Key Audit Matters
Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period. These matterswere addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a whole and informing our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters.
Description of each key audit matter in accordance with SA 701:
|The Key Audit Matter ||How the matter was addressed in our Audit |
|Revenue Recognition ||Principal Audit Procedures |
|Revenue from the sale of goods (hereinafter referred to as Revenue) is recognised when the Company performs its obligation to its customers and the amount of revenue can be measured reliably and recovery of the consideration is probable. The timing of such recognition in case of sale of goods is when the control over the same is transferred to the customer which is mainly upon delivery. The timing of revenue recognition is relevant to the reported performance of the Company. The management considers revenue as a key measure for evaluation of performance. ||Our audit approach was a combination of test of internal controls and substantive procedures including: |
|There is a risk of revenue being recorded before control is transferred. || Assessing the appropriateness of the Company's revenue recognition accounting policies in line with Ind AS 115 (Revenue from Contracts with Customers) and testing thereof. |
|Refer to the Standalone Financial Statements - Significant Accounting Policies || Evaluating the integrity of the general information and technology control environment and testing the operating effectiveness of key IT application controls. |
| || Evaluating the design and implementation of |
| ||Company's controls in respect of revenue recognition. |
| || Testing the effectiveness of such controls over revenue cut off at year-end. |
| || Testing the supporting documentation for sales transactions recorded during the period closer to the year end and subsequent to the year end including examination of credit notes issued after the year end to determine whether revenue was recognised in the correct period. |
| || Performing analytical procedures on current year revenue based on monthly trends and where appropriate conducting further enquiries and testing |
|Measurement of Investment in accordance with Ind AS 109 Financial Instruments ||Principal Audit procedure: |
|On initial recognition investment are recognized at fair value in vase of investment which are recognized at fair value through FVOCI. In that case that transaction costs are attributable to the acquisition value of the investments. || Obtaining an understanding of the companies objectives for such investments and assessment thereof in terms of Ind AS 109. |
|The Company's investment are subsequently classified into following categories based on the objective to manage the cash flows and options available in the standard: || Obtaining an understanding of the determination of the measurement of the investments and tested the reasonableness of the significant judgement applied by the management. |
| At amortised cost || Evaluated the design of internal controls relating to measurement and also tested the operating effectiveness of the aforesaid controls. |
| At fair value through profit or loss (FVTPL) || |
| At fair value through Other comprehensive Income (FVTOCI) || Obtaining understanding of basis of valuation adopted in respect of fair value investment and ensured that valuation techniques used are appropriate in circumstances and for which sufficient data are available to measure fair value. |
|The company has assessed following two objectives: || |
| Held to collect contractual cash flows. || |
| Realising cash flows through sale of investments. The Company makes decision based on assets fair value and manages the assets to realize those fair values. || Assessed the appropriateness of the discloser in the standalone financial statements in accordance with the applicable financial reporting framework. |
|Since valuation of investment at fair value involves critical assumptions significant risk in valuation and complexity in assessment of objectives the valuation of investments as per Ind AS 109 is determined to be a key audit matter in our audit of the standalone financial statements. || |
|Refer Note 4 to the standalone financial statements. || |

Management's Responsibility for the Standalone Financial Statements
The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in section134(5) of the Companies Act 2013 (the Act) with respect to the preparation ofthese standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financialposition financial performance (changes in equity)5 and cash flows of the Company inaccordance with6 the accounting principles generally accepted in India including theaccounting Standards specified under section 133 of the Act. This responsibility alsoincludes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions ofthe 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 statement that givea true and fair view and are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud orerror.
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.
Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company's financialreporting 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.
Paragraph 40(b) of this SA explains that the shaded material below can be located in anAppendix to the auditor's report. Paragraph 40(c) explains that when law regulation orapplicable auditing standards expressly permit reference can be made to a website of anappropriate authority that contains the description of the auditor's responsibilitiesrather than including this material in the auditor's report provided that the descriptionon the website addresses and is not inconsistent with the description of the auditor'sresponsibilities below.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintain 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 Companies Act 2013 we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whetherthe company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operatingeffectiveness of 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.
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.
In certain cases the Company has not charged interest on Loans and advances given tovarious parties which is not in accordance with section 186(7) of the Companies Act 2013.Effect on the aforesaid cannot be quantified.
Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.
