We have audited the standalone 3nancial statements of Himatsingka Seide Limited("the Company") which comprise the standalone balance sheet as at 31 March2021 and the standalone statement of pro3t and loss (including other comprehensiveincome) standalone statement of changes in equity and standalone statement of cash 3owsfor the year then ended and notes to the standalone financial statements including asummary of the signi3cant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanationsgiven to us the aforesaid standalone 3nancial statements give the information required bythe Companies Act 2013 ("Act") in the manner so required and give a true andfair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India of thestate of a3airs of the Company as at 31 March 2021 and pro3t and other comprehensiveincome changes in equity and its cash 3ows for the year ended on that date.

BASIS FOR OPINION

We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) speci3edunder Section 143(10) of the Act. Our responsibilities under those SAs are furtherdescribed in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone FinancialStatements section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance withthe Code of Ethics issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India together withthe ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the standalone 3nancialstatements under the provisions of the Act and the Rules thereunder and we have ful3lledour other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements and the Code ofEthics. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is su3cient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our opinion on the standalone 3nancial statements.

EMPHASIS OF MATTER

We draw attention to Note 1.4 to these standalone 3nancial statements which describesthe Management's assessment and the e3ects of COVID-19 pandemic on the signi3cantestimates and judgements involved in preparation of the standalone 3nancial statements. Inview of the highly uncertain economic environment impacting the textile industry ade3nitive assessment of the impact is highly dependent upon circumstances as they evolvein future and the actual results may di3er from those estimated as at the date of approvalof these standalone 3nancial statements. Based on information available as of this dateManagement believes that no further adjustments are required to the standalone 3nancialstatements.

Our opinion is not modi3ed in respect of this matter.

KEY AUDIT MATTERS

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgement were of mostsigni3cance in our audit of the standalone 3nancial statements of the current year. Thesematters were addressed in the context of our audit of the standalone 3nancial statementsas a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinionon these matters.

DESCRIPTION OF KEY AUDIT MATTER

 

REVENUE RECOGNITION
See note 2.1 and 20 to the standalone 3nancial statements In view of the signi3cance of the matter we applied the following audit procedures in this area amongst others to obtain audit evidence:
Revenue from the sale of goods in the ordinary course is measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable when the goods are delivered and control has passed to the buyer. 1. We evaluated the revenue recognition accounting policies by comparing it with the applicable accounting standards.
Revenue from sale of goods is recognized at the point in time when control is transferred to customer. 2. We tested the design of key controls and operating e3ectiveness of the relevant key controls with respect to revenue recognition on samples selected on a random basis.
We identi3ed revenue recognition as a key audit matter because the Company and its external stakeholders focus on revenue as a key performance indicator. This could result in a risk of revenues being overstated or recognised before control has been transferred. 3. We performed substantive testing for the revenue transactions using statistical sampling and tested the supporting documents.
4 We carried out analytical procedures on revenue recognised during the year to identify unusual variances if any and obtained explanations from management.
5. We tested on a sample basis speci3c revenue transactions recorded before and after the 3nancial year-end date to determine that the period in which the revenue has been recognized is appropriate.
6. We tested speci3c manual journal entries posted to revenue to identify any unusual items.

 

CARRYING VALUE OF INVESTMENTS IN SUBSIDIARIES AND ASSESSMENT OF IMPAIRMENT
See note 2.14 and 4A to the standalone 3nancial statements In view of the signi3cance of the matter we applied the following audit procedures in this area amongst others to obtain audit evidence:
The Company has made signi3cant investments in subsidiaries which are recorded at cost less impairment. The investments in subsidiaries are tested for impairment by Management at least annually. The carrying value of investments is dependent on achieving su3cient level of future net cash 3ows. 1. We tested the design of key controls and operating e3ectiveness of the relevant key controls around the assessment of impairment of investments in subsidiaries.
The Company is required to make signi3cant judgement with respect to the impairment if any which is based on the information available with the Company. 2. We tested the underlying assumptions used by the Company for their assessment of the fair value of the investments.
Impairment assessment of investments have been identi3ed as a key audit matter because of the estimation and judgements involved in computation of the fair value of investments. 4. We together with the valuation specialists tested the key assumptions used by management along with their external experts in computing fair value of investments such as weighted average cost of capital growth rates and pro3tability.
6. We performed sensitivity analysis on key assumptions used by the Company in computing fair value of the investments to identify impairment charge if any and when identi3ed an appropriate recognition including disclosure of the impairment in the 3nancial statement.

 

RECOGNITION FOR GOVERNMENT GRANTS AND ASSESSMENT OF RECOVERABILITY
See note 2.5 6 and 8 to the standalone 3nancial statements In view of the signi3cance of the matter we applied the following audit procedures in this area among other procedures to obtain su3cient audit evidence:
The Company is eligible for government grants under various schemes issued by the State and the Central government. 1. We evaluated the government grant accounting policies by comparing with the applicable accounting standards.
Each of these schemes requires ful3lment of conditions by the Company to be eligible to receive grant. The Company also assesses the recoverability of these grants at each balance sheet date. 2. We tested the design of key controls and operating e3ectiveness of relevant key controls with respect to recognition of grant (including its classi3cation as capital and revenue grant) and assessment of recoverability of government grants.
Recognition of grants (including its classi3cation as capital or revenue grant) require a suitable assurance by the Company towards compliance with the conditions speci3ed in the relevant schemes and that the grants will be received. The assessment of ful3lment of relevant conditions speci3ed in the grant at the time of recognition involves signi3cant judgement and assumptions. 4. We performed substantive testing on a sample basis towards recognition of grants in accordance with the relevant schemes its classi3cation as revenue or capital grant and veri3ed the supporting documents.
Further the Company needs to assess at each balance sheet date the recoverability of the grant. 6. We evaluated the Company's assessment of recoverability of respective grants based on ageing analysis and obtained explanations from management to assess the adequacy of the level of provision if any required for amounts considered recoverable.
We have identi3ed recognition of grant and its recoverability as a key audit matter because of the complexities in establishing the compliance with the eligibility conditions of the grant and judgement involved towards the assessment of its recoverability.

Independent Auditors' Report on the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements ofHimatsingka Seide Limited for the year ended 31 March 2021 (continued) AUDITOR'SRESPONSIBILITIES FOR THE AUDIT OF THE STANDALONE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalone 3nancialstatements 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 in3uence the economic decisions of users taken on thebasis of these standalone 3nancial statements. As part of an audit in accordance with SAswe exercise professional judgement and maintain professional skepticism throughout theaudit. We also:

• Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the standalone3nancial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit proceduresresponsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is su3cient 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 Company hasadequate internal 3nancial controls with reference to standalone 3nancial statements inplace and the operating e3ectiveness of such controls.

• Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonablenessof accounting estimates and related disclosures in the standalone 3nancial statements madeby the Management and Board of Directors.

• Conclude on the appropriateness of the Management and Board of Directors use ofthe going concern basis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether amaterial uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast signi3cant doubton the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a materialuncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in our Auditor's Report to therelated disclosures in the standalone 3nancial 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 standalone3nancial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalone 3nancialstatements 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 signi3cant audit 3ndings including anysigni3cant de3ciencies 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 signi3cance in the audit of the standalone 3nancial statementsof the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these mattersin our Auditors' Report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about thematter or when 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 bene3ts of such communication.
