Request Letter to Bank for issuance of New Cheque Book (Sample)

Cheque /check is a most prevalent mode of making payment to someone or an organisation against the payment due or an advance or a gift, etc. It is important to maintain steady availability of the cheque book so that timely payment can be made without any last minute rush.

In case you anticipate that the current cheque book will soon be used up, then you should request your bank to issue you a new cheque book.

New cheque books can be requested by submitting request through application at the branches of the your bank or some of the banks are providing online options for requesting cheque book options, it's much easier and saves time for a customer.

In cases, when you are physically going to the bank's branch for submitting a request for new cheque book, some of banks will provide you a pre-printed format for requesting cheque book and some other banks might not have the format and in that case you have to submit a written request letter.

The format of such request letter for new cheque book could be as follows:


Date: .................

(Name of the Account holder)
(Full address)
(Mobile No.)

The Manager
(Name of the Branch)
(Name of the Bank)
