On 30 March 2019, MCA has issued certain amendments to Ind AS.
Ind AS are largely converged with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).
The IASB along with the IFRS Interpretation Committee (IFRIC) issue amendments to IFRS as part of the annual improvement process or as specific amendments. In order to keep Ind AS converged with IFRS, MCA issues similar amendments to Ind AS.
