We conducted our audit of the Standalone Ind AS financial statements inaccordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) specified under section 143(10) of the Act(SAs). Our responsibility under those Standards is further described in the AuditorsResponsibilities for the Audit of Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements section of ourreport.

We believe that the audit evidence we haveobtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our qualified opinion on theStandalone Ind AS financial statements.
1. As per Indian Accounting Standard 36 which talks aboutimpairment of asset if the carrying amount of the asset is more than recoverable amountthen asset need to be impaired and as per Indian Accounting Standard 109 on financialinstruments which also contains provisions of impairment of financials assets throughexpected credit loss method basis these provisions we were required to seek for anyimpairment obligations from management but since the corporate debtors is still under theprocess CIRP and resolution professional and committee of creditors are in the process offinalization successful resolution applicant and the management has not determined valuein use thus impairment of Fixed Assets including Capital Work In Progress (Rs. 4545.92Crores) advances given to related parties(Rs. 551.13 Crores)in the absence ofinformation we are unable to ascertain the effect of the same on the financial statements.
As per Indian Accounting Standard 109 company was required to get theInvestment (Rs. 564.35 Crores) at fair value but the same has not been done by thecompany accordingly we are unable to ascertain the effect of the same on the Financialstatements.
2. Considering the current operating levels of the Company andthe ongoing corporate insolvency resolution process company has not made any Impairment inthe value of Tools and Dies accordingly we are unable to comment upon the effect of thesame on the Financial Statements.
Emphasis of Matter
We draw attention to the following:
a) Note No.2.1 regarding Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process (C1RP)initiated under Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016 ( the Code ) and the outcome of theCIRP is subject to decision of APEX Court / NCLT.
b) The Company has been continuously making losses consequently itsnet worth is negative and the Company s total liabilities exceeded its total assets. Thisindicates the existence of material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt on theCompany s ability to continue as a going concern. However in view of the CIRP in respectof the Company which is in progress the accounts have been prepared on a going concernbasis[Refer Note No. 2.1 of financial Notes];
c) Considering the ongoing corporate insolvency resolution process (asmentioned n Note No 2.2.2) the certainty as to the realization of unused tax losses andMAT credit available cannot be ascertained at this stage.
Consequently adjustment to deferred tax (net) and MAT credit availablehave not been given effect to. (Refer Note 2.2.2 to financial results)
d) As per the Code the RP has to receive collate and all the claimssubmitted by the creditors of the company.
The RP has verified and admitted the claims submitted by the creditorsagainst the company as per the Code. Pending finalisation of resolution plan the impactof such claims if any that also has not been considered in the preparation of thefinancial statements. Further interest on the financial debt from the date ofcommencement of CIRP (i.e. from 20th December 2017 till 31st March 2020) has not beenprovided in the books of accounts and charged to the Profit and Loss account. [ReferNote2.1 to financial Notes];
a) We have relied upon the report of another auditor for valuation ofthe inventory taken in the books of account however stock held in Nalagarh & Palwalhave not been considered in the report by the external auditor and the report alsoincludes some disclaimers such as: l due to the ongoing pandemic of Covid-19 it was notpractically possible to attend the physical stock count. Therefore video call was usedfor exercise which has some inherent weakness considering quality of the product whetherit is obsolete/damaged could not be commented on replacement/movement of inventory couldnot be tracked etc. we have assumed that no such things have been taken place. l Asinformed by the management tools dies and fixtures details are available with the HO andthe same were not made available to us at the time of stock count.
e) Trade receivables are subject to confirmation.

In preparing the financial statements management is responsible forassessing the Company s ability to continue as a going concern disclosing as applicablematters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unlessmanagement either intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations or has norealistic alternative but to do so.
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether thestandalone Ind AS financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatementwhether due to fraud or error and 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 Standards on Auditing will always detect a materialmisstatement 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 thesestandalone Ind AS financial statements.
As part of an audit in accordance with Standards on Auditing weexercise professional judgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit.We also: l 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.
l Obtainan understanding of internal control relevant to the audit inorder to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under Section143(3) (i) of the Act we are also responsible for explaining our opinion on whether theCompany has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operatingeffectiveness of such controls.

If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists we are required todraw attention in our auditor s report to the related disclosures in the financialstatements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusionsare based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor s report. Howeverfuture events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern.
l Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of theStandalone Ind AS financial statements including the disclosures and whether theStandalone Ind AS financial statements represent the underlying transactions and events ina manner that achieves fair presentation.
Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the standalonefinancial statements that individually or in aggregate makes it probable that theeconomic decisions of a reasonably knowledgeable user of the standalone Ind AS financialstatements may be influenced. We consider quantitative materiality and qualitative factorsin (i) planning the scope of our audit work and in evaluating the results of our auditwork; and (ii) to evaluate the effect of any identified misstatements in the standaloneInd AS financial statements.
We communicate with those charged with governance regarding amongother matters the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findingsincluding any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during ouraudit.
We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that wehave complied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and tocommunicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thoughtto bear on our independence and where applicable related safeguards.
From the matters communicated with those charged with governance wedetermine 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.
