Sec. 123 of the Negotiable Instruments Act defines General Crossing as, “where a cheque bears across its, face an addition of the words “And Company” or any abbreviation thereof between two parallel transverse lines or of two parallel transverse lines simply, either with or without the words ‘not negotiable’, that addition shall be deemed to be a crossing and the cheque shall be deemed to be crossed generally”.
Two parallel transverse lines across the face of the cheque with or without the words, “& Co.”, “Account Payee only”, “Not Negotiable”, constitute general crossing. The cheque which is crossed generally, is payable only to banker.
