Key audit matters How our audit addressed the key audit matter
1. IT systems and controls
We performed the following procedures assisted by specialized IT auditors on the IT infrastructure and applications relevant to financial reporting:
The financial accounting and reporting systems of the Company are fundamentally reliant on IT systems and IT controls to process significant transaction volumes. • Tested the design and operating effectiveness of IT access controls over the information systems that are important to financial reporting and various interfaces configuration and other identified application controls.
Automated accounting procedures and IT environment controls which include IT governance general IT controls over program development and changes access to programs and data and IT operations are required to be designed and to operate effectively to ensure accurate financial reporting. Therefore due to the pervasive nature and complexity of the IT environment the assessment of the general IT controls and the application controls specific to the accounting and preparation of the financial information is considered to be a key audit matter. • Tested IT general controls (logical access changes management and aspects of IT operational controls). This included testing that requests for access to systems were appropriately reviewed and authorized.
• Tested the Company's periodic review of access rights. We also inspected requests of changes to systems for appropriate approval and authorization.
• In addition to the above we tested the design and operating effectiveness of certain automated and IT dependent manual controls that were considered as key internal controls over financial reporting.
• Tested the design and operating effectiveness compensating controls in case deficiencies were identified and where necessary extended the scope of our substantive audit procedures.

Other Information

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the other information. The otherinformation comprises of the Annual Report but does not include the standalone Ind ASfinancial statements and our auditor's report thereon. The other information is expectedto be made available to us after the date of this auditor's report.

Our opinion on the standalone Ind AS financial statements does not cover the otherinformation and we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements ourresponsibility is to read the other information identified above when it becomes availableand in doing so consider whether such other information is materially inconsistent withthe standalone Ind AS financial statements or our knowledge obtained in the audit orotherwise appears to be materially misstated.

When we read such other information if we conclude that there is a materialmisstatement therein we are required to communicate the matter to those charged withgovernance and to comply with the relevant applicable requirements of the standard onauditing for auditor's responsibility in relation to other information in documentscontaining audited financial statements. We have nothing to report in this regard.

Responsibilities 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 financial statementsthat give a true and fair view of the financial position financial performance includingother comprehensive income cash flows and changes in equity of the Company in accordancewith the accounting principles generally accepted in India including the IndianAccounting Standards (Ind AS) specified under section 133 of the Act read with theCompanies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules 2015 as amended. This responsibility alsoincludes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions ofthe Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Company and for preventing and detectingfrauds and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate accountingpolicies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and the designimplementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls that wereoperating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accountingrecords relevant to the preparation and presentation of the standalone financialstatements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement whetherdue to fraud or error.

In preparing the standalone financial statements management is responsible forassessing the Company's ability to continue as a going concern disclosing as applicablematters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unlessmanagement either intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations or has norealistic alternative but to do so.

Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company's financialreporting process.

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 theaggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of userstaken on the 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 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 our 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. Under section 143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the Companyhas adequate internal financial controls with reference to financial statements in placeand the operating effectiveness of such controls.

• Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonablenessof accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.

• Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basisof accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertaintyexists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company'sability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty existswe are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures inthe financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion.Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor'sreport. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue asa going concern.

• Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the standalonefinancial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalone financialstatements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.

We 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 we identify during our audit.

We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we have compliedwith relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with themall relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on ourindependence and where applicable related safeguards.

From the matters communicated with those charged with governance we determine thosematters that were of most significance in the audit of the standalone financial statementsfor the financial year ended March 31 2021 and are therefore the key audit matters. Wedescribe these matters in our auditor's report 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.
