Basis for Opinion

We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) specifiedunder section 143(10) of the Companies Act 2013. Our responsibilities under thoseStandards are further described in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the IndAS Financial 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 thefinancial statements under the provisions of the Companies Act 2013 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 opinion on the Ind ASfinancial statements.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period. These matterswere addressed in the context of our audit of the Ind AS Financial statements as a wholeand in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion on thesematters. We have determined the following key audit matter to be communicate in ourreport.

• Valuation of unquoted financial assets held at fair value

The valuation of the Company's unquoted financial assets held at fair value was a keyarea of audit focus due to the significance of the amount and complexity involved in thevaluation process. Management makes significant judgements because of the complexity ofthe techniques and assumptions used in valuing some of the level 3 investment securitiesgiven the limited external evidence and unobservable market data available to support theCompany's valuations.

In this regard we evaluated the assumptions methodologies and models used by theCompany. We performed a test check of a sample of positions and noted no significantvariation. We also involved our valuation experts to assess the appropriateness ofmethodologies used and found that these are reasonable in the context of the relevantinvestment securities held.

Information Other than the Ind AS Financial Statements and Auditor's Report Thereon

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the preparation of the otherinformation. The other information comprises the information included in the ManagementDiscussion and Analysis Board's Report including Annexures to Board's Report BusinessResponsibility Report Corporate Governance and Shareholder's Information but does notinclude the Ind AS financial statements and our auditor's report thereon.

Our opinion on the Ind AS financial statements does not cover the other information andwe do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the Ind AS financial statements our responsibility isto read the other information and in doing so consider whether the other information ismaterially inconsistent with the Ind AS financial statements or our knowledge obtainedduring the course of our audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated.

If based on the work we have performed we conclude that there is a materialmisstatement of this other information we are required to report that fact. We havenothing to report in this regard.

Management's responsibility for the Ind AS Financial Statements

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in section134(5) of the Companies Act 2013 ("the Act") with respect to the preparation ofthese Ind AS financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financialposition financial performance changes in equity and cash flows of the Company inaccordance with the Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS) and accounting principlesgenerally accepted in India specified under section 133 of the Act read with theCompanies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules 2015 as amended. This responsibility alsoincludes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions ofthe Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Company and for preventing and detectingfrauds and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate implementationand maintenance of accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonableand prudent; and design implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financialcontrols that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness ofthe accounting records relevant to the preparation and presentation of the Ind ASfinancial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from materialmisstatement whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the Ind AS financial statements management is responsible for assessingthe Company's ability to continue as a going concern disclosing as applicable mattersrelated to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless managementeither intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations or has no realisticalternative but to do so.

Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the company's financialreporting process.

Auditor's Responsibility for the Audit of the Ind AS Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financialstatements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or errorand to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a highlevel of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAswill always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise fromfraud 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 Ind AS financial statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:

• Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the Ind AS financialstatements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsiveto those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide abasis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting fromfraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusionforgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internal control.

• Obtain an understanding of internal financial controls relevant to the audit inorder to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section143(3)(i) of the Act 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.

• Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonablenessof accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.

• Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basisof accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertaintyexists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company'sability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty existswe are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures inthe Ind AS financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify ouropinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of ourauditor's report. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease tocontinue as a going concern.

• Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the Ind AS financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the Ind AS financial statementsrepresent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.

Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the Ind AS financial statements thatindividually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may be influenced. We considerquantitative materiality and qualitative factors in (i) planning the scope of our auditwork and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effect of anyidentified misstatements in the financial statements.

We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among other matters theplanned scogg 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 Ind AS financial statements ofthe current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters inour auditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matteror 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.
