We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriateto provide a basis for our opinion.
Key Audit Matters
Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgmentwere of most significance in our audit of the financial statements of the currentperiod. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financialstatements as a whole and
in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separateopinion on these matters.
We have determined that there are no key audit matters to be
communicated in our report.

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters statedin section 134(5) of the Companies Act 2013 ("the Act") with respect to thepreparation of these financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financialposition financial performance (changes in equity) and cash flows of the Company inaccordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India includingthe accounting Standards specified under section 133 of the Act.

responsible for assessing the Company's ability to continue as agoing concern disclosing as applicable matters related to going concern and using thegoing concern basis of accounting unless the Board of Directors either intends toliquidate the Company or to cease operations or has no realistic alternative but to doso.
Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company'sfinancial reporting process.
Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the FinancialStatements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether thefinancial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement
whether due to fraud or error and to issue an auditor's reportthat includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance but is not aguarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAs will always detect a materialmisstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and areconsidered material if individually or in the aggregate they could reasonably beexpected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of thesefinancial statements.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professionaljudgment and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also:
Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of thefinancial statements whether due to fraud or error design and
perform audit procedures responsive to those risks and obtain
audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide
a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a materialmisstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraudmay involve collusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the overrideof internal control.
Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the
audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in thecircumstances. Under section 143(3)(i) of the Companies Act 2013 we are also responsiblefor expressing our opinion on whether the company has adequate internal financial
controls system in place and the operating effectiveness of suchcontrols.
Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used
and the reasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosuresmade by management.
Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the
going concern basis of accounting and based on the audit evidenceobtained whether a material uncertainty exists related to events or conditions thatmay cast significant doubt on the Company's ability to continue as a goingconcern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists we are required to drawattention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures in the financialstatements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusionsare based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor's report.However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a goingconcern.
Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of thefinancial statements including the disclosures and whether the financial statementsrepresent the underlying transactions
and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.
We communicate with those charged with governance regarding
among other matters the planned scope and timing of the audit and significantaudit findings including any significant deficiencies in
internal control that we identify during our audit.
We also provide those charged with governance with a statement
that we have complied with relevant ethical requirements regardingindependence and to communicate with them all relationships and other matters that mayreasonably be thought to bear on our independence and where applicable relatedsafeguards.
From the matters communicated with those charged with governance wedetermine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the financialstatements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describethese matters in our auditor's
report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about
the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine thata matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences ofdoing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.
