What is the difference between general and special crossing of cheque?

A cheque may either be an open cheque or a crossed cheque. An open cheque is fraud prone by unscrupulous persons. It may cause loss to the true owner of the cheque or the banker. In order to prevent such a possibility of fraud, the system of crossing of cheque has been introduced. In other words, crossing has been introduced to prevent wrongful person from obtaining payment of a cheque. To encash a crossed cheque, a payee need to have a bank account or he can endorse it to another person who has an account in a bank. In both of these cases the payee's or the endorsee's identity can be easily established.Crossing is a direction to the paying banker that it should be paid only through a banker and not across the counter. Crossing is of two types: General Crossing (sec. 123 of NI Act) and Special Crossing (sec. 124 of NI Act)Two transverse parallel lines across the face of the cheque are compulsory in case of a general crossing. But two transversal lines are not required to in a special crossing. Mere writing a name of a bank across the face of the cheque constitutes special crossing. Here, in a special crossing, the amount of the cheque should be paid only through a specified bank. Thus an additional name of a banker is essential to constitue special crossing.M.J. SUBRAMANYAM.

What is crossing check?

Crossing a cheque refers to the action where the person issuing the cheque makes two diagonal lines on the top left corner of the cheque. This means that this cheque can be paid only into an account and not to a person who wants to encash it to direct cash. The person to whom the cheque is issued, must deposit it into his account if he wants the money. This is a safety feature that would come in handy in case of stolen or lost cheques. We can track who used the cheque using the deposit details. In short crossing conveys the intention of the drawer of the cheque that it should be paid only to a banker on behalf of its customer, who is named in the cheque.

What is meant by post dated cheque?

Every cheque has a date that has to be entered in it that signifies the date from which the cheque is a valid instrument.

However, if I want you to cash it only after Dec, I will put 1st Jan 2014 as the cheque date. This means that, up until 31st Dec 2013, the cheque is worthless and you can cash it to get money only on or after 1st Jan. This is a postdated cheque because the cheque date lies in the future.
