Stock exchanges are set to launch the same-day transaction settlement (or "T+0") beta version for a select few cash segment stocks starting today ( Thursday, March 28). 

The T+0 settlement will occur concurrently with the current T+1 settlement cycle. Presently, the market is considering same-day transaction settlement within a year after fully embracing the T+1 cycle.

Sellers under the present T+1 system may only get 80% of their cash on the day of sale; the remaining 20% must be waited for the following day. Nonetheless, sellers will have instant access to 100% of their cash on the day of transaction due to the new T+0 settlement system.

There will be two stages to the T+0 settlement cycle. Phase 1 deals made up to 1:30 pm will be taken into account for the settlement, which must be finished by 4:30 pm. Trading will begin at 1:30 pm and last until 3:30 pm in the second phase and the first phase will be discontinued.

Subject to recalibration after every 50 basis point change, a price band of -100 basis points from the standard T 1 market price will be in place. Index computation and settlement price computation are unaffected by T 0 pricing.

Prashanth Tapse, Research Analyst, Sr VP Research of Mehta Equities, said that introducing the T+0 settlement would be of great benefit for traders and investors who are looking for immediate liquidity, allowing them to utilise funds and react to the market quickly in the highly volatile sessions. 

"I feel this could be highly beneficial to retailers who come with limited cash into the market, and this would revolutionise the trading landscape for the same small investors. Shortening of the settlement cycle means optimal utilisation of funds to make best-in-time returns to swing traders," added Tapse.

However, there may be some technical limitations and glitches in the early days for all the counterparties due to the high volume of trades. Overall, it is a win-win game for all sets of investors.
