Hawala is an informal money transfer system that is often used to transfer money illegally or without paying taxes. It is based on a network of trusted individuals and businesses who can transfer money without the use of formal banking channels. Hawala can be used for legitimate purposes, such as sending money to family and friends overseas, but it is also often used for illegal activities, such as money laundering and drug trafficking.

The seizure of Rs 63.40 lakh in Nizamabad is a significant blow to hawala operators in the region. It is a reminder that the Indian government is committed to cracking down on illegal financial transactions.
