Their capitals on 1st April, 2012 were Rs.2,00,000; Rs.3,00,000 and Rs.6,00,000 respectively. After the floods in Uttaranchal, all partners decided to help the flood victims personally. For this Naveen withdrew Rs.10,000 from the firm on 1st September; 2012. Seerat, instead of withdrawing cash from the firm took blankets amounting to Rs.12,000 from the firm and distributed to the flood victims. On the other hand, Hina withdrew Rs.2,00,000 from her capital on 1st January, 2013 and set up a centre to provide medical facilities in the flood affected area.
