Indians are now permitted to receive up to INR10 lakh (US$1 million) annually instead of the previous limit of INR 1 lakh (US$100,000) from relatives who live overseas without alerting the authorities due to changes made by the Union Home Ministry to certain provisions relating to the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA).

The Home Ministry also added in a statement that instead of 30 days, the people would now have 90 days to notify the government if the money they want to send surpasses that amount.
