amendment to prevention of corruption act 1988

sir, can anyone please share his/her views on amendment to prevention of corruption act 1988?
As in, in which year did the amendment came into effect?

Example- if the offence period is of year 2016 to 17, then the minimum punishment awarded by the trial Coury in 2020 for it will be of 01 year (as it was before amendment) or will it be 04 years (as per the amendment to this act)?
