Sec 6A says if anything is repealed(removed) then such repeal will not affect the continuance of amendments made to such enactment (meaning if a person has been penalised earlier and later act got amended removing the penal provision, such person will not be relieved just for the sake of amendment) and Sec 8 says if any part of previous enactments are repealed or re-enacted then references in other acts to such enactment shall mean reference to re-enacted part (latest amendment). It says the re-enacted act (latest) is always referred once it is amended.

6A Say there is an Act in which an amendement was done. Later the act was repealed. The amendment existing in earlier Act doesnt get invalidated. 8 One Act (Act 1) refers to a provision in another Act (Act 2). Provision in Act 2 is amended. Now all references in Act 1 is to the amendement in Act 2.
