Basis for Opinion
We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing(SAs) specified under section 143(10) of the Act. Our responsibilities under thoseStandards are further described in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of theFinancial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Company inaccordance with the Code of Ethics issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants ofIndia together with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of theStandalone Ind AS financial statements under the provisions of the Act and the Rulesthereunder and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance withthese requirements and the Code of Ethics. We believe that the audit evidence we haveobtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on theStandalone Financial Statements.
Key Audit Matters
Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgmentwere of most significance in our audit of the Standalone Ind AS financial statements ofthe current period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of theStandalone Ind AS financial statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon andwe do not provide a separate opinion on these matters. We have determined the mattersdescribed below to be the key audit matters to be communicated in our report.
|Key Audit matters ||How our audit addressed the key audit matter |
|1 Revenue from sale of products:- ||Principal Audit Procedures |
|The Company recognises revenues when controls of the goods 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. ||Following procedures have been performed to address this key audit matter: |
|The terms of sales arrangements including the timing of transfer of control delivery specifications including incoterms in case of exports create complexity and judgement in determining timing of sales revenues. || Considered the Company's revenue recognition policy and its compliance in terms of Ind AS 115 'Revenue from contracts with customers'. |
|The risk is therefore that revenue may not be recognised in the correct period in accordance with Ind AS 115. Accordingly due to the risk associated with revenue recognition it was determined to be a key audit matter in our audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements. || Assessed the design and tested the operating effectiveness of internal controls related to revenue recognition. |
| || Performed sample test of individual sales transaction and traced to sales invoices sales orders and other related documents. Further in respect of the samples tested checked that the revenue has been recognised as per the incoterms / when the conditions for revenue recognitions are satisfied. |
| || Selected sample of sales transactions made pre and post year end agreed the period of revenue recognition to underlying documents. |
| || Assessed the relevant disclosures made within the standalone Ind AS financial statements. |
|2 Financial Instruments - Hedge Accounting ||Principal Audit Procedures |
|The company uses derivative financial instruments - forward contracts to hedge against foreign currency risks arising from their ordinary business activities. ||As a part of our audit among other things we assessed the contractual and financial parameters and evaluated the accounting treatment including the effects on equity and profit or loss of the hedging relationships. |
|Management's hedging policy is documented in corresponding internal guidelines and serves as the basis for these transactions. ||We also evaluated the Company's internal control system with regard to derivative financial instruments including the internal activities to monitor compliance with the hedging policy. |
|Currency risk arises primarily from sales and transactions denominated in foreign currencies. The means of limiting this risk is by entering into currency forwards. ||In addition for the purpose of auditing the fair value measurement of financial instruments we also assessed the methods of calculation employed on the basis of market data. |
|Derivatives are measured at fair value as of the balance sheet date. Insofar the financial instruments used by the Company are effective hedges of future cash flows in the context of hedging pursuant to the requirements of IND AS 109 the effective portion of the changes in fair value is recognized in other comprehensive income over the duration of the hedging relationships until the maturity of the hedged cash flows (cash flows hedges). ||In addition to evaluating the internal control system we obtained bank confirmations for the hedging instruments in order to assess completeness. |
|These matters were of particular importance for our audit due to the high complexity and number of transactions. || |
|The Company's disclosures on hedge accounting are contained in Note No 3.9 and Note No. 41 ||With regard to the expected cash flows and the assessment of the effectiveness of hedges we essentially conducted a retrospective assessment of past hedging levels. In doing so we were able to satisfy ourselves that the estimates and assumptions made by management were substantiated and sufficiently documented. |

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone FinancialStatements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether theStandalone Ind AS financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatementwhether due 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 thefinancial 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 theaudit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Undersection 143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion onwhether the company has adequate internal financial controls with reference to financialstatements in place and the operating effectiveness of such controls.
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 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 financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate tomodify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to thedate of our auditor's report. However future events or conditions may cause the Companyto cease to continue as a going concern.
Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of thefinancial statements including the disclosures and whether the financial statementsrepresent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.
We communicate with those charged with governance regarding amongother matters the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findingsincluding any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during ouraudit.
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 for the financial year ended March 31 2021 and are therefore the keyaudit matters. 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.

The Company's management 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 issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants 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 its business including adherence tocompany's policies the safeguarding of its assets the prevention and detection of fraudsand errors the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records and the timelypreparation of reliable financial information as required under the Act.

ThoseStandards and the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethical requirements and planand perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether adequate internalfinancial controls over financial reporting was established and maintained and if suchcontrols operated effectively in all material respects.
Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence aboutthe adequacy of the internal financial controls system over financial reporting and theiroperating effectiveness.
Our audit of internal financial controls over financial reportingincluded obtaining an understanding of internal financial controls over financialreporting assessing the risk that a material weakness exists and testing and evaluatingthe design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
A company's internal financial control over financial reporting is aprocess designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financialreporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordancewith generally accepted accounting principles. A company's internal financial control overfinancial reporting 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 authorizations of management and directors of thecompany; and
3) Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timelydetection of unauthorized 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
Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls overfinancial reporting including the possibility of collusion or improper managementoverride of controls material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not bedetected. Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls overfinancial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financialcontrol over financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditionsor that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In our opinion the Company has in all material respects an adequateinternal financial controls system over financial reporting with reference to theseStandalone Financial Statements and such internal financial controls over financialreporting were operating effectively as at 31st March 2021 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.
