CIL’s business is manpower intensive and CIL dependent on the supply and availability of a sufficient pool of contract laborers from sub contractors at its project locations. Unavailability or shortage of such a pool of contract labor or any strikes, work stoppages, increased wage demands by workers or changes in regulations governing contractual labor may have an adverse impact on its cash flows and results of operations.

CIL may be subject to liability claims or claims for damages or termination of contracts with its clients for failure to meet project milestones or defective work, which may adversely impact its profitability, cash flows, results of operations and reputation.

CIL face certain risks relating to its reliance on sub contractors and third parties for supply of raw Materials, non Core Assets and for providing certain services in the construction of its projects that may adversely affect its reputation, business, and financial condition. Failure by its sub contractors and third parties to adhere to regulatory requirements may subject it’s to penalties.

CIL may incur penalties in respect of allotment of equity shares which are not in compliance with the provisions of the Companies Act.

Projects awarded from certain clients contribute a significant portion of its Order Book, and the loss of such clients could adversely affect its business, cash flows, results of operations and financial condition.

CIL is not able to realize the amounts reflected in its Order Book which may materially and adversely affect its business, prospects, reputation, profitability, financial condition and results of operation.

CIL projects and revenues are geographically concentrated in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (“MMR”), Chennai, National  Capital  Region  (“NCR”)  and  Bengaluru. Consequently, CIL is exposed to risks emanating from economic, regulatory and other changes in these locations which we may not be able to manage successfully and which in turn may have an adverse effect on its revenues, cash flows, profits and financial condition.

There is outstanding litigation involving its Company, its Directors, and its Promoters, which if determined adversely, could affect its business and results of operations.

CIL’s Promoters have extended personal guarantees in connection with certain of its debt facilities.There can be no assurance that such personal guarantees will be continued to be provided by its Promoters in the future.
