(2) Alerts for pay-in related instructions (from Client to Clearing Member Pool account) remaining in overdue status due to insuffi cient balance

After the introduction of partial settlement of pay-in instructions from client account to the Clearing Member (CM) Pool Account, the instructions to debit the account of the client where there are insuffi cient balances will remain in Overdue status and will be carried forward till the pay-in deadline for execution. For such instructions which remain in Overdue status, SMS will be sent to the client about the instruction remaining in Overdue status. For those instructions which get executed (either fully or partially) at pay-in deadline, an SMS in the regular course for debiting the account of the client will be sent.

The text of SMS alerts for instruction remaining in overdue status due to insuffi cient balance after the execution date is as follows:
