*2 Calculation of Actual Amount of Interest on Mita’s & Usha’s Capital
Interest on Capital = Opening Capital X Rate of Interest

 Interest on Mita’s Capital = 1,40,000 X 6 100

Interest on Mita’s Capital = 8,400/-

 Interest on Usha’s Capital = 1,20,000 X 6 100

Interest on Usha’s Capital = 7,200/-

*3 Calculation of Interest on Mita’s & Usha’s Drawing

 Interest on Drawing = Drawing X Rate of Interest X Period Period = Date of withdrawal to End of Financial Year = 01/01/2016 to 31/03/2016 = 3 Months

 Interest on Mita’s Drawing = 32,000 X 6 X 3 100 12
