India Crypto Tax News: With India’s finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman set to place the budget for 2023-24 soon, the crypto community is hoping for relief in the tough crypto tax stance. The Union Budget 2023 will be placed in the country’s Parliament on February 1, 2023. Even as the crypto market is yet to gain regulatory clarity around the globe, the scope of the industry continues to rise. This is despite the huge hurdles it witnessed in the form of Terra network collapse and the recent FTX bankruptcy.
While several countries around the world are still yet to provide a clear stance on crypto regulation, countries like Singapore and India are approaching it with a selective approach. In what could be the beginning of a huge project, the country’s central bank recently launched the Digital Rupee (e₹) for the country’s wholesale businesses in select cities. This is also seen as a part of the Reserve Bank of India’s ongoing efforts to launch its own Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).

This is even more important considering the risk of increased migration of companies from India.
