Please go through the attached Notice/ Circular issued by HDFC Bank post the communication from RBI for Banks on Guidelines to follow in case of alterations on cheques. This will get implemented from July 01, 2010.
As per RBI Circular - DPSS.CO.CHD.
Prohibiting alterations / corrections on cheques :
No changes / corrections should be carried out on the cheques (other than for date validation purposes, if required). For any change in the payee's name, courtesy amount (amount in figures) or legal amount (amount in words), etc., fresh cheque forms should be used by customers. This would help banks to identify and control fraudulent alterations.
In view of the above guidelines, with effect from July 01, 2010 no alterations in cheque will be allowed (even if signature is made at the place of alteration on cheque). These kinds of altered cheques will not be honored by Bank.
