Sheet as at 31st March, 2015, the Statement of Profit and Loss and the
Cash Flow Statement for the year then ended, and a summary of the

Management''s Responsibility for the Standalone Financial Statements
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 standalone 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. This responsibility also includes
maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the
provisions of the Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Company and
for 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.
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these standalone
financial statements based on our audit. 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. 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.
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 control 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.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and
appropriate to provide a basis for our qualified audit opinion on the
standalone financial statements.

additional provision in the current year towards deferred tax asset.
