Company law to be amended in budget session
New Delhi: The government plans to introduce a bill to amend the Companies Act in the budget session of parliament to enable convergence of Indian accounting standards with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
"The ministry will carry out the exercise for necessary amendments in the Companies Act in the forthcoming budget session of parliament," said a statement from the corporate affairs ministry.
"The required amendments to the schedule-VI and XIV as well as accounting standards rules would be carried out simultaneously so that necessary legislative changes are in place to facilitate convergence," it added.
The government plans to migrate to an internationally accepted accounting standard by April 2011.
A core group of officials from the ministry of corporate affairs and finance, the Reserve Bank of India and regulators from various related fields met Tuesday to finalise the roadmap to adopt the new standards.
