Withdraw from PayPal to Indian Bank Accounts

Great news for Indians who are using PayPal.

Now you can add your Indian bank account to your PayPal account, so you can withdraw your money directly to your bank. It saves you time and gives you faster access to your PayPal funds! Plus, there is no charge to withdrawal amounts over Rs. 7000. For withdrawal amounts of less than INR 7000, there is a nominal fee of 50 rupees.

So, go ahead and add your bank account today!

PayPal Introduced Payments to Indian Debit/Credit Cards

PayPal Introduced New International Withdrawal Functionality using which you can withdraw your PayPal balances to your Debit/Credit Cards.

All you need to do is add a debit/credit card which can accept the funds. Both VISA and MASTERCARD are supported.

Paypal charges $5 for each withdrawal to Credit/Debit Card.

My Experience:

I tried to register three credit cards out of which I succeeded with only one. I don’t know what is the acceptance criteria. It seems it is accepting Platinum/Gold cards only as far as India is concerned. I tried to register a Debit Card but couldn’t succeed in doing it.

Please share your experiences.

Blog Censorship in India

It looks like India is going in the same lines as China putting Censorship on certain blogging sites.

I was not able to browse any of the sites hosted on blogspot for the last 2 days. I came to know the reason after seeing a post on Trivikram’s Blog about sites being blocked in india( giving the reason that some of the terrorist related activists are blogging on those sites.

It will be a good move to block those particular sites rather than blocking the entire domain which hosts lots and lots of constructive information blogs.

As stated in Trivikram’s blog our ISPs are blocking the entire domain.

Access to all blogs and websites hosted on the following servers is currently blocked:

Spectranet, Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL), Reliance Powersurfer, Airtel Broadband and Sify have blocked Blogger.

Let us hope they will remove this restriction as soon as possible.
