Xoom Corporation, a leading digital money transfer provider, today announced a partnership with HDFC Bank Limited, by offering instant deposits to INR denominated HDFC Bank accounts in India.

This breakthrough service allows Xoom customers to instantly deposit money directly into their recipients' HDFC Bank accounts in India. The instant service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year--even on banking holidays.

"Unlike other transfer services to India which typically take five days or more, Xoom is relentlessly working towards providing 'instant' for all of our services, and we are excited to launch instant deposits to HDFC Bank," said Julian King, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Development for Xoom. "This is great news for people who send money to HDFC Bank accounts. Now NRIs can send money anytime, anywhere from their computer, mobile phone or tablet and their bank deposits reach their recipients' HDFC Bank account instantly."

"At HDFC Bank, we are consistently looking at new ways in which we can make a difference in the lives of our customers. Through this tie-up with Xoom we will be able to provide this breakthrough service of instant deposits," says Mr. Rajender Sehgal, Group Head, Financial Institutions Group, HDFC Bank. "We look forward to bringing a whole new world of convenience and flexibility to our account holders, allowing them to receive money from the US in a secure manner, at any time of the day or night.

Xoom provides great locked-in exchange rates for money transfers to India, and there is no fee when customers send more than $1,000 and pay with their U.S.-based bank account. Plus, Xoom continues to provide fast bank deposits within four hours to all other banks in India, including to NRE and NRO accounts, when sent during bank processing hours in India. Customers can also download the Xoom App for Android and iOS mobile devices for free.
