Hi Komal,

Post Capitalization means correction of the value of an asset, which is either set too low due to not carrying out a capitalization in the past, or which is treated entirely as expense.

where as Write up is the reversal of past depreciation and write-up is necessary either when the depreciation posted was too high or when the reasons for unplanned depreciation no longer exist.
