Key Audit Matters

5. Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgment, were of most significance in our audit of the standalone financial statements of the current period. 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 separate opinion on these matters.

Key Audit Matter

How the matter was address in our audit

Revenue Recognition:

We applied the following audit procedures in this area, among others to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence:

Revenue of the Company mainly comprises of sale of goods to its customers. Revenue from sale of goods is recognized when control is transferred to the customer and there is no other unfulfilled obligation. This requires detailed analysis of each contract/ customer purchase order regarding timing of revenue recognition. Inappropriate assessment could lead to a risk of revenue being recognized on sale of goods before the control in the goods is transferred to the customer. Accordingly, timing of recognition of revenue is a key audit matter.

• Assessing the Companys accounting policies for revenue recognition by comparing with the applicable accounting standards;

• Testing the design, implementation and operating effectiveness of key internal controls over timing of recognition of revenue from sale of goods;

• Performed testing on selected samples of customer contracts/ customer purchase orders. Checked terms and conditions related to acceptance of goods, acknowledged delivery receipts, and tested the transit time to deliver the goods and its revenue recognition. Our tests of details focused on cut-off samples to verify only revenue pertaining to current year is recognized based on delivery documents along with terms and conditions set out in customer contracts/ customer purchase orders.

 

Key Audit Matter

How the matter was address in our audit

First time adoption of Ind AS framework:

We obtained adequate and appropriate audit evidences by performing additional procedure which included, but not limited to, the following:

As disclosed in Note 52 to the accompanying standalone financial statements, the Company has adopted Indian Accounting Standards notified under section 133 of the Act ("Ind AS"), with effect from 1st April 2022 (1st April 2021 being the transition date) and prepared the first set of Standalone Financial Statements under Ind AS framework in the current year.

• Obtained an understanding of managements processes and controls around adoption of Ind AS. We sought explanations from the management for areas involving complex judgments or interpretations to assess its appropriateness;

• Examined the implementation of exemptions availed and options chosen by the Company in accordance with the requirements of Ind AS 101, First Time Adoption of Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS 101);

This change in the financial reporting framework required an evaluation of the potential impact on the components of the financial statements. This process also required the management to apply significant judgments to identify and elect appropriate accounting policies suitable for various transactions and balances relating to the operations of the Company including electing of available options for transition of balances as at transition date to the Ind AS framework. Considering the significance of the transition, the complexities and the efforts involved, this matter has been determined as a key audit matter for the year under audit.

• Examined the accounting policies adopted by the Company on transition to Ind AS and assessed its appropriateness on basis of our understanding of the entity and its operations and the requirements of relevant accounting standards under the Ind AS framework;

• Examined whether the presentation and disclosures in the financial statements are in accordance with the requirements of the applicable standards and regulatory requirements;

• Examined the appropriateness and adequacy of disclosures with respect to the reconciliations prepared and presented by the management in the financial statements in accordance with Ind AS 101.

The other information comprises the information included in the Boards Report including Annexure to Boards Report (but does not include the standalone financial statements and our auditors report thereon) and the rest of the Annual Report (the "Other Information"). The Other Information is expected to be made available to us after the date of this auditors report. 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 identified above when it becomes available 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. When we read the other information, if we conclude that there is a material misstatement therein, we are required to communicate the matter to those charged with governance.

Responsibilities of Management and those charged with governance for the Standalone Financial Statements

7. 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 and other comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash flows 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. 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 design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls, that were operating effectively for ensuring accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, relevant to the preparation and presentation of the standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

8. In preparing the standalone financial statements, the Board of Directors 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 the Board of Directors either intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations, or has no realistic alternative but to do so.

9. The Board of Directors is also responsible for overseeing the Companys financial reporting process.

Auditors Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements

10. Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalone 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 financial statements. 11. 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 sufficient 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 financial 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 with reference to standalone 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 Board of Directors; Conclude on the appropriateness of Board of Directors 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. 12. Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the standalone financial statements that, individually or in aggregate, makes it probable that the economic decisions of a reasonably knowledgeable user of the standalone 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 standalone financial statements. 13. 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. 14. 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. 15. 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.

Other Matter

16. The comparative financial information of the Company for the year ended 31st March 2022 and the transition date opening balance sheet as at 1st April 2021, prepared in accordance with Ind AS and included in these standalone financial statements, are based on the previously issued standalone financial statements for the year ended 31st March 2022 and 31st March 2021, respectively, prepared in accordance with Accounting Standards prescribed under Section 133 of the Act, read with rule 7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014 (as amended), on which we issued an unmodified opinion vide our reports dated 27th May 2022 and 28th June 2021 respectively on those standalone financial statements, and have been adjusted for the differences in the accounting principles adopted by the Company on transition to Ind AS, which have also been audited by us.

7. A companys internal financial controls over financial reporting with reference to the standalone financial statements is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of the standalone financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A companys internal financial controls over financial reporting with reference to the standalone financial statements 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 standalone financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and payments 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 effect on the standalone financial statements.

Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financial reporting with reference to the standalone financial statements, 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 with reference to the standalone financial statements to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial controls over financial reporting with reference to the standalone financial statements may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
