The government, which strategies a law to ban private digital currencies, favours a digital currency supported by the Reserve Bank of India. It's updated as of April 23, 2021. 


Government officials and specialists claim cryptocurrency prices are too unstable to serve as a fiat currency. 


Doubting over the legal status of cryptocurrencies is upsetting Indian investors who, according to unofficial guesses, hold about $1.5 billion (Rs 10,000 crore) in digital currencies. The government, which plans a law to ban private digital currencies, favours a digital currency supported by the Reserve Bank of India. 


While current investors could get conscious space to exit their holdings in the event of a ban on trading, mining and allotment cryptos, the proposed legal building may seek declarations of holdings and transactions looking back from investors and traders. 


On the other hand, RBI has designated it’s “very much in the game”, and is ready to launch its digital currency. Central bank digital exchange is a work in progress. The RBI team is occupied on it, technology side and technical side…how it will be launched and rolled out, Governor Shaktikanta Das said freshly. 


The proposed law 


The Cryptocurrency and Regulation of Official Digital Currency Bill, 2021, which will ban all private cryptocurrencies and lay down the controlling framework for the launch of an “official digital currency”, was to be presented in Parliament’s Budget session, but was detained up as the government endures discussions with stakeholders. 


There is the skilled panel’s report, trailed by inter-ministerial thoughts, meetings by the Cabinet Secretary and submissions by several people worried. The Bill will take all of that into account,” a senior government official specified, without committing to a timeline. 


A 3-6 month exit period proceeding to ban the trading, mining and issuing of cryptos has been chatted in inter-ministerial discussions. The high-power inter-ministerial committee has earlier recommended a ban on all private cryptocurrencies.?
