We believe that the audit evidence we have obtainedis 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 March 31 2019. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of thestandalone Ind AS financial statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon andwe do not provide a separate opinion on these matters.

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the other information. The otherinformation comprises the information included in the Annual report but does not includethe standalone Ind AS financial statements and our auditor's report thereon.

Our opinion on the standalone Ind AS financial statements does not cover the otherinformation and we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements ourresponsibility is to read the other information and in doing so consider whether suchother information is materially inconsistent with the financial statements or ourknowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated.

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 financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financialposition financial performance changes in equity and cash flows of the Company inaccordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India including theaccounting Standards specified under Section 133 of the Act.

Auditor's Responsibility for the Audit of the Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financialstatements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or errorand to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion.

Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an auditconducted in accordance with SAs will always detect a material misstatement when itexists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material ifindividually or in the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence theeconomic decisions of users taken on the basis of these financial statements.

• Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the standalone Ind ASfinancial 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 control relevant to the audit in order todesign audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under Section 143(3)(i)of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the Company hasadequate internal financial controls system in place and the operating effectiveness ofsuch 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 standalone IndAS financial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalone Ind ASfinancial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner thatachieves 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.
