Basis for Qualified Opinion

As mentioned in Note no.18.10 to the Financial Statements Non CurrentBorrowings include an amount of Rs. 207711.72 Lakhs due to certain banks and AssetsReconstruction Company. Banks holding 94.18% (by value) of the total principal debtequivalent to Rs. 339353.50 Lakhs assigned all their rights title and interests infinancial assistances granted by them to the Company in favour of Assets Care &Reconstruction Enterprise Limited acting in its capacity as Trustee of eight differentTrusts (ACRE). Until the revised terms and condition will be agreed between the Companyand ACRE the arrangement with those banks are valid and as per the arrangements withthose banks the Company is required to comply with certain covenants as referred in thesaid note and non-compliance with these covenants may give rights to the banks/ACRE todemand repayment of the loans. As at March 31 2020 the Company has not complied withcertain covenants and they have not been provided with any confirmation from those lendersfor extension of time to comply with these covenants. The Company has not classified theseliabilities as current liabilities as required by Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS)– 1 -"Presentation of Financial Statements".

We conducted our audit in accordance with Standards on Auditing (SAs)specified under section 143(10) of the Act. Our responsibilities under those Standards arefurther described in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the FinancialStatements section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with theCode of Ethics issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India together with theethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the Financial Statements under theprovisions of the Act and the Rules thereunder and we have fulfilled our other ethicalresponsibilities in accordance with these requirements and the ICAI's Code of Ethics.We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our qualified opinion.

Material Uncertainty Related to Going Concern

We draw attention to Note no. 36 to the Financial Statements regardingpreparation of Financial Statements of the Company on going concern basis notwithstandingthe fact that the Company continued to incur cash losses it's net worth has beenfully eroded impairment of certain non-current assets (Refer Note No. 2.11) loans havebeen called back by few of the secured lenders application has been made to NationalCompany Law Tribunal (NCLT) Mumbai under section 7 of the Insolvency and BankruptcyCode 2016 (IBC) by State Bank of India the erstwhile lead secured lender which has beencontested by the Company for the reasons stated in the said note. These conditionsindicate the existence of a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt on theCompany's ability to continue as going concern. Banks holding 94.18% (by value) ofthe total principal debt equivalent to Rs. 339353.50 Lakhs assigned all theirrights title and interests in financial assistances granted by them to the Company infavor of Assets Care & Reconstruction Enterprise Limited acting in its capacity asTrustee of eight different Trusts (ACRE). The appropriateness of assumption of goingconcern is critically dependent upon the Company's ability to raise requisite financeand generate cash flows in future to meet its obligations and to restructure its borrowingwith the lenders.

Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgmentwere of most significance in our audit of the Financial Statements of the current period.These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the Financial Statements as awhole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion onthese matters.

The existence of an impairment indicator is significantly influenced the Company has been incurring cash losses its net worth has been fully eroded and COVID - 19 Pandemic has impacted its business. Management concluded that the recoverable amount of certain PPE and CWIP were lower than their carrying values and accordingly the Company has made a provision of Rs. 56816.68 Lakhs as an impairment loss. These conclusions are dependent upon significant management judgement including in respect of: • Assessing internal controls designed for identification of impairment indicators.
-Estimated utilization disposal values and • Ensuring that the methodology of the impairment exercise continues to comply with the requirements of Ind AS as adopted including evaluating management's assessment of indicators of impairment against indicators of impairment specified within Ind AS 36.
-Estimated resale values provided by an independent external valuer. • Assessing the appropriateness of the Company's valuation methodology applied in determining the recoverable amount. In making this assessment it took into consideration the valuation report of the specialist involved by the Company. It also required evaluating the objectivity independence and competency of specialists involved in the valuation process.
We considered this matter as key audit matter due to the significance of the carrying value of the assets being assessed and due to the level of management judgement required in the assumptions impacting the impairment assessment and the sensitivity of the impairment model. • Verifying the completeness of disclosure in the financial statements as per Ind AS 36.

Auditors' Responsibility for the audit of the Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether theFinancial 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. Reasonableassurance is a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted inaccordance with SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists.Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if individuallyor in the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisionsof users taken on the basis of these Financial Statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professionaljudgment 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 theaudit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Undersection 143(3) (i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion onwhether the Company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and theoperating effectiveness of such controls.

Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to thedate of our auditor's report. However future events or conditions may cause theCompany to cease to continue as a going concern.

Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of theFinancial Statements including the disclosures and whether the Financial Statementsrepresent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.

We communicate with those charged with governance regarding amongother matters the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findingsincluding any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during ouraudit.

We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that wehave complied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and tocommunicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thoughtto bear on our independence and where applicable related safeguards.

From the matters communicated with those charged with governance wedetermine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the FinancialStatements of the current year and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe thesematters in our auditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosureabout the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a mattershould not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing sowould reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.
