hey all of you who have not received their checks. It looks like there is some delay in processing checks this time. Otherwise in mumbai normally we get check between 1-3rd of every month. Be patient hopefully everyone will receive their checks. :)
How with cheques they don't have to cut tds. It does not matter with what mode they sent the money, if tds has to be cut, it has to be cut irrespective of check or direct deposit. Books will show payment against publisher id (by cheque or direct deposite anyways).
