2. The company has not provided interest on term loans and funded interest term loanswith some banks since these banks have not charged interest on these accounts post suchaccounts becoming NPAs. The unaccounted interest liability in respect of the same for thefinancial year2018-19 is Rs.10.36 Cr. (Refer Note No.35 (ii) of Notes to Accounts)
Had the provision for the same been made the profits for the year and accumulatedlosses would have been reduced and increased respectively by Rs. 10.36cr.

Key Audit Matters
Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgement were of mostsignificance in our audit of the Financial Statements of the current period. These matterswere addressed in the context of our audit of the Financial Statements as a whole and informing our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters. Inaddition to the matter described in the Basis of Qualified Opinion section we havedetermined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to be communicated inour report.
|Key Audit Matters ||How our audit assessed Key audit matters |
|Revenue Recognition ||Our audit procedures included the following: |
|For the year ended March 31 2019 the Company has recognized revenue from contracts with customers amounting to 289.03 Crores. Revenue from contracts with customers is rec- ognized when control of the goods or services are transferred to the customer at an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The Company has generally concluded that as principal it typically controls the goods or services before transferring them to the customer. The variety of terms that define when control are transferred to the customer as well as the high value of the transactions give rise to the risk that revenue is not recognized in the correct period. Revenue is measured net of returns and allowances cash discounts trade discounts and volume rebates (collectively 'discount and rebates'). There is a risk that these discount and rebates are incorrectly recorded as it also requires a certain degree of estimation resulting in understatement of the associated expenses and accrual. Revenue is also an important element of how the Company measures its performance. The Company focuses on revenue as a key performance measure which could create an incentive for revenue to be recognized before the risk and rewards have been transferred. Accordingly due to the significant risk associated with revenue recognition in accordance with terms of Ind AS 115 'Revenue from contracts with customers' it was determined to be a key audit matter in our audit of the Ind AS financial statements. (Refer Notes on accounts No. 18) || Assessed the Company's revenue recognition policy prepared as per Ind AS 115 'Revenue from contracts with customers'. |
| || Assessed the design and tested the operating effectiveness of internal controls related to revenue recognition discounts and rebates. |
| || Performed sample tests of individual sales transaction and traced to sales invoices sales orders and other related documents. Further in respect of the samples checked that the revenue has been recognized as per the shipping terms. |
| || To test cut off selected sample of sales transactions made pre- and post-year end agreeing the period of revenue recognition to third party support such as transporter invoice and customer confirmation of receipt of goods. |
| || Tested the provision calculations related to management incentives discounts and rebates by agreeing a sample of amounts recognized to underlying arrangements with customers and other supporting documents. |
| || Obtained confirmations from customers on sample basis to support existence assertion of trade receivables and assessed the relevant disclosures made in the financial statements; to ensure revenue from contracts with customers are in accordance with the requirements of relevant accounting standards |
|Impairment of Assets || |
|Property plant and equipment includes assets that are related to the Unit I and II at Parwanoo. The operations at both the units were suspended since March 2014 as a result the man- agement has performed an impairment assessment as per the accounting policy stated in note A.15 to the Ind AS financial statements. Accordingly during the year Impairment loss with respect to Unit II has been provided and in respect to Unit I management is of the view that no impairment is required as on date. Our audit focused on this area because the assessment of recoverable value of the aforesaid assets of Unit I & unit II requires management to make a number of key judge- ments and estimates with respect to the future performance and profitability of the both units which involves judgements and estimates on future cash flows. Accordingly Impairment assessment of the Company's Unit I & Unit II has been considered as a key audit matter. || We assessed the management's controls over the assessment of the carrying value of Unit I & Unit II property plant and equipment to determine whether any asset impairment was required. |
| || We assessed the Company's valuation methodology applied in estimating the recoverable amount of the Company's both units. |
| || We tested the assumptions around the key drivers of the cash flow forecasts i.e. future growth rates discount rates used. |
| || Performed sensitivity analysis around the key assumptions used by management in impairment testing to understand the impact of reasonable changes in assumptions on the estimated recoverable amounts. |
|Refer Notes to accounts No. 42 to the Financial statements || Assessed the disclosures included in the financial statements in note42 to the Ind AS financial statements. |
|Evaluation of Uncertain tax Positions || |
|The company has material uncertain tax positions including matters under dispute which involves significant judgment to determine the possible outcome of these disputes. || Obtained details of completed tax assessments and demands as on 31/03/2019 from Management. |
| || We involved our expertise to challenge the management's underlying assumptions in estimating tax provision and the possible outcome of the disputes. |
|Refer Notes to accounts No.26 to the Financial statements || We have also considered legal precedence and other rulings in evaluating management's position on these uncertain tax positions. |

The Board of Directors is responsible for overseeing the Company's financial reportingprocess.
Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Ind As Financial statements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the Ind AS 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 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 Ind AS 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 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 financial controls system in place and the operating effectiveness ofsuch controls.
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 Company'sability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty existswe are required to draw attention in our auditor's 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 auditor'sreport. 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 Ind AS financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the Ind AS financial statementsrepresent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.
We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among othermatters the planned scope and timing of the
audit and significant audit findings including any significant deficiencies ininternal control that we identify during our audit.
We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we havecomplied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicatewith them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear onour independence and where applicable related safeguards.
From the matters communicated with those charged with governance we determinethose matters that were of most significance in the audit of the Ind AS financialstatements for the financial year ended March 31 2019 and are therefore the key auditmatters. We describe these matters in our auditor's report unless law or regulationprecludes public disclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances wedetermine that a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverseconsequences of doing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interestbenefits of such communication.

Our audit of internal financial controls over financial reporting includedobtaining an understanding of internal financial controls over financial reportingassessing the risk that a material weakness exists and testing and evaluating the designand operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting reference to theseFinancial statements
A company's internal financial control over financial reporting is a process designedto provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and thepreparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generallyaccepted accounting principles. A company's internal financial control over financialreporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance ofrecords that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions anddispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance thattransactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements inaccordance with generally accepted accounting principles and that receipts andexpenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations ofmanagement and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regardingprevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition use or disposition of thecompany's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting withreference to these Financial Statements
Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financialreporting including the possibility of collusion or improper management override ofcontrols material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls over financialreporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial controlover financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or thatthe degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In our opinion the Company has in all material respects an adequate internalfinancial controls system over financial reporting and such internal financial controlsover financial reporting were operating effectively as at March 31 2019 based on theinternal control over financial reporting criteria established by the Company consideringthe essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit ofInternal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute of CharteredAccountants of India.
