Auditors' Responsibility

A. Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standaloneInd ASfinancial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraudor error and to issue an auditors' report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assuranceis a high level or assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordancewith Standard on Auditing will always detect a material misstatement when it exists.Misstatement can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if individually orin the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions ofusers taken on the basis of these financial statements.

B. As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgement andmaintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also: i) Identify and assess therisks of material misstatement of the standalone financial statements whether due tofraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks and obtainaudit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. Therisk of 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. ii) Obtain an understanding ofinternal financial controls relevant to the audit in order to design audit procedures thatare appropriate in the circumstances. Under Section 143(3)(i) of the Act we are alsoresponsible for expressing our opinion on whether the Company has adequate internalfinancial controls system in place and operating effectiveness of such controls. iii)Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness ofaccounting estimates and related disclosures made by management. iv) Conclude on theappropriateness of management's use of the going concern basis of accounting and based onthe audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertainty exists related to events orconditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company's ability to continue as a goingconcern If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists we are required to drawattention in our auditors' report to the related disclosures in the Standalone FinancialStatements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusionsare based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor's report. Howeverfuture events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern.v) Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the Standalone FinancialStatements including the disclosures and whether the Standalone Financial Statementsrepresent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.

C. Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the Standalone Financial Statementsthat individually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the Standalone Financial Statements may be influenced. Weconsider quantitative materiality and qualitative factors in (i) planning the scope of ouraudit work and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effect ofany identified misstatements in the Standalone Financial Statements.

D. 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.

E. We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we have compliedwith relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with them allrelationships and other matters that may reasonable be thought to bear on ourindependence and where applicable related safeguards.

F. From the matters communicated with those charged with governance we determine thosematters that were of most significance in the audit of the Standalone Financial Statementsof the current period and are therefore the key audit matters.
