A Bank of Baroda customer will have to provide key details of the cheque before handing it over to the beneficiaries so that the bank can pass the high-value cheques without any reconfirmation call presenting it for payment for CTS clearing.
According to the bank circular, “W.e.f. 01.08.2022, Positive Pay confirmation is proposed to be made mandatory for cheques issued for Rs.05.00 lacs & above. That means, cheques issued for these values shall be returned in the clearing/Intersol without payment, if positive pay confirmation is not provided on or after 01.08.2022.”
As per the official twitter account, “Committed to ensure the security of your banking. With Positive Pay System, we are here to protect you from cheque frauds. Cheques with over 5 lakh rupees are confirmed before clearing. So simply #BankSafe with BankofBaroda.”

These are the 6 mandatory inputs that have to be provided for this confirmation;
- Cheque date
- Payee name
- Account number
- Cheque number
- Transaction code
If the provided key details match those on the real cheque submitted in the CTS clearing and everything else is in order, such as having enough money on hand and matching signatures, the cheque will be passed.
Modification or deletion
The National Payment Corporation of India’s server does not allow for the change or deletion of data once it has been submitted to it, so there is no possibility to modify or delete a registered confirmation in any way. Customers can, however, halt the payment of issued cheques at any moment before to presentation or payment in the CTS clearing or at the counter.
