Report on the financial statements

We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Satra Properties (India) Limited ("the Company") which comprise the balance sheet as at 31 March 2013, the statement of profit and loss and the 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 includes 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. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of 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

As more fully explained in Note 39 to the financial statements, construction work-in-progress of a project included construction cost of Rs. 157,974,510 arising out of a significant change in the structural plan of the project in the year ended 31 March 2009. In accordance with the provisions of Accounting Standard – 2, "Inventories", such construction costs should have been charged to the statement of profit and loss for the year ended 31 March 2009. During the year ended 31 March 2013, the Company has recognized revenue from this project as a result of which the cost of construction recognized in the statement of profit and loss includes Rs. 21,907,491 of construction cost incorrectly capitalised in an earlier year, resulting in an understatement of profit after tax for the year ended 31 March 2013 by Rs. 14,440,658. Consequently, the construction work-in-progress and the surplus in the statement of profit and loss continue to be overstated by Rs. 58,531,369 as at 31 March 2013.

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 matter described in the Basis for Qualified Opinion paragraph above, 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:

(i) in the case of the balance sheet, of the state of affairs of the Company as at 31 March 2013;

(ii) in the case of statement of profit and loss, of the profit of the Company for the year ended on that date; and

(iii) in the case of cash flow statement, of the cash flows of the Company for the year ended on that date.

Emphasis of matter

Without qualifying our opinion, we draw attention to Note 42 to the financial statements. As more fully explained therein, as per Circular No. 4/2013 dated 11 February 2013 ("the Circular") issued by the Government of India, Ministry of Corporate Affairs, the Company has not separately deposited or invested an amount of at least Rs. 77,460,000 being 15% of the amount of its debentures maturing within 1 year in specified deposits or investments as per the Circular, as specified in note 42 to the financial statements. The ultimate outcome of any possible penal consequences on this matter cannot presently be determined and, accordingly, no provision that may result due to non-compliance with the requirements of the Circular has been made in the financial statements.

We have audited the attached balance sheet of Satra Properties (India) Limited ('the Company') as at 31 March 2012 and the statement of profit and loss and the cash flow statement for the year ended on that date, annexed thereto. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

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 the management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

We report as follows:

1. As required by the Companies (Auditor's Report) Order, 2003 ('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.

2. Further to our comments in the Annexure referred to above, we report that:

(a) we have obtained all the information and explanations, which to the best of our knowledge and belief, were necessary for the purposes of our audit;

(b) in our opinion, proper books of account as required by law have been kept by the Company so far as it appears from our examination of those books;

(c) the balance sheet, the statement of profit and loss and the cash flow statement dealt with by this report are in agreement with the books of account;

(d) in our opinion, except as stated in paragraphs (f) and (g) below, the balance sheet, the statement of profit and loss and the cash flow statement dealt with by this report comply with the Accounting Standards referred to in sub-section (3C) of Section 211 of the Act;

(e) on the basis of the written representations received from the directors of the Company as of 31 March 2012 and taken on record by the Board of Directors, we report that none of the directors is disqualified as on 31 March 2012 from being appointed as a director in terms of clause (g) of sub-section (1) of Section 274 of the Act;

(f) As more fully explained in Note 41 to the financial statements, construction work-in-progress of a project included construction cost of Rs. 157,974,510 arising out of a significant change in the structural plan of the project in the year ended 31 March 2009. In accordance with the provisions of Accounting Standard - 2, "Inventories", such construction costs should have been charged to the statement of profit and loss for the year ended 31 March 2009. During the year ended 31 March 2012, the Company has recognized revenue from this project as a result of which the cost of construction recognized in the statement of profit and loss includes Rs. 77,535,650for the year, resulting in an understatement of profit after tax for the year ended 31 March 2012 by Rs. 51,108,850. Consequently, the construction work-in-progress and the surplus in the statement of profit and loss continues to be overstated by Rs. 80,438,860 as at 31 March 2012;

(g) As more fully explained in Note 43 to the financial statements, in view of certain recent judicial pronouncements, the Company is required to pay Value Added Tax ('VAT') on sale of residential/commercial properties to the relevant authorities. The Company is currently in the process of ascertaining the exact applicability of these pronouncements, especially in respect of tax rate applicable, contractual ability to collect VAT from past and current customers and the mechanism of collection and payment of VAT to the government authorities. The Company is required to record the VAT collectable from customers and the VAT payable to the government authorities, and the VAT which is deemed to be not-collectable from its past and current customers needs to be charged to the statement ofprofit and loss. Pending quantification of the VAT collectable from customers, the VAT payable to the government authorities, and the VAT to be charged to the statement of profit and loss, we are unable to comment the impact of the same on the balance of trade receivables and other current liabilities as at 31 March 2012, on the rates and taxes and the profit for the year ended 31 March 2012 and the consequential impact on the balance in surplus in the statement of profit and loss as at 31 March 2012; and

(h) in our opinion, and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, subject to the effect of the matter included in the paragraph (f) above and impact of adjustments required, if any, in respect of the matter included in the paragraph (g) above, the said accounts 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:

i. in the case of the balance sheet, of the state of affairs of the Company as at 31 March 2012;

ii. in the case of the statement of profit and loss, of the profit of the Company for the year ended on that date; and

iii. in the case of the cash flow statement, of the cash flows of the Company for the year ended on that date.
