This is a Goods and Services Tax (GST). The government is currently considering a proposal that would levy a tax on every bitcoin transaction and margin trading.

The sharp rise in trading volume in cryptocurrencies occurred after the Supreme Court overturned a two-year ban from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on serving cryptocurrency companies.

The average daily trading volume on the top four Indian cryptocurrency exchanges as of December 29, 2020, was over $ 36 million, up from just under $ 4.5 million as of March 1, 2020.
