Basis for Opinion

We conducted our audit of the standalone financial statements inaccordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) issued by the Institute of CharteredAccountants of India (ICAI). Our responsibilities under those Standards are furtherdescribed in the Auditor's Responsibility for the Audit of the Standalone FinancialStatements section of our report. We are independent of the Trust in accordance with theCode of Ethics issued by the ICAI and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilitiesin accordance with these requirements and the ICAI's Code of Ethics. We believe thatthe audit evidence obtained by us is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for ouraudit opinion on the standalone financial statements.

Emphasis of Matter

We draw attention to Note 9.2 which describes the presentation of“Unit Capital” as “Equity” to comply with InVIT Regulations. Ouropinion is not modified in respect of this matter.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgmentwere of most significance in our audit of the standalone financial statements of thecurrent year. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the standalonefinancial statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not providea separate opinion on these matters. We have determined the matters described below to bethe key audit matters to be communicated in our report.

Key Audit Matters Auditor's Response
1 Fair valuation of Non-convertible debentures (NCDs) measured at FVTPL Principal audit procedures performed:
The valuation of Non-convertible debentures (NCDs) investment in Pipeline Infrastructure Limited (“PIL” “SPV”) (formerly known as Pipeline Infrastructure Private Limited) was key area of audit focus due to the degree of complexity involved in valuing the NCDs and significant judgement and valuation assumption made by the Investment Manager. We have performed the walkthrough of the valuation process and tested the design and operating effectiveness of key controls related to the recording and fair valuation of NCDs outstanding as on balance sheet date and fair valuation impact for the year.
As at March 31 2021 carrying amount of NCDs outstanding is Rs. 7424 crores and fair value gain on NCDs for the year was Rs. 76 crores. These NCDs are measured at fair value and classified as level 3 instrument. We evaluated the Company's fair valuation specialist's competence and independence to perform the valuation.
We assessed the reasonableness of the estimated future cash flow projections discount rate and other financial input considered in valuation with the underlying agreement estimated credit ratings of such instrument and issuer and related future interest rate curves.
Refer to note 19 to the standalone financial statements. We have involved internal fair valuation specialist to independently fair value the NCDs on the balance sheet date which includes evaluating the discount rate to be used in valuation and the rate at which PIL will be able to refinance external debt as per market condition.
The determination of fair value involves significant unobservable inputs related to terms of refinancing of external loans and its impact on the Equated Yearly Instalment of internal NCDs and its resultant impact on fair valuation of debentures. Also there is a reasonable degree of judgment involved in determining future interest rate on debentures issued by Pipeline Infrastructure Limited. Considering the significance of the amount of NCD's investment recognised in the balance sheet impact of fair valuation on the statement of Profit and Loss sensitivity associated with future assumptions and complex terms of the contracts it is identified as a key audit matter. We compared the fair value determined by the Company's fair valuation specialist and our internal fair valuation specialist to determine same to be reasonable.
2 Computation and disclosures as prescribed in the InvIT Regulations relating to Standalone Statement of Net Assets and Standalone Statement of Total Returns at Fair Value Principal audit procedures performed among others:
As per the provisions of InvIT Regulations the Trust is required to disclose Statement of Net Assets at Fair Value and Statement of Total Returns at Fair Value. Refer page no. 9 of the standalone financial statements We have performed the walkthrough of the management valuation process and tested the design and operating effectiveness of key controls related sharing of input to management expert/valuer as well as control over computation and disclosures as prescribed in the InvIT Regulations relating to Statement of Net Assets and Total Returns at Fair Value.
“Disclosure pursuant to SEBI circulars of the Standalone Financial Statements”. We tested the reasonableness of inputs shared by independent expert on projection of gas quantity over projection period. We evaluated the Company's experts' competence and independence to perform the projection of gas quantity.
For the purpose of above statements fair value is determined by forecasting and discounting future cashflows. The inputs to the valuation models are taken from observable markets where possible but where this is not feasible a degree of judgement is required in establishing fair values. We obtained the independent valuer's valuation reports to obtain an understanding of the source of information used by the independent valuer in determining these significant judgments and estimates.
Judgements include considerations of inputs such as gas quantity discount rate terminal growth and inflation rates etc. Since the fair valuation involves forecasting and judgements the aforementioned statements as per InvIT Regulation are determined to be a key audit matter in our audit of the standalone financial statements. We tested the reasonableness of inputs shared by management with external valuer by comparing it to source information used in preparing the inputs.
We evaluated the reasonableness of management's forecasted by comparing it with previous forecast and changes in forecast are reviewed and approved by the Investment Manager.
With the assistance of our fair valuation specialist we evaluated the reasonableness of valuation assumption such as terminal growth rate discount rate and inflation rate.
We have tested the arithmetical accuracy of computation in the Statement of Net Assets and Total Returns at Fair Value and disclosure as per requirement of InvIT Regulation.

Auditor's Responsibility for the Audit of the Standalone FinancialStatements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether thestandalone financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whetherdue to fraud or error and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion.Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an auditconducted in accordance with SAs will always detect a material misstatement when itexists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material ifindividually or in the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence theeconomic decisions of users taken on the basis of these standalone financial statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professionaljudgment and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also:

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of thestandalone financial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform auditprocedures responsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient andappropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a materialmisstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraudmay involve collusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the overrideof internal control.

Obtain an understanding of internal financial control relevant to theaudit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances butnot for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Trust'sinternal control.

Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and thereasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.

Conclude on the appropriateness of Management's use of the goingconcern basis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a materialuncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on theTrust's ability to continue as a going concern.

If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists we are required todraw attention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures in the standalonefinancial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Ourconclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor'sreport. However future events or conditions may cause the Trust to cease to continue as agoing concern.

Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of thestandalone financial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalonefinancial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner thatachieves fair presentation.

Obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding the Standalonefinancial statements of the Trust to express an opinion on the standalone financialstatements.

Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the standalonefinancial statements that individually or in aggregate makes it probable that theeconomic decisions of a reasonably knowledgeable user of the standalone financialstatements may be influenced. We consider quantitative materiality and qualitative factorsin

(i) planning the scope of our audit work and in evaluating the resultsof our work; and

(ii) to evaluate the effect of any identified misstatements in thestandalone financial statements.

We communicate with those charged with governance regarding amongother matters the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findingsthat we identify during our audit.

We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that wehave complied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and tocommunicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thoughtto bear on our independence and where applicable related safeguards.

From the matters communicated with those charged with governance wedetermine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the standalonefinancial statements of the current year and are therefore the key audit matters. Wedescribe these matters in our auditor's report unless law or regulation precludespublic disclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determinethat a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences ofdoing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.
