This complaint is filed by the complainant against the O.Ps. -- Bank alleging deficiency in service.

Complainant being a registered company under Companies Act of 1956 having its office at Nayasarak, Cuttack regularly transacts with the O.Ps. It is alleged that a cheque bearing no. 9823378 dt. 13.10.1999 of Rs. 10,000/- drawn on O.P. Bank was issued to M/s. Tibrewal Chand & Co., the auditors of the company.

Again on 16.10.1999 complainant wrote another letter to O.P.No.1 & 2 stating that balance in the company''s account was Rs.11,555.89p and not Rs.6,530.89p as stated by the Branch Manager of O.P.
