We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficientand appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the financial statements.

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 financial statements as awhole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion onthese matters. We have determined the matters described below to be the key audit mattersto be communicated in our report.

Key Audit matter Auditor’s Response
Valuation of inventory Our Procedures included
? Inventory forms a significant part i.e. 34.61% of the Company’s total assets. ??We have reviewed the stock records and held discussion with the management. We verified the arithmetical accuracy of valuation records/ reports.
??Inventory comprises of Raw Materials Finished Goods Stock in Process and Stores and Spares. ??Obtaining understanding of production process and testing of key controls over recognition and measurement of inventory.
? Inventories are valued at lower of cost and net realisable value(NRV) For a sample of inventory items we have verified that the weighted average cost calculation by the system in case inventory is appropriate.
??Valuation of inventories can be subjective due to inherent uncertainty due to volatility in prices of raw material and volatility in prices of finished goods due to changes in consumer demands ??Assessing reasonableness of assumption and judgements applied by management in inventory valuation including evaluating consistencies with management’s prior period estimation.
• Determination of whether inventory will be realized for value less than cost requires management to exercise judgement and apply assumption ??Assessing appropriateness of NRV estimated by management on sample basis by comparing NRV to recent market prices.
• Because of size inherent uncertainty in volatility in prices of raw material assumption and complexities involved in inventory valuation this is considered key audit matter

The Company’s Board of Directors is responsible for the other information. Theother information comprises the information included in the Annual Report but does notinclude the financial statements and our auditor’s report thereon.

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

In connection with our audit of the financial statements our responsibility is to readthe other information and in doing so consider whether the other information ismaterially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained during thecourse of our audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If based on the workwe have performed we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this otherinformation; we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in thisregard.

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

The Company’s Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in Section134(5) of the Act. with respect to the preparation of these financial statements that givea true and fair view of the financial position financial performance including othercomprehensive income cash flows and changes in equity of the Company in accordance withthe Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS) prescribed under Section 133 of the Act read withrelevant rules issued there under and other accounting principles generally accepted inIndia.

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 the 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 offinancial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from materialmisstatement whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the financial statements the Board of Directors 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 the Board of Directors either intends to liquidate the company or tocease operations or has no realistic alternative but to do so.

The Board of Directors are responsible for overseeing the Company’s financialreporting process.

Auditor’s Responsibility for the Audit of the 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 ahigh level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance withSAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arisefrom fraud 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 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 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.

? Obtain an understanding of internal financial controls relevant to the audit in orderto 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 reasonableness ofaccounting 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 theCompany’s ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a materialuncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in our auditor’s report to therelated disclosures in the financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate tomodify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to thedate of our auditor’s report. However future events or conditions may cause theCompany to cease to continue as a going concern.

? Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the standalone financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent theunderlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.

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 allrelationships 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 financial statements of thecurrent period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in ourauditor’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.
