No. 4525-F(Y) Dated, 10th June, 2015


State Government already adopted “CTS-2010” standard cheque forms with some additional security features for Treasuries/ PAO’s and cheque drawing officers. It has come to the notice of the Government that some cheque drawing officers are still using non CTS-2010 cheques causing problem in their clearance through ECS system of RBI.

The Treasuries/ PAO’s/ Banks will not accept any non-CTS-2010 cheques henceforth. The cheque-drawing officers will check whether the cheques they use are of “CTS-2010” standard or not. The “CTS-2010” standard cheque forms issued from the Treasury/PAO have the standard printed in the left-side margin of the cheque form with some security features, such as quality of paper, void pantograph, watermark, etc.

The “CTS-2010” standard cheque forms are available at Treasuries/PAO’s.
