Basis for Opinion

We conducted our audit of standalone financial statements in accordance with theStandards on Auditing (SAs) specified under section 143(10) of the Act. Ourresponsibilities under those Standards are further described in the Auditor'sResponsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements section of our report. We areindependent of the Company in accordance with the Code of Ethics issued by the Instituteof Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) together with the ethical requirements that arerelevant to our audit of the standalone financial statements under the provisions of theAct and the Rules made thereunder and we have fulfilled our other ethicalresponsibilities in accordance with these requirements and the Code of Ethics.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a 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 mostsignificant 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.

Sr. No Key Audit Matters Auditor's response
1. Inventory - existence and valuation Audit procedures performed:
As at March 31 2020 the Company held inventories of Rs.89057 Lakhs. [Also refer Note no. 1.9 and 11 of the standalone financial statements] We have performed following alternative audit procedures over inventory existence and valuations.
Inventories existence and valuation was an audit focus area because of nationwide lockdown imposed by the Government of India in view of pandemic coronavirus (COVID 19). (a) Ensuring the effectiveness of the design implementation and maintenance of controls over changes in inventory to determine whether the conduct of physical inventory verification at a date other than the date of the financial statement is appropriate and testing of those controls whether those have operated effectively.
As explained by the Management due to COVID 19 related restriction on account of nationwide lockdown physical verification of inventories lying at various locations as on the Balance sheet date and subsequently also till the date of this report couldn't be carried out. We have accordingly designated this as a focus area of the audit. (b) Performing procedures to ensure that the changes in inventory between the last verification date and date of the Balance sheet are properly recorded (Roll forward procedures).
(c) Performing substantive analytical procedures to test the correctness of inventory existence and valuation.
(d) Testing of accuracy of inventory reconciliations with the general ledgers at period end including test of reconciling items.
The procedures performed gave us a sufficient evidence to conclude about the inventory existence and valuation.
2. Industrial Promotion Scheme (IPS) receivables Audit Procedure performed:
Other current assets include government grant in the form of refund of Sales tax/GST under IPS Scheme of Rs. 7929 lakhs as at March 31 2020 (Rs. 6242 lakhs as at March 31 2019) from the states of Maharashtra Madhya Pradesh West Bengal and Rajasthan as the respective scheme notifications were issued by the aforesaid State Governments. In response to the risk of completeness of the accruals in the standalone financial statements:
We have examined the eligibility certificates and obtained a list of year wise break- up of the IPS receivables by the Company for all the financial years.
Post GST the state of west Bengal is yet to notify the IPS scheme and accordingly the Company has not recognized grant since July 2017 the amount whereof is presently not ascertainable. Management judgement is involved in assessing the accounting for grants and particularly in considering the probability of a grant being released and we have accordingly designated this as a focus area of the audit. We had discussed the status of the assessment of grants receivable for all the financial years and the Management view on the expected time frame by which the grants will be released.
Additionally we have considered the status of the previous assessments and the adjustments if any done by the respective concerned authorities.
The procedures performed gave us a sufficient evidence to conclude that the grants have been accounted in terms of the schemes announced by various state governments.

The Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company's financialreporting process.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalonefinancial statements are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or errorand to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a highlevel of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAswill always detect a material misstatement when it exists.

Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material ifindividually or in the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence theeconomic decisions of 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 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 control system in place and the operating effectiveness ofsuch 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 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 entity'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 ourauditor's report. However future events or conditions may cause the entity 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.

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 pf ouraudit work and in evaluating the results of our work and (ii) to evaluate the effect ofant 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 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.

Other Matter:

We did not audit the financial statements of 24 branches included in the standalonefinancial statements of the Company whose financial statements reflect the total assets ofRs.283044 lakhs as at March 31 2020 (R 283816 lakhs as at March 31 2019) and totalrevenue of Rs.544220 lakhs for the year ended on that date (R 551657 lakhs for the yearended March 31 2019). The financial statements of these branches have been audited by the9 branch auditors whose reports have been furnished to us and our opinion in so far as itrelates to the amounts and disclosures included in respect of these branches is basedsolely on the report of such branch auditors.
