18 Accounting Standards promote: Uniformity Rationalization Comparability Transparency Dr. Varadraj Bapat 19 Accounting Standards in India

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) being apex accounting body in India, constituted the Accounting Standards Board (ASB) on 21st April, 1977, with a view to harmonies the diverse accounting policies and practices in use in India. Dr. Varadraj Bapat 20

While formulating accounting standards, the ASB takes into consideration the applicable laws, customs, usages and business environment prevailing in the country. The ASB also gives due consideration to International Financial Reporting Standards Dr. Varadraj Bapat

21 (IFRSs)/ International Accounting Standards (IASs) issued by IASB and tries to integrate them, to the extent possible, in the light of conditions and practices prevailing in India. Dr. Varadraj Bapat 22

IND AS In accordance with Indias assurance to converge with IFRS, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) issued a press release on 25 February 2011, notifying the Ind AS (Indian Accounting Standards). Several of the requirements of Ind AS are considerably

Dr. Varadraj Bapat 23 dissimilar from policies and practices presently followed by Indian companies. Further, while finalising the Ind AS, the Indian standard setters have examined individual IFRS and modified the requirements,

wherever necessary, to suit Indian requirements. This has resulted in differences between Ind AS and equivalent requirements under IFRS (referred to as carve outs). Dr. Varadraj Bapat 24 IND AS Ind
