With more and more people travelling/studying/migrating/seeking medical treatment abroad, there is an ever-increasing need to send money transfer from India. If you are looking for ways to transfer money abroad, here are some important points that will help you:

Ways to transfer money

You can either send money transfer from India through a wire transfer or settle for a demand draft. Though wire transfer is a quick and secure way to remit funds from India it is expensive as compared to a Demand Draft because other than the remittance charges that you pay to the home bank you also have to pay a fee of USD 10 to USD 40 to the foreign bank. This exorbitant fee is not payable in case of demand drafts. However, with demand drafts there can be a time lag of upto 10 days for the recipient to receive the funds.


Money transfer can be done if you need to send money to a close relative settled abroad, pay the college fee of your child or do a business transaction requiring you to send money transfer from India. You may also want to remit funds from India for medical expenses, or if you have taken up a job in a foreign land. The philanthropic Indian may also want to send a donation to an organization abroad through wire transfer from India.


The RBI entitles Indians to remit funds from India (per annum) up to:

  • US$ 100,000 for education
  • US$ 100,000 for a medical patient and US$ 25,000 for any accompanying attendant
  • USD 125,000 as gifts/donations
  • USD 100,000 for maintenance of a close relative abroad
