We believethat the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basisfor our opinion on these financial statements.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the financial statements for the financial year ended 31stMarch 2019. 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.

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 thefinancial statements our responsibility is to read the other information and in doingso consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the standalonefinancial statements or our knowledge obtained during the course of our audit or otherwiseappears to be materially misstated. If based on the work we have performed we concludethat there is a material misstatement of this other information we are required to reportthat fact. We have nothing to report in this regard.

Management's responsibility for the financial statements

The Company's board of directors are responsible for the matters stated in section 134(5) of the Act with respect to the preparation of these financial statements that give atrue and fair view of the financial position financial performance and cash flows of theCompany in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in Indiaincluding the accounting standards specified under section 133 of the Act read with theCompanies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules 2015 as amended.

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 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 assessthe risks of material misstatement of the financial statements whether due to fraud orerror design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks and obtain auditevidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The riskof not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for oneresulting from 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 theCompanies Act 2013 we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether thecompany has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operatingeffectiveness of such 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 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 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 with those charged with governance we determine thosematters that were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements of thecurrent period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in ourauditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter orwhen 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.
