Auditors'' Report -Emphasis of Matters

The Company has incurred substantial losses from its operations during the current and previous year which has eroded its net-worth substantially. The Company has also incurred net operating cash loss during the current year. Further, the Company has defaulted in repayment of borrowing, defaulted in payment of statutory dues and there was loss of key management without replacement. These conditions, along with other matters set forth in Note 29, indicate the existence of a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt about the Company''s ability to continue as a going concern. However, the financial statement of the Company have been prepared on a going concern basis for the reasons stated in the said note. Our opinion is not modified in respect of these matters.

Reply to Qualification in Audit Report

The accumulated losses for the year ended 31st March, 2016 have resulted in Company''s erosion of more than 50 per cent of its peak net worth during the immediately preceding four financial years. However, the management is of the opinion that subject to approval of Restructuring Scheme by banks, the Company will be able to return to profitability over the next few years and may be in position to repay Loans and pay statutory dues. Hence, the financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company and its subsidiaries will continue as a going concern. No adjustments are hence made in the financial statements that might result from the outcome of this uncertainly.
