We have audited the internal financial controls over financial reporting of STARHOUSING FINANCE LIMITED (the "Cornpany") as of March 312022 in conjunction withour audit of thefinancial statements of the Companyforthe year ended onthat date.Management'sResponsibility for Internal Financial Controls
The Company's management Is responsible for establishing and maintaining internalfinancial controls based on the internal control over financial rep>orting criteriaestablished by the Company considering the essential components of internal control statedin the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Rnancial Controls Over Financial Reportingissued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (the "Guidance Note ').These responsibilities include the design. imp>lementation and maintenance of adequateinternal financial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring the orderly andefficient conduct of its business including adherence to the company's policies thesafeguarding of its assets the prevention and detection of frauds and errors theaccuracy and completeness of the accounting records and thetimety preparation of reliablefinancial information as required under the Act.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reportir>g
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 p>olicies and procedures that(1) pertain to the maintenanceofrecords that in reasonable detail accurately and feirty reflect thetrarsactionsanddispositions of the assets of ihe company; (2) provide reasonable assurancethat transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statementsin accordance v/ith 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 urtauthorised acquisition use or disposition of thecompany's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Inherent Limitatlorts of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting
Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financialreporting including the p>ossibility of collusion or
improper management override of a>ntrois material misstatements due to error orfraud may occur and rrot be detected. Also projections of any evaluation of the interna!financial controls over financial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk thatthe interrial financial control over financial reporting may become inadequate because ofchanges in conditions or that the degree of compliance with the policies or proceduresmay 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 financialreportir>g were operating effectively as at March 312022 based on the criteria forinternal financial control over financial reporting established by the Company consideringthe essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note.
