We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) specifiedunder section 143(10) of the Companies Act 2013. Our responsibilities under thoseStandards are further described in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of theFinancial Statements section of our report.

We believe that the audit evidence we haveobtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements for the financialyear ended 31st March 2019. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit ofthe standalone Ind AS financial statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereonand we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters. For each matter below ourdescription of how our audit addressed the matter is provided in that context.

We have determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to becommunicated in our report. We have fulfilled the responsibilities described in theAuditor's responsibilities for the audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statementssection of our report including in relation to these matters. Accordingly our auditincluded the performance of procedures designed to respond to our assessment of the risksof material misstatement of the standalone Ind AS financial statements. The results of ouraudit procedures including the procedures performed to address the matters below providethe basis for our audit opinion on the accompanying standalone Ind AS financialstatements.

Key Audit matters How our audit addressed the key audit matter
(A) Transition to Ind AS from Indian GAAP
The standalone financial statements of the Company for the year ended March 31 2019 have been prepared in accordance with Ind AS. For the purposes of transition to Ind AS the Company has followed the guidance prescribed in Ind AS 101 ‘First-Time Adoption of Indian Accounting Standards' with April 01 2017 as the transition date and IGAAP as the previous GAAP. The transition to Ind AS has resulted in changes in the presentation of the financial statements disclosures in the notes thereto and accounting policies and principles.
Our audit procedures included:
The transition to Ind AS has resulted in material changes in: • Evaluating the accounting interpretations for compliance with Ind AS and testing the adjustments and disclosures made on transition.
• Classification and measurement of financial assets and financial liabilities • The accounting policies reflected in the comparative information are consistent with those applied in the current period or if there have been changes in accounting policies whether those changes have been properly accounted for and adequately presented and disclosed.
• Measurement of loan losses (expected credit losses) • Assessed that the areas of significant estimates and management judgment are in line with principles under Ind AS.

(B) Impairment of financial assets (expected credit losses)

Ind AS 109 requires the Company to recognise impairment loss allowance towards its financial assets (designated at amortised cost and fair value through other comprehensive income) using the expected credit loss (ECL) approach. Such ECL allowance is required to be measured considering the guiding principles of Ind AS 109 including: • We read and assessed the Company's Accounting policies for impairment of financial assets and their compliance with Ind AS 109.
• unbiased probability weighted outcome under various scenarios; • We evaluated the reasonableness of the Management estimates by understanding the process of ECL estimation.
• time value of money; • Tested the ECL model including assumptions and underlying computation.
• impact arising from forward looking macro-economic factors and; • Assessed the floor/minimum rates of provisioning applied by the Company for loan products with inadequate historical defaults.
• availability of reasonable and supportable information without undue costs. • Audited disclosures included in the Ind AS financial statements in respect of expected credit losses.
Applying these principles involves significant estimation in various aspects such as:
• grouping of borrowers based on homogeneity by using appropriate statistical techniques;
• staging of loans and estimation of behavioral life;
• determining macro-economic factors impacting credit quality of receivables;
• estimation of losses for loan products with no/minimal historical defaults. Considering the significance of such allowance to the overall financial statements and the degree of estimation involved in computation of expected credit losses this area is considered as a key audit matter

Management's Responsibility for the Standalone Financial Statements

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) cashflows and changes in equity of the Company in accordance with the accounting principlesgenerally accepted in India including the accounting Standards specified under section133 of the Act. This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accountingrecords in accordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding of the assets of theCompany and for preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection andapplication of appropriate accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that arereasonable and prudent; and design implementation and maintenance of adequate internalfinancial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy andcompleteness of the accounting records relevant to the preparation and presentation ofthe financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from materialmisstatement whether due to fraud or error. In preparing the financial statementsmanagement is responsible for assessing the Company's ability to continue as a goingconcern disclosing as applicable matters related to going concern and using the goingconcern basis of accounting unless management either intends to liquidate the Company orto cease operations or has no realistic alternative but to do so.

The Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company's financialreporting process.

Auditor's Responsibility

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements Our objectives areto obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements as a whole are freefrom material misstatement whether due to fraud or error and to issue an auditor'sreport that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance butis not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAs will always detect amaterial misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and areconsidered material if individually or in the aggregate they could reasonably beexpected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of thesefinancial statements.

• Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the 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.

• Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order todesign audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3)(i)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.

• Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonablenessof 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 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 financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent theunderlying transactions 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 are required todetermine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the financialstatements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describethese matters in our auditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosureabout the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a mattershould not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing sowould reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.

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 Accountant of India (‘ICAI').

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 Not on Audit of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting(the ‘Guidance Note') and the Standards on Auditing issued by ICAI and deemed to beprescribed under Section 143(10) of the Companies Act2013 to the extent applicable to anaudit of internal financial controls both applicable to an audit of Internal FinancialControls and both issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. ThoseStandards and the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethical requirements and planand perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether adequate internalfinancial controls over financial reporting were established and maintained and if suchcontrols 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 audit opinion on the Company's internal financial controls systemover financial reporting.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting

A company's internal financial control 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 authorization of theManagement and directors of the Company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regardingprevention or timely detection of unauthorized 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 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.

Qualified Opinion

According to the information and explanations given to us and based on our audit thefollowing material weaknesses have been identified as at March 31 2019.

a) The Company did not have an appropriate internal control system for granting Loans.Demand and other loans given are governed by the Board policies. Considering the closemonitoring of Board no appraisal renewal Policies Procedure Committee or documentshave been prescribed and executed.

b) The Company's internal control system is not commensurate to the size and scale ofoperation over purchase and sale of shares and inventory and for expenses incurred.

A ‘material weaknesses' is a deficiency or a combination of deficiencies ininternal financial control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonablepossibility that a material misstatement of the company's annual or interim financialstatements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

In our opinion except for the effects / possible effects of the material weaknessesdescribed above on the achievement of the objectives of the control criteria the Companyhas maintained in all material respects adequate internal financial controls overfinancial reporting and such internal financial controls over financial reporting wereoperating effectively as of March 31 2019 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 Chartered Accountants of India.
