Dear Anu,

1. Only you are entitled to revalidate the DD and reissue it to the payee.

2. The bank will have to return back the DD unpaid if it is presented after the validity period.

3. The bank follows standard rules as prescribed by the RBI.

Regards,

The Bank where it will be deposited - it self - will not accept it and return it as out of date.

But a question - how do you know - for sure that it has not been cashed, as there is no way for you to find out that it is not cashed or not.
