The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the other information. The otherinformation comprises the information included in the Annual Report but does not includethe Standalone Financial Statements and our auditors' report thereon. Our opinion on theStandalone Financial Statements does not cover the other information and we do not expressany form of assurance conclusion thereon. In connection with our audit of the StandaloneFinancial Statements our responsibility is to read the other information and in doingso consider whether such other information is materially inconsistent with the financialstatements or our knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materiallymisstated. 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

RESPONSIBILITY OF MANAGEMENT FOR THE STANDALONE 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 financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financialposition financial performance (changes in equity)[iv] and cash flows of the Company inaccordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India including theaccounting Standards specified under section 133 of the Act.

In preparing the financial statements management is responsiblefor assessing the Company's ability to continue as a going concern disclosing asapplicable matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis ofaccounting unless management either intends to liquidate the Company or to ceaseoperations or has no realistic alternative but to do so.

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

AUDITORS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE AUDIT OF THE 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 auditors' 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 judgement andmaintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:

- Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the Standalone 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 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 statements in place andthe operating effectiveness of such controls.

- Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness ofaccounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.

- Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basis ofaccounting 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 auditors' 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 auditors'report. 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 Standalone FinancialStatements including the disclosures and whether the Standalone Financial Statementsrepresent 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 le 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 auditors' 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.
