The list of eligible securities include corporate bonds, securitised debt instruments, municipal debt securities, government securities, state development loans, treasury bills, commercial papers and certificates of deposit or any other security as specified by the exchange from time to time.

Also, the platform includes easy registration process, role-based user management and counterparty-based risk management features. Besides, NSE’s RFQ will be launched by Sebi Chairman Ajay Tyagi on Tuesday, February 4.
