The proposed amendments have been reviewed and endorsed by the Standing Committee of Finance chaired by Shri. Jayant Sinha, along with some key recommendations and suggestions to meet the objectives as stated above. In this article, we discuss the observations and recommendations of the Standing Committee Report in light of the Amendment Bill.
