Basis for Opinion

We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing("SAs") specified under Section 143(10) of the Act. Our responsibilities underthose Standards are further described in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Auditof the Financial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Company inaccordance with the Code of Ethics issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants ofIndia (ICAI) together with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of thestandalone financial statements under the provisions of the Act and the Rules madethereunder and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance withthese requirements and the ICAI‘s Code of Ethics. We believe that the audit evidencewe have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion on thestandalone financial statements.

Emphasis of Matter

We draw attention to note 53 of the Statement which states the impactof Coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) on the operations of the Company. Our opinion isnot modified in respect of this matter.

Key Audit Matters

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 audit matters to communicatein our report for the year ended March 31 2020.

Information Other than the Financial Statements and Auditor'sReport thereon

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'sreport thereon. 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 financial statements ourresponsibility is to read the other information and in doing so consider whether theother information is materially inconsistent with the financial statements or ourknowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If basedon the work we have performed we conclude that there is a material misstatement of thisother information; we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in thisregard.

Management Responsibility for the Standalone Financial Statements

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 including other comprehensive income cash flows and the statement of changesin equity of the Company in accordance with the accounting principles generally acceptedin India including the Indian Accounting Standards ("Ind AS") specified underSection 133 of the Act read with the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules 2015as amended.

This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accountingrecords in accordance with the provision of the Act for safeguarding the assets of theCompany and for preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection andapplication of the appropriate accounting policies; making judgements and estimates thatare reasonable and prudent; and design implementation and maintenance of adequateinternal financial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy andcompleteness of the accounting records relevant to the preparation and fair presentationof the standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free frommaterial misstatement whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the standalone financial statements management isresponsible for assessing the Company'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 Responsibility

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 professionaljudgment and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. 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 inorder to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under Section143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether theCompany has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operatingeffectiveness 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 conditionsmay 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 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 amongother matters 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 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 regulation precludespublic disclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determinethat a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences ofdoing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.
