We have audited the accompanying Financial Statements of ANKIT METAL & POWER LIMITED ("the Company"), which comprise the Balance Sheet as at 31st March, 2019, the Statement of Profit and Loss (including Other Comprehensive Income), the Statement of Changes in Equity and the Statement of Cash Flows for the year then ended and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information (hereinafter referred to as "the Financial Statements").
In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the possible effect of matter described in the basis for qualified opinion section of our report, the aforesaid Financial Statements give the information required by the Companies Act, 2013 (the Act") in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the Indian Accounting Standards prescribed under Section 133 of the Act read with the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, 2015 as amended ("Ind AS") and other accounting principles accepted in India, of the state of affairs of the Company as at 31st March, 2019 and the loss including Other Comprehensive Income, the Statement of Changes in Equity and its Cash Flow Statement for the year ended on that date.
Basis for Qualified Opinion
We draw your attention to note no. 28 of the accompanying Financial Statements regarding non provision of interest expense on the borrowings of the Company amounting to र 12,297.85 Lacs for the year ended 31st March, 2019 (cumulative non provision of र 39,937.90 Lacs and penal interest and charges thereof (amount remaining unascertained) which is not in accordance with the requirements of Ind AS 23: Borrowing Costs read with Ind AS 109: Financial Instruments. During the period the Company has also reversed interest amounting to र 2,229.95 Lacs relating to earlier period.
Had the aforesaid interest expense been recognized, the finance cost for the year ended 31st March, 2019 would have been र 14,793.40 Lacs instead of reported amount of र 265.60 Lacs. The total expenses for the year ended 31st March, 2019 would have been र 64,673.50 Lacs instead of र 50,145.70 Lacs. The Net Loss after tax for the year ended 31st March, 2019 would have been र 23,754.30 Lacs instead of reported amount of र 9,226.50 Lacs. Total Comprehensive Loss for the year ended 31st March, 2019 would have been र 23,761.29 Lacs instead of reported amount of र 9,233.49 Lacs. Other equity as on 31st March, 2019 would have been र (1,12,341.08) Lacs instead of reported amount of र (72,403.18) Lacs and Other Current Financial Liability as on 31st March, 2019 would have been र 85,451.95 Lacs instead of reported amount of र 45,514.05 Lacs.
We conducted our audit of the Financial Statements in accordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) specified under section 143(10) of the Act. Our responsibilities under those Standards are further described in the Auditors Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with the Code of Ethics issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) together with the independence requirements that are relevant to our audit of the Financial Statements under the provisions of the Act and the Rules made thereunder, and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements and the ICAIs Code of Ethics. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our qualified opinion on the financial statements.
Material uncertainty relating to Going Concern
We draw your attention to note no. 29 of the Financial Statements regarding preparation of the Financial Statements on going concern basis, for the reason mentioned therein. The Company has accumulated losses during year ended 31st March, 2019. As on date the Companys current liabilities are substantially higher than its current assets and net worth has also been fully eroded. These conditions indicate the existence of a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt on the Companys ability to continue as going concern. The appropriateness of assumption of going concern is critically dependent upon the debt resolution of the Company which is under process, the Companys ability to raise requisite finance, generation of cash flows in future to meet its obligation and to earn profit in future.
Key Audit Matters
Key Audit Matters are those matters that, in our professional judgment, were of most significance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a whole, and in forming our opinion thereon, and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters.

In absence of information about the terms of assignments, the company is carrying the various credit facilities as appearing in the books and as per the previous terms with the respective banks. This may have consequential impact on the reported financials.
Our report is not modified in these matters.
Information other than the Financial Statements and Auditors Report thereon
The Companys Board of Directors is responsible for the preparation of the other information. The other information comprises the information included in the Companys Annual Return but does not include the Financial Statements and our Auditors report thereon.
Our opinion on the Financial Statements does not cover the other information and we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.
In connection with our audit of the Financial Statements, our responsibility is to read the other information and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the Financial Statements or our knowledge obtained during the course of our audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated.
If, based on the work we have performed, we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this other information, we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in this regard.
Responsibility of the Management for the Financial Statements
The Companys Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in section 134(5) of the Companies Act, 2013 ("the Act") with respect to the preparation of the Financial Statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position, financial performance including Other Comprehensive Income, the Statement of Changes in Equity and Cash Flow Statement in accordance with the Ind AS and other accounting principles generally accepted in India. This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Company and for preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate implementation and maintenance of accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and design, implementation and maintenance of adequate Internal Financial Controls, that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, relevant to the preparation and presentation of the Financial Statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.
In preparing the financial statements, management is responsible for assessing the Companys ability to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless management either intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations, or has no realistic alternative but to do so.
Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Companys financial reporting process.
Auditors Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the Financial Statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an Auditors Report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these Financial Statements.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs, we exercise professional judgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:
Identify and assess the risks of the material misstatement of the Financial Statement, whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error, as fraud may involve collusion, forgery, intentional omissions, misrepresentations, or the override of internal control.
Obtain an understanding of internal financial controls relevant to the audit in order to design 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 whether the Company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operating effectiveness of such controls.
Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by the management.
Conclude on the appropriateness of managements use of the going concern basis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained, whether a material uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Companys ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists, we are required to draw attention in our auditors report to the related disclosures in the 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 Auditors report. However, future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern.
Evaluate the overall presentation, structure and content of the Financial Statements, including the disclosures, and whether the Financial Statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.
Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the Standalone Financial Statements that, individually or in aggregate, makes it probable that the economic decisions of a reasonably knowledgeable user of the Financial Statements may be influenced. We consider quantitative materiality and qualitative factors in (i) planning the scope of our audit work and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effect of any identified misstatements in the Financial Statements.
We communicate with those charged with governance regarding, among other matters, the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings, including any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit.
Independent Auditors Report
We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we have complied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence, and to communicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on our independence, and where applicable, related safeguards.
From the matters communicated with those charged with governance, we determine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the Financial Statements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in our auditors report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter or when, in extremely rare circumstances, we determine that a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
