Mumbai: The Reserve Bank of India has decided to extend the usage timings for 'Real Time Gross Settlement' (RTGS) system from June 1. A notification to this effect was issued on Tuesday.

However, the system does not work on a 24-hour basis.
The current RTGS service window for customer transactions is available to banks from 8 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. on a working day, for settlement at the RBI's end.
"It has been decided to extend the timings for customer transactions (initial cut-off) in RTGS from 4.30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
"The time-varying charges for transactions in RTGS from 13:00 hours (1 p.m.) to 18:00 hours (6 p.m.) shall be Rs 5 per outward transaction," it said.
