Today we speak to Remit2India, an international money transfer to India (remittance) service for Indians living abroad. With Remit2India, Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) and Overseas Citizens of India (OCIs) living in the UK, USA, Canada, Ireland and Australia can send money to India online and beneficiaries in India can receive money via account credit.
In our fireside chat with Remit2India, we want to hear more about their money transfer to India service and how Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) and Overseas Citizens of India (OCIs) can benefit from it to send money to India from UK, USA, Canada, Ireland and Australia. Lets see what they say.
1. Remit2India is a very well established brand in the money transfer to India marketplace, you have recently decided to rebrand, can you tell us more?
Remit2India - Remit2India was established in 2001 and is a pioneer in online remittances. NRIs across the world trust us to send money to their loved ones in India. Even though Indians settle overseas in order to chase their dreams and earn success, they are always concerned about keeping their commitments back home. Which is why, the money they send home is like keeping up to their promise. A promise that gives hope and security to their loved ones in India. And, over the last 17 years, millions of NRIs have chosen Remit2India to help them fulfil their promises. Thus we decided to rebrand Remit2India with a trendy and modern look and change the tagline to ‘Promises Come Home’. We have also roped in Virat Kohli, captain of the Indian cricket team to endorse our brand. He is a trusted name and millions of Indians across the world look upto him. We hope that we can establish the same for our brand as well. We have been receiving a great response from our customers across the globe for our new look and our new brand champion, Virat Kohli.
2. What according to you makes Remit2India stand out from the likes of Transferwise or Money2India from ICICI Bank?
Remit2India - We are a global company, but Indian at heart. We are backed by UAE Exchange, which is World No. 2 in money transfer service.

5. How do you think technology is changing the money transfer landscape to benefit customers?
Remit2India – Traditionally, money transfer process used to be quite tedious where customers had to visit their bank, fill complicated forms manually and complete the transaction that used to take days. With the advent of online money transfer to India, customers can now send money sitting at their home, office or anywhere in just a few clicks. Money transfer has now become quite hassle free with the advent of technology. Most of the verification that was earlier done manually, is now being done using technology that has made the process quite fast.
