In its guidance to Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) after a meeting with the bankers’ committee on Sunday, the apex bank determined to allow all visible and invisible transactions to be eligible for the Investors’ and Exporters’ window, 

granting unrestricted access to funds in ordinary domiciliary accounts, and permitting cash deposits not exceeding $10,000 per day or its equivalent via telegraphic transfer.
