Auditor's Report (Bank Of Baroda) Year End : Mar '14
1.  We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Bank of
 Baroda as on 31st March, 2014, which comprise the Balance Sheet as on
 31st March, 2014, and Profit and Loss Account and the Cash Flow
 Statement for the year then ended, and a summary of significant
 accounting policies and other explanatory information. Incorporated in
 these financial statements are the returns of 20 branches and one
 Specialized Integrated Treasury Branch audited by us, 2080 branches
 audited by branch auditors and 53 foreign branches audited by local
 auditors. The branches audited by us and those audited by other
 auditors have been selected by the Bank in accordance with the
 guidelines issued to the Bank by the Reserve Bank of India. Also
 incorporated in the Balance Sheet and the Profit and Loss Account are
 the returns from 2773 branches which have not been subjected to audit.
 These unaudited branches account for 5.72 per cent of advances, 12.00
 per cent of deposits, 5.07 per cent of interest income and 12.23 per
 cent of interest expenses.
 Management''s Responsibility for the Financial Statements
 2.  Management is responsible for the preparation of these financial
 statements in accordance with the Banking Regulation Act 1949, Reserve
 Bank of India guidelines from time to time and accounting standards
 generally accepted in India.  This responsibility includes the design,
 implementation and maintenance of internal control relevant to the
 preparation of the financial statements that 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 misstatements.
 4.  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
 entity''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
 effectiveness of the entity''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.
 5.  We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient
 and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.
 6.  Emphasis of Matter
 Without qualifying our opinion, we draw our attention to:
 a) Note No. B-2.3.3 of Schedule-18 to the financial statements, which
 describes deferment of pension liability of the Bank to the extent of
 Rs. 365.98 Crores as on 31st March, 2014 pursuant to the exemption
 granted by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to the public sector banks
 from application of the provisions of Accounting Standard 15 (Revised),
 Employee Benefits issued by Institute of Chartered Accountants of
 India, vide its circular no. DBOD. BP.BC/80/21.04.018/ 2010-11 dated
 February 9,2011, on Re-opening of Pension Option to Employees of Public
 Sector Banks.
 b) Note No. C-5.4 of Schedule-18 to the financial statements, which
 describes the accounting treatment of the amount of Deferred Tax
 Liability provided for on the claim of Special Reserve under section
 36(1)(viii) of the Income Tax Act, 1961 up to 31st March 2013, pursuant
 to RBI''s Circular No. DBOD. No. BP.BC.77/21.04.018/2013-14 dated 20th
 December 2013.
