Basis of Opinion
I conducted my audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) specified underSection 143(10) of the Act. My responsibilities under those SAs are further described inthe 'Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Ind AS Financial Statements' sectionof my report. I am independent of the company in accordance with the Code of Ethics issuedby the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India ('ICAI') and I have fulfilled my otherethical responsibilities in accordance with the provisions of the Act.
I believe that the audit evidence I have obtained is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis of my opinion.
Key Audit Matter
Key audit matters are those matters that in my professional judgment were of mostsignificance in my audit of the standalone financial statements of the current period.These matters were addressed in the context of my audit of the standalone financialstatements as a whole and in forming my opinion thereon and I do not provide a separateopinion on these matters
Assessment of Recoverability of Trade Receivables
The aggregate Trade Receivables as at 31st March 2021 were Rs. 44011.04lakhs which constitute approx. 56% of the Gross Assets of the Company.
The Company reviews the recoverability of the Trade Receivables periodically includingat the Balance Sheet Date. Receivables which are not expected to be recovered are writtenoff as Bad Debts. In addition to the Bad Debts written off provisions made in theAccounts for Expected Credit Loss based on past record of irrecoverable Trade Receivables.
How the Audit addressed the Key Audit matters
The audit procedures included amongst others review of age analysis of TradeReceivables review of Trade Receivables overdue by more than a certain period discussionwith management of the reasons for such overdue trade receivables and the efforts made forrecovery of the same.
The audit procedures also include checking recovery of Trade Receivables as at BalanceSheet Date subsequently up to the date of the audit.
I have considered this to be a key audit matter as the amount of Trade Receivables aremostly unsecured and constitute the largest component of the Balance Sheet and thereforehave a significant impact on the financial position of the Company.
The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the other information. The otherinformation comprises the information included in the Annual report but does not includethe standalone Ind AS financial statements and my auditor's report thereon.
My opinion on the standalone Ind AS financial statement does not cover the otherinformation and I do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.
In connection with my audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements myresponsibility is to read the other information and in doing so consider whether suchother information is materially inconsistent with the financial statements or my knowledgeobtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If based on thework I have performed I conclude that there is a material misstatement of this otherinformation I am required to report that fact. I have nothing to report in this regard.
Management's Responsibility for the Standalone 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 Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS)prescribed under section 133 of the Act read with the Companies (Indian AccountingStandards) Rules 2015 as amended and other accounting principles generally accepted inIndia.
This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records inaccordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding the assets of the Company andfor preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection and application ofappropriate accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable andprudent; and design implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financialcontrols that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness ofthe accounting records relevant to the preparation and presentation of the standalonefinancial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from materialmisstatement whether due to fraud or error.
In preparing the standalone Ind AS financial statements management is responsible forassessing the Company's ability to continue as a going concern disclosing as applicable matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unlessmanagement either intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations or has norealistic alternative but to do so.
Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company's financialreporting process.
Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Ind AS Financial Statements
My objective is 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 my 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 I exercise professional judgment andmaintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. 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 my 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 I am also responsible for expressing my 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 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 I conclude that a material uncertainty existsI am required to draw attention in my auditor's report to the related disclosures in thefinancial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify my opinion. Myconclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of my auditor'sreport. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue asa 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.
I 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 I identify during my audit.
I also provide those charged with governance with a statement that I have complied withrelevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with them allrelationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on my independenceand where applicable related safeguards.
From the matters communicated with those charged with governance I determine thosematters that were of most significance in the audit of the standalone Ind AS financialstatements for the financial year ended March 312021 and are therefore the key auditmatters. I describe these matters in my auditor's report unless law or regulation productsprecludes public disclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances Idetermine 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.

ThoseStandards and the Guidance Note require that I comply with ethical requirements and planand perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether adequate internalfinancial controls over financial reporting was established and maintained and if suchcontrols operated effectively in all material respects
My audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacy ofthe internal financial controls system over financial reporting and their operatingeffectiveness. My audit of internal financial controls over financial reporting includedobtaining an understanding of internal financial controls over financial reportingassessing the risk that a material weakness exists and testing and evaluating the designand operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. The proceduresselected depend on the auditor's judgment including the assessment of the risks ofmaterial misstatement of the standalone Ind AS financial statements whether due to fraudor error. I believe that the audit evidence I have obtained is sufficient and appropriateto provide a basis for my audit opinion on the Company's internal financial controlssystem 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 of records that in reasonable detail accurately andfairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company;
(2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permitpreparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accountingprinciples and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only inaccordance with authorisations of management and directors of the company; and
(3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection ofunauthorised acquisition use or disposition of the company's assets that could have amaterial 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 inadequate because of changes in conditions or thatthe degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In my opinion the Company has in all material respects an adequate internalfinancial controls system over financial reporting and such internal financial controlsover financial reporting were operating effectively as at 31st March 2021based on the internal control over financial reporting criteria established by the Companyconsidering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note onAudit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute ofChartered Accountants of India.
