We are manufactures and have a distribution network for our product. We appoint distributors and sign an agreement with them. We have to give them credit as per the market trends.

Yes, you can take the blank cheques as a security. In this regard, it is suggested that the cheques are provided by a company and not by individual. This will provide a criminal recourse against all the directors of the Company - in case of dishonor of cheques. The to-be introduced amendments in the Negotiable Instruments act will provide the much needed improvement for enforcing cheque bouncing situation.
