money to nepal

Hi Santanu,
I dont know re money transfers, but Ive just done EBC for the 2nd time and put a detailed report with costs etc on the Crossing the Border forum. Ram Barakoti who runs an agency is most helpful and could help you with airtickets, tell him I sent you ,he wont need an advance if you dfinitely are going there ( though a bit late,now??) His moble is 9851099172 n landline in Kathmandu is 4701070 let me know if this works, or I'll give you his email id. cheers

You have two alternatives. First, Punjab National Bank has a tie up with Everest Bank Nepal. If your travel agent has an account in any branch of Everest Branch in Nepal, then Punjab National Bank will wire transfer the amount for a small fee. You need not have an account with PNB.
Second, State Bank of India issues Bankers cheques/Bank drafts payable in Nepal so you may go to any SBI branch dealing in Forex and get a Bankers cheque/Bank draft favouring your travel agent and mail it to him in Nepal.
I believe ICICI Bank and Standard Chartered also do wire transfers to Nepal but only if you hold an account with them.

I am in the same situatuion right now but our agent has an account in SBI Nepal. But SBI here told me here that for sending money thru SBI is only possible if you have an account in SBI otherwise not.

I dont know how right they are. So Santanu if you are able to do so via SBI do let the forum no, I will also if i am able to

Deky,
I finally found a travel agent , who's having his offices both in Nepal & Kathmandu & he travels frequently between these two places. He is arranging the tickets for me, so hopefully no need to send money.

Finally I have got my Kathmandu-Lukla round ticket. I have found a Nepal travel agent in Kolkata who arranged the same. The reference was given by ITDC & Nepal consulate in Kolkata.

A special thanks to Austinivor,
For providing me with important information & for inspiring me to travel to my dream destination.
Also Thanks Indiamike
