The bill seeks to create a facilitative framework for the creation of official digital currency to be issued by the Reserve Bank of India.

It also seeks to prohibit all private cryptocurrencies in India, but with certain exceptions to promote the underlying technology of cryptocurrency.

Last week, Prime Minister, Narendra Modi urged democracies to collaborate on cryptocurrency, saying this was important to ensure that currencies like Bitcoin do not fall into the wrong hands.

The Indian government has concerns that cryptocurrencies could be used to finance terrorism and money laundering.

Officials are also skeptical of virtual currencies, pointing out their volatility and misleading promises to investors.
