We believe that the audit evidence we haveobtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion.

Key Audit Matters: -

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements of the currentyear. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the standalone Ind ASfinancial 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 be the key audit matters to becommunicated in our report:

Key Audit Matters How the matter was addressed in our audit
Regulatory - Litigations/ Contingencies and claims Our procedures included:
* The Company is exposed to a variety of different Central and State/Local laws regulations and interpretations thereof. In this regulatory environment there is an inherent risk of litigations and claims. • Review the outstanding litigations against the Company for consistency with the previous years. Enquire and obtain explanations for movement during the year.
* Consequently provisions and contingent liability disclosures may arise from direct and indirect tax proceedings legal proceedings including regulatory and other government/department proceedings as well as investigations by authorities and commercial claims. • Reading the latest correspondence between the Company and the various tax/legal authorities and review of correspondence with / legal opinions obtained by the management from external legal advisors where applicable for significant matters.
• Discussing the status of significant litigation with the Company's Legal Counsel
Key Audit Matters
* As at 31 March 2019 the Company's contingent liabilities were Rs. 298.94 lacs. Refer Note No. 22. How the matter was addressed in our audit and other senior management personnel and assessing their responses.
* Management applies significant judgement in estimating the likelihood of the future outcome in each case when considering whether and how much to provide or in determining the required disclosure for the potential exposure of each matter. This is due to the highly complex nature and magnitude of the legal matters involved along with the fact that resolution of tax and legal proceedings may span over multiple years and may involve protracted negotiation or litigation. • With respect to tax matters involving our tax specialists and discussing with the Company's officers and Legal Counsel their views and strategies on significant cases as well as the related technical grounds relating to their conclusions based on applicable tax laws.
* These estimates could change substantially over time as new facts emerge and each legal case progresses. • Assessing the decisions and rationale for provisions held or for decisions not to record provisions or make disclosures.
* Given the inherent complexity and magnitude of potential exposures across the Company and the judgement necessary to estimate the amount of provisions required or to determine required disclosures this is a key audit matter. • For those matters where management concluded that no provisions should be recorded considering the adequacy and completeness of the Company's disclosures.

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

In connection with our audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements ourresponsibility is to read the other information and in doing so consider whether theother information is materially inconsistent with the standalone Ind AS financialstatements or our knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materiallymisstated. If based on the work we have performed we conclude that there is a materialmisstatement of this other information we are required to report that fact. We havenothing to report in this regard.

Management's Responsibility for the Financial 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 financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial positionfinancial performance (including other comprehensive income) cash flows and changes inequity of the Company in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted inIndia including the Indian Accounting Standards ("IND AS") specified underSection 133 of the Act read with Rule 7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules 2014.

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

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements:-

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalone Ind ASfinancial 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 standalone Ind AS 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 standalone Ind ASfinancial 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 Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the company hasadequate internal financial controls with reference to financial statements in place andthe 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 Ind AS 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 the standalone IndAS financial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalone Ind ASfinancial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner thatachieves 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 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 Ind AS financialstatements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describethese matters in our auditors' 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.
