4 Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) System Operator Central Bank of Sri Lanka Introduced in September 2003 Electronic and computer based fund transfer and settlement system Currently there are 36 participating institutions (25 LCBs, 8 PDs, EPF, CSE and CBSL) Used for high value and time critical payments and for final settlement of net balances of retail payment clearing systems Transactions are settled on Real Time Gross basis

5 Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) System The RTGS system replaced the Current Account Settlement System, which had been a cheque based end-of-day net settlement system, operated manually by the Central Bank Central Bank maintained current accounts for all commercial banks Banks had to physically deliver cheques to the Central Bank before the cut-off time At the end of the day, Central Bank netted the liabilities of each commercial bank and debited and credited the relevant accounts

6 Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) System Since the transactions are settled on real-time basis in the RTGS system, the risk on non-settling of obligations is minimized. However, participants have to maintain higher balances in their settlement accounts, compared to the previous system. The Central Bank provides interest free, fully collateralized Intraday Liquidity Facility (ILF) to assist participants to meet their liquidity requirements, in order to ensure the smooth functioning of the system

7 Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) System Daily Average Volume of Transactions (in 2013) 1,263 Daily Average Value of Transactions (in 2013) Rs. 223 bn
