Key Audit Matter Response to Key Audit Matter
1. First time adoption of Ind AS framework Our Audit procedures included but not limited to the following:
The Company has adopted the Indian Accounting Standards notified under section 133 of the Companies Act 2013 read together with the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules 2015 (as amended) ('Ind AS') with effect from 1 April 2019 (1 April 2018 being the transition date) and prepared the first set of standalone financial statements under Ind AS framework in the current year. Obtained an understanding of management's processes and controls around adoption of Ind AS. We sought explanations from the management for areas involving complex judgements or interpretations to assess its appropriateness.
For periods up to and including the year ended 31 March 2019 the Company prepared its standalone financial statements in accordance with accounting standards notified under section 133 of the Companies Act 2013 read together with paragraph 7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules 2014 (Indian GAAP or previous GAAP). Reviewed the diagnostics performed by the management to assess the impact on Ind AS transition to the individual financial statement line items.
This change in the financial reporting framework required an end-to-end evaluation of the potential impact on each component of the financial statement which involved significant efforts required by the management. This process also required the management to apply significant judgements to identify and elect appropriate accounting policies suitable for various transactions and balances relating to the operations of the Company including electing of available options for transition of balances as at transition date from the previous GAAP to the Ind AS. Reviewed the implementation of exemptions availed and options chosen by the Company in accordance with the requirements of Ind AS 101 first time adoption of Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS 101).
Evaluated the accounting policies adopted by the Company on transition to Ind AS and assessed its appropriateness basis our understanding of the entity and its operations and the requirements of relevant accounting standards under the Ind AS framework.
Further the first time preparation of the Ind AS standalone financial statements involved preparation and presentation of additional notes and disclosures as required by the Ind AS framework as compared to the previous GAAP in addition to Note 34 to the standalone financial statements setting forth the reconciliation of balances from previous GAAP to the Ind AS at the transition date and the impact of restatement on the results of the comparative period due to such transition. Tested whether the presentation and disclosures in the standalone financial statements are in accordance with the requirements of the applicable standards and regulatory requirements.
Considering the significance of the above transition with respect to the standalone financial statements the complexities and efforts involved this matter has been identified as a key audit matter for the current year audit. Evaluated the appropriateness and adequacy of disclosures with respect to the reconciliations prepared and presented by the management in the standalone financial statements in accordance with Ind AS 101.

The company's Board of Directors is responsible for the other information. The otherinformation comprises the information included in the Annual Report for example Board ofDirector's Report Report on Corporate Governance Management Discussion & AnalysisReport Business Responsibility Report Shareholder information etc. but does notinclude the financial statements and our auditor's report thereon.

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 standalone Ind AS 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 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 and Those Charged with Governance for the StandaloneInd AS Financial Statements

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in section134(5) of the Companies Act 2013 ("the Act”) with respect to the preparation ofthese standalone Ind AS financial statements that give a true and fair view of thefinancial position financial performance including other comprehensive income cashflows and changes in equity of the Company in accordance with the accounting principlesgenerally accepted in India including the applicable Indian Accounting Standards (IND AS)specified under section 133 of the Act read with the Companies ( Indian AccountingStandards) Rules 2015 as amended.

This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records inaccordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Companyand for preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection andapplication of appropriate implementation and maintenance of accounting policies; makingjudgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and design implementation andmaintenance of adequate internal financial controls that were operating effectively forensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records relevant to thepreparation and presentation of the financial statement that give a true and fair view andare free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor's Responsibility

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the Standalone Ind ASfinancial 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 Ind AS 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 standalone Ind ASfinancial 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 controls relevant to the audit in order todesign audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances but not for the purposeof expressing an opinion on whether the Company has in place an adequate internalfinancial controls system over financial reporting and the operating effectiveness of suchcontrols.

• 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 ability ofthe company to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertaintyexists we are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to the relateddisclosures in the Standalone Ind AS 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 the Standalone IndAS financial statements including the disclosures and whether the Standalone Ind ASfinancial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner thatachieves fair presentation.

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 Ind AS financialstatements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describethese matters in our auditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosureabout the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a mattershould not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing sowould reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.
