The Indian Government Reportedly Worried Of Cryptocurrencies Destabilizing the Rupee
The Indian government panel entrusted with drafting the
crypto regulation is supposedly “fixated” with the effect they might
have on the rupee in the event if they are permitted to be utilized in
payments. The panel was set up in November 2017 headed by the top bureaucrat
Subhash Chandra Garg, Secretary of the Department of Economic Affairs. The
board is as of now said to be in the propelled phases of drafting the
regulations for cyrptocurrency utilization in India.
One of the representatives from the crypto currency
background who as of late met the ministers, asking for obscurity says that
“If bitcoin and other digital currencies are going to be
allowed to be used for payments then whether it will end up destabilising the
fiat currency is a major concern for them (the Garg panel), the overall impact
on the financial ecosystem that it is likely to have is still unclear and it
has been a challenge to convince them on this particular point.”
While Garg’s panel  is
settling its report containing the proposals for the country’s crypto
regulation , the Ministry of Finance told the Parliament that  “It is difficult to state a specific timeline
to come up with clear recommendations”  furthermore
that Garg’s panel is “pursuing the matter with due caution.”
The Financial Stability Board (FSB) has effectively
distributed a report in October a year ago on the financial stability
implications of crypto assets, which expresses that “crypto assets do not pose
a material risk to global financial stability at this time.”
In any case, it most likely notes that ‘vigilant monitoring’
is required keeping in mind the rapid market developments and should the
utilization of ‘crypto-assets’ keep on advancing, it could have some
implications for financial stability later on.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) also emphasized in its Trend
and Progress of Banking in India 2017-18 report that cryptocurrencies are not a
risk right now, but rather they do require steady observing on the overall
financial strength contemplations, given the fast extension in their
utilization.
