In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanationsgiven to us except for the effects of the matter described in the Basis for QualifiedOpinion and Emphasis of Matters section of our report the aforesaid financial statementsgive the information required by the Companies Act 2013 in the manner so required and givea true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted inIndia of the state of affairs of the Company as at March 312020 and its loss changes inequity and its cash flows for the year ended on that date.
Basis for Qualified Opinion
I) Due to defaults in repayment of loans taken from Bank/s the account of the companyhas been classified as nonperforming asset by banks in the previous financial years andthe banks have not charged the interest / reversed the unpaid interest charged from thedate the account has been classified as non-performing. No provision has been made in thebooks of accounts maintained by the Company for interest / penal interest if any onthese term loans amounting to about Rs. 140736639 /- [exact amount cannot beascertained) for the year ended March 31 2020 hence to that extent finance cost totalloss and current financial liabilities is estimated to be understated by about Rs.140736639 /- [exact amount cannot be ascertained) for the year ended March 31 2020.Further no provision for interest / penal interest if any on such term loans has beenmade in books of accounts from the date the account of the Company has been classified asnon-performing in the books of those banks.
ii) No provision for dimunition in value of investment is made in books of accounts ason March 31 2020 even though the fair value of Investment of the Company of Rs.30000000/- in Equity Shares of the Company's Subsidiaries i.e. HHP BroadcastingServices Private Limited MPCR Broadcasting Service Private Limited UBJ BroadcastingPrivate Limited and Rs. 301200000/- in Company's Associate i.e. Krishna ShowbizServices Private Limited is lower than their cost of acquisition. The loss for the yearended March 312020 is understated and non-current investments of the Company as on March312020 are overstated to that extent.
iii) The aggregate carrying value of Business and Commercial Rights and ChannelDevelopment Cost in the books of the Company as on March 312020 is Rs. 1278134460 /-.There is no revenue generation from monetization of these assets during the year endedMarch 312020 due to which the Company has incurred substantial losses during the yearended March 312020 and previous financial years. There is a strong indication ofimpairment in the value of these Business and Commercial Rights and Channel DevelopmentCost and therefore we are of the opinion that the impairment loss of Rs. 1278134460 /-should be provided on all such assets in the books of accounts of the Company as on March31 2020. The assets of the Company are overstated and net loss for the year ended March312020 is understated to that extent.
iv) The Company has not provided for loss allowances on financial guarantee contractsamounting to Rs. 115980252 /- [excluding interest / penalty charges if any) given bythe Company on behalf of its related group companies to its secured lenders which is to berecognized as required by Indian Accounting Standard [IND-AS 109). The financialliabilities of the Company and net loss for the year ended March 312020 is understated tothat extent.
v) The Company has not accounted the lease transactions as per requirements of IndianAccounting Standard [IND AS) 116 which is applicable from April 12019. The impact ifany of such non-compliance of IND-AS 116 on the financials of the Company for the yearended March 312020 is unascertainable.
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 we have fulfilledour other ethical responsibilities in
accordance with these requirements and the ICAI's Code of Ethics. We believe that theaudit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for ourqualified opinion.
Emphasis of Matters
i) The financial statements are prepared on going concern basis notwithstanding thefact that loans have been recalled back by secured lenders current liabilities aresubstantially higher than the current assets issue of notices under Securitisation andReconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act 2002recovery proceedings initiated with debt recovery tribunal symbolic possession ofmortgaged property provided as collateral by promoters invocation of part of the sharespledged as collaterals by bank invocation of corporate guarantees from guarantors of theloan by the secured lenders of the Company and substantial losses incurred by the Companyduring the year ending March 312020 and previous financial years. All of the aboveconditions indicate that a material uncertainty exists that may cast significant doubt onthe company's ability to continue as a going concern.
ii) Attention is drawn to Note No.32 to the Standalone financial statements whichdescribes that the extent to which the COVID-19 Pandemic will impact the Company'sfinancial statements in next financial year will depend on future developments which arehighly uncertain.

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

Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company's financialreporting 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.
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 used and the reasonablenessof 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 achieve 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 also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we have compliedwith relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with themall relationships 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 the current period and aretherefore the key audit matters.
We describe these matters in our auditor's report unless law or regulation precludespublic disclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determinethat a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences ofdoing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.

Those Standards and the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethicalrequirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whetheradequate internal financial controls over financial reporting was established andmaintained and if such controls operated effectively in all material respects.
Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacy ofthe internal financial controls system over financial reporting and their operatingeffectiveness.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
A company's internal financial control over financial reporting is a process designedto provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and thepreparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generallyaccepted accounting principles. A company's internal financial control over financialreporting 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 authorizations 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
Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financialreporting including the possibility of collusion or improper management override ofcontrols material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.
Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls over financialreporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial controlover financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or thatthe degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In our opinion the Company has in all material respects an adequate internalfinancial controls system over financial reporting and such internal financial controlsover financial reporting were operating effectively as at March 31 2020 based on theinternal control over financial reporting criteria established by the Company consideringthe essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit ofInternal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute of CharteredAccountants of India.
