“The Cheque Truncation System (CTS) is a joint project of the Bank of Mauritius and the Mauritius Bankers Association (MBA), and is part of the strategic vision of modernising the national payment system. The new system eliminates the time-consuming method of manually moving checks to the Port Louis Automated Clearing House from banks around the country. It allows for a major reduction in float time and quicker availability of funds.”
“Cheques are currently Mauritius’ most noticeable and important mode of payment, with an average of 21,000 cheques cleared daily for nearly a billion rupees (33MUSD). Customers will invariably benefit from the CTS because the float time for cheque clearance, which currently varies from two to five working days, will be shortened to one to two working days. Other expected benefits include I faster clearance times between various bank branches; (ii) increased banking sector productivity leading to better customer service; (iii) improved efficiency in the processing of checks and funds transmission; and (iv) enhanced protection and finality on the transfer of value through payment systems.”

“I believe we are in a process where everyone is thinking about CBDCs, and we are all really interested in implementing CBDCs, but there are some important fundamental questions that need to be answered first,” Seegolam said. “These aren’t roadblocks; they’re just questions to which we need answers in order to make things function more efficiently.”
