  • The guidance applies to companies that have traded or invested in cryptocurrency and virtual currency during the financial year, requiring them to detail profits or losses on crypto transactions.
  • The new language appears on Page 12 of the memo and will be added to the Companies Act of 2013.
  • Currently, there is uncertainty over the future of cryptocurrency in India, with its government planning to introduce a bill that could ban it outright.
