Dear Equity Shareholder(s),

to convene and conduct a meeting of the Equity Shareholders on Wednesday, the 25th day of March, 2015,
at 4.00 P.M. at the Corporate Office: “Coromandel Towers”, 93, Santhome High Road, Karpagam Avenue,

(Applicant / First Transferor Company) and Trishul Concrete Products Limited (Second Transferor Company)
with The India Cements Limited (Transferee Company) and their respective Shareholders (the “Scheme”).
In addition to the Court Convened Meeting, the SEBI Circulars provide that, the Scheme shall be acted
upon only if the votes cast by the Public Shareholders of the Applicant Company (i.e. shareholders other
than Promoter and Promoters Group shareholders) in favour of the proposal are more than the number of
votes cast by its Public Shareholders against it through Postal Ballot and e-voting.
The Applicant Company accordingly seeks the consent of the public shareholders for the aforesaid proposal
as per draft resolution appended below, which is proposed to be passed by way of postal ballot and e-voting
as per SEBI circulars. The Explanatory Statement under Section 393 of the Companies Act, 1956 setting
out all material facts relating to the proposed Scheme is annexed (Refer page nos. 5 to 31).
It is clarified that votes may be cast by public shareholders by postal ballot / e-voting and also at the Court
Convened Meeting and casting of votes by postal ballot/e-voting does not disentitle them from attending
and casting their votes at the Court Convened Meeting vice-versa. It is further clarified that while votes may
be cast personally or by proxy at the Court Convened Meeting as provided in the notice of Court Convened
Meeting, exercise of votes through postal ballot is not permitted through a proxy.
The Applicant Company, in terms of Clause-24 (f) of the Listing Agreement and SEBI Circulars received
approval from BSE Limited (BSE) and Delhi Stock Exchange Limited (DSE) and Madhya Pradesh Stock
Exchange Limited (MPSE), vide their observation letters dated 26th September, 2014, 26th September,
2014 and 1st October, 2014 respectively. The copies of the said observation letters received from BSE,
DSE and MPSE are enclosed.

The shareholders are also requested to note that the proposed resolution set out in this notice may also be
voted upon through e-voting and the Company has entered into an agreement with National Securities
Depository Limited to provide the shareholders the platform to vote electronically (e-voting) instead of in the
physical mode. The shareholders desirous of exercising their vote electronically are requested to read the
instructions printed under the notes. The shareholders who wish to exercise their vote using postal ballot
form are requested to carefully go through the instructions printed overleaf of the enclosed postal ballot
form.

Form shall be treated as invalid.
