i think the formula is, net profit after tax/no. of equity shares.

The paid up value of shares outstanding is 31.37 crores and not 3.137crores (as stated in money control). Check if there was a stock split or something.

Dear venkat, EPS is calculated as Earnings available for equityshareholders ie normally PAT(Profit after tax) divided by Numter of equity shares issued and paid up.
you are doing the following mistkes:
1. You are dividing PAT by total paid up shares rather than number of equity shares which is 3.173 crores.
2. You are considering Pref shares capital also, which is wrong.

For june 2006:
EPS = 27.02/3.137
= 8.61
For June 2007
EPS = Earnings for equity shareholers/ no of shares
= Net Profit - Pref div - Cor div tax
= 95.28-6.00-1.50 = 87.78
= 87.78/3.137 = 27.98
in case more clarification required, post back.
