"In addition, Road King has satisfactory resolved the problem in
its Tianjin projects, and which signifies the takeover of Sunco is
now fully completed," says Choy.

"While Road King sold its interest in the Jihe expressway in 2009,
the remaining toll road cash flow remain sufficient to cover its
interest payments," says Choy.

The stable outlook further incorporates Moody's expectation that
Road King will continue to exercise prudence in growth and
financial discipline in property development and toll road
acquisitions, such that its debt leverage will maintain at 45%-
50%, positioning it in the low Ba range.

Upward pressure on ratings in the near term appears less likely,
given Road King's modest credit metrics and its relatively small
scale of development when compared with other Ba rated property
peers.

On the other hand, downward pressure could emerge if Road King (a)
suffers a further decline in its balance sheet liquidity; (b)
fails to meet its business plan; (c) continues to suffer losses in
its property development portfolio; (d) undertakes aggressive
debt-funded acquisitions, and/or (e) the performance of its toll
roads deteriorates.

In terms of credit metrics, Moody's would consider as signals for
a possible downgrade: (i) EBITDA/interest below 2.5-3.0x; and (ii)
debt to total capitalization above 55-60%.  Furthermore, if cash
flow from its toll roads fails to cover interest expenses by 1x,
then the ratings would also experience downward pressure.

The last rating action on Road King was taken on 17 April 2009
when its rating outlook was changed to negative from stable.

Established in 1994, Road King is a Hong Kong-listed company with
investments in toll roads and property development projects in
China.

ZENESIS SPC: S&P Raises Rating on Series 2006-1 Notes to 'BB+'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its rating on Series
2006-1 US$11.274 million, portfolio credit-linked notes (CDO-
squared) issued by Zenesis SPC.  At the same time, the rating was
removed from CreditWatch with positive implications, where it was
placed on March 10, 2010.

S&P reviewed the credit quality of the securitized assets using
the synthetic rated overcollateralization scores and results from
S&P's supplemental tests: the largest obligor and largest industry
tests.  These results measure the degree by which the credit
enhancement of a tranche exceeds the stressed loss rate assumed
for a given rating scenario.

The rating on Zenesis SPC Series 2006-1 was raised as its SROC
score is greater than 100% at the current rating level and at a
higher rating level (based on the maximum scenario loss rate,
largest obligor test, and largest industry test).  SROC scores
rising above 100% reflect an improvement in the credit quality of
the underlying portfolio.

ALLIANCE PETROLEUMS: CRISIL Rates INR220MM Cash Credit at 'B'
-------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its rating of 'B/Stable' to the cash credit
facility of Alliance Petroleums Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                              Ratings
   ----------                              -------
   INR220 Million Cash Credit Facility     B/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects APPL's weak financial risk profile and high
working capital requirements driven by long receivable cycle. The
impact of these weaknesses is mitigated by the benefits that APPL
derives from its position as a leading consignment agent for Essar
Oil Ltd (Essar Oil) in North India.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that APPL will maintain a stable operating margin
and benefit from scaled-up operations over the medium term. The
outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if APPL's capital structure
improves significantly, led by sustained improvement in
profitability.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' if APPL's financial risk profile deteriorates
materially because of large debt or working capital requirements.

                     About Alliance Petroleums

Alliance Petroleums Pvt Ltd, currently headed by Mr. Sameer Anand,
is a consignment agent for Essar Oil and Haldia Petro Chemicals
Ltd, and deals in industrial petrochemicals such as furnace oil
(FO) and carbon black feed stock oil (CBFS).  The company has been
a consignment agent for Essar Oil's FO since May 2008. APPL
reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR3.5 million on net sales
of INR1213.8 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of INR3.2 million on net
sales of INR353.0 million for 2007-08.


BHAGAWATI COOLS: CRISIL Assigns 'BB-' Ratings on Various Debts
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB-/Stable' rating to the bank facilities
of Bhagawati Cools Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR44.0 Million Cash Credit            BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR30.0 Million Warehouse Financing    BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR14.6 Million Rupee Term Loan        BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR3.3 Million Overdraft Facility      BB-/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects Bhagawati's average financial risk profile
marked by weak debt protection measures, and fluctuations in
revenue stream due to high linkage to agriculture performance and
in turn to monsoon.  The rating also reflects low return on
capital employed from Bhagwati's other businesses, viz. financing,
warehousing and trading of potatoes and grains.  These rating
weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that Bhagawati
derives from its dominant market position and promoters'
experience in the tractor distribution business, and moderate
debtor and inventory risk management.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Bhagawati will continue to benefit over the
medium term from its market position, and distribution rights for
Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) tractors, in Gwalior and Bhopal (Madhya
Pradesh) and Agra (Uttar Pradesh).  The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' if Bhagawati improves its financial risk profile by
strengthening its debt protection measures led by improved
profitability.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' if Bhagawati's capital structure is adversely affected
by large debt-funded capital expenditure or if its debt servicing
ability is constrained by a large decline in revenues as a result
of poor agricultural performance in the region.

                        About Bhagawati Cools

Incorporated in 1999 by Mr. Vikram Singh, Bhagawati is an
authorised distributor of M&M tractors in Gwalior, Bhopal, and
Agra.  The company also has cold storage and warehousing
facilities for grains; it also trades in potatoes and grains, and
undertakes the branding of grains.

Bhagawati reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR1.71 million on
net sales of INR151.30 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial
year, April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR0.98 million on
net sales of INR93.71 million for 2007-08.


BIOTECH INT'L: CRISIL Puts 'BB+' Rating on INR92.5M Term Loan
-------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB+/Positive/P4+' ratings to the bank
facilities of Biotech International Ltd.

   Facilities                              Ratings
   ----------                              -------
   INR70 Million Cash Credit Facility*     BB+/Positive (Assigned)
   INR92.5 Million Term Loan               BB+/Positive (Assigned)
   INR6.0 Mil. Bill Discounting Facility   P4+ (Assigned)
   INR59.5 Million Letter of Credit        P4+ (Assigned)
   INR30 Million Bank Guarantee            P4+ (Assigned)

   * Up to INR5 million interchangeable with packing credit.

The ratings reflect BIL's large working capital requirements,
exposure to implementation and demand risks associated with the
long-lasting-insecticidal mosquito bed nets (LLIN) unit, small
scale of operations, and exposure to risks inherent in the
agrochemical market in India.  These rating weaknesses are
partially offset by BIL's promoters' experience in the bio-
chemicals industry, and by the diversity in the company's product
profile, which helps control revenue concentration.

Outlook: Positive

CRISIL believes that BIL will sign a sales agreement with Clarke
Mosquito Control Products Inc (Clarke) for the LLIN project; the
venture into LLIN is expected to help BIL post significant
increase in revenues and profitability over the medium term.  The
ratings may be upgraded if BIL commission the LLIN unit on
schedule leading to increase in cash accruals and profitability.
The outlook maybe revised to 'Stable' in case of delay in
commissioning of the LLIN project, or if BIL posts less cash than
expected or contracts more debt than expected.

                      About Biotech International

Biotech International was incorporated in 1993 by Mr. Vivek
Singhal and his sons Mr. Ravi Singhal and Mr. Sourabh Singhal. The
company is in the business of manufacturing of bio-chemicals for

owes around INR750 crore to lenders such as ICICI Bank Ltd., State
Bank of India, Barclays Bank Plc and Axis Bank Ltd., among others.

According to livemint.com, managing director Ranjit Chougule, in a
July 2009 letter to the employees, had admitted to defaults of
payments to lenders and employees.  The report relates the company
had come under financial pressure after it raised multiple loans
from banks and other institutions to finance two strategic
overseas acquisitions in 2008.

Indage had been granted a stay of 15 days following a submission
by the company that it had plans to meet all its obligations,
livemint.com says.

KADVANI FORGE: CRISIL Assigns 'B+' Rating on INR90MM Term Loan
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B+/Stable' rating to Kadvani Forge Ltd's
bank facilities.

   Facilities                              Ratings
   ----------                              -------
   INR200.0 Million Cash Credit Facility   B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR90.0 Million Term Loan               B+/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects KFL's moderate financial risk profile, marked
by high gearing and average debt protection measures, and exposure
to risks relating to industry and customer concentration in its
revenue profile.  These rating weaknesses are partially offset by
KFL's track record in the forging industry, and the benefits that
the company derives from its strong customer base.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that KFL's cash accruals will improve and that KFL
will benefit from its established and reputed customer base and
the absence of large planned capital expenditure, over the medium
term. The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if KFL's financial
risk profile improves, supported by improvement in operating
margins and effective working capital management. Conversely, the
outlook may be revised to 'Negative' in case the company faces
significant delays in recovery of dues from customers or if its
operating margin reduces, leading to deterioration in financial
risk profile.

                        About Kadvani Forge

Incorporated in 1995, Kadvani Forge Ltd commenced commercial
operations in 1997.  It was initially promoted by the Kadvani
family and was then acquired by Mr. Vitthalbhai L Dhaduk in
February 2009.  KFL manufactures forged components at its facility
in Rajkot (Gujarat) and derives a majority of its revenues from
automobile component manufacturers.  The company increased its
production capacity to 30,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) in 2009 from
960 tpa in 1997.

KFL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR2 million on net sales
of INR561 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1
to March 31) against a PAT of INR11.1 million on net sales of
INR587 million for 2007-08.


KARNANI SOLVEX: CRISIL Assigns 'BB' Rating on INR87MM Term Loan
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB/Stable' rating to the bank facilities
of Karnani Solvex Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                            Ratings
   ----------                            -------
   INR60.0 Million Cash Credit Limit     BB/Stable (Assigned)
   INR87.0 Million Term Loan             BB/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects the low value addition in KSPL's business, and
the company's exposure to competition from well-established
players.  The rating is also constrained by the limited crushing
of mustard seeds, leading to lower availability of mustard cakes
for oil extraction.  These weaknesses are partially offset by
KSPL's adequate financial flexibility.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that KSPL will continue to benefit from the
healthy demand prospects for the edible oil industry.  The outlook
may be revised to 'Positive' in case KSPL generates more-than-
expected growth in its operating income and profitability.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' in case of
lower-than-expected profitability and cash accruals, and/or if the
company undertakes any large, debt-funded capital expenditure
program.

Karnani Solvex Pvt Ltd was promoted by Mr. Sanjay Karnani and
Mr. Narayan Karnani in 2007.  The company has set up a solvent
extraction unit in Bassi, Jaipur (Rajasthan), with a production
capacity of 450 tonnes per day, commissioned in September 2009;
the total project cost was INR126 million, funded through bank
borrowings of INR87 million. KSPL undertakes manufacture of
mustard oil (expected to contribute around 30% to the operating
income) and de-oiled mustard cakes (70%).


KRITIKA WIRES: CRISIL Places 'BB' Rating on INR80MM Term Loan
-------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB/Stable' rating to the bank facilities
of Kritika Wires Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR120 Million Cash Credit*      BB/Stable (Assigned)
   INR80 Million Term Loan@         BB/Stable (Assigned)

   *Includes proposed limit of INR90 million
   @Proposed

The rating reflects KWPL's constrained profitability because of
intense competition in the wires market, small net worth, and weak
debt protection metrics; the financial risk profile is expected to
weaken further because of the company's planned debt-funded
capital expenditure (capex).  The rating also factor in KWPL's
increasing working capital requirements.  These rating weaknesses
are partially offset by the benefits that KWPL derives from its
moderate operating efficiency.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that KWPL will maintain its business risk profile
over the medium term on the back of capacity additions and
moderate operating efficiency.  The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' if KWPL's revenues increase, and profitability improves
considerably.  Conversely, the outlook could be revised to
'Negative' if the company's capacity utilization is below
expectation, or if it undertakes additional large debt-funded
capex program.

                        About Kritika Wires

Set up in Kolkata in 2004 by Mr. Naresh Agarwal and Mr. Sanjeev
Binani, Kritika Wires Pvt Ltd. is in the business of wire drawing
(mild steel and electrode quality wires) from wire rods.  The
company's manufacturing unit in Howrah has capacity of 7200 tonnes
per annum (tpa).  KWPL is setting up a new wire-drawing unit -
electro?galvanized wires, pre-stressed concrete wires, and
aluminium-conductor steel-reinforced core wires.  The proposed
plant will have capacity of 22,800 tpa.  The total estimated
capital outlay on the project is INR201 million, to be funded in a
debt-to-equity mix of 1.87:1; the debt includes unsecured loans
from promoters.

KWPL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR0.6 million on
operating income of INR198 million for 2008-09 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR0.6
million on operating income of INR172 million for 2007-08.


KULKARNI POWER: Stretched Liquidity Cues CRISIL 'BB-' Ratings
-------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB-/Stable/P4' ratings to Kulkarni Power
Tools Ltd's bank facilities.

   Facilities                           Ratings
   ----------                           -------
   INR228.0 Million Term Loan           BB-/Stable (Assigned)

   INR39.7 Million Letter of Credit     P4 (Assigned)
                   Facility

   INR7.5 Million Bank Guarantee        P4 (Assigned)
                        Facility

The ratings reflect KPTL's high gearing, stretched liquidity
because of large working capital requirements, and exposure to
competition in the electric power tools industry.  These rating
weaknesses are partially offset by KPTL's strong market position,
and by its promoters' experience in the industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that KPTL will maintain its market position over
the medium term on the back of its long-standing relationships
with customers.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if KPTL
improves its working capital management and capital structure, and
significantly increases its operating margin.  Conversely, the
outlook may be revised to 'Negative' in case of pressure on the
company's operating margin, or deterioration in its financial risk
profile.

                        About Kulkarni Power

KPTL was incorporated in 1976 as Kulkarni Black & Decker Ltd
(KBDL), a joint venture between the Kulkarni group and Black &
Decker, USA.  The company commenced commercial production in 1978.
The collaboration was terminated in 1993 as per mutually agreed
terms, and the name of the company was changed to the present one.
KPTL manufactures electric power tools for a variety of
applications in construction, automobiles, railways, shipyards,
bus-body building, fabrication work, housing, and general
manufacturing.  KPTL has a manufacturing unit, with an installed
production capacity of 250,000 tools per annum, in Shirol in
Maharashtra. In 2009, KPTL undertook an expansion project with a
capital expenditure of INR125 million. The new capacity is likely
to become operational in the first quarter of 2010-11 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31).

KPTL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR27.2 million on net
sales of INR614 million for 2008-09, against a PAT of INR33.9
million on net sales of INR580 million for 2007-08. For the nine
months ended December 31, 2009, KPTL reported a PAT of INR34.5
million (INR22.8 million for the corresponding period of 2008-09)
on net sales of INR465 million (INR482 million).


MIMANI AGRO: CRISIL Assigns 'B+' Rating on INR61MM Term Loan
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B+/Negative/P4' to the bank
facilities of Mimani Agro Products Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                           Ratings
   ----------                           -------
   INR30.0 Million Cash Credit Limit    B+/Negative (Assigned)
   INR61.0 Million Term Loan            B+/Negative (Assigned)
   INR1.0 Million Bank Guarantee        P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect MAPPL's weak financial risk profile, limited
financial flexibility, and exposure to risks relating to small
scale of operations in the intensely competitive agricultural
commodities industry.  The impact of the weaknesses is mitigated
by the benefits that MAPPL derives from its promoters' experience
in the agricultural commodities industry.

For arriving at its ratings, CRISIL has combined the financial
risk profiles of MAPPL and MAPPL's associate company, Ganesh
Spices Pvt Ltd (Ganesh Spices).  This is because the two companies
(collectively referred to as the Mimani group) have common
promoters and management, and because Ganesh Spices procures its
entire raw material requirements from MAPPL.  Moreover, both the
companies have a common banker and fungible cash flows.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL believes that the Mimani group's financial risk profile
will remain weak over the medium term because of delays in
implementation of MAPPL's capital expenditure program, losses in
Ganesh Spices in the initial years of operations, and Ganesh
Spices's dependence on promoters and MAPPL to meet its term debt
obligations.  The outlook may be revised to 'Stable' if the group
complete its project on time, stabilizes its operations, and
reports higher revenues and cash accruals from the existing
operations.  Conversely, the ratings may be downgraded if the
company faces time or cost overruns in project implementation.

                         About Mimani Agro

Incorporated in 1999, Mimani Agro Products Pvt Ltd manufactures
agricultural products such as besan, sattu, and dal. Its flour
mill at Jodhpur (Rajasthan) has the capacity to produce 4800
tonnes per day (tpd) and 2400 tpd of besan and sattu,
respectively.  The company markets its products under the Ganesh
brand in East India, Rajasthan, New Delhi, and Uttar Pradesh.  The
products are sold mainly in packages of 25 kilo gram (kg) to 100
kg, to wholesalers and institutional buyers.

MAPPL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR1.7 million on net
sales of INR224.2 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of INR2.2 million on net
sales of INR243.3 million for 2007-08.


P & S JEWELLERY: CRISIL Puts 'P4+' Rating on Packing Credit
-----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'P4+' rating to the bank facilities of
P & S Jewellery Ltd, which is part of the P & S group.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR450.0 Million Packing Credit*       P4+ (Assigned)
   INR150.0 Million Letter of Credit      P4+ (Assigned)

  * Fully interchangeable with Post Shipment Credit

The rating reflects the P & S group's subdued financial risk
profile and exposure to risks relating to intense competition in
the jewellery industry.  These rating weaknesses are partially
offset by the benefits that the group derives from its promoters'
experience in the jewellery industry, and its established
relationships with customers.

For arriving at its rating, CRISIL has combined the business and
financial risk profiles of PSJL and P & S Shringar Pvt Ltd, as the
two entities, together referred to as the P & S group, are under a
common management and in the same line of business, and funds are
fungible between them.

                        About the Group

The P & S group, set up in 1992 by Mr. Chhabildas Shah and
Mr. Paresh Shah, manufactures diamond-studded gold jewellery.  The
group's entities, PSJL and PSSPL, cater primarily to the export
and domestic markets, respectively.

PSJL, established in 1992, has its export-oriented unit at Surat.

PSJL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR11.6 million on net
sales of INR1539.2 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of INR11.4 million on net
sales of INR762.7 million for 2007-08.


P & S SHRINGAR: CRISIL Puts 'BB' Rating on INR142.5M Cash Credit
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB/Stable/P4+' ratings to the bank
facilities of P & S Shringar Pvt Ltd, which is part of the P & S
group.

   ----------                          -------
   INR142.5 Million Cash Credit        BB/Stable (Assigned)
   INR100.0 Million Letter of Credit   P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect the P & S group's subdued financial risk
profile and exposure to risks relating to intense competition in
the jewellery industry.  These rating weaknesses are partially
offset by the benefits that the group derives from its promoters'
experience in the jewellery industry, and its established
relationships with customers.

financial risk profiles of PSSPL and P & S Jewellery Ltd, as the
two entities, together referred to as the P & S group, are under a
common management and in the same line of business, and funds are
fungible between them.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that the P & S group will continue to benefit from
its promoters' experience in the jewellery industry, and its
established relations with customers.  The outlook may be revised
to 'Positive' if the group demonstrates significant volume and
revenue growth while maintaining its operating margin and debt
protection metrics.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' if the group's debt protection metrics deteriorate
sharply.

                          About the Group

The P & S group, set up in 1992 by Mr. Chhabildas Shah and
Mr. Paresh Shah, manufactures diamond-studded gold jewellery.  The

PHOENIX FOILS: CRISIL Assigns 'B+' Rating on INR19.6M Term Loan
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B+/Stable/P4' to the bank
facilities of Phoenix Foils Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                          Ratings
   ----------                          -------
   INR75.0 Million Cash Credit         B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR19.6 Million Term Loan           B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR90.0 Million Letter of Credit    P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect PFPL's weak financial risk profile marked by
high gearing and weak debt protection measures, and small scale of
operations in a fragmented steel products industry.  This rating
weakness is partially offset by the benefits PFPL derives from its
promoter's extensive experience in the steel products industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Phoenix Foils Pvt Ltd's financial risk
profile will remain constrained on account of its weak capital
structure.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the
company displays sustained growth in its revenues along with
stable profitability and large capital infusion by the promoters.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if PFPL
undertakes larger-than-expected, debt-funded capex.

                         About Phoenix Foils

Incorporated in 2005 by Mr. Mukesh Bhandari and his son, Mr. Kapil
Bhandari, PFPL manufactures thin-gauge stainless-steel, cold-
rolled coils and foils.  The company's plant in Umbergaon
(Gujarat) has capacity to manufacture 5000 tonnes of coils and
foils per annum.

PFPL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR3.7 million on net
sales of INR392.4 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR3.7 million on net sales
of INR463.9 million for 2007-08.


PSR SILK: CRISIL Rates INR141.70 Million Long Term Loan at 'B'
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B/Stable' rating to the term loan
facility of PSR Silk Sarees India Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                            Ratings
   ----------                            -------
   INR141.70 Million Long Term Loan      B/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects PSR's exposure to project risk, and intense
competition in the textile retail industry.  These rating
weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that PSR derives
from its promoter group's established market position, brand
appeal, and experience in the garment retailing.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that PSR's showroom will be launched on schedule,
without cost overruns.  CRISIL also believes that the promoters
will infuse funds into the company to enable it meet its debt
obligations in a timely manner.  The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' if PSR generates more revenues than expected.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if the
company undertakes fresh, debt-funded capital expenditure program,
leading to deterioration in its financial risk profile, or if
there are further delays in the commencement of operations of the
showroom.

                           About PSR Silk

Incorporated in 2007, PSR Silk Sarees India Pvt Ltd is setting up
a textiles retail showroom, spread over 21,000 square feet, in
Coimbatore.  The cost of this project is estimated at INR340
million; the project has been funded through a term loan of INR258
million and the remainder through promoters' contribution.  The
construction of the showroom is expected to be completed by July
2010; the showroom will be inaugurated soon after.  PSR is part of
the PSR group, which belongs to Mr. P S Rangaswamy and his family.

garments.


ROXY ROLLER: CRISIL Lifts Rating on INR5.6 Mil. LT Loan to 'BB-'
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has upgraded its ratings on the bank facilities of Roxy
Roller Flour Mills (P) Ltd to 'BB-/Stable/P4+' from
'B+/Stable/P4'.

   Facilities                        Ratings
   ----------                        -------
   INR100 Million Cash Credit        BB-/Stable (Upgraded from
                                                  'B+/Stable')

   INR5.6 Million Long-Term Loan     BB-/Stable (Upgraded from
                                                  'B+/Stable')

   INR10 Million Line of Credit      P4+ (Upgraded from 'P4')


The upgrade follows improvement in RRFM's financial risk profile
because of equity infusion of INR20 million into the company by
its promoters during 2009-10 (refers to financial year, April 1 to
March 31) and pre-payment of interest-bearing unsecured loans.

The upgrade also factors in the expected robust growth in RRFM's
operating income on the back of significant capacity additions in
its Bengaluru unit.

The ratings reflect RRFM's below-average financial risk profile
and limited pricing power because of the fragmented nature of the
wheat flour products industry.  These weaknesses are partially
offset by the benefits that RRFM derives from its established
position in the flour business.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that RRFM will maintain its business risk profile
on the back of its established position in the flour business and
strong relationships with customers.  The outlook may be revised
to 'Positive' if RRFM increases its operating margin, while
maintaining its capital structure, thereby strengthening its debt
protection metrics.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' if the company undertakes a large debt-funded capital
expenditure program, leading to deterioration in its gearing.

                        About Roxy Roller

RRFM, acquired by Mr. Sivaram Bansal in 1980, is engaged in the
business of converting wheat into flour products. It is a closely
held company, with a wheat processing capacity of 120,000 tonnes
per annum; the company's plants are located in Hyderabad and
Bengaluru.

For 2008-09, RRFM reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR 7.2
million on net sales of INR1.2 billion, against a PAT of INR 7.8
million on net sales of INR1.05 billion for 2007-08.


SARDA ECO: CRISIL Assigns 'P4+' Rating on INR115MM Bank Debts
-------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'P4+' rating to the bank facilities of
Sarda Eco Power Ltd.

   Facilities                            Ratings
   ----------                            -------
   INR115 Million Bank Guarantee         P4+ (Assigned)
   INR143.5 Million Letter of Credit     P4+ (Assigned)

The rating reflects SEPL's constrained business risk profile
because of revenue concentration on a single project, small scale
of operations and limited net worth.  These rating weaknesses are
partially offset by the benefits that SEPL derives from its
competent management team and promoters' industry experience.

SEPL was set up in 2007 by Mr. Ashok Jajodia, who has more than 50
years of experience through various organizations, including
Sarada Plywood Industries Ltd (SPIL), Dunlop India, and Assam &
Co. SEPL formed a consortium with SPIL, M/S Superec India, and M/S
Holland & Co, and won the contract from Assam Power Generation

power project on Myntrian river in Assam. Phase I of the project
involves construction of two units of 3 MW each and the Phase II
involves construction of two units of 1.5 MW each.

(refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31).


SUNIL KUMAR: Delay in Loan Payment Cues CRISIL 'C' Ratings
----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'C/P4' ratings to the bank facilities of
Sunil Kumar Agarwal.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             ------
   INR20 Million Cash Credit              C (Assigned)
   INR10 Million Standby Line of Credit   P4 (Assigned)
   INR150 Million Bank Guarantee          P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect SKA's working-capital-intensive operations,
leading to stretched liquidity, and delay in repayment of debt
obligations, and exposure to risks related to revenue
concentration and small scale of operations.  These rating
weaknesses are partially offset by SKA's comfortable revenue
visibility, resulting from its moderate order book and promoters'
experience in the civil construction segment.

Set up as a proprietorship concern in 1990 and reconstituted as a
partnership concern in 2003, SKA undertakes road construction
activities mainly in Chhattisgarh.  The firm, registered with the
Public Works Department (PWD) in Chhattisgarh, has executed
projects for PWD, Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana, and others in
the state.

SKA reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR12.7 million on net
sales of INR447.6 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR8.2 million on net sales
of INR533.8 million for 2007-08.


SWATANTRA LAND: CRISIL Rates INR250 Million Term Loan at 'B-'

CRISIL has assigned its 'B-/Negative' rating to the term loan
facility of Swatantra Land & Finance Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                    Ratings
   ----------                    -------
   INR250 Million Term Loan      B-/Negative (Assigned)

The rating reflects SLF's exposure to risks relating to the
current slowdown in the real estate business, and those inherent
in the Indian real estate industry.  The rating also reflects
SLF's weak financial risk profile marked by a small net worth, a
highly leveraged capital structure, and weak debt protection
metrics. These rating weaknesses are partially offset by the
benefits that SLF derives from its promoters' experience of over
four decades in the real estate development industry.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL's negative outlook reflects Swatantara Land Finance Private
Ltd's (SLF) stretched liquidity position.  The rating may be
downgraded in case of worsening working capital and liquidity
position and/or higher than expected debt funded capital
expenditure plans leading to further strain on the company's
financial risk profile.  Conversely, the outlook can be revised to
stable in case of demonstrated improvement in the liquidity
position of the company while maintaining the group's
profitability and achieving expected growth rate in operating
income over the medium term.

                        About Swatantra Land

Incorporated in 1995 by Mr. V K Madan and Mr. Ajay Madan,
Swatantra Land & Finance Pvt Ltd. is a real estate development
company which is engaged in the construction of various projects,
including residential and commercial townships, shopping malls,
hotels, and information technology (IT) parks. SLF has constructed
Youth Hostel Chanakyapuri and Arunachal Bhawan in New Delhi, and

and the World-Bank-funded Women Polytechnic at Sector-08,
Faridabad, and apartments for Delhi Development Authority at
Sarita Vihar, Mayapuri, Hari Nagar, Bhodella, and Munirka in New
Delhi.

SLF reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR13 million on net
sales of INR132 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,

TATA STEEL: Likely to Start Work on Orissa Plant in April
---------------------------------------------------------
The Press Trust of India reports that Tata Steel Ltd. said Tuesday
work on its INR21,000-crore Kalinganagar project in Orissa is
likely start next month.  The report says the project is already
delayed by four years due to stiff resistance from locals over the
issues of displacement and rehabilitation.

According to the report, the steel maker has been planning to
build a six-million tonne per annum steel plant at the
Kalinganagar Industrial Complex in Jajpur district of the East
Cost state since 2004.

"We have received 80% of the required land from the state and the
balance will be received soon.  We will start construction work
next month," Tata Steel corporate affairs and communications head

have already shifted around 807 out of the 1,195 families and are
in talks with the locals to rehabilitate the remaining families."

TIRUPUR TEXTILES: Weak Liquidity Prompts CRISIL Junk Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has downgraded its ratings on Tirupur Textiles Pvt Ltd's
bank facilities to 'D/P5' from 'C/P4'.

   Facilities                            Ratings
   ----------                            -------
   INR575.0 Million Long-Term Loan       D (Downgraded from 'C')
   INR25.7 Million Proposed Long-Term    D (Downgraded from 'C')
                   Bank Loan Facility
   INR100.0 Million Cash Credit Limits   D (Downgraded from 'C')
   INR20.0 Mil. Foreign Bill Purchase/   P5 (Downgraded from 'P4')
           Foreign Usance Bill Limits
   INR201.0 Million Letter of Credit     P5 (Downgraded from 'P4')
                              Limits
   INR2.5 Million Bank Guarantee Limits  P5 (Downgraded from 'P4')

The downgrade reflects the fact that TTPL's working capital limits
remain over-utilized for over three months, since December 2009.
The over utilization has been caused by TTPL's weak liquidity
because of increase in its working capital requirements following
the commencement of the cotton season.

Incorporated in 1956 by Mr. G T Krishnaswamy Naidu and his son K
Sivasubramaniam, TTPL manufactures hosiery cotton yarn. It has
three manufacturing units, in Coimbatore and Tirupur, and having a
combined installed capacity of 59,376 spindles. TTPL also has 10
windmills, all in Tamil Nadu, translating into a total capacity of
12.5 megawatts.

For 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), TTPL
reported a net loss of INR35 million on net sales of INR550
million, against INR17 million and INR652 million, respectively
for 2007-08.


TRV GLOBAL: CRISIL Assigns 'P4' Rating on Various Bank Debts
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'P4' rating to TRV Global Exports Pvt
Ltd's bank facilities.

   Facilities                               Ratings
   ----------                               -------
   INR80.00 Million Export Packing Credit   P4 (Assigned)
   INR10.00 Million Bill Discounting        P4 (Assigned)

The rating reflects TRV's below-average financial risk profile,
the susceptibility of its margins to fluctuations in the value of
the Indian rupee, intense competition in the granite exports
market and customer concentration in revenue profile.  These
rating weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that TRV
derives from its promoters' experience in the granite exports
business.

Set up as a partnership firm in 1999 by Mr. N Shivakumar, TRV
exports granite blocks and slabs. Based at Chennai, TRV was
reconstituted as a private limited company in 2007.  The company
exports granite to China, Taiwan, and Italy.

TRV reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR1.3 million on net
sales of INR109.5 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31) against a PAT of INR1.5 million on net sales
of INR47.2 million for 2007-08.


VENKATESH LOGISTICS: CRISIL Lifts Ratings on Various Debts to 'BB'
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has upgraded its ratings on the bank facilities of
Venkatesh Logistics Pvt Ltd to 'BB/Stable/P4+' from 'BB-
/Stable/P4'.

   Facilities                           Ratings
   ----------                           -------
   INR280.0 Million Cash Credit*        BB/Stable (Upgraded from
                                                   'BB-/Stable')

   INR50.0 Million Term loan            BB/Stable (Upgraded from
                                                   'BB-/Stable')

   INR20.0 Million Letter of Credit     P4+ (Upgraded from 'P4')

   * Includes proposed facility of INR18.5 million.

The upgrade reflects the improvement, albeit marginal, in VLPL's
liquidity following the company's reduced reliance on debt to fund
its capital expenditure (capex) and increase in cash credit
limits.

The ratings reflect VLPL's large working capital needs, and
exposure to intense competition.  These rating weaknesses are
partially offset by VLPL's strong clientele, and healthy operating
margin.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that VLPL will maintain its business position on
the back of its long-standing relationships with clients. The
company will also benefit from the expected growth in the road
transportation services industry.  The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' if VLPL improves its working capital management,
thereby strengthening its liquidity, or there is a substantial and
sustained increase in the company's revenues and profitability.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if VLPL's
capex is larger than expected, thereby adversely affecting its
capital structure, or if there is a decline in its liquidity.

                     About Venkatesh Logistics

Venkatesh Logistics Pvt Ltd, set up in 2004 by Mr. Suresh Chandra
Khemka, provides transport logistics services, primarily in the
full-truck load segment.  VLPL's clientele includes Essar
Logistics, Reliance, Tata Steel (AA\FAA+\Stable), Larsen & Toubro
(AAA\FAAA\Stable\P1+), and IndoRama Synthetics. In 2008-09 (refers
to financial year, April 1 to March 31), Wayzata Indian Ocean, a
private investment fund, acquired a 51 per cent stake in VLPL.

VLPL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR1.8 million on net
sales of INR1.1 billion for 2008-09, against a PAT of INR30.9
million on net sales of INR702 million for 2007-08.


ZIRCON EXPORTS: CRISIL Assigns 'B+' Ratings on Various Bank Debts
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B+/Stable/P4' ratings to Zircon Exports
Pvt Ltd's bank facilities.

   Facilities                           Ratings
   ----------                           -------
   INR22.0 Million Cash Credit          B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR26.0 Million Rupee Term Loan      B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR200.0 Million Letter of Credit    P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect Zircon's weak financial risk profile marked by
small net worth and weak debt protection metrics, high level of
inventory, and susceptibility to fluctuations in the value of the
Indian rupee. These rating weaknesses are partially offset by
Zircon's established customer relationships.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Zircon will sustain its credit risk profile
over the medium term backed by sustained revenue growth driven by
its established customer relationships.  The outlook may be
revised to 'Positive' if Zircon's financial risk profile improves
substantially led by equity infusion or improvement in the
company's working capital management.  Conversely, the outlook may
be revised to 'Negative' if the company's debt protection metrics
weaken, most likely because of large, debt-funded capital
expenditure, or if the company's profitability declines
materially, most likely because of the raw material price
volatility.

                           About Zircon

Zircon, owned and managed by Mr. Sanjeev Jajodia and family since
2000, is into timber processing and trading activities.  Zircon
sells its products to real estate builders and to construction
companies. Around 80 per cent of company's revenues are generated
from timber trade and the remainder comes from off-site timber
processing.

Zircon reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR4 million on net
sales of INR322 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), against a net loss of INR1 million on net
sales of INR304 million for 2007-08.


ZUBERI FIBRES: CRISIL Rates INR400.0 Million Term Loan at 'B+'
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B+/Stable' rating to Zuberi Fibres Pvt
Ltd's term loan facility.

   Facilities                     Ratings
   ----------                     -------
   INR400.0 Million Term Loan     B+/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects ZFPL's exposure to offtake-related risks,
large working capital requirements (after commissioning its kraft
paper manufacturing plant), and vulnerability to volatility in
paper and raw material prices.  These rating weaknesses are
partially offset by expected improvement in ZFPL's operating
efficiency post commissioning of the plant, and the benefits that
the company derives from its promoters' experience in the paper
industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that ZFPL will commission its plant on schedule
and commence commercial production in June 2010, and that the
company will establish its market position, given its promoters'
experience in the paper industry.  The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' in case ZFPL generates more-than-expected sales and
profitability, leading to improved debt protection metrics.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if the
offtake from the company's new plant is below expectation, leading
to low cash accruals, or if its profitability takes a hit because
of adverse price movements for industrial paper and wastepaper.

                        About Zuberi Fibres

Zuberi Fibres Pvt Ltd was set up in May 2003 to manufacture and
trade in industrial paper and board.  The company is setting up a
facility for producing duplex and multi-layered kraft paper, with
capacity of 150 tonnes per day, in Aligarh (Uttar Pradesh). The
unit will also be equipped with a 3-megawatt power generation
plant based on rice-husk combustion, which meets most of ZFPL's
power requirements.

The total capital outlay on the project is expected to be around
INR640 million. Of this, INR400 million has already been tied up
from State Bank of Bikaner & Jaipur and Bank of India.  The
remaining amount is to be funded through equity infusion by the
promoters.

BERLIAN LAJU: Fitch Affirms Issuer Default Ratings at 'B'
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has removed Indonesia-based PT Berlian Laju Tanker
Tbk's ratings from Rating Watch Negative and affirmed its Long-
term foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings at 'B'.
The Outlook on the IDRs is Negative.  Fitch has also affirmed the
'CCC' rating on BLT's US$400 million senior unsecured notes due
2014, which were issued by BLT Finance B.V. and guaranteed by BLT
- this is based on a recovery rating of 'RR6'.

The removal of the RWN status follows BLT's announcement on 19
March 2010 that it has withdrawn from the voluntary offer to
acquire Camillo Eitzen & Co ASA, an Oslo-based financially
distressed shipping company.  BLT's ratings were placed on RWN in
October 2009 following the announcement of the proposed
acquisition (see Fitch's announcement titled, "Fitch Places
Berlian Laju Tanker on Watch Negative Following Planned
Acquisition of Camillo Eitzen", dated October 5, 2009).  Despite
the additional equity BLT planned to raise on the back of this
transaction, Fitch viewed that the acquisition could further
weaken BLT's already weak financial profile.

BLT may still raise equity via a rights issue, despite its
withdrawal of the acquisition offer; however, it is possible that
BLT may resume acquisition discussions with shareholders of CECO
after the completion of the rights issue.  In such a case, Fitch
will review the new structure and take appropriate rating action.

BLT's IDRs and Negative Outlook reflect the company's high
financial leverage and its challenging liquidity position amidst a
weak shipping market.  That said, BLT raised US$100 million via a
convertible bond (which is being upsized to US$125 million)
issuance in February 2010, and it was able to make some headway in
securing funding for its committed capex in 2010 (of around
US$130m).  Furthermore, BLT had US$280 million in cash reserves as
at September 2009, lending support to its liquidity.  "BLT's near-
term liquidity position has improved, but its liquidity position
will remain challenged for at least two more years," says Buddhika
Piyasena, Director of Fitch's Asia-Pacific Corporates Ratings
team.  This is due to BLT's unfunded committed capex of nearly
US$300m in 2011 and its limited headroom over the minimum loan-to-
value covenants.  At the same time, BLT has been engaged in
opportunistic capex to grow its domestic operations, which could
lead to further debt and reduced cash balances.

Fitch expects pressure on chemical tanker rates to ease in 2010
and BLT's revenues and earnings to gradually stabilize over the
coming year.  However, given the high indebtedness of BLT, its
interest coverage and financial leverage will remain weak.  In the
nine months ended September 2009, BLT's fund flow from operations
to interest coverage stood at 2.5x and leverage measured by
adjusted debt net of cash to operating EBITDAR stood at 7.3x.

A significant deterioration in liquidity due to BLT's failure to
secure adequate funding for its committed capex, and/or a
withdrawal of credit facilities/acceleration of debt repayments
due to breach of financial covenants, may lead to a downgrade.
Stabilization of the ratings is not expected until BLT's liquidity
position and its overall financial profile show improvements,
which the agency believes is unlikely before end-2011.


GAJAH TUNGGAL: Moody's Upgrades Corporate Family Rating to 'B3'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded to B3 from Caa1 the
corporate family rating for PT Gajah Tunggal Tbk (GT) and its
senior secured rating for the US$435 million bonds issued by GT
2005 Bonds BV, and guaranteed by GT.  The outlook for the ratings
is stable.

"The rating upgrade captures GT's better-than-expect operating
performance and credit metrics, as the company enjoys the
beneficial effects of a resilient domestic economy in Indonesia
and lower raw material prices," says Wonnie Chu, a Moody's
Analyst.

GT reported very strong consolidated credit metrics for FY2009,
including Debt/EBITDA of below 3x and RCF/net debt of over 30%,
and which both exceeded Moody's expectations.  Although its credit
metrics will likely moderate in FY2010 -- on the back of
increasing raw material prices -- projected Debt/EBITDA of around
5x in the next 1-2 years remains strong for the B3 rating level.

"In addition, the improved performance has translated into strong
balance sheet liquidity for the company," says Chu.

However, the B3 rating also reflects Moody's concerns over GT's
exposure to volatile raw material prices and foreign exchange
fluctuations.  Moreover, the rating is constrained by the
company's history of debt restructuring and weak back-up liquidity
arrangements.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that GT can manage
its capital expenditures with its balance sheet cash and operating
cash flow in the absence of any material debt repayments in the
next 12 months.

The rating could face upward pressure if GT can demonstrate an
ability to generate sustainable cash flow generation through the
cycle and, at the same time, if there is an improvement in debt
leverage, such that adjusted debt/EBITDA falls below 4.0 -- 5.0x
on a sustained basis.

On the other hand, GT's ratings could experience downward pressure
if its credit profile weakens, such that there is little buffer
for its interest payments and debt obligations, or Debt/EBITDA
exceeds 7.0 -- 8.0x over the cycle.

Such developments could be due to: 1) an industry downturn beyond
Moody's expectations; 2) the inability of the company to pass on
further increases in raw material costs, 3) unforeseen increases
in product liabilities; or 4) an aggressive dividend payout
policy, which returns funds to shareholders after the interest
step-up date.

The last rating action was taken on Jul 27, 2009, when the
company's corporate family and senior unsecured bond ratings were
upgraded to Caa1.

PT Gajah Tunggal Tbk is Southeast Asia's largest integrated tire
manufacturer.  Its key products include tires for motorcycles,
passenger cars and commercial and heavy equipment vehicles.  Giti
Tire, a Chinese tire manufacturer, is a 44.83% shareholder in GT
through its subsidiary, Denham Pte Ltd.


PERUSAHAAN LISTRIK: Plans to Issue IDR3 Tril. in Bonds in June
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Jakarta Globe reports that PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara plans
to issue IDR3 trillion (US$330 million) worth of bonds in June to
help finance its capital expenditure this year.

million in loans from the Asian Development Bank and Agence
Francaise de Developpement, a France-based donor institution, to
help finance the Java-Bali distribution-grid project.

The Globe says the ADB loan has a 25-year term, including a five-
year grace period, with interest determined in accordance with its
LIBOR-based lending facility.  The Agence Francaise de
Developpement loan, meanwhile, has a 15-year term, including a
five-year grace period, with interest set in accordance with the
Euro Interbank Offered Rate.

                             About PLN

Indonesian state utility firm PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara --
http://www.pln.co.id/-- transmits and distributes electricity
to around 30 million customers, roughly 60% of Indonesia's
population.  The Indonesian Government decided to end PLN's
power supply monopoly to attract independents to build more
capacity for sale directly to consumers, as many areas of the
country are experiencing power shortages.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
September 18, 2009, Moody's Investors Service upgraded to Ba2 from
Ba3 the corporate family rating and senior unsecured bond rating
of PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara.  This rating action follows
Moody's decision to upgrade to Ba2 from Ba3 the Indonesian
government's long-term foreign-currency and local-currency
ratings.  The ratings outlook is stable, consistent with the
outlook on the government ratings.

CRAFAR FARMS: Natural Dairy Buys Crafar Assets
----------------------------------------------
The China Jin Hui Mining Corporation -- recently renamed Natural
Dairy (NZ) Holdings -- said it has agreed to buy the Crafar family
farms as well as other assets including farmland, cattle, and milk
powder production plant.

Natural Dairy said in a statement to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange
the deal will be paid for in cash and through the issue of
convertible bonds.

Crafar Farms, New Zealand's largest family owned dairy business,
runs about 20,000 milking cows, and carries about 10,000 of other
stock.  The company employs 200 staff.

Crafar Farms was placed in receivership by its lenders Westpac
Banking Corp., Rabobank Groep and PGG Wrightson Finance.  The
banks are owed around NZ$200 million and put KordaMentha partners
Michael Stiassny and Brendon Gibson in as receivers after Crafar
Farms breached covenants on its loans.

The New Zealand Herald said CraFarms' banks have been working with
the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Federated Farmers and
Fonterra to ease the Crafars out of their business.  This follows
multiple convictions for environmental lapses and animal neglect
in recent years and the revelation on September 28, 2009, from
interest.co.nz of animal neglect on one of its large farms in the
King Country near Benneydale.


NEW ZEALAND WINDFARMS: Sell Shares at Deep Discount; CEO to Leave
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The National Business Review reports that NZ Windfarms Limited is
losing its chief executive while carrying out a deeply discounted
capital raising to remain solvent.

The Review relates the company's chief executive Steve Cross has
advised that for personal reasons he does not wish to extend his
contract, which expires on June 30.

Bloomberg News reports that NZ Windfarms said Friday it will sell
shares at a 62% discount to help fund the expansion of its wind
farm on New Zealand's North Island.

According to Bloomberg, the company plans to raise NZ$31.4 million
offering shareholders eight new shares for every three held at a
price of 15 New Zealand cents apiece.  The sale is not
underwritten and a placement may be made to institutions and
shareholder Vector Ltd. to meet any shortfall, Bloomberg says.

The Review, citing an independent report from Northington
Partners, notes that NZ Windfarms would become insolvent without
additional capital.

"If for any reason the company cannot raise the capital to
complete the development, the consequences will be dire," the
report said.

According to the Review, the developer of the Te Rere Hau windfarm
in the Manawatu is 19.9% owned by Vector Ltd, which has provided
it with a NZ$6.5 million bridging loan.  A dispute with turbine
supplier Windflow Technology Ltd has delayed capital raising
plans.

The capital raising detailed on Friday must be approved by
shareholders at a special meeting on April 6, the Review notes.

RESPORT: Placed in Liquidation Over Unpaid Debts to Adidas NZ
-------------------------------------------------------------
Ben Heather at The Press reports that embattled Lane Walker Rudkin
boss Ken Anderson has lost control of another company, with
Resport placed in liquidation last week following a petition by
former partner Adidas New Zealand.

Resport was the parent company of sportswear chain Champions of
the World, which was sold in December to help pay Mr. Anderson's
creditors, including a supplier which subsequently withdrew its
liquidation order, according to the Press.

The Press relates Adidas country manager David Huggett said debt
to Adidas, owed for clothing supplied to the Champions of the
World chain, was never paid.

According to the report, Mr. Anderson has been under financial
pressure since his Christchurch clothing manufacturer Lane Walker
Rudkin Industries, and related companies, were placed into
receivership last April, owing Westpac Bank about $120 million.

LWR had a license to produce Adidas teamwear for local sporting
clubs and after it went into receivership Mr. Huggett was reported
as saying the two companies had a close relationship and Adidas
would continue to support LWR.

The Press notes that liquidator Shaun Adams, of KPMG, would not
disclose how much Resport owed Adidas, except that it was a
"seriously large amount of money".

* S&P Downgrades Ratings on Three Asia-Pacific Tranches to 'D'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its ratings on three
tranches of three Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan) collateralized
debt obligations to 'D' from 'CCC-'.

The rating downgrades to Corsair (Jersey) No.  2 Ltd. Series 89
and 91 reflect the realized interest losses incurred by the
investors.  The transaction portfolios had suffered several credit
events, resulting in aggregate losses that exceeded the available
subordination and reduced the principal amounts of the notes.
There have been interest payment shortfalls on the most recent
interest payment dates.

S&P has lowered the rating on Thunderbird Investments PLC Series
21 due to the interest and principal losses incurred by the
investor.  The transaction has been unwound, during which, several
credit events occurred in the portfolio and caused an aggregate
loss that exceeded the available subordination.  Consequently, the
funds available for the principal payment of the notes have been
reduced.

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.
