Due to high taxes on this segment in the country, growth is being affected. Before the budget, the crypto industry had requested the central government to reduce taxes on this segment. However, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman did not make any mention of the crypto segment in the interim budget, which disappointed the stakeholders associated with this industry. The crypto industry hopes that some changes can be made for this segment in the budget presented by the new government after the Lok Sabha elections. About one and a half years ago, the Central Government crypto TDS of one percent was imposed on the transaction. Along with this, 30 percent tax was imposed on profits from crypto. Stakeholders associated with the crypto segment say that this has led to a decrease in crypto trading activities in the country. Regulators in some countries have also warned of risks regarding this segment.
