("Ind AS") and other accounting principlesgenerally accepted in India of the state of affairs of the Company as at March 312022and its profit total comprehensive income changes in equity and its cash flows for theyear ended on that date.

Basis for Opinion

We conducted our audit of the standalone financial statements inaccordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAS) specified under section 143(10) of theAct. Our responsibilities under those Standards are further described in theAuditor?s Responsibilities for the Audit of the standalone Financial Statementssection of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with the Code ofEthics issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India ("ICAI")together with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the standalonefinancial statements under the provisions of the Act and the Rules made thereunder and wehave fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirementsand the ICAI's Code of Ethics. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained issufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion on the standalone financialstatements.

Emphasis of Matter

We draw attention to Note 48 of the financial statements whichdescribes the extent to which the COVID-19 Pandemic will impact the Company's resultswhich depend on future developments that are highly uncertain. Our opinion is not modifiedin respect of this matter.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professionaljudgement were of most significant in our audit of the standalone financial statements ofthe current period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of thestandalone financial statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we donot provide a separate opinion on these matters. We have determined the matters describedbelow to be the key audit matters to be communicated in our report

Key Audit Matter Auditor?s Response
Fair value assessment of trade receivables Principal Audit Procedures
Trade receivables comprise a significant portion of the liquid assets of the Company. We assessed the validity of material long outstanding receivables which are Nil by reviewing the customer ledger during current year. We also considered payments received subsequent to year-end and unusual patterns if any were reviewed to identify potentially impaired balances. The assessment of the appropriateness of the allowance for trade receivables comprised a variety of audit procedures across the Group including:
The trade receivables are mostly dues receivable from Government and allied Government agencies hence not impaired. There was no provision made on the trade receivable in the previous year. The most significant portion of the trade receivables less than one year comprises which are dues from • Challenging the appropriateness and reasonableness of the assumptions applied in the directors? assessment of the receivables allowance;
Government and Government agencies hence not impaired. Accordingly the estimation of the allowance for trade receivables is a significant judgment area and is therefore considered a key audit matter. • Consideration and concurrence of the agreed payment terms;
• Verification of receipts from trade receivables subsequent to year-end; and
• Considered the completeness and accuracy of the disclosures. To address the risk of management bias we evaluated the results of our procedures against audit procedures on other key balances to assess whether or not there was an indication of bias. We were satisfied that the Company?s trade receivables are fairly valued and no provision is deemed to be required against these receivables.
Revenue recognition Principal Audit Procedures
The Company applies judgment to determine whether each goods software product or services promised to a customer are capable of being distinct and are distinct in the context of the contract if not the promised goods software product or services are combined and accounted as a single performance obligation. The Company allocates the arrangement consideration to separately identifiable performance obligation deliverables based on their selling price determined in contract. Our audit procedures in respect of this area included:
We evaluated the effectiveness of key controls over the capture and measurement of revenue transactions across all material revenue streams Testing controls over software product sales including:
- documentation evidencing internal and third party physical inspection and confirmation of complete status;
The accuracy and of revenue amounts recorded is an inherent industry risk We evaluated the adequacy of the disclosures included in Note 24.
Disclosures relating revenue recognition are in Note 23.

The Company?s Board of Directors is responsible for thepreparation of other information. The other information comprises the information includedin the Directors Report and Corporate Governance Re- port but does not include theconsolidated financial statements standalone financial statements and our auditor?sreport thereon. The Directors Report and Corporate Governance Report is expected to bemade available to us after the date of this auditor?s report.

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

In connection with our audit of the standalone financial statementsour responsibility is to read the other information identified above when it becomesavailable and in doing so consider whether the other in- formation is materiallyinconsistent with the standalone financial statements or our knowledge obtained in theaudit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated.

When we read the Directors report and Corporate Governance Report if weconclude that there is a material misstatement therein we are required to communicate thematter to those charged with Gov- ernance.

Management?s Responsibility for the standalone financialStatements

The Company?s Board of Directors is responsible for the mattersstated in section 134(5) of the Act with respect to the preparation of these standalonefinancial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position financialperformance total comprehensive income changes in equity and cash flows of the Companyin accordance with the IND AS and other accounting principles generally accepted in India.This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordancewith the provisions of the Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Company and forpreventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection and application ofappropriate implementation and maintenance of accounting policies; making judgments andestimates that are reasonable and prudent; and design implementation and maintenance ofadequate internal financial controls that were operat- ing effectively for ensuring theaccuracy and completeness of the accounting records relevant to the preparation andpresentation of the standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view and arefree from material misstatement whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the standalone financial statements management isresponsible for assessing the Com- pany?s ability to continue as a going concerndisclosing as applicable matters related to going concern and using the going concernbasis of accounting unless management either intends to liquidate the Company or to ceaseoperations or has no realistic alternative but to do so.

The Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing theCompany?s financial reporting process.

Auditor?s Responsibilities for the Audit of the standaloneFinancial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether thestandalone financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whetherdue 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 guar- antee that an auditconducted in accordance with SAs will always detect a material 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 thesestandalone financial statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAS we exercise professionaljudgment and maintain profes- sional scepticism throughout the audit. We also:

• Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of thestandalone financial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform auditprocedures responsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient andappropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a materialmisstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraudmay involve collusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the overrideof internal control.

• Obtain an understanding of internal financial control relevantto the audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in thecircumstances. Under section 143(3)(i) of the Companies Act 2013 we are also responsiblefor expressing our opinion on whether the company has ade- quate internal financialcontrols system in place and the operating effectiveness of such controls.

• Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and thereasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.

• Conclude on the appropriateness of management?s use of thegoing concern basis of account- ing and based on the audit evidence obtained whether amaterial uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significantdoubt on the Company?s ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that amaterial uncertainty exists we are required to draw atten- tion in our auditor?sreport to the related disclosures in the standalone financial statements or if suchdisclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the auditevidence obtained up to the date of our auditor?s report. However future events orconditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern.

• Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of thestandalone financial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalonefinancial statements represent the underly- ing transactions and events in a manner thatachieves 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 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 work; and(ii) to evaluate the effect of any identified misstatements in the standalone financialstatements.

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 inter- nal 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 standalonefinancial statements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. Wedescribe these matters in our auditor?s report unless law or regu- lation precludespublic disclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we de-termine that a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverseconsequences of doing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interestbenefits of such communication.
