  33. 33. Clearing Procedure  Bank Clearing house: The clearing house is a voluntary association of banks under the management of a bank where the settlement accounts are maintained. Wherever Reserve Bank of India has its office (and a banking department), the clearing house is managed by it. In the absence of an office of the Reserve Bank, the clearing house is managed by the State Bank of India, its associate banks and in a few cases by public sector banks.  In India there are about 1050 cheques clearing houses. These clearing houses clear and settle transactions relating to various types of paper based instruments like cheques, drafts, payment orders, interest / dividend warrants, etc.
  34. 34. Clearing Process The clearing process begins with the deposit of a cheque/other clearing instruments referred above in a bank. The bank arranges the cheques submitted to it for clearing bank wise and presents it in the clearing house to other banks. When there are more than one bank branch for a bank in the clearing area, they would have a coordinating branch/ service branch to take care of presenting the cheques to the clearing house. Upon receipt of the cheques/other instruments, they are passed for payment if the funds are available and the banker is satisfied about the genuineness of the instrument. The cheques that are unpaid are returned to the presenting bank through another clearing called the Return Clearing. The realization of the funds occurs after the completion of return clearing and by the absence of an unpaid cheque
  35. 35. Settlement of Funds: The settlement of funds in clearing occurs at several levels. The aggregate amount or value of cheques presented by a bank on other banks represents the claim by that bank on other banks. Similar claims are made by all the banks on every other bank in the clearing. A net settlement is arrived at the clearing house and the debit or credit position of the bank is determined. These are booked in their current accounts maintained by the settling bank. This represents the inter- bank settlement. The settlement of funds between the service branch and the branch concerned represents the transfer of funds to the branch level. The payment process is completed only when the funds are debited from the drawer’s account and credited to the payee’s account. This occurs after the completion of the return clearing mentioned earlier
  36. 36. Modern technology in banking  Information technology is one of the most important facilitators for the transformation of the Indian banking industry in terms of its transactions processing as well as for various other internal systems and processes.The various technological platforms used by banks for the conduct of their day to day operations, their manner of reporting and the way in which interbank transactions and clea  The process of computerisation marked the beginning of all technological initiatives in the banking industry. Computerisation of bank branches had started with installation of simple computers to automate the functioning of branches, especially at high traffic branches. Thereafter, Total Branch Automation was in use, which did not involve bank level branch networking, ring is affected has evolved substantially over the years.
  37. 37. Core banking Networking of branches are now undertaken to ensure better customer service. Core Banking Solutions (CBS) is the networking of the branches of a bank, so as to enable the customers to operate their accounts from any bank branch, regardless of which branch he opened the account with. The networking of branches under CBS enables centralized data management and aids in the implementation of internet and mobile banking. Besides, CBS helps in bringing the complete operations of banks under a single technological platform. CBS implementation in the Indian banking industry is still underway. The vast geographical spread of the branches in the country is the primary reason for the inability of banks to attain complete CBS implementation.
  38. 38. ATM  ATMs were introduced to the Indian banking industry in the early 1990s initiated by foreign banks. Most foreign banks and some private sector players suffered from a serious handicap at that time- lack of a strong branch network. ATM technology was used as a means to partially overcome this handicap by reaching out to the customers at a lower initial and transaction costs and offering hassle free services. Since then, innovations in ATM technology have come a long way and customer receptiveness has also increased manifold. Public sector banks have also now entered the race for expansion of ATM networks. Development of ATM networks is not only leveraged for lowering the transaction costs, but also as an effective marketing channel resource.
  39. 39. Electronic fund transfer system There are various types of electronic clearing systems functioning in the retail payments area in the country. Some of them are ECS, NEFT etc. Electronic Clearing Service (ECS) is a retail payment system that can be used to make bulk payments / receipts of a similar nature especially where each individual payment is of a repetitive nature and of relatively smaller amount. This facility is meant for companies and government departments to make/receive large volumes of payments rather than for funds transfers by individuals. The ECS facility is available in 47 centers across India operated by RBI at places where it manages the clearing houses and by SBI and its associates in other centers. The ECS is further divided into two types – ECS (Credit) to make bulk payments to individuals/vendors and ECS (Debit) to receive bulk utility payments from individuals
  40. 40. National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) system:- is a nationwide funds transfer system to facilitate transfer of funds from any bank branch to any other bank branch. This is typically for individual / single payments. The system uses the concept of centralized accounting system and the bank’s account that is sending or receiving the funds transfer instructions, gets operated at one center, viz. Mumbai only. The individual branches participating in NEFT could be located anywhere across the country. The beneficiary gets the credit on the same Day or the next Day depending on the time of settlement. NEFT operates on a deferred net settlement (DNS) basis which settles transactions in batches. Presently it is settled in six batches the last one being 1600 hrs. on a weekday and 3 batches with the last one being 1200hrs on a Saturday. To participate in NEFT the participating banks branch needs to have IFSC code Indian Financial System Code (IFSC) is an alpha numeric code designed to uniquely identify the bank-branches in India. This is 11 digit code with first 4 characters representing the banks code, the next character reserved as control character (Presently 0 appears in the fifth position) and remaining 6 characters to identify the branch. The MICR code has 9 digits to identify the bank-branch.
  41. 41. Real Time Gross Settlement(RTGS) It is a large value funds transfer system whereby financial intermediaries can settle interbank transfers for their own account as well as for their customers on a “real time” and on “gross” basis. The system effects final settlement of interbank funds transfers on a continuous, transaction- by-transaction basis throughout the processing day(RTGS business hours). The RTGS system is primarily for large value transactions. The minimum amount to be remitted through RTGS is Rs.1 lakh. There is no upper ceiling for RTGS transactions. On a typical day, RTGS handles about 14000 transactions a day for an approximate value of Rs.1,50,000 crore While RTGS remittance would be credited to a beneficiary’s account by maximum time lag of two hours, NEFT transaction depending on the timing of the transfer will be transferred the same day or the next day and in both the cases when the transfer has not happened the money would be returned to payer’s account
  42. 42. Internet Banking Internet banking in India began taking roots only from the early 2000s. Internet banking services are offered in three levels. The first level is of a bank’s informational website, wherein only queries are handled; the second level includes Simple Transactional Websites, which enables customers to give instructions, online applications and balance enquiries. Under Simple Transactional Websites, no fund based transactions are allowed to be conducted. Internet banking in India has reached level three, offering Fully Transactional Websites, which allow for fund transfers and various value added services. Internet banking poses high operational, security and legal risks. This has restrained the development of internet banking in India. The guidelines governing internet banking operations in India covers a number of technological, security related and legal issues to be addressed in relation to internet banking. According to the earlier guidelines, all internet banking services had to be denominated in local currency, but now, even foreign exchange services, for the permitted underlying transactions, can be offered through internet banking.
  43. 43. Phone Banking and Mobile Banking Phone and mobile banking are a fairly recent phenomenon for the Indian banking industry. There exist operative guidelines and restrictions on the type and quantum of transactions that can be undertaken via this route. Phone banking channels function through an Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS) or tele-banking executives of the banks. The transactions are limited to balance enquiries, transaction enquiries, stop payment instructions on cheques and funds transfers of small amounts (per transaction limit of Rs 2500, overall cap of Rs 5000 per day per customer). According to the draft guidelines on mobile banking, only banks which are licensed and supervised in India and have a physical presence in India re allowed to offer mobile banking services. Besides, only rupee based services can be offered. Mobile banking services are to be restricted to bank account and credit card account holders which are KYC and AMC compliant.
