2. 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 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.

Auditor's Responsibility:

3. 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 and matters which are required to be included in the audit report under the provisions of the Act and the Rules made there under.

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 subject to matters stated in para 5 below we have obtained the audit evidence which is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the financial statements.

Emphasis on Matter:

4. We draw attention to the mater disclosed in the notes to the financial statement:

i) The Company has not been able to redeem 9% cumulative redeemable preference share capital. The unredeemed preference capital of Rs. 2,750 lacs have been shown under the schedule of Share Capital. (Refer disclosure under the Note 1 to the financial statement).

ii) Sundry debtors for the current year are shown at gross amount whereas in the preceding year were shown net of advance of Rs. 5,108.26. Therefore sundry debtors are not comparable to this extent.

Basis for Qualified Opinion

5. We report that:

i) We draw attention to note no. 37 in the financial statements. The Company has incurred a net loss of Rs. 3,688 lacs during the year ended 31st March, 2015, which together with brought forward losses of Rs. 21,885 lacs exceeds the net worth of the company, and as of that date, the company's current liabilities exceeded its current assets by Rs. 19,525 lacs and its total liabilities exceeded its total assets by Rs. 22,248 lacs. The Consortium banks have recalled their debts to the company. These events cast significant doubt on the ability of the company to continue as a going concern. The appropriateness of the going concern assumption is dependent on the company's ability to establish consistent profitable operations and generate positive cash flows as well as raising adequate finance to meet its short term and long term obligations. Based on the mitigating factors stated in the said note, the management of the company believes that the going concern assumption is appropriate. However, we do not agree with the management in this respect.

ii) The company has not arranged to make available the confirmations and/or reconciliations to verify the balances stated in the financial statements in respect of:

i .Trade Receivables Rs. 5,535.30 lacs

ii. Loans & Advances: Rs. 1,472.64 lacs

iii. Trade payables: Rs. 5,325.88 lacs,

iii) The management of the company has represented to us that the recoverable amount of assets within the meaning of Accounting Standard 28 "Impairment of Assets " is more than their carrying value and as such no amount needs to be recognized in the financial statements for impairment loss. In the absence of the workings of impairment having been prepared and made available to us for our review, we are unable to comment on whether; the company needs to make a provision in respect of impairment loss on such assets and the amount of such provision.

iv) Refer note no.36 of the financial statements, the company has not made provision in respect of balances recoverable from Trade Receivables, Loans and Advances and Other Recoverable including for employees, which are doubtful in nature amounting to Rs. 4,144.31 lacs as on the date of the financial Statements.

Report on the Financial Statements

1. We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Malwa Cotton Spinning Mills Limited, which comprise the Balance sheet as at March 31, 2013, and the Statement of profit and loss and Cash flow statement for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

Management''s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

2. 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 sub- section (3C) of section 211 of the Companies Act, 1956. This responsibility includes the design, implementation and maintenance of internal control 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

3. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing issued by The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. 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 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 control 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. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by 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. Emphasis on Matter

4. Without qualifying our opinion, we draw attention to note no. 39 in the financial statements. The Company has incurred a net loss of * 1R171 T! lacs during the year ended 31st March, 2013, which together with Drought forward losses of 1848.11 lacs exceeds the net worth of the company, and as of that date, the company''s current liabilities exceeded its current assets by RS. 6972.79 lacs and its total liabilities exceeded its total assets by X 13504.88 lacs. This condition indicates the existence of a material uncertainty that may cast doubt about the Company''s ability to continue as a going concern. Basis for Qualified Opinion

5. Further we report that:

i. Non confirmation of balances of trade receivables, trade payables, loans and advances and recoverables and its impact on loss, assets and liabilities is not ascertainable.

ii. Refer note no. 37 In absence of availability of net realizable value of slow moving items of inventories to the tune of RS. 236.14 lacs, these have been valued at cost instead of lower of cost and net realizable value. The impact of valuation on loss and current assets is not ascertainable.

Hi. Refer note no. 36 No provision has been made for doubtful trade receivables, advances and other recoverables aggregating to RS. 6,591.94 lacs. Had the impact of our observation been considered, then loss for the year would have been RS. 22,763.61 lacs (against the reported figure of RS. 16,171.67 lacs) and reserves and surplus would have been RS. (23,611.72) lacs (against the reported figure of 1(17,019.78) lacs and Current assets would have been RS.10,1''69.66 lacs (against the reported figures of 116,997.94 lacs.) Qualified Opinion
