No Difference of Opinion on Crypto Between RBI and Finance Ministry

RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das answered some questions regarding cryptocurrency, the digital rupee, and upcoming digital currency legislation Thursday at the India Economic Conclave organized by The Times Network.

There have been questions about whether the finance ministry and the central bank share the same view on cryptocurrency in India. While Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said that the government will not shut off all options regarding cryptocurrencies and will take a calibrated approach, the central bank has voiced “major concerns†about cryptocurrencies.

When asked during the Economic Conclave event on Thursday if there is a difference of opinion coming from the central bank and the finance ministry on cryptocurrency, the RBI governor affirmed:

“I don’t think that is any difference of opinion,†Das reiterated, adding that “The central bank digital currency is one thing, while the cryptocurrencies which are being traded in the market are something else.â€

The governor of India’s central bank emphasized that both the RBI and the government “are committed to financial stability,†elaborating:
