How to Send Money Safely to Axis Bank in India in 5 Easy Steps

Sending money to India from another country? You’re in great company. In fact, according to findings published last year by the World Bank, India receives more in international money transfers than any other nation. This makes sense when you factor in that Indians make up the world’s biggest diaspora: around 18 million, according to United Nations data.

Here at Remitly, we believe that your loved ones back home should be able to receive Indian rupees without any fuss, and without undue expense on your part. That’s why we provide a clear fee structure, and a variety of ways for the transfer to be conducted. You can opt to send Indian rupees to a cash pick up point in India, send via UPI, or make the transfer directly to your recipient’s bank account. If they’re with Axis Bank, this guide will tell you everything you need to know about sending money through Remitly.

Send Money to Axis Bank in India in 5 Easy Steps

Sending money to India with Remitly is a simple process. Here are the steps you’ll need to follow if your recipient has an Axis Bank account.
