Auditor's Report (Jaiprakash Associates) Year End : Mar '13
Report on the Financial Statements
 
 We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Jaiprakash
 Associates Limited (the Company), which comprise the Balance Sheet
 as at March 31, 2013, and the Statement of Profit and Loss, and the
 Cash Flow Statement for the year then ended, and a summary of
 significant 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 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
 
 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. 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 sufficient and
 appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.
 
 Opinion
 
 Without qualifying our opinion, we draw attention to note 34(d) of the
 financial statements, relating to the order of the Competition
 Commission of India (CCI), concerning alleged contravention of the
 provisions of the Competition Act, 2002 and imposing a penalty of Rs.
 1,323.6 crores on the Company. The Company is advised by its counsels
 that it has a good case for the Competition Appellate Tribunal setting
 aside the order passed by CCI, and accordingly no provision has been
 considered necessary by the Company in this regard.
 
 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, 2013;
 
 b) in the case of the Statement of Profit and Loss, of the profit 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.
