New Cheque Book
BDBL has started the Issuance of a new Cheque Book as per Bangladesh Bank guidelines. You can conveniently collect a new Cheque Book from the Account Opening Officer of your BDBL branch. As per Bangladesh Bank instruction, we have implemented a MICR coded Cheque Book, which will be customized by the Bank. MICR is a process of printing cheques using magnetic ink and special fonts to create machine-readable information. It is the first step toward the electronic cheque clearing process.
The new MICR coded Cheque Book will facilitate:
1. Quick processing and faster cheque clearing time.
2. Prevent cheque-related fraudulent activities.
In this regard, we would request you to collect the new Cheque Book.
Bangladesh Bank Clearing House does not honor the manual Cheque Book. However, you may continue to use your existing Cheque Book to withdraw cash over the counter or to transfer funds to another customer of BDBL at any of our branches.
We would therefore request you to submit your requisition slip duly signed by you from your old Cheque Book for the new Personalized MICR-Encoded Cheque Book at the BDBL branch where you have opened your account. Personalized MICR-Encoded Cheque Book will be supplied within 7 (Seven) working days on receipt of your requisition.
For any further queries, please feel free to contact any of our branches.
