IndusInd Bank teams up with Viamericas: A game-changer for NRIs’ digital remittances


IndusInd Bank, in its pursuit to serve Non Resident Indians (NRIs) better, has unveiled a strategic partnership with Viamericas Corporation. This collaboration aims to amplify the bank’s digital inward remittance services in the USA via their platform, ‘Indus Fast Remit’. This joint effort promises NRIs competitive exchange rates for digital remittances to India.

Features and Benefits of the New Partnership

Under this partnership, the ‘Indus Fast Remit’ platform is set to empower NRIs to effortlessly book remittance transactions. Not only will this be done through auto debit payment mode (Automated clearing House – ACH), but also by transferring funds via overseas bank accounts. All this while, Viamericas Corporation plans to leverage its pre-existing IndusInd Bank Vostro relationship to directly credit beneficiary accounts in India, adhering to the RDA scheme framed by the RBI.

Customers will gain clear insights into payment request statuses, exact INR amounts that beneficiaries will receive, and the expected time frames for fund delivery. Existing IndusInd Bank customers will further enjoy the ease of initiating payments through the bank’s internet banking platform, eliminating the need for cumbersome paperwork and branch visits.
