Auditor's Report

1. We have audited the attached Balance Sheet of Hindustan Zinc Limited (the Company) as at 31 March 2008, the Profit and Loss Account and Cash Flow statement of the Company for the year ended on that date, annexed thereto. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Companys management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. 2. We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards 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 management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. 3. As required by the Companies (Auditors Report] Order, 2003, issued by the Central Government of India in terms of sub-section (4A) of Section 227 of the Companies Act, 1956, we enclose in the Annexure a statement on the matters specified in paragraphs 4 and 5 of the said Order. 4. Reference is invited to Note 15 on Schedule 18 , relating to long-term investment in equity shares of a power company being classified as an intangible asset (Schedule 4) and amortised. This treatment is in preference to requirements of Accounting Standard 13 Accounting for Investments, Accounting Standard 30 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement and Schedule XIV of the Companies Act, 1956. This has resulted in profit for the year being lower by Rs. 4.67 crore (2007: Rs. 4.67 crore], investments being lower by Rs. 98.41 crores [2007: Rs. 98.41 crore] and reserves and surplus being lower by Rs. 33.04 crores (2007: Rs. 28.37 crore]. 5.
