Basis for Qualified 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.
a) Attention is invited to Note No.2 of 'Significant Accounting Policies &Notes to the Financial Statements' it was observed that lots of assets are shown in thebooks of accounts of the company under different assets head at its residual value.Further the remaining useful life of those machines was NIL but the assets are still inuse and are being installed in the factory and further no depreciation has been chargedby the company as they are shown at their residual value since Financial Year 2016-17.However as per Ind AS - 16 depreciation can be seized only if the asset is demortized/sale or is held for sale. Moreover as per IND AS-16 the company should have torevalue these assets and charge depreciation on the revalued amount. While discussing thisissue with the management it was told to us that such machines could not be revalued byany valuation officer as these machines were bought from Italy with the name of InnocentiMachines and the size of these machines is very heavy.
