The only thing harder is to get good financial statements for companies that pass the screen.

I usually use SEBI's EDIFAR but some companies just don't publish annual reports there or even on their own sites. Moneycontrol has 5yr history only, that too condensed

Sometimes ET (economic times) has more info than SEBI which is just plain not right!
