When is it the best time to convert?

The best time to send money to your loved ones in India is when the SGD is at its strongest so that you can get more Indian rupees for your funds. If you are considering repatriation back to your account in Singapore, then a time when INR is at its strongest is more favourable. You can track the rates at least one month before conversion to ensure that you get the best rates.
