What is Bahrain Cheque Truncation System

With this convenient service, no physical exchange of cheques between the banks and you don’t have to wait more than the same business day to receive your funds.
It’s very simple to deposit your cheques for clearing, guaranteeing that you face no troubles of funds stuck in transit.
