Mechanism of NEFT settlements through an illustration can be better understood. Suppose Dept A wants to transfer Salary / pension from the consolidated account  of the department held with the bank XYZ to the pensioners who have an account with Bank PQR . Here is how the NEFT settlement process works.

Step 1: Initiation

Dept A  initiated the NEFT transfer through  XYZ Bank’s Net Banking platform .   The Dept will provide the necessary information, including the transfer amount, the beneficiary’s bank name (in this case – PQR Bank), branch name, account number, the Indian Financial System Code (IFSC code) of the PQR  Bank branch and the beneficiary’s contact number.

Step 2: Batch Processing

NEFT settlements take place in half-hourly batches throughout the day. Once you have initiated the transaction, it takes up to 30 minutes for your transaction to be included in the next available batch based on the time you initiated the transfer.

Step 3: Batch Submission

XYZ Bank submits the batch containing the NEFT transaction to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). The batch also comprises multiple transactions from different customers.

Step 4: RBI Processing

The RBI receives the batch from XYZ Bank and processes it after verifying the submitted details of each transaction, including the beneficiary’s bank and account information. It then transfers the funds from the XYZ Bank account to the PQR Bank accounts of all the beneficiaries.

Step 5: Confirmation

Once the fund transfer is successfully completed, the sender and beneficiary receive a confirmation notification from their respective banks stating that the funds have been transferred.
