“There is No Cryptocurrency Ban,” Indian Government Says
The government of India seems to be confused when it comes to the previous bitcoin and cryptocurrency ban.

Now, the authority has come out to show its position on this matter, by revealing that the financial authorities have imposed no restrictions yet on digital currency dealings.
