Auditor's Report (Tamilnadu Telecommunications) Year End : Mar '15
1.  We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Tamilnadu
 Tele communications Limited(the Company), which comprise the Balance
 Sheet as at 31stMarch, 2015, the Statement of Profit and Loss, the Cash
 Flow Statement for the year then ended, and a summary of the
 significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.
 
 Management''s Responsibility for the Financial Statements
 
 2.  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 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.
 
 Auditor''s Responsibility
 
 3.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these 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.
 
 4.  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.
 
 5.  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, but not for the purpose of expressing
 an opinion on whether the Company has in place an adequate internal
 financial control system over financial reporting and the operating
 effectiveness of such controls. 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 adverse audit opinion on the
 financial statements.
 
 Opinion
 
 6.  In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to
 the explanations given to us, the aforesaid financial statements give
 the information required by the Companies Act, 2013 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 the Balance Sheet, of the state of affairs of the
 company as at 31st March, 2015;
 
 (b) In the case of the Statement of Profit and Loss, loss for the year
 ended on that date; and
 
 (c) In the cash of Cash Flow Statement, of the cash flows for the year
 ended on that date.
 
 Emphasis of Matter
 
 7.  Without qualifying our conclusion, we draw , attention to S.No - 3
 Note  25 - Notes to Accounts. As at 31st March 2015, the Company''s
 accumulated losses of Rs.  9400.69 Lakhs has eroded the Net Worth of
 the Company, indicating the existence of material uncertainity that may
 cast a doubt about the Company''s ability to continue as a going
 concern. The Company has incurred a loss of Rs.857.49 Lakhs for the
 year under audit. Based on the mitigating factors discussed in the said
 note, the Management believes that the Going Concern assumption is
 appropriate.
 
 Other Matter
 
 8.  The Deferred Ta x Asset amounts to Rs.1465.16 Lakhs, as of 31st
 March 2015, considering all eligible carried forward losses, as per AS
 22  Accounting for Taxes on Income. The same has not been provided
 for, in the books of account, considering the absence of virtual
 certainty of earning profits and prudence concept.
