between a Reserve bank In its individual
capacity and its depositors concerning
any deposits under this paragraph.
Whenever the book-entry procedure Is
applied to such Treasury securities, the
Reserve bank is authorized to take all
action necessary in respect of the bookentry procedure to enable such Reserve
bank in its individual capacity to per­
form its obligations as depositary with
respect to such Treasury securities.
ib) A Reserve bank, as fiscal agent
of the United States, shall apply the
book-entry procedure to Treasury se­
curities deposited as collateral pledged
to the United States under current re­
visions of Department of the Treasury
Circulars Nos. 92 and 176 (Parts 203 and
202 of this chapter), and may apply
the book-entry procedure, with the ap­
proval of the Secretary of the Treasury,
to any other Treasury securities de­
posited with a Reserve bank, as fiscal
agent of the United States.
(c) Any person having an interest in
Treasury securities which are deposited
with a Reserve bank (in either its in ­
dividual capacity or as fiscal agent) for
any purpose shall be deemed to have con­
sented to their conversion to book-entry
Treasury securities pursuant to the pro­
visions of this subpart, and in the m an­
