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 financial statements under the provisions of the Act and the Rules there under, and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements and the Code of Ethics. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgement, 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 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 & Conclusion
1. Sale of Bagasse to a Related Party We understood and tested the design and operating effectiveness of controls as established by the management in determining the various parameters and the price determination. We have also tested the relevant records and found the price determination is in accordance with the agreement. The transaction amount is within the limits approved by the shareholders.
During the year, the Company has sold Bagasse to Seshasayee Paper and Boards Limited, a related party for an aggregate value of Rs 2644 lakhs, pursuant to a longterm agreement. Based on the above procedures, in our opinion the management?s determination of the price of Bagasse for the year is considered to be reasonable and also complied the required legal requirements.
The transactions has the prior approval of the Audit Committee of the Board and the shareholders through postal ballot as applicable.
2. As on 31st March 2023 the inventory of sugar with carrying value Rs 7381 lakhs is valued at lower of cost and net realizable value. We have verified and tested the design and operating effectiveness of controls with regard to the preparation of the cost sheet and the underlying judgments as well as the procedures and the basis for determination of the quantity and net realizable value.
We considered the value of Inventory of Sugar as key audit matter considering the relative size of it in the financial statements and significant judgments involved in the consideration of factors such as the cost determination, selling prices since obtained/ prevailing in determination of net realizable value Based on the above procedures performed, the management?s determination of the cost and net realizable valuation of inventory of Sugar at the end of the year, is considered reasonable.
3. As on 31st March 2023 the amount receivable from TANGEDCO, a Tamil Nadu State Government entity is Rs 4308 lakhs (Trade Receivable - Current and NonCurrent), to whom the surplus power generated by the Cogeneration Power Plant is sold pursuant to a Long Term Power Purchase agreement. We have verified the PPA and the records for the quantity of Power wheeled and the related invoices and the related internal controls established by the management.
During the year, Ppursuant to the provisions of the Electricity (Late Payment Surcharge and Related Matters) Rules, 2022 TANGEDCO has opted to avail the Liquidation Plan there under and pay the outstanding dues as of 3rd June 2022 in 48 EMIs with no further interest. We have also tested the judgement made by the management based on the past settlements made by the customer to assess the credit risk, the consequent impairment assessment and fair value measurement for receivables under the scheme.
Accordingly, the Company has recognised LPSC of Rs 354 lakhs at fair value in other income. Further the trade receivables including LPSC as on 31-03-2022 are discounted and carried at fair value, with fair value adjustment of Rs 684 lakhs recognised in the Statement of Profit & Loss. Based on these audit procedures, the management?s estimate of credit risk, impairment assessment and fair value measurement is reasonable.
Being a significant account balance and the period of outstanding being long, it is considered as a Key audit matter.

Information other than the Financial Statements and Auditor?s Report thereon

The Company?s 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 financial statements and our auditor?s report thereon.

Our opinion on the standalone 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 financial statements, our responsibility is to read the other

information and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the standalone financial statements or our knowledge obtained during the course of our audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If, based on the work we have performed, we conclude that if there is a material mis-statement of this other information, we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in this regard.

Management?s Responsibility for the Standalone Financial Statements

The Company?s 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), Changes in Equity and Cash Flows of the Company in accordance with Ind AS and other accounting principles generally accepted in India. 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 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 mis-statement, whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the Financial Statements, management is responsible for assessing the Company?s 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 is also responsible for overseeing the Company?s financial reporting process.

Auditors Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements as a whole are free from material mis-statement, 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 mis-statement when it exists. Mis-statements 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 Financial Statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with SAs, we exercise professional judgment and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit.

We also:

• Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the 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 a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material mis-statement 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 controls 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.

• Conclude on the appropriateness of management?s 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 Company?s 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 auditor?s 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 Financial Statements, including the disclosures, and whether the Financial Statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.

Materiality is the magnitude of mis-statements in the standalone financial statements that, individually or in aggregate, makes it probable that the economic decisions of a reasonably knowledgeable user of the Financial Statements may be influenced. 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 effect of any identified misstatements in the Financial Statements.

We communicate with those charged with governance regarding, among other matters, the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings including any significant deficiencies 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.
