Indian government has revealed that despite the restrictions by the Reserve Bank of India, the country has not imposed  ban on circulation of encrypted currencies so far.

“At present, there is no separate law to deal with coded currencies issue, so all departments and law enforcement agencies such as the Reserve Bank of India, the Implementation Directorate and the Income Tax authorities to take action in accordance with current laws”, said Anurag Thakur, State Minister for Finance and Corporate Affairs.
