 4.  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
 Bank''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.
 5.  The financial information as at and for the year ended 31st March,
 2013 of 275 Branches and 6 Service Branches has been audited by other
 auditors whose reports have been furnished to us and our opinion is
 based solely on the reports of such other auditors.
