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 of the state of affairs of the Company as at March 312020and its profit and its total comprehensive income its changes in equity and its cashflows for the year ended on that date.

Basis for Opinion

We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing(SAs) specified under section 143(10) of the Companies Act 2013. Our responsibilitiesunder those Standards are further described in the Auditor's Responsibilities for theAudit of the Financial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Companyin accordance 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.

Emphasis of Matter

Without qualifying the audit opinion attention is invited to

1) a) Note No. 49(a) to the Standalone Financial Statements whichexplains the lease relating to the leasehold land on which one of the manufacturing unitsof the Company is operating has since expired on June 30 2017 in respect of whichrequests seeking renewal have been filed by the Company with Govt. of Tamil Nadu (theLessor) and the extension of lease is awaited. Pending renewal of lease no adjustmentshave been made in the Standalone Financial Statements for the year ended March 31 2020for any potential impact of non-renewal of land lease which is unascertainable at thispoint of time. Further the Management has confirmed that the efforts to obtain the leaseextension are continuing and is confident of obtaining the renewal of the lease of theland.

b) Note no 49(b) to the Standalone Financial Statements which explainsthe position of the pendency of renewal of Lease of Land and fixation of lease rent byGovernment of Tamilnadu in respect of land on which Company's manufacturing plant(unit-II) is operating in view of which no adjustments have been made in the financialstatements for the year and in the opening retained earnings towards any possible impactarising on account of implementation of Ind AS 116 - "Leases" since the same isnot ascertainable at this point of time.

c) Note no 38(i)(a) to the standalone financial statements whichexplains the demand notice received from the Tahsildar Thiruvottiyur demanding payment ofRs 19836 Lakhs towards arrears of lease rent. The management based on a legal advicebelieves that demand for alleged arrears of lease rent is baseless unsubstantiatederroneous and is arbitrary and not tenable accordingly no provision has been considerednecessary. Taking into consideration the efforts of the management in seekingclarifications on the rationale and the basis for issuing the demand (which have not beenexplained in the demand notice) and subsequent representations made by the company toGovernment explaining the unreasonableness and arbitrariness of the demand and also basedon pending request seeking revision and withdrawal of the same which is currently pendingbefore Government of Tamilnadu and pending the outcome of representations by the companyno adjustments have been made in the Standalone financial Statements.

2) Attention is invited to Note no 50 to the standalone financialstatements which explains the management's assessment of the financial impact due to thelockdown and other restrictions and conditions related to the COVID - 19 pandemicsituation for which a definitive assessment of the impact in the subsequent period ishighly dependent upon circumstances as they evolve.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgmentwere of most significance in our audit of the Standalone 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 below matters described to bethe key audit matters to be communicated in our Report.

1) Revenue recognition and discounts:

Key Audit Matter Auditor's Response
Revenue is measured net of discounts given to the customers on the Company's sales. The estimation towards measurement of discounts given to its customers corresponding to the sales made during the year is material and is considered to be complex and judgmental. (Revenue recognition and discounts) (i) We have assessed the appropriateness of the Company's Revenue recognition accounting policies including those relating to estimation of discounts given to its customers
. (ii) We have tested the effectiveness of the entity's internal controls over calculation of discounts.
This is an area of significant judgement and with varying complexity depending on nature of arrangement which differs from customer to customer. Therefore there is a risk of revenue being misstated as a result of faulty estimations relating to discounts to its customers (iii) We have evaluated the documentation associated with the transactions of sale including credit notes and appropriate approvals for discounts offered to customers from the samples selected to determine whether revenue was recognised net of discounts in the relevant reporting period. The results of our tests are satisfactory and we considered the estimate of the accrual relating to discounts and the amount of revenue recognised is found to be acceptable on comparing current year discounts accruals to the prior year and where relevant completing further inquiries and testing.

2) Evaluation of Contingent Liabilities

Key Audit Matter Auditor's Response
The Company has contingent liabilities comprising claims against the company not acknowledged as debts and demands from various statutory authorities which are inherent to the normal course of their business filed by third parties former employees and statutory authorities. In general the settlement of these proceedings Our audit procedures included the following: (i) We have evaluated and tested the procedures and controls relating to the identification recognition and measurement of provisions for disputes and disclosures in relation to matters concerning the contingent liabilities;
takes a long time and involve not only discussions on the matter itself but also complex process-related aspects depending on the applicable legislation. (ii) We have considered the list of various orders/notices/ demands received with respect to various litigations from the management;
Among other things the aspects used to establish the likelihood of a loss attributed to each proceeding are subjective and the evolution of the jurisprudence over these disputes are not always uniform. In certain litigation and regulatory matters significant judgement is required by the Management to determine if there is a present obligation under relevant accounting standard. (iii) Reviewed the confirmations obtained by the Company from their legal counsel / consultants on a sample basis and also discussed and analysed material legal cases with the Company's Legal department. We have also analysed the responses obtained from the Company's legal advisors who conduct the court cases tax and administrative proceedings in which the status of the cases and possible/expected manner of proceedings were described.
The complex nature of the Regulations and jurisprudence make this an ongoing area of Evaluation of Contingent Liabilities judgement and taking into consideration Management's judgement in assessing the likelihood that the pending claim will succeed or a liability will arise time period for resolution have been a matter of significance during the audit and the exposure of each case there is a risk that such cases may not be adequately provided for or disclosed in the standalone financial statements and hence considered as a key audit matter. (iv) We held discussions with the Management to understand their assessment of the quantification and likelihood of significant exposures and the provision required for specific cases; (v) Assessed the objectivity and competence of the Management and independence of the legal experts; and (vi) Evaluated the Management's assumptions and estimates relating to the recognition of the provisions for disputes and disclosures of contingent liabilities in the standalone financial statements.
(vii) Assessed the adequacy of the disclosures with regard to facts and circumstances of the legal and litigation matters.
Based on the procedures stated above we found that the criteria and assumptions adopted by Management for determining the provision for contingent liabilities as well as the information disclosed relating to contingent liabilities in the financial statements are appropriate.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the StandaloneFinancial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether theStandalone financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whetherdue to fraud or error and to issue an Auditor's report that includes our opinion.Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an auditconducted in accordance with SAs will always detect a material misstatement when itexists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material ifindividually or in the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence theeconomic decisions of 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:

• Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of thefinancial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit proceduresresponsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatementresulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involvecollusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internalcontrol.

• 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 Act 2013 we are also responsible for expressing ouropinion on whether the company has adequate internal financial controls with reference tofinancial statements in place and the operating 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 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 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 the Companyto 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.

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 we havecomplied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicatewith them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear onour independence and where applicable related safeguards.

From the matters communicated with those charged with governance wedetermine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the financialstatements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describethese matters in our auditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosureabout the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a mattershould not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing sowould reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.
