Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these Financial Statements based on ouraudit. We have taken into account the provisions of the Act the accounting and auditingstandards and matters which are required to be included in the audit report under theprovisions of the Act and the Rules made thereunder.
We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing specified underSection 143(10) of the Act.

In making those risk assessmentsthe auditor considers internal financial control relevant to the Companyspreparation of the Financial Statements that give a true and fair view in order to designaudit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances but not for the purpose ofexpressing an opinion on whether the Company has in place an adequate internal financialcontrols system over financial reporting and the operating effectiveness of such controls.An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and thereasonableness of the accounting estimates made by the Companys Directors as wellas evaluating the overall presentation of the Financial Statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our qualified audit opinion on the Financial Statements.
Basis for Qualified Opinion
a) The Company has as on 31st March 2015 recognized deferred tax asset(net) of Rs.
29998 Lakhs in the financial Statement on its carried forward Accumulated Losses(including unabsorbed depreciation) interest expenses (including Funded Interest TermLoan (FITL)) Disallowance of Expenses Gratuity and Leave Encashment. The principles ofAccounting Standard- 22 notified in this regard clearly states that deferred tax assetsshould be recognized and carried forward only to the extent that there is a virtualcertainty that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which suchdeferred tax assets can be realized. In our opinion considering the huge accumulatedlosses and the present scenario of the Companys business there is no certainty thatthe company would have sufficient future taxable income to justify the creation ofDeferred Tax Asset. Had the Deferred tax asset not been created the net the loss for theyear ended 31st March 2015 would have been higher by Rs. 29998 Lakhs and theaccumulated losses as at that date would have been higher by the same amount. Refer NoteNo. 31 forming part of the Financial Statements.
b) The company has issued refund bank guarantees to customers against various advancestage payments received by the Company. Several of these customers had invoked the BankGuarantees and the Banks have made payment aggregating to Rs. 96632.71 Lakhs on accountof refund bank guarantee invoked by the customers along with Interest of Rs. 30245.42Lakhs and foreign exchange variation of Rs. 32843.42 Lakhs upto 31st March 2015 and hascharged further interest of Rs. 9027 lakhs on such invoked refund bank guarantee paymentsupto 31st March 2015. The Company is of the opinion that payments under therefund bank guarantee are made by banks without following due process of law. The Companyhas also filed a suit before the Honble City civil court Mumbai against the lendingbanks for payment of such invoked refund bank guarantees and the same is pending fordisposal. Hence the Company has not made any provision in its Financial Statements for theyear ended 31st March 2015 in respect of any of the above payments made by the banks. Inview of the pending litigation and the uncertainty of outcome of such pending litigationwe are unable to quantify its possible effect that may arise upon settlement of suchlitigation on the Financial Statement for the year ended 31st March 2015. Refer Note No.32 forming part of the Financial Statements.
c) The Company had recognized for subsidy under Ship Building Subsidy Scheme in earlieryears of which subsidy of Rs.64792.77 Lakhs is outstanding as on 31st March2015. The receipt of aforesaid Subsidy is dependent upon completion of vessels andcompliance with other terms and conditions of the Shipbuilding Subsidy Scheme of theGovernment of India. In our opinion the recognition of above claim being contingent assetin nature is not in conformity with AS-29 Provisions Contingent liabilities andContingent assets. In view of the uncertainty involved with respect to generation offuture cash flow as required for completion of vassals we are unable to comment on therecoverability or otherwise of the aforementioned Subsidy receivable amounting to Rs.64792.77 Lakhs. Therefore the possible impact of the same on the Financial Statement forthe year ended 31st March 2015 cannot be ascertained. Refer Note No. 33 forming part ofthe Financial Statements.
d) The Company had been referred to CDR Cell on 16th December 2011 and thefinancing arrangements under the scheme have been partly implemented. The said CDR schemehas been subsequently revoked by CDR EG being monitoring institutions vide its letterdated 21st August 2014. Some of the lenders including Lead Bankers have transferred thereright title securities and interest in financial assistances to Edelweiss AssetReconstruction Company Limited (EARC).

As of this date the Companys total liabilities exceed itstotal assets by Rs 106878.36 Lakhs and its net worth has been fully eroded.
The appropriateness of the going concern basis is interalia dependent uponcompanys successful financial restructuring including raising requisite finance forits revival and consequent generation of future cash flow to meets its obligations. In ouropinion these conditions along with other matters indicate the existence of materialuncertainty that may cast doubt about the Companys ability to continue as goingconcern.
e) The Company had given loans and advances of Rs. 91048.18 Lakhs to its subsidiarieswhich in turn holds investment in GOL Offshore Ltd (GOL). As per the Audited FinancialResult of GOL as on 31st March 2015 there are continuing defaults in repayment of loansincluding invocation of some of the corporate guarantees and in some cases recoveryproceedings have been initiated.
