Management''s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

2. The Company''s Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in Section 134(5) of the Companies Act, 2013 (the Act) with respect to 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 principles generally accepted in India, including the Accounting Standards specified under Section 133 of the Act, read with Rule 7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014 (as amended). This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions of the Act; safeguarding the assets of the Company; preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls, that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, 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.

Auditor''s Responsibility

3. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

4. We have taken into account the provisions of the Act, the accounting and auditing standards and matters which are required to be included in the audit report under the provisions of the Act and the Rules made there under.

5. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing specified under Section 143(10) of the Act. 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.

6. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and the 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 financial controls relevant to the Company''s preparation of the financial statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of the accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by the Company''s Directors, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

7. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the financial statements.

8. Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the aforesaid 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, of the state of affairs of the Company as at 31 March 2016, and its loss and its cash flows for the year ended on that date.

Emphasis of Matters

9. Without qualifying our opinion, we draw attention to the following Notes to the financial statements:

9.1. Note No. 27, regarding the revenue recognized as Exceptional Item. The company, consequent to the delayed execution of contracts by certain vendors/suppliers/service providers of plant, equipments, civil and erection commissioning etc. has incurred Loss of Profit in past. The part of such claim of Loss of Profit as assessed by the Company has been recovered from the available balance in the respective Supplier''s Accounts and recognized as income in the Statement of Profit and Loss for the year. The unrecovered such Loss of Profit will be accounted for in the year significant certainty of recovery is established.

9.2 Note No. 41, regarding the preparation of these financial statements on a going concern basis. The Company incurred a net loss of Rs. 32,654.67 lacs during the year ended March 31, 2016 and, as of that date, the Company''s current liabilities exceeded its current assets by Rs 320,780.13 lacs, further the Company''s net worth has also been substantially eroded as at the balance sheet date. Since the full compliance of the sanctioned CDR package could not be made with, the lenders have invoked Strategic Debt Restructuring (SDR) pursuant to RBI circulars dated 08.06.2015 & 24.09.2015, the implementation is under progress. However, in view of the increase in the operations of the production facilities and the Company''s EBIDTA being positive also in this year, these financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis and no adjustment has been made to the carrying value of the assets and liabilities.

Our opinion is not modified in respect of these matters.
