Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) remitted nearly $79 billion to India in 2018. But even so, most NRIs wonder if they are using the right service provider for sending money to India. Which are the most relibale money transfer companies? Is it safe to use this online money transfer service? How long will it take before the money reaches the destination? Am I getting the best exchange rates for USD to INR? What is the current US dollar to Indian rupee exchange rate or what is the live USD to INR exchange rate? Should I wait for a few days to transfer money to India to get a better rate? Where can I compare the exchange rates by various money transfer companies? What is USD to INR forecast?

Exchange Rates vary by the transaction amount and the method of transfer. The rates and fee shown for sending money to India are for online money transfer of under $1000 from USA.

Experience with NRE accounts- best options??

Hey guys,

It is clear that the only legal way to transfer your $ earnings from US to India and keep it under your name is via an NRE account. I'm hoping some of you are currently holding an NRE a/c in India. Need your experiences for below points.

  1. What are the options that you take to let a person in india do cash transactions from the NRE account ( as far as I know, technically no bank authorizes a person in India to withdraw from your NRE a/c)?
  2. I think you can transfer INR from your NRE a/c to a savings bank a/c in India. is that correct? If so, can you recommend a bank that has lower service charges for these kind of transfers? Its not wise to lose some INR during exchange and again some INR for transfers b/w NRE and savings a/c in India. 

 

     
Reply to your remarks
You should understand that you are earning in dollars. If you earning in dollars why are you worried about paying a dollar or two worth of money? Let's help our democracy by contributing some money in this way. This is my opinion as I am paying happily. Thanks!
     
Experience with NRE account

Hello,

Below are the answers to your questions

1) If you give GPA (Power of Attroney) to your parents / relatives in india on your NRE account they can do any kind of trasaction on their own.

2) Yes you can transfer from NRE to any other savings account. However you can only deposit to your NRE account by remittance of $ amount or other currency. There is another type of account called NRO where deposits are allowed to. HDFC NRE bank charges minimum for your transfer. 

By the way you can deposit directly to the savings account of your relatives by using the above remittance services, however there might be a income tax problem.
