New Delhi: Over 1,400 instances of terror financing in country's economic channels were red-flagged by intelligence and security agencies last year, a latest report of the finance ministry says, marking a 300 percent jump in such suspicious transactions.
The figure of such reports from these agencies stood at 428 during 2010-11, the agency says.
"The FIU also supports the efforts of domestic intelligence and law enforcement agencies against terror financing by providing information specifically requested by them, either by searching its database or by calling specific information from the reporting entities," the report says.
The FIU is the national agency responsible for receiving, analyzing and disseminating suspicious transaction reports (STRs) to security and anti-money laundering and tax evasion departments of the country.
The agency also reported a more than 100 percent rise in the number of STRs received during 2011-12 as it collected a total of 69,224 such reports during this period as compared to 20,698 STRs during 2010-11.
The instances of reportage of fake currency in Indian banking channels are also on the rise, the FIU says.
