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 theFinancial Statements section of our report.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the standalone financial statements of the current period.These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the standalone financialstatements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide aseparate opinion on these matters. We have determined the matters described below to bethe key audit matters to be communicated in our report

1. Impairment of property plant and equipment: -

The operation of Blast Furnace Unit has been suspended since 2009 due to thecommercial non-viability of manufacturing of pig iron. The company has done the impairmenttest as stated under 12(b) of Ind AS 36 from an approved valuer and accordingly the fairvalues of the machinery determined are more than the carrying cost.

Similarly the Kudremukh Unit from where iron ore was extracted by KIOCLLimited is abandoned long time back and all the assets located therein are eitherdisposed off or transferred to Pellet Plant. Owing to disputes relating to land andpending issues on surrender of mines the buildings in the township are reduced to‘nil' value but value of the land continues to be shown in the books of accounts. Thecompany is of the view that Lakya Dam therein is the main water source for the pelletplant the land value is shown under PPE.

2. Valuation of inventory: -

As the company is in existence for more than 42 years and continue manufacturing of'Pellet' has piled up significant inventory of non-moving spare parts presently re-classied under capital spares and valued at cost.

The management is of the view that these capital spares have a de nite use but flowingto the nature of industry their replacement value could not be ascertained and thereforeretained at cost.

3. Estimates:

The Accounting Standards and Accounting Policies require the Company to make estimatesand assumptions about future events that directly affect its reported financial conditionand operating performance. The following accounting estimates and assumptions consideredat the end of the reporting year may have a significant risk of causing a materialadjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financialyears.

• Useful lives of property plant and equipment: The Company reviewsthe estimated useful lives of property plant and equipment at the end of each reportingyear. The financial effect of this reassessment assuming the assets are held until theend of their estimated useful lives is an increase/decrease the depreciation expense inthe current financial year and future years.

• Estimation of defined benefit obligation: The cost of defined benefits planincluding other post-employment benefits and the present value of such obligations aredetermined using actuarial valuations. The Company has adopted the valuation and figuresas submitted by its corporate office. The actuarial assumptions on retirement benefits aresubject to various assumptions like mortality rate inflation on salary and attritionrate. Any changes will significantly influence the assumptions. We have relied uponvaluation of 'actuary' in accordance with SA 620 issued by ICAI.

3. GST:

Company is availing input credit on the eligible inputs under the GST act and the rulesmade there under. The company is also claiming refunds on the zero-rated supply namelyExport of Goods. The input credits are grouped under Loans and Advances in Current Asset.However the company not reconciled the input credit with the Electronic Credit Ledgeravailable under the GST portal. It was explained to us that the entries in the ElectronicCredit Ledger are pending reconciliation and the effect of the reconciliation in theopinion of the management is not material considering the turnover and the profit of thecompany.

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statementswhether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsive to thoserisks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis forour opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud ishigher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusion forgeryintentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internal control.

b. Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to designaudit procedures 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 theImplementation Guide on Reporting Standards 87 company has adequate internal financialcontrols system in place and the operating effectiveness of such controls.

A company's internal financial control over financial reporting is a process designedto provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and thepreparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generallyaccepted accounting principles. A company's internal financial control over financialreporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance ofrecords that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions anddispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance thattransactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements inaccordance with generally accepted accounting principles and that receipts andexpenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations ofmanagement and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regardingprevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition use or disposition of thecompany's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financialreporting including the possibility of collusion or improper management override ofcontrols material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls over financialreporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial controlover financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or thatthe degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

In our opinion the Unit has in all material respects an adequate internal financialcontrols system over financial reporting and such internal financial controls overfinancial reporting were operating effectively as at March 31 2019 based on the internalcontrol over financial reporting criteria established by the Company considering theessential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of InternalFinancial Controls Over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute of CharteredAccountants of India.
