RBI Wants to Ban Cryptocurrencies; Says Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI), according to Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, is in favor of outlawing cryptocurrencies because it is worrying about their destabilizing impact on monetary and fiscal stability.

“In light of the issues stated by RBI on the disruptive influence of cryptocurrencies on the financial and economic stability of a country, RBI has urged for the formulation of legislation on this sector. In response to a question from the Lok Sabha on this subject, she stated in a written response that RBI believes cryptocurrency should be illegal.

The finance minister stated that only global cooperation will allow for effective regulation on this subject.  International cooperation is required to prevent systemic risk because cryptocurrencies are their nature borderless.

Therefore, any legislation for regulation or banning can only be effective after major international collaboration on assessing the risks and advantages and developing a uniform taxonomy and criteria, according to the expert.

In India, cryptocurrencies are currently unregistered, and the government is working to establish legislation to regulate them.
