Management's Responsibility for the Standalone Financial Statements

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in Section 134(5) of the Companies Act, 2013 ("the Act") with respect to the preparation of these standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position, financial performance and cash flows of the Company in accordance with the Accounting Principles Generally Accepted in India (Indian GAAPs), including Accounting Standards specified under Section 133 of the Act, read with Rule 7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014. This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding the assets of the Company and for preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls, that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, relevant to the preparation and presentation of the standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditors' Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these standalone financial statements based on our audit.

We have taken into account the provisions of the Act, the accounting and auditing standards and matters which are required to be included in the audit report under the provisions of the Act and the Rules made thereunder.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing specified under Section 143(10) of the Act. Those Standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalone financial statements are free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the standalone financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor's judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the standalone financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Company's preparation of the standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on whether the Company has in place an adequate internal financial control system over financial reporting and the operating effectiveness of such controls. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by the management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the standalone financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the standalone financial statements.

Basis for Qualified Opinion

We refer to Note.16 to the standalone financial statements wherein the Management of the Company has considered Trade Receivables outstanding for more than 6 months amounting to Rs.99,270,767 as good and fully recoverable. In the absence of balance confirmations / reconciliations from the customers from whom these amounts are due or other alternate audit evidence to corroborate management's assessment of recoverability of these balances and having regard to the age of these balances, we are unable to comment the extent to which these balances are recoverable.

Qualified Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the possible effects of the matter described in the basis for qualified opinion paragraph above, the aforesaid standalone financial statements give the information required by the Act in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, of the state of affairs of the Company as at 31st March, 2015 and its profit and its cash flows for the year ended on that date.

Emphasis of Matter

We draw attention to the Note No. 9.01 to the standalone financial statements, according to which the Company doesn't have information in respect of creditors regarding their status under the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Act, 2006 and hence it has not separately disclosed the amount payable to Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises.

Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.

Other Matters

The standalone financial statements and other financial information include the Company's proportionate share in jointly controlled total assets of Rs. 135,289,512 , total revenue of Rs. 2,342,826 , total expenditure of Rs. 1,462,788 and the elements making up the Cash Flow Statement and related disclosures in respect of an Unincorporated Joint Ventures which is based on audited financial statements of the respective Joint Ventures audited by one of the Joint Auditor's and furnish to us.

Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.
