Bankers Encounter Issues During India’s CBDC Trial Phase

The launch of a test Indian Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) known as the digital rupee pilot wholesale program fails to impress bankers involved in testing this digital currency as issues of interbank settlement and increased workload appear.

Excitement Wanes As E-rupee Trial Poses Issues

Bankers’ excitement and anticipation for the testing stage of this digital rupee pilot wholesale program has begun to wane.

They discovered this currency added more workload to their already existing workload without significantly increasing their benefits.

They claim that the retail and consumer sectors are where the digital rupee is most likely to succeed and benefit the populace.

December marks one month since the start of the E-rupee pilot wholesale program, but bankers don’t seem as excited as they once did about venturing into the world of virtual and digital currencies.

They have also clarified and listed the main difficulties they encountered while testing the digital currency.

They emphasized their discovery of the problem with settlement trading being done in person during the testing phase. This and other difficulties they had with bulk transactions were reportedly increasing the workload of bankers without providing any appreciable benefits. This in no way elevates the digital rupee over the currently in use monetary system.

Customers have also compared the digital rupee to net banking, a system that is already in use and well suited for both bankers and the general public.

Digital Rupee Vs Cash

The digital rupee is a substitute for cash that promotes decentralization, transparency, and anonymity through the use of Blockchain Technology.

Consumers may benefit from these features, but bankers face significant challenges when it comes to interbank settlement using this digital currency.

The digital rupee was specifically intended to be used during this testing phase to test out interbank settlement, but since this posed some difficulties for the banks, it was instead used to purchase government securities.

On November 1st, the pilot wholesale for the e-rupee was launched; however, as the issue of interbank settlement and increased workload came into view, the excitement and anticipation subsided.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) launched the e-rupee pilot wholesale program on December 1st, but this time for the retail sector.

Four banks and cities have been carefully chosen to conduct this phase of the trial.
