What is a bank transfer?

With WorldRemit, you can send money to bank accounts in India from over 145 countries around the world. Most commonly, our customers send money to Indian bank accounts from the US, the UK, Australia and Canada, but this is only a very small number of the possible routes. 

Bank transfers can be made to any type of account, whether it’s a current, saving or business account, making it a simple and quick way to support family and friends or pay suppliers, school fees or other bills.

Not only is a bank transfer to India quick, with transfers usually made on the same day, but it’s also a safe and secure way of getting funds to those who need them. You can send money to an Indian account using any device and you will receive bank-beating exchange rates and low fees.

Transferring money to an Indian bank account is easy. All you need to do is:

  1. Select the ‘Bank Deposit’ service in the ‘Send to’ box on our website or app
  2. Enter the amount you want to send
  3. You’ll be shown the exchange rate you’ll receive and the small fee that applies
  4. Enter the bank account details of the person you’re sending the money to (we need your recipient’s bank name, branch name, IFSC/ branch code and account number
