 (the Company), which comprise the Balance sheet as at 31st March,
 2014, and the statement of profit and Loss and Cash Flow statement for
 the year then ended, and a summary of signifcant 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 fair presentation of the financial statements

 Auditors'' Responsibility
 
 our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial

 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 auditor''s judgement, 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 suffcient and
 appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.
 
 Opinion
 
 In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the
 explanations given to us, 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
