Progressive Finance Ltd., and Reliance Finance Ltd. are the recently added BFIs in the system. Prior to this 27, commercial banks, 8 development banks, and 2 finance companies have already been using the RTGS system. Out of the total BFIs using RTGS, a total of 42 BFIs are connected with the system through connectRTGS, which is an additional platform developed and provided by NCHL to its member BFIs.
High value and urgent transactions above 2 lakh scan now be initiated from these development banks and finance companies on the behalf of their customers or their own institutional transfers.
