In policy news, the GST Council is considering levying 28 percent tax on cryptocurrencies and related services, sources told CNBC-TV18. The proposal is likely to be tabled in the next GST Council meeting.

According to the sources, the government’s view is to keep cryptos on par with lottery, casinos, betting and race courses. The law committee’s view will be tabled before the Council for a formal nod. The date for the next GST Council meeting is yet to be decided.

Further, the guidelines making it mandatory for aggregators to redress consumer complaints in a stipulated timeframe are also being worked upon. The proposal to levy highest GST slab of 28 percent will expand the indirect tax net on cryptocurrency related services.
