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. 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 thestandalone Financial Statements

Emphasis of Matter

We draw attention to Note No. 55 of the standalone financial statements whichdescribes the uncertainties and the possible effects of Covid-19 on the operations of theCompany. Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.

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 financial statements as a whole and informing our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters.

We have determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to becommunicated in our report.

Key Audit Matter How our audit addressed the Key Audit Matter
A) Revenue Recognition of long-term contracts
The Company has significant revenue from construction contracts and long-term operating and maintenance agreements. These long-term contracts are often complex customised solutions and meet the definition of a contract as per Ind AS 115. Our revenue testing included both testing of the company's controls as well as substantive audit procedures targeted at selected major long-term projects. Our substantive testing focused on estimates applied by management in the accounting.
Our procedures included among others things the following:
Revenue related to these construction contracts is recognised using the percentage of completion method where progress is determined by comparing actual costs incurred to date with the total estimated costs of the project. Revenue recognition for construction contracts includes management judgment in the form of estimates which are subject to management experience and expectations of future events. The most important judgment relates to the estimated total costs of the project. • Ensured that the revenue recognition method applied was appropriate based on the terms of the arrangement;
• Agreed the total project revenue estimates to sales agreements including amendments as appropriate;
Revenue recognition of long-term contracts is a key audit matter in the audit due to the high level of management judgement involved in the project estimates. • We obtained an understanding of the processes and tested relevant controls which impact the revenue recognition;
• We assessed the reliability of management's estimates by comparing the actual results of delivered projects to previous estimates;
B) Litigation and Claims
Our audit procedures included the following:
Considering the nature of the Company's operations it can be exposed to a number of litigations and claims. The recognition and measurement of provisions contingent liabilities and contingent assets as well as making the necessary disclosures in respect of litigation and claims requires significant judgment by the management in assessing the outcome of each legal case which is based on management's discussion with legal advisors. Due to the significance of the litigations and claims and the difficulty in assessing and measuring the resulting outcome this is considered as a key audit matter. • evaluating the Company's policies procedures and controls in relation to litigation claims and provision assessments;
• independent enquiries to understand the background of each case legal position and the material risks that may impact the Company's standalone financial statements; and
• assessing reasonableness of judgment made by management determining the adequacy of the level of provisioning or disclosure in the standalone financial statements.

Information Other than the Standalone 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 standalone financial statements and our auditor's report thereon.

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

In connection with our audit of the standalone financial statements our responsibilityis to read the other information and in doing so consider whether the other informationis materially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained duringthe course of our audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If based on thework we have performed we conclude that there is a material misstatement of

this other information we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to reportin this regard.

Management's Responsibility for the Standalone 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 Standalone Financial Statements that give a true and fair view of the financialposition financial performance including other comprehensive income cash flows andchanges in equity of the Company in accordance with the Indian Accounting Standardsprescribed under section 133 of the Act read with Companies (Indian Accounting standards)Rules 2015 as amended and other accounting principles generally accepted in India.

This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records inaccordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Companyand for preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection andapplication of appropriate accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that arereasonable and prudent; and design implementation and maintenance of adequate internalfinancial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy andcompleteness of the accounting records relevant to the preparation and presentation ofthe Standalone 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 management is responsible forassessing the Company's ability to continue as a going concern disclosing as applicablematters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unlessmanagement either intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations or has norealistic alternative but to do so. Those Board of Directors are also responsible foroverseeing the Company's financial reporting process.

Auditor's Responsibility

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. Reasonable assuranceis a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordancewith SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements canarise from fraud or error and are considered material if individually or in theaggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of userstaken on the basis of these standalone 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 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 control relevant to the audit in order todesign audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3)(i) of the Companies Act 2013 we are also responsible for expressing our opinion onwhether the company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and theoperating effectiveness 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 standalone 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 financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the standalone financial statementsrepresent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.

We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among other matters theplanned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings including anysignificant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit. We alsoprovide those charged with governance with a statement that we have complied with relevantethical requirements

regarding independence and to communicate with them all relationships and othermatters that may reasonably be thought to bear on our independence and where applicablerelated 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 the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these mattersin our auditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure 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.
