Key Audit Matters
Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgment, were of most significance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the Financial 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 to be communicated in our report.
|Key Audit Matters||Response to Key Audit Matters|
|Property, Plant and Equipment|| We assessed the controls in place over the fixed assets, evaluated capitalisation process, performed tests of details on costs capitalised, the timeliness of the capitalisation of the assets and the de-recognition criteria for asset retired from active use.|
|There are areas where management judgement impacts the carrying value of property, plant and equipment, intangible assets and their respective depreciation rates. These include the decision to|
|capitalise or expense costs; the annual asset life review; the timeliness of the capitalisation of assets and the measurement and recognition criteria for assets retired from active use. We do not consider this management judgement to be of high risk of significant misstatement or to be subject to significant level of judgment. However due to their materiality in the context of the Balance Sheet of the Company, this is considered to be an area which had the significant effect on the overall audit strategy and allocation of resources in planning and completing our audit.|| In performing these procedures, we reviewed the judgements made by management including the nature of underlying costs capitalised; determination of realizable value of the assets retired from active use; the appropriateness of assets lives applied in the calculation of depreciation; the useful lives of assets prescribed in Schedule II to the Act and the useful lives of certain assets as per the technical assessment. We observed that the management has regularly reviewed the aforesaid judgments and there are no material changes.|
|Capital Work-in-Progress|| Our audit process included a review of the progress of the project and the intention and ability of the management to carry forward and bring the asset to its state of intended use.|

|Provisions and Contingent Liabilities||Our audit procedure in response to this Key Audit Matter included, among others,|
|The Company is involved in various taxes and other disputes for which final outcomes cannot be easily predicted and which could potentially result in significant liabilities. The assessment of the risks associated with the litigations is based on complex assumptions, which require the use of judgement and such judgement relates , primarily , to the assessment of the uncertainties connected to the prediction of the outcome of the proceedings and to the adequacy of the disclosures in the standalone financial statements. Because of the judgements required, the materiality of such litigations and the complexity of the assessment process, the area was a key matter for our audit.|| Assessment of the process and relevant controls implemented to identify legal and tax litigations, and pending administrative proceedings.|
| Assessment of assumptions used in the evaluation of potential legal and tax risks performed by the legal and tax department of the Company considering the legal precedence and other rulings in similar cases.|
| Inquiry with the legal and tax departments regarding the status of the most significant disputes and inspection of the key relevant documentation.|

Annexure - B to the Independent Auditors Report
(Referred to in paragraph-2(f) on Other Legal and Regulatory Requirements of our Report of even date to the members of Kilburn Chemicals Limited on the Financial Statements for the year ended
31st March, 2019)
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 financial controls over financial reporting of Kilburn Chemicals Limited ("the Company") as of 31stMarch, 2019 in conjunction with our audit of the Financial Statements of the Company for the year ended on that date.
Managements Responsibility for Internal
The Companys managementis responsible for establishing and maintaining internal financial controls based on the internal control over financial reporting criteria established by the
Company considering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance on Audit of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI). These responsibilities include the design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring the orderly and efficient conduct of its including adherence to companys policies, the safeguarding of its assets, the prevention and detection of frauds and errors, the accuracy completeness of the accounting records, and the timely preparation of reliable financial information, as required under the Act.
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on Companys internal financial controls over financial reporting based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Guidance 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 Act, to the extent applicable to an audit of internal financial controls, both applicable to an audit of Internal Financial Controls and, 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 financial controls over financial reporting were established and maintained and if such controls operated effectively in all material respects. Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacy of the internal financial controls system over financial reporting and their operating effectiveness. Our audit of internal financial controls over financial reporting included obtaining an understanding of internal financial controls over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, and testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness 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 Financial Statements, whether due to fraud or error.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained sufficient and appropriate to provide is a basis for our audit opinion on the Companys internal financial controls system over financial reporting.
Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
A companys internal financial control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation offinancial statements for external purposes in accordance with Indian Accounting Standard prescribed under section 133 of the Act. A companys internal financial control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, including the Ind AS, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the companys assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting
Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financial 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 financial controls over financial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial control over financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In our opinion, the Company has, in all material respects, an adequate internal financial controls system over financial reporting and such internal financial controls over financial reporting were operating effectively as at 31st March, 2019, based on the internal control over financial 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.
