No Proposal Under Consideration to Withdraw Bank Chequebook Facility : Finance Minister

The finance ministry today said there is no proposal to withdraw the bank cheque book facility as part of exercise to promote digital transaction.

The clarification comes in the backdrop of reports in a certain section of media that there is a possibility that the central government may withdraw bank cheque book facility in the near future, with an intent to encourage digital transactions.

This has been denied by the government and reaffirmed that there’s no such proposal, it said in tweets.
