Real Time Gross Settlement System
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has announced that Real Time Gross Settlement System (RTGS) will be made available round-the-clock from December 2020.
Currently, RTGS is available for customers from 7.00 am to 6.00 pm on all working days of a week, except second and fourth Saturdays of every month.
RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das, in its October Monetary Policy announcements, had announced that the RTGS facility will be implemented round-the-clock on all days of the year.
“With this, India will be one of the very few countries globally with a 24x7x365 large value real-time payment system,” Das had said.
Real-Time Gross Settlement is a popular high-value fund transfer mode. The minimum amount that one can transfer through RTGS is Rs 2 lakh.
