In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanationsgiven to us the aforesaid standalone financial statements give the information requiredby the Act in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with theaccounting principles generally accepted in India of the state of affairs of the Companyas at March 31 2020 and profit/loss changes in equity and its cash flowsfor the year ended on that date.

Basis for Opinion

We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) specifiedunder section 143(10) of the Companies Act 2013. Our responsibilities under thoseStandards are further described in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of theFinancial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Company inaccordance with the Code of Ethics issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants ofIndia together with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of thefinancial statements under the provisions of the Companies Act 2013 and the Rulesthereunder and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance withthese requirements and the Code of Ethics. We believe that the audit evidence we haveobtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion.

Other Matter Para

“ The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)"generally known as COVID-19 which was declared as a pandemic by the WHO on March 112020 continues to spread across India and there is an unprecedented level of disruptionon socioeconomic front across the country. Globally countries and businesses are undervarious restrictions and lockdown. Considering the severe health hazard associated withCOVID-19 pandemic the Government of India declared a lock down effective from March 242020 there is a high level of uncertainty about the duration of the lockdown travellingrestrictions and the time required for things to get normal. Due to lockdown andtravelling restrictions our team was unable to visit client premises and plants locationsregularly and most of the work was done on the basis of mail communication Scan copy ofthe documents to the extent made available and workings shared by company.

Material uncertainty related to Going Concern

We draw attention to Note 37 of the Financial Statements which indicates that thecompany has incurred a loss of Rs. 1151.22 Lakhs during the year ended 31stMarch 2020 and has accumulated losses due to which its net worth has been fully eroded andas of that date the Company's current liabilities exceeds its current assets by Rs.1351.95 Lakhs. These conditions indicate that a material uncertainty exists that may castsignificant doubt on the company's ability to continue as going concern. However theFinancial Statements of the Company has been prepared on a going concern basis for thereasons stated in said note. Our opinion is not modified in this respect.

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.

Description of each key audit matter in accordance with SA 701:

The Key Audit Matter How the matter was addressed in our Audit
Revenue Recognition Principal Audit Procedures
Revenue from the sale of goods (hereinafter referred to as “Revenue”) is recognised when the Company performs its obligation to its customers and the amount of revenue can be measured reliably and recovery of the consideration is probable. Our audit approach was a combination of test of internal controls and substantive procedures including:
The timing of such recognition in case of sale of goods is when the control over the same is transferred to the customer which is mainly upon delivery. The timing of revenue recognition is relevant to the reported performance of the Company. The management considers revenue as a key measure for evaluation of performance. • Assessing the appropriateness of the Company's revenue recognition accounting policies in line with Ind AS 115 (“Revenue from Contracts with Customers”) and testing thereof.
• Evaluating the integrity of the general information and technology control environment and testing the operating effectiveness of key IT application controls.
There is a risk of revenue being recorded before control is transferred. • Evaluating the design and implementation of Company's controls in respect of revenue recognition.
Refer to the Standalone Financial Statements - Significant Accounting Policies • Testing the effectiveness of such controls over revenue cut off at year- end.
• Testing the supporting documentation for sales transactions recorded during the period closer to the year end and subsequent to the year end including examination of credit notes issued after the year end to determine whether revenue was recognised in the correct period.
Going Concern Performing analytical procedures on current year revenue based on monthly trends and where appropriate conducting further enquiries and testing
The financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis as discussed in note 37. In assessing the appropriateness of the going concern assumption used in preparing the financial statements our procedures included amongst others:
We included the going concern assumption as a key audit matter as it relies on debt from related parties and Inter corporate deposits to cover necessary expenditure. Understanding what forecast expenditure is committed and what could be considered discretionary.
Considering the liquidity of existing assets on the balance sheet.
Considering the terms of the bank loan and trade finance facilities and the amount available for drawdown.
Considering potential downside scenarios and the resultant impact on available funds.
Group continues to incur loss current liabilities exceed current assets and Group has defaulted in repayment of borrowings payment of regulatory and statutory dues these events indicate that material uncertainty exists that may cast significant doubt on Group's ability to continue as a going concern.

Emphasis of Matters

We draw attention to the following matters:

1. CIRP has been filed in case of the company by Financial creditors i.e. Bank of Indiaunder provisions of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016. Pursuant to an applicationfiled by Bank Of India before the National Company Law Tribunal Mumbai Bench(“NCLT”) in terms of Section 9 of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016 readwith the rules and regulations framed thereunder (“Code”) the NCLT had admittedthe application and ordered the commencement of corporate insolvency resolution process(“CIRP”) of Syncom Healthcare Limited (“Corporate Debtor”) vide itsorder dated May 15 2018. The NCLT had appointed Mr. Jagdishkumar Parulkar as the interimresolution professional for the Corporate Debtor vide its order dated May 18 2018.

2. The Company has defaulted in repayment of dues to the Banks of India since December2016. The Said accounts have been classified as Non-Performing Asset (NPA) by the Bank.

3. The Company is yet to comply with reporting requirements for making full provisionagainst investment made in its wholly owned subsidiary.

4. Refer to Note 07 to the Standalone Financial Statements; Trade Receivables Rs.861.28 Lakh for which provisions have been made to the tune of Rs. 836.32 Lakhs in Booksof Accounts.

5. As on 31st March 2020 the Tender Deposits with various Govt. authorizedwere Rs. 1.55 Cr. These Deposits are held for more than 180 Days.

6. According to records produced before us there is significant amount of Inventorylying Non-Moving/ Slow Moving. Since the company has not obtained any technical and/orcommercial evaluation for the same we are unable to comment on the realizable value ofthe same which may be lower than the amount at which it has been reflected in the balancesheet.

7. The Input Credit under GST (Goods & Service Tax) claimed with credits reflectedon GST Portal are yet to be reconciled. Apparently there is mismatch in Input claimed byCompany in Returns and Books of Accounts of Company vis-a-vis Input available on GSTPortal.

Management's Responsibility for the Standalone 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 standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financialposition financial performance (changes in equity)5 and cash flows of the Company inaccordance with6 the accounting principles generally accepted in India including theaccounting Standards specified under section 133 of the Act. This responsibility alsoincludes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions ofthe Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Company and for preventing and detectingfrauds and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate accountingpolicies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and designimplementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls that wereoperating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accountingrecords relevant to the preparation and presentation of the financial statement that givea true and fair view and are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud orerror. In preparing the financial statements management is responsible for assessing theCompany's ability to continue as a going concern disclosing as applicable mattersrelated to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless managementeither intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations or has no realisticalternative but to do so. Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing theCompany's financial reporting process.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the 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.

Paragraph 40(b) of this SA explains that the shaded material below can be located in anAppendix to the auditor's report. Paragraph 40(c) explains that when law regulation orapplicable auditing standards expressly permit reference can be made to a website of anappropriate authority that contains the description of the auditor's responsibilitiesrather than including this material in the auditor's report provided that the descriptionon the website addresses and is not inconsistent with the description of the auditor'sresponsibilities below.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintain 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 control relevant to the audit in order todesign audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3)(i)of the Companies Act 2013 we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whetherthe company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operatingeffectiveness of such controls. Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies usedand the reasonableness of 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.

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 alsoprovide those charged with governance with a statement that we have complied with relevantethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with them allrelationships 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 determine thosematters that were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements of thecurrent period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in ourauditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter orwhen in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not becommunicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonablybe expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.

Other Matters

Refer to note no. 10 attached to the Financial statements The amount of Loans andAdvances given included in Advances recoverable in Cash or kind or for value to bereceived are closely monitored by Board of Directors and therefore no appraisal renewalpolicies procedures and documents has been executed.

Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.
