Basis for Opinion

We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) specifiedunder Section 143(10) of the Act. Our responsibilities under those Standards are furtherdescribed in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone FinancialStatements section of our report.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient andappropriate to provide a basis for our opinion.

Emphasis of Matter

We draw attention to Note 45 to the standalone financial results which explainsCOVID-19 that has caused significant disruptions in the business operations of companiesacross India and has caused significant challenges. One such challenge being inability forthe Company to conduct a physical verification of inventories for the year-end 31st March2020 due to Government having imposed restrictions during the lockdown on account ofhealth travel and safety concerns.

The Company's management however conducted physical verification of inventories ondates other than the date of financial statements but prior to the date of the boardmeeting to be held for the purpose of adopting the financial results at certain locations(factories and warehouses) and has made available the documents in confirmation thereof.Inventories being material to the financial statements/results of the Company theStandard on Auditing (SA) 501 Audit Evidence - Specific Considerations for Selecteditems cast a duty on us to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding theexistence and condition of inventories. give the information required We have performedalternate audit procedures based on documents and other information made available to usto audit the existence of inventories as per the Guidance provided by the Standard onAuditing (SA) 501 Audit Evidence - Specific Considerations for Selected items andhave obtained sufficient appropriate audit evidence to issue our unmodified opinion onthese standalone financial results.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those that in our professional judgement were of mostsignificance in our audit of the standalone financial statements of the current year.These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the standalone financialstatements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide aseparate opinion on these matters.

We have determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to becommunicated in our report.

1. Goodwill (refer notes 2 and 38 to the standalone financial statements) Onthe demerger of the Consumer Business Crompton Greaves Limited (CGL) (now CG Power andIndustrial Solutions Limited) and in terms of ‘Scheme of accounting and auditingArrangement' the assets and liabilities of the Consumer Business along with certain brandusage rights were transferred to Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals Limited (CGCEL).The excess of liabilities over net assets based on fair value and the share capitalamounting to ` 779.41 crore was recorded as Goodwill in the books of CGCEL. The Companyhas adopted the policy of amortising the goodwill in the books of account on the outcomeof impairment test if there is an indication of impairment as at the reporting date. Basedon the valuation done by the management's consultant the value of the goodwill is morethan book value of goodwill as at 31st March 2020 and hence there is no indication ofimpairment.

We draw attention to note 45 to the standalone statements and our observations underparagraph Emphasis of Matter of our report. Due to the inherent uncertainty involved inforecasting and discounting future cash flows determination of discount and terminalgrowth rates which are the basis for computing the value of goodwill and the assessmentof recoverability these are the key judgement areas. In view of the above the Companyhas carried out an impairment assessment of goodwill using the value-in-use model which isbased on the net present value of the forecast earnings of the cash generating units. Thecomputation involved using certain assumptions around discount rates growth rates andcash flow forecasts. Accordingly this is considered as the key audit matter.

Principal Audit Procedures

The Company's unsettled tax positions includes matters under dispute which involvessignificant determine the possible outcome of these disputes. These provisions areestimated using a significant thedegree of management judgement in interpreting thevarious relevant rules regulations and practices.

Hence it is considered as a Key Audit Matter.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalonefinancial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraudor error and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assuranceis a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordancewith SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements canarise from fraud or error and are considered material if individually or in aggregatethey could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken onthe basis of these standalone financial statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintain professional skepticism 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 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 Companyhas adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operating effectivenessof such controls;

If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists we are required to drawattention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures in the standalone financialstatements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusionsare based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor's report. Howeverfuture events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern;and Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the financial statementsincluding the disclosures and whether the standalone financial statements represent theunderlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.

Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the financial statements thatindividually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may be influenced. materialityand qualitative factors in: (i) planning the scope of our audit work and in evaluating theresults of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effect of any identified misstatements inthe financial statements.

We communicate with those charged with regarding among other matters the plannedscope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings including any significantdeficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit.

We also provide those charged with with a statement that we have complied with relevantethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with them allrelationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on ourindependence and where applicable related safeguards.

From the matters communicated with those with governance we determine those mattersthat were of most significance in the audit of the standalone financial statements of thecurrent period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in ourauditor's report where applicable and unless law or regulation precludes publicdisclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that amatter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doingso would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.
