According to Investopedia, the world’s leading source of financial content, Black Market Exchange rate is economic activity that takes place outside government-supervised channels to avoid taxes and price controls. In its simple way, Black market exchange rates are exchange rates that differ from the officially given exchange rate set by a government.
