The National Securities Clearing Corporation Ltd. (NSCCL), a wholly owned
subsidiary of NSE, was incorporated in August 1995. It was the first clearing
corporation to be established in the country and also the first clearing
corporation in the country to introduce settlement guarantee.
It was set up with the following objectives:
- to bring and sustain confidence in clearing and settlement of securities;
- to promote and maintain, short and consistent settlement cycles;
- to provide counter-party risk guarantee, and
- to operate a tight risk containment system.
NSCCL commenced clearing operations in April 1996. It has since completed more
than 2400 settlements (equities segment) without delays or disruptions.
