My friend from Perth Australia is going to send me money Rs5000/- every month (IRS Five thousand only) to take care of her when she travels to India in couple of months. She requires my help till she will be in India. I have my account in your 01810 Branch in Dibrugarh, Assam. IFSC - 2326431. To get that Rs.5000/- directly in my account what details my friend from Perth Australia needs to give her bank for the transfer of that amount? Please advice me.
