Cheque Stop Payment Letter Format For Bank - Sample/Template

In case you have issued a cheque in favor of a person or an organization, but later on you decide not to make the payment to the said party, then you have to request your bank not to honor the payment when the cheque is presented to them. This whole exercise is generally referred to as 'Cheque Stop Payment' requests.

You will have to write a letter to your bank requesting the same. Though many a bank these days are also providing this facility through net-banking online/app medium. However, in case of no other alternate mechanism, you can use the following format of the letter to write to the bank.
Please fill in accurate details in the red marked fields and submit it at the branch of the bank.
