If the words “cancelled” has been written on the cheque then, it is known as a cancelled cheque. Usually, the word cancelled is written across the cheque leaf in a big font, so that it is clear to anyone seeing the cheque, that it is a cancelled cheque. The purpose of giving anyone a cancelled cheque is to let someone, for example, your employer, know your bank account details such as:
- Your full name,
- IFSC Code,
- Bank Account Number etc.
