    Re: Does the phrase "put into effect" mean " in practice" or "practically"?

    Hello. I saw another sentence includes " be put into effect".
    Please let me know some more about the usage of this. Is it okay to understand original sentence as sentence2?

    Original sentence:Those and other such measures ought to have been put into effect in 1985
    Sentence 2:Those and other such measures ought to have been gone into effect in 1985

    Sentence 2 is incorrect. Can you see why?

    I can't.
    Isn't it correct to think the phrase "put into effect" to "go into effect"?

    "Those and other such measures ought to have (been) gone into effect in 1985."
    Delete "been" and it's OK.

    I deduce maybe those expressions can't be used as passive. Thank you.
