The Process 

Sender goes to Western Union Agent and fills up the Green Colour "To Send Money" form pays principal amount and service charges. The sender gets a money transfer control number (MTCN) on a receipt after the transaction is sent through the system. Thereafter, the sender calls up the payee and gives information on the money sent. The Payee / Receiver goes to the Post Office and fills up the Yellow Colour "To Receive Money" form, shows valid identification such as Passport, voter identity Card, Driving License or a Post office identity card and receives money along with the receipt, once the transaction is verified. In case, a customer desires to have the payment by cheque, the Postmaster may arrange to provide the same by an account payee crossed cheque. The entire process would not take more than 10 minutes.
