Cheque Security Tips

    • Keep cheque book in a secure place. Do not leave your cheque book unattended.
    • Whenever you receive your cheque book, please count the number of cheque leaves in it. If there is a discrepancy, bring it to the notice of the Bank immediately.
    • Record all details of cheques issued.
    • If you close your account, shred any unused cheque leaves.
    • Do not sign blank cheques or cheques written by others. Always fill in the date, the name of the receiver and the amount yourself before signing the cheque.
    • Always use your own pen to protect yourself from “Magic Ink Pen” (Scam where the ink disappears after some time). Avoid making changes, instead issue a new cheque.
    • Always draw a line through the unused space on the cheque leaf.
