As per Para 8 of AS 10, any expenditure which increase the performance of assets should be capitalized.

If upgradation of operating system increase performance & if it estimated to be used for more than a year then it can be capitalized.

However if the upgradation of operating system is routine for every year, then it should be treated as expenses.

Addition of RAM to be capitalized & depraciation to be calcualted based on no of useful life the system not RAM.
