| ||We refer to the standalone financial statement's accounting principles on revenue recognition and disclosure in the note no. 17 related to turnover. ||We performed the following procedures in relation to accuracy of revenue recognized and accrued: |
| ||We identified revenue recognition as a key audit matter because the Company and its external stakeholders focus on revenue as a key performance indicator. The revenue recognition occurs at a point in time when the control of goods is transferred to the customer according to the delivery terms. || Assessed the Company's revenue recognition accounting policies. Understood evaluated and tested the key controls. |

| ||The company has entered into several transactions with related parties during the year 2018-2019. We identified related party transactions as a key audit matter because of risks with respect tn completeness of disclosures made in the financial statements; non-compliance with statutory regulations governing related party relationships such as the Companies Act 2013 and SEBI Regulations and the judgment involved in assessing whether transactions with related parties are undertaken at arm's length. || We carried out an assessment of the key controls to identify and disclose related party relationships and transactions in accordance with the relevant accounting standard. |

| ||Enquiries are in progress at various stages which requires significant management estimates to specify the possible outcome.

| || || Performed substantive procedures on the underlying calculations supporting the provisions recorded. We ensured that Provisions were determined based on the best estimate required to settle the obligation at the reporting date.

Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company's financialreporting process.
Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the 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 skepticism throughout the audit. We also:
1 Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the standalone financialstatements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsiveto those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide abasis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting fromfraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusionforgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internal control.
2. Obtain an understanding of internal controls relevant to the audit in order todesign audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3)0)of the Companies Act 2013 we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whetherthe Company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operatingeffectiveness of such controls.

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 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.
5. 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.
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.

We have audited the internal financial controls over financial reporting of AvonMoldplast Limited ("the company") as of 31 March 2019 in conjunction with ouraudit of the standalone financial statements of the Company for the year ended on thatdate.
Management's Responsibility for Internal Financial Controls
The Company's management is responsible for establishing and maintaining internalfinancial controls based on the internal control over financial reporting criteriaestablished by the company considering the essential components of internal control statedin the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reportingissued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. These responsibilities includethe design implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls thatwere operating effectively for ensuring the orderly and efficient conduct of its businessincluding adherence to company's policies the safeguarding of its assets the preventionand detection of frauds and errors the accuracy and completeness of the accountingrecords and the timely preparation of reliable financial information as required underthe Companies Act 2013.
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's internal financialcontrols over financial reporting based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordancewith the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting(the "Guidance Note") and the Standards on Auditing to the extent applicable toan audit of internal financial controls both issued by the Institute of CharteredAccountants of India. Those Standards and the Guidance Note require that we comply withethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance aboutwhether adequate internal financial controls over financial reporting was established andmaintained and if such controls operated effectively 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 over financial reporting includedobtaining an understanding of internal financial controls over financial reportingassessing the risk that a material weakness exists and testing and evaluating the designand operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. The proceduresselected depend on the auditor's judgment including the assessment of the risks ofmaterial misstatement of the financial statements whether due to fraud or error.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our qualified audit opinion on the Company's internal financialcontrols system over financial reporting.
Meaning of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting
A company's internal financial controls over financial reporting is a process designedto provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and thepreparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generallyaccepted accounting principles. A company's internal financial control over financialreporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance ofrecords that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions anddispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance thattransactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements inaccordance with generally accepted accounting principles and that receipts andexpenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations ofmanagement and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regardingprevention or timely detection of unauthorised acquisition use or disposition of thecompany's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Inherent 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 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 years are subject to the risk that the internal financial control overfinancial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or that thedegree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate
According to the information and explanations given to us and based on our audit thefollowing material weaknesses have been identified in the operating effectiveness of theCompany's internal financial controls over financial reporting as at March 31 2019:
a) . The Company's internal financial controls over credit note regarding discount werenot operating effectively which could potentially result in the Company's performance.
b) . The company did not have appropriate internal control regarding creating charge onfixed assets.
c) . The title deeds of the immovable property are held in the name of Avon MoldplastPrivate
Limited and the company has converged to Public Company but the title deeds of theimmovable property are still in the name of Avon Moldplast Private Limited.
A 'material weakness' is a deficiency or a combination of deficiencies in internalfinancial control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibilitythat a material misstatement of the company's annual or interim financial statements willnot be prevented or detected on a timely basis.
In our opinion except for the possible effects of the material weaknesses describedabove on the achievement of the objectives of the control criteria the Company hasmaintained in all material respects adequate internal financial controls over financialreporting and such internal financial controls over financial reporting were operatingeffectively as of March 31 2019 based on the internal control over financial reportingcriteria established by the Company considering the essential components of internalcontrol stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls Over FinancialReporting issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India.
We have considered the material weaknesses identified and reported above in determiningthe nature timing and extent of audit tests applied in our audit of the March 31 2019standalone financial statements of the Company and these material weaknesses does notaffect our opinion on the standalone financial statements of the Company.
