It may be noted that the facility of fax communication on intention to submit the physical bid should not be used to circumvent the time discipline.

6. NDS provides for submission of single or multiple bids. However, members are advised that as far as possible they should submit only one bid. In case of physical submission of multiple bids, separate tender form should be submitted for each bid.

7. The Reverse Repo rate will be fixed by RBI from time to time.

RBI would hold Government Securities delivered by it under Reverse Repo in the RRC SGL Account on behalf of the counter parties during the reverse repo period.

9. For the purpose of Hold-in-Custody Reverse Repos, the tenderers will have to authorise RBI to transfer securities to/from RRC SGL accounts based on their application/bid form. They will also have to authorise RBI to debit/credit their current accounts and for transferring coupon payments during the reverse repo period, if any, to RBI. Accrued interest on the security will be ignored for the pricing of the security. Coupon, if any, will be transferred to the RBI in the case of Reverse Repos.

For instance, in a Reverse Repo auction where bid amount accepted is Rs.420 crore at a rate of 4.75 per cent the calculations of amount of cash outflow in the first leg and amount of cash inflow in the second leg (with interest) will be as under.

Leg 1: Tenderer’s Current Account Dr. Rs. 420 Cr.
