The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has asked mutual fund companies not to engage in or invest in digital assets-based investments until the Indian government brings in the cryptocurrency bill.

The discussion on the cryptocurrency bill was to be done in this Parliament winter session, but later the governor did not bring the crypto bill to the table and said, we should make new haste now.


In the last month, Invesco Mutual Fund has already delayed the launch of the cryptocurrency-based exchange-traded fund and the applications for the upcoming new mutual fund are yet to be approved by SEBI.


According to Ajay Tyagi, chairman of The Securities and Exchange Board of India, mutual funds should not make this type of investment unless there is a law to regulate the industry.


“It is prudent for regulated entities with public markets exposure or focus, or any form of public solicitation, to wait for additional clarity regarding the legality or definition of digital assets as assets or securities or commodities in India,” Nitin Sharma, partner at Antler India and blockchain told Business Insider.


Market analysts say that keeping in mind the increasing demand for digital assets, the mutual fund company is fully prepared to invest in digital currency sectors. Only the company is waiting for the permission of the government. If the mutual company enters this digital industry, then there will be a new crypto journey for the mutual industry.
