Key Audit Matters
Key audit matters ('KAM') are those matters that in our professional judgment were ofmost significance in our audit of the standalone financial statements of the currentperiod. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the standalonefinancial statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not providea separate opinion on these matters.
We have determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to becommunicated in our report
|Key Audit Matters ||How our audit addressed the key audit matter |
|Revenue Recognition (as described in note 1 (i) of the standalone Ind AS financial statements) ||Principal audit procedures |
|For the year ended March 31 2022 the Company has recognized revenue from contracts with customers amounting to Rs190307 lakhs. ||Our audit procedures included the following: Assessed the Company's revenue recognition policy prepared as per Ind AS 115 'Revenue from contracts with customers'. |
|Revenue from contracts with customers is recognized when control of the goods or services are transferred to the customer at an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The Company has generally concluded that as principal it typically controls the goods or services before transferring them to the customer. |
| Assessed the design and tested the operating effectiveness of internal controls related to revenue recognition discounts and rebates. |
| Performed sample tests of individual sales transaction and traced to sales invoices sales orders and other related documents. Further in respect of the samples checked that the revenue has been recognized as per the shipping terms. |
|The variety of terms that define when control are transferred to the customer as well as the high value of the transactions give rise to the risk that revenue is not recognized in the correct period. |
| To test cut off selected sample of sales transactions made pre- and post-year end agreeing the period of revenue recognition to third party support such as transporter invoice and customer confirmation of receipt of goods. |
|Revenue is measured net of returns and allowances cash discounts trade discounts and volume rebates (collectively 'discount and rebates'). There is a risk that these discount and rebates are incorrectly recorded as it also requires a certain degree of estimation resulting in understatement of the associated expenses and accrual. |
| Tested the provision calculations related to management incentives discounts and rebates by agreeing a sample of amounts recognized to underlying arrangements with customers and other supporting documents. |
|Revenue is also an important element of how the Company measures its performance. The Company focuses on revenue as a key performance measure which could create an incentive for revenue to be recognized before the risk and rewards have been transferred. || |
|Accordingly due to the significant risk associated with revenue recognition in accordance with terms of Ind AS 115 'Revenue from contracts with customers' it was determined to be a key audit matter in our audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements. || |
|Claims against the company not acknowledged as debts As at 31 st march 2022 the company has exposures to litigation relating to various matters as set out in note no. 40(a). Significant management judgement is required to assess such matters to determine the probability of occurrence of material outflow of economic resources and whether a provision should be recognised or a disclosure should be made. The management judgement is supported with legal advice in certain cases as considered appropriate. ||Principal audit procedures |
|Our audit procedures included the following substantive procedures: |
| We understood assessed and tested the design and operating effectiveness of key controls surrounding assessment of litigations relating to relevant laws and regulations. |
| Obtained details of all the claims against the Company for the year ended 31st March 2022 from the management. |
|At the ultimate outcomes of the matters are uncertain and the position taken by the management are based on application of their best judgement related legal advice including those relating to interpretation of laws/ regulations it is considered to be a key audit matter. || Read and analysed key correspondences legal opinion and consultations by the management. |
| Discussed with the appropriate senior management and evaluated management's estimate of the possible outcome of the disputed cases. |
| ||Based on the above procedures management's assessment in respect of litigations and related disclosures relating to contingent liabilities/other significant litigations in the Standalone Financial Statements are considered to be reasonable. |

In connection with our audit of the standalone financia statements our responsibilityis to read the other information and in doing so consider whether the other informationis materially inconsistent with the standalone financial statements or our knowledgeobtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated.

The Company's management and Board of Directors are responsible for the matters statedin Section 134(5) of the Act with respect to the preparation of these standalone financialstatements that give a true and fair view of the state of affairs profit / loss(including other comprehensive income) changes in equity and cash flows of the Company inaccordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India including theIndian Accounting Standards (Ind AS) specified under Section 133 of the Act.

Board of Directors is also responsible for overseeing the Company's financial reportingprocess.
Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalonefinancial 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 financial statements.
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 standalonefinancial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit proceduresresponsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatementresulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involvecollusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internalcontrol.
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 Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether thecompany has adequate internal financial controls with reference to standalone financialstatements in place and the operating effectiveness 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 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 ourauditors' 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 standalonefinancial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalone financialstatements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.
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 standalone financial statementsof the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these mattersin our auditors' report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about thematter or when 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.

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.
In our opinion to the best of our information and according to the explanations givento us the Company has in all material respects an adequate internal financial controlssystem over financial reporting and such internal financial controls over financialreporting were operating effectively as at 31st March 2022 based on the internal controlover financial reporting criteria established by the Company considering the essentialcomponents of internal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal FinancialControls Over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants ofIndia.
