4 (i) Def. of Bill of Exchange (B/E) : According to the Indian Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881, a B/E is an instrument in writing containing an unconditional order, signed by the maker, directing a certain person to pay a certain sum of money to, or to the order of, a certain person or to the bearer of the instrument. A B/E is used for financing a transaction in goods, which means that it is essentially a trade-related instrument.

5 ii) Discounting of the B/E : The seller, who is the Holder of an accepted B/E has two options: - Hold on to the B/E till maturity and then take the payment from the buyer. Discount the B/E with a Discounting Agency. Option (ii) above is more attractive to the seller. The seller can take-over the accepted B/E to a Discounting Agency (Bank, NBFC, Company, HNI) and obtain ready cash. The act of handing over an endorsed B/E for ready money is called Discounting the B/E. The margin between the ready money paid and the face value of the Bill is called the Discount and is calculated at a rate percentage (%) per annum on the maturity value. The maturity of a B/E is defined as the date on which payment will fall due.

A B/E cannot be drawn so as to be payable conditionally. The sum payable must be certain.
