Cheque Printing Templates

New: Template for the CTS2010 cheques: All banks are in the process of issuing CTS compliant cheques. These cheques are supposed to be similar in size and layout across all banks. Theoritically the cheque printing template created for one bank should work for all other banks who issue CTS cheque books. I have created and tested CTS cheque templates for ICICI, SBI, HDFC and Union Bank. These may work for new CTS cheques of other banks too.
I had created these templates for enabling visually impaired people use bank cheques. I had seen that blind persons however techy they may be, had to depend upon sighted assistance for writing their bank account cheques. Apart from dependence, reliability is often an issue in these cases. I wanted to provide a solution which was very simple and did not require any learning. And this is how the templates were created. For more information read the Read Me file.

In the last few years, I have received dozens and dozens of emails regarding this and to my pleasant surprise, I found that they are being used by a greater number of non-disabled persons and in many far off countries as well.

This template has been designed for filling up Bank Cheques by printing the information on them using standard printers. It is very simple to use. Open the ChequePrinter, just TAB around, type in the required information and give a print command. The blank cheque will have to be placed in the printer....

The following templates are currently available for download. Please note that at times cheque formats of the same bank are different in different regions and keep changing with time. In such cases the templates will need modification. You can send me a request for the same.

Railway Reservation Form Printing Template

This was also created for convenience of the visually impaired. This template created in Microsoft Word allows you to print the Railways Reservation Form. Open this template file, move around using the TAB key, and fill in the information. Then place a blank paper in the printer and give a print command. The printed form will resemble the form you get at the reservation counter in terms of layout and the requisitioned information. This form contains all the fields provided on the form printed by the railways.
