Crypto bill to be presented in parliament !!!



India, like many other major countries, is closer to regulating cryptocurrencies. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in a recent interview revealed that the country is itching to regulate the crypto coins. She revealed that India’s crypto bill is now ready to be presented during the Parliament Monsoon Session. The bill was originally expected in the Budget session.

The Union Finance Minister recently said that the new Crypto bill is on its way. She said that the government has taken inputs from industry stakeholders to prepare the document. The FM’s revelation comes after continued enquiries regarding India’s crypto bill, which has been in the works for over two years now.

Speaking in the interview, Nirmala Sitharaman said that the government has put a lot of effort into the bill. She said that the stakeholders’ inputs were taken and the Cabinet note was also ready. She gave hope to the Indian crypto community by saying that the bill will soon be moved. As of now, the bill consisting of the new laws to regulate cryptocurrencies in India could be up for debate during the next session of the Parliament which will be held on July 19.

The Indian government’s stance on cryptocurrencies remains to stay unclear. The original Crypto bill was expected to ‘ban all private cryptocurrencies.' It was rumoured to set a new framework to form a central bank digital currency (CBDC) that could be regulated. The government was believed to be against the decentralised currencies. However, this has changed since.
