(a) The Company has been continuously incurring substantial losses since past fewyears. The Company's current liabilities exceed its current assets and further the networth of the Company has been fully eroded these events indicate a material uncertaintythat casts a significant doubt on the Company's ability to continue as a going concern andtherefore it may be unable to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in thenormal course of business. The financial statements do not disclose the fact that thefundamental accounting assumption of going concern has not been followed.
(b) We draw attention towards the fact that the Company's financialfacilities/arrangements including Term Loans Working Capital Facilities and Non FundBased Credit Facilities have expired and the accounts with the Banks have turned into NonPerforming Assets.

The Company has not provided for interest on its banking credit facilities amounting toRs. 8603.43 lakhs for the year ended March 31 2021. Had the same been accounted for;the net loss (after tax) for the year ended March 31 2021 would have increased by Rs.8603.43 lakhs. Total amount which the Company has not recorded cumulatively upto March31 2021 amounted to Rs.53773.55 lakhs.
(c) On November 27 2019 the order of Debt Recovery Tribunal was passed wherein ithas been directed to the Company to clear dues amounting to Rs. 13971.99 lakhs andinterest and penalty within a period of 2 months from the date of order failing which theBank will be entitled to sell the hypothecated assets mortgage properties and otherpersonal movable and immovable properties of the Company and guarantors.

(d) Attention is also drawn to the fact that the Company has not provided forimpairment or diminishing value of its assets/investment as per Ind AS 36-Impairment of Assets' as notified under Section 133 of the Companies Act 2013. Theeffect of such Impairment or diminishing value has not been quantified by the managementand hence the same is not ascertainable.
(e) We also draw attention to the fact of non-receipt of confirmations of balances fromthe Sundry Debtors Deposit Accounts Unsecured Loans Loans & Advances InvestmentsBanks Sundry Creditors and other liabilities. Pending receipt of confirmation of thesebalances and consequential reconciliations / adjustments if any the resultant impact onthe financial statements is not ascertainable.

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 matters described below to be the key audit matters to be communicatedin our report:

The otherinformation comprises the information included in the Annual Report but does not includethe financial statements and our auditor's report thereon. The annual report is expectedto be made available to us after the date of this auditor's report.
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.
When we read the Annual Report if we conclude that there is a material misstatementtherein we are required to communicate the matter to those charged with governance.
Management's Responsibility for the Ind AS Financial Statements
The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in Section134(5) of the Companies Act 2013 ("the Act") with respect to the preparation ofthese Ind AS financial statements to give a true and fair view of the financial positionfinancial performance including other comprehensive income cash flows and changes inequity of the Company in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted inIndia including the Indian Accounting Standards ("Ind AS") specified inthe Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules 2015 (as amended) under Section 133 ofthe Act.

The Board of Directors are responsible for overseeing the Company's financial reportingprocess.
Auditors' Responsibility for Audit of 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 weexercise professional judgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit.We also:
Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financialstatements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsiveto those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide abasis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting fromfraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusionforgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internal control.
Obtain an understanding of internal financial controls relevant to the audit inorder to 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 reasonablenessof accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.
Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basisof accounting 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 financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent theunderlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.
Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the financial statements thatindividually 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 factors 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 determined mattersthat were of most significance in the audit of the 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.
