Auditor's responsibilities for the audit of the Standalone Financial Statements

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 the 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 the SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also:

a. Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the standalone 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.

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 theAct we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the Company hasadequate internal financial controls system with reference to financial statements inplace and the operating effectiveness of such controls.

c. Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness ofaccounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.

d. Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basis ofaccounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertaintyexists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Bank'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 Bank to cease tocontinue as a going concern.

e. Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the standalone financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the standalone financial statementsrepresent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.

Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the Standalone Financial Statementsthat individually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the Standalone Financial Statements may be influenced. Weconsider quantitative materiality and quantitative factors in (i) planning the scope ofour audit work and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effectof any identified misstatements in the Standalone Financial Statements.

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 also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we have compliedwith relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with themall relationships 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 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.

Other Matter

We draw attention to note no. 4.11 of the Statement relating to the cancellation of theNBFC Registration certificate (CoR) by Reserve Bank of India as confirmed by Department ofFinancial Services Ministry of Finance (MoF) Government of India. The Board has alsoformulated action plan to discontinue NBFC activities and to explore new businessopportunities. However on account of outbreak of Covid 19 and subsequent lockdownannounced by the Central and State Governments the management has not taken finaldecision in respect of new line of activities and has not completed the formalitiesrelating to cancellation of registration with the Bank. Pending the same the managementhas prepared this financial statements on the assumption of a going concern.

Our conclusion is not modified in respect of the above matter.
