It provides an option of biometric authentication for logging into the mobile app as well as view the status of the transaction.

The new responsive design also offers a coherent experience across multiple devices like desktops, mobiles and tablets. Frequent users of Money2India will be enabled for instant money transfer credit to their recipients in India

NRIs can access their bank accounts, transaction details as well as undertake payments from a single internet banking platform. This gives improved convenience to NRI customers as they are not required to separately login and authenticate themselves to access the Money2India website.

Interestingly, Non Resident Indian customers of all banks, not just ICICI, can use the application to sent funds to India.  New users can initiate a money transfer instantly with the help of a simple one-time registration.
