Remit2India launch 24/7 credit-card remittance services for NRIs in UAE

UAE-based non-resident Indians (NRIs) can now use their locally issued credit card to transfer money to any bank account in India. The new service launched by Remit2India, a global leader in online cross-border remittances, will allow its user to send money back home using their UAE-cards instantly and at any time of the day.

According to World Bank figures, with inward remittances touching US$ 70 billion in 2013 alone, India is the largest recipient of international remittances and the number one source country for outflows to India is the UAE.

“More than 20% of the total remittance to India last year was from the UAE. Non Resident Indians (NRIs) in this country are always on the lookout for speedy, secure and convenient means to remit money to their loved ones back home and we are delighted to launch this new service which will enable them to transfer money to India, anytime and from anywhere,” said Bhairav Trivedi, Chief Executive Officer, Network International.

Since Remit2India services are 100% online, it saves the customer precious time by eliminating the hassles of visiting an agent’s office and standing in long queues. With no paperwork involved, the online remittance service can be accessed 24/7, any time.

If you are among the not-so-internet-savvy, in case you are stuck or have any problem using the service, do not worry. The service has a 24/7 customer support as well and a real-time transaction alerts to ensure you are informed at all point of time.

“Our aim is to provide the customers with a simple, cost-effective and transparent method of sending money home,” added Avijit Nanda, CEO, TimesofMoney. Remit2India is a service offering from TimesofMoney, majority owned by Network International, a leading payment solutions provider in the Middle East.

To use the service you’ll have to register on and provide the recipient bank account details. A remittance transfer can be made through entering the UAE card details or bank details and the amount to be transferred. Payment processing is powered by Network International, ensuring the security of the transaction and confidentiality of the customer’s details. Remit2India currently offers NRIs across 23 countries and has a delivery network in India spanning 90 banks.
