    Dear Anjan,

    In customization settings,we need to customize depreciation keys and assign the % of of Depreciation for income tax rules and company act. Deprection always work on % wise in SAP.You can give useful as 999 years. and if u want reduce the same up to Rs.1 as per business,let me know which act says that?

    You can implement as cost account deprecition method and reduce whatever u want and mention your percentage agaisn 4 year based.

    Best Rgds.
