Al Ansari Exchange, the UAE-based foreign exchange and worldwide money transfer company, recently signed an agreement with NPCI International Payments Limited (NIPL), the international arm of National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) to offer consumers real-time remittances to India.

Al Ansari Exchange’s customers will soon be able to connect to the Unified Payments Interface (UPI), an instant real-time payment system developed by NPCI and operating at a great scale. This partnership will facilitate real-time cross-border remittance to the beneficiaries in India, making cashless payments faster, easier and simpler, round the clock and 365 days a year.
