There are certain precautions to be taken by banks when dealing with cheques.
Use CTS Cheques Only
Banks should use “CTS 2010” cheques which are not only image friendly but also have more security features.
Using Stamps on Cheques With Care
Banks should exercise care while affixing stamps on the cheque forms so that it does not interfere with the material portions such as date, payee’s name, amount and signature. The use of rubber stamps, etc, should not overshadow the clear appearance of these basic features in the image.
Scanning of CTS Cheques by Banks
It is necessary to ensure that all essential elements of a cheque are captured in an image during the scanning process and banks have to exercise appropriate care in this regard.0
