On Delta Exchange India, you never really interact with crypto. Your balances and unrealised profits always remain in INR and hence, the 1% TDS and 30% flat tax on profits is not applicable. Moreover, offsetting of losses in also allowed.

  • Margin and settlement currency: All contracts on Delta Exchange India are notionally quoted, margined and settled in USD.
