The Company's management and Board of Directors are responsible for the otherinformation. The other information comprises the information included in the Company'sannual report but does not include the Standalone Financial Statements and auditors'report thereon. My opinion on the Standalone Financial Statements does not cover the otherinformation and I do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon. In connectionwith my audit of the Standalone Financial Statements my responsibility is to read theother information and in doing so consider whether the other information is materiallyinconsistent with the Standalone Financial Statements or my knowledge obtained in theaudit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If based on the work I haveperformed I conclude that if there is a material misstatement of this other informationI am required to report that fact. I have nothing to report in this regard.
Responsibility of Management for the Standalone Financial Statements
The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in Section134(5) of the Act with respect to the preparation of these Standalone FinancialStatements that give a true and fair view of the financial position financialperformance the cash flow of the Company in accordance with the accounting principlesgenerally accepted in India including the accounting Standards specified under Section133 of the Act.

Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the company's financialreporting process.
Auditor's Responsibility for the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements
My objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the Standalone FinancialStatements are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or error and toissue an auditor's report that includes my opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high levelof assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAs willalways detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraudor error and are considered material if individually or in the aggregate they couldreasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken based on theseStandalone Financial Statements.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs I exercise professional judgment andmaintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. I also:
Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the StandaloneFinancial 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 my 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 but not for the purposeof expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the company's internal control.
Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonablenessof accounting estimates and related disclosures made by the Board of Directors.
Conclude on the appropriateness of the Board of Directors' use of the goingconcern basis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a materialuncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on theCompany's ability to continue as a going concern. If I conclude that a materialuncertainty exists I am required to draw attention in my auditor's report to the relateddisclosures in the financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modifymy opinion. My conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of Myauditor's report. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease tocontinue as a going concern.
Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the StandaloneFinancial Statements including the disclosures and whether the financial statementsrepresent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.
I 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 I identify during my audit.
I also provide those charged with governance with a statement that I have complied withrelevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with them allrelationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on my independenceand where applicable related safeguards.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
A Company's internal financial control over financial reporting is a process designedto provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and thepreparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generallyaccepted accounting principles. A Company's internal financial control over financialreporting includes those policies and procedures that:
1) Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately andfairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company;
2) Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permitpreparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accountingprinciples and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only inaccordance with authorizations of management and Directors of the Company; and
3) Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection ofunauthorized acquisition use or disposition of the Company's assets that could have amaterial effect on the financial statements.
Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financialreporting including the possibility of collusion or improper management override ofcontrols material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls over financialreporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial controlover financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or thatthe degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In my opinion the Company has in all material respects an adequate internalfinancial controls system over financial reporting and such internal financial controlsover financial reporting were operating effectively as at 31st March 2021based on the internal control over financial reporting criteria established by the Companyconsidering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note onAudit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute ofChartered Accountants of India (ICAI)
