ANNEXURE REFERRED TO IN PARAGRAPH 3 IN OUR REPORT OF EVEN DATE TO THE SHAREHOLDERS OF ALCOBEX METALS LIMITED. 1.1 The Company has generally maintained proper records showing full particulars regarding valuation of different type of assets including quantitative details and situation of fixed assets. 1.2 The fixed assets are physically verified by the management according to a phased programme designed to cover all items over a period of two years, which in our opinion, is reasonable having regard to the size of the company and the nature of its business. However, all the assets could not be physically verified during the year. As such we are unable to comment on the clause (1) (b) of paragraph 4 of the order. 1.3 During the year no substantial part of fixed assets has been disposed off by the Company. Therefore, the provisions of clause (i) (c) of paragraph 4 of the aforesaid Order, in our opinion are not applicable to the Company. 2.1 As explained to us, the inventories namely Raw Material & Finished Goods in company's custody have been physically verified by the management during the year. As regards semi finished goods at the year end aggregating to Rs 6.61 lacs reference is drawn to Note 7 in schedule 25. In case of semi finished goods lying with third parties aggregating to Rs. 1.56 lacs, certificates confirming stocks in quantitative terms has been received at the year end. Stores & Spares have not been physically verified at the year end. 2.2 The procedures of physical verification of inventories followed by the management, as observed by us to the extent possible, are reasonable and adequate in relation to the size of the company and nature of its business. 2.3 On the basis of our examination of inventory records of the company, we are of the opinion that, the company is maintaining proper records of its inventory except for semi finished goods which is accounted for on the basis of technical estimates (Note 7 Schedule 26). The discrepancies, which were noticed on physical verification of inventory as compared to book records were not material and have been properly dealt with in the books of account. 3.1 a) The Company has not granted any loans, secured or unsecured to companies, firms or other parties covered in the register maintained under Section 301 of the Companies Act, 1956. b) In view of our comments in paragraph 3 (a) above, clauses (iii) (b) to (d) of paragraph 4 of the aforesaid Order are not applicable to the Company. c) The Company has taken unsecured loans from two companies covered in the register maintained under Section 301 of the Companies Act, 1956 in earlier years. The maximum amount involved during the year and the year end balance of loan taken was Rs. 223.69 lacs. d) In our opinion, the rate of interest and other terms and conditions on which loans have been taken from companies/parties listed in the register maintained under Section 301 of the Companies Act, 1956 are prima facie not prejudicial to the interest of the Company. e) The Company has generally been regular in the payment of interest wherever applicable. In absence of any stipulation as regards repayment of loan, we are unable to make any specific comment on the repayment of principal amount of loans taken. 4. In our opinion and according to the information and explanations given to us and having regard to management representations that for some items purchased for which comparable alternative quotations are not available/ obtained because of nature/quality of such items & delivery schedule, the internal control system needs to be strengthened as regards confirmation/ reconciliation of balances, dispatch of goods & realisability of debts in order to be commensurate with the nature of its business with regard to purchase of inventory, fixed assets and with regards to sale of goods & services. However, in our opinion, subject to above, there is no other continuing failure to correct major weakness in internal control system in these areas. 5.1 On the basis of the audit procedures performed by us, and according to the information, explanation and representations given to us, we are of opinion that, the contract or arrangement in which directors were interested as contemplated under Section 297 and sub section (6) of Section 299 of the Companies Act, 1956 and which were required to be entered in the register maintained under Section 301 of the said Act, have generally been so entered. 5.2 In our opinion and according to information and explanations given to us, the transactions made in pursuance of contracts or arrangements entered in the register maintained under Section 301 of the Companies Act, 1956 have been made at price which are reasonable having regards to prevailing market prices at that time or at prices determined by the management in absence of market quotation for similar items as the management has stated that the goods/services are made/supplied to order according to the specifications. 6.
