We have audited the internal financial controls over financial reporting of GKB Ophthalmics Limited ("the Company") as of 31st March, 2016 in conjunction with our audit of the financial statements of the Company for the year ended on that date.

Management''s Responsibility for Internal Financial Controls

The Company''s Board of Directors is responsible for establishing and maintaining internal financial controls based on the internal control over financial reporting criteria established by the Company considering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting (the ''Guidance Note'') issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI). These responsibilities include the design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring the orderly and efficient conduct of its business, including adherence to Company''s policies, the safeguarding of its assets, the prevention and detection of frauds and errors, the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, and the timely preparation of reliable financial information, as required under the Companies Act, 2013 (the ''Act'').

Auditors'' Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company''s internal financial controls over financial reporting based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Guidance Note and the Standards on Auditing, issued by ICAI and deemed to be prescribed under Section 143(10) of the Act, to the extent applicable, to an audit of internal financial controls, both applicable to an audit of Internal Financial Controls and, both issued by the ICAI. Those Standards and the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether adequate internal financial controls over financial reporting was established and maintained and if such controls operated effectively in all material respects.

Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacy of the internal financial controls system over financial reporting and their operating effectiveness. Our audit of internal financial controls over financial reporting included obtaining an understanding of internal financial controls over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, and testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. 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.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the Company''s internal financial controls system over financial reporting.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting

A company''s internal financial control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company''s internal financial control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that: (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company''s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting

Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financial reporting, including the possibility of collusion or improper management override of controls, material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected. Also, projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls over financial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial control over financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Opinion

In our opinion, the Company has, in all material respects, an adequate internal financial controls system over financial reporting and such internal financial controls over financial reporting were operating effectively as at 31st March, 2016, based on the internal control over financial reporting criteria established by the Company considering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note issued by the ICAI.

We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

3. As required by the Companies (Auditor's Report) Order, 2003 as amended, issued by the Central Government Of India in terms of Section 227 (4A) of the Companies Act, 1956, and on the basis of checks of the books and records of the Company as we considered appropriate and the information and the explanations given to us during the course of audit. We enclose in the Annexure a statement on the matters specified in paragraphs 4 and 5 of the said order.

4. Further to our comments in the Annexure referred to above we report that:

(a) We have obtained all the information and explanations, which to the best of our knowledge and belief, were necessary for the purposes of the audit;

(b) In our opinion, proper books of account as required by law have been kept by the company so far as appears from our examination of these books;

(c) The Balance Sheet, Profit and Loss Account and the Cash Flow Statement dealt with by this report are in agreement with the books of account;

(d) In our opinion, the Balance Sheet and the Profit and Loss Account comply with the Accounting Standards referred to in sub-section (3C) of Section 211 of the Companies Act, 1956 except for what is stated in the ensuing paragraphs.

(e) On the basis of written representations received from the directors as on 31st March 2011, and taken on record by the Board of Directors, we report that none of the directors are disqualified as on 31st March 2011 from being appointed as a director in terms of Clause (g) of sub-section (1) of Section 274 of the Companies Act, 1956.

(f) The liquidity of the company has been badly affected during the year. This is evident from the cash flow statement according to which there is negative cash flow of Rs.12,79,247/- from its operating activities as against positive cash flow of Rs.30,30,661/- disclosed in the accounts for the previous year. In our opinion the above is mainly on account of blocking of funds of the Company in the debts due from various related parties which are disclosed in note no. 19 of the accounts. The amounts recoverable from these parties have shot up to Rs.12.48 crores from Rs.9.12 crores pertaining to previous year. On account of poor liquidity the company is not able to pay income/wealth tax arrears of Rs.3.56 crores.

(g) In accordance with the Accounting Policy No. l(d) disclosed in Schedule (M' of the accounts for the year on valuation of inventories, the stocks of finished goods are valued by the Company at lower of cost or net realizable value. The cost represents cost of raw materials, cost of conversion and production overheads. In respect of absorption of production overheads, in the absence of any explanation on discrepancies pointed out, we are unable to ascertain the correctness of the value of closing stocks of finished goods of Rs.5,68,86,610/- shown in the accounts of the year and also the effect of these discrepancies on the valuation and consequential effect on the profits of the Company for the year.

(h) The Company has not produced for our verification the fixed asset register as according to the Company the same has not yet been updated. In the absence of this register there is every possibility that the company has continued to charge the depreciation on certain fixed assets even when they have been fully depreciated. In these circumstances we are unable to ascertain the correctness of depreciation of Rs. 84,61,270/- charged and write back of depreciation of Rs. 35,82,445, included in Prior Period Adjustments, to Profit & Loss Account of the year and consequently also of the value affixed assets of Rs. 9,74,69,851/- appearing in the Balance Sheet of the Company.

(i) The Company in note no. 18 has stated that it assessed at the end of the year whether there is any indication that any asset may be impaired and that during this assessment it found that no asset has been impaired. We are not able to ascertain the correctness of the above statement and its consequential effect on profit as well as value of the Fixed Assets, since in our opinion it is very difficult to identify the impairment of any of the fixed assets as per the requirements of Accounting Standard (AS-28) on 'Impairment of Assets' issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India without proper maintenance of fixed assets register which gives the carrying amount of individual items of fixed assets for comparing them with their recoverable amounts.

(j) The Company has not accounted for dividend of Rs.44,23,000/- declared by GKB Ophthalmic Products (FZE) whose entire share capital is held by the Company. According to note no. 7 read with note no. 5, the Company has not accounted the above dividend since there is no subsidiary-holding relationship between the two companies as per UAE law. The Company has however not produced for our scrutiny any legal opinion which states that M/s GKB Ophthalmic Product (FZE) need not be considered as subsidiary of the company for the purpose of not accounting the above dividend in its accounts of the year. Consequently profit for the year in our opinion, has been understated to that extent

(k) The Company has stated in note no. 11 that very few parties have confirmed their balances in response to balance confirmation letters sent by the company to all its creditors and debtors. In the absence of proper confirmations we are not able to ascertain the accuracy of balances of debtors and creditors shown in the accounts of the year. Consequential effect thereon on the Accounts of the Company can not be ascertained.

(l) The Company has made provision of Rs.77,75,352/-for taxation in the accounts for the year. However as per the computation of income prepared by the Company based on the profits disclosed in the year, it has been noted that the Company should have provided taxes an amount of Rs.82,55,951/- in the accounts for the year. As a consequence, the provision for taxation for the year is understated to the extent of Rs. 4,80,599/- and profits for the year are overstated to that extent.

(m) In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, in view of the effects of the matters discussed in the preceding paragraphs (g) to (I), the Accounts do not give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India:

(i) in the case of the Balance Sheet, of the state of affairs of the Company as at 31st March 2011; and

(ii) in the case of the Profit and Loss Account, of the profit of the Company for the year ended on that date; and

(iii) in the case of the Cash Flow Statement, of the cash flows for the year ended on that date.
