I work for a friend overseas who want to pay me through SKRILL (MONEYBOOKERS - PAYPAL like service) in USD. I would have my Moneybookers account linked to my Savings Bank Account in a private indian bank. If I transfer US $5000 per month, will my bank investigate about the source of income in details? If yes, what proof I need to provide ?
Any such amount has to be reported by Skrill and the Bank to RBI. As long as your earnings are legitimate and you are paying the taxes you shouldn't be worried. If its for services rendered, you would have a contract and / or invoice ... ie some paper work. It is important to keep the paper work in order.
