Government notification to include virtual assets under the money laundering act for cryptocurrencies in India

According to the most recent decision made by the central government regarding digital assets, businesses dealing in cryptocurrencies or virtual assets will now be covered by the PMLA, or Prevention of Money Laundering Act 2002.

According to the gazette notification published on March 7 by the Union Finance Ministry, virtual digital assets (VDAs) will now be regarded as "reporting entities" under the PMLA. Additionally, it is required of cryptocurrency exchanges and intermediaries that deal with VDAs to undertake KYC on their users and clients. Also, cryptocurrency exchanges are obligated to notify the Financial Intelligence Unit of India (FIU-IND) of any questionable transactions.
