Commenting on the offering Mr. Pralay Mondal, Senior Group President, Retail and Business Banking, said, "While augmenting our focus on YES BANK's Global Indian Banking (NRI business), we realized that seamless online money transfer back home was one of the biggest challenge for NRIs. YES Remit will now enable NRIs to transfer money back to India within the comfort of their home or office while enjoying an superior exchange rate and NIL transaction charges. TimesofMoney is a pioneer in this space and through our association we will strive to offer a superior and seamless Remittance facility to NRIs."
