Auditor's Report (Electrosteel Steels) Year End : Mar '14
We have audited the accompanying financial statements of ELECTROSTEEL
 STEELS LIMITED (''the Company''), which comprises the Balance Sheet as at
 March 31, 2014, the Statement of Profit & Loss and the Cash Flow
 Statement for the year then ended (in which are incorporated the
 accounts of the representative office at China), and a summary of
 significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.
 
 2.  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 notified under the Companies Act, 1956 (''the
 Act'') read with the General Circular 15/2013 dated 13th September 2013
 of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs in respect of section 133 of the
 Companies Act, 2013. 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.
 
 3.  Auditor''s 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 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 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
 purposes 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 have relied upon the management''s representation relating to the
 disclosures in the financial statements regarding (a) segment reporting
 (Note 27); (b) related party disclosures (Note 28); (c) dues to Micro,
 Small & Medium Enterprises (Note 33) and (d) reconciliation and
 confirmation of balance of trade receivables, trade payables, loans and
 advances and other liabilities (Note 37).
 
 We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and
 appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.
 
 4.  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
 India:
 
 (a) in the case of the Balance Sheet, of the state of affairs of the
 Company as at March 31, 2014;
 
 (b) in the case of the Statement of Profit & Loss, of the loss for the
 year ended on that date; and
 
 (c) in the case of the Cash Flow Statement, of the cash flows for the
 year ended on that date.
