Use case for this pilot project

“Settlement of secondary market transactions in government securities is the use case for this pilot project. The interbank market is anticipated to become more productive with the use of e-1-W “In a formal announcement, RBI added.

Additionally, it was stated that settlements made using central bank funds would result in lower transaction costs because no infrastructure for settlement guarantees or collateral to decrease settlement risk would be required.

On the basis of the lessons learned from this pilot, future pilots would concentrate on other wholesale transactions and cross-border payments, it was said.
