NEW DELHI: The corporate affairs ministry on Wednesday issued a clarification regarding ''appointed date'' in the scheme of mergers and amalgamations under the Companies Act.

Further, the ministry said the term ''appointed date'' used in Section 232(6) of the Companies Act, 2013, would be deemed to be the ''acquisition date'' for the purpose of conforming to Ind AS 103 standard dealing with business combinations.
