Basis for opinion

3. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing(SAs) specified under section 143(10) of the Act. Our responsibilities under thoseStandards are further described in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit ofthe Financial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Company inaccordance 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 Act and the Rules thereunder and we havefulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements and theCode of Ethics. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient andappropriate to provide a basis for our opinion.

Key audit matters

4. Key audit matters are those matters that in our professionaljudgment were of most significance in our audit of the financial statements of thecurrent period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financialstatements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide aseparate opinion on these matters.

Key audit matter How our audit addressed the key audit matter
Assessment of Carrying Value of: Our procedures included the following :
a) Investment in Wholly Owned Subsidiaries i.e. NFIL (UK) Limited UK and Manchester Organics Limited UK; and Understood the management process for assessment of carrying values of investments and PP&E and also evaluated the design and tested the operating effectiveness of the Company's internal controls surrounding such assessment.
b) Identified Property Plant and Equipment (PP&E) relating to Dewas Unit Reviewed the Company's accounting policy in respect of impairment assessment of investments and PP&E.
(Refer toNote 2(k) 5A 8 and 53 in the standalone financial statements) Assessed whether the Company's determination of CGUs was consistent with our knowledge of the Company's operations.
The carrying value of the investment in above mentioned subsidiaries and the property plant and equipment (PP&E) relating to the Company's manufacturing facility at Dewas as at March 31 2021 is RS. 9390.36 lakhs and RS. 14248.05 lakhs respectively which in aggregate represents approximately 12.66% of the total assets of the Company. Compared the previous year cash flow forecasts made by the management to actual results to assess the historical accuracy of forecasting.
The said investments and PP&E are carried at cost less accumulated impairment losses if any. The Company reviews their carrying values at every balance sheet date and performs impairment assessment in accordance with Ind AS 36 ‘Impairment of Assets' where there is any indication of impairment to the carrying value. As mentioned in the note 53 the Management considers these investments and the said PP&E as part of one cash generating unit (CGU) for the purpose of assessment of their recoverable value. To assess the reasonableness of the key assumptions used in particular those relating to discount rates cash flow forecasts and terminal growth rates applied:
Management estimates recoverable value of the CGU based on discounted cash flows forecast requiring judgements in respect certain key inputs like determining an appropriate discount rate future cash flows and terminal growth rate. Changes in these assumptions could lead to an impairment to the carrying values of the investments and PP&E forming part of the CGU. - Engaged with auditors' valuation experts to determine a range of acceptable discount rates and terminal growth rates with reference to valuations of similar companies and other relevant external data.
We have considered this to be a key audit matter as the carrying value of these investments and PP&E is significant to the balance sheet and significant management judgement is involved in calculation of recoverable amount for the purpose of assessment of the appropriateness of the carrying amount. - Performed sensitivity analysis on the forecasts by varying the key assumptions within a foreseeable range.
- Tested the cash flow forecasts used and assessed whether those were consistent with our understanding of the business.
Checked the arithmetic accuracy of the computations included in the discounted cash flow projections.
Evaluated the adequacy and appropriateness of disclosures made in the standalone financial statements.
Based on the above procedures performed we noted that the management's assessment of the carrying value of the investments and the identified PP&E is reasonable.

Responsibilities of management and those charged with governance forthe financial statements

Those Board of Directors arealso responsible for overseeing the Company's financial reporting process.

Auditor's responsibilities for the audit of the financialstatements

10. Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether thefinancial 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. Reasonableassurance is a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted inaccordance with SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists.Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if individuallyor in the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisionsof users taken on the basis of these financial statements.

11. As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exerciseprofessional judgment and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also:

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financialstatements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsiveto those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide abasis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting fromfraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusionforgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internal control.

Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit inorder to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under Section143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether thecompany has adequate internal financial controls with reference to financial statements inplace 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 theCompany to 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.

12. 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.

13. We also provide those charged with governance with a statement thatwe have complied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and tocommunicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thoughtto bear on our independence and where applicable related safeguards.

14. From the matters communicated with those charged with governancewe determine 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 publicdisclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that amatter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doingso would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.
