A cancelled cheque is nothing but a checque leaf contains a marking accross "CANCELLED".
By doing it no one can use the cheque leaf elsewhere. You need not write anything on the cheque leaf. A blank cheque on corner to corner in bold letters, do write "CANCELLED".
The mutual fund people need to know your account number and MICR code. Why they need the cheque is they want to make double sure that they never go wrong about your Account.

    No need for A/c. payee. Just draw two parallel lines across the face of the cheque and write the word Cancelled in between the two lines. No need to fill any other particulars.

    Different people will have different clauses for this.
    Contact the concerned agency for clear instructions as what details to be declared in the cheque.

    A cancelled cheque is the same as a VOID cheque....just write VOID on the cheque and give it to them. They are looking for your bank account information, which is on the cheque.

    Mutual Fund application never requires a canceled cheque but for ECS they may ask for a document
    of the bank cheque for verification of 9 digits number of the bank.If at all you send just write canceled
    and nothing else.For SIP also they may need.Now you decide what you applied for?In stead of canceled cheque ,give them a xerox.Mutual Fund application is always with a guideline(Prospectus)
    Go through the form carefully,everything is there.
