Steady increase in forex for Indians
July, 15th 2009

More than US $2 billion worth of foreign exchange went out of the country as remittance towards tuition fees and other expenses by Indian students in 2008-09.

In fact, there has been a more than 100% increase in remittance since 2006-07 when it stood at US $1.1 billion.

In a written reply in Rajya Sabha on Tuesday, minister of state for finance Namo Narain Meena said that as on March 31, there are 81,690 Indians in Australia holding student visa.

Meena said as per the partially revised figure $2.247 billion went out as remittance towards education related payments in 2008-09. He clarified that a country-wise break-up of forex outflow in terms of overseas students' tuition fees and expenses is not maintained.

As per the provisional figure for 2007-08, $2.827 billion went out as remittance towards tuition fee and other expenses. There has been a steady increase in forex outflow on account of education since 2004-05 when it was $642 million. The next year in 2005-06 it doubled to $1.11 billion.

Meena said remittance towards tuition fees is a current account transaction and RBI has delegated the powers to authorised dealers to allow remittances towards tuition fees without its prior approval.
