Procedure for calculation & fixation of Monetary Limits of SSI Units:

Monetary limit of the company is fixed on the basis of the unit's net sales turnover during the last three years reflected in the Audited Balance Sheets.

Sample calculation:

Net Sales = Total sales – All Duties, Taxes, returns etc
Details of the net sales of the company during last three years:-
2002-03 – Rs. 50 Lacs
2003-04 – Rs. 75 Lacs
2004-05 – Rs. 80 Lacs
Therefore, Monetary Limit = Rs. (50+75+80)/3 X 50%
                                   = Rs. 34.26 Lac.
                                  Say = Rs. 34 Lac.

  • In case the Company/Partnership concern/Proprietorship unit is in loss for one year out of past three years, their monetary limit will be fixed at 40% of their average net sales turnover.
  • Similarly, when the SSI Unit is in loss for two years out of the past three years, the monetary limit will be accordingly fixed at 30% of their average net sales turnover of the past three years.
  • In the event of SSI unit being in loss throughout past three years, the monetary limit of the Unit will be fixed at 20% of the average net sales turnover of the Unit during the past three years    In cases of initial registration where the firm has been in existence for less than 3 years MTL may be fixed at 50% of the average net sales value of the last year for which audited accounts are available.
