The parliamentary winter session is set to begin on November 29. The federal government has decided to table a total of 26 bills in this session.

Virtual currency called cryptocurrency is gaining popularity all over the world. The growth of cryptocurrencies has skyrocketed since the advent of bitcoin in 2009. The value of a Bitcoin, which was less than 100 rupees then, is now over 50 lakhs.

Aside from the public interest in buying cryptocurrency, the sale of drugs and weapons on the Dark Web through such currencies is also on the rise.

In this context, Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently chaired a consultative meeting on cryptocurrency. Following this, the central government has taken the initiative to file a bill related to cryptocurrency.
