Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgmentwere of most significance in our audit of the Standalone Financial Statements of thecurrent period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the StandaloneFinancial Statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not providea separate opinion on these matters. We have determined that there are no key auditmatters to communicate in our report for the year ended 31st March 2022.

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the otherinformation. The other information comprises the information included in the AnnualReport but does not include the Standalone Financial Statements and our auditor's reportthereon.

Our opinion on the Standalone Financial Statements does not cover theother information and we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the Standalone Financial Statements ourresponsibility is to read the other information and in doing so consider whether theother information is materially inconsistent with the Standalone Financial Statements orour knowledge obtained during the course of our audit or otherwise appears to bematerially misstated.

If based on the work we have performed on the other information that weobtained prior to the date of this auditor's report we conclude that there is a materialmisstatement of this other information we are required to report that fact. We havenothing to report in this regard.

 

Responsibilities of the Management for the Standalone FinancialStatements

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters statedin 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 including Other Comprehensive Income Cash Flows and the Statement of Changesin Equity of the Company in accordance with the Ind AS and other accounting principlesgenerally accepted in India.

Those Board of Directors arealso responsible for overseeing the Company's financial reporting process.

 

Auditor's Responsibilities for the audit of the Standalone FinancialStatements

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 guarantee that an auditconducted in accordance with SAs will always detect a material misstatement when itexists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material ifindividually or in the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence theeconomic decisions of users taken on the basis of these Standalone Financial Statements.As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment and maintainprofessional skepticism 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 control relevant to the auditin order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. UnderSection 143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion onwhether the Company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and theoperating 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 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 we conclude that a materialuncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to therelated disclosures in the Standalone Financial Statements or if such disclosures areinadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidenceobtained up to the date of our auditor's report. However future events or conditions maycause 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 underlying 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 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. From the matters communicatedwith those charged with governance we determine those matters that were of mostsignificance in the audit of the Standalone Financial Statements of the current period andare therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in our auditor's reportunless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter or when inextremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not be communicated in ourreport because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonably be expected tooutweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
