Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the standalone financial statements of the current period.These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the standalone financialstatements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide aseparate opinion on these matters. We have determined the matters described below to bethe key audit matters to be communicated in our report.

Key Audit Matter Description Response to Key Audit Matter
Revenue Recognition Principal Audit Procedures
Reference may be made to Note 58(10) of significant accounting policies and Note 22 and 29 to the standalone financial statements of the Company. Our audit procedures relating to revenue comprised of test of controls and substantive procedures including the following:
Revenue recognition is inherently an area of audit risk which we have focused on mainly covering the aspects of cut off. i. We performed procedures to assess the design and internal controls established by the management and tested the operating effectiveness of relevant controls related to the recognition of revenue.
Considering the above impact of Ind AS 115 and cut-off are considered by us as key audit matters. ii. Selected a sample of continuing and new contracts and tested the operating effectiveness of the internal control relating to identification of the distinct performance obligations and determination of transaction price. We carried out a combination of procedures involving enquiry and observation reperformance and inspection of evidence in respect of operation of these controls.
iii. We have tested on a sample basis whether specific revenue transactions around the reporting date has been recognised in the appropriate period by comparing the transactions selected with relevant underlying documentation including goods delivery notes customer acknowledgement/proof of acceptance and the terms of sales.
iv. We have also validated subsequent credit notes and sales returns up to the date of this Report to ensure the appropriateness and accuracy of the revenue recognition.
v. We tested journal entries on a sample basis to identify any unusual or irregular items.
vi. We also considered the adequacy of the disclosures in Company’s financial statements in relation to Ind AS 115 and were satisfied they meet the disclosure requirements.
Conclusion
Based on the procedures performed above we did not find any material exceptions with regards to timing of revenue recognition and disclosure requirement of Ind AS 115 in the financial statements.
Impairment in Trade Receivables Principal Audit Procedures
Reference may be made to Note 5 to the standalone financial statements of the Company. We have performed the following procedures in relation to the recoverability of trade receivables and computing allowance for credit losses:
The Company is exposed to potential risk of financial loss when there is the risk of default on receivables from the customers for which the Management would make specific provision against individual balances with reference to the recoverable amount. Such provision/allowance for credit losses is based on historical experience adjusted to reflect current and estimated future economic conditions. • Tested the effectiveness of the control over the methodology for computing the allowance for credit losses including consideration of the economic conditions and completeness and accuracy of information used in the estimation of probability of default.
For the purpose of impairment assessment significant judgements and assumptions including the credit risks of customers the timing and amount of realization of these receivables are required for the identification of impairment events and the determination of the impairment charge. Tested the accuracy of aging of trade receivables at year end on a sample basis.
In view of the above we identified allowance for credit losses as a key audit matter since significant judgement is exercised in calculating the expected credit losses/impairment charge. • Obtained a list of outstanding receivables and identified any debtors with financial difficulty through discussion with management.
• Assessed the recoverability of the unsettled receivables on a sample basis through our evaluation of management’s assessment with reference to the credit profile of the customers historical payment pattern of customers publicly available information and latest correspondence with customers and to consider if any additional provision should be made;
• Tested subsequent settlement of trade receivables after the balance sheet date on a sample basis.
Conclusion
Based on the above procedures we found the key judgements and assumptions used by management in the recoverability assessment of trade receivables to be supportable based on the available evidence and consequently are satisfied on the sufficiency of provisions/allowance for credit losses.
Allowance for inventory obsolescence Our audit procedures in respect of this matter included:
Refer to note 58(8)(b) of the standalone financial statements. Understood management policy and process for identification of providing of obsolete inventory including performing testing of controls to assess the effectiveness of the same. Reviewed the management’s judgement applied in calculating the value of inventory obsolescence taking into consideration the expected changes in auto industry and management assessment of the present and future condition of the inventory. Assessed the adequacy of the relevant disclosure in the notes to the financial statements.
The Company holds significant inventories and records allowance for identified and estimated inventory obsolescence. Conclusion
As at 31st March 2022 the Company had inventories of Rs.5285.29 lakhs. Based on the above procedures performed we consider the provision for inventory obsolescence to be reasonable.
The Company provides for obsolescence of Inventory considering the inventory on hand existing/probable customer orders the production plan expected utilisation in production and expected sales. Further the estimates are validated by technological changes/legislative changes in the auto business and trends of the obsolescence in the past. The obsolescence covers inventory under Raw material work-in-progress and finished goods. Given the significant judgment involved in management’s assessment the allowance for inventory obsolescence is identified as a key audit matter

The Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company’s financialreporting process.

Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalonefinancial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraudor error and to issue an auditor’s report that includes our opinion. Reasonableassurance is a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted inaccordance with SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists.Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if individuallyor in the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisionsof users taken on the basis of these standalone 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 standalonefinancial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit proceduresresponsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient 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 Companies Act 2013 we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whetherthe company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operatingeffectiveness of such 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 concernbasis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a materialuncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on theCompany’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 financial 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 conditionsmay cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern..

• Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the standalonefinancial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalone financialstatements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.

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 standalone financial statements may be influenced. Weconsider quantitative materiality and qualitative factors in (i) planning the scope of ouraudit work and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effect ofany identified misstatements in the standalone 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 standalone financial statementsof the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these mattersin our auditor’s report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure aboutthe matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should notbe communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so wouldreasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
