    • Hi Nandhini,
      There is no issue if you request cheque book using the Can Mobile App.

      You will receive the cheque book from the bank, but still, if you feel that your request has not been received by the bank.

      Because sometimes it happens due to technical glitches. So you can verify your request by calling the customer care.
