Auditor's Report

We have audited the attached Balance Sheet of Ansal Properties & Infrastructure Limited as at March 31, 2012 and also the Statement of Profit and Loss and the Cash Flow Statement of the Company for the year ended on that date, annexed thereto. These Financial Statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

We have conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in India. Those Standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by the management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

As required by the Companies (Auditors' Report) Order, 2003 as amended by the Companies (Auditors' Report) (Amendment) Order, 2004 (collectively the Order) issued by the Central Government of India in terms of Section 227 (4A) of the Companies Act, 1956 and on the basis of such checks as we considered appropriate and according to the information and explanations given to us, we enclose in the Annexure a statement on the matters specified in paragraphs 4 and 5 of the said Order.

Further to our comments in the Annexure referred to above, we report that:

a) We have obtained all the information and explanations which, to the best of our knowledge and belief, were necessary for the purpose of our audit;

b) In our opinion, proper books of account, as required by law, have been kept by the Company so far as appears from our examination of those books;

c) The Balance Sheet, Statement of Profit & Loss and Cash Flow Statement dealt with by this report are in agreement with the books of account;

d) In our opinion, the Balance Sheet, Statement of Profit & Loss and Cash Flow Statement, dealt with by this report, comply with the Accounting Standards referred to in sub - section (3C) of Section 211 of the Companies Act, 1956.

e) On the basis of written representations received from the directors as on March 31, 2012 and taken on record by the Board of Directors, we report that none of the directors is disqualified as on March 31, 2012 from being appointed as a director in terms of clause (g) of sub section (1) of section 274 of the Companies Act, 1956.

f) Without qualifying our opinion, we draw attention to:

i. Note No. 30 wherein the Company has claimed exemption of Rs. 3448 lacs in earlier years under section 80 lA of the Income Tax Act, 1961 being tax profits arising out of sale of Industrial Park units, pending the notification of the same by Central Board of Direct Taxes. Further the company has taken opinion from a senior counsel that its application satisfies all the conditions specified in the said Scheme of Industrial Park. We have relied on management contention. However, no exemption is claimed during the current year as there are no sales of industrial park units.

ii. Note No. 32(b) wherein the Company is carrying project inventory of Rs. 16833 lacs for one of its Group Housing projects. The company had applied to the Authority for developing the project on the basis of revised Scheme announced by the Authority for which approval has been received envisaging developing the project on a smaller piece of land equivalent to the amount paid and surrender balance project land subject to certain conditions. Pending final decision of the Authority in the matter, the management is of the view that there is no impairment in the value of land/ project and we have relied on management contention.

iii. Note No. 32(a) wherein the Company has given advances to land owning companies / collaborators I others for purchase / aggregation of land / for others to the tune of Rs.13707 lacs. This includes Rs. 10000 lacs as security deposits, the recoverability / adjustment of which is dependent upon the future events such as launch of project(s) for which steps have been or are being taken by the Company. As regards the balance amount of Rs.3707 lacs, pending details of land purchased and financial position of these parties, we understand from management that these advances are given in respect of on going transactions with collaborators / other parties and are regarded as being in the normal course of business. We have relied on management contention.

g) The Company has not considered for the estimated borrowing costs to be incurred in future in general for determining the project revenues, project inventory and debtors. According to the management the amount of these items cannot be determined at this stage, and therefore, we are unable to comment on the consequential impact thereof on the carrying value of project inventory, revenue recognition and outstanding debtors and other adjustments that may be necessitated on this account in the financial statements.

h) The Company had, during the year ended March 31, 2010, changed its accounting policy in respect of accounting for certain costs in the nature of administration and selling costs by charging them off to Profit & Loss against the earlier policy of treating them as part of project cost for determining project inventory, revenue and debtors. Expenditure of such nature incurred in earlier years and considered as part of project inventories under Projects/ Contract work in progress upto March 31, 2009 has been carried forward as such. Such amount has not been determined by the management in view of the practical difficulties involved, as explained. In the absence of availability of these amounts relating to the period upto March 31, 2009, we are unable to comment on the impact thereof on the carrying value of project inventories, revenue recognition and outstanding debtors and other adjustments that may be required in the financial statements.

Subject to that stated in clause g) and h) above having its impact as aforesaid, in our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the said accounts read with the Accounting policies and Notes thereon 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 Balance Sheet, of the state of affairs of the Company as at March 31,2012;

b) In the case of Statement of Profit and Loss, of the Profit for the year ended on that date; and

c) In the case of Cash Flow Statement, of the Cash flows for the year ended on that date.
