The Company had entered into a development agreement with a party in March 2007 pursuant to which a property which the Company had undertaken to develop with a vendor was assigned to the party for being developed on certain terms and conditions contained in the said development agreement. In the Companys account for the year ended 31st March 2007 since the property undertaken by the Company was accounted as purchases and the subsequent transaction entered into with the party was recognized as sales; a profit of Rs.20,00,00,000/- on this transaction was taken as surplus in the profit and loss account. During earlier year a member of a predecessor in title of the company trespassed and illegally entered into possession of the subject property.
