buildings are not available since the assets acquired are added to the
block value of the assets.

by the management designed to cover all assets over a period of three

the Company and the nature of assets. The discrepancies noticed on such
verification were not material and have been properly dealt with in the
books of account.

third parties) has been physically verified by the management during

understand that there yvas no consignment stock lying with the third
party at the end of the year. In our opinion the frequency of
verification is reasonable.

management are reasonable and adequate in relation to the size of
company and nature of its business.

discrepancies noticed on verification between the physical stocks and
book records were not material and accordingly dealt in the books.
