Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 came into existence in 2005, due to persistent problems with money laundering activities that the country had been facing despite India having one of the robust anti-money laundering systems. The government of India ensures that the financial institutions comply with the foreign-exchange laws, transaction reporting requirements, and KYC norms. The government has taken measures such as the demonetization in 2016 targeting the shell companies in the country to curb the money laundering activities in India. Such initiatives by the government are expected to play a major role in defining the future of money laundering in India.
In the Hawala method, a common money laundering method in India, an individual can access or transfer money from one location to another without the involvement of an authorized person. Also, the Hawala method of transferring money occurs at different foreign exchange rates, as stated by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). The key features of this system include transferring value without moving funds. India has always been a target of several terrorist groups and these groups launder money using Hawala.
The most common methods for laundering money in the financial institutions have been opening multiple bank accounts, purchasing bank checks with cash, and routing funds through complex legal structures. India had 9,600,000 currency transaction reports registered in 2013-2014.
