What is Cheque Truncation System?
Cheque Truncation System (CTS) is a cheque clearing system undertaken by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for quicker cheque clearance. As the term proposes, truncation is the course of discontinuing the flow of the physical cheque in its way of clearing. Instead of this an electronic image of the cheque is transferred with vital essential data.
Cheque Truncation System brings elegance to the whole activity of cheque processing & clearing and offers numerous benefits to banks like time and cost savings, cost effectiveness, including human resource rationalization, business process re-engineering and enhanced customer service.
Recently RBI had asked banks to create special clearing window for government accounts on 31 March 2018.
