The move comes as part of the anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing regime.
These new guidelines have been issued under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act during FY23 and published in a recently released report. This is part of the anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism regime followed by the country. As a part of it, financial institutions and intermediaries are mandated to share suspicious transaction reports with the FIU which analyses them and shares them for action with various investigative and intelligence agencies.FIU proactively engages with the financial sector regulators and reporting entities to understand emerging risks.
