Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company’sfinancial reporting process. Auditors’ Responsibility for the Audit of the StandaloneFinancial 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 arisefrom fraud 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 standalone financial statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgement andmaintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also: Identify and assess therisks of material misstatement of the standalone 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 international omissionsmisrepresentations or the override of internal control.

Obtain an understanding of internal financial control relevant to the audit in order todesign audit procedures that are appropriate in circumstances. Under Section 143(3)(i) ofthe Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the Company hasadequate internal financial controls system in place and operating effectiveness of suchcontrols.

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

Conclude on the appropriateness of management’s use of the going concern basis ofaccounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertaintyexists 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 statement 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 standalone financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the standalone financial statementsrepresent 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 our audit work and

(ii) to evaluate the effect of any identified misstatements in the standalone financialstatements.

We communicate with those charged with the governance regarding among other mattersthe planned 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 current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters inour auditor’s report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosures about thematter or when 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
