Overview

Today’s world is a global village and virtual world. With the increase in international trade and travelling, the world has also been exposed to the threats of parking ill-gotten money, which also helps in terror-financing or any other criminal activities.

It is due to these reasons that strict conditions/ recomme-ndations are levied by ‘Financial Action Task Force’ (FATF) (an inter-governmental body to watch the global money laundering and terrorist financing) to prevent money-laundering in order to ensure that only legal economic activities are carried out and in case of violations, various sanctions are placed to make it difficult for unscrupulous elements to misuse the economic transactions for corruption, money-laundering and terror financing.

As per the recommendations of FATF, the government has recently amended the Anti Money Laundering Act 2010 in 2020 extending scope of the Act to a wide range of businesses and professions.
