2. In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanationsgiven to us the aforesaid standalone financial statements give the information requiredby the Companies Act 2013 (the ‘Act') in the manner so required and give a true andfair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in Indiaincluding Indian Accounting Standards (‘Ind AS') specified under Section 133 of theAct of the state of affairs (financial position) of the Company as at 31 March 2019 andits profit (financial performance including other comprehensive income) its cash flowsand the changes in equity for the year ended on that date.

Basis for Opinion

3. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing specified underSection 143(10) of the Act. Our responsibilities under those standards are furtherdescribed in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statementssection of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with the Code ofEthics issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (‘ICAI') togetherwith the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the financial statementsunder the provisions of the Act and the rules thereunder and we have fulfilled our otherethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements and the Code of Ethics. Webelieve that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to providea basis for our opinion.

Key Audit Matters

4. Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the standalone financial statements of the current period.These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as awhole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion onthese matters.

5. We have determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to becommunicated in our report.

Key audit matter How our audit addressed the key audit matter
Impairment testing of investments in joint venture Our procedures included but were not limited to the following:
Refer Note 5 14 and 34 to the accompanying standalone financial statements • Obtained an understanding of management's process and evaluated design and tested operating effectiveness of controls around identification of indicators of impairment under Ind AS and around valuation of the business of the joint venture to determine recoverable value of the said investment;
As at 31 March 2019 the carrying amount of investment in a joint venture company viz. Raymond UCO Denim Private Limited (the ‘joint venture') is Rs. 4420.79 lakhs (net of provision for diminution in the value of investment of Rs. 13800 lakhs). Further the Company has also invested in preference share capital of the joint venture the carrying amount of which as at 31 March 2019 is Rs. 8378.19 lakhs. • Assessed the appropriateness of methodology and valuation model used by the management to estimate the recoverable value of investment in the joint venture;
The net worth of the joint venture as at 31 March 2019 is fully eroded. Management has considered that the losses suffered by the joint venture and erosion of its net worth indicates a possible impairment in the carrying value of investment. Accordingly the management has performed an impairment assessment and has estimated the recoverable amount of its investment in the joint venture using ‘Discounted Cash Flow valuation model' which is complex and involves the use of significant management estimates and assumptions that are dependent on expected future market and economic conditions. • Assessed the professional competence objectivity and capabilities of the valuation specialist engaged by the management;
• Assessed the reasonableness of assumptions relating to revenue growth rate gross margins discount rates etc. based on historical results current developments and future plans of the business estimated by management using expertise of our valuation specialist on required parameters;
As per such assessment done by the management the carrying value of the investment was impaired by Rs. 2000 lakhs in the current year as disclosed in Note 34 to the financial statements. • Assessed cash flow forecasts to ensure consistency with current operations of the Company and performed sensitivity analysis on key assumptions used in management's calculated recoverable value.
Considering the materiality of the amounts involved the significant management judgement required in estimating the quantum of diminution in the value of investment and such estimates and judgements being inherently subjective this matter has been identified as a key audit matter for the current year audit. • Based on our procedures we also considered the adequacy of disclosures in respect of investment in the said joint venture in the notes to the standalone financial statements.

Information other than the Financial Statements and Auditor's Report thereon

6. 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 financial statements and our auditor's report thereon.

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 StandaloneFinancial Statements

7. 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 financial statementsthat give a true and fair view of the state of affairs (financial position) profit orloss (financial performance including other comprehensive income) changes in equity andcash flows of the Company in accordance with the accounting principles generally acceptedin India including the Ind AS specified under Section 133 of the Act. This responsibilityalso includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisionsof the 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.

8. In preparing the financial statements management is responsible for assessing theCompany's ability to continue as a going concern disclosing as applicable mattersrelated to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless managementeither intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations or has no realisticalternative but to do so.

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

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements

10. 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 withStandards on Auditing 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 Standards on Auditing we exerciseprofessional judgment and maintain professional skepticism 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 in order todesign audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under Section 143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for explaining our opinion on whether the Companyhas adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operating effectivenessof 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 financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion.Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our 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 financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent theunderlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.

12. We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among other mattersthe planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings including anysignificant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit.

13. We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we havecomplied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicatewith them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear onour independence and where applicable related safeguards.

14. From the matters communicated with those charged with governance we determinethose matters that were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements ofthe current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters inour auditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matteror when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not becommunicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonablybe expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.

ANNEXURE B TO THE INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT OF EVEN DATE TO THE MEMBERS OF RAYMONDLIMITED ON THE STANDALONE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 MARCH 2019

ANNEXURE B

Independent Auditor's report on the Internal Financial Controls under Clause (i) ofsub-section 3 of Section 143 of the Companies Act 2013 (the "Act")

1. In conjunction with our audit of the standalone financial statements of RaymondLimited (the "Company") as at and for the year ended 31 March 2019 we haveaudited the internal financial controls over financial reporting (IFCoFR) of the Companyas of that date.

Management's Responsibility for Internal Financial Controls

2. The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for establishing and maintaininginternal financial controls based on the internal control over financial reportingcriteria established by the Company considering the essential components of internalcontrol stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls over FinancialReporting (the "Guidance Note") issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountantsof India (ICAI). These responsibilities include the design implementation and maintenanceof adequate internal financial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring theorderly and efficient conduct of the Company's business including adherence to Company'spolicies the safeguarding of its assets the prevention and detection of frauds anderrors the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records and the timelypreparation of reliable financial information as required under the Act.

Auditors' Responsibility

3. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's IFCoFR based on ouraudit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing issued by theICAI and deemed to be prescribed under Section 143(10) of the Act to the extentapplicable to an audit of IFCoFR and the Guidance Note issued by the ICAI. Those Standardsand the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan andperform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether adequate IFCoFR wereestablished and maintained and if such controls operated effectively in all materialrespects.

4. Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacyof the IFCoFR and their operating effectiveness. Our audit of IFCoFR included obtaining anunderstanding of IFCoFR assessing the risk that a material weakness exists and testingand evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on theassessed risk. The procedures selected depend on the auditor's judgement including theassessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements whether dueto fraud or error.

5. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our audit opinion on the Company's IFCoFR.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting

6. A Company's IFCoFR is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regardingthe reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements forexternal purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A Company'sIFCoFR 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 authorisations ofmanagement and directors of the Company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regardingprevention or timely detection of unauthorised 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

7. Because of the inherent limitations of IFCoFR including the possibility ofcollusion or improper management override of controls material misstatements due to erroror fraud may occur and not be detected. Also projections of any evaluation of the IFCoFRto future periods are subject to the risk that IFCoFR may become inadequate because ofchanges in conditions or that the degree of compliance with the policies or proceduresmay deteriorate.

Opinion

8. In our opinion the Company has in all material respects adequate internalfinancial controls over financial reporting and such internal financial controls overfinancial reporting were operating effectively as at 31 March 2019 based on the internalcontrol over financial reporting criteria established by the Company considering theessential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note issued by the ICAI.
