Key Audit Matters

These matterswere addressed in the context of our audit of the standalone financial statements as awhole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion onthese matters.
|Key Audit Matter ||How our audit addressed the key audit matter |
|Inventory Valuation || |
| Inventory forms a significant part of the Company's inventory for which the Company enters into commodity contracts. The Company takes a structured approach to the identification quantification and hedging of such risk by using derivatives in commodities. ||Our audit procedures over inventory valuation included the following: |
| Inventories are measured at the lower of cost and net realizable value on first in first out basis except for inventories qualifying as hedged items in a fair value hedge relationship. These inventories are measured at cost adjusted for the hedging gain or loss on the hedged item. || Testing the design implementation and operating effectiveness of key internal financial controls including controls over valuation of inventory accounting of derivative and hedging transactions; |
| || Testing on a sample basis the accuracy of cost for inventory by verifying the actual purchase cost. Testing the net realizable value by comparing actual cost with most recent retail price; |
| We focused on this area because of its size the assumptions used in the valuation and the complexity which are relevant when determining the amounts recorded. || Testing on a sample basis the hedging relationship of eligible hedging instruments and hedged items. |

The Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the company's financialreporting process.
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 weexercise professional 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 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.
Obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding the financial statementsof the company to express an opinion on the financial statements. Materiality is themagnitude of misstatements in the Financial Results that individually or in aggregatemakes it probable that the economic decisions of a reasonably knowledgeable user of theFinancial Results may be influenced. We consider quantitative materiality and qualitativefactors in (i) planning the scope of our audit work and in evaluating the results of ourwork; and (ii) to evaluate the effect of any identified misstatements in the FinancialResults. 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. We alsoprovide those charged with governance with a statement that we have complied with relevantethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with them allrelationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on ourindependence and where applicable related safeguards.

We have audited the internal financial controls over financial reporting of M/s ShreeSteel Wires Ropes Limited ("the Company") as of 31 March 2022 in conjunctionwith our audit of the financial statements of the Company for the year ended on that date.In our opinion the Company has in all material respects an adequate internal financialcontrols system over financial reporting and such internal financial controls overfinancial reporting were operating effectively as at 31 March 2022 based on the internalcontrol over financial reporting criteria established by the Company considering theessential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of InternalFinancial Controls Over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute of CharteredAccountants of India.

The Company's management is responsible for establishing and maintaining internalfinancial controls based on the internal control over financial reporting criteriaestablished by the Company considering the essential components of internal control statedin the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reportingissued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI').

Those Standards and the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethicalrequirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whetheradequate internal financial controls over financial reporting was established andmaintained and if such controls operated effectively in all material respects. Our auditinvolves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacy of the internalfinancial controls system over financial reporting and their operating effectiveness. Ouraudit of internal financial controls over financial reporting included obtaining anunderstanding of internal financial controls over financial reporting assessing the riskthat a material weakness exists and testing and evaluating the design and operatingeffectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. The procedures selecteddepend on the auditor's judgment including the assessment of the risks of materialmisstatement of the financial statements whether due to fraud or error. We believe thatthe audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis forour audit opinion on the Company's internal financial controls system over financialreporting.
Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
A company's internal financial control over financial reporting is a process designedto provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and thepreparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generallyaccepted accounting principles. A company's internal financial control over financialreporting 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
Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financialreporting including the possibility of collusion or improper management override ofcontrols material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls over financialreporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial controlover financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or thatthe degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
