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 currentperiod. 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. Following is the Key Audit Matter identified which isof most significance:

As described in Note 30.16 to the standalone financial statements the Company hasadopted Ind AS 116 Leases (Ind AS 116) in the current year. The application and transitionto this accounting standard is complex and is an area of focus in our audit. Ind AS 116introduces a new lease accounting model wherein lessees' are required to recognise aright-of-use (ROU) asset and a lease liability arising from a lease on the balance sheet.The lease liabilities are initially measured by discounting future lease payments duringthe lease term as per the contract/ arrangement. Adoption of the standard involvessignificant judgements and estimates including determination of the discount rates andthe lease term. Additionally the standard mandates detailed disclosures in respect oftransition. Refer Note 30.16 and Note 40 to the standalone financial statements.

Audit procedures performed:

Our audit procedures on adoption of I nd AS 116 include:

• Assessed and tested new processes and controls in respect of the leaseaccounting standard (Ind AS 116);

• Assessed the Company's evaluation on the identification of leases based on thecontractual agreements and our knowledge of the business;

• Upon transition as at 1st April 2019:

• Evaluated the method of transition and related adjustments;

• Tested completeness of the lease data by reconciling the Company's operatinglease commitments to data used in computing ROU asset and the lease liabilities.

• On a statistical sample we performed the following procedures:

• Assessed the key terms and conditions of each lease with the underlying leasecontracts; and

• evaluated computation of lease liabilities and challenged the key estimates suchas discount rates and the lease term.

• Assessed and tested the presentation and disclosures relating to Ind AS 116including disclosures relating to transition.

In connection with our audit of the Financial Statements our responsibility is to readthe other information and in doing so consider whether the other information ismaterially inconsistent with the standalone Ind AS Financial Statements or our knowledgeobtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated.

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in section134(5) of the Act with respect to the preparation of these standalone Ind AS FinancialStatements that give a true and fair view of the standalone financial position standalonefinancial performance (including other comprehensive income) standalone changes in equityand standalone 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 Act read with the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules2015 as amended.

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

Auditor's Responsibility for the Audit of the Standalone 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 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 Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the Company hasadequate internal financial controls system in place and the operating effectiveness ofsuch controls. and 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 Ind AS 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.

The Company's management is responsible for establishing and maintaining internalfinancial controls based on the internal control over financial reporting criteriaestablished by the Company considering the essential components of internal control statedin the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reportingissued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India ('ICAI').

Auditors' Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's internal financialcontrols with reference to financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our auditin accordance with the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls overFinancial Reporting (the "Guidance Note") and the Standards on Auditing issuedby ICAI and deemed to be prescribed under section 143(10) of the Companies Act 2013 tothe extent applicable to an audit of internal financial controls both applicable to anaudit of Internal Financial Controls and both issued by the Institute of CharteredAccountants of India. Those Standards and the Guidance Note require that we comply withethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance aboutwhether internal financial controls with reference to Financial Statements wereestablished and maintained and if such controls operated effectively in all materialrespects.

Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the existenceof the internal financial controls with reference to financial statements and theiroperating effectiveness. Our audit of internal financial controls with reference toFinancial Statements included obtaining an understanding of internal financial controlswith reference to Financial Statements assessing the risk that a material weaknessexists and testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internalcontrol based on the assessed risk.

A Company's internal financial control over financialreporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance ofrecords that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions anddispositions of the assets of the Company; (2) provide reasonable assurance thattransactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements inaccordance with generally accepted accounting principles and that receipts andexpenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations ofmanagement and directors of the Company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regardingprevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition use or disposition of theCompany's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting

Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financialreporting with reference to Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements including thepossibility of collusion or improper management override of controls materialmisstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected. Also projections ofany evaluation of the internal financial controls over financial reporting with referenceto Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements to future periods are subject to the risk thatthe internal financial control over financial reporting with reference to Standalone IndAS Financial Statements may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or thatthe degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
