Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS)",-

(A) in "Indian Accounting Standard (Ind AS) 101", in "Appendix B",-
(i) in paragraph B1, for item (d), the following shall be substituted, namely:-

"(d) classification and measurement of financial instruments (paragraphs B8-B8C); ";
(ii) for heading before paragraph B8, the following shall be substituted, namely:-

(i) after paragraph 63D, the following shall be inserted, namely:-

"63E Amendments to References to the Conceptual Framework in Ind AS issued in 2021 amended the footnote to the definition of an equity instrument in Appendix A. An entity shall apply that amendment for annual periods beginning on or after 1 April, 2021. An entity shall apply the amendment to Ind AS 102 retrospectively, in accordance with Ind AS 8, Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors. However, if an entity determines that retrospective application would be impracticable or would involve undue cost or effort, it shall apply the amendment to Ind AS 102 by reference to paragraphs 23–28, 50–53 and 54F of Ind AS 8.";

(ii) in Appendix A, for the footnote relating to "equity instrument", the following shall be substituted, namely:-

"* The Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting under Indian Accounting Standards (Conceptual Framework) issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, defines a liability as a present obligation of the entity to transfer an economic resource as a result of past events.";

"11 To qualify for recognition as part of applying the acquisition method, the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed must meet the definitions of assets and liabilities in the Framework for the Preparation and Presentation of Financial Statements in accordance with Indian Accounting Standards* issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India at the acquisition date. For example, costs the acquirer expects but is not obliged to incur in the future to effect its plan to exit an activity of an acquiree or to terminate the employment of or relocate an acquiree‘s employees are not liabilities at the acquisition date.

other Ind AS.";

(vi) in Appendix 1,

*
For this Standard, acquirers are required to apply the definitions of an asset and a liability given in Framework for Preparation and Presentation of Financial Statements in accordance with Indian Accounting Standards rather than the Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting under Indian Accounting Standards issued in 2021.

(a) paragraph 3 and 4 shall be renumbered as 4 and 5 respectively;
(b) after paragraph 2, the following shall be inserted, namely:-

"3. IFRS 4 contains provisions that address concerns arising from the different effective dates of IFRS 9 and the forthcoming Insurance Contracts Standard, IFRS 17. IFRS 4 provides two optional approaches: a temporary exemption from applying IFRS 9; and an overlay approach. It provides the following two options for entities that issue insurance contracts within the scope of IFRS 4:

 the option to recognise in other comprehensive income, rather than profit or loss, the volatility that could arise when IFRS 9 is applied before the new insurance contracts Standard is issued; and
 give companies whose activities are predominantly connected with insurance an optional temporary exemption from applying IFRS 9 until 2023.

The above optional temporary exemptions have not been provided under Ind AS 104. In the context of optional temporary exemptions from applying IFRS 9, paragraphs 3 and 5 have been amended and paragraphs 20A-20Q, 35A-35N, 39B-39M, 46-49 have been added in IFRS.
