4. Basis for Qualified Opinion
A. The Company has made long term investments in Forever Precious Diamonds andJewellery Ltd. (Forever) amounting to Rs. 1411710802 thereby resulting in it holding a49 % stake in the equity of that company. The said investments continue to be valued atcost. As stated in Note No. 8 in the view of the management provision for diminution invalue of investments as per the requirements of Ind-AS 28 - Investments in Associates andJoint Ventures is not considered necessary and hence not made. We have been provided withthe financial statements of Forever for the year ended 31stMarch 2017. We haveobserved that there are no significant business operations in Forever. Further theauditors of Forever have qualified the financial statements and termed the company as anon-going concern. In view of the above the Company should have provided the diminution invalue of investments amounting to Rs. 1411710801. Accordingly the loss for the yearhave been understated and investments overstated by Rs. 1411710801.
B. The company has also made long term investment in Peakok Jewellery Limited amountingRs.5012750/- at the average rate of Rs.286.44/- per share. As per the balance sheet as at31st March 2016 the book value of the shares of the company is Rs.110.78/- pershare. In the view of the management provision for diminution in value of investments asper the requirements of Ind-AS 28 - Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures is notconsidered necessary and hence not made. In view of the above the Company should haveprovided the diminution in value of investments amounting to Rs.3075100/-. Accordinglythe loss for the year have been understated and investments overstated by Rs.3075100/-.
5. Basis for Disclaimer of Opinion
A. In respect of Trade Receivables amounting to Rs. 56080930760/- (Valued atexchange rate as on 31/03/2017 under IndAS) the auditors have not received anyconfirmations from the overseas parties. The company has filed legal suit against itsdefaulting overseas customers for non-payment of its export bills at Sharjah FederalCourt Sharjah. The court has appointed an expert to look into the affairs of thecompanies based in Dubai/ Sharjah. The Court has confirmed the debts payable to theCompany
and ordered the overseas customer to pay along with interest @5% p.a. However thecopies of the orders are not provided for verification. The overseas customers had filedan appeal against the judgment of the Sharjah Federal Court and the Sharjah FederalAppellate Court has passed order in favour of the Company and now the matter is pendingfor 1 case with the Sharjah Federal Appellate Court and 2 case with Sharjah Supreme courtand their judgments are awaited. . During the year under review state bank of Mauritiushas entered in the One Time Settlement agreement with the company and overseas Customersof the company for settlement of its loan. Accordingly the Overseas customers agreed topay US$ 1050833/- against the total outstanding bill of US$ 8241831.11/-. The balanceamount receivable (Rs. 488352906/-) from overseas customers has been considered asimpaired charged to profit and loss in FY 2016-2017. As per Ind-As - 109 (FinancialInstruments) provides practical expedient to use a provision matrix to estimate ExpectedCredit Loss for trade receivables.
In view of these court orders pending legal proceedings we are unable to comment ontime frame of the realisability of the debts through provision matrix where allsignificant trade receivables past due by more than a year and any provision to be madefor unrealisability in the remaining carrying amounts of these balances and theconsequential impact on the financial statements. (Refer Note 9 11 and Note 34 to thefinancial statements)
B. As per Ind-AS -16(Property Plant and Equipment) the depreciable amount of atangible fixed asset should be allocated on a systematic basis over its useful life. Thedepreciation method should reflect the pattern in which the asset's future economicbenefits are expected to be consumed by the entity. Further standard requires thedepreciation method applied to an asset residual value and useful life shall be reviewedat least at each financial year-end. Based on technical evaluation the managementbelieves that written down method of depreciation method and the useful lives asprescribed under Part C of Schedule II of the Companies Act 2013 are best representativefuture economic benefits associated with tangible fixed assets. In absence of thetechnical report we are unable to comment on reasonability of useful and method ofdepreciation and the consequential impact on the financial statements. (Refer note 6& 7)
C. As mentioned in Note No 1 regarding preparation of accounts on a Going Concern basisand the reasons stated therein and Note No.34 of the financial statements detailing thedevelopments that have happened in the last 4 years the Company's operating results havebeen materially affected due to various factors including non availability of finance inview of the consortium of bankers recalling the financial facilities granted. These eventscast significant doubts on the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern sincethe business has stopped. The appropriateness of the going concern assumption is dependenton the Company's ability to raise adequate finance from alternate means and/or recoveriesfrom overseas debtors to meet its short term and long term obligations as well as toestablish consistent business operations.
In absence of any convincing audit evidences non recovery of trade receivables on duedate non-payment of liabilities including statutory dues financial difficulties faced bythe company due to recalling of bank finance facilities and in view of multipleuncertainties as stated above we are unable to determine the possible effects on thefinancial statements. We are also unable to conclude on the ability of the company tocarry on as a going concern.
D. The Reserve Bank of India issued notice to the Company under FEMA fornon-realization of foreign exchange from exports made during 2012-13 to overseas customersof Rs.636.14 crore.

Most of the banks have not charged interest on theCompany's borrowings/loans while some banks have been charging interest at higher rates.The board of directors of the Company in its meeting held on 30th May 2015 haddecided not to provide Interest. Now the directors in its meeting dated 29thMay 2017 have decided to provide for Interest to comply with Ind-AS.
