Basis for Disclaimer of Opinion

A. In respect of trade receivables, which form a significant amount of the Companys assets, amounting to Rs. 76,30,861 the auditors have not received any confirmation of balances. The management has obtained confirmation of balances from the respective parties. The amounts have been outstanding for a considerable period of time taking into account the prevailing trade practice in respect of the Companys business. During the year the company has written off an amount of Rs. 3,92,61,338 receivable from Bombay Diamonds Company Private Limited as the company has conveyed its inability to pay any further amount. In view of the above we are unable to comment on the realisability of the debts, and any provision to be made for unrealisability in the carrying amounts of these balances and on the consequential impact on the financial statements.

The defaulting companies have assured of payments during the coming financial year as the situation improves. As far as the other company is concerned they have categorically replied that they are not in a position to make any further payments against their outstandings. Hence the management felt it prudent not to carry these balances in the books of account.

B The company has made long term investments in Forever Diamonds Pvt Ltd. and J R Diamonds Pvt Ltd amounting to Rs.321,800. The said investments continue to be valued at cost. In the absence of audited financial statements of the above mentioned companies we are unable to comment on the carrying costs of such investments and the provision for diminution in their value. We are unable to comment on the impact of provision for diminution in value of the investments on the financial statements The company made investments and valued them at costs since these are not very old investments. It is too premature to write off these investments.

C In view of what is stated above regarding recoverability of trade receivables and resultant write offs which form a significant amount of the Companys assets and the impact it could have on the Companys financials, we are unable to conclude on the ability of the company to carry on as a going concern.

As the customers indicated their willingness to make payments of the outstanding at the earliest as and their situation improves.
