What type of Indian bank accounts can you send money to?

Indian regulations mean that we cannot process transfers to charitable foundations, religious organisations or trusts of any kind.

You’ll be told if your transfer amount exceeds the limit when you enter it into our calculator.
  • Airtime Top-Up – You’ll be presented with a range of top-up amounts for that operator when you enter a valid mobile phone number. Pay for the top-up online and the mobile recharge will be made within minutes.
