Continuing with the endeavour for effective implementation of the Act, the Union Cabinet, on 2 December 2014 introduced the Companies (Amendment) Bill, 2014 in the Parliament to make certain amendments to the Act. Changes proposed include approval process of related party transactions, fraud reporting by auditors, areas where the Rules overreached the Act, and other procedural relaxations.
