An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence aboutthe amounts and disclosures in the standalone financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient andappropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the standalone financialstatements.

This factor indicatesa material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt about the Company's ability tocontinue as a going concern. However Company has approached its lenders to restructurethe debts which along-with the sale of its non-core assets will result into improvedliquidity and profitability as stated in the said note and therefore the management is ofthe view that going concern accounting is appropriate.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting
A company's internal financial control over financial reporting is aprocess designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financialreporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordancewith generally accepted accounting principles. A company's internal financial control overfinancial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to themaintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect thetransactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonableassurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of standalonefinancial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and thatreceipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance withauthorisations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonableassurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorised acquisition use ordisposition of the company's assets that could have a material effect on the financialstatements.
Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls Over FinancialReporting
Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls overfinancial reporting including the possibility of collusion or improper managementoverride of controls material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not bedetected. Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls overfinancial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financialcontrol over financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditionsor that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In our opinion the Company has in all material respects an adequateinternal financial controls system over financial reporting and such internal financialcontrols over financial reporting were operating effectively as at 31st March2018 based on the internal control over financial reporting criteria established by theCompany considering the essential components of internal control stated in the GuidanceNote on Audit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting issued by the ICAI.
