Introduction to the NACH Mandate

In 2005, The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) published a vision document after setting up the Payment & Settlement Scheme Board (BPSS) that proposed the setting up of an umbrella institution for the country's RETAIL PAYMENT SYSTEMS. Throughout the next few years, the Indian Banks' Association (IBA) worked tirelessly to make this vision a reality. As a result, the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) was founded in December 2008 and received its Certificate of Commencement of Business in April 2009. The primary objective was to strengthen and integrate diverse systems of different levels of service into nationally consistent and standard business processes for all retail payment systems. The other goal was to make the average person more inexpensive to pay and help financial inclusion throughout the country.


National Automated Clearing House (NACH) is the result of this initiative. NACH is a centralized electronic payment system created by the NPCI for banks, companies, financial institutions, and the government. It was established to introduce best practices in electronic transactions by the National Payment Corporation of India(NPCI). NACH is an improvement over the Electronic Clearing System (ECS) that required physical documents to be filed leading to longer clearing times. NACH on the other hand is completely paperless and online and has led to a reduction in clearing times from 21 days to just 2 working days.

What is the Need for NACH?

NACH can conduct high-volume electronic transactions that may be periodic or repetitive throughout the country without any geographical constraints. All NACH users, service providers, and participants shall be subject to a single set of regulations. Here's everything you need to know NACH.

  • creating a system with pan-India coverage to handle all electronic payments

  • handling debits, credits, reversals, rejections, and reimbursements with efficiency

  • improving governance by connecting AADHAR to Institution Identification Numbers (IINs) and implementing a mandate management system.
