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.

Society Registered in Undivided Bihar is overlooked while a new SOCIETY is Registered in Jharkhand WITHOUT DISSOLUTION or AMALGAMATION or Concurrence of FOUNDERS is legal or ILLEGAL?

RTI replies from IG REGISTRATION RANCHI JHARKHAND suggest that no intimation was given to the IG REGISTRATION RANCHI JHARKHAND about the Society Registered in Undivided BIHAR in 1988, when the new Society was Registered in Jharkhand in 2007 so this is deemed to be a fraudulent charge of SUPPRESSION OF FACTS
