In a bid to boost digital fund transfer systems, the Reserve Bank on Thursday said that it will remove charges levied on transactions conducted through Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) and National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT).

The NEFT system provides for batch settlements at hourly intervals, while RTGS transfers funds from one bank to another on a “real time” and on “gross” basis. Introduced in 2004, RTGS settles all inter-bank payments and customer transactions above Rs 2 lakh.


Both are popular financial transaction systems. Currently, banks charge between Rs 30-55 on RTGS and Rs 2-25 on NEFT fund transfer.

Announcing the plan on the sidelines of the second monetary policy decision, RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das said: “In the area of payment and settlement systems, it has been decided to do away with the charges levied by the Reserve Bank for transactions processed in the RTGS and NEFT systems in order to provide an impetus to digital funds movement.”

“Banks will be required, in turn, to pass these benefits to their customers. Instructions to banks in this regard will be issued within a week.”
