Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS) are largely converged with the International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). In the recent past, IASB along with the IFRS Interpretations Committee (IFRIC) has issued various amendments to IFRS as part of their annual improvements process or as specific narrow scope amendments.

In view of the recent amendments to IFRS, and in order to keep the Ind AS converged with IFRS, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) issued certain amendments to Ind AS vide a notification dated 23 March 2022 (2022 amendments). These amendments have been issued in the following areas:
