Use of Non-CTS 2010 Standard Cheques to End on March 31, 2013

Posted On Friday, Dec 14, 2012


Dear Valued Reader,

This mailer is with reference to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Circular dated September 03, 2012 regarding 'Standardisation and Enhancement of Security Features in Cheque Forms' circular.

Banks have been instructed by RBI to issue only multi-city/payable at par CTS-2010 standard cheques after September 30, 2012.

While all banks were advised to ensure the replacement of non-CTS-2010 Standard cheques with CTS-2010 standard cheques before December 31, 2012, it has been decided to extend the time up to March 31, 2013 for banks to ensure withdrawal of non-CTS 2010 Standard cheques and replace them with CTS-2010 Standard cheques. View the

revised circular.

How to identify a CTS '2010' compliant cheque?

1. Bank's logo printed with invisible ink

2. Void pantograph (What is a Void pantograph?)

3. Cheque printer details/CTS- 2010

4. Rupee symbol

5. Signature Space Indicator

"CTS-2010 Standard Cheques"

and the sample image of a CTS 2010 standard cheque.

Additionally, any post-dated cheques (Non ‘CTS 2010') issued by you for your loans and EMI repayments to be presented after March 31, 2013 will need to be replaced by the fresh cheques meeting the above mentioned guidelines.

What’s in it for me as a Mutual Fund Investor?

• We would request you to note that effective March 31, 2013 you would not be able to purchase into the Schemes of a Mutual fund with non CTS 2010 standard cheques.

• In case of investors who have submitted post-dated non-CTS 2010 standard cheques dated 1st April, 2013 onwards for your Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) investments , then you need to replace them with CTS-2010 standard cheques before March 31, 2013. Depending on the Fund House procedure, the cheques earlier submitted to the fund house may be forwarded by courier to your address registered in the records.

For this you need to submit a written request to the mutual fund house mentioning your folio number, scheme details and SIP details along with the CTS 2010 standard cheques of the respective SIP due date. (Please check the process with your respective fund houses)
In case if you have invested with Quantum Mutual Fund, then the same can be submitted to our registered office address as given below as mentioned below or any of our Karvy collection center’s closest to you:

Quantum Asset Management Company Private Limited,

505, Regent Chambers,

5th Floor, Nariman Point,

Mumbai - 400021.

request you to approach your bank for more clarifications in this regard.

Taking care of your investments,

Meera Shetty
Head - Investor Relations
