10. 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 w ithStandards on Auditing will always detect a material misstatement when it exists.Misstatements can arise from fraud or errorand are considered material if. individually orin the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions ofusers taken on the basis of these financial statements.

The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud ishigher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusion forgeryintentional omissions misrepresentations orthe override of internal control.

Ourconclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to tire date of our auditor'sreport. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue asagoing concern.

Independent Auditor's report on the Internal Financial Controls under Clause (i) ofsub-section 3 of Section 143 of the Companies Act 2013 (the "Act")
1. In conjunction with our audit of the financial statements of CraneInfrastructureLimited (the ''Company') as at and for the year ended 31 March 2021 we haveaudited the internal financial controls over financial reporting (IFCoFR) of the Companyas of that date.
Management's Responsibility for Internal Financial Controls
2. The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for establishing and maintaininginternal financial controls based on the internal control over financial reportingcriteria established by the Company considering the essential components of internalcontrol stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls over FinancialReporting (the "Guidance Note") issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountantsof India (ICAI). These responsibilities include the design implementation and maintenanceof adequate internal financial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring theorderly and efficient conduct of the Company's business including adherence to Company'spolicies the safeguarding of its assets the prevention and detection of frauds anderrors the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records and the timelypreparation of reliable financial information as required under the Act.
3. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's IFCoFR based on ouraudit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing issued by theICAI and deemed to be prescribed under Section 143 (10) of the Act to the extentapplicable to an audit of IFCoFR and the Guidance Note issued by the ICAI. Those Standardsand the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan andperform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether adequate IFCoFR wereestablished and maintained and if such controls operated effectively in all materialrespects.
4. Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacyof the IFCoFR and their operating effectiveness. Our audit of IFCoFR included obtaining anunderstanding of IFCoFR. assessing the risk that a material weakness exists and testingand evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on theassessed risk. The procedures selected depend on the auditor's judgement including theassessment ofthe risks of material misstatement ofthe financial statements whether due tofraud or error.
5. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our audit opinion on the Company's IFCoFR.
Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
6. A Company's IFCoFR is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regardingthe reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements forexternal purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A Company'sIFCoFR includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance ofrecords that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions anddispositions of the assets of the Company; (2) provide reasonable assurance thattransactions are recorded as necessary to pennit preparation of financial statements inaccordance with generally accepted accounting principles and that receipts andexpenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorisations ofmanagement and directors of the Company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regardingprevention or timely detection of unauthorised acquisition use or disposition of theCompany's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
7. Because of the inherent limitations of IFCoFR. including the possibility ofcollusion or improper management override of controls material misstatements due to erroror fraud may occur and not be detected. Also projections of any evaluation of the IFCoFRto future periods are subject to the risk that IFCoFR may become inadequate because ofchanges in conditions or that the degree of compliance with the policies or proceduresmay deteriorate.
8. In our opinion the Company has. in all material respects adequate internalfinancial controls over financial reporting and such internal financial controls overfinancial reporting were operating effectively as at 31 March 2021. based on the internalcontrol over financial reporting criteria established by the Company considering theessential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note issued by the ICAI.
