EMPHASIS OF MATTER
(A) Assignment of SBI debt to ARC
A lender bank of the company viz. State Bank of India (SBI) has assigned its loans andother facilities along with underlying financial documents together with all the rightstitle and interest to Edelweiss Asset Reconstruction Company Limited acting in itscapacity as trustee of the EARC Trust- SC 306 for the benefits of the holders of theSecurity Receipts issued by the trustee there under.
During the reporting period there has been no written agreement between the Company andEdelweiss Asset Reconstruction Company Limited to crystallize the amount payable andinterest thereon to them hence the said debt till then is continued to be shown aspayable to SBI instead of Edelweiss Asset Reconstruction Company Limited.
(B) One Time Settlement (OTS) with PNB
The company had proposed their OTS offer to Punjab National Bank (PNB) in Quarterending 30th June 2019 and the same has been rejected by the bank in the Quarterended 30th September 2019. Against the dues towards PNB the company has made apayment of Rs. 6 Crores which stands parked in a separate non-lien account.
(C) Interest provisioning on facilities from
Consortium banks & Optionally Convertible
The Company's various credit facilities including Optionally Convertible Debentureshave been declared Non-Performing Assets/ Recalled by its respective banks.There is a usual practice that banks discontinue to account for as income inrespect to the accrued interest on such assets subsequent to the declaration of these asNon-performing assets. The bankers of the company too have not accounted asincome in respect to the interest subsequent to NPA declaration date. In orderto achieve the desired congruency on this issue & uncertainty of the amount liable tobe paid the management of the company has not provided for such interest i.e. interest oncredit facilities subsequent to the date of declaration of theses credit facilities asnon-performing. Such interest amounts to Rs. 7.23 Crores and Rs.27.58 Crores forCurrent quarter & Year ended 31st March 2020 respectively (including on theassigned debts of SBI) and Rs 16.297 Lakhs and Rs 65.722 Lakhs in respect tooptionally converted debentures for Current Quarter & year ended 31 stMarch 2020 respectively which has resulted in the understatement of current liabilitiesand overstatement of profits by same amount. Even though the debts of SBI have beenassigned to Edelweiss Asset Reconstruction Company Limited in absence of any expressagreement between the company and Edelweiss Asset Reconstruction Company Limited nointerest has been accounted for in this respect. This interest is not recorded in Profit& Loss Account.

1. In conjunction with our audit of the financial statements of Modern Dairies Limited(the Company) as of and for the year ended 31st March 2020 we haveaudited the internal financial controls over financial reporting (IFCoFR) of the companyof as of that date.

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for establishing and maintaininginternal financial controls based on the internal control over financial reportingcriteria established by the Company considering the essential components of internalcontrol stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls over FinancialReporting issued by Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. These responsibilitiesinclude the design implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controlsthat were operating effectively for ensuring the orderly and efficient conduct of thecompany's business including adherence to company's policies the safeguarding of itsassets the prevention and detection of frauds and errors the accuracy and completenessof the accounting records and the timely preparation of reliable financial informationas required under the Act.
3. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's IFCoFR based on ouraudit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing issued by theInstitute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) and deemed to be prescribed underSection 143(10) of the Act to the extent applicable to an audit of IFCoFR and theGuidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting (theGuidance Note) issued by the ICAI. Those Standards and the Guidance Noterequire that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtainreasonable assurance about whether adequate IFCoFR were established and maintained and ifsuch controls operated effectively in all material respects.
4. Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacyof the IFCoFR and their operating effectiveness. Our audit of IFCoFR included obtaining anunderstanding of IFCoFR assessing the risk that a material weakness exists and testingand evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on theassessed risk.

5. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our audit opinion on the Company's IFCoFR.
Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
6. A Company's IFCoFR is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regardingthe reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements forexternal purposes in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. A Company'sIFCoFR includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance ofrecords that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions anddispositions of the assets of the company; (2)provide reasonable assurance thattransactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements inaccordance with generally accepted accounting principles and that receipts andexpenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorisations ofmanagement and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regardingprevention or timely detection of unauthorised acquisition use or disposition of theCompany's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
7. Because of the inherent limitations of IFCoFR including the possibility ofcollusion or improper management override of controls material misstatements due to erroror fraud may occur and not be detected. Also projections of any evaluation of the IFCoFRto future periods are subject to the risk that IFCoFR may become inadequate because ofchanges in conditions or that the degree of compliance with the policies or proceduresmay deteriorate.
8. In our opinion the Company has in all material respects adequate internalfinancial controls over financial reporting and such internal financial controls overfinancial reporting were operating effectively as at 31st March 2020 based onthe internal control over financial reporting criteria established by the Companyconsidering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note onAudit of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute ofChartered Accountants of India.
