Compare live money transfer rates for sending British pounds / Indian rupees from the UK to India
The World Bank estimates that India receives over £70 billion worth of remittances from other countries each year, making it the top recipient country in the world. Remittances play a significant role in India's economy, both in terms of providing a source of income for many Indian households, and in supporting various sectors such as education, healthcare and real estate.
In recognition, the Indian government has introduced various measures to encourage remittances from overseas, for example by providing special tax and investment schemes for non-resident Indians.
