We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Jupiter
Industries and Leasing Limited (the Company), which comprise the
Balance Sheet as at March 31, 2014, the Statement of Profit and Loss
and 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) read with the General Circular
15/2013 dated 13th September, 2013 of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs
in respect of Section 133 of the Companies Act, 2013 and in accordance
with the accounting principles generally accepted in India. 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.
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, but not for the
purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company''s
internal control. 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 qualified audit opinion.
