Management's Responsibility for the Financial Statements:

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters 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.

Auditor's 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 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 the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the financial statements.

Basis for the qualified opinion:

1. We draw attention to Note No. 23.02 of the financial statements. The Company has incurred losses and its majority of funds are blocked in Non Performing Assets, raising a doubt about the Company to continue as a going concern. The Company has presented a scheme of arrangement for restructure of liabilities as detailed in Note No. 5.01 of the financial statements and subsequently withdrawn the same, for reasons given therein. The Company is exploring the possibility of presenting the new scheme of arrangement, as detailed in the aforesaid Notes. The account, however have been prepared on a "going concern basis" in view of management perception as detailed in Note No. 23.02 as aforesaid. However we are unable to comment on the ultimate realisability of Company's assets including the Fixed Assets under lease. Accordingly we are also unable to comment on the Company's ability to settle its debts/liabilities (including Deposits, subordinated debts and secured Redeemable Debentures.)

2. We draw the attention to Note 5.01 of the Financial Statements. The Company has stopped (i) repayment of matured debentures & matured subordinated debts and (ii) payment of interest on debentures and subordinated debts from 1st day of July 2002 and proposed a scheme of arrangement before the Hon'ble High Court of Karnataka, as referred to in the aforesaid Note (which is since withdrawn and we are informed that the Company is exploring the possibility presenting a new scheme of arrangement). Further the Company has also stopped repayment of deposits matured for repayment from the aforesaid date. All the debts of the Company i.e. debentures, subordinated debts and deposits are matured for repayment. The Company has provided for interest on deposits/debentures/debts upto 30th June, 2002 and not thereafter.

There are also many instances of settlement of debentures, debts and public deposits at the discounted rates with partial/full waiver of interest, which has been done with mutual consent. We are also informed that the remaining depositors/debenture

holders/debt holders have approached the Company for settlement of the dues and the Company is in the process for the same.

As per the information given to us various consumer courts (including the Appellate Authorities/Courts acting under the Consumer Protection Act) have passed the orders, for the repayment of certain deposits/debentures/debts with interest and other costs. The detailed information on these orders have not been made available to us. However we are informed that the Company has settled the dues of such customers in many cases, which also includes settlement at discounted rates with partial/full waiver of interest and many of the remaining such persons have approached the Company for settlement.

We draw the attention to the Statement made by the Management of the Company in Note No. 5.01 of the Financial Statement which is as follows: "Considering the facts that the Company has settled the dues of depositors/debenture holders/debt holders at the discounted rates as stated above, that the remaining customers have approached the Company for settlement of their dues, that the orders issued by the various consumer courts including the appellate authorities/courts therein, that the Company has settled the many of such consumer court cases, that the total debts of the Company have reduced considerably because of settlement as aforesaid and that the Company is exploring the possibility of framing the new scheme of arrangement, it is not feasible for the Company to ascertain accurately its liability on any given date".

Considering all the facts as given above, we qualify our opinion that it is not feasible for us to ascertain accurately the liability of the Company as on the date of the Balance Sheet.

Qualified Opinion:

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the effect of the matter described in the Basis of Qualified Opinion paragraph, the financial statements give the information required by the Act in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India:

(a) in the case of the Balance Sheet, of the state of affairs of the Company as at March 31,2015;

(b) in the case of the Statement of Profit and Loss, of the Profit for the year ended on that date;

and

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

Emphasis of Matter:

We draw the attention to Note 2.01 of the Financial Statements. The Company during the year with a view towards restructuring its liabilities has settled deposits/debentures/ subordinated debts at discounted rates. The same has been done with due consent of the parties to deposits, debentures and debts. The interest write back arising out of such settlement is considered as Extraordinary Income in the Statement of Profit and Loss. Principal write back arising out of such settlement is considered as capital receipt and taken directly to Capital Reserve (viz: Capital Reserve 2) in the Balance Sheet. This has been done as per the accounting policy followed by the Company, as stated in Note No. 23.01 (J). The Company had made similar settlements during the earlier years also, by giving the similar accounting treatment. Our opinion is not qualified on this matter.

Report on other Legal and Regulatory Requirements:

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

1. As required by the Companies (Auditors' Report) Order, 2003 issued by the Central Government in terms of Section 227(4A) of the Companies Act, 1956, we give in the annexure statement on the matters specified in Paragraphs 4 and 5 of the said order, to the extent applicable to the Company.

f) In terms of press release issued by Reserve Bank of India dated 27.06.2001, we state that:

i) The Certificate of Registration as issued by the Reserve Bank of India is not in force, since same was cancelled during December,2004.

ii) The Company has not obtained credit rating.

iii) The capital adequacy ratio is negative and accordingly the Companies; Loans, advances and investments are above the credit exposure limits.

iv) The Company has not filed the prudential returns and annual returns as per revised directives. However the Company has filed such returns as per the directives as prevailed till 31st March, 2011 i.e prudential returns on half yearly basis and annual return once a year.

v) The public deposits are matured for repayment, but remained unpaid by the Company. However the company has settled some of the deposits at discounted rates without interest. The Company has not provided/paid interest on deposits after 30th June, 2002.

vi) The Company has not created floating charge in favour of the depositors, on the statutory liquid assets invested.

vii) The Company has not strictly adhered RBI guidelines on closure of branches.

3. a) We draw attention to Note No.24.02 of the financial statements. The Company has incurred losses and its majority of funds are blocked in Non Performing Assets, raising a doubt about the Company to continue as a going concern. The Company has presented a scheme of arrangement for restructure of liabilities as detailed in Note No.5.01 of the financial statements and subsequently withdrawn the same, for reasons given therein. The Company is exploring the possibility of presenting the new scheme of arrangement, as detailed in the aforesaid Notes. The account, however have been prepared on a "going concern basis" in view of management perception as detailed in Note No.24.02 as aforesaid. However we are unable to comment on the ultimate reliability of Company's assets including the Fixed Assets under lease.

b) The Company has stopped (i) repayment of matured debentures & matured subordinated debts and (ii) payment of interest on debentures and subordinated debts from 1st day of July 2002, in view of the scheme of arrangement imposed before the Honble High Court of Karnataka, as referred to in Note No 5.01 of the financial statement (which is since withdrawn and we are informed that the Company is exploring the possibility presenting a new scheme of arrangement). Accordingly Interest on debentures/debts are provided up to 30th June, 2002 only and not thereafter. The Company has also not provided for the interest on public deposits from 1st July 2002. However all the public deposits are matured for repayment and remained unpaid as on the date of the Balance Sheet. No provision for interest on such debentures/debts/ deposits is being made during the year under audit. The effect on the loss is not ascertainable, since the Company has not quantified such interest. There are also instances of settlement of debentures, debts and public deposits as stated in note no. 2.01 of the financial statements. As per the information given to us various consumer courts (including the Appellate Authorities/Courts acting under the Consumer Protection Act) have passed the orders, for the repayment of certain deposits/debentures/debts with interest and other costs. The detailed information on these orders not made available to us and therefore we are unable to ascertain the ultimate effect on the profit/loss, on account of the aforesaid orders.

c) We draw the attention to note no. 24.10 of financial statement, wherein the management has explained the reason for earning the profit during the year under audit. The Company would have incurred loss, if the income as stated in the aforesaid note (i.e. exceptional/extra ordinary incomes and revenue earned on settlement with the borrowers ) were not earned.

4. Subject to the comments made in paragraph 2(e), 2(f) and paragraph 3 above, in our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the said financial statements together with the notes thereon and in particular note no 2.01 on write back of deposits/debenture/subordinated debts & treatment of principal write back as capital receipt, note no 5.02, on balances of deposits/interest lying in sundry creditors pending reconciliation, note no 5.03 & 3.01, on adequacy of security of debenture considering the provisions made & agreement to sell the property as detailed therein, note no. 6.01 regarding adjustment of revalued portion of lease hold land to revaluation reserve on termination of lease, note no. 21.01 on treating the provision reversal, bad debts written off & bad debts recovered as exceptional item, note No 24.07, on impairment of assets, Note No 4.01 on provision for leave encashment on estimated basis, rather than opting for actuarial valuation Note 19.01 disclosing lease equalization credit as reduction from depreciation,, give the information required under the Companies Act, 1956, in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India:-
