Withdrawal of the Announcement issued by the Council on ‘Treatment of exchange differences under Accounting Standard (AS) 11 (revised 2003), The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates vis-à-vis Schedule VI to the Companies Act, 1956’
1.  The Council of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India had issued an Announcement on ‘Treatment of exchange differences under Accounting Standard (AS) 11 (revised 2003), The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates vis-à-vis Schedule VI to the Companies Act, 1956’, which was published in the November 2003 issue of ‘The Chartered Accountant’ (pp. 497)1

As per Rule 3(2) of the said Rules, the Accounting Standards shall come into effect in respect of accounting periods commencing on or after the publication of these accounting standards under the said Notification.
3.  AS 11, as published in the above Government Notification, carries a footnote that “it may be noted that the accounting treatment of exchange differences contained in this Standard is required to be followed irrespective of the relevant provisions of Schedule VI to the Companies Act, 1956”.
