We have audited the accompanying financial statements of C Mahendra Exports Limited ("the Company") which comprise the Balance Sheet as at March 31, 2015, the Statement of Profit and Loss and the Cash Flow Statement for the year ended on that date, and a summary of the significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

Management's Responsibility for the 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 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 the assets of the Company and for preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities, selection and application of the appropriate accounting policies, making judgements and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and design, implementation and maintenance of 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 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 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 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 financials control relevant to the Company's preparation of the financial statements and 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 the accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by the Company's 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 financial statements.

Basis for qualified opinion Basis for Disclaimer of Opinion

1. Reference is invited to note no. 1 regarding preparation of accounts on a Going Concern basis and the reasons stated therein, the Company's operating results have been materially affected due to various factors including non availability of finance in view of the consortium bankers recalling the financial facilities granted, symbolic possession of premises taken by the Bankers, Factory has ceased to carry on manufacturing activity. These events cast significant doubts on the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern since the volumes of business have also drastically dropped in the last 12 months. The appropriateness of the going concern assumption is dependent on the Company's ability to raise adequate finance from alternate means and/ or recoveries from overseas debtors to meet its short term and long term obligations as well as to establish consistent business operations. In absence of any convincing audit evidences, no positive steps taken by the management, non recovery of trade receivables on due dates, non payment of liabilities including Income Tax dues and in view of multiple uncertainties stated above, we are unable to determine the possible effects on the financial statements. We are also unable to conclude on the ability of the company to carry on as a going concern.

2. Reference is invited to note no.42 most banks have not provided balance confirmations, hence we also unable to confirm the bank balance (including working capital facility and overdraft) and interest payable thereon since the accounts are freezed by the consortium of banks and as a result facility has been ceased to be operational. and notice under section 13(2) of The Securitisation and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act,2002 is received by the Company.

No provision for interest is made amounting to Rs 915,371,518/- since all the bank accounts have become non performing assets (NPA)

3. Reference is invited to note no. 43 regarding Trade Receivables amounting to Rs. 11,949,340,981/-which are outstanding for more than 1 year from invoice date. As explained therein, the recoveries from these trade receivables have been almost negligible. There have been defaults on the payment obligations by the debtors on the due dates. As informed by the management no reply is received from any parties to whom legal notices were sent. No confirmations are obtained. In view of the above we are unable to comment on the realisability of the debts and any provision to be made for unrealisability in the carrying amounts of these balances and the consequential impact, on the financial statements.

4. In absence of audited / unaudited results of subsidiaries and step down subsidiaries, we were unable to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence about the carrying amount of Company's investment in various subsidiaries as at March 31, 2015. Consequently, we were unable to determine whether any adjustments to these amounts were necessary. The said investments continue to be valued at cost.

5. No valuation has been carried out by an independent valuer as done in earlier years accordingly, the determination of estimated net realizable value is made by management, hence we were unable to satisfy ourselves by alternative means concerning the inventory held at 31st March, 2015 which are stated in the Balance Sheet at Rs.163,01,90,777/-

6. The factory has ceased to carry on manufacturing activity since October, 2014. The Management has not carried out impairment of assets test as required by Accounting Standard (AS) 28 regarding Impairment of Assets. Hence we are unable to comment upon the impact in the financial statements.

Disclaimer of Opinion

Because of the significance of the matters described in the Basis for Disclaimer of Opinion paragraph specifically relating to the multiple uncertainties created above, we have not been able to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence to provide a basis for an audit opinion. Accordingly, we do not express an opinion on the aforesaid financial statements.

Emphasis of Matters

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

1. Reference is invited to note no.43 of the financial statements, the Company's advances to the extent of Rs. 11,706,797/- we are unable to ascertain whether such balances are fully recoverable. Accordingly, we are unable to ascertain the impact, if any, that may arise in case any of these advances are subsequently determined to be doubtful of recovery. Had the Company provided for the same, the loss for the period would have been higher by the said amount.

2. Reference is invited to note no. 47 to the Companies Act, 2013 ("the Act") coming in to effect from April 1, 2014, the Company has not realigned the remaining useful life of fixed assets in accordance with the provisions prescribed under Schedule II to the Act and has continued to provide depreciation as per old Companies Act, 1956 hence we are unable to comment upon the impact in the financial statements.

3. Reference is invited to note no.48 the management has confirmed that no financial adjustment is required to be made in the financial statements on account of various allegations, amongst promoters and defamation notice received by the Managing Director of the company.

4. Reference is invited to note no.50 regarding absence of any intimation received from vendors regarding the status of their registration under "Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Act, 2006", the company is unable to comply with the disclosures required to be made under the said Act.
