What are the protective measures.
I got new job from a company, however they are asking, for security, signed 100 rupees stamp paper and two blank cheque.
To protect from fraud or any other possible risk what are the precautions can be taken if am submitting the document.
1. Can i write and sign underneath stamp peper that,this stamp paper is issued to ABC lted for security to getting job and not to be used for any other purpose and any other person.
2.what measures can be taken in case blank cheque.
The stamp paper may be required for an agreement which is in a uniform format. Regarding blank cheques, it is your discretion, and as a precautionary measure provide blank cheques of inoperative account, and after one or two months, inform Bank on missing of cheque book. The matter is sensitive and there should be mutual trust and you have to opt for that company which is reputed. It all depends on your financial responsibilities and your chances of change over to another company for better opportunities after getting experience during the minimum service clause.
Please try if a forwarding letter is possible while the blank stamp paper and the cheques are handed over. Else, try to create some record/evidence that the blank things had been handed over so that you are not caught on the wrong foot if they are misused.
