A person who is deciding to send money to his family back home will need to visit a money transfer agent. There they will have to fill a ‘Send money’ form and hand the amount to be sent along with the required service fee to the agent. The sender is provided with a ‘Money Transfer Control Number’ (MTCN), which he has to communicate to the beneficiary. The information is locked into the system which is then connected to various branches. The receiver can go to any of the identified bank branches offering western money transfer service, fill a ‘Receive money’ form and show proper photo identification and the MTCN. The bank pays the money after complete verification.

As per the guidelines provided by the Reserve bank of India, western money transfer service is only available for transfers towards family, relatives and friends and also towards payments supporting foreign tourists to India.
