As explained to us, the fi xed assets have been physically verifi ed by the management as per a phased programme of verifi cation.

The discrepancies noticed on such verifi cation were not material and have been properly dealt with in the books of account.

The Company has not disposed off a substantial part of fi xed assets during the year.

2. The management has conducted physical verifi cation of inventories at reasonable intervals. In respect of stocks lying with the third parties, confi rmation for most of the stocks has been received.

The loan granted to one of wholly owned subsidiary is repayable on demand and to other wholly owned subsidiary is not due during the year for repayment; hence question of overdue principal amount doesn t arise.
