So my parents have indian currencies around 32k rupees which includes 500 rupees notes and thousand rupees note and they are currently banned in india also there is a deadline to deposit in the bank if you don't then money will not be legal tender.
We have Indian bank in here but they said no so my dads decided to post it to his friends house in order to deposit.

Can anyone tell me what is the best postal service to use and will it caught my customs? http://w4s.in/500-rs-1000-rs-note-banned-india-pm-narendra-modi-says-notes-discontinued/

Why don't they just deposit the funds in their account in India?
#2
can't you convert it to sterling in the UK, put it in your bank then do a bank transfer?

Because they got money in here and to deposit you will need to send it back to india.

Can't you do it via Western Union or convert it? Go to Sainsbury's, M&S and most high st travel companies do it

limit is like around 6/7000 pounds it wouldn't make any difference. how reliable is postal services in India they probably nick the money halfway on route I recon even if u use someone like DHL. what's the deadline I'm sure.u must know someone whos travelling before then
