Based on this principle an attempt is made to discount all income receivable at various points of time during the life of a given project. Similarly expenditure on a project also may be spread over a number of years and one may find its present worth. Here discounting is the act of taking a sum in the future and calculating its present value, assuming some particular rate of return. Discounting can be considered inverse of compounding.

Annual Cash flow in Rs. Life In years A 25000 3000 10 8 3000 1000 5 C 12000 2000 8 0 20000 4000 10 E 40000 8000 10 Solution: Assuming scrap value to be zero and depreciation rate to be linear, we can find depreciation for each proposal by dividing the investment from life in years. 20 10,000 E: 40000 = 20,000 2 40000 = 4000 10 8000-4000=4000 4000 = 020 20,000 A 25000 = 12500 2 25000 = 2500 10 3000-2500=500 ~=004 12500 27 Methods for Comparing Investment Alternatives Thus the ranking of the proposals are C, B, D, E and A.

Now for Plan A: Total cost =200,000 (CAF-1O%-15) -1,50,000 = Rs. 6,85,400. 22 Methods for Comparing Investment Alternatives The annual income projected over 15 years =25000 (CAFS-1O%-15) = R<;. 7,94,300 Thus net Profit in Plan A = Revenue-Cost = Rs. 7,94,300 - Rs. 6,85,400 = Rs. 1,08,900 Similarly for Plan B the net profit will be Rs.
