 has been credited to revaluation reserve during 2010-11.

 resolution to not withdraw any amount in the future from the Special
 Reserve created under Section 36(1)(Viii) of the Income Tax Act 1961.

 the special reserve as a permanent difference and reversed the deferred
 tax liability previously created in March 31, 2012 in respect of such
 Special Reserve.
