What about a bank transfer? It should cost about 5 bucks in taxes which is probably what paypal would also charge anyway. Just ask at the Canadian bank about the most cost effective way to send money to India.

you can use money transfer services i.e. western union or go to an ICICI or SBI bank branch in Canada
You could try to find a trusted person, may be common friend, who's traveling from Canada to India.

Or cheaper, unsafe, but sometimes is working: put the bills (only paper currency) in aluminum foil nice packed and then glued in a double page postcard in an envelope and send it normal by post. But there is no proof that you sent the money.
Here is another idea: open 2 new online accounts: one in Canada and one in India for a similar money processor as PayPal, but one that is confirmed that works in India.
The account from India should be connected to a bank account in order to be able to withdrawal the cash.
The one from Canada could be the same or to load it by PayPal.


thanks all very much
