The partnership offers a real time Rupee Remittance Facility, based on using the innovative and automated Axis Remit Direct (ARD). The service allows customers to save on transfer charges and enjoy instant transfers to Axis Bank accounts and within one working day to all other accounts in India.

Customers will also benefit from corporates availing remittance services and their expat staff on account of their salary account with Bank Nizwa. These salary accounts will be funded monthly from the corporates’ current account, thereby giving access to their staff to enjoy a suite of personalized products and services that meets their day-to-day financial needs at highly competitive terms. With the launch of this service, Bank Nizwa is offering an end-to-end solution to both its retail and corporate clients with other value added Shari’a-compliant products and services.

We are delighted to partner with Bank Nizwa, which will further help us expand our reach in the Middle East.”
