Key Audit Matters: -
Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the financial statements of the current year. These matterswere addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a whole and informing our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters.
We have determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to becommunicated in our report:
|Key Audit Matters ||How the matter was addressed in our audit |
|Regulatory - Litigations/ Contingencies and claims ||Our procedures included: |
|* The Company is exposed to a variety of different Central and State/Local laws regulations and interpretations thereof. In this regulatory environment there is an inherent risk of litigations and claims. ||* Review the outstanding litigations against the Company for consistency with the previous years. Enquire and obtain explanations for movement during the year. |
|Key Audit Matters ||How the matter was addressed in our audit |
|* Consequently provisions and contingent liability disclosures may arise from direct and indirect tax proceedings legal proceedings including regulatory and other government/department proceedings as well as investigations by authorities and commercial claims. ||* Reading the latest correspondence between the Company and the various tax/legal authorities and review of correspondence with / legal opinions obtained by the management from external legal advisors where applicable for significant matters. |
|* As at 31 March 2019 the Company's contingent liabilities were Rs. 784.54 lacs (refer note no. 21 to the standalone Ind AS financial statements). ||* Discussing the status of significant litigation with the Company's Legal Counsel and other senior management personnel and assessing their responses. |
|* Management applies significant judgement in estimating the likelihood of the future outcome in each case when considering whether and how much to provide or in determining the required disclosure for the potential exposure of each matter. This is due to the highly complex nature and magnitude of the legal matters involved along with the fact that resolution of tax and legal proceedings may span over multiple years and may involve protracted negotiation or litigation. ||* With respect to tax matters involving our tax specialists and discussing with the Company's officers and Legal Counsel their views and strategies on significant cases as well as the related technical grounds relating to their conclusions based on applicable tax laws. |

Auditor's Responsibility: -
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financialstatements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or errorand to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a highlevel of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAswill always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise fromfraud or error and are considered material if individually or in the aggregate theycould reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on thebasis of these financial statements.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:
Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statementswhether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsive to thoserisks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis forour opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud ishigher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusion forgeryintentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internal control.
Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to designaudit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under Section 143(3)(i) of theAct we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the company hasadequate internal financial controls with reference to financial statements in place andthe operating effectiveness of such controls.
Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness ofaccounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.
Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basis ofaccounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertaintyexists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company'sability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty existswe are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures inthe financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion.Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor'sreport. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue asa going concern.
Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the financial statementsincluding the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent the underlyingtransactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.
We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among other matters theplanned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings including anysignificant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit.
We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we have compliedwith relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with themall relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on ourindependence and where applicable related safeguards.
From the matters communicated with those charged with governance we determine thosematters that were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements of thecurrent period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in ourauditors' report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter orwhen in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not becommunicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonablybe expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
