Disclaimer of Opinion

We were engaged to audit the accompanying standalone financial statements of RelianceInfrastructure Limited ("the Company") which comprise the standalone balancesheet as at March 31 2020 the standalone statement of profit and loss (including othercomprehensive income) standalone statement of changes in equity and standalone statementof cash flows for the year then ended and notes to the standalone financial statementsincluding a summary of the significant accounting policies and other explanatoryinformation (hereinafter referred to as "the standalone financial statements").

We do not express an opinion on the accompanying standalone financial statements of theCompany. Because of the significance of the matter described in the Basis for Disclaimerof Opinion section of our report we have not been able to obtain sufficient appropriateaudit evidence to provide a basis for an audit opinion on these standalone financialstatements.

Basis for Disclaimer of Opinion

1. We refer to Note 40 to the standalone financial statements regarding the Company'sexposure in an EPC Company as on March 31 2020 aggregating to ' 8066.08 Crore (net ofprovision of ' 3972.1 7 Crore). Further the Company has also provided corporateguarantees aggregating to ' 1775 Crore on behalf of the aforesaid EPC Company towardsborrowings of the EPC Company.

According to the Management of the Company these amounts have been funded mainly forgeneral corporate purposes and towards funding of working capital requirements of theparty which has been engaged in providing Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC)services primarily to the Company and its subsidiaries and its associates and the EPCCompany will be able to meet its obligation.

As referred to in the above note the Company has further provided Corporate Guaranteesof ' 4895.87 Crore in favour of certain companies towards their borrowings. According tothe Management of the Company these amounts have been given for general corporatepurposes.

We were unable to obtain sufficient and appropriate audit evidence about therelationship recoverability and possible obligation towards the Corporate Guaranteesgiven. Accordingly we are unable to determine the consequential implications arisingtherefrom in the standalone financial statements of the Company.

2. We refer to Note 42 to the standalone financial statements wherein the loss oninvocation of shares held in Reliance Power Limited (RPower) amounting to Rs.3050.98Crore for the year ended March 31 2020 has been adjusted against the capital reserve. Theabove treatment of loss on invocation of shares is not accordance with the Ind AS 28"Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures" and Ind AS 1 "Presentationof Financial Statements".

Further due to the invocation of shares as stated above RPower ceases to be anassociate of the Company. The balance investments in RPower have been carried at fairvalue in accordance with Ind AS 109 "Financial Instruments" and valued atcurrent market price and loss on fair valuation amounting to Rs. 1973.90 Crore has beenadjusted against the capital reserve. The above treatment is not in accordance with theInd AS 1 "Presentation of Financial Statements" and Ind AS 109 "FinancialInstruments".

Had the Company followed the treatments prescribed under the above mentioned Ind AS'sthe Profit before tax for the year ended would have been lower by ' 5024.88 Crore andcapital reserve would have been higher by an equivalent amount.

Material Uncertainty Related to Going Concern

We draw attention to Note 52 to the standalone financial statements wherein theCompany has outstanding obligations to lenders and the Company is also a guarantor for itssubsidiaries and associates whose loans have also fallen due which indicate that materialuncertainty exists that may cast significant doubt on the Company's ability to continue asa going concern. However for the reasons more fully described in the aforesaid note theaccounts of the Company have been prepared as a Going Concern.

Our opinion on the standalone financial statements is not modified in respect of thismatter.

The net foreignexchange gain of Rs.141.41 Crore for the year ended March 31 2020 has been credited toStatement of Profit and Loss and an equivalent amount has been transferred to GeneralReserve in terms of the Scheme. Had such transfer not been made profit before tax for theyear ended March 31 2020 would have been higher by Rs.141.41 Crore and General Reservewould have been lower by an equivalent amount.

2. We draw attention to Note 14(b) to the standalone financial statements regarding KMToll Road Private Limited (KMTR) a subsidiary of the Company has terminated theConcession Agreement with National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) for Kandla MundraRoad Project (Project) on May 7 2019 on account of Material Breach and Event of Defaultunder the provisions of the Concession Agreement by NHAI. The Company is confident ofrecovering its entire investment of Rs.544.94 Crore in KMTR as at March 31 2020 and noimpairment has been considered necessary against the above investment for the reasonsstated in the aforesaid note.
