Transfer money from India to Switzerland

Dear all

Can someone please shed light into what is the best way to transfer INR to CHF. I see transferwise does not let you, neither do revolut. I see Western Union does but would like to see more tested options, esp if someone has done lot of research.

I am talking about both small and big sums..

thank you

Best option may be SBI. Get the MM rate from Transferwise and see what you get from SBI and negotiate to get as close as possible?
