The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, ICAI Bhawan, Post Box No. 7100, Indraprastha Marg, New Delhi – 110 002, so as to be received not later June 07, 2010. Comments can also be sent by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.

If Exposure Draft of AS 9 (Revised 20XX) applies: The agreement can be for rendering services and it can be for sale of goods. If the entity is not required to acquire and supply construction materials, it is an agreement for rendering services.
