Auditor's Report

To the Members of Alok Industries LimitedReport on the Audit of the Standalone Financial StatementsOpinion

We have audited the accompanying standalone financial statements of Alok Industries Limited (“the Company”), which comprise the Balance sheet as at March 31 2022, the Statement of Profit and Loss including the statement of Other Comprehensive Income, the Cash Flow Statement and the Statement of Changes in Equity for the year then ended, and notes to the standalone financial statements, including a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the aforesaid standalone financial statements give the information required by the Companies Act, 2013, as amended (“the Act”) in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, of the state of affairs of the Company as at March 31, 2022, its loss including other comprehensive income, its cash flows and the changes in equity for the year ended on that date.

Basis for Opinion

We conducted our audit ofthe standalone financial statements in accordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs), as specified under section 143(10) of the Act. Our responsibilities under those Standards are further described in the ‘Auditor''s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements'' section of our report. We are 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 thereunder, 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 audit opinion on the standalone financial statements.

Emphasis of Matter

We draw attention to Note 34 of the standalone financial statements in respect of the resolution plan approved by the National Company Law Tribunal vide its order dated March 8, 2019 under section 31(1) of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016. The Company has accounted the assigned debt as per the aforesaid resolution plan at cost, overriding the Indian Accounting Standards which would require the Company to recognize the assigned debt at its fair value and accordingly the imputed interest cost over the period of the loan. Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.

Key Audit Matters

Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgment, were of most significance in our audit of the standalone financial statements for the financial year ended March 31, 2022. 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. For each matter below, our description of how our audit addressed the matter is provided in that context.

We have determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to be communicated in our report. We have fulfilled the responsibilities described in the Auditor''s responsibilities for the audit of the standalone financial statements section of our report, including in relation to these matters. Accordingly, our audit included the performance of procedures designed to respond to our assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the standalone financial statements. The results of our audit procedures, including the procedures performed to address the matters below, provide the basis for our audit opinion on the accompanying standalone financial statements.

Key audit matters

How our audit addressed the key audit matter

Recoverability of loan given to wholly owned subsidiary

The Company had in earlier years given loan to Alok Infrastructure Limited (a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company or “AIL”). As at March 31, 2022, the outstanding balance of loan is '' 1,372.99 crores (gross of impairment allowance of '' 1,190.87 crores). AIL does not have significant business operations and has made a loss of '' 12.50 crores for the year ended March 31, 2022 and has accumulated losses of '' 1,492.39 crores as on March 31, 2022.

To assess the recoverability of the outstanding loan, the Company has considered the valuation of the AIL''s investment properties / inventories performed by the subsidiary with the help of external valuation specialists and has accordingly assessed that there is no further provision required for the year ended March 31, 2022.

Our audit procedures included and were not limited to the following: • Obtained and read the audited financial statements of Alok

Infrastructure Limited for the year ended March 31, 2022.

• Performed inquiry procedures with auditor of Alok Infrastructure Limited and discussed the audit procedures performed by them on the valuation report issued by the external specialists in respect of the subsidiary''s investment properties/ inventories.

• Assessed key valuation aspects of the investment properties / inventories of Alok Infrastructure Limited by engaging internal valuation specialists.

Considering the assumptions / judgment used in valuation under the sales comparison method of market approach / depreciation replacement cost method under cost approach, the same has been considered as a key audit matter. Refer Note 6 of the standalone financial statements.

• Assessed the disclosures made in the standalone financial statements.

Capitalization of property, plant and equipment

In the earlier years, prior to implementation of the NCLT approved resolution plan, the Company was operating at a lower capacity utilization and overall maintenance activity at the plant was curtailed due to lack of working capital. Consequently, many of the plant and machinery remained idle / non-functional and in most cases the machinery''s operating speed was reduced, resulting in lower efficiency and production.

Our audit procedures included and were not limited to the following:

• Assessed the design and operating effectiveness of controls of the Company relating to capitalization of property, plant and equipment (including capital work in progress).

• Assessed on test basis for samples selected, that the recognition criteria under Ind AS 16 is met.

In the previous year, the re-constituted Board of Directors had approved a business plan which also included capital expenditure to overhaul the plant and machinery at the Company''s manufacturing locations.

During the year ended March 31, 2022, the Company has incurred expenditure of '' 114.99 crores, largely related to purchase of spares to overhaul the existing plant and machinery in order to improve their efficiency and increase the capacity utilization. Further, the Company has capitalised '' 8.81 crores out of the capital work in progress of the previous year.

• Inquired with management on any significant variation (if any) between the approved capex budget in previous year with the actual expenditure incurred as at the balance sheet date.

• Assessed disclosures made in the standalone financial statements.

Judgement is involved to ensure that the aforesaid expenditure meets the specific recognition criteria under Ind AS 16, ‘Property, Plant and Equipment''.

Accordingly, the same is considered as a key audit matter. Refer Note 2, 4 and 32 of the standalone financial statements.

Recoverability of carrying value of property, plant and equipment

In the previous year, consequent to the business plan approved by the re-constituted Board of Directors of the Company, the Company had through an external valuation specialist determined the value in use of property, plant and equipment and recorded an impairment provision of '' 8,264.22 crores in the books.

Based on recent business developments, the Board has made required revisions to the business plan and has accordingly updated the value in use calculations using the discounted cash flow method with the help of an external valuation specialist. Based on the same, the Company has determined there are no material adjustments required to the impairment allowance already recorded. The value in use is sensitive to changes in certain inputs / assumptions used for forecasting the discounted cash flow projections due to inherent uncertainty involved in these assumptions. Accordingly, the same has been considered as a key audit matter.

Our audit procedures included and were not limited to the following:

• Obtained the revised cash flow projections as approved by the Board of Directors.

• Assessed the valuation methodology applied in determining the value in use. In making this assessment, we evaluated the objectivity and independence of Company''s external specialists involved in the process.

• Assessed key assumptions applied to arrive at the value in use by involving internal valuation specialists

Other Information

The Company''s Board of Directors is responsible for the other information. The other information comprises the information included in the Board of Directors report, management discussion and analysis section of the annual report, corporate governance report and business responsibility 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 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 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, 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 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 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.

Those Board of Directors are also responsible for overseeing the Company''s financial reporting process.

Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements

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 auditor''s 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.

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 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 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 auditor''s 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 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 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 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.

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 for the financial year ended March 31, 2022 and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in our auditor''s 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.
