Changes in Equity and the Statement of Cash Flows for the year then ended, and notes to the standalone financial statements, including a summary of the significant information ("the standalone financial

2. Basis for Qualified opinion a) The Company has recognized net deferred tax assets of 6,894.29lakhsconsideringsufficient taxable income would be available in future years against which deferred tax assets can be utilized. In our opinion, due to losses during the year and earlier years and pendency of CIRP, it is uncertain that the Company would achieve sufficient taxable income in the future against which deferred tax assets can be utilized. Accordingly, weareunabletoobtainsufficient appropriate audit evidence to corroborate the Managements / IRPs assessment of recognition of deferred tax assets as at 31 March 2023. Had the deferred tax asset not been recognized, the net loss for the year ended 31 March 2023 would have been higher by 6,894.29 lakhs and Net worth of the

Company as at 31 March 2023 would have been lower by 6,894.29 lakhs. Our opinion on the statement for the year ended 31 March 2022 was also modified in respect of this matter. b) The Company has outstanding loans, trade receivables and other receivables of 4,933.07 Lakhs as at 31 March 2023, which are overdue / rescheduled. The management / IRP envisages the same to be good and recoverable. However, owing to the aforementioned overdues / statements reschedulement, we are unable to comment upon adjustments, if any, that may be required to the carrying value of the aforesaid outstanding receivables and the consequential impact on the accompanying standalone financial statements.

Our Opinion on the Statement for the year ended

31 March 2022 was also modified in respect of this matter. c) or We draw attention to Note 1 of the standalone financial statements

Company into Corporate Insolvency Resolution

Process ("CIRP") and pending determination of obligations and liabilities with regard to various claims submitted by the operational / financial / other creditors and employees including claims for guarantee obligation and interest payable on loans, we are unable to comment on adjustments, if any, pending reconciliation and determination of final obligation. d) The Company has not provided for interest on borrowings of 100.17 lakhs on outstanding borrowings calculated based on the basic rate of interest as per the terms of the loan post initiation of Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process

(CIRP)with effect from 16 December 2022 under

Section 14 of Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 (‘IBC). The Company has also not provided for interest on borrowings pre initiation of CIRP of 751.26 lakhs based on the claims admitted. Had the interest expense excluding penal interest, if any, been recognised, the net loss for the year ended 31 March 2023 would have been higher by 851.44 lakhs excluding penal interest, if any, and the Net worth of the Company would have been lower by 851.44 lakhs as at 31 March 2023.

Non provision of interest is not in compliance with Ind AS 23 "Borrowing Costs". Our Opinion on the Statement for the year ended 31 March 2022 was also modified e) We have not received bank statement and confirmation current accounts of 6.99 lakhs. In the absence of sufficient appropriate audit evidence, we are unable to determine any possible impact thereof on the loss for the year ended 31 March 2023 and on the carrying value of cash and cash equivalents. f) In the absence of comprehensive review of carrying amount of certain assets (loans and advances, balances with government authorities, deposits, trade and other receivables) and liabilities, we are unable to comment upon adjustments, if any, that may be required to the carrying amount of such assets and liabilities and consequential impact, if any, on the reported losses for the year ended 31 March 2023.

3. Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgment, were of most significance our audit of the standalone financial statements of the year ended 31 March, 2023. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the standalone financial statements as a whole, and in forming our opinion thereon, and we do not provide a separateassetsand opinion on these matters. In addition to the matter described in the Basis for Qualified Opinion section, we have determined the matters described below to be the Key audit matters to be communicated in our report.

Key Audit Matter

How the Key Audit Matter was addressed in our audit

1. Revenue Recognition (Note 27 to the accompanying standalone financial statements

Our audit procedures, included amongst others, the following:

Revenue is one of the key profit driver and is therefore susceptible to misstatement. Cut off is the key assertion in so far as revenue recognition is concerned.

i. Assessed the Companys revenue recognition policy prepared as per Ind AS 115 Revenue from contracts with customers.

The revenue is also deferred for part of services which have not been rendered.

ii. Involving verification of controls surrounding revenue invoicing.

Revenue towards satisfaction of a performance obligation is measured at the amount of transaction price (net of variable consideration) allocated to that performance obligation. The transaction price of goods sold and services rendered is net of variable consideration on account of various discounts and schemes offeredby the Company as part of the contract.

iii. Testing the end-to-end reconciliation from business support systems to billing and to the general ledger. Performed substantive analytical procedures over the significant revenue streams.

iv. Assessed transactions taking place before and after year end to ensure that revenue was recognized in the appropriate period.

v. Tested the calculations related to discounts and other supporting documents on test check basis.

Considering the significant in revenue recognition and estimating accruals relating to discounts recognised in relation to services provided during the year, it was determined to be a key audit matter in our audit of the standalone financial statements.

vi. Performing procedures to test the accuracy and completeness of adjustments, and to ensure that the revenue recognition criteria adopted by the Company is in line with the Companys accounting policies.

4. Material Uncertainty relating to Going Concern

The National Company Law Tribunal has admitted a petition under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016. The Company continues to incur losses and has defaulted in its debts / other obligations. Further, the

Company has received various claims submitted by the operational / financial / other creditors and employees including claims for guarantee obligation and interest payable on loans. These events raise significant doubt on the ability of Company to continue as a "Going

Concern". Since Corporate Insolvency Resolution

Process (CIRP) is currently in progress, as per the Code, it is required that the Company be managed as going concern during CIRP as referred in Note 53 to the financialstatements. Accordingly, the standalone financialstatements are continued to be prepared on going concern basis. The appropriateness of the preparation of standalone financialstatements on going concern basis is critically dependent upon CIRP as specified in the Code and the ultimate outcome of which is at present, not ascertainable. Our Opinion is not modified in respect to this matter

5. Information Other than the Standalone Financial

The Companys Board of Directors is responsible for the other information. The other information comprises the information included in the

Management Report, Directors report etc, but does not include the standalone financial statements and our auditors report thereon. The above reports are expected to be made available to us after the date of this auditors report.

The management of affairs of the Company and powers of Board of Directors of the Company stands vested with Interim Resolution Professional ("IRP") appointed by Honble NCLT.

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 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) prescribed under Section 133 of the Act.

The Directors / IRP are also responsible for overseeing the Companys financial reporting process.

7. Auditors responsibilities for the audit of the Standalone Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalone financial statements 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, audit they could reasonably be expected to influence the deficiencies economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these standalone 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 financial statements, whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is 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)(i) of the Act, we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the Company has adequate internal financial controls system 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/ IRP.

Conclude on the appropriateness of managements/ IRPs 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 standalone 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 financial statements, including the disclosures, and whether the standalone 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 includinganysignificantin 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 significance in the audit of the standalone financial statements of the current period 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.
