Report on the Internal Financial controls under Clause (i) of Sub -
section 3 of Section 143 of the Companies Act, 2013 ("the Act") We have
audited the internal financial controls over financial reporting of
Sutlej Textiles and Industries Limited as of March 31, 2016 in
conjunction with our audit of the financial statements of the Company
for the year ended on that date.

Management''s Responsibility for Internal Financial Controls The
Company''s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining
internal financial controls based on the internal control over the
financial reporting criteria established by the company considering the
essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note on
Audit of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting issued by
the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. These responsibilities
include the design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal
financial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring the
orderly and efficient conduct of its business, including adherence to
company''s policies, the safeguarding of its assets, the prevention and
detection of frauds and errors, the accuracy and completeness of the
accounting records, and the timely preparation of reliable financial
information, as required under the Companies Act, 2013.

Auditor''s Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the company''s internal
financial controls over financial reporting based on our audit. We
conducted our audit in accordance with the Guidance Note on Audit of
Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting (the "guidance
Note") and the standards on Auditing, issued by ICAI and deemed to be
prescribed under section 143(10) of the companies Act, 2013, to the
extent applicable to an audit of internal financial controls, both
applicable to an audit of Internal Financial Controls and, both issued
by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Those standards
and the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethical requirements
of and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about
whether adequate internal financial controls over financial reporting
was established and maintained and if such controls operated
effectively in all material respects.

Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about
the adequacy of the internal financial controls system over financial
reporting and their operating effectiveness. Our audit of internal
financial controls over financial reporting included obtaining an
understanding of internal financial controls over financial reporting,
assessing the risk that a material weakness exist, and testing and
evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control
based on the assessed risk. 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.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and
appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the Company''s
internal financial controls system over financial reporting.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting A
Company''s internal financial control over financial reporting is a
process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the
reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial
statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted
accounting principles. A company''s internal financial control over
financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1)
pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail,
accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the
assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that
transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of
financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being
made only in accordance with authorization of management and directors
of the company ; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding
prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or
disposition of the company''s assets that could have a material effect
on the financial statements.


Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls over Financial
Reporting

Because of the inherent limitations of Internal Financial Controls Over
Financial Reporting, including the possibility of collusion or improper
management override of controls, material misstatements due to error or
fraud may occur and not be detected. Also, projections of any
evaluation of the internal financial controls over financial reporting
to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial
controls over financial reporting may become inadequate because of
changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the
policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Opinion

In our opinion, the Company has, in all material respects, an adequate
internal financial controls system over financial reporting and such
internal financial controls over financial reporting were operating
effectively as at March 31, 2016, based on the internal control over
the financial reporting criteria established by the company considering
the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance
Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India.
