BASIS FOR OPINION

We conducted our audit of the standalone financial statements in accordance with theStandards on Auditing specified under section 143(10) of the Act (SAs). Ourresponsibilities under those Standards are further described in the Auditor’sResponsibility for the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements section of our report.We are independent of the Company in accordance with the Code of Ethics issued by theInstitute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) together with the ethical requirementsthat are relevant to our audit of the standalone financial statements under the provisionsof the Act and the Rules made thereunder and we have fulfilled our other ethicalresponsibilities in accordance with these requirements and the ICAI’s Code of Ethics.We believe that the audit evidence obtained by us is sufficient and appropriate to providea basis for our audit opinion on the standalone financial statements.

KEY AUDIT MATTERS

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the standalone financial statements of the current period.These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the standalone financialstatements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide aseparate opinion on these matters. We have determined the matters described below to bethe key audit matters to be communicated in our report.

Sl.No. Key Audit Matter Response to Key Audit Matter
1 Revenue recognition: Principal audit procedures performed:
The Company’s revenues are as disclosed in Note 26 of the standalone financial statements arising from sale of pharmaceuticals products which are in the nature of API (i.e. Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients). The Company recognises sales revenue based on the terms and conditions of transactions which vary with different customers. For sales transactions in a certain period around balance sheet date it is essential to ensure whether the transfer of control of the goods by the Company to the customer occurs before the balance sheet date or otherwise. Considering that there are significant volume of sales transactions close to the year end involving material amounts and such revenue recognition is subject to whether transfer of control to the customers has occurred before the balance sheet date or otherwise we consider the risk of revenue from sale of goods being recognised in the incorrect period a key audit matter. (i) We evaluated the design and implementation of internal controls over recognition of revenue in the appropriate period in accordance with the Company’s accounting policy. On a sample basis we tested the operating effectiveness of the internal control relating to determination of point in time at which the transfer of control of the goods occurs.
(ii) We tested the relevant underlying information technology systems used in recording revenue including company’s system generated reports based on which selection of samples was undertaken.
(iii) On sample basis we performed test of details of sales recorded close to the year-end through following procedures:
• Analysed the terms and conditions of the underlying contract with the customer and
• Verified evidence for transfer of control of the goods prior to the balance sheet date or otherwise from relevant supporting documents.

Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company’sfinancial reporting process.

AUDITOR’S RESPONSIBILITY 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. Reasonableassurance is a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted inaccordance with SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists.Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if individuallyor in the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisionsof users taken 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 financial control relevant to the audit inorder to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section143(3)(i) of the Act 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 reasonablenessof accounting estimates and related disclosures made by the management.

• Conclude on the appropriateness of management’s use of the going concernbasis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a materialuncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on theCompany’s ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a materialuncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in our auditor’s report to therelated disclosures in the standalone financial statements or if such disclosures areinadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidenceobtained up to the date of our auditor’s report. However future events or conditionsmay cause the Company to cease to continue 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.

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.

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 auditor’s report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure aboutthe matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should notbe communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so wouldreasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
