We believe that the audit evidence we haveobtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion.

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.There are no Key Audit Matters Reportable as per SA 701 issued by ICAI.

Information Other than the Standalone Financial Statements and Auditor's Report Thereon

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the preparation of the otherinformation. The other information comprises the information included in the ManagementDiscussion and Analysis Board's Report including Annexures to Board's Report but doesnot include the financial statements and our auditor's report thereon. These reports areexpected to be made available to us after the date of our auditor's report. Our opinion onthe financial statements does not cover the other information and we do not express anyform of assurance conclusion thereon. In connection with our audit of the financialstatements our responsibility is to read the other information identified above when itbecomes available and in doing so consider whether the other information is materiallyinconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained in the audit orotherwise appears to be materially misstated. When we read the other information includedin the above reports if we conclude that there is material misstatement therein we arerequired to communicate the matter to those charged with governance and determine theactions under the applicable laws and regulations.

Management's Responsibility for the Financial Statements

Management is responsible for the matters stated in section 134(5) of the CompaniesAct 2013("the Act") with respect to the preparation of these financialstatements that give a true and fair view of the financial position financial performanceand cash flows of the Company in accordance with the accounting principles generallyaccepted in India including accounting standards referred to in section 133 of the Act asapplicable. This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting recordsin accordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Companyand for preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection andapplication of appropriate accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that arereasonable and prudent; and design implementation and maintenance of adequate internalfinancial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy andcompleteness of the accounting records relevant to the preparation and presentation ofthe financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from materialmisstatement whether due to fraud or error. In preparing the financial statementsmanagement is responsible for assessing the Company's ability to continue as a goingconcern disclosing as applicable matters related to going concern and using the goingconcern basis of accounting unless management either intends to liquidate the Company orto cease operations or has no realistic alternative but to do so. Those Board ofDirectors are also responsible for overseeing the Company's financial reporting process.

Auditor's Responsibility

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 standalone financial statements. As part of an audit in accordance withSAs we exercise professional judgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout theaudit. We also:

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the standalone 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 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 standalone financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify ouropinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of ourauditor's report. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease tocontinue as a going concern.

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. We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among othermatters the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findingsincluding any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during ouraudit. We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we havecomplied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicatewith them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear onour independence and where applicable related safeguards. From the matters communicatedwith those charged with governance we determine those matters that were of mostsignificance in the audit of the standalone financial statements of the current period andare therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in our auditor's reportunless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter or when inextremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not be communicated in ourreport because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonably be expected tooutweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
