In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to theexplanations given to us the aforesaid standalone financial statements give theinformation required by the Companies Act 2013 ("the Act") in the manner sorequired and give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principlesgenerally accepted in India including the Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS) prescribedunder Section 133 of the Companies Act 2013 read with Companies (Indian AccountingStandards) Rules 2015 as amended ("Ind AS") and the relevant rules issuedthereunder of the state of affairs (financial position)of the Company as at 31stMarch 2019 the profit (financial performance including other comprehensive income)changes in equity and its cash flows for the year ended on that date.

Basis for opinion

We conducted our audit of the standalone financial statements inaccordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) specified under section 143(10) of theCompanies Act 2013. Our responsibilities under those Standards are further described inthe Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone FinancialStatements section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance withthe Code of Ethics issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI)together with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the standalonefinancial statements under the provisions of the Act and the Rules thereunder and we havefulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements and theICAI's Code of Ethics. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained issufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the standalonefinancial statements.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professionaljudgmentwereofmostsignificanceinourauditofthestandalone financial statements of thecurrent period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the standalonefinancial statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not providea separate opinion on these matters. We have determined the matters described below to bethe key audit matters to be communicated in our report.

KEY AUDIT MATTER Contingent liabilities
CRITERIA FOR DISCLOSURE AS KEY AUDIT MATTER Uncertainty of the outcome & the disputed amount involved
PRESENT STATUS AUDIT APPROACH
As per Ind AS 37- Provisions Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets a contingent liability is a possible obligation arising from past events the outcome of which will be confirmed only on the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain future events (Ind AS 37). As per the standard once recognized as a contingent liability an entity should continually assess the probability of the outflow of the future economic benefits relating to that contingent liability. If the probability of the outflow of the future economic benefits changes to more likely than not then the contingent liability may develop into an actual liability and would need to be recognized as a provision.
There are several claims and litigations against the company which in the judgement of the management would not eventually lead to a liability. Hence no provision is made in the accounts for the year under audit. Should there be an adverse outcome the Company may be liable to pay the disputed amount which may carry interest and/or penalty as decided by the adjudicating authority/statutory authority/court of law. We have reviewed the list of claims and litigations against the company and considered the present status and probability of the outflow of the future economic benefits from the available records and taken written representations.
Based on the information provided to us that the contingent liabilities as mentioned in Note 45 of the Standalone Financial Statements fairly reflect the current position and no provision is called for at this stage.
As per Ind AS 36- Impairment of Assets for investments in subsidiaries joint ventures or associates impairment has to be done when the carrying amount of such investment in the separate financial statement is higher than the carrying amount in the consolidated financial statements of the investee's net assets including associated goodwill. We have reviewed assumptions taken for projecting the future cash flows and the basis of criteria for the underlying preparation of these projections.
ONGC Mangalore Petrochemicals Limited being the subsidiary of Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited has incurred continuous losses which has led to erosion of net worth of the company. It has started making profits only in the last quarter of the current financial year. The management of ONGC Mangalore Petrochemicals Limited has estimated that it will make profits in the upcoming years based on various assumptions and projections which are subject to uncertainties. Based on the representations provided to us by the management and the Statutory auditor of the subsidiary company no impairment is required for the investments made in the subsidiary as at the end of the financial year. (Refer note no. 10 of the Standalone Financial statements).
As per Ind AS 19- Employee Benefits Actuarial gains or losses refers to an increase or decrease to a company's estimate of their projected defined benefit obligation as a result of the periodic revaluation of assumptions. We have reviewed the projections and assumptions made by the company for providing for the actuarial valuation. We have also tested the completeness and accuracy of the underlying data that was provided to the actuaries against a source documentation.
This involves a high degree of subjectivity and complexity. The Company uses a range of actuarial methodologies and methods to estimate these provisions. It requires significant judgement relating to certain factors and assumptions which include but are not limited to interest rates inflation trends rate of increase in salary regulatory decisions rate of employee turnover historical claims information mortality rate during and after employment and the growth of exposure. Based on the data provided to us and the review made by us the actuarial estimate of the provision required for employee benefit appear reasonable. (Refer note no. 40 of the Standalone Financial statements).

The other information comprises the information included in the ManagementDiscussion and Analysis Director's Report including Annexures to Director'sReport Business Responsibility Report Corporate Governance and Shareholder'sInformation but does not include the standalone financial statements and ourauditor's report thereon.

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

In connection with our audit of the standalone financial statementsour responsibility is to read the other information identified above when it becomesavailable and in doing so consider whether the other information is materiallyinconsistent with the standalone financial statements or our knowledge obtained during thecourse of our audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated.

If based on the work we have performed we conclude that there is amaterial misstatement of this other information we are required to report that fact. Wehave nothing to report in this regard.

Management's Responsibility for the Standalone FinancialStatements

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the mattersstated in section 134(5) of the Companies Act 2013 ("the Act") with respect tothe preparation of these standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view ofthe financial position financial performance total comprehensive income changes inequity and cash flows of the Company in accordance with the accounting principlesgenerally accepted in India including the Indian accounting standards (Ind AS) specifiedunder section 133 of the Companies Act 2013.

Inpreparing the standalone 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.

Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing theCompany's financial reporting process.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the StandaloneFinancial 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 could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisionsof users taken on the basis of these standalone financial statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professionaljudgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also: Identifyand assess the risks of material misstatement of the standalone 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 anunderstanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to design auditprocedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3) (i) of the Actwe are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the company has adequateinternal financial controls system in place and the operating effectiveness of suchcontrols.

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 the goingconcern basis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a materialuncertainty exists 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 standalone financial statements or if such disclosures areinadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidenceobtained up to the date of our auditor's report. However future events or conditionsmay cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern.

Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of thestandalone financial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalonefinancial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner thatachieves fair presentation. We communicate with those charged with governance regardingamong other matters the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant auditfindings including any significant defficiencies in internal control that we identifyduring our audit. We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that wehave complied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and tocommunicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thoughtto bear on our independence and where applicable related safeguards. From the matterscommunicated with those charged with governance we determine those matters that were ofmost significance in the audit of the standalone financial statements of the currentperiod 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.
