 Replies on the comments/ notes to accounts /Observations made by the

 Your directors noted for future guidance the observations of Statutory
 Auditors in the Auditors Report.
 Reply to Auditors Qualifications/ Notes to Accounts/ Observations
 Note No. 27.01 Regarding the Contingent Liabilities: The same will be
 taken into account when the liabilities get crystallized.
 Note No.27;06 Regarding managerial remuneration: Due to no
 profits/inadequacy of profits, remuneration paid to the executive
 directors resulted in excess of permissible limit as such, the company
 will take appropriate steps to obtain necessary approvals from the
 central government.
 Note No.27.10 read with paragraph No.f) iii) of the report of the
 Auditors regarding Confirmation of Balances: Without reciprocal action
 from the Debtors and Creditors and in the absence any dispute regarding
 their amounts, the Company has accounted for the amounts due from the
 debtors and due to the creditors as per its books of accounts. The
 Company is in the process of obtaining confirmation from the parties
 wherever possible. In the absence of any note or information contrary
 to the Balances shown by the Company in respect of Debtors and
 Creditors, no adverse inference can be drawn for any negative or
 variation impact on the profit and loss of the company and
 consequently, no provision for any uncertain or imaginary adverse
 variation can be made in the books of accounts of the Company. Some
 of the lenders have got the properties mortgaged to them transferred in
 their names and some out of those lenders gave an option to the Company
 to buy back the properties conveyed to them. So far, these lenders have
 not confirmed the amounts of loan if any adjusted by the transfer of
 properties, how the values and consideration have been arrived at, the
 reschedulement of loan, if any, or refund of excess over the liability
 etc., and in the absence of the same, recognition of the sale or the

 Note No.27.11 read with paragraph No. 4(f)(ii) of the report of the
 Auditors regarding restructuring of operations and Reinstatement of
 Assets and Liabilities: Consequent upon slowdown in the overall
 economy, downward trend in the industrial growth and additional costs
 in running the business and industry and failure in performance of the
 payment obligations by the parties against receivables or discharge of
 corresponding liabilities by them, the management felt it reasonable
 and expedient to review the policies with regard to the above and other
 core sectors of business and reinstate the assets and liabilities in
 line with the changed scenario. It is in this context, the management
 decided to reinstate the assets and liabilities as per the arrangement
 reached between the concerned parties, in the financial statements. As
 per the arrangement, the Company captured the value of precious
 intangible asset i.e., the Brands known as Deccan Chronicle and Andhra
 Bhoomi, for an agreed sum of Rs 2,905.32 Crores as against the value of
 around Rs.3,700.00 crores as arrived by the Valuation Consultant in his
 report. By virtue of the aforesaid review of policies and consequential
 reinstatement of assets and liabilities as per the arrangement, Rs.
 2,905.32 Crores representing the value of the Brands has now been shown
 an intangible asset under development against receivables with
 corresponding liability to the amount in the form of borrowings from
 various lenders. The Management after careful consideration feels that
 capturing of Brands will do well to the Company and enhances the
 enterprise value of your company. In addition, the Brands have been
 synonymous with the Company as its main business is associated with the
 same. In modern environment, Corporate value and earning power are
 decided and generated by both class of assets, often more by
 intangibles than tangibles and more so, in the news paper industry.
 Moreover, the objective of the management in the above process is to
 help a realistic assessment of company''s real economic value done at
 any given point of time. In view of these reasons and substantial
 information and inputs with statistical and mathematical support, the
 company and its management are quite confident that there would not be
 any shortfall requiring any provisioning or any impact on the loss
 reported for the year under subject. The parties are in the process of
 concluding the transfer of ownership over the brands to the Company to
 the extent of Rs 2,905.32 crores where only few technicalities are left
 and hence, these amounts are shown under the Head Intangible Assets
 under Development -Brand on the Assets side under Fixed Assets with
 corresponding liability in the form -of borrowings have been reinstated
 in the Balance Sheet.
 Note No.27.13:
 The Company''s operations of odyssey dealing in retail trading outlets
 in the products like books, publications, periodicals, toys,.
 Compact Disks and music CDs etc., has been severely affected due to
 heavy competition from the online merchandised sales and the same
 coupled with adverse market conditions, forced the company to scale
 down its operations and discontinue the sales outlets at various places
 in order to rationalize the business operations by reducing the losses.
 The Management feels that scaling down the Odyssey operations will
 arrest further losses on the above count of business. Hence a sum of
 Rs.65.91 Crores has been written off towards termination of lease
 deposits, assets, loans and advances etc and steps are initiated to
 recover some of the lease deposits and loans and advances due from
 outlet owners.
 The Company has been making serious efforts to resolve outstanding
 issues with banks, financial Institutions and NBFCs and creditors and
 is confident of resolving the issues by way of restructuring of the
 loan/interest accrued as per the scheme with the lenders/Creditors and
 the company is taking steps to defend the legal cases/winding up
 petitions filed by various creditors/lenders. None of the winding up
 petition was so far admitted. All the claims are contested and in few
 cases, the company raised counter claims too.
 Note No.27.15,27.16and 27.17:
 The Board of Directors has taken note of the observations of Auditors
 which are self explanatory in nature.
 The notes and remarks of Auditors are self-explanatory and therefore
 do not require any further clarifications.
 Reply to the qualification made by the Auditors under paragraph f )(i)
 of their Audit report as regards going Concern assumption: - The
 assets and liabilities are recorded on the basis that the entity will
 be able to realize its assets and discharge the liabilities in the
 normal course of business. Merely because, some commercial decisions of
 the Management did not yield the required results should not be
 considered as factor to doubt the going concern assumption. The main
 business of the Company is not affected by the adverse conditions
 reported by the Auditors in their report. The Company challenged the
 action of BCCI and raised the dispute as also, claimed
 compensation/damages for the loss caused by the actions of BCCI and
 presently, these matters are under Arbitration. There are receivables
 representing the share of central revenues due from BCCI and the same
 have not been remitted so far to the Company. The downward trend and
 slowdown in the economy resulted in losses to the Odyssey business.
 Hence the decision to scale down the operations on the above count has
 helped the company to curtail further losses and save it from being
 pushed into major crisis and irretrievable situation. Next issue is the
 winding petitions filed by some of the creditors. So far, none of the
 petition filed seeking to wind up the company was admitted as such, no
 adverse inferences can be drawn against the Going concern assumption.
 The Company is contesting all the cases. The management has been taking
 stock of the situation regularly and adjusting its priorities to tide
 over the difficulties. The company will be in a position to discharge
 its liabilities and continue the operations without any interruption.
 In view of these reasons the management is advised that there is no
 threat to the Going Concern status of the company
 Note 27.18 read with Paragraph No. 4 (f) (v) of the Audit report
 relating to non-disclosure of details as regards the principal overdue
 and interest etc., the same are awaited from the parties.  Some of the
 parties preferred legal routes and some others are reconciling the
 figures. The Company has all the data and once the confirmation is
 received from the parties, necessary details will be furnished.
 Rest of the observations of the Auditors is self explanatory and they
 are noted for guidance and compliance.
