In preparing the financial statements management is responsible forassessing the Company's ability to continue as a going concern disclosing asapplicable matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis ofaccounting unless management either intends to liquidate the Company or to ceaseoperations or has no realistic alternative but to do so.
The Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing thecompany's financial reporting process. Auditor's Responsibility for the Auditof the Financial Statements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether thefinancial 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. Reasonableassurance is a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted inaccordance with SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists.Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if individuallyor in the aggregate they reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions ofusers taken on the basis of these financial statements.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professionaljudgment and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also:
Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of thefinancial statements whether due to fraud or error; to design and perform auditprocedures responsive to those risks; and to obtain audit evidence that is sufficient andappropriate to provide a basis for the auditor's opinion. The risk of not detecting amaterial misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error asfraud may involve collusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or theoverride of 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 Companies Act2013 we are responsible for expressing our opinionon whether the company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and theoperating 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 financial statements or if such disclosures areinadequate to modify the opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidenceobtained up to the date of the auditor's report. However future events or conditionsmay cause an entity to cease to continue as a going concern.
Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of thefinancial statements including the disclosures and whether the financial statementsrepresent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.
Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the standalonefinancial statements that individually or in aggregate makes it probable that theeconomics decisions of a reasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statement may beinfluenced. We consider quantitative materiality and qualitative factor in (i) planningthe scope of our audit work and in evaluating the result of our work and (ii) to evaluatethe effect of any identified misstatements in the financial statements.
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 communicatewith them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear onour independence and where applicable related safeguards.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
A company's internal financial control over financial reporting is aprocess designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financialreporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordancewith generally accepted accounting principles. A company's internal financial control overfinancial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to themaintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect thetransactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonableassurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financialstatements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and that receiptsand expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorisations ofmanagement and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regardingprevention or timely detection of unauthorised acquisition use or disposition of thecompany's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls over FinancialReporting
Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls overfinancial reporting including the possibility of collusion or improper managementoverride of controls material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not bedetected. Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls overfinancial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financialcontrol over financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditionsor that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In our opinion the Company has in all material respects an adequateinternal financial controls system over financial reporting and such internal financialcontrols over financial reporting were operating effectively as at 31 March 2022 based onthe internal control over financial reporting criteria established by the Companyconsidering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note onAudit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute ofChartered Accountants of India.
