AUDITORS’ REPORT

Report on the Financial Statements


We have audited the accompanying financial statements of NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF DESIGN (“the Institute”)
which comprise the Balance Sheet as on 31 March, 2015, and the Income and Expenditure Account for the year then
ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements


Management is responsible for the preparation of these financial statements that give a true and fair view of
the financial position and financial performance of the Institute in accordance with the applicable Accounting
Standards. This responsibility includes the design, implementation and maintenance of internal control relevant to
the preparation and presentation of the financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material
misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor’s Responsibility
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our
audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Those
Standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable
assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial
statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of
material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments,
the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Institute’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial

ANNUAL ACCOUNTS statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. An audit also includes
evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made
by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

2014–15 We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit
opinion.

Format – I Prescribed under Bombay Public Trust Act Opinion


In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the financial
statements give a true and fair view in conformity with the Accounting principles generally accepted in India:
(a) in the case of the Balance Sheet, of the state of affairs of the Institute as on 31 March, 2015; and
(b) in the case of the Income and Expenditure Account, of the deficit for the year ended on that date.
