What is RTGS?
RTGS stands for Real-Time Gross Settlement. It’s a real-time settlement of the fund on an individual basis and funds will be transferred immediately as soon as requested by someone. It’s a non-revertable process and all data are recorded by the RBI so it must be done carefully.
RTGS facility is offered by all RTGS enabled banks in India and there are a set of rules associated with this type of transaction which is described below. It is also possible that some branches don’t provide this facility so please confirm with your branch.
As RTGS is a real-time settlement process so beneficiary Bank must transfer the received money in the Beneficiary’s account within 30 minutes after receiving the RTGS request.
This type of transfer is applicable only for a high amount. As per the RBI regulations, a minimum of 2,00,000/- Rs can be transferred through an RTGS transaction and there is no maximum limit for this transaction. However, Banks may put a limit on the maximum amount that can be transferred.
