Does the word "standing instruction" exist or is it Indianism?
It appears to be a British English phrase if you are referring to this type of regular payment from a bank account as explained by Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standing_order_(banking). In Canada these are called automatic payments.

A similar phrase -- standing order or standing orders -- exists in both American and British English. It is used in military and parliamentary contexts to denote a rule or order held to be in force until specifically changed or withdrawn.
