Banking and Negotiable Instruments by Dr. Avtar Singh is a comprehensive book on banking and negotiable instruments including Dishonour of cheques, Recovery of Debts Due to Banks and Financial Institutions Act, 1993 and SARFAESI Act, 2002. The book is divided into two parts. The first part deals with law of banking and the second part deals with negotiable instruments.

  2. Discusses the Negotiable Instruments (Amendment) Ordinance, 2015 and Negotiable Instruments (Amendment) Second Ordinance, 2015.

  3. Includes the latest rulings of the Supreme Court and High Courts. 

The book discusses the jurisdiction issue for an offence of criminal liability for dishonour of cheques, which has been a vexatious issue for the courts and the litigators with conflicting Supreme Court pronouncements. In this respect, the author has discussed Dashrath Rupsingh Rathod v State of Maharashtra, (2014) 9 SCC 129 which prompted Parliament to pass an Ordinance to finally settle the law on this issue. The book also discusses the establishment of Depositor Education and Awareness Fund.
