These bills are discounted by the bank and the proceeds are either retained by the drawer or shared by the two-drawer and drawee. Thus, “accommodation” bill in drawn, accepted without consideration but simply to obligate a party and help him to obtain money by discounting it”.

These bills are also known as “Kite Bills”. For example, Ramprasad is in need of money for a short period. He requests his friend Hariprasad for help; he too has no money and asks him (Ramprasad) to write a bill on him which he will accept. Ramprasad will discount the bill from the bank and use the amount of the bill and Hariprasad will meet his acceptance.
