IT CAN'T BE SOLVED ON A SINGLE MAIL... U MUST PURCHASE THE BOOK NAMED "HOW TO READ A BALANCE SHEET" WHICH HAS BEEN WRITTEN BY AN ENGLISH AUTHOR... OR ELSE U MAY ASK THE TAX CONSULTANT OR CA'S...

There are no fixed formulas for reading a balance sheet and analying it . you ought to get into intricate details of overall as well as individual items of the balance sheet.
