Sending money to India?
Banking regulations in India may require additional information when making a payment.
Please ensure you choose the appropriate purpose of payment to support this requirement. If your payment is relating to a gift or family support, you should ensure you are making a payment to an individual and not a company. Payments to companies may cause delays and requests for further information.
Your payment reference should also relate to the purpose of your payment. If you select 'Gift' as the payment purpose, references could be:
gift for [relative]
gift for [friend]
gift for [occasion]
