1) The NGO has repaid an interest free loan of Rs70mn by redeeming Fixed Deposits during FY14. This has led to a sharp drop in interest income (-98% YoY) in FY14.
2) Other income includes closing stock of books.
3) Digantar has multiple programmes focused on education and has a large staff to execute its programmes. Hence, the high salary cost is justified.
