In the sources of the post-Harsha period, the term "Hundi" generally refers to a financial instrument or a bill of exchange. It was a widely used method of remittance and transfer of funds in medieval India. Hundi facilitated the transfer of money from one place to another, acting as a promissory note or a credit instrument. It allowed individuals to make payments or receive funds at different locations without physically carrying cash. Hundi was commonly used in trade and commerce, and it played a crucial role in facilitating economic transactions during that period.
