Question 4

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 1999?


Total cost of projects that were completed in 1999 is 275 + 235 + 250 + 300 = Rs 1060 Crores.

Interest for 2 years must also be added to this cost => $$1060(1+(0.1))^2$$ = 1060 * 1.21 = Rs 1282.6 Crores
