Stop Payment of Demand Draft (DD) Letter to Bank for Cancellation

Cancellation of Demand Draft (DD) i.e. stopping payment of such DDs, only happens under special circumstances unlike stopping payment of Cheque which is rather simple. Once the Demand Draft is issued by the bank and you have given it to the party for encashment, then it will not be possible for the bank to cancel it for you.

Stop Payment of Demand Draft (DD) Letter to Bank for CancellationDDs are cancelled only in few situations like :
a) if you have the original demand draft then you can return it to the bank - requesting for cancellation and refund of money;
b) in case you've lost the demand draft for any reason like misplaced it, it got stolen, it's destroyed, etc, then you'll have to produce the proof of original DD issued - a photocopy of it, some banks might insist on additional documents as a proof of DD lost i.e. police FIR copy, affidavit, undertaking, etc.

Do enquire with your bank first about the documents requirement as per your situation.
