NEFT Timings for Fund Transfer – How it works

National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT) is a nationwide payment system backed and operated by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). When you initiate an NEFT transfer, DBS Bank sends a message to the NEFT Service Centre. The message gets forwarded to the RBI-operated NEFT Clearing Centre. The NEFT Clearing Centre then sorts the fund transfer and passes it on to the beneficiary bank. After receiving inward remittance messages from the Clearing Centre, the beneficiary bank passes the credit to the beneficiary bank account. All of this takes place in under 30 minutes.

NEFT Payment Timings and Charges

You can initiate funds transfers via the NEFT system 24x7x365. The online NEFT service is available round-the-clock, including on government, national, and bank holidays. Presently, NEFT payments are credited in half-hour interval batches, irrespective of the time or day of the week. The RBI also notifies DBS Bank in case of temporary non-availability of NEFT facilities, and we inform you of the same at the earliest. Per the NEFT-timings set by the RBI, beneficiary accounts are credited within 30 minutes of you initiating the transaction.

At DBS Bank, we do not levy any charges for online NEFT transactions. You may also visit the bank to conduct an offline NEFT transaction by filling the NEFT form. The charges for offline NEFT transactions range from INR 2.50 + GST to INR 25.00 + GST.
