Rajeev, Sanjeev and Jatin were partners in a firm manufacturing blanket. They were sharing profits in the ratio of 5 : 3: 2. Their capitals on 1st April, 2012 were Rs 1,00,000, Rs 2,00,000 and Rs 4,00,000 respectively. After the flood in Uttarakhand, all partners decided to help the flood victims personally.

For this, Rajeev withdrew Rs 10,000 from the firm on 1st October 2012. Sanjeev instead of withdrawing cash from the firm took blankets amounting to Rs 14,000 from the firm and distributed those to the flood victims. On the other hand, Jatin withdrew Rs 1,50,000 from his capital on 31st December 2012 and set up a centre to provide medical facilities in the flood affected area.
