Under the Scheme, individual investors are permitted to open Retail Direct Gilt account with the Reserve Bank of India, using an online portal (https://rbiretaildirect.org.in), through which investments in Government Securities can be made in primary and secondary market. The scheme has brought Government Securities within easy reach of retail investors by simplifying the process of investment.
