by | Feb 9, 2022

Fortune India covered an article on the legality and the taxability of Cryptocurrency in India, following the finance ministry’s announcement of Crypto Tax as part of the 2022 Union Budget tabled in parliament.

As part of their article, they spoke to Ravi S. Raghavan, Partner – Tax & Private Client Group at Majmudar & Partners regarding implications in the Union Budget pertaining to the taxability of cryptocurrency in India.

He stated that “Sellers will have to withhold the tax even when there is no cash involved.

Investors will become cautious.”
