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, including the Accounting Standards specified under Section 133 of the Act, read with Rule 7 of the Companies(Accounts) Rules, 2014 (as amended). This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions of the Act; safeguarding the assets of the Company; 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 financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor''s Responsibility

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

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and the 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 financial controls relevant to the Company''s 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 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.

5. 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 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 31 March 2015, and its profit and its cash flows for the year ended on that date.

Emphasis of Matters

We draw attention to the following notes:

(a) Note 28 of the financial statements regarding the scheme of arrangement for amalgamation (the Scheme) sanctioned by the Hon''ble Andhra Pradesh High Court by its order dated March 19, 2013. The Scheme permits the company to create a capital reserve to be called special reserve to which shall be credited excess of value of assets over value of liabilities on amalgamation amounting to Rs. 555.54 crores to be utilized to adjust therefrom any capital losses arising from transfer of assets and certain other losses as specified in the Scheme and as the Board of Directors may deem fit. Accordingly the irrecoverable advances to Gati ship Limited of Rs. 23.84 crores net of Rs. 30.22 Lacs realized on sale of 12.10 Lacs equity shares of Gati ship Limited has been adjusted to special reserve which is not in accordance with Accounting Standard (AS) 5 ''Net profit or loss for the period, prior period items and Changes in Accounting Policies'' and Accounting Standard (AS) 13 ''Accounting for Investments''. This has resulted in the profit for the period before tax and profit after tax for the period being higher by Rs. 23.84 crores.

(b) Note 30 of the financial statements regarding non provision against investment and other receivables from the subsidiary Zen Cargo Movers Pvt. Limited amounting to Rs.36.22 Lacs and Rs. 147.61 Lacs respectively as in the opinion of management no provision is necessary considering the expected improvement in performance of the subsidiary in near future.

(c) Note 31 of the financial statements regarding certain loans and advances to subsidiaries and an associate aggregating to Rs.23.66 crores in respect of which the management is confident of its full recovery.

(d) Note 32 of the financial statements regarding non provision for dues of Rs.12.15 crores from a body corporate as the management is confident of its full recovery.
