The Financial Kaleidoscope - News - September 2016

Depository system is enhanced to facilitate demat account holders to settle their trades in Government Securities on the Negotiated Dealing System–Order Matching (NDS-OM) platform, which is operated by Clearing Corporation of India Ltd (CCIL) on behalf of Reserve Bank of India (RBI).

Accordingly, this facility is made available to demat account holders of bank Depository Participants who are SGL Account Holders and direct members of NDS-OM and CCIL. With this, retail individual investors holding Demat Accounts with Bank DPs of NSDL will be able to purchase or sell government securities through the NDS-OM system. So far, access for trading in secondary market on NDS-OM was limited to only those maintaining SGL/CSGL accounts. These new guidelines will now facilitate efficient access for retail investors holding demat accounts to the government securities market and encourage retail participation. To make it easier for retail investors to trade, NSDL has also integrated NDS-OM web module with its e-services facility. It allows the Bank DPs to make available web trading facility to investors so that investors can directly trade online in government securities using the web module of NDS-OM and their existing NSDL demat account.
