Basis for Opinion

We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) speci ed under section 143 (10) of the Companies Act, 2013. Our responsibilities under those Standards are further described in the Auditors Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with the Code of Ethics issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India together with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the nancial statements under the provisions of the Companies Act, 2013 and the Rules thereunder, and we have ful lled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements and the Code of Ethics. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is su cient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion on the nancial statements.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgement, were of most signi cance in our audit of the nancial statements of the current period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the nancial statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon, and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters.

We have determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters in our audit of the Company for the year ended 31st March, 2023.

Key Audit Matter

Auditors Response

1. Evaluation of uncertain tax positions

Principal Audit Procedures

The Company has material uncertain tax positions including matters under dispute which involves

Obtained details of completed tax assessments and demands for the year ended 31st March, 2023 from management. We involved our internal experts to challenge the managements underlying assumptions in estimating the tax provision and the possible outcome of the disputes.

signi cant judgment to determine the possible outcome of these disputes.

Refer Note 32 to the Financial Statements

Our internal experts also considered legal precedence and other rulings in evaluating managements position on these uncertain tax positions. Additionally, we considered the e ect of new information in respect of uncertain tax positions as at April 1, 2022 to evaluate whether any change was required to managements position on these uncertainties.

 

Net Realizable Value of Finished Goods

Principal Audit Procedures

Finished goods inventory are valued at lower of cost and net realizable value (estimated selling price less estimated cost to sell). Considering that there is always volatility in the selling price of sugar which is dependent upon various market conditions, determination of the net realizable value involves signi cant management judgement and therefore has been considered as a key audit matter.

Obtained an understanding of the determination of the net realizable values of the commodities and assessed and tested the reasonableness of the signi cant judgments applied by the management.

Evaluated the design of internal controls relating to the valuation of nished goods (including commodities) and also tested the operating e ectiveness of the aforesaid controls.

The total value of nished goods of sugar as at 31st March, 2023 is 4183.56 lakhs.

Compared the actual realization after the year end / latest realization to assess the reasonableness of the net realisable value that was estimated and considered by the management.
Compared the actual costs incurred to sell after the year end / based on the latest sale transaction to assess the reasonableness of the cost to sell that was estimated and considered by the management.
Compared the cost of the nished goods with the estimated net realisable value and checked if the nished goods were recorded at net realisable value where the cost was higher than the net realisable value.
Assessed the appropriateness of the disclosure in the nancial statements in accordance with the applicable nancial reporting framework.

Information Other than Financial Statements (Other Information)

The Companys Board of Directors is responsible for the other information. The other information comprises the information included in the Directors Report but does not include the nancial statements and our auditors report thereon. The Directors Report is expected to be made available to us after the date of this auditors report.

Our opinion on the nancial statements does not cover the other information and we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon. In connection with our audit of the nancial statements, our responsibility is to read the other information identi ed above when it becomes available and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the nancial statements or our knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. When we read the Directors report if we conclude that there is a material misstatement therein, we are required to communicate the matter to those charged with Governance.

Managements Responsibility for the Financial Statements

The Companys Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in section 134

(5) of the Companies Act, 2013 ("the Act") with respect to the preparation of these nancial statements that give a true and fair view of the nancial position, nancial performance, total comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash ows of the Company in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, including the Indian Accounting Standards speci ed under section 133 of the Act. This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Company and for preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate implementation and maintenance of accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal nancial controls, that were operating e ectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, relevant to the preparation and presentation of the nancial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. In preparing the nancial statements, management is responsible for assessing the Companys ability to continue as a ‘going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless management either intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations, or has no realistic alternative but to do so. The Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Companys nancial reporting process.

Auditors Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the nancial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditors report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to in uence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these nancial statements. As part of an audit in accordance with SAs, we exercise professional judgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the nancial statements, whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is su cient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error, as fraud may involve collusion, forgery, intentional omissions, misrepresentations, or the override of internal control.

Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3) of the Companies Act, 2013, we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the company has adequate internal nancial controls system in place and the operating e ectiveness of such controls.

Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.

Conclude on the appropriateness of managements use of the going concern basis of accounting and, based on the audit evidence obtained, whether a material uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast signi cant doubt on the Companys ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists, we are required to draw attention in our auditors report to the related disclosures in the nancial statements or, if such disclosures are inadequate, to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditors report. However, future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern.

Evaluate the overall presentation, structure and content of the nancial statements, including the disclosures, and whether the nancial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation. Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the nancial statements that, individually or in aggregate, makes it probable that the economic decisions of a reasonably knowledgeable user of the nancial statements may be in uenced. We consider quantitative materiality and qualitative factors in (i) planning the scope of our audit work and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the e ect of any identi ed misstatements in the nancial statements.

We communicate with those charged with governance regarding, among other matters, the planned scope and timing of the audit and signi cant audit ndings, including any signi cant de ciencies 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 regarding independence, and to communicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on our independence, and where applicable, related safeguards. From the matters communicated with those charged with governance, we determine those matters that were of most signi cance in the audit of the nancial statements of the year ended 31st March, 2023 and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in our auditors report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter or when, in extremely rare circumstances, we determine that a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest bene ts of such communication.

Annexure A to the Independent Auditors Report

(Referred to in paragraph 1(f) under ‘Report on Other Legal Regulatory Requirements section of our report to the Members of the Company of even date)

Report on the Internal Financial Controls under Clause (i) of Sub-section 3 of Section 143 of the Companies Act, 2013 ("the Act")

We have audited the internal nancial controls over nancial reporting of Kakatiya Cement Sugar & Industries Limited ("the Company") as of 31st March 2023 in conjunction with our audit of the nancial statements of the Company for the year ended on that date.

Managements Responsibility for Internal Financial Controls

The Companys management is responsible for establishing and maintaining internal nancial controls based on the internal control over nancial reporting criteria established by the Company considering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (‘ICAI). These responsibilities include the design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal nancial controls that were operating e ectively for ensuring the orderly and e cient conduct of its business, including adherence to companys policies, the safeguarding of its assets, the prevention and detection of frauds and errors, the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, and the timely preparation of reliable nancial information, as required under the Companies Act, 2013.

Auditors Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Companys internal nancial controls over nancial reporting based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting (the "Guidance Note") and the Standards on Auditing, issued by ICAI and deemed to be prescribed under section 143

(10) of the Companies Act, 2013, to the extent and, both issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Those Standards and the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether adequate internal nancial controls over nancial reporting was established and maintained and if such controls operated e ectively in all material respects. Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacy of the internal nancial controls system over nancial reporting and their operating e ectiveness. Our audit of internal nancial controls over nancial reporting included obtaining an understanding of internal nancial controls over nancial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, and testing and evaluating the design and operating e ectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. The procedures selected depend on the auditors judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the Ind AS nancial statements, whether due to fraud or error. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is su cient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the Companys internal nancial controls system over nancial reporting.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting

A companys internal nancial control over nancial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of nancial reporting and the preparation of Ind AS nancial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A companys internal nancial control over nancial reporting includes those policies and procedures that

(1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly re ect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company;

(2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of Ind AS nancial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditure of the company are being made only in accordance with authorisations of management and directors of the company; and

(3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorised acquisition, use, or disposition of the companys assets that could have a material e ect on the Ind AS nancial statements.

Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting

Because of the inherent limitations of internal nancial controls over nancial reporting, including the possibility of collusion or improper management override of controls, material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected. Also, projections of any evaluation of the internal nancial controls over nancial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal nancial control over nancial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Opinion

In our opinion, the Company has, in all material respects, an adequate internal nancial controls system over nancial reporting and such internal nancial controls over nancial reporting were operating e ectively as at 31st March, 2023, based on the internal control over nancial reporting criteria established by the Company considering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India.
