April 01, 2024: Settlement Holiday Alert!

In this article, we will discuss:


As part of our commitment to keep our clients informed and compliant with the latest regulatory guidelines, we're highlighting the implications of the upcoming settlement holiday on April 1, 2024, due to the Annual Bank Closing. Understanding the changes in settlement schedules is crucial for managing your trades effectively and avoiding unnecessary risks.

Settlement Holiday Impact

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has designated April 1, 2024, as a settlement holiday to facilitate the annual closing of bank accounts. This decision affects various trading and settlement processes, necessitating adjustments to our standard operating procedures.

Rescheduled Settlements

To accommodate the holiday, multiple settlements have been strategically rescheduled to April 2, 2024. This adjustment ensures the continuity of trading activities while aligning with the banking sector's operational hiatus.

Critical Trading Advisory

Traders should exercise caution around this period, especially concerning trades executed on March 28, 2024. It is advised not to sell shares acquired on March 28, 2024, on April 1, 2024. This is because trades executed on these specific dates will concurrently settle on April 2, 2024. Ignoring this guidance could result in unforeseen losses, especially from auctions, due to potential delays in clearance, causing short deliveries.

Circular Reference

For those seeking detailed information, the official circular from the National Stock Exchange of India Ltd (NSE) can be found here: Circular Ref. No: 067/2024. This document provides comprehensive guidelines and clarifications pertaining to the settlement holiday.

Special Note on NFO, CDS, CASH, and MCX

It's important to note that all uncleared balances from Friday will be settled on Tuesday, given the clearing holiday on Monday. This includes transactions across NFO, CDS, CASH, and MCX segments. Clients are advised to manage their positions and financial obligations accordingly to avoid potential disruptions.
