Description of Key Audit Matter
|The key audit matter ||How the matter was addressed in our audit |
|Carrying value of inventories As at 31 March 2021 inventory of finished goods of Rs. 2209 lacs is held across multiple locations. Inventory should be recorded at the lower of cost and net realisable value being selling price less estimated selling costs. A risk exists that inventories may need to be sold at a price which is below the cost of production. ||In view of the significance of the matter we applied the following audit procedures in this area among others to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence: |
|As gross margins on sale of Calcinated Petroleum Coke ( C P C ) c a n b e l o w a n d inventory can sometimes be sold at a loss provisions are recorded against inventory to write it down to management's b e s t e s t i m a t e o f i t s r e c o v e r a b l e a m o u n t . || u n d e r s t o o d b u s i n e s s p r o c e s s e s s u r r o u n d i n g management's review for the valuation of the inventory; |
|R e c o v e r a b l e a m o u n t estimated by management is s u b j e c t t o v a r i o u s k e y assumptions such as the length of time required to sell inventories the price level at which inventory will be sold in futureand whether inventories will need to be valued below their cost price. Accordingly this was one of the focus areas for our audit. || t e s t e d t h e d e s i g n implementation and operating effectiveness of controls around inventory provisioning; |
| || selected a sample of inventory items and agreed key input in relation to expected sales price of the inventory to supporting documentation; and |
| || performed a retrospective review of prior year provision for indications that current year provision may be materially misstated. |
| ||In view of the significance of the matter we applied the following audit procedures in this area among others to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence: |
|I m p a c t o f C O V I D - 1 9 pandemic on the Company (Refer Note 2 (a) related to "Basis of preparation and compliance with Ind AS" and Note 3(A)(viii) related to "Estimation of uncertainties relating to the global health pandemic from COVID-19" of the financial statements) ||l Obtained an understanding of the key controls relating to the Company's forecasting process. |

|The Indian Government post that has taken several measures to curtail the o u t b r e a k o f C O V I D - 1 9 including phased lockdown as and when required and other restrictions. The lockdown and restrictions due to COVID-19 have resulted in challenges to the overall economic activity a c r o s s t h e g l o b e . T h e Company has assessed the impact of COVID-19 on its operations based on future cash flow projections. ||l Assessed the forecasted income statement and cash flow by considering plausible c h a n g e s t o t h e k e y assumptions adopted by the Company. |
|Given the continued inherent uncertainty associated with COVID-19 it is difficult to determine a reasonable worst- case scenario. Accordingly management modelled a r a n g e o f s c e n a r i o s i n preparing the cash flow projections. ||l Assessed the sensitivities and performed stress testing on the forecasted cash flows. |
|As a result of the uncertainty due to the impact of COVID-19 on the Company we identified this as a key audit matter. ||l Examined the Company's funding arrangements and evaluated the financing terms for them. |

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financialstatements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or errorand to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a highlevel of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAswill always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise fromfraud or error and are considered material if individually or in the aggregate theycould reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on thebasis of these financial statements.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:
l Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statementswhether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsive to thoserisks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis forour opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud ishigher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusion forgeryintentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internal control.
l Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to designaudit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3)(i) of theAct we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the company hasadequate internal financial controls with reference to financial statementsin place andthe operating effectiveness of such controls.
l Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness ofaccounting estimates and related disclosures in the financial statements made by theManagement and Board of Directors.
l Conclude on the appropriateness of the Management and Board of Directors use of thegoing concern basis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether amaterial uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significantdoubt on the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that amaterial uncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in our auditor's report tothe related disclosures in the 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.
l Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the financial statementsincluding the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent the underlyingtransactions and events in a manner that achieves 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 andother 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 financial statements of thecurrent period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in ourauditors'report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter orwhen in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not becommunicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonablybe expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
