Working Note:
(1) * Profit and Loss Alc : Contract Price = Rs. 22,50,000
Amount of work certified= Rs. 11,25,000
That means amount of work certified is `1/2` ( 50%) of contract price.
∴The following formula should be used =`2/3 xx "Notional Profit "xx "Cash Received"/"Work certified"`

∴ `2/3xx Rs. 4,91,400 xx (Rs.9,00,000)/(Rs.11,25,000)` = Rs. 2,62,080 (Profit and Loss Alc)

∴ Rs. 2,29,320 (Reserve)(Rs. 4,91,400 - Rs. 2,62,080)
