Our opinion is not modified in this matter.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters ( KAM ) are those matters that in our professional judgment were ofmost significance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period. Thesematters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a wholeand in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion on thesematters. Except for the matters described in the

 

Basis for Qualified Opinion and Material Uncertainty related to Going Concern sectionwe have determined that there are no key audit matters to be communicated in our report.

Information Other than the Standalone Financial Statements and Auditor s report thereon

The Company s management and Board of Directors are responsible for the otherinformation. The other information comprises the information included in the Company sannual report but does not include the financial statements and our auditors reportthereon. The annual report is expected to be made available to us after the date of thisauditor s report.

Our opinion on the financial statements does not cover the other information and we donot express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

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 financial statements or our knowledge obtained in theaudit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If based on the work we haveperformed we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this other information weare required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in this regard.

Responsibilities of Management and Those Charged with Governance for the FinancialStatements

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 financial statements that givea true and fair view of the financial position financial performance (including othercomprehensive income) changes in equity and cash flows of the Company in accordance withthe accounting principles generally accepted in India including the Indian AccountingStandards (Ind AS) specified under Section 133 of the Act. This responsibility alsoincludes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions ofthe Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Company and for preventing and detectingfrauds and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate accountingpolicies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and designimplementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls that wereoperating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accountingrecords relevant to the preparation and presentation of the financial statements thatgive a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud orerror.

In preparing the financial statements management and Board of Directors areresponsible for assessing the Company s ability to continue as a going concerndisclosing as applicable matters related to going concern and using the going concernbasis of accounting unless management either intends to liquidate the Company or to ceaseoperations or has no realistic alternative but to do so. Those Board of Directors is alsoresponsible for overseeing the Company s financial reporting process.

Auditor s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financialstatements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or errorand to issue an auditor s report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a highlevel of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAswill always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise fromfraud or error and are considered material if individually or in the aggregate theycould reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on thebasis 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 therisks of material misstatement of the financial statements whether due to fraud or errordesign and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks and obtain audit evidencethat is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of notdetecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resultingfrom error as fraud may involve collusion forgery intentional omissionsmisrepresentations or the override of internal control.

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 in place and the operating effectiveness ofsuch controls.

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

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 Company sability to continue as a going concern.

If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists we are required to draw attention inour auditor s report to the related disclosures in the financial statements or if suchdisclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the auditevidence obtained up to the date of our auditors report. However future events orconditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern.

Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the financial statementsincluding the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent the underlyingtransactions and events in a manner that achieves 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 withthose charged with governance we determine those matters that were of most significancein the audit of the financial statements of the current period and are therefore the keyaudit matters. We describe these matters in our auditors report unless law or regulationprecludes public disclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances wedetermine that a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverseconsequences of doing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interestbenefits of such communication.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our qualified audit opinion on the Company s internal financialcontrols system over financial reporting.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting

A company s internal financial control over financial reporting is a process designedto provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and thepreparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generallyaccepted accounting principles. 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 including the possibility of collusion or improper management override ofcontrols material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls over financialreporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial controlover financial reporting may become in adequate because of changes in conditions or thatthe degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
