2. Basis for Qualified Opinion

We refer to Note 35 to the financial statements in respect of preparation of thefinancial statements of the Company on going concern basis for the reasons stated therein.During the financial year ended March 31 2019 the Company has incurred losses of

Rs 18011.42 lakhs resulting into accumulated losses of

The Company hasobligation towards fund based borrowings aggregating to Rs101064.49 lakhs as on March 312019 including working capital loans and interest accrued thereon. The Company's currentliabilities have exceeded current assets as on March 31 2019. These matters require theCompany to generate additional cash flow to fund the operations as well as payments tolenders creditors statutory dues and other obligations. These conditions indicate theexistence of a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt on the company'sability to continue as going concern and therefore the company may be unable to realizeits assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. Accordingly weare unable to comment on the consequential impact if any on the accompanying financialstatements.

We conducted our audit of the financial statements in accordance with the Standards onAuditing (SAs) specified under section 143(10) of the Act.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficientand appropriate to provide a basis for our qualified opinion on the financial statements.

3. Emphasis of Matters

We refer to:

(a) Note 40 to the financial statements regarding pending confirmation in respect ofcertain trade receivables security deposits given/taken advances to suppliers tradepayables and advances from customers. The Management believes that on confirmation therewill not be any material impact on the accompanying financial statements.

Our opinion is not modified in respect of these matters.

4. Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period. These matterswere addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a whole and informing our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters. Wehave determined the matter described below to be key audit matters to be communicated inour report:

S. Key Audit Matter How our audit addressed the key audit matter
No.
1. Revenue from Sale of Products
(as described in note 3.5 of the financial statements) Following audit procedures have been performed to address this key audit matter:
Revenue from contracts with customers is recognized when control of the goods are transferred to the customer at an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods. Assessed the design and tested the operating effectiveness of internal controls automated and manual related to revenue recognition.
The revenue is one of the key profit drivers. The terms of sales arrangements including the timing of transfer of control delivery specifications create complexity and judgement in determining timing of sales revenues. Performed sample test of individual sales transaction and traced to sales invoices sales orders and other related documents. Checked that the conditions for revenue recognitions are satisfied.
Accordingly due to the significant risk associated with revenue recognition in accordance with terms of Ind AS 115 ‘Revenue from Contracts with Customers' it was determined to be a key audit matter in our audit of the financial statements. Performed inventory reconciliation substantive testing for cut-offs confirmation of receivables balances and analytical procedure.

The other information comprises the information included in the ManagementDiscussion and Analysis Director's Report including its Annexure Corporate Governanceand Shareholder's Information but does not include the financial statements and ourauditor's report thereon.

Our opinion on the financial statements does not cover the other information and we donot express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the financial statements our responsibility is to readthe other information and in doing so consider whether the other information ismaterially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained during thecourse of our audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated.

If based on the work we have performed we conclude that there is a materialmisstatement of this other information we are required to report that fact. We havenothing to report in this regard.

6. Responsibility of Management and Those Charge with Governance for the FinancialStatements

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in section134(5) of the Act with respect to the preparation of these financial statements that givea true and fair view of the financial position financial performance total comprehensiveincome changes in equity and cash flows of the Company in accordance with the accountingprinciples generally accepted in India including the accounting standards specified undersection 133 of the Act.

Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company's financialreporting process.

7. Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financialstatements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or errorand to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a highlevel of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAswill always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise fromfraud or error and are considered material if individually or in the aggregate theycould reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on thebasis of these financial statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statementswhether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsive to thoserisks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis forour opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud ishigher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusion forgeryintentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internal control.

Obtain an understanding of internal financial controls relevant to the audit in orderto design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether theCompany has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operatingeffectiveness of such controls.

Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness ofaccounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.

Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basis ofaccounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertaintyexists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company'sability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty existswe are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures inthe financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion.Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor'sreport. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue asa going concern.

Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the financial statementsincluding the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent the underlyingtransactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.

We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among other matters theplanned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings including anysignificant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit.

We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we have compliedwith relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with themall relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on ourindependence and where applicable related safeguards.

From the matters communicated with those charged with Governance we determine thosematters that were of most significance in the Audit of Financial Statements of the currentperiod and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in our Auditor'sReport unless Law or Regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter or when inextremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not be communicated in ourReport because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonably be expected tooutweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our audit opinion on the Company's internal financial controls systemover financial reporting.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting

A company's internal financial control over financial reporting is a process designedto provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and thepreparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generallyaccepted accounting principles. A company's internal financial control over financialreporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance ofrecords that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions anddispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance thattransactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements inaccordance with generally accepted accounting principles and that receipts andexpenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorisations ofmanagement and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regardingprevention or timely detection of unauthorised acquisition use or disposition of thecompany's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting

Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financialreporting including the possibility of collusion or improper management override ofcontrols material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls over financialreporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial controlover financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or thatthe degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Opinion

In our opinion to the best of our information and according to the explanations givento us the Company has in all material respects an adequate internal financial controlssystem over financial reporting and such internal financial controls over financialreporting were operating effectively as at March 31 2019 based on the internal controlover financial reporting criteria established by the Company considering the essentialcomponents of internal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal FinancialControls Over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants ofIndia.
