A company's internal financial control overfinancial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (i) pertain to themaintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect thetransactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (ii) provide reasonableassurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of Standalonefinancial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and thatreceipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance withauthorisations of management and directors of the company; and (iii) provide reasonableassurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorised acquisition use ordisposition of the company's assets that could have a material effect on the Standalonefinancial statements.
Limitations of internal financial controls over financial reporting
Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financialreporting including the possibility of collusion or improper management of override ofcontrols material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls over financialreporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial controlover financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or thatthe degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In our opinion and according to the information and explanations given to us theCompany has in all material respects an adequate internal financial control system overfinancial reporting and such internal financial controls over financial reporting wereoperating effectively as at March 31 2022 based on the internal control over financialreporting criteria established by the Company considering the essential components ofinternal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls OverFinancial Reporting issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India.
