Indian Overseas Bank launches electronic bank guarantee scheme
  • The e-BG is a digital instrument issued by the bank to ensure the fulfilment of a specific action/performance by the applicant, and to prevent the occurrence of fraud and manipulation.
  • It is essentially a promise made by the bank to cover losses in the event of loan default by the borrower.
  • Unlike the traditional paper-based bank guarantees that require physical stamping and wet signatures, the e-BG is issued instantly in a paperless mode with digital stamping and digital signature through NeSL’s Digital Document Execution (DDE) platform.
  • This ensures real-time issuance of e-BG, which not only enhances transparency but also reduces the turnaround time from days to minutes.
  • Prior to this launch, HDFC Bank and State Bank of India (SBI) also launched e-BG in association with NeSL.
National E-Governance Services Limited (NeSL):
    • Headquarters – Mumbai, Maharashtra
    • Managing Director & CEO – S. Ramann
