The 'Cryptocurrency and Regulation of Official Digital Currency' bill will create a facilitating framework for an official digital currency to be issued by the Reserve Bank of India, and ban all private cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and Etherium.

In the bill, the authorities will also ban "active advertising" from cryptocurrency companies, including crypto brokers and trading platforms.

India's crypto market has boomed since the country's Supreme Court overturned a previous ban in April last year, rising more than 600 percent over the past year, according to research by Chainalysis.
