Auditor Report of Nitin Fire Protection Industries Ltd.

Mar 31, 2014

We have audited the accompanying Financial Statements of Nitin Fire Protection Industries Limited ("the Company"), which comprise the Balance Sheet as at March 31, 2014, 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

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 ("the Act"). 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.

Auditors'' Responsibility

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 auditors'' 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, 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 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 qualified audit opinion.

Basis for Qualified Opinion

A) As more clarified in Note no. 34 to the notes to the financial statements, no provision has been made by the Company in respect of its dispute with a bank for a claim made by the bank for Rs. 50,133,481 on a derivative contract entered into by its erstwhile subsidiary (now an associate), the liability for which has been taken over by the Company. The Company has not determined the quantum of mark to market losses as of the Balance Sheet date on the above contract and have relied on a legal opinion in the matter wherein no liability is expected. Pending the final settlement of the matter, we are unable to quantify the extent of provision required, if any in this regard.

B) As more clarified in Note no. 41 to the notes to the financial statements, provision of Rs. 450,000 has been made for penalty towards compounding of offence petitions filed for the alleged non-compliance of several provisions of the Act before Ministry of Finance, Department of Company Affairs. Based on opinion obtained, the Company expects maximum penalty of Rs. 450,000 on disposal of its petitions. Pending disposal of petition, we are unable to quantify the extent of additional provision required, if any, in this regard.

Emphasis of Matter

We draw attention to:

As more clarified in Note no. 48 to the notes to the financial statements, relating to the Exposure in Worthington Nitin Cylinders Private Limited (WNCPL), aggregating Rs. 461,154,781 as at March 31, 2014 (Previous year Rs. 461,154,781), where the net worth of WNCPL has been substantially eroded. The Management has, barring any significant uncertainties in future, relied upon valuation of Fixed Assets and net Current Assets of WNCPL for the recoverability of the investment.

Qualified Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the effects of the matters described in the Basis for 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:
