Our responsibilities under those Standards are furtherdescribed in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statementssection of our report.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters (‘KAM') are those matters that in our professional judgmentwere of most significance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period.These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as awhole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion onthese matters.

The Key Audit Matters How our audit addressed the Key Audit Matters
Inventory Valuation Audit Procedures
Due to the lockdown imposed by the Government on account of COVID-19 it was not possible for us to carry out the physical verification of inventories as at March 31 2020 Our audit procedures involved the following:
• performing alternative audit procedures to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding the existence and condition of inventory;
However the management duly conducted the physical inventory counting internally as at the year end to the extent possible and provided the necessary details to us. • Obtaining and evaluating the adequacy of the inventory physical verification instructions prepared and issued by the management to determine if the instructions provided were appropriate and comprehensive;
We determined the above area as a Key Audit Matter due to the materiality of the inventory figures appearing in the Financial Statements. • Verifying the documentation supporting purchases and subsequent sale of inventory items on a sample basis;
• Ascertaining that these procedures indirectly provide evidence that stock balance which was not physically verified actually existed as on the date to enable subsequent sales and indirectly support and corroborate the assertion of existence;
As at 31 March 2020 the carrying amount of trade receivables was Rs. 230.55 lakhs The Company determines at each balance sheet date the existence of any objective evidence of impairment of trade receivables. Basis this evaluation the Company provides for impairment allowance which comprises of a specific element based on individual debtors and a collective element based on historical experience adjusted for certain current factors. In computing the allowance Company considers factors such as type of products sold credit terms ageing of receivables current creditworthiness past Our audit procedures to assess the recoverability of trade debtors included the following:
• Assessing the design and implementation of the Company's internal control in relation to the revenue and collection cycle particularly the controls over receivables collection;
• Obtaining an understanding Company's judgment about recoverability of individual trade debtor balances. Evaluating the provisions for doubtful debt s made by Company for these individual balances with reference to the debtors' financial condition
collection history insurance cover as also historical loss experience. We focused on this area because: Trade receivables and its loss allowance are significant to the Company. We identified recoverability of trade debtors as a key audit matter because of delays in collections of amounts due as also the recognition of expected credit losses which is inherently subjective and requires the exercise of significant company judgment. industry in which the debtors are operating ageing of balances historical and post yearend collection records;
• Assessing on a sample basis items in the trade receivables' ageing report were classified within the correct ageing bracket by comparing individual items in the report with underlying documentation;
• Comparing on a sample basis cash receipts from customers subsequent to the financial year-end relating to trade receivable balances as at 31 March 2020 with bank statements and relevant remittance documentation; and
• Evaluate the rationale of Company's loss allowance estimates by inspecting the information used by the Company such as ageing of overdue balances extent of insurance coverage historical and post year- end collection trend from debtors legal notices issued to overdue debtors and the historical and estimated loss rate.
As at 31 March 2020 net deferred tax assets recognized were Rs. 154.94 lakhs. Our audit procedures over recognition of deferred tax assets included the following: -
Deferred tax assets include deferred tax of Rs. 131.55 lakhs recognized on carry-forward losses and unabsorbed depreciation. The analysis of the recoverability of such deferred tax assets has been identified as a key audit matter because the assessment process involves judgment regarding the future profitability and the likelihood of the realization of these assets in particular whether there will be taxable profits in future periods that support the recognition of these assets. This requires assumptions regarding future profitability which is inherently uncertain. • Obtained an understanding of the process and tested the controls over recording of deferred tax and review of deferred tax at each reporting date;
• We tested the computation of the amounts recognized as net deferred tax assets;
• We evaluated company assumptions used to determine the probability that deferred tax assets recognized in the balance sheet will be recovered through taxable income in future years by comparing them against profit trends and future business plans; and
• Read and assessed the disclosure made in the financial statements for assessing compliance with disclosure requirements.

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 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 FinancialStatements including the disclosures and whether the Financial Statements represent theunderlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.

• Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the standalone financialstatements that individually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economicdecisions of a reasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may beinfluenced. We

consider quantitative materiality and qualitative factors in (i) planning the scope ofour audit work and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effectof any identified misstatements in the financial statements.

• We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among othermatters 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 we havecomplied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicatewith them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear onour independence and where applicable related safeguards.
