Sorry for the late reply 
It is management responsibility to prepare financial statement as per financial reporting framework. Management promises this in letter of engagement, then management confirms it at the end of the audit in written representation, but even if management has said it twice , it is auditors responsibility to check whether accounting standards are followed , whether Schedule III is complied with ,whether guidance notes are followed and so on. Taking written representation does not mean that auditor will leave his responsibility to check compliance with financial reporting framework i.e. Accounting Standards, Schedule III and Guidance notes.
