We have audited the accompanying standalone financial statements of GUJARAT LEASE FINANCING LIMITED ("the Company"), which comprise the Balance Sheet as at 31st March, 2015, the Statement of Profit and Loss and the Cash Flow Statement, and a summary of the significant accounting policies and other explanatory information for the year then ended.

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. 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 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.

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 andmatters which are required to be included in the audit report under the provisions of the Act and the Rules made thereunder.

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 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 control 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.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our qualified audit opinion on the standalone financial statements.

Basis for Qualified Opinion

Attention is invited to the Note 2.20 (c) regarding non-recognition of income of interest on tax refunds amounting to Rs.1,060.94 lacs (Previous year ended 31st March, 2014: Rs.1,033.66 lacs) and short provision of tax of Rs.277.21 lacs (Previous year ended 31st March, 2014: Rs.284.96 lacs).

Had the aforesaid amount on tax refund been accounted for in the books of account, the accumulated losses as at 31st March, 2015 would have been Rs.16,752.40lacs (Previous year ended 31st March, 2014: Rs. 16,780.33 lacs) as against reported figure of Rs.17,536.13 lacs (Previous year ended 31st March, 2014: Rs. 17,529.03 lacs), provision for taxation net of advance tax would have been converted to advance tax net of provision Rs.1.79 lacs (Previous year ended 31st March, 2014: Rs. 1.97 lacs) as against reported figure of Rs.781.94 lacs (Previous year ended 31st March, 2014: Rs. 746.73 lacs)

This matter was also qualified in our report on the financial statements for the year ended 31st March 2014.
