Qualified Opinion

As per Ind AS 109 "Financial Instruments" the investment inequity shares (other than subsidiary associates and joint ventures) are recognized atfair value through Profit and Loss Account or Fair Value through Other ComprehensiveIncome However the company has recognized the Non-current Investments in equity shares(other than subsidiary associates and joint ventures) at Cost amounting Rs. 45000 only asappearing in the Standalone Ind As Balance Sheet as at March 31 2021 and March 31 2020which constitutes a departure from the AS-109 "Financial Instruments".

Therefore financial impact on account of the difference between thefair value and the cost of Non-Current investment in the "Non-CurrentInvestment" "Other Equity" and "Other Comprehensive Income" and"Deferred Tax" are not ascertainable. This matter was also reported in theprevious year.

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters statedin section 134(5) of the Companies Act 2013 ("the Act") with respect to thepreparation of these Standalone IndAS Financial Statements that give a true and fair viewof the financial position financial performance and cash flows and changes in equity ofthe Company in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in Indiaincluding the Accounting Standards specified under Section 133 of the Act read with Rule7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules 2014.

The Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing thecompany's financial reporting process.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements

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. 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 financial statements

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professionaljudgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of thestandalone financial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform auditprocedures responsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient andappropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a materialmisstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraudmay involve collusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the overrideof internal control.

Obtain an understanding of internal financial controls relevant to theaudit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Undersection 143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion onwhether the Company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and theoperating 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 Ind AS Standalone Financial Statements or if such disclosuresare inadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidenceobtained up to the date of our auditor's report. However future events or conditions maycause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern.

Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the Ind ASStandalone Financial Statements including the disclosures and whether the standalonefinancial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner thatachieves fair presentation.

Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the standalonefinancial statements that individually or in aggregate makes it probable that theeconomic decisions of a reasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may beinfluenced. We consider quantitative materiality and qualitative factors in

(i) planning the scope of our audit work and in evaluating the resultsof our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effect of any identified misstatements in thefinancial statements.

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.

We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that wehave 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.

From the matters communicated with those charged with governance wedetermine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the standalonefinancial statements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. Wedescribe these 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.
