The Key Audit matters
Accuracy of Revenues Recognition and estimation of Work-in-progress in respect ofonerous obligation on service contracts involves significant judgment:
The company is engaged in rendering Contractual technical services relating to Networkoptimisation Network planning drive test survey services etc. to OEM's and Telecomoperators. Such contractual services are complex to determine revenues and liability foronerous obligation. The recognition of Revenue and the estimation of the outcome ofservice contracts require significant management judgment in particular with respect toestimation the cost to complete and the amount of variation orders to be recognized.
At the year -end a significant amount of Work in progress (Contract assets andLiabilities) related to these contracts is recognized on the balance sheet.
We identified the Work-in-progress estimation under various contracts as a Key AuditMatter because of the significant judgment involved in estimating the Work-in-Progress ofsuch contracts.
This estimate has high inherent uncertainties and requires consideration of progress ofthe contract efforts incurred to date and estimates of efforts required to complete theremaining contract performance and obligations over the lives of the contract.
This required high degree of Auditor Judgment in evaluating the audit evidencesupporting the application of the input method used to recognize the revenue and higherextent of audit effort to evaluate the reasonableness of the total estimated amount ofrevenue recognized on such contracts.
Refer Notes 2.5 and 2.15 to the standalone Financial Statements.

Selected a sample of service contracts and through inspection of evidence ofperformance of these controls tested the operating effectiveness of the internal controlsrelating to efforts incurred and estimated.
Assessed the appropriateness of Work-in progress (Contract assets) on balancesheet by evaluating the underlying documentation to identify possible delays in achievingmilestones which may require change in estimated costs to complete the remainingperformance obligations

Auditor's Responsibilities forthe 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 whetherdue 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 orthe override of internalcontrol.

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 standalone financial statements inplace and the operating effectiveness of such controls.

If we conclude that a materialuncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to therelated disclosures in the standalone financial statements or if such disclosures areinadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidenceobtained up to the date of our auditors' report. However future events or conditions maycause the Company to cease to continue 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 othermatters the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findingsincluding any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify duringouraudit.
We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we havecomplied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicatewith them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear onour independence 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 auditors' 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.

(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.
Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
