Management' 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 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, including the 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 of 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 of the financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor's Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these 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 there under.

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 financial statements are free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor's judgement, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Company preparation of the 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 controls 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 Company Directors, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the 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.

Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the aforesaid standalone financial statements give the information required by the Companies Act, 2013, 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 30 September, 2015, and its profit and its cash flows for the period then ended on that date.

Emphasis of Matters

We draw attention to the following matters in the Notes to the financial statements:

(a) We draw attention to Note No.35 to the accompanying financial statements. As mentioned therein there are certain litigations by and against the Company and the subsidiaries of the Company that are yet to be decided by various courts and the matter is subjudice. No cognizance thereof is taken in the preparation of the financial statements, pending the final outcome of these cases.

Note 35- Certain litigations by and against the Company and the subsidiaries of the Company are pending in various courts and the matter is subjudice. No cognizance thereof is taken in the preparation of the financial statements, pending final outcome of the cases.

(b) As stated in note no. 37 in the financial statements, in an event of non-receipt of Open Access Permission from Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd., (MSEDCL) and consequent sale of power from April 2014 to March 2015 to MSEDCL, the profits of the Company for the accounting period ended on 31 March, 2015 would be lower by Rs. 40.5 Million (net of tax).

Note 37- The Company is required to apply for Open Access Permission to Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd., (MSEDCL) every financial year. Upon receipt of the Open Access Permission, the credit notes are issued by MSEDCL for power generated at the Company's Wind Farm at Satara which are subsequently adjusted in the power bill of the customer in Pune.

The Company has applied for Open Access Permission to MSEDCL for the financial year1 April, 2014 to 31 March, 2015 well in time. However, due to certain policy issues at MSEDCL, it has still not granted Open Access Permission to the Company for the said year and consequently credit notes for this period are awaited from MSEDCL. The Company had preferred an appeal with MERC against the decision of MSEDCL.

Pending issuance of these credit notes, the Company has recognized revenue from power generation during 1 April, 2014 to 31 March, 2015 at the average power tariff rate at Rs. 5.75 per unit generated.

In case of unfavourable decision by MERC and consequent sale of power to MSEDCL ,at Rs. 2.52 per unit generated, as per case no. 58 of 2008 issued by MSEDCL, the profits of the Company for that year would be lower by about Rs.40.5 Million net of tax.

However the Company has received Open Access Permission for 3 years from 1 April, 2015

Our opinion is not qualified in respect of the above matters

Those Standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor''s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Company''s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company''s internal control. 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 financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

The Company has applied for Open Access Permission to MSEDCL for the financial year 1st April 2014 to 31st March, 2015 well in time. However, due to certain policy issues at MSEDCL it has still not granted Open Access Permission to the Company for FY 2014-15.

Pending issuance of these credit notes and based on earlier years experience, the Company has recognized revenue from power generation during 1st April, 2014 to 30th September, 2014 at the average power tariff rate of the previous year.

In an unlikely event of non-receipt of the Open Access Permission and consequent sale of power to MSEDCL, as per case no. 58 of 2008 issued by MSEDCL, the profits of the Company for the accounting year ended 30th September, 2014 would be lower by about Rs. 34.69 Million (net of tax).
