The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) recommends Accounting Standards to National Financial Reporting Authority (NFRA) and the Standards are notified under section 133 of the Companies Act, 2013 by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India after considering the recommendation of the National Financial Reporting Authority (NFRA)* constituted under the Companies Act, 2013, in the Official Gazette as “Rules” made under the Companies Act, 2013. The statutory process was followed in the formulation of Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS) which have been notified as the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, 2015. In developing Ind AS, copyright material owned by the IFRS Foundation has been used and in respect of this material all rights are reserved. For the avoidance of doubt, Ind AS differ from the IFRS Standards as they contain certain carve-outs and carve-ins for making them contextually relevant to the Indian economic and legal environment.
Notwithstanding anything contained in the above paragraph, Ind AS notified under the Companies Act 2013 are governed by the provisions of the Indian Copyright Act 1957 and the copyright therein vests in Government of India.

Ind AS are notified by the Government of India in respect of its application in the Republic of India and have not been prepared or endorsed by the International Accounting Standards Board (the “Board”).
