We have audited the attached Balance Sheet of Info media Press Limited (formerly Info media 18 Limited) ('the Company') as at March 31, 2012 and also the Statement of Profit and Loss and the Cash Flow Statement for the year ended on that date annexed thereto ('financial statements'). These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Out responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

Those Standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

3. Without qualifying our opinion, we draw attention to Note 32 to the financial statements. As at March 31, 2012, the accumulated losses of the Company are Rs. 376,673,953 as against share capital and reserves of Rs. 523,033,524.

These factors indicate the existence of a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt on the Company's ability to continue as a going concern which is dependent on the Company continuing its business operations, establishing profitable operations and obtaining continuing financial and business support from its shareholders. These mitigating factors have been more fully disclosed in Note 32 to the financial statements in view of which the accompanying financial statements have been prepared on going concern assumption, and consequently, no adjustments have been made to the same in this regard.

4. The Company has received an Income tax demand of Rs 52,921,630 which has been disputed by the Company. As represented to us by management, the Company has filed an appeal before higher authorities and has also been legally advised that the possibility of the matter being decided against the Company and the demand crystallizing is not likely. The ultimate outcome of the matter cannot presently be determined, and no provision for any liability that may result has been made in the financial statements. In view of the foregoing, we are unable to comment on the matter and the consequential impact thereof, if any, on the accompanying financial statements. We had also modified our audit opinion of the previous year in respect of this matter.

5.

1. We have audited the attached Balance Sheet of Infomedia 18 Limited (the Company) as at March 31, 2010 and also the Profit and Loss Account and the Cash Flow Statement for the year ended on that date annexed thereto (financial statements). These financial statements are the responsibility of the Companys management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

2. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in India. Those Standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

3. As required by the Companies (Auditors Report) Order, 2003 (as amended) issued by the Central Government of India in terms of sub-section (4A) of Section 227 of the Companies Act, 1956, we enclose in the Annexure a statement on the matters specified in paragraphs 4 and 5 of the said Order.

4. Without qualifying our opinion, we draw attention to Note 25 of Schedule S to the accompanying financial statements.

This may raise substantial doubts regarding the Companys ability to continue as a going concern, which is dependent on establishing profitable operations and obtaining continuing financial support from its shareholders. These mitigating factors have been more fully disclosed in Note 25 of Schedule S to the accompanying financial statements, in view of which the accompanying financial statements have been prepared on going concern assumption, and consequently, no adjustments have been made to the accompanying financial statements in this regard.
