Meanwhile, the Indian government’s legislative agenda for the upcoming winter session of Parliament showed it plans to ban ‘private cryptocurrencies’. The government is set to introduce “The Cryptocurrency and Regulation of Official Digital Currency Bill, 2021" in the winter session of Parliament beginning 29 November for consideration and passing. 

The bill aims "to create a facilitative framework for the creation of the official digital currency to be issued by the Reserve Bank of India. The bill also seeks to prohibit all private cryptocurrencies in India; however, it allows for certain exceptions to promote the underlying technology of cryptocurrency and its uses," it said in a notification on the Lok Sabha website. The definition of private crypto-currencies hasn’t been clarified by the government yet.
