Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanationsgiven to us the aforesaid standalone financial statements give the information requiredby the Companies Act 2013 ("Act") in the manner so required and give a true andfair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India of thestate of affairs of the Company as at 31st March 2022 and its profit and othercomprehensive income changes in equity and its cash flows for the year ended on thatdate.

Basis for Opinion

We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) specifiedunder Section 143(10) of the Act. Our responsibilities under those SAs are furtherdescribed in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone FinancialStatements section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with theCode of Ethics issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India together with theethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the standalone financial statementsunder the provisions of the Act and the Rules thereunder and we have fulfilled our otherethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements and the Code of Ethics. Webelieve that the audit evidence obtained by us is sufficient and appropriate to provide abasis for our opinion on the standalone financial statements.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance 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.

Description of Key Audit Matters

1. Impairment testing of goodwill [Refer Note 4.8.2 8 and 9 to the StandaloneFinancial Statements]

The Key Audit Matter How the matter was addressed in our audit
As disclosed in Note 4.8.2 to the standalone financial statements the Company tests goodwill for impairment annually or more frequently when there is an indication that the cash generating unit to which goodwill has been allocated may be impaired. Our audit procedures in respect of impairment testing of goodwill included the following:
We identified the annual impairment assessment of goodwill as a key audit matter because the assessment process is complex and judgmental by nature and is based on assumptions on: • Testing operating effectiveness of controls over determination of the recoverable amounts of cash generating units. Cash generating units for this purpose are those to which the goodwill is allocated;
– projected future cash inflows; • Evaluating the model used in determining the value in use of the cash generating units;
– expected growth rate and profitability; • Assessing the reasonableness of prior period cash flow forecasts of the Company by reference to actual performance to assess forecast accuracy;
– discount rate; – perpetuity value based on long term growth rate; • Challenging the significant assumptions and judgements used in impairment analysis such as forecast revenue margins long term growth and discount rates in comparison to economic and industry forecasts with the assistance of our valuations specialist;
– sensitivity analyses; • Performing sensitivity analysis of the key assumptions such as future revenue growth rates future gross margins and the discount rate used in determining the recoverable value;
• Evaluating the adequacy of disclosures including disclosures of key assumptions judgements and sensitivities.
2. Recognition and measurement of Minimum Alternate Tax (MAT) Credit Entitlement – Deferred tax assets (Refer Note 4.13 and 22 to the Standalone Financial Statements):
The Key Audit Matter How the matter was addressed in our audit
The Company pays minimum alternate tax (MAT) under section 115JB of the Income Tax Act 1961. The MAT paid would be available as an offset over a period of 15 years. As disclosed in Note 22 to the Standalone Financial Statements the MAT credit is recognized as a deferred tax asset. The utilization of this asset has commenced as the Company now pays taxes under the provision of Income Tax Act 1961. The Company is required to reassess recognition of MAT credit asset at each reporting date. In respect of MAT credit assets we assessed recognition and measurement by performing the following procedures:
The Company has recognized MAT credit assets based on the probability of income tax payable on future taxable profits against which such MAT credit assets can be offset before they expire. • Evaluating the design implementation and operating effectiveness of the relevant internal controls over recognition and measurement of MAT credit assets and underlying data;
The recognition is based on the projected profitability. This is determined based on approved business plans. • Obtaining the approved business plans projected profitability statements;
Recognition and measurement of such deferred tax assets has been identified as a key audit matter because the assessment process involves significant judgement regarding the forecasts of future income tax. The assessment process is based on assumptions affected by expected future market or economic conditions. • Challenging the assumptions used regarding future business plans and taxable profit in light of fiscal developments current economic environment and prior performance in determining the recoverability of MAT credit assets recognized within the period available under applicable Income tax laws;
• Performing sensitivity analysis
• Testing the computation of amounts recognized as deferred tax assets on MAT credit;
• Focusing on the disclosures on MAT credit assets and assumptions used.

Information Other than the Standalone Financial Statements and Auditor's Report Thereon

The Company's Management and Board of Directors are responsible for the otherinformation. The other information comprises the information included in the Company'sannual report but does not include the standalone financial statements and our auditor'sreport thereon.

Our opinion on the standalone financial statements does not cover the other informationand we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the standalone financial statements our responsibilityis to read the other information and in doing so consider whether the other informationis materially inconsistent with the standalone financial statements or our knowledgeobtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If based on thework we have performed we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this otherinformation we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in thisregard.

Management's and Board of Directors' Responsibilities for the Standalone FinancialStatements

The Company's Management and Board of Directors are responsible for the matters statedin Section 134(5) of the Act with respect to the preparation of these standalone financialstatements that give a true and fair view of the state of affairs profit and othercomprehensive income changes in equity and cash flows of the Company in accordance withthe accounting principles generally accepted in India including the Indian AccountingStandards (Ind AS) specified under Section 133 of the Act. This responsibility alsoincludes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions ofthe Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Company and for preventing and detectingfrauds and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate accountingpolicies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and designimplementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls that were operatingeffectively for ensuring accuracy and completeness of the accounting records relevant tothe preparation and presentation of the standalone financial statements that give a trueand fair view and are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the standalone financial statements the Management and Board of Directorsare responsible for assessing the Company's ability to continue as a going concerndisclosing as applicable matters related to going concern and using the going concernbasis of accounting unless the Board of Directors either intends to liquidate the Companyor to cease operations or has no realistic alternative but to do so.

The Board of Directors is 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 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 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 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 made by the Management and Board ofDirectors.

• Conclude on the appropriateness of the Management and Board of Directors use ofthe going concern basis of accounting in preparation of standalone financial statementsand based on the audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertainty exists relatedto events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company's ability tocontinue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists we arerequired to draw attention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures in thestandalone 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 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 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.
