Management''s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

The Company''s management is responsible for the preparation of these 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 Standards referred to in Section 211(3C) of the Companies Act, 1956 ("the Act") and in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India.

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 auditors'' judgement, 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 controls relevant to the Company''s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company''s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of the accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by the management, 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 audit opinion.

3. As set out in Note 3 of Schedule 20(3) of the financial statements, the Company has since the inception of Accounting Standard 22 on Accounting for Taxes on Income, recognized the deferred tax expense, which arises primarily from depreciation on tangible fixed assets on the basis of the currently applicable enacted Minimum Alternate Tax rate rather than the regular tax rates as specified by paragraph 21 of Accounting Standard 22. The Company has challenged the provisions of Accounting Standard 22, insofar as it relates to the above matter and has accordingly filed a writ petition in June 2003 before the Andhra Pradesh High Court. The case has been subsequently transferred to Calcutta High Court. The writ petition has been admitted and is currently pending resolution. The quantification of the deferred tax liability, and consequential impact on the financial statement, which may arise due to the above, has been held in abeyance pending disposal of the writ petition.

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

i. in the case of the Balance Sheet of the state of affairs of the Company as at 31st March 2011;
