Banks won't cancel on their own DDs. Issued by them.

Dear Sir / Madam,

The bank is supposed to contact the A/c holder who has issued the Demand draft and credit the sum specified in the Demand Draft back to the holder's (Payer's) A/c since the validity period of the draft has expired. A Demand Draft cannot be revalidated on the same instrument. A fresh instrument has to be issued by the bank.
