Key audit matters How our audit addressed the key audit matter
Transition to Ind AS accounting framework (as described in note 33 of the Ind AS financial statements)
The company has adopted Ind AS from 1st April 2019 with an effective date of 1st April 2018 for such transition. For periods up to and including the year ended on 31st March 2019 the Company had prepared and presented its financial statements in accordance with the erstwhile generally accepted accounting principles in India (Indian GAAP). To give effect of the transition to Ind AS these financial statements for the year ended on 31st March 2020 together with the comparative financial information for the previous year ended on 31st March 2019 and the transition date Balance Sheet as at 1st April 2018 have been prepared under Ind AS. • Read the Ind AS impact assessment performed by the Management and the resultant changes made to the accounting policies considering the requirements of the new framework.
• Evaluated the exemption and exception allowed by Ind AS and applied by the Management in applying the first time adoption principles of Ind AS 101 in respect of fair valuation of assets and liabilities existing as on the transition date.
• Tested the accounting adjustments posted as on the transition date and in respect of the previous year to convert the financial information reported under erstwhile Indian GAAP to Ind AS.
The transition has involved significant change in the Company's policies and processes for financial reporting including generation of supportable information and applying estimates to inter alia determine impact of Ind AS on accounting and disclosure requirements prescribed under extant Reserve Bank of India(RBI) directions. • Tested the disclosures prescribed under Ind AS.
In view of the complexity involved Ind AS transition and the preparation of financial statements subsequent to the transition date have been areas of key focus in our audit.

Information Other than the Standalone Financial Statements and Auditor's Report Thereon

The Company's board of directors is responsible for the preparation of the otherinformation. The other information comprises the information included in the AnnualReport but does not include the financial statements and our auditor's report thereon.

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

In connection with our audit of the standalone financial statements our responsibilityis to read the other information and in doing so consider whether the other informationis materially inconsistent with the standalone financial statements or our knowledgeobtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If based on thework we have performed we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this otherinformation we are required to report that fact. Since the other information has not beenmade available to us we shall not be able to comment on this aspect.

Responsibilities of Management and those charged with governance for the standalonefinancial statements

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in section134(5) of the Companies Act 2013 (“the Act”) with respect to the preparation ofthese standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financialposition financial performance including other comprehensive income cash flows andchanges in equity of the Company in accordance with Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS)prescribed under section 133 of the Act read with the Companies (Indian AccountingStandards) Rules 2015 and Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules 2016 as amendedfrom time to time and other accounting principles generally accepted in India.

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 frauds and other irregularities; selection andapplication of appropriate implementation and maintenance of accounting policies; makingjudgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and design implementation andmaintenance of adequate internal financial controls- that were operating effectively forensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records relevant to thepreparation and presentation of the standalone financial statement that give a true andfair view and are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the financial statements management is responsible for assessing theCompany's ability to continue as a going concern disclosing as applicable mattersrelated to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless managementeither intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations or has no realisticalternative but to do so.

Those charged with governance are also responsible for overseeing the company'sfinancial reporting process.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of standalone financial statement

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 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 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 standalonefinancial 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 the audit in order todesign audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3)(i)of the Companies Act 2013 we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whetherthe company has internal financial controls with reference to Financial Statements inplace and the operating effectiveness of such controls.

• Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonablenessof accounting 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 the Company'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 Company to cease tocontinue as a going concern.

• Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the standalonefinancial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalone financialstatements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.

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 statementsfor the year ended 31st March 2020 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.
