RTGS/NEFT (Inward And Outward Facility :
What is (RTGS) System?
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 irrecoverable.

What is NEFT System ?
National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) system is a nation wide funds transfer system to facilitate transfer of funds from any bank branch to any other bank branch.

How RTGS is different from National Electronics Funds Transfer System (NEFT) ?
NEFT is also an electronic fund transfer system that operate on a deferred net settlement (DNS) basis, which settles transactions in batches. In DNS, the settlement takes place at a particular point of time. All transactions are held up till that time. For example, NEFT settlement takes place 6 times a day during week days (9.30 am, 10.30 am, 12.00 noon, 1.00 PM, 3.00 PM and 4.00 PM.) and 3 times during Saturdays (9.30 am, 10.30 am and 12.00 noon). Any transaction initiated after a designated settlement time would have to wait till the next designated settlement time. Contrary to this, in RTGS, transactions are processed continuously throughout the RTGS business hours.
