We have audited the attached Balance Sheet of The Scindia Steam Navigation Company Limited as at 31st March, 2011 and also the Profit and Loss Account and the Cash Flow Statement for the year 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 misstatements. 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 as amended by the Companies (Auditor's Report) (Amendment) Order, 2004 issued by the Central Government in terms of provisions of Section 227 (4A) 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.

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

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

b) In our opinion, proper books of account as required by law have been kept by the Company so far as appears from our examination of those books.

c) The Balance Sheet, Profit & Loss account and Cash Flow Statement dealt with by this report are in agreement with the Company's books of account.

d) In our opinion, the Balance Sheet, Profit and Loss Account and 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;

e) We are informed that in terms of clarification issued by Ministry of Finance, Justice and Company Affairs, Department of Company Affairs, Government of India vide General circular No.8 dated 22nd March, 2002 , the directors of the Company are not subject to any disqualification under section 274(1 )(g) of the Companies Act, 1956, as their appointment is made by the Government of India;

f) The shipping operations of the company stand suspended. The company has continuously incurred losses and thereby net worth of the company has been totally eroded and a substantial loss is carried forward as at 31" March, 2011. The company has filed a petition with the High Court of Bombay on February 28, 2011 to wind up the company by Order of the court under the relevant provisions of the Companies Act, 1956. In view of these facts, the company will no longer be a 'Going Concern'. Despite this, the accounts of the company have been prepared on a 'Going Concern Basis' in the absence of adequate data and information for its compilation on an alternative basis. Consequently, no adjustments are made in accounts relating to the recoverability of recorded asset amounts and in respect of recorded liabilities and contingent liabilities that might devolve on the company. (Refer note no. 5 of notes forming part of accounts)

g) 77ie Company has granted a loan to Scindia Workshop Limited, the Subsidiary Company. Outstanding amount of such loan with accrued interest as at 31st March, 2011 is Rs.1707Lakhs (Previous year Rs.1938 Lakhs). The recoverability of this amount is, in our opinion, dependent on outcome of (he review application to be made before the Division Bench of the Higfi Court of Bombay by the Subsidiary for further enhancement of compensation for the land and buildings acquired by the Government of Maharashtra (Refer note no. 6 of notes forming part of accounts)

We further report that subject to f and g above, the effect of which could not be quantified, in our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the said accounts read together with the notes thereon give the information required by the Companies Act, 1956, in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India:
