We have audited the accompanying Standalone financial statements of POWER MECH PROJECTS LIMITED (the Company), which comprise the Balance Sheet as at 31st March, 2021, the Statement of Profit and Loss (including Other Comprehensive Income), the Statement of Changes in Equity and the Statement of Cash Flows for the year ended on that date, and a summary of the significant accounting policies and other explanatory information (hereinafter referred to as the financial statements).
In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the accompanying Standalone financial statements give the information required by the Companies Act, 2013 (the Act) in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the Indian Accounting Standards prescribed under section 133 of the Act read with the Companies (Indian
Accounting Standards) Rules, 2015, as amended, (Ind AS) and other accounting principles generally accepted in India, of the State of affairs of the Company as at 31st March, 2021, the loss and total comprehensive loss, changes in equity and its cash flows for the year ended on that date.
We conducted our audit of the Standalone financial statements in accordance with the Standards on Auditing (SAs) 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 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 (ICAI) together with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the Standalone financial statements under the provisions of the Act and the Rules made thereunder, and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these requirements and the ICAI''s 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.
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. We have determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to be communicated in our report.
Key Audit matter
How the matter was addressed in our audit
Revenue recognition of long term contracts
The Company has revenue from construction contracts and long term operating and maintenance agreements.
Revenue related to these construction contracts is recognised using the percentage completion method, where progress is determined with reference to completion of physical proportion of the work to the extent of work certified by the customer and revenue is also recognised in case of works pending certification as on date of balance sheet. The Company raised invoices on monthly basis based on the physical proportion of the work completed.
We focussed this area because of significant management judgement required in:
Estimation of the physical proportion of the contract work completed for the contracts and particularly in case of those works which were pending for certification by the customer as on date of balance sheet which may lead to over or understatement of revenues and profit.
As part of our audit, we obtained an understanding of the methodology applied, the internal process and controls used for determination of the physical proportion of work completed. We evaluated the process and systems used to record the quantum of work completed against which invoices were raised.
In respect of construction projects, we obtained work completion certificates, measurement work sheets from project engineers and also obtained certificate of confirmations of work completed from customers to assess the appropriateness of management estimates of the physical proportion of work completed. Further we also examined the payment advices received subsequent to the balance sheet date which confirms the extent of work completed and certified for which revenue was recognised. In case of those works which were pending certification as on date of balance sheet, we obtained payment advices from the customers related to the said works, post balance sheet date.
Key Audit matter
How the matter was addressed in our audit
The Company has significant amount of trade receivables (Including retention and security deposits) and their recoverability requires management judgement due to the specific risks associated with these receivables.
There is an element of management judgement in assessment of extent of the recoverability of long outstanding trade receivables after the end of the contractual credit period.
Management assessed the recoverability of trade receivables by reviewing customers ageing profile, credit history, nature and ownership of organisation and status of subsequent settlements and determined whether an impairment provision is required.
We considered this matter to be significant to our audit due to the quantum of the receivables and their period of outstanding.
Our audit procedures in relation to the recoverability of trade receivables included
• Understood and tested the Company''s credit control procedures and tested key controls over granting credit to customers
• Tested ageing of trade receivables at the year ended on a sample basis
• Obtained list of long outstanding receivables and identified any debtors with financial difficulty through discussion with management
• Assessed the recoverability of these outstanding receivables through our discussion with management and with reference to detailed receivables listings for the subsequent period
• Also examined the arrangements/ correspondences with customers to assess the payment arrangement agreed with the customers and assessed the recoverability of the significant outstanding receivables
• Assessed the recoverability of the balances by comparing the outstanding amounts as at year end against subsequent recoveries
• The status and their organisational structure was also examined with reference to the credit risk and their creditability in making payments since most of the customers are public sector organisations
Considering all these, we found that the judgment made by the management in assessment of recoverability of receivables are found to be appropriate.
The Company''s Board of Directors is responsible for the preparation of the other information. The other information comprises the information included in the Management Discussion and Analysis, Board''s Report including Annexures to Board''s Report, Business Responsibility Report, Corporate Governance and Shareholder''s Information, but does not include the Standalone financial statements and our auditor''s report thereon which are expected to be made available to us at a later date.
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, which is not available to us as on the date of this report. In the absence of the said other information, we are unable to comment upon whether the other information is materially misstated or not.
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, total comprehensive income/ (loss), changes in equity and cash flows of the Company in accordance with the 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 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 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.
The Board of Directors are responsible for overseeing the Company''s financial reporting process.
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 financial 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 auditor''s 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 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
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.
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 of the current period 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.
