The Statement on Impact of Audit Qualifications as stipulated in regulation 33(3)(d) along with the management response to the same is as below:

Audit Qualification (each Audit Qualification separately)

1. Audit Qualification: The Company has incurred losses over the years resulting in negative net worth and negative working capital. The default in payment of dues to banks and financial institutions and creditors etc. are the identified events that, individually or collectively, may cast significant doubt on the Companys ability to continue as a going concern. The Statement does not adequately disclose this fact.

The Company has stepped back / separated from certain projects under development and has transferred those projects to other developers/ landowners through the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) or Business Transfer Agreement (BTA). Although these transactions have reduced the liability of the Company to banks and financial institutions, the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern continues to remain uncertain in view of the negative net worth.

As the Company has not recognized this fact and has prepared the standalone financial statements on a going concern assumption basis without carrying out any adjustments, in our opinion, the Statement may not give a true and fair view. (Refer to Note 9 of the Statement).

Response : Comprehensive approaches focused on identifying root causes with strategical planning have been put in place to revive with potential business diversification. This was already a part of the previous year AGM agenda too. Efforts are being made to close the borrowings through OTS and it is in final stages of conclusion and closure. Considering these the Management is of the view the impact of going concern would not be of concern anymore in future.

2. Audit Qualification: Year-end balance confirmation in respect of trade receivables, trade payables, vendor advances, advances from customers and other advances have not been provided for our verification and record for all the parties. In the absence of such confirmation, we are unable to ascertain any consequential effect of the above to the financial results for the year. As explained, necessary mails have been sent to some of the parties for confirmation. However, no replies have been received in this regard except in few cases.

Response : Balance confirmation letters have been sent to the vendors & customers on RPAD basis for the samples selected by the Audit team. However from the books of accounts point of view all controls are in place to ensure that the balances of customers and vendors which are a part of financial statements are stated correct.

3. Audit Qualification: As per the records of the Company, information and explanations provided to us, the Company has been irregular in depositing the undisputed statutory dues, including provident fund, employees state insurance, income- tax, value-added tax, Goods and Services tax, cess, etc.

The Company also has a receivable balance of Rs. 768 Lakh and a payable balance of Rs. 177 Lakh (excluding interest and disputed VAT liability under appeal) from/ to various government authorities. Due to such statutory non-compliance, we are unable to comment on the actual recoverability and payment of the dues against such balances.

Response : The Company has paid the outstanding dues to certain extent during the previous year and is hopeful of liquidation of substantial amount of statutory liabilities in the current year.

4. Audit Qualification: Necessary documents for imprest transactions taken place during the financial year 2023-24 are not made available for our verification. In the absence of adequate audit evidence, we are unable to ascertain any consequential effect of the above to the financial results for the year.

Response : Amounts are already reflecting in books of accounts.

5. Audit Qualification: Inventories amounting to Rs 1,450 Lakh (Net of "Payable to land owner for land under JDA") has not been tested impairment for ascertaining the realizable value as on 31st March, 2024. To the extent of any possible diminution of value not accounted for, the standalone financial results may not give a true and fair view as per the requirement of Ind AS 2.

Response : The Company is confident of realisation on amounts in excess of carrying amount and hence no impairment has been provided in the books.

6. Audit Qualification: The Company has entered into One-time Settlements (OTS) with JCF ARC (assigned by YES Bank) and HDFC Limited as per which, the Company has to repay the amounts mentioned in the settlement letters in a time-bound manner. In the event the Company defaults on the mentioned timelines or any other payment terms, the said settlement approvals shall stand revoked.

On this basis, the Company has disclosed Rs. 8,507 Lakh under Current Borrowing (being the OTS outstanding balance of JCF ARC and HDFC) and Rs. 48,233 Lakh under Disputed Liability (being the difference between original loan and interest liability and OTS outstanding balance) as on 31st March, 2024. (Refer to Note 4 of the Statement)

However, the Company has defaulted on the timelines of the payment under OTS with respect to both the lenders. Subsequently, the Company has received a notice from JCF ARC revoking the above-mentioned OTS and called upon to repay outstanding dues along with applicable interest charges, costs, etc. with immediate effect.

As explained, the Company is in communication with the lenders for seeking an extension for the balance payment therefore has not booked any further liability on the basis of such demand from JCF ARC.

No information / document is made available for subsequent correspondence after the revocation in case of HDFC Limited.

Response : The One-time Settlements (OTS) process is still in progress and liability is already recorded in books of accounts.
