PNB India to Everest Bank Nepal.

Let’s not waste our time on any complex method and start with the best one. The best way to send money from India to Nepal is by sending it via PNB India.

It may be possible that the employees at small branch might not be familiar with this service. Aware them with proper respect. So, once you deposit this amount, the intended recipient can only receive it if he/she has account in EBL in Nepal.

Since PNB has got a well designed system, so you have nothing to do with EBL in Nepal. Your task only lies within the PNB Bank. For example, if you want to send some money say 10,000 INR, then just go to PNB branch, either small or big, and deposit this money in aforementioned account number.

While depositing the money, just tell the PNB guys that this money must be sent to account no. XXX…. and account holder XXX…. (variables in both cases must be replaced by intended recipient’s EBL bank account number and name).

After doing so, rest work is of PNB Bank. Your money will get deposited to EBL’s current account 2254002100011923. Then, from there, it will be sent to intended recipient’s EBL account.

In this way, your money will get transferred from India to Nepal with minimal efforts from you. The intended recipient will get money in maximum of 4-5 days, but keep in mind that in case of big amount, transfer may take longer time.

SBI India to SBI Nepal

Another way of sending money from India to Nepal is through SBI India to SBI Nepal. You can send money from any NEFT-enabled branch in India. If you have an account in branch of SBI India, then the task is very simple for you, as you need not to carry any documents with you. But, if you don’t have account in bank branch in India, then you will have to carry the documents for proof of identification.

You also need to provide the beneficiary’s complete address of Nepal along with telephone/mobile number. Even the receiver don’t need to have account in Nepal SBI, as in this case, money is handed over to him/her in cash through authorised money transfer company (Prabhu Money Transfer).

Use PNB ATM in Everest Bank Ltd. (EBL)

Send ATM card of PNB to intended recipient in any way such as courier, personally etc. The PNB ATM can be used in EBL’s ATM network in Nepal. You will be charged Rs. 50 by PNB for withdrawing cash using your PNB ATM in EBL’s ATM network. The charge for balance enquiry is Rs. 15.
