These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of thestandalone Ind AS financial statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon andwe do not provide a separate opinion on these matters. For each matter below ourdescription of how our audit addressed the matter is provided in that context. We havedetermined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to be communicated inour report. We have fulfilled the responsibilities described in the Auditor'sresponsibilities for the audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements section ofour report including in relation to these matters. Accordingly our audit included theperformance of procedures designed to respond to our assessment of the risks of materialmisstatement of the standalone Ind AS financial statements. The results of our auditprocedures including the procedures performed to address the matters below provide thebasis for our audit opinion on the accompanying standalone Ind AS financial statements.

Key audit matters How our audit addressed the key audit matter
Impairment of loans and investments in subsidiaries (as described in note 51 of the financial statements)
As at March 31 2019 the carrying values of the Company's interests in subsidiaries namely D S Digital Private Limited ("DS Digital") and Safari Digital Education Initiative Private Limited ("Safari Digital") amounted to INR 413.40 million and INR 442.68 million respectively. Management reviewed regularly whether there are any indicators of impairment of the investments. Impairment indicators were observed on the loans and investments in DS Digital and Safari Digital. As a result an impairment assessment was required to be performed by comparing the carrying value of these subsidiaries to their recoverable amount to determine whether an impairment was required to be recognized. Our audit procedures performed included the following:
• Assessment of the report produced by the third-party specialists as well as the assessment of their competence and objectivity; we also assessed the Company's valuation methodology applied in determining the recoverable amount the assumptions around the key drivers of the cash flow forecasts with reference to expected growth rates.
For loans the Company adopted an individual impairment assessment approach for each individual loan. In assessing the recoverability management exercised judgements to evaluate the collectability considering whether DS Digital and Safari Digital have financial difficulties in repaying the loans. • Assessment of the accuracy of actual results against previous forecasts;
• Assessment of the long-term growth rates and discount rates.
• We reviewed the amalgamation scheme filed with SEBI.
For investments where impairment indicators exist management estimated the recoverable amounts of the investments being higher of fair value less costs of disposal and value in use. The value in use of the underlying businesses is determined based on the discounted cash flow projections. The recoverable amount was determined in accordance with Ind AS 36 Impairment of Assets to be the higher of the fair value less cost of disposal and the value in use determined by discounting future cash flows. • We analyzed whether accumulated losses pertaining to education business which is to be merged are available for utilization by the Company.
The processes and methodologies for assessing and determining the recoverable amount are based on management' judgment with reference to the identification of impairment indicators to forecast of future cash flows the normalized cash flows assumed as a basis for the terminal value as well as the long-term growth rates and discount rates applied to such cash flows forecasts. • We assessed the adequacy of the disclosures made in the financial statements.
Apart from regularly assessing the impairment indicators as mentioned above during the year ended Mar'18 the Company had filed a scheme with SEBI for merger of education business of both Safari Digital and DS Digital. As per management this merger was initiated in view of better synergy of operations of education business of both subsidiaries. In view of this the Company has assessed for impairment in these subsidiaries for the remaining business operations (i.e. non-education business). Based on the recoverable value the Company has recognized impairment loss of INR 50 million pertaining to non-education business of DS Digital.
In consideration of the judgment required and assumptions used in the estimate of the recoverable amount we have considered that this area represents a key audit matter.
Provisions for doubtful debts (As described in 2.1 of the financial statements)
The Company is required to regularly assess the recoverability of its trade receivables. The recoverability of trade receivables was significant to our audit due to the value of amounts aged greater than the credit terms extended to customers. In obtaining sufficient audit evidence over the carrying value of trade receivables we:
The provisions for doubtful debts are determined through expected credit loss model under Ind AS 109 Financial Instruments. This involves judgement as the expected credit losses must reflect information about past events current conditions and forecasts of future conditions as well as the time value of money. • Tested the ageing of trade receivables for a sample of customer transactions;
• Tested subsequent receipts after year-end on sample basis;
• Considered the customers' historical payment trends.
The Company's disclosures are included in Note 5C and Note 2.1 to the financial statements which outlines the accounting policy for determining the allowance for doubtful debts and details of the period on period movement in gross and net trade receivables. • We assessed the Company's provisioning policy which included assessing the calculation required under Ind AS 109.
• We assessed whether the time value of money was considered in the expected credit loss impairment model and checked the mathematical accuracy of the calculations.
• We assessed the adequacy of the Company's disclosures in relation to trade receivables included in the financial statements.
Provision for Sales return (as described in note 50 of the financial statements)
The company is involved in publishing and distribution of educational books. Due to the nature of business significant amount of returns are received in the years subsequent to the year when books are sold. Provision for such sales returns are estimated deducted from gross sales and recorded as a deduction from accounts receivable. Our audit procedures included the following:
• We obtained management's calculations for provision for sales returns recalculated the amounts for mathematical accuracy and tested controls related to approval of sales return as per authority matrix i.e. budget evaluated the assumptions used by reference to internal sources (i.e. management budgets) historical sales returns levels.
Estimates of expected future sales returns are required to be made at the time of sale. When determining the appropriate allowance management considers historical trends as a basis for the estimate as well as all other known factors which could significantly influence the level of future sales returns. Significant judgement is required in assessing the appropriate level of the provision for sales return. • We considered the accuracy of management's estimates in previous years by comparing historical provisions to the actual amounts to assess the management ability to accurately estimate their sales return allowance.
Such judgements include management's expectations of forecast sales return and historical estimates of sales return vis a vis the sales made during the year. • We considered the adequacy of the Company's revenue recognition accounting policies including the recognition and measurement of deductions to gross sales relating to sales returns and related disclosures.
During the year ended March 31 2019 the Company also experienced significant sales returns in relation to sales made during year-ended March 31 2018 primarily due to unknown business facts which were either not anticipated by the management or was outside the ordinary course of business. • We tested the sales return after the balance sheet date to determine whether the revenue has been recognized in the appropriate period or not.

Our objectives are 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 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 standalone Ind AS financial statements.

However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue asa going concern.
