try

Code:
$ awk -F "'" '/^:4488:/{F=1} /^-\}/{F=0} F{gsub(/[{},]/,"");gsub(FS,"")}1 ! F{print}' file

Hello,

An another approach.

Code:
awk -vs1="{" -vs2="'" '{sub(s1,X); sub(s2,Y)}1' file_name

Output will be as follows.

Code:
:2020:WITCH13288008772
:4488:20131015INR250000,03
:5500:00000060020001752
Mr. Chintan
Add1
.     Add2
:5518:WITC0000822
-}


Thanks,
R. Singh

try also:
Code:
awk '/^:4488:/,/^[-]}/ {if ($0 !~ /^[-]}$/) gsub(/[\x27{}]/,"")} 1' input

A sed one:
Code:
sed "/^:4488:/,/^-}/ {s/[{}']//g;/^-/s/$/}/;}" file

(although it would be much simpler, but for that final }!

just a quick observation...

Did you still need the...
Code:
}

...at the end, or...
Code:
-}

...or is this a clerical error on your part...

Another sed alternative:
Code:
sed -e '/^:4488:/,/^-}/!b' -e '//b' -e "s/[{}']//g"
