RTGS system info

The acronym “RTGS” stands for Real Time Gross Settlement. RTGS system is a
funds transfer mechanism where transfer of money takes place from one bank to
another on a “real time” and on “gross” basis. This is the fastest possible money
transfer system through the banking channel. Settlement in “real time” means
payment transaction is not subjected to any waiting period. The transactions are
settled as soon as they are processed. “Gross settlement” means the transaction is
settled on one to one basis without bunching with any other transaction. Considering
that money transfer takes place in the books of the Reserve Bank of India, the
payment is taken as final and irrevocable.
The RTGS system is primarily for large value transactions. The minimum amount to
be remitted through RTGS is Rs.1 lakh. There is no upper ceiling for RTGS
transactions. No minimum or maximum stipulation has been fixed for EFT and NEFT
