We have audited the attached Balance Sheet of BELL CERAMICS LTD, as at 31st December, 2010, the Profit and Loss Account and also the Cash Flow Statement for the period ended on that date annexed thereto. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in India. Those Standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

As required by the Companies (Auditor's Report) Order, 2003 issued by the Central Government of India in terms of sub - section (4A) of Section 227 of the Companies Act, 1956, we enclose in the Annexure a statement on the matters specified in Paragraphs 4 and 5 of the said Order to the extent applicable to the Company.

Further to our comments in the Annexure referred to above, we report that:

(i) We have obtained all the information and explanations, which to best of our knowledge and belief were necessary for the purposes of our audit;

(iv) In our opinion, the Balance Sheet, the Profit and Loss Account and also the Cash Flow Statement dealt with by this report comply with the accounting standards referred to in sub-section (3C) of Section 211 of the Companies Act, 1956;

(v) The Company had filed an application during the previous year with the Central Government for seeking approval for removal of disqualification of certain Directors for subsequent appointments / reappointments that occurred on 1.04.2008 due to default in repayment of then existing debentures, which had however, during earlier year, been restructured into loan by the debenture holder(s) with effect from 1.04.2008 itself.
