ANNEXURE B TO THE INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT OF EVEN DATE TO THEMEMBERS OF HIND RECTIFIERS LIMITED ON THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED31ST MARCH 2022
Report on the internal financial controls with reference to theaforesaid standalone financial statements under Clause (i) of Sub-section 3 ofSection 143 of the Companies Act 2013
(Referred to in paragraph 3(f) under 'Report on Other Legal andRegulatory Requirements' section of our report of even date)
1. In conjunction with our audit of the financial statements of HindRectifiers Limited ("the Company") as at and for the year ended 31st March2022 we have audited the internal financial controls over financial reporting (IFCoFR) ofthe Company as of that date.
Management's Responsibility for Internal Financial Controls
2. The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for establishing andmaintaining internal financial controls based on the internal control over financialreporting criteria established by the Company considering the essential components ofinternal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls overFinancial Reporting (the "Guidance Note") issued by the Institute of CharteredAccountants of India (ICAI). These responsibilities include the design implementation andmaintenance of adequate internal financial controls that were operating effectively forensuring the orderly and efficient conduct of the Company's business including adherenceto Company's policies the safeguarding of its assets the prevention and detection offrauds and errors the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records and the timelypreparation of reliable financial information as required under the Act.
3. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's IFCoFRbased on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditingissued by ICAI and deemed to be prescribed under section 143(10) of the Act to the extentapplicable to an audit of IFCoFR and the Guidance Note issued by the ICAI. Those Standardsand the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan andperform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether adequate IFCoFR wereestablished and maintained and if such controls operated effectively in all materialrespects.
4. Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidenceabout the adequacy of the IFCoFR and their operating effectiveness. Our audit of IFCoFRincluded obtaining an understanding of IFCoFR assessing the risk that a material weaknessexists and testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internalcontrol based on the assessed risk. The procedures selected depend on the auditor'sjudgment including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financialstatements whether due to fraud or error.
5. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficientand appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the Company's IFCoFR.
Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
6. A company's IFCoFR is a process designed to provide reasonableassurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation offinancial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally acceptedaccounting principles. A Company's IFCoFR includes those policies and procedures that
(1) pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detailaccurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of theCompany;
(2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded asnecessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generallyaccepted accounting principles and that receipts and expenditures of the Company arebeing made only in accordance with authorisations of management and directors of theCompany; and
(3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timelydetection of unauthorised acquisition use or disposition of the Company's assets thatcould have a material effect on the financial statements.
Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls over FinancialReporting
7. Because of the inherent limitations of IFCoFR including thepossibility of collusion or improper management override of controls materialmisstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected. Also projections ofany evaluation of the IFCoFR to future periods are subject to the risk that IFCoFR maybecome inadequate because of changes in conditions or that the degree of compliance withthe policies or procedures may deteriorate.
8. In our opinion the Company has in all material respects adequateinternal financial controls with reference to financial statements and such internalfinancial controls over financial reporting were operating effectively as at 31st March2022 based on the internal control over financial reporting criteria established by theCompany considering the essential components of internal control stated in the GuidanceNote issued by the ICAI.
