RTGS/NEFT payment upload in FICA
Currently cheque lots are configured in FICA to upload cheque lot file received from Bank into SAP using FPB3. Now, additional RTGS/NEFT files are also received from the bank which is required to be uploaded into system. What is the best way to upload files for RTGS?NEFT? Using the same process as doing for cheque lots or any different approach? with the same document type?

The RTGS/NEFT files that you are receiving from the bank- Are they coming in real time and have to be processed immediately? or the Bank is collating all the payments for the day and sending one single file at the end of the day to SAP for processing.
Also, Is Business willing to treat the RTGS/NEFT payments in a separate way?
Depending on the above, the processing approach will vary. If you are receving payments at the end of the day and Buisness are treating them as payment from another payment channel, then you can post them as payment lots in SAP, using the program, RFKKZE00 (T.code-FPB3), with a separate document type.
On the other hand, if you are receiving the RTGS files in real time and you want to post them immediately, then you can use the concept of external cash desk functionality to develop a process which would process the RTGS files in real time.
