The TDS is likely to reduce speculation in trade, according to experts, and may reduce the amount of cryptocurrency trade in India when it takes the market in July.

.Proposed tax provisions can kill the crypto industry in India said Sumit Gupta (CEO – CoinDCX) at the BT crypto conclave. The tax rate increase could lower the net gains that investors can earn, which could reduce the attractiveness of this virtual asset. “The Government’s policy is clear to diminish the value of crypto-assets as evident by the tax slab with the highest rate, 30 percent that is applicable to all gains and in the absence of any way to offset losses that result from transfers.
However, certain countries, such as Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, and Thailand have cut their tax rates to make them more crypto-friendly. “If India’s tax rates for India is not cut the market could move to more crypto-friendly nations. Many experts believe that this will not be good for the country if the crypto industry is forced to leave from India,” said Kunal Jagdale, founder of BitsAir Exchange
While these steps do bring a particular degree of quality and also stability in the taxation regime when it comes to crypto-assets, one still needs to face the concern of their application. The report recommends that 15-20 percent of the investors in crypto properties stay in the 18-20 year age. A number of such investors do not file income tax returns because they are mainly trainees spending their extra cost savings or “spending money” to make a fast revenue. Ensuring that this market actually follows the letter of the law may be a difficulty for the profits authorities and also it would certainly interest see just how they conquer it.
