KeyAudit Matters

Keyaudit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the financial statements of the current year. 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. Wehave determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to be communicatedin our report.

Key Audit Matter

Auditor’s Response

Assessment of the Company’s ability to continue as Going Concern

Audit Procedure included but not limited to the followings:

(Refer to Notes No. 39.6)

 

 

- Obtained an understanding of the management’s process of assessment / evaluation of the going concern basis of accounting and evaluated and tested operating effectiveness of the controls around this process.

There are accumulated losses in the Company since earlier years and the same has resulted in the erosion of substantial net worth of the Company. The Company has profits during- the current and earlier years however there are still some concerns due to accumulated losses and defaults in the repayment of its dues to the lenders due to the financial crisis being faced by the Company. However the financial statements have been prepared on going concern basis based on management’s assessment. The said management assessment involves making a judgement at a particular point of time about inherently uncertain future outcomes of events or conditions and the factors relevant to this judgement involves high degree of uncertainty and subsequent events may result in outcomes that are inconsistent with the judgments that were reasonable at the time they were made. As Auditor our responsibilities are to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding and conclude on the appropriateness of mangements’s use of the going concern basis however as the potential effects of inherent limitations on the auditor’s ability to detect material misstatements are greater than for future events or conditions that may cause an entity to cease to continue as a going concern the Auditor cannot predict such future events or conditions and therefore the evaluation and assessment of the going concern basis of accounting as assessed by the management involved signiffcant level of subjectivity judgment and estimation as detailed above and therefore the same has been considered as Key Audit Matter by us during our audit.

Inquired the management as to its knowledge of events or  conditions and related business risks beyond the period of assessment used by management that may cast doubts on the Company’s ability to continue as going concern.

 

- Evaluated the information obtained in connection with going concern basis in conjunction with other information obtained throughout the audit that may impact our assessment of the appropriateness of the management’s use of the going concern basis of accounting.

 

- Obtained information about management’s plans to consider whether it is likely that the adverse effects will be mitigated for the foreseeable future and evaluated the likelihood of effective implementation of such plans.

 

Considered the bases on which the plans have been prepared giving consideration as to whether they conform with facts already known and to available independent evidence which included the response of the bankers / lenders with respect to the financial support being / to be provided by them to the Company.

 

Based on our above audit procedures we have not come across any circumstances that may require any further comments on the appropriatemness of mangements’s use of the going concern basis.

Property Plant & Equipment

Audit Procedure included but not limited to the followings:

(Refer to Note No. 4 read with the Accounting Policy No. 3.1)

- Obtained an understanding of the management’s process and evaluated and tested operating effectiveness of the control around identification of the useful lives of the assets.

The property plant and equipment (except the land) are depreciated on straight line / written down value basis over their useful life as estimated by the management and the land is stated at its fair value. The asset’s residual values and useful lives and land’s fair value are reviewed at the end of each reporting period / periodically and necessary adjustments are made accordingly wherever required. The useful life of the assets and fair value of the land are estimated by the management based on usage pattern / trend technological developments and level of wear and tear etc. and based on the independent valuers’ reports which involve high degree of the estimation and judgement and could affect their reported amounts in the financial statements in case of any improper  estimation / valuation. Considering that the property plant & equipment comprise the substantial part of the total assets of the Company (66.02% of total assets) and any change in their reported amounts due to any improper estimations / valuation could result in substantial impact on the financial position of

- Obtained the independent valuers’ reports for fair value of the land and understiang of their process of the fair valuation.

 

- Review of the basic key assumptions and use / comparison of the same to the historic performance of the respective group of assets and approved estimates.

 

- Review and application of the key assumptions its usage with the impairment models and past history of the wear and tear levels and replacement life of the assets etc. - Review of the actual level of performance of the assets and comparison thereof with the earlier estimates and actual results considering the technological changes / improvements etc.

Company the same has been considered as Key Audit Matter by us during our audit.

Based on our above audit procedures we have not come across any circumstances that may require any material adjustments to the reported amounts of the property plant & equipment.

Inventory of Finished and Stock – in – Process

Audit Procedure included but not limited to the followings:

(Refer to Note No. 11 read with the Accounting Policy No. 3.3.b)

- Obtained an understanding of the Company’s process of valuation of the stock which is done through the computer software.

The inventory of finished goods and stock in process is valued  at the lower of cost and net realizable value and cost include cost of inputs conversion costs and other costs incurred in bringing finished goods and stock-in-process to their present  location and condition.

- Tested the software with respect to access and applications controls pertaining to the allocation of the raw-materials / inputs to various stages of productions.

This inventory comprises of diversified range and quality of  yarn and cloth / fabrics and its costing / valuation depends on the cost of each of such quality of the item as per the specification received from the customers and its stage of manufacturing quality and date of purchase of the raw material and other inputs and efficiency of the manufacturing facility and due to highly complex process specially considering that the Company is running a composite textile mill; to fairly estimate the valuation of such stock it involves signiffcant level of subjectivity judgment and estimation. Considering that the Company is having substantial inventory of Finished Goods and Stock in Process (15% of total assets of the Company) and the valuation thereof involves signiffcant level of subjectivity judgment and estimation as detailed above the same has been considered as Key Audit Matter by us during our audit.

- Performed substantive procedures to test the reasonableness of the cost allocation methods and basis for allocation of various conversion costs including the direct and indirect cost.

Those Board of Directors are also responsible foroverseeing the Company’s financial reporting process.

Auditor’sResponsibilities for the audit of the Financial Statements

Ourobjectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements as awhole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or error and to issue anauditor’s report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level ofassurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAs willalways detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraudor error and are considered material if individually or in the aggregate they couldreasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis ofthese financial statements.

Aspart of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment and maintainprofessional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:

-Identifyand assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements whether due tofraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks and obtainaudit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. Therisk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for oneresulting from error as fraud may involve collusion forgery intentional omissionsmisrepresentations or the override of internal control.

-Obtainan understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to design auditprocedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3) (i) of theCompanies Act 2013 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.

-Evaluatethe appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accountingestimates and related disclosures made by management.

-Concludeon the appropriateness of management’s use of the going concern basis of accountingand based on the audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertainty exists relatedto events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company’s ability tocontinue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists we arerequired to draw attention in our auditor’s report to the related disclosures in thefinancial 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 Company to cease to continue asa going concern.

-Evaluatethe overall presentation structure and content of the financial statements including thedisclosures and whether the financial statements represent the underlying transactionsand events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.

Wecommunicate with those charged with governance regarding among other matters the plannedscope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings including any significantdeficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit. We also provide thosecharged with governance with a statement that we have complied with relevant ethicalrequirements regarding independence and to communicate with them all relationships andother matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on our independence and whereapplicable related safeguards.

Fromthe matters communicated with those charged with governance we determine those mattersthat were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements of current periodand are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in our auditor’sreport unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter or when inextremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not be communicated in ourreport because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonably be expected tooutweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
