We have determined the matters described below to be the key audit mattersto be communicated in our report.

Key Audit Matter How our audit addressed the Key Audit Matter
1. Valuation of Investments in Unquoted Equity Shares of Andhra Pradesh Gas Power Corporation Limited (APGPCL)
The company is a shareholder of Andhra Pradesh Gas Power Corporation Limited. Investments in the entity are measured at fair value through income approach. We assessed the management's approach to valuation for these investments by performing the following procedures:
The fair value of investments as on 31st March 2019 is Rs.16020.79 lakhs. • Understood and evaluated the procedure followed by the management in calculation of savings in power cost.
The management applies significant judgements and estimations in arriving at the fair value of investments considering the factors such as units of power consumption cost of government power and savings per unit to be constant for every year and assuming the investments to be made at cost of equity. • We have obtained and tested evidence to support the management's assessment regarding the fair value of investment.
As per the MOU between APGPCL and its share- holders each shareholder is entitled to receive power generated in proportion to its shareholding at cost of Key Audit Matter generation plus 20% of its overheads which is sub- stantially lower than the price charged by DISCOMs. • We have reviewed various judgements and estimates considered by management in valuation of investment.
How our audit addressed the Key Audit Matter Conclusion: Based on the above procedures per- formed the management's determination of fair value of investment is reasonable as per principles of Ind
We have considered this as a key audit matter be- cause any changes in the above factors in the subse- quent financial years shall have a significant financial impact AS

• Inspecting demand notices received from and evaluating the company's response to those mat- ters.
Given the uncertainty in recovering the refund from APGPCL and application of significant judgements in this area in terms of eventual outcomes of litigations we determined this to be a key audit matter.

The said reports are expected to be madeavailable to us after the date of this audit report.

Our opinion on the standalone financial statements does not cover the other informationand we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the standalone financial statements our responsibilityis to read the other informa- tion and in doing so consider whether the otherinformation is materially inconsistent with the standalone finan- cial statements or ourknowledge obtained during the course of our audit or otherwise appears to be materiallymisstated.

When we read the given reports if we conclude that there is a material misstatementtherein we are required to communicate the matter to those charged with governance.

Responsibilities of Management and Those Charged with Governance for the StandaloneFinancial State- ments

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in Section134(5) of the Companies Act 2013 ("the Act") with respect to the preparation ofthese standalone Ind AS financial statements that give a true and fair view of thefinancial position financial performance including other comprehensive income cash flowsand changes in equity of the Company in accordance with the Indian Accounting Standards(Ind AS) prescribed under Section 133 of the Companies Act 2013 read with relevant rulesissued there under and other accounting principles generally accepted in India.

In preparing the financial statements the Board of Directors is responsible forassessing the company's ability to continue as a going concern disclosing as applicablematters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unlessthe Board of Directors either intends to liquidate the company or to cease operations orhas no realistic alternative but to do so.

The Board of Directors are responsible for overseeing the Company's financial reportingprocess.

Auditor's Responsibility for the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalonefinancial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraudor error and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assuranceis a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordancewith SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements canarise from fraud or error and are considered material if individually or in theaggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of userstaken on the basis of these Standalone financial statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintain professional skep-

ticism throughout the audit. We also:

• . Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the standalonefinancial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit proceduresresponsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatementresulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involvecollusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internalcontrol.

• . Obtain an understanding of internal financial controls relevant to the auditin order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Undersection 143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion onwhether the Company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and theoperating effectiveness of such controls.

• . Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and thereasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.

• Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basisof accounting 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 standalone financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify ouropinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of ourauditor's report. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease tocontinue as a going concern.

Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the standalone financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the standalone financial statementsrepresent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.

Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the standalone financial statementsthat individually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may be influenced. We considerquantitative materiality and qualitative factors in (i) planning the scope of our auditwork and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effect of anyidentified misstatements in the financial statements.

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 standalone financial statementsof the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these mattersin our auditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about thematter or when 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.

Those Standards and the Guidance Note requirethat we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtainreasonable assurance about whether adequate internal financial controls with reference tothe financial statements was established and maintained and if such controls operatedeffectively in all material respects.

Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacy ofthe internal financial controls system over financial reporting and their operatingeffectiveness. Our audit of internal financial controls with reference to the financialstatements included obtaining an understanding of internal financial controls withreference to the financial statements assessing the risk that a material weakness existsand testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal controlbased on the assessed risk.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls with reference to Financial Statements

ance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financialstatements for external pur- poses in accordance with generally accepted accountingprinciples. A company's internal financial control over financial reporting includes thosepolicies and procedures that

(1) pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately andfairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company;

(3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection ofunauthorized acquisition use or disposition of the company's assets that could have amaterial effect on the financial statements.

Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls with reference to FinancialStatements

Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls with reference tothe financial statements including the possibility of collusion or improper managementoverride of controls material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not bedetected. Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls withreference to the financial statements to future periods are subject to the risk that theinternal financial control over financial reporting may become inadequate because ofchanges in conditions or that the degree of compliance with the policies or proceduresmay deteriorate.

Opinion
