Block chain technology is safe and reliable and infact Govt. is trying to explore options to make use of block chain technology in various fields... but govt. is againt Bitcoins because it is an intrusion in government's monopoly to issue currency in India. Bitcoins are a competition to currency issued by RBI... Hence govt. is againt it
