Question 3

# Assume that the cost of the project is incurred in the year of completion; interest is charged at the rate of 10% per annum. What is the cost incurred for projects completed in 1998?

Solution

Total cost in 1997 = 250 + 225 = 475 Crores.

These projects were completed in 1998 => Interest for 1 year must be added to the cost.

Interest = $$\frac{475*1*10}{100}$$ = 47.5 Crores

Total Amount = 475 + 47.5 = 522.5 Crores.
