ICICI Bank first bank in country to tie-up with Australian bank

ICICI Bank first bank in country to tie-up with Australian bank

New Delhi, July 10 (UNI) ICICI Bank, India's largest private sector bank by consolidated assets, on Tuesday announced its partnership with 'Westpac Banking Corporation' (Westpac), one of the top banks in Australia, to offer Indian students a completely online payment solution through its 'Money2World' (M2W) platform for outward remittances.

With this, Indian residents, who are customers of any bank in India, can initiate an online remittance to make fee payments to an Australian university at a fixed exchange rate from the comfort of their homes, any time.



As a first, ICICI Bank and Westpac have partnered with La Trobe University, one of the well-known universities in Australia, for this initiative. ICICI Bank aims to tie up with other universities and colleges in Australia as well.



The transactions carried out by students using the Money2World platform is integrated with Westpac's 'PaymentsPlus', a banking and reconciliation solution for universities and colleges.

This facility significantly enhances convenience for students as it simplifies a lengthy paper-intensive process to a completely paperless and online facility that eliminates multiple visits to a bank branch. It also shortens the fee transfer process to a few days without levying any additional charges. Further, it also empowers the student and the university with a unique reference number which will help them track the payment and its reconciliation.



Speaking on the initiative, ICICI Executive Director Vijay Chandok said, "ICICI Bank is a leading player in the Indian remittance market and we were the first Indian bank to offer a completely online outward remittance solution via our Money2World platform.

Overseas education remittance is nearly a third of the country's overall outward remittance and

Australia is one of the largest recipients. It has been our constant endeavour to simplify student payment solutions by leveraging on technology and global partnerships. We are delighted to partner with Westpac Banking Corporation and La Trobe University to completely digitise fee payments for students and provide them with end-to-end tracking of the transactions."



Commenting on the tie-up, Di Challenor, General Manager, Global Transaction Services, Westpac said, "Universities and colleges have always been very important for Westpac and Australian economy. With this solution, we will be able to provide the university with unimpaired information reconciliation which will save resources, time and money."

'Money2World', is a first-of-its-kind fully online outward remittance service for resident Indians by any bank in India. It is available to users 24x7 on all days. With this, non-account holders of ICICI Bank can also transfer money online from any bank account in India to any bank account overseas in 16 major currencies, in a convenient and fully secure manner.
