Auditor's Report

To the Members of Shriram City Union Finance LimitedREPORT ON THE AUDIT OF STANDALONE FINANCIALSTATEMENTSOPINION

1. We have audited the accompanying Standalone Financial Statements of Shriram City Union Finance Limited (the Company), which comprise the Balance Sheet as at March 31, 2022 and the Statement of Profit and Loss (including Other Comprehensive Income), Statement of Changes in Equity and the Statement of Cash Flows for the year then ended and Notes to the Financial Statements, including a summary of the Significant Accounting Policies and other explanatory information hereinafter referred to as Financial Statements

2. 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 (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 March 31, 2022, the Profit (Including Other Comprehensive Income), the Statement of changes in Equity, and its cash flows for the year ended on that date.

BASIS FOR OPINION

3. We conducted our audit of the 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 Auditors’ 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 financial statements under the provisions of the Companies Act, 2013 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 Financial statements.

EMPHASIS OF MATTER

4. Attention is drawn to Note No 68.8 to the Financial statements which describe the fact that the additional ECL provision on account of COVID-19 is made based on the Company’s historical experience, collection efficiencies till date, internal assessment on the impacted segments and other emerging forward-looking factors on account of the pandemic. However, the actual impact may vary due to prevailing uncertainty caused by the pandemic. The Company’s management is continuously monitoring the situation and the economic factors affecting the operations of the Company. Further, the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will impact the Company’s Financial Performance is dependent on future developments, which are highly uncertain

Our opinion is not modified in respect of the above matter.

KEY AUDIT MATTERS

5. Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgement, were of most significance in our audit of the Financial Statements of the year under report. 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

Auditor''s Response

Impairment and Write-offs

The Recognition and Measurement of Impairment and Write-off of Loans and Advances involves estimates, management judgements and appropriate processing of information from the IT systems because of which the same has been identified as a key audit matter.

Our key audit procedures included:

• We test checked the computation of the Probable default (PD) which denotes the statistical pattern of occurrence of defaults in individual accounts over a period of past five years.

• We also test checked the computation of the ratio of Loss Given Default (LGD) which denotes the non-recoveries (after considering the collections) till the date of Balance Sheet.

• We reviewed the changes made by the management in estimating the PD and the LGD on the background of COVID 19 outbreak and additional ECL provisions made on the basis of above revisions.

• We examined the computation of Impairment Losses by application of PD and LGD and ensured that the entire pool of Loans and advances has been considered for the same.

• We reviewed the Internal financial controls over data extraction and data validation from the ERP system for computation of PD and LGD with the participation of our internal IT expert.

• We performed analytical procedures for ascertaining of reasonableness of Impairment provisions.

• We carried out a combination of procedures involving enquiry and observation, re-performance on a test basis and inspection of evidence in respect of computation of provisions including considering the situations where additional impairment was required for individual accounts and review of procedures and practices, justification notes and approvals in case of Bad Debts written off.

• Our audit procedures did not reveal any significant inconsistencies with respect to provisions for impairment and write-offs.

ii

Assessment of Provisions and Contingent liabilities in respect of certain litigations including Direct and Indirect Taxes, various claims led by other parties not acknowledged as debt (Note No. 41 to the financial statements): There is high level of judgement required in estimating the level of provisioning. The company’s assessment is supported by the facts of matter, their own judgment, past experience, and advice from legal and independent tax consultants wherever considered necessary. Accordingly, unexpected adverse outcomes may significantly impact the Company’s reported profit and state of affairs presented in the Balance Sheet.

Our audit approach involved:

Obtaining an understanding of internal controls relevant to the audit in order to design our audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances;

a. Understanding the current status of the litigations/ tax assessments;

b. Examining recent orders and/or communication received from various tax authorities/ judicial forums and follow up action thereon;

c. Evaluating the merit of the subject matter under consideration with reference to the grounds presented therein and available independent legal / tax advice

Sr.

No.

Key Audit Matter

Auditor''s Response

We determined the above area as a Key Audit Matter in view of associated uncertainty relating to the outcome of these matters which requires application of judgment in interpretation of law. Accordingly, our audit was focused on analysing the facts of subject matter under consideration and judgments/ interpretation of law involved

d. Review and analysis of evaluation of the contentions of the Company through discussions, collection of details of the subject matter under consideration, the likely outcome and consequent potential outflows on those issues; and verification of disclosures related to significant litigations and taxation matters.

INFORMATION OTHER THAN THE STANDALONE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND AUDITOR''S REPORT THEREON

6. The Company’s Board of Directors is responsible for the other information. The other information included in the Company’s annual report like Management Discussion and Analysis, Director’s Report and Corporate Governance Report, but does not include the Standalone Financial Statements and our auditors’ report thereon which we obtained prior to the date of this auditor’s report, and Annual Report, which is expected to be made available to us after that date.

Our opinion on the standalone financial statements does not cover the other information and we do not express any form of assurance or 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 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 AND THOSE CHARGED WITH GOVERNANCE FOR THE STANDALONE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

7. 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 the accounting principles generally accepted in India,

including the Accounting Standards specified under Section 133 of the Act, read with the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules 2015. 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 the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, relevant to the preparation and presentation of the Financial Statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the Financial Statements, the Board of Directors 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 the Board of Directors 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 THEFINANCIAL STATEMENTS

8. Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the 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 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 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 controls relevant to the audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3)(i) of the Companies Act, 2013, 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 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 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 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 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. From the matters communicated with those charged with governance, we determine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements of the current year 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.
