All about NACH (National Automated Clearing House)

Recently NACH was made compulsory for your any payment, which is recurring in nature instead of a current ECS mandate. This applies to your SIP of Mutual Funds, Utility Bills, Insurance Premiums, Credit Card Bills, or any payment, which you feel recurring in nature.

From 1st May, 2016 you have to use this facility to give auto instruction of debit from your bank account. ECS mandate will go off completely for banks, which are live on NACH. Hence, first let us understand what is NACH (National Automated Clearing House). Refer this NPCI circular for the same.

National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) created this wonderful video of understanding this facility in a simple way.

I tried to explain the same from this below image.

NACH (National Automated Clearing House)

You notice that here customer means you. NPCI (National Payments Corporation of India) is an organization, which meant to consolidate and integrate the multiple systems with varying service levels into nationwide uniform and standard business process for all retail payment systems. The other objective was to facilitate an affordable payment mechanism to benefit the common man across the country and help financial inclusion.

What is the difference between the ECS and NACH?

# In case of ECS, the process is manual. Hence, takes more time or verification issues. However, in NACH it is defined workflow, which reduces the time.

# In case of ECS, you will not get a unique mandate registration reference number. However, in NACH you get it and can be used for future reference.

# In case of ECS, the possibility of higher rejection ratio. But due to less paperwork in NACH, rejection ratio is less.

# Settlement of payment, usually takes 3-4 days in ECS. But in case of NACH it will be settled on the same day.

# There is no such dispute management system placed in ECS. However, in NACH it is well set and can be resolved issues easily.

# Registration of ECS usually takes around 30 days. But in NACH it is just 15 days.

Who are the participating banks?

These are the live banks for which NACH is mandatory to adopt from 1st May, 2016. All core banking enabled banks are soon going to be part of this facility. Currently, all major banks are part of this NACH.

Few other features of NACH facility are as below.

  • Your NACH may get rejected due to an incorrect bank account, folio number or other incorrect details. It also gets rejected if the investor’s bank is not participating in NACH.
  • You can stop NACH at any point of time by submitting the cancellation form.
  • The default NACH mandate will be up to 31/12/2099.
  • You can mention the frequency, amount and the date of last debit.  Also, can alter it at any point.
  • You can register as many NACH as possible. There is no such limit.

How typical NACH application form looks?

Below is the same NACH application form which from 1st May, 2016 will be applicable to all your ECS transactions.

Sample NACH Form

Hope I cleared doubts regarding NACH mandate, which will soon replacing ECS.

      I am not sure what you are pointing with respect to Rs.5,500. But I think it is your EMI. Expiry date means the said NACH is for a year.

    I placed a complaint with LIC and i got a reference no. I had sent several mails to my bank and LIC. recently i got a msg from LIC giving some UMRN no. and asked canara bank to check the status. Now i am requesting my bank. They are telling there is no information for them.

    Also,Is the Loan account name permitted to be different from the debiting account name ?

    On 7th you asked me as to why I need the NACH form and immediately I replied that I need it for payment of BSNL bills. But till date there is no news from you. Since it is mandatory from 01.05.2016, I am unable to trace the link in Google. There are many links pertaining to Mutual Funds by various respective AMCs.

    Please help me out as my banker says that you have to bring a hard copy of NACH to proceed further. Trust you will do the needful.

  100. Very lucid article, Basavaraj but I do have a couple of queries to ask:

    1) What happens to the existing ECS Mandates? Effective 1/5/16, will banks refuse to honor the debit ECS transactions, be it for utility bill payments or Loan EMIs?

    2) Will there be any written intimation given by the banks to their customers who have executed Debit ECS mandates of the proposed change in process? Ideally they should.

    3) Which are the banks which are presently LIVE on NACH and at what intervals is the list updated for incremental banks coming into the fold? Where would this data be available?

    Regards.

    Reply
    • Manoj-1) They will continue as usual. But fresh registration will be stopped.
      2) As I said, existing ECS will continue as usual. Fresh ECS will not be accepted.
      3) I think around 900+ major banks and co-operative banks already LIVE. So you no need to worry.
