Description of Key Audit Matter

Impairment assessment of long-term investments in subsidiaries
The key audit matter How the matter was addressed in our audit
The Company has long-term investments in subsidiaries as at March 31 2021. The Company assesses investment in subsidiaries at each reporting date for any impairment indicators based on internal or external sources of information. Where such indicators exist the Company performs impairment testing. In view of the signifi cance of the matter we performed the following key audit procedures:
The changes in business environment including impact of COVID-19 pandemic on budgets and forecasts and uncertainties caused by external factors affecting estimated performance of subsidiaries has triggered impairment testing in respect of certain subsidiaries. • Assessed the design implementation and operating effectiveness of key controls in respect of the Company’s impairment analysis process including evaluation and approval of forecasts and the valuation model used;
As impairment assessment involves significant estimates and judgements it is a key area of focus in our audit. • Examined the valuation reports of the independent third-party specialists as engaged by the Company;

The key audit matter How the matter was addressed in our audit
Determination of tax provisions and assessment of contingent liabilities involves judgment with respect to various tax positions on deductibility of expenditure interpretation of laws and regulations etc. Judgment is also required in assessing the range of possible outcomes for these matters.

The Company and its external stakeholders focus on revenue as a key performance metric and the Company uses various shipment terms across its operating markets. • Assessed the Company’s accounting policy for revenue recognition as per applicable accounting standards.
Revenue recognition has been identified as a key audit matter as there could be an incentive or external pressures to meet expectations resulting in revenue being overstated or recognized before control has been transferred. • Tested the design implementation and operating effectiveness of key controls relating to revenue recognition.
• Performed substantive testing of revenue transactions recorded during the year using statistical sampling by verifying the underlying documents.

Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone Ind AS fi financialstatements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the Standalone Ind ASfinancial 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 Ind AS 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 Standalone Ind ASfinancial 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 the company hasadequate internal financial controls with reference to financial statements in place andthe operating effectiveness of such controls.

• Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonablenessof accounting estimates and related disclosures in the Standalone Ind AS financialstatements made by the Management and Board of Directors.

• Conclude on the appropriateness of the Management and Board of Directors use ofthe going concern basis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether amaterial uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significantdoubt on the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that amaterial uncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in our auditor’sreport to the related disclosures in the Standalone Ind AS financial statements or ifsuch disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on theaudit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor’s report. However futureevents or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern.

• Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the Standalone IndAS financial statements including the disclosures and whether the Standalone Ind ASfinancial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner thatachieves fair presentation.

We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among other matters theplanned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings including anysignificant defi ciencies 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 signifi cance in the audit of the Standalone Ind AS financialstatements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describethese matters in our auditors’ report unless law or regulation precludes publicdisclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that amatter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doingso would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.

Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacy ofthe internal fi financial controls with reference to financial statements and theiroperating effectiveness.

Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls withreference to Standalone fi financial statements to future periods are subject to the riskthat the internal financial controls with reference to standalone financial statements maybecome inadequate because of changes in conditions or that the degree of compliance withthe policies or procedures may deteriorate.
