The person who draws the cheques is called drawer, the bank on which the cheques is drawn in called drawee and the person to whom payment is to be made is called payee. It is an order of the customer without condition. It is drawn upon a certain bank in writing. The banker has always to pay it on demand.

Cheques are bills of exchange drawn on a banker payable on demand. They are instruments used to withdraw money deposited in the bank. Cheques must fulfill certain conditions without which their status as cheques will not be legally accepted and they would be liable to be dishonored. Bearer cheque which is possessed or owned by the bearer. Any person who presents it at the counter of the bank will receive cash mentioned in it. Order cheques bears the name of the receiver of cash, it is called order cheque. In such a case the word 'bearer' is cancelled. It is payable to a person named therein or his order. Cross cheque cannot be cashed at the counter of the bank. It must be deposited in the bank account of the drawee.

It is known as cross cheque because two parallel lines are drawn across it. Cashier's cheque or pay order cheque is a cheque in which a bank orders the other bank to pay a certain sum of money to a third person. The pay order can be crossed and is payable within a country. When a cheque is confirmed by the bank is known as confirmed cheque. The bank deducts the amount of such a cheque at the time of confirmation and therefore cannot bounce. They are extremely reliable.
