If you had opened an NRE account which can only be opened after one becomes a non resident under FEMA, you could have remitted the money in that account. Money lying in NRE account can be repatriated back without any limit. You could also have invested in India through that NRE account and remit back the full money realized on sale of such investments.
Worst customer service ever. Initiated transaction through debit card 1 week back with guaranteed delivery within 20 mins time, and it has been a week. However, the amount has still not been deposited into the beneficiary account. Have been discussing this with customer agents, but no one is responsively responding to the issue. Would not recommend this service to any person who is looking for authenticated foreign amount transfer service.
