Indian rupee exchange rate

How much Indian currency can you send?
The amount you can transfer to India depends on the country you send the money from and the particular service you choose. Every country has its own rules relating to money transfers. For example, if you want to make a money transfer to India from the UK then the limit may not be the same as a US to India airtime top-up.
You can check how much you can send to India by selecting the transfer service you want to use in the blue ‘Send to’ calculator at the top of this page. If the sum you enter exceeds the limit then a pop up will tell you the maximum amount for that service.
