Draft format of independent auditors report for the FY 2021-22

Independent auditors report for the FY 2021-22 Everyone is talking about amendments in schedule III & CARO however most of those are not highlighting changes in Independent Auditors Report . Though changes are small but can result into significant risk of negligence. First I would like to request every one kindly read entire independent audit report for every auditee. At least read what you are signing and what would be the implications. I have seen audit reports for the FY 2021-22 which are not referring to the The Companies (Accounting Standards) Rules, 2021. MCA already prescribed accounting standards w.e.f. 01/04/2021. But as usual due to "Ctrl C+ Ctrl V" same is not reflecting in the independent auditors report and reference to old rule of 2006 is given. Also some of us not inserting new para under rule  Rule 11 of the Companies (Audit and Auditors) Rules, 2014. Kindly refer attached report of Small Company for ease reference only (please note this is just a draft
