Calculation of Goodwill on the basis of Capitalisation of Super Profit method
Total Assets                  190,000
Less: Liabilities (Loan + Creditors)                    30,000
Capital Employed                  160,000
Normal Profit = Capital employed x normal rate of return    (1,60,000 x 12%)                 19,200
Averge Profit                     30,000
Super Profit = Average Profit - Normal Profit                    10,800
Goodwill @ 4 years purchase of Super Profit    (10,800 x 4)                 43,200
Saurabh's share of goodwill     (43,200 x 1/3)                 14,400
