India’s supreme court has set a new date to hear the petitions against the cryptocurrency banking ban by the country’s central bank. Meanwhile, the crypto community in India is campaigning on social media for “positive regulations” and the rollback of the banking ban.
New Supreme Court Hearing Date
The Supreme Court of India has reportedly set a new date to hear the petitions against the crypto banking ban by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). The central bank issued a circular in April banning all regulated financial institutions from providing services to crypto businesses. Banks complied and closed accounts of crypto exchanges by July.
A court document circulating on Twitter on Thursday indicates that the supreme court has scheduled Jan. 15, 2019, as the date it will revisit the crypto case.
The court originally scheduled to hear the case on Sept. 11 but continually postponed it. Then, on Oct. 25, it directed the government to submit a counter affidavit within two weeks, detailing its crypto regulatory progress.
