Key audit matters

How our audit addressed the key audit matter

Recognition of Deferred Tax Assets (as described in Note 19 of the standalone Ind AS financial statements)

Our audit procedures included the following:

Deferred tax assets are recognized on unabsorbed depreciation when it is probable that taxable profit willbe available against which unabsorbed depreciation can be utilized. The Companys ability to recognize deferred tax assets on unabsorbed depreciation carried forward is assessed by the management at the end of each reporting period, taking into account forecasts of future taxable profits and the law and jurisdiction of the taxable items and the assumptions on which these projections are determined by management. We assessed the methodology applied by the Company with applicable accounting standards and taxation laws along with the future business forecast of taxable profits.
At March 31, 2023, the Company has recognized deferred tax assets amounting to Rs. 28.47 crore on the unabsorbed depreciation. Our audit approach consisted of assessing the business plans of the Companys assessment to utilize deferred tax assets. In particular, we assessed:
Significant management judgement is required to determine the forecasted profits, expected future market, economic conditions, and tax laws. - the underlying projections and assumptions used for management estimates as calculated during the budget process by analyzing projected and actual performances;
Given the degree of judgement, managements decision to recognize and classify deferred tax assets as recoverable, we consider this issue to be a key audit matter. - tested sensitivity of key assumptions used in projections which are based on profits earned and after considering expected future market economic conditions, tax laws and managements expansion plans.
- the schedules for the reversal of temporary differences
• We also understood the income tax computation process and review controls around recognition of Deferred tax assets and evaluated the design and tested the effectiveness of controls in this area relevant to our audit.
• Engaged tax specialists to assist us in assessing the management prepared schedule for computation of tax and deferred taxes.
• We have assessed the adequacy of disclosures included in the standalone Ind AS financial statements in this regard.

Impairment testing of investment in Subsidiaries and Associate (as described in note 49 of the standalone Ind AS financial statements)

Our audit procedures included the following:
Impairment indicators were identified on the investment and recoverable amount in subsidiaries, namely SIEL Industrial Estate Limited and SIEL Infrastructure & Estate Developers Private Limited and an associate namely Mawana Foods Private Limited.. • In conjunction with review by technical and valuation specialists, we assessed the Companys valuation methodology applied in determining the recoverable amount and we assessed the assumptions of the cash flow forecasts.
As a result, an impairment assessment was performed by comparing the carrying value of investment in subsidiaries and associate to its recoverable amount to determine whether an impairment was required to be recognized • We tested the Companys internal controls in relation to preparing and reviewing cash flow projections considering the future business plans.
In case of Subsidiaries, impairment testing was carried out by getting the assets valuation from approved valuer. • We discussed potential changes in assumptions with management in order to evaluate the inputs and assumptions used in the cash flow forecasts.
The recoverable amount was determined to be the higher of the fair value less cost of disposal, and the value in use, determined by discounting future cash flows. • We performed sensitivity analysis on the key assumptions adopted in the impairment assessment to understand the impact of changes in assumptions on the estimated recoverable amounts.
In case of Associate, the recoverable amount was determined to be the higher of the fair value, and the value in use, determined by discounting future cash flows. • We assessed the adequacy of disclosures made in the standalone Ind AS financial statements in this regard.
The determination of recoverable amount of the Companys investment in associate relies on managements estimates of future cash flows and their judgement with respect to the associates performance.
Due to the uncertainty of forecasting and discounting future cash flows, the level of managements judgement involved and the significance of the Companys investment in subsidiaries and associate of Rs. 83.78 crore as at March 31, 2023, this audit area is considered a key audit matter.

Determination of net realizable value of inventory of sugar at the year ended March 31, 2023 (as described in note 50 of the standalone Ind AS financial statements)

Our audit procedures included the following:
As on March 31, 2023, the Company is carrying inventory of sugar (finished goods and work in progress) amounting to Rs. 506.79 crore. The inventory of sugar is valued at lower of cost and net realisable value. • We have tested the controls established by the management in determination of net realizable value of inventory of sugar.
The relative size of the inventory of sugar as on March 31, 2023 is significant to the financial statements and significant judgement was involved in the consideration of factors such as minimum sale price, monthly quota, fluctuation in selling prices and related notifications of the government in determination of net realizable value. • We considered various factors including actual selling price prevailing around and subsequent to the year end, monthly quota and other notifications of the Government of India with respect to sugar industry as a whole while assessing the net realizable value.
Accordingly, determination of net realisable value was determined to be a key audit matter in our audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements. • We have assessed the disclosures included to the standalone Ind AS Financial Statements in this regard.

Information Other than the Financial Statements and Auditors Report Thereon

The Companys Board of Directors is responsible for the other information. The other information comprises the information included in the Annual Report, but does not include the standalone Ind AS financial statements and auditors report thereon.

Our opinion on the standalone Ind AS financial 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 standalone Ind AS financial statements, our responsibility is to read the other information and, in doing so, consider whether such other information is materially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If, based on the work we have performed, we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this other information, we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in this regard.

Responsibilities of Management for the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements

The Companys Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in Section 134(5) of the Act with respect to the preparation of these standalone Ind AS financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position, financial performance including other comprehensive income, cash flows and changes in equity of the Company in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, including the Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS) specified under Section 133 of the Act read with the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, 2015, as amended. 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 accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and the design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls, that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, relevant to the preparation and presentation of the standalone Ind AS financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the standalone Ind AS financial 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. Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Companys financial reporting process.

Auditors Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalone Ind AS financial 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 influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these standalone Ind AS financial 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 standalone Ind AS financial statements, whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide 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) (i) of the Act, we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the Company has adequate internal financial controls with reference to financial statements in place and the operating effectiveness 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 significant 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 financial 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 standalone Ind AS financial statements, including the disclosures, and whether the standalone Ind AS financial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation. We communicate with those charged with governance regarding, among other matters, the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings, any significant deficiencies in internal control that we 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 significance in the audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements for the financial year ended March 31, 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 benefits of such communication.
