Webelieve that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to providea basis for our opinion.
Key Audit Matters
Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgement were of mostsignificance in our audit of financial statements of the current period. These matterswere addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a whole and informing our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters. Wehave determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to be communicatedin our report.

The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for preparation of the otherinformation. The other information comprises the information included in Annual Reportbut does not include the financial statements and our auditor's report thereon.
Our opinion on financial statement does not cover the other information and we do notexpress any form of assurance conclusion thereon.
In connection with our audit of the financial statements our responsibility is to readthe other information and in doing so consider whether the other information ismaterially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained during thecourse of our audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If based on thework we have performed we conclude that there is material misstatement of this otherinformation we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in thisregard.
Management's responsibility for the Financial Statements
The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in section134(5) of the Act with respect to the preparation of these financial statements that givea true and fair view of the financial position financial performance total comprehensiveincome changes in equity and cash flows of the company in accordance with applicable IndAS and other accounting principles generally accepted in India.

The Board of Directors are responsible for overseeing the company's financial reportingprocess.
Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of financial statements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financialstatements as a whole 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 fromfraud or error and are considered material if individually or in aggregate they couldreasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis ofthese financial statements.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgement 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 procedure 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 financial controls relevant to the audit inorder to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether thecompany has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operatingeffectiveness 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 financial statement or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Ourconclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor'sreport. However future events or conditions may cause the company to cease to continue asa going concern.
Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent theunderlying transaction and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.
Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the financial statements thatindividually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may be influenced. We considerquantitative materiality and qualitative factor in (i) planning the scope of our auditwork and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effect of anyidentified misstatements in the financial statements. We communicate with those chargedwith governance regarding among other matters the planned scope and timing of the auditand significant audit findings including any significant deficiencies in internal controlthat 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 financial statements of thecurrent period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in ourauditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosures about the matter orwhen 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.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
A company's internal financial control over financial reporting is a process designedto provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and thepreparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generallyaccepted accounting principles. A company's internal financial control over financialreporting includes those policies and procedures that
(1) pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately andfairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company;
(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.
Limitations of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting Because of theinherent limitations of internal financial controls over financial reporting includingthe possibility of collusion or improper management override of controls materialmisstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected. Also projections ofany evaluation of the internal financial controls over financial reporting to futureperiods are subject to the risk that the internal financial control over financialreporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or that the degree ofcompliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In our opinion the Company has in all material respects an adequate internalfinancial controls system over financial reporting and such internal financial controlsover financial reporting were operating effectively as at March 312020 based on theinternal control over financial reporting criteria established by the Company consideringthe essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note.
