E-Kuber is a ‘core banking solution’ platform of the Reserve Bank of India. It is a payment system launched by the Reserve Bank of India with the goal of replacing traditional methods of government payments and others. Banks can use E-Kuber to connect their single current accounts across the country.

E-Kuber Payment System

Government securities, or G-secs, are also issued through RBI auctions on E-Kuber. G-secs are the instruments used by the government to borrow money. E-Kuber is a payment solution that seeks to provide an integrated system via which all payments are distributed to recipients without delay.

  • It follows an entirely automated procedure. It is capable of processing 50,000 transactions at once.
  • However, financial transactions involving government accounts would no longer require the use of a bank as an intermediary and will be handled directly by the Reserve Bank of India.
  • It aspires to replace the government’s existing payment system, which includes employee salaries as well as pensions for retirees.
