All the stock exchanges

Dear Sir/ Madam,

Pursuant to discussion in the meeting of the Group on Risk Management Systems for the Equity Markets which met on December 19, 2001 and with a view to derive benefits of increased efficiency it has been decided to shorten the rolling settlement cycle from the present T+5 to T+3. The compulsory rolling settlement on T+3 basis would commence from April 01, 2002.

The stock exchanges are advised to make the necessary arrangements/ modifications in their systems to implement the rolling settlement on T+3 basis for all listed securities from April 01, 2002.


Yours faithfully
