Basis for Qualified Opinion:

We draw your attention towards a. Note no.31(ii) of the Consolidated Ind AS FinancialStatements regarding non-accrual of interest by the parent along with its subsidiaries onvarious credit facilities from bank & Financial Institutions subsequent to accountsbecoming NPA which is not in accordance with generally accepted Accounting principles.

The Estimated interest not provided for from 1st April 2018 to 31st March2019 workedout to an amount of Rs. 2233.81 Million. Due to non-recognition of interest asexpenditure loss for the current financial year and the other current financialliabilities are understated by Rs Rs. 2233.81 million.

b. Note no. 43 of the Consolidated Ind AS Financial Statements regarding invocation ofthe pledged shares of KSK Mahanadi Power Company Limited (KMPCL) an associate of theParent pledged by the Group with Consortium lenders as Security Trustee for the financialassistance granted by lenders to KMPCL.

Consequent to the above the Group has derecognised the related carrying values ofassets and liabilities of KMPCL along with its subsidiaries i.e. KSK Water InfrastructuresPrivate Limited ('KWIPL') Sai Power Pte Ltd ('SPPL') and associate i.e. Raigarh ChampaRail Infrastructure Private Limited ('RCRIPL') with effect from 27th March 2018. Pursuantto this the residual investments retained in KMPCL are recognised in accordance with INDAS 28 - Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures. The Group continue to carryremaining advances and amount receivable amounting to Rs. 26881.65 million pursuant tothe invocation at carrying value and no provision has been considered in these financialstatements by the management as impact if any is currently unascertainable.

c. Note no.45 of the Consolidated Ind AS Financial Statements regarding implementationof change in Management and restructure the debt under Outside Strategic DebtRestructuring Scheme ("OSDR") by lenders of VS Lignite Power Private Limited('VSLPPL') as per the RBI guidelines. However RBI notification dated 12th February 2018repealed all debt restructuring schemes (including OSDR) and directed lenders to implementany debt structuring as per the revised guidelines. VSLPPL is in active discussion withlenders to work out resolution plan by way of change of control.

Further the underlyingpower generation assets also continue to face significant headwinds with resultant lossesand defaulted in payment of interest and instalments dues to banks and financialinstitutions thereby materially a ecting the downstream investments and recoveriesthereto.

These conditions along with matters set forth in clauses (a) (b) and (c) aboveindicate the existence of material uncertainties which may cast significant doubt on theParent's ability to continue as going concern. However the statement has not beenprepared with such adjustments and management continues to prepare the financialstatements as going-concern.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the audit of the Consolidated Ind AS FinancialStatements:

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated Ind ASfinancial 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 theaggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of userstaken on the basis of these consolidated Ind AS financial statements.

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

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated Ind ASfinancial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit proceduresresponsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatementresulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involvecollusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internalcontrol.

Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to designaudit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3)(I) of theCompanies Act 2013 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.

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 ability ofthe Group and its associates and joint ventures to continue as a going concern. If weconclude that a material uncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in ourauditor's report to the related disclosures in the consolidated financial statements orif such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based onthe audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor's report. However future eventsor conditions may cause the Group and its associates to cease to continue as a goingconcern.

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

Obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding the financial information of theentities or business activities within the Group of which we are the independent auditorsand whose financial information we have audited to express an opinion on the consolidatedInd AS financial statements. We are responsible for the direction supervision andperformance of the audit of the financial statements of such entities included in theconsolidated Ind AS financial statements of which we are the independent auditors. For theother entities included in the consolidated Ind AS financial statements which have beenaudited by other auditors such other auditors remain responsible for the directionsupervision and performance of the audits carried out by them.

We communicate with those charged with governance of the Holding Company and such otherentities included in the consolidated Ind AS financial statements of which we are theindependent auditors regarding among other matters the planned scope and timing of theaudit and significant audit findings including any significant deficiencies in internalcontrol that we identify during our audit.
