1. The Company operates internationally and portion of the business is transacted inseveral currencies and consequently the Company is exposed to foreign exchange risk.Foreign currency exchange rate exposure through its sales are partly balanced bypurchasing of goods commodities and services in the respective currencies. The balanceforeign currency exchange rate exposure is hedged through derivative like foreign exchangeforward contracts (Refer Note No. 52 to the standalone financial statements). We assessedthe foreign exchange risk management policies adopted by the Company. The Company managesrisk through a treasury department which formulates risk management objectives andpolicies which are reviewed by the senior management Audit Committee and Board ofDirectors. Our audit approach was a combination of test of internal controls andsubstantive procedures to evaluate chances of minimising the risk involved.

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.

Responsibilities of Management and those charged with Governance for the StandaloneFinancial Statements

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in section134(5) of the Act with respect to the preparation of these standalone financial statementsthat give a true and fair view of the financial position financial performance changesin equity and cash flows of the Company in accordance with the accounting principlesgenerally accepted in India including the Accounting Standards specified under section133 of the Act.

In preparing the financial statements management is responsible for assessing theCompany's ability to continue as a going concern disclosing as applicable mattersrelated to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless managementeither intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations or has no realisticalternative but to do so.

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

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the 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 financial statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also:

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statementswhether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsive to thoserisks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis forour opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud ishigher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusion forgeryintentional 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 the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether thecompany has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operatingeffectiveness of such controls.

Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness ofaccounting estimates and related disclosures made by management. Conclude on theappropriateness of management's use of the going concern basis of accounting and based onthe audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertainty exists related to events orconditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company's ability to continue as a goingconcern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists we are required to

draw attention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures in the financialstatements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusionsare based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor's report. Howeverfuture events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern.

Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the financial statementsincluding the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent the underlyingtransactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.

Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the standalone financial statementsthat individually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may be influenced. We considerquantitative materiality and qualitative factors in (i) planning the scope of our auditwork and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effect of anyidentified misstatements in the financial statements.

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 related safeguards.

From the matters communicated with those charged with governance we determine thosematters that were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements of thecurrent period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in ourauditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter orwhen 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 benefits of such communication.

We have audited the internal financial controls over financial reporting of Indo CountIndustries Limited ("the Company”) as of March 31 2020 in conjunction with ouraudit of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements of the Company for the year ended onthat date.

We conducted our audit in accordancewith the Guidance Note and the Standards on Auditing issued by ICAI and deemed to beprescribed under section 143(10) of the Act to the extent applicable to an audit ofinternal financial controls both applicable to an audit of Internal Financial Controlsand both issued by the ICAI. Those Standards and the Guidance Note require that we complywith ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assuranceabout whether adequate internal financial controls over financial reporting was

Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacy ofthe internal financial controls system over financial reporting and their operatingeffectiveness.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting

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:

a) pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately andfairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company;

b) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permitpreparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accountingprinciples and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only inaccordance with authorisations of management and directors of the Company; and

c) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection ofunauthorised acquisition use or disposition of the Company's assets that could have amaterial effect on the financial statements.

Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting

Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financialreporting including the possibility

of collusion or improper management override of controls material misstatements due toerror or fraud may occur and not be detected. Also projections of any evaluation of theinternal financial controls over financial reporting to future periods are subject to therisk that the internal financial control over financial reporting may become inadequatebecause of changes in conditions or that the degree of compliance with the policies orprocedures may deteriorate.

Opinion

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 2020 based on theinternal control over financial reporting criteria established by the Company consideringthe essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note issued by theICAI.
