Emphasis of Matter

4. We draw your attention to Note 60 of the Standalone FinancialStatements which describes the management's assessment of the financial impact of theevents arising out of Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic for which a definitive assessmentof the impact in the subsequent period is dependent upon the circumstances as they evolve.Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.

Key audit matters

5. Key audit matters are those matters that in our professionaljudgment were of most significance in our audit of the Standalone Financial Statements ofthe current period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of theStandalone Financial Statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we donot provide a separate opinion on these matters.

5.1 Assessment of the carrying value of investment in and loans grantedto a subsidiary Jindal ITF Limited (Refer to note 3.6 and note 61 to the StandaloneFinancial Statements)

Description of Key Audit Matter

The Company has an investment of Rs. 39696.60 lakhs and has advancedloans aggregating Rs. 119305.22 lakhs to its subsidiary Jindal ITF Limited(‘subsidiary') as at March 31 2021. The subsidiary had entered into a contract witha public sector undertaking (‘PSU') for transporting imported coal to one of thePSU's power generating stations. The contract was for a period of seven years and thesubsidiary was the sole transporter and accordingly had made significant investments todevelop the facility. The contract had a clause for compensation in case the supply waslesser than the minimum guaranteed quantity (‘MGQ') mentioned in the contract and hadspecific clauses to be adhered to by both the parties before terminating the contract.

The PSU stopped taking the supplies during the first year of operationand refused to pay compensation towards MGQ and terminated the contract subsequently. Thematter was referred to arbitration where the arbitrator had awarded an interim award infavour of the subsidiary amounting to Rs. 35631.18 lakhs relating to first 2 years of MGQwhich was paid by the PSU. Subsequently the Arbitrator issued the final order in favourof the subsidiary awarding Rs. 189108 lakhs plus interest and applicable taxes.

The PSU has filed an appeal with Hon'ble High Court of Delhi againstthe final arbitration order. The Hon'ble High Court passed an interim order directing thePSU to pay Rs. 50000 lakhs as an interim compensation which was paid by the PSU.Presently the matter is sub-judice before Hon'ble High Court of Delhi. The Management inconsultation with their legal counsel on the likely outcome of the case has assessed thatthere will not be any negative impact on carrying amount of investments and loansincluding interest thereon given by the Company to the subsidiary and the same arerecoverable.

This has been determined as a key audit matter since the investmentmade and loans granted by the Company to the subsidiary are material to the StandaloneFinancial Statements and the subsidiary is currently having insignificant operations.Further the recovery of investment and loan granted depends on the ultimate recovery ofthe remaining compensation from the PSU by the subsidiary.

How our audit addressed the key audit matter

• Discussed the matter with the management and obtained anunderstanding of the matter.

• Evaluating appropriateness of the accounting policy of theCompany in respect of impairment assessment of equity investments.

• Obtained updates over the legal case and the proceedings thattook place during the year.

• Reviewed the contract between the subsidiary and the PSU tocorroborate the matters stated in the appeal and details of the claim filed by thesubsidiary with the Arbitration Tribunal and the final arbitration order issued in thisregard.

• Performed test of design and operating effectiveness of controlsover recoverability of the investment and the loans given to the subsidiary with specificfocus on whether an impairment provision needs to be recognized.

• Evaluated the recoverability of the said loans and investmentsconsidering the arbitration order decided in favour of the subsidiary.

• Discussed the matter with the Company's external legal counseland evaluated the opinion issued by them which supports the subsidiary's position.

Based on the procedures above the management's assessment of thecarrying value of the investment and loans was considered to be reasonable.

5.2 Appropriateness of assessment of Impairment in the carrying valueof investment and recoverability of loan to a wholly owned subsidiary Jindal Saw HoldingsFZE

(Refer to note 3.6 and note 62 to the Standalone Financial Statements)

The Company had made investments of Rs. 12060.82 lakhs and alsoadvanced loans aggregating Rs. 15862.69 lakhs to Jindal Saw Holdings FZE(‘Subsidiary') as at March 31 2021. The Subsidiary has been incurring losses and itsnet worth is lower than the carrying value of investment. This is an indicator ofpotential impairment to the carrying value of investment and the loans.

The management has obtained an external valuation expert's report (the"management expert") on valuation of the said subsidiary using the discountedcash flow model in order to determine the recoverable value for assessing theappropriateness of carrying amount of the investment/loans based on which the managementconcluded that no adjustment is required to the carrying amount.

This has been determined as a key audit matter since the investmentmade and the loans granted to the Subsidiary are material to the Standalone FinancialStatements of the Company and significant judgement is required in selecting anappropriate discount rate growth rates and the terminal value determined in estimatingthe discounted cash flows used by the Management's expert to support the carrying value.

How our audit addressed the key audit matter

• Understanding and evaluating the design and testing theoperating effectiveness of the Company's controls over monitoring the performance of theSubsidiary and performing an impairment assessment.

• Evaluating appropriateness of the accounting policy of theCompany in respect of impairment assessment of equity investments.

• Obtained the management expert's valuation report and discussedthe same with the management and the expert to understand the assumptions including thediscount rate and the growth rates underlying in the forecast.

• Assessed the reasonableness of the growth rates used in theforecast with the current orders in hand and historical growth rates.

• Assessed with the involvement of auditor's expert theappropriateness of the discount rate and terminal value of the subsidiary used in thevaluation report of the Management's expert.

• Performed sensitivity tests over the key assumptions andconsidered them to be within a reasonable and foreseeable range.

• Assessed the historical accuracy of the forecasts by comparingthe forecast used in the prior year valuation with the actual performance in the currentyear. In case the actual performance was lower than the forecast we obtained the reasonsthereof from the management.

• Tested the mathematical accuracy of the underlying calculations.

As a result of the above audit procedures the Management's assessmentof impairment in the carrying value of investment and recoverability of the loan wasconsidered to be reasonable.

Auditor's responsibilities for the audit of the StandaloneFinancial Statements

9. Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether theStandalone Financial Statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whetherdue 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.

10. As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exerciseprofessional judgment and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also:

• Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of theStandalone Financial Statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform auditprocedures responsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient andappropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a materialmisstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraudmay involve collusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the overrideof internal control.

• 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 StandaloneFinancial Statements 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 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 conditions maycause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern.

• Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of theStandalone Financial Statements including the disclosures and whether the StandaloneFinancial Statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner thatachieves fair presentation.

11. 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.

12. We also provide those charged with governance with a statement thatwe have 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.

13. From the matters communicated with those charged with governancewe determine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the StandaloneFinancial Statements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. Wedescribe these matters in our auditor's report unless law or regulation precludes publicdisclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that amatter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doingso would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.
