Money Laundering has become important in the wake of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. After September 11, 2001, money laundering becomes a major concern of the US Bush administration’s war on terror. Critics argue that it has become less and less an important matter for the White House but in India, Anti-Money Laundering has gained tremendous importance. The attack on the USA forced all the Central Banks in the world to come together to combat Money Laundering. The primary AML legislation in India is the Prevention of Money Laundering Act which was passed in 2002.

In India Money Laundering Laws are still in the nascent stage but the techniques of Laundering are existing for a long. Hawala form of Laundering is very common in India.
