Is it illegal to buy foreign exchange without a bill in India? Also, is it illegal to convert foreign exchange to INR through an unauthorized dealer? If yes, which laws are broken?

1 Answer 1


This would be in violation of FEMA (Foreign Exchange Management Act). Then depending on specifics it would be bunch of tax law, money laundering etc.

  • Thanks. Could you be specific on what FEMA says in this regard?
