    Very nice and effective decision.
    Also remove cheque bouncing charges or keep it to minimum. It is harsh attack on customer already under burdens of loans and banks taking undue advantage of it. Already cheque bouncing has effect on cibil so it is already sufficient. Schemes , policies etc all must first be in favor of public in democracy.
