But in the solution while preparing amended cash book.......Rs. 450... is debited aadj.of balance brought forward. Is it a a clerical mistake.....
what is the meaning of the adjustment . Pls clarify the doubts. What is the correct adjustment.

Hi Retheeshp

There is a misprint in the book, the adjustment should have been:

'Balance brought forward should have been Rs 6,399'

So, Rs 450 (6,849 - 6339) is written on the debit side of Amended Cash Book. 

For explanation of the adjustment, you may follow the link given below:

Hope this clarifies your doubt!!
