Real-time gross settlement (RTGS) refers to a fund transfer system that enables instant transfer of money and provides securities for funds transferred. RTGS also refers to the continuous process of settling payments on an individual order basis without netting debits and credits across a central bank's books. Furthermore, real-time gross settlement payments are conclusive and irrevocable. In the simplest terms, the transaction settles in the receiving bank as soon as it is transferred from the sending bank. Furthermore, gross settlement means that transactions are handled and settled individually, rather than being bunched or grouped together. This serves as the foundation for a real-time gross settlement system and is expected to boost the real-time gross settlement market in the near future.
