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.
