Money Transfer from Malaysia to India

Apply Now

The NRI community in Malaysia has been growing from strength to strength for years. While many Indians immigrate to Malaysia, they often have families and investments back home. To fulfil their financial commitments, they need to remit money to India regularly. For NRIs, DBS Treasures offers an easy way to send money to India – an NRE account.

At a Glance

Whether you want to send money for high-value transactions (such as buying property) or to facilitate payment of monthly utility bills, you can transfer money to an Indian NRE account using a remittance method of your choice. You can even hold an NRE account jointly (on a former or survivor basis) with a resident Indian relative, who can operate it for you on a power of attorney basis. Many NRIs find this a convenient arrangement.

Inward Remittances

An NRE account comes with various inward remittance benefits including:

  • Preferential Exchange Rates: Enjoy preferential exchange rates if you choose to convert MYR to INR at the time of credit.
  • No Service Charges: We do not charge any additional fee for credits to an NRE account from abroad. Only the Fx conversion fees are levied.
  • One-day Credit: Within 24 hours* of receiving transfer instructions, DBS Treasures will credit the beneficiary NRE account.
