After NEFT and RTGS, it is Immediate Payment Service (IMPS) that comes to mind. This facility is open 24X7 for anyone holding a bank account. When a fund transfer is initiated by a person using IMPS, the initiator bank sends a message to IMPS, which debits the money and sends it to the receiving account. All this procedure happens within 5 – 10 seconds. However, maximum amount that a person can send through this portal is up to Rs 2 lakh in a day. One of the major benefit of carrying an IMPS transaction, is that it also have less charges compared to NEFT and RTGS. Interestingly, if you are a State Bank of India (SBI) customer, then you must note that your bank has revised charges for IMPS from this year.
