We believe that theaudit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for ouraudit opinion on the 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 financial statements of thecurrent period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financialstatements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide aseparate opinion on these matters. We have determined that there are no key audit mattersto communicate in our report.

The other information comprises the informationincluded in the Management Discussion and Analysis Board?s Report includingAnnexures to Board?s Report Business Responsibility Report Corporate Governance andShareholder?s Information but does not include the standalone financial statementsand our auditor?s report thereon.

Our opinion on the standalone financial statements does not cover theother information and we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the standalone financial statementsour responsibility is to read the other information and in doing so consider whether theother information is materially inconsistent with the standalone financial statements orour knowledge obtained during the course of our audit or otherwise appears to bematerially misstated.

If based on the work we have performed we conclude that there is amaterial misstatement of this other information we are required to report that fact. Wehave nothing to report in this regard

Management?s Responsibility for the Standalone FinancialStatements:

The Company?s Board of Directors is responsible for the mattersstated in Section 134(5) of the Companies Act 2013 ("the Act") with respect tothe preparation of these standalone Ind AS financial statements that give a true and fairview of the financial position financial performance including other comprehensiveincome cash flows and changes in equity of the Company in accordance with the IndianAccounting

Standards (Ind AS) prescribed under Section 133 of the Companies Act2013 read with relevant rules issued there under and other accounting principles generallyaccepted in India.

This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accountingrecords in accordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding of the assets of thecompany and for preventing and detecting the frauds and other irregularities; selectionand application of appropriate accounting policies; making judgments and estimates thatare reasonable and prudent; and design implementation and maintenance of adequateinternal financial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy andcompleteness of the accounting records relevant to the preparation and presentation ofstandalone Ind AS financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free frommaterial misstatement whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the Standalone financial statements the Board ofDirectors is responsible for assessing the company?s ability to continue as a goingconcern disclosing as applicable matters related to going concern and using the goingconcern basis of accounting unless the Board of Directors either intends to liquidate thecompany or to cease operations or has no realistic alternative but to do so.

The Board of Directors are responsible for overseeing theCompany?s financial reporting process.

Auditor?s Responsibility for the Audit of the Standalone FinancialStatements

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.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professionaljudgment and maintain professional skepticism 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 financial controls relevantto the audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in thecircumstances. Under section 143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressingour opinion on whether the Company has adequate internal financial controls system inplace 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 thegoing concern basis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether amaterial uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significantdoubt on the Company?s ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that amaterial uncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in our auditor?sreport to the related disclosures in the standalone financial statements or if suchdisclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the auditevidence obtained up to the date of our auditor?s report. However future events orconditions may cause 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.

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 of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. Wedescribe these matters in our auditor?s report unless law or regulation precludespublic disclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determinethat a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences ofdoing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.
