The Indian government is amending current legislation to require companies to disclose cryptocurrency holdings in their financial statements.

  • According to an announcement from the Government of India Ministry of Corporate Affairs shared on Wednesday, the new rules will apply to all Indian companies as of April 1.

  • The guidance applies to companies that have traded or invested in cryptocurrency and virtual currency during the financial year, requiring them to detail profits or losses on crypto transactions.

  • The new language appears on Page 12 of the memo and will be added to the Companies Act of 2013.

  • Currently, there is uncertainty over the future of cryptocurrency in India, with its government planning to introduce a bill that could ban it outright.
