If you’ve relocated from India to forge a new life abroad, you’re actually part of the largest diaspora on Earth. That’s according to recent research released by the United Nations, which shows that over 18 million people from India now live and work in countries across the world. Unsurprisingly, this vast population of Indians abroad is also responsible for the world’s biggest annual flow of international money transfers.
