Basis for Qualified Opinion
We draw attention to following notes to the accompanying financial statements for theyear ended March 31 2021:
1. Regarding admission of the Company into Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process("CIRP") and pending determination of obligations and liabilities includingvarious claims submitted by the Operational/financial/other creditors and employeesincluding interest payable on loans during CIRP. We are unable to comment the accountingimpact and disclosure there of pending reconciliation and determination of finalobligation.
The Company accordingly has not provided interest on borrowings amounting to Rs.69.31Lakhs for the CIRP period for year ended March 31 2021 as per the terms of borrowings.Had such interest as mentioned above has been provided the reported loss for the yearended March 31 2021 would have been Rs. 190.28 Lakhs and total Equity of the Companywould have been Rs. (1001.66) Lakhs. Non provision of interest on borrowings is not incompliance with Ind AS 23 "Borrowing Costs".
2. Regarding the pending comprehensive review of carrying amount of all the assets andliabilities as at March 31 2021 hence no provision in the books of account has been madeby the Company. In the absence of assessment of impairment by the Company & pendingconfirmation we are unable to comment on the recoverable/payable amount with regards tosaid terms and consequential impact if any on the Statement. Non determination of fairvalue of financial assets & liabilities and carrying amount for other assets andliabilities are not in compliance with Ind AS 109- Financial Instruments and Ind AS 37-Provisions Contingent Liabilities & Contingent Assets.
3. Regarding non adoption of Ind AS 116 "Leases" effective from April 012019 and the consequent impact thereof. The aforesaid accounting treatment is not inaccordance with the relevant Indian Accounting Standard Ind-AS 116.
4. Regarding continuous losses incurred by the Company current liabilities exceedingits current assets default in repayment of borrowings and default in payment ofregulatory and statutory dues. This situation indicates that a material uncertainty existsthat may cast significant doubt on the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.The accounts however has been prepared by the management on a going concern basis for thereason stated in the aforesaid note. We however are unable to obtain sufficient andappropriate audit evidence regarding management's use of the going concern basis ofaccounting in the preparation of the financial statements in view of on-going CorporateInsolvency Resolution Process the outcome of which cannot be presently ascertained.
We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) specifiedunder Section 143(10) of the Companies Act 2013 (the Act). Our responsibilities underthose Standards are further described in the Auditor's Responsibilities for Audit of thefinancial statements section of our report.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient andappropriate to provide a basis for our opinion.
Material Uncertainty Relating to Going Concern
We draw attention to Note 37 of the Statement in view of ongoing CIRP the outcome ofwhich cannot be presently ascertained and other matters mentioned above. The Companycontinues to incur losses and its current liabilities exceed current assets itsmanufacturing operations haven temporarily suspended and there is considerable decline inthe level of operations. Further the Company has defaulted in repayment of its borrowingsand payment of statutory dues.
These events raise significant doubt on the ability of the Company to continue as a"Going Concern". These events or conditions along with other matters indicatethat a material uncertainty exists that may cast significant doubt on the Company'sability to continue as a going concern.
Our opinion is not modified in respect of the above matter.

Auditors' 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. 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 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 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 Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the company hasadequate internal financial controls with reference to standalone financial statements inplace 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.

We have audited the internal financial controls with reference to financial statementsof STARLITE COMPONENTS LIMITED ("the Company") as of 31st March 2021 inconjunction with our audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements of the Companyfor the year ended on that date.
Management's Responsibility for Internal Financial Controls
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). These responsibilitiesinclude the design implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controlsthat were operating effectively for ensuring the orderly and efficient conduct of itsbusiness including adherence to company's policies the safeguarding of its assets theprevention and detection of frauds and errors the accuracy and completeness of theaccounting records and the timely preparation of reliable financial information asrequired under the Companies Act 2013.
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's internal financialcontrols over financial reporting based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordancewith the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting(the "Guidance Note") issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Indiaand the Standards on Auditing prescribed under Section 143(10) of the Act to the extentapplicable to an audit of internal financial controls. Those Standards and the GuidanceNote require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit toobtain reasonable assurance about whether adequate internal financial controls overfinancial reporting was established and maintained and if such controls operatedeffectively in all material respects.
Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacy ofthe internal financial controls system over financial reporting and their operatingeffectiveness. Our audit of internal financial controls over financial reporting includedobtaining an understanding of internal financial controls over financial reportingassessing the risk that a material weakness exists and testing and evaluating the designand operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. The proceduresselected depend on the auditor's judgment including the assessment of the risks ofmaterial misstatement of the financial statements whether due to fraud or error.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our audit opinion on the Company's internal financial controls systemwith reference to financial statements.
Meaning of Internal Financial Controls with reference to financial statements
A company's internal financial control with reference to financial statements is aprocess designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financialreporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordancewith generally accepted accounting principles.
A company's internal financial control over financial reporting includes those policiesand procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detailaccurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of thecompany;
(2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permitpreparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accountingprinciples and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only inaccordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and
(3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection ofunauthorized acquisition use or disposition of the company's assets that could have amaterial effect on the financial statements.
Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls with reference to financialstatements
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.
Basis of Qualified Opinion
According to the information and explanations given to us and based on our audit thefollowing material weaknesses has been identified in the operating effectiveness of theCompany's internal financial controls over financial statements as at March 31 2021:

A 'material weakness' is a deficiency or a combination of deficiencies in internalfinancial control over financial statements such that there is a reasonable possibilitythat a material misstatement of the Company's financial statements will not be preventedor detected on a timely basis.
In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanationsgiven to us except for the effects/possible effects of the material weaknesses describedabove under Basis for Qualified Opinion paragraph on the achievement of the objectives ofthe control criteria the Company has in all material respects an adequate internalfinancial controls system with reference to financial statements and such internalfinancial controls over financial statements were operating effectively as at March 312021 based on the internal control over financial statements criteria established by theCompany considering the essential components of internal control stated in the GuidanceNote on Audit of Internal financial controls over financial statements issued by the ICAI.
