Indian Parliament Approves Anti-Laundering Bill

The Indian Parliament on Thursday passed a new anti-money laundering bill, according to reports in the local media. The Press Trust of India news agency revealed late last week that the legislation was passed by both houses in a voice vote without debate.

The bill was reportedly drafted along the lines of a 1990 UN General Assembly resolution which urged member states to act against money laundering by adopting national programmes and legislation.

India also joined with other G-20 countries in strengthening its resolve to counter terrorist financing and to continue: 'efforts to eliminate other abuses of the financial system, particularly money laundering' at a meeting in New Delhi last week.
