We have audited the attached Balance Sheet of ADHUNIK SYNTHETICS LIMITED as at 31st March 2008, the Profit & Loss Account and also Cash Flow Statement for the year ended on that date, annexed thereto. These financial statements are the responsibility of the company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. 2. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted 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 test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles and significant estimates made by the 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 (Auditor's Report) Order, 2003 (hereinafter referred to as 'the CARO 2003') issued by the Central Government of India in terms of section 227(4A) of the Companies Act, 1956, (hereinafter referred to as `the Act') we enclose in the Annexure a statement on the matters specified in paragraphs 4 and 5 of the said order. 4.

Thirdly, the comparative inventory holding levels, in view of continuous steep decline in the turnover in past few years, as compared to variier years with turnover, in our opinion, are Wgher therefore there is a possibility of loss on sale / realization of slow moving /old items also. The impact of the above remarks, presently not ascertainable and, therefore, cannot be commented upon. (c) AS-15 as referred to in Note No. 5 of schedule 20, the company has neither formulated any policy for amployees' benefits nor made provision for employees' benefits, therefore for want of actuarial valuation, the amount of the same and consequential impact thereof on the profit floss is sat ascertainable.
