Product Amount


4. Wire transfers from your foreign bank account:

a. In the remittance form, kindly select the option where the remitter (yourself) will pay the transaction fee and not the beneficiary (CHAYA)

b. Once the payment is made online, kindly email chayatanjore@gmail.com with the Authenticated "Swift MT 199". This will give us the exact date / time and amount remitted into the account after all charges and will help us keep track of the same
c. Just for your kind reference and information, kindly note the 4 step process that is usually followed for all foreign transactions:
Customer pays through online banking (in forex/INR) ---> Money goes to an Intermediary bank in customer country (here some commission is taken) ---> Money goes to an  Intermediary Bank in India (here also some commission is taken) ----> Amount gets credited into CHAYA HDFC Account.  Generally, the commission It comes to around 4%-5% of the transaction amount. Please note it takes upto 3-4 working days for the amount to get credited into our account. Sat/ Sun and Public holidays in either country will not count as a working day. 
5.. Easy wire transfer option from HDFC Bank

NRI customers, you can also use the quick remit option with HDFC Bank. http://www.hdfcbank.com/nri_banking/home.htm

This has been useful for our repeat customers as well as it is only a one time verification process and thereafter an easy process. Please kindly note that HDFC will take 3 working days to do the one-time verification of your account before you can remit funds.This is a good option as both parties can keep track of the same and the Indian intermediary bank (step 3 of the previous point) is eliminated. The funds come directly into the CHAYA HDFC account. The amount will take 2 working days to get credited into our account.
