A large number of Indians migrate to Australia in search of an opportunity to study and pursue a career. Many stay on and become NRIs but retain close personal, emotional and financial ties with India. To meet commitments in their native country, NRIs often have to transfer money from Australia to India.

DBS Treasures offers the diaspora an easy way to manage their finances in India through an NRE account. NRIs can remit their foreign exchange earnings easily and quickly to the NRE account and then use the funds to pay for their financial commitments in India.
