Who is Drawer? Who is Drawee? Drawer and Drawee are defined under Section 7 of Negotiable Instruments Act 1881
The maker of a bill of exchange or cheque is
called the "drawer"; the person thereby directed to
pay is called the "drawee".
"Drawee in case of need": When the bill or in any endorsement thereon the name of any person is given in addition to the drawee to be resorted to in case of need, such person is called a "drawee in case of need".
"Acceptor": After the drawee of a bill has signed his assent upon the bill, or, if there are more parts thereof than one, upon one of such parts, and delivered the same, or given notice of such signing to the holder or to some person on his behalf, he is called the "acceptor".
"Acceptor for honor" : When a bill of exchange has
been noted or protested for non-acceptance or for better
security, and any person accepts it supra protest for
honor of the drawer or of any one of the endorser, such
person is called an "acceptor for honor".
"Payee" : The person named in the instrument, to whom or to whose order the money is by the instrument directed to be paid, is called the "payee".
