What is a Rate Block?

Rate block is just one of the unique features you will find in your HiSAVE Remittance Account and it enables you to get more Indian Rupees for your Pounds. Tell us the minimum GBP to INR exchange rate at which you wish to remit money to India and we will ensure your money is transferred only at that exchange rate or at a higher rate. Because exchange rates fluctuate, it means you may get a more favourable GBP to INR conversion.


When you set up a “Rate Block” we will wait until Indian Rupee exchange rates reach your desired level before we carry out your Pound to Indian Rupee conversion and transfer your money to your beneficiary in India.


How do you set up a Rate Block?

Once you have opened your HiSAVE Remittance Account online and you wish to transfer money to India, simply click on the “Fund Transfer to India” and choose the “Rate Block” tab. You will then be able to choose the minimum amount for your preferred Pound to Indian Rupee conversion. Once you have set this up, we will convert your money from GBP to INR on the day, indicated preferred exchange rate has been reached and transfer your money to your chosen bank account in India.


Transferring in Pounds or Rupees

When transferring money to India you can choose whether you would like to give us a transfer instruction in Pounds or Indian Rupees. A GBP (Pounds) instruction will tell us the exact amount to debit from your HiSAVE Remittance Account and the corresponding INR (Indian Rupees) to be transferred. An INR instruction will tell us the exact amount of Indian Rupees to be credited to your beneficiary. For instructions in INR, the amount debited from your HiSAVE Remittance Account will be determined by the INR-GBP rate on the date of transfer, up to five decimal places.
