The only one method of depreciation under tax act is WDV method.
Undertaking engaged in generation or generation or distribution of the asset can depreciate their individual asset on Straight line method.

Option for changing method of Depreciation (SLM to WDV)

The above undertaking can claim depreciation under WDV method on block of asset basis. Such option need to be exercised on or before filing return of income Asseseement relevant to the previous year.

Under companies Act

There is a choice availabe as far as assesee is concerned.He may can adopt SLM or WDV method at the respective rate prescribed under the Act..
