No. 000050N/ N500045) were appointed as Statutory Auditors of the Company for a term of five consecutive years, to hold office from the conclusion of the 11th Annual General Meeting held on 1st September 2015 till the conclusion of 16th Annual General Meeting to be held in Calendar year 2020 subject to annual ratification by the members at every Annual General Meeting of the company on such remuneration as may be decided by the Audit Committee of the Board.

The auditor have also confirmed that they have subjected themselves to the peer review process of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) and holds a valid certificate issued by the Peer Review Board of the ICAI.

Report of Statutory Auditors

Auditors Qualification and Managements Representation thereon are as follows:

The Company has recognized net income amounting to Rs.2,727.21 Lakhs in the year ended 31st March, 2018 on account of compensation received pursuant to Settlement Agreement dated 28th March, 2017, instead of recognizing the same in the year ended 31st March, 2017. This constitutes a material departure from the India Accounting Standards (Ind AS) referred to in section 133 of the Companies Act, 2013. Consequently, the exceptional income for the year ended 31st March, 2018 is over stated and the exceptional income for the year ended 31st March, 2017 is understated by Rs.2727.21 lakhs. Had the company followed the correct accounting, the net profit after tax for the year ended 31st March, 2018 would have been reduced by Rs.2727.21 lakhs and increased by the same amount for the year ended 31st March, 2017, the carrying amount of other current assets as at the previous year ended 31st March, 2017 would have increased by Rs.2,475 Lakhs, deferred tax assets (net) as at the previous year ended 31st March, 2017 would have been reduced by 843.65 lakhs as at the previous year ended 31st March, 2017 and other equity would have increased by C1883.56 lakhs as at the previous year ended 31st March, 2017. This was a matter of qualification in the previous year as well.

Managements Representation:

The amounts received from P&G on account of Settlement should be considered and accounted for as Income only in 2017-18 as the Arbitral Tribunal has given its final Award on 03.04.2017 and two SLPs from the Supreme court were withdrawn on 06.04.2017 & 12.04.2017. the applicable TDS on the respective settlement amounts have been deducted and deposited during the FY 2017-18 only.

One of the conditions in the settlement agreement is pending. Though, it was not a condition precedent to the payment of the settlement amount, however in the terms of the agreement and thus unless not concluded, the Settlement Agreement can't be termed as completed as the material conditions precedent were dependent on the authorities which were not within the control of the company. Thus, it was inappropriate in view of the management, to recognize the income in FY 2016-17. Accordingly, net compensation of the settlement amounting to Rs.2727.21 lakhs has been accounted as income during the year ended 31st March, 2018 and as shown under exceptional items.
