Hi Nachiketa,

In the PMP exam standpoint, the purpose of the business case is to determine whether the expected outcomes of the project justify the required investment. In the PMBOK 6 there is no mentioning of cost in the business case (pg 30-32), therefore the project manager is not required to calculate any costs at this stage.

Hope this helps,
