We invite a reference to our circular DPSS.CO.CHD.No.1622/04.07.05/2012-13 dated March 18, 2013 wherein all lending banks have been advised not to accept any fresh Post Dated Cheques (PDC)/Equated Monthly Installment (EMI) cheques in locations where the facility of ECS/RECS (Debit) is available and convert existing cheques in such locations into ECS/RECS (Debit) by obtaining fresh mandates.
2. However, instances of banks obtaining fresh cheques (both CTS-2010 and non CTS-2010 standard) in locations where the facility of ECS/RECS is available have been brought to our notice, thus necessitating a reiteration of our earlier instructions in this regard.
3. Accordingly, banks are advised to adhere to the following instructions with immediate effect:
4. The above instructions are issued under section 18 of the Payment and Settlement Systems Act 2007 (Act 51 of 2007).
