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

Key Audit Matters

1. Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period. These matterswere addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a whole and informing our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters.

2. We have determined that there are no key audit matters to be communicated in ourreport.

The Company's Board of Directors are responsible for the other information. The otherinformation comprises the information included in the Management Discussion and AnalysisBoard's Report and Report on Corporate governance but does not include the financialstatements and our auditor's report thereon.

Our opinion on the financial statements does not cover the other information and we donot express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the Ind AS financial statements our responsibility isto read the other information and in doing so consider whether the other information ismaterially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained during thecourse of our audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If based on the workwe have performed we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this otherinformation we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in thisregard.

Responsibilities of Management and Those Charged with Governance for the Ind ASFinancial 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 financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial positionfinancial performance including other comprehensive income cash flows and changes inequity of the Company in accordance with the Ind AS and accounting principles generallyaccepted in India including the Ind AS specified under section 133 of the Act.

In preparing the financial statements management is responsible for assessing theCompany's ability to continue as a going concern disclosing as applicable mattersrelated to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless managementeither intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations or has no realisticalternative but to do so.

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

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Ind AS Financial Statements

1. 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 highlevel of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAswill always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise fromfraud or error and are considered material if individually or in the aggregate theycould reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on thebasis of these financial statements.

2. 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 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.

3. We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among other mattersthe planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings including anysignificant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit.

4. 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.

5. From the matters communicated with those charged with governance we determine thosematters that were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements of thecurrent period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in ourauditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter orwhen 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.

Other Matters

We draw attention to Note no. 44 to the Financial Statements which describes theuncertainties due to the outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19). In view of theseuncertainties the impact on the Company's financial statements is significantly dependenton future developments. Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.
