Hello, To know about the applicability of the amendment you need to visit the ICAI website. Moreover as per the ICAI rule the applicability of the amendment to the exam is if such amendment is made befor 6 month from the exam date.whereas you are concern with few of the amendment which are as follows. 1)Finance Act 2015 will not be applicable to Nov 15 exam, but to be much clearly on this you need to wait for the institute notification.In my opinion it will be not applicable., 2) Ind AS are applicable as institute has clearly notified it that in coming exam Ind AS are applicable for the exam. 3) CARO 2003 has been now not relevant as the Companies Act,2013 has been applicable. In that situation CARO 2013 will be applicable to the exam of Nov 15

IND AS ARE APPLICABLE FOR NOVEMBER 2015 EXAM (SEE NOTIFICATION ON INSTITUTE WEBSITE). AND CARO 2003 WAS NOT APPLICABLE FOR MAY 2015 EXAM.HENCE IT WILL NOT APPLY IN NOV 2015 EXAM.
