The total assets of AIADMK between the financial year 2011-12 & 2015-16 increased by 155%, from Rs 88.21 crore to Rs 224.87 crore," said the report.
The report that analyses the assets and liabilities of the regional parties between the financial years 2011-12 and 2015-16 is based on audited accounts submitted by the parties to the income-tax department and the Election Commission of India.
The assets declared by the parties fall under six major heads -- fixed assets, loans and advances, FDR(fixed deposit receipts)/ deposits, TDS (tax deducted at source), investments and other assets.
During the financial year 2015-16, the highest asset category was FDR/deposits under which the parties declared Rs 1054.8 crore. The only asset category to show a reduction in value was "Loans and Advances" - from Rs 19.75 crore in 2011-12 to Rs 16.2 crore in 2015-16.
The liabilities declared by the parties fall under two major heads -- borrowings (from banks, overdraft facilities and sundry creditors) and other liabilities.
TRS declared the highest liabilities (Rs 15.97 crore) during the financial year 2015-16 though it had declared zero liability during 2011-12. TDP declared liabilities of Rs 8.186 crore during 2015-16, the report said.
