Banking Awareness for IBPS PO & Clerk exams - Demand Draft

Banking Awareness for IBPS, SBI, RBI, LIC, IPPB Mains exams and Interviews


Demand Draft


Demand draft is a method of payment transfer from one bank account to another. They do not require signature to cash unlike the Cheques. It is a prepaid negotiable instrument. The responsibility to make full payment of the instrument is undertaken by the issuing bank. It is not mandatory to have a bank account in the bank where the demand draft is to be made.

If the amount in the demand draft exceeds Rs. 50,000, the payment should be made in cheque only. If the value of the demand draft is more than Rs. 50,000, providing the PAN number is mandatory. When a bank prepares a demand draft, the amount of the demand draft is taken from the account of the individual demanding demand draft or the customer can pay directly in cash.

The three persons involved in making and clearing the demand drat are The Drawer, The Drawee and The Payee. 


The person who requests the demand draft is the Drawer. The bank that is paying the money is the Drawee. The individual or the company receiving the money is the Payee.

Demand Draft is an easy way of sending money abroad. Because the risk of non clearance of the demand draft is zero.

Crossed Demand Draft

Banking Awareness for IBPS PO, Clerk mains, SBI, RBI Assistant IPPB Exams

If a demand draft is crossed, it is called Crossed Demand Draft. A crossed DD means, the payment has been deposited in the bank account on whose favour the demand draft is drawn. Crossing a demand draft prevents wrong payments and it also makes sure the correct person receives the payment. RBI in November 2011 announced that all demand drafts exceeding Rs. 20,000 should be crossed, and it is a mandatory.

Charges


The charge on making a demand draft is not standard. It varies from bankto bank. The charge on issuing a Demand draft also changes with the changing value or amount of the Demand Draft.

Reading Comprehension #1 - English for Bank exams

Reading Comprehension for IBPS, SBI, RBI, IPPB, LIC exams

Directions: Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

By coach, by train, by ship and by plane, millions of tourists annually depart from home like migrating summer birds. They provide the best possible evidence to prove that the world is not really as big as it used to be. For the modern tourist is no Marco Polo. He ventures forth into the unknown and returns home in a matter weeks and years. Furthermore, he is armed with pamphlets, maps and weighty guide books which tell him where to go and how to get there; and where to stay, what to see and what to eat when he arrives. There are travel agencies everywhere to cater for his needs and make all the necessary preparations for him. They make out ambitious programmes and promise to whisk  him through as many as six countries in fourteen days, or if he is in a hurry, they will cover much the same ground in eight or less.

In the morning he goes through another arduous course of sight-seeing. He has barely had the chance to recover, or indeed, to find out exactly where his hotel is located, before he is off to yet another part of the country. It is not even a bird's eye view he gets.
