Our opinion on financial statement does not cover the other information and we do notexpress any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the standalone financial statements our responsibilityis to read the other information and in doing so consider whether the other informationis materially inconsistent with the standalone financial statements or our knowledgeobtained during the course of our audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated.

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

Management's responsibility for the Standalone Financial Statements

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 standalone financial statementsthat give a true and fair view of the financial position financial performance totalcomprehensive income changes in equity and cash flows of the company in accordance withapplicable Ind AS and other accounting principles generally accepted in India.

This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records inaccordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding the assets of the Company andfor preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection and application ofappropriate accounting policies; making judgements and estimates that are reasonable andprudent; and design implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financialcontrols that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness ofthe accounting records relevant to the preparation and presentation of the standalonefinancial statement that give a true and fair view and are free from materialmisstatement whether due to fraud or error.

The Board of Directors are responsible for overseeing the company's financial reportingprocess.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of standalone financial statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalonefinancial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraudor error and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assuranceis a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordancewith SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements canarise from fraud or error and are considered material if individually or in aggregatethey could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken onthe basis of these standalone financial statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgement andmaintain professional scepticism 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 procedure 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 standalone financial statement or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify ouropinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of ourauditor's report. However future events or conditions may cause the company to cease tocontinue as a going concern.

Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the standalone financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the standalone financial statementsrepresent the underlying transaction and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.

Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the standalone financial statementsthat individually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may be influenced. We considerquantitative materiality and qualitative factor in (i) planning the scope of our auditwork and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effect of anyidentified misstatements in the financial statements.

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 the standalone financial statementsof the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these mattersin our auditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosures about thematter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not becommunicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonablybe expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.

Matter of Emphasis

We draw attention to Note 26 (a) in the financial statements regarding handing over ofonly operational asset of the company to the auction purchaser pursuant to Hon'ble SupremeCourt order and 26 (e) regarding erosion of net worth raising significant doubt on thecompany's ability to continue as a going concern.
