Will Yes Bank Honour Cheques That Were Already Issued?


The Reserve Bank of India on Thursday placed a moratorium on withdrawal by Yes Bank deposit holders.


If you have issued a cheque that is in excess of Rs 50,000 and if the same is presented on March 6, chances are the cheque would bounce. You cannot have a debit into your account or a withdrawal that is in excess of Rs 50,000, after the announcement by the RBI on March 5 of a moratorium.

Drafts that were issued before March 5 are likely to be honoured, without impacting the cap of Rs 50,000.

The RBI governor has once again clarified that they are working on a swift resolution. The finer contours should be announced early as several individuals are now stuck with inability to withdraw their money.

Individuals who have a salary account with Yes Bank are badly stuck, if they have EMIs also to pay. It's a sad story for most account holders and the RBI and the government must move swiftly.
