and also for CRR, when it should be created and how to use it...

Capital Redemption Revere is an reserve created when a

company buys it owns shares which reduces its share capital.

This reserve is not distributable to shareholders and can be

used to pay bonus... 


USE :-

Section 80(5) permits use of CRR for issue of bonus shares. However, if you

wish to use it for any other purpose, you will have to make a scheme of

arrangement u/s 391-393 and get it approved from the High Court.
