Dubai has been a hub for Non-Resident Indians for a long time. Many Indians settled in UAE retain a lot of ties to India, both financial and familial, and to fulfil their obligations back home, they often need to transfer money to India. A DBS Treasures NRE account provides NRIs with a convenient way to send money from Dubai to India.
Sending money to an NRE account is one of the easiest ways to manage your expenses in India - be it investments, family expenses, bill payment, school fees or donations. You can send as much money as many times as you like, without any limits, to an NRE account in India. You can also repatriate the money back to Dubai whenever you wish. There are many quick and easy money transfer options available to credit your NRE account in India.
An NRE account comes with various inward remittance benefits including:
DBS Treasures has waived off any additional service charges on inward remittance, irrespective of the amounts transferred. Here is a summary of the remittance charges.
|International Funds Transfer||Service Charge|

If you have an NRE account, you may choose any transfer option – such as foreign demand drafts, wire transfers or bank-to-bank transfer – available to you. Online remittances are faster because we can credit funds to your account within 24 hours* of receiving instructions.
