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

Key Audit Matters:

Sl. No. Key Audit Matters Auditor's Response
a Accuracy of recognition measurement presentation and disclosures of revenues and other related balances in view of adoption of Ind AS 115 "Revenue from Contracts with Customers" (new revenue accounting standard): Principal Audit Procedures
The application of the new revenue accounting standard involves certain key judgements relating to identification of distinct performance obligations determination of transaction price of the identified performance obligations the appropriateness of the basis used to measure revenue recognised over a period. We assessed the Company's process to identify the impact of adoption of the new revenue accounting standard. Our audit approach consisted testing of the design and operating effectiveness of the internal controls and substantive testing as follows:
Additionally new revenue accounting standard contains disclosures which involves collation of information in respect of disaggregated revenue and periods over which the remaining performance obligations will be satisfied subsequent to the balance sheet date. o Evaluated the design of internal controls relating to implementation of the new revenue accounting standard.
o Selected a sample of continuing and new contracts and tested the operating effectiveness of the internal control relating to identification of the distinct performance obligations and determination of transaction price. We carried out a combination of procedures involving enquiry and observation reperformance and inspection of evidence in respect of operation of these controls.
Refer Note 30 to the Standalone Financial Statements o Selected a sample of continuing and new contracts and performed the following procedures:
• Read analysed and identified the distinct performance obligations in these contracts.
• Compared these performance obligations with that identified and recorded by the Company.
• Considered the terms of the contracts to determine the transaction price including any variable consideration to verify the transaction price used to compute revenue and to test the basis of estimation of the variable consideration.
• In respect of samples relating to metro contracts progress towards satisfaction of performance obligation used to compute recorded revenue was verified with actual cost incurred up to that stage with estimation. We also tested the access and change management controls relating to these systems.
• Sample of revenues disaggregated by type and service offerings was tested with the performance obligations specified in the underlying contracts.
• Performed analytical procedures for reasonableness of revenues disclosed by type and service offerings.
• We reviewed the collation of information from the budgeted information of the management used to prepare the disclosure relating to the periods over which the remaining performance obligations will be satisfied subsequent to the balance sheet date.
b Recoverability and assessment of Trade Receivables advances balances with government departments Principal Audit Procedures
The Company has net trade receivable (Note No.14) of Rs. 151037.35 lakhs after providing for impairment of Rs. 22509.24 lakhs and net Advances & balances with Government Departments (Note No. 18) of Rs. 23708.80 lakhs after providing for impairment of Rs. 9718.55 lakhs Trade receivables advances balances with government departments of the company comprise mainly receivables in relation to the manufacturing and sale of (i) Earth Moving equipment (ii) Rail & Metro Products (iii) Defence products (iv) spares and services (v) Advance to Vendors and (vi) Duties and taxes etc. We have performed the following procedures in relation to the recoverability of trade receivables:
o Tested the accuracy of aging of trade receivables advances balances with government departments at year end on a sample basis.
o Obtained a list of outstanding receivables and identified any debtors wherever there is delay in payment over the terms agreed.
o Assessed the recoverability of the unsettled receivables on a sample basis through our evaluation of management's assessment with reference to the credit profile of the customers historical payment pattern of customers and latest correspondence with customers and to consider if any additional provision should be made; and
These balances are recognised at their anticipated realisable value which is the original invoiced amount/payments less provision (estimated for) for non-realisable value. o Tested subsequent settlement of trade receivables after the balance sheet date on a sample basis if any.
Valuation of trade receivables advances and balances with government departments is a key audit matter in the audit due to the size of its holding and the high level of management judgement used in determining the impairment provision. We found the key judgements and assumptions used by management in the recoverability assessment of trade receivables to be supportable based on the available evidence.
We have drawn attention in Emphasis of Matters on trade receivables advances and balances with government departments which in our judgement are fundamental to the users' understanding of the financial statements.
C Disputes and potential litigations: Refer to Note 39.D.I.a.i. in the standalone financial statements Principal Audit Procedures
The Company is involved in legal proceedings on disputed tax demands. The company's management has assessed that the probability of success of the demand is Remote and accordingly has not provided for the disputed demands. In response to the risk of completeness of the disclosures and the completeness of the provisions in the financial statements we discussed the cases with management and reviewed correspondence and other documents exchanged between company and advocates/legal practitioners parties involved in the disputes. We verified the demands with extracts of concerned web-portals produced on sample basis.
Management judgement is involved in assessing the accounting for demands and in particular in considering the probability of a demand being successful and we have accordingly designated this as a focus area of the audit. The risk related to the claims is mainly associated with the completeness of the disclosure and the completeness of the provisions in the financial statements. We tested provisions recorded in the accounting records and reviewed the disclosures for completeness based on our procedures detailed above.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements:

10. 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 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:

• 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 with reference to standalonefinancial statements in place and the operating effectiveness 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 standalonefinancial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalone financialstatements represent 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 withthose charged with governance we determine those matters that were of most significancein the audit of the standalone financial statements of the current period and aretherefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in our auditor's report unlesslaw or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter or when in extremely rarecircumstances we determine that a matter should not be communicated in our report becausethe adverse consequences of doing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the publicinterest benefits of such communication.
