Here’s how you can stop payment of money order and change payee’s name and address

​Even in the age of online payment sent though the Unified Payments Interface (UPI), there are people mostly the elders use the postal services to send money. They do money order at the Post Office for the payment of a sum of money to the person they want to send money.

In the money order, a ‘payee’ is the person named in money order as the person to whom the money is to be paid. The advantage of sending money to someone through money order is that the money is delivered at the house or his place of stay.

Buy a money order form at the counter of the post office. Fill in ink the necessary entries adding his signature of thumbs marks at the foot. A form without signature or thumb mark or incomplete in any respect will not be accepted.

All entries made in the form must be legible and may be written in English, Hindi or in the language of the district either by the remitter himself of by any one on his behalf. The remitter (sender) may write on the coupon any communication he desires to make to the payee.

The amount for which a single money order may be issued must not exceed Rs 5000.

After sending the money order, you can even top the payment of the money and change payee’s name and address. Check details below:
