Scheduled Banks in India refer to those banks which have been included in the Second Schedule of Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934. RBI in turn includes only those banks in this Schedule which satisfy the criteria laid down vide section 42(6)(a) of the said Act. Banks not under this Schedule are called Non-Scheduled Banks.
Every Scheduled bank enjoys two principal facilities: it becomes eligible for debts/loans at the bank rate from the RBI; and, it automatically acquires the membership of clearing house.
In urban areas, they mainly serve small industry and self-employed workers. They are registered under the Cooperative Societies Act, 1912. They are regulated by the Reserve Bank of India under the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 and Banking Laws (Application to Co-operative Societies) Act, 1965.

Discounting of Bills of exchange:
An accepted draft or bill of exchange sold for early payment to a bank or credit institution at less than face value after the bank deducts fees and applicable interest charges. The bank or credit institution then collects full value on the draft or bill of exchange when payment comes due.

negotiable means, it is transferable by endorsement and delivery.
Endorsement means signing of a document which allows for the legal transfer.
Eg: When an employer signs a check, they are endorsing the transfer of money from the business accounts to the account of the employee
Bearer cheques will not have any name written on it, but just the amount authorized to withdraw. Any one in possession of the same can produce it to the bank and withdraw the mentioned amount.
While on the other hand, Order cheques will require you to mention a person or a company’s name to whom you authorize the withdrawal of the amount mentioned. On producing this type of cheques, banks generally ask for ID proof of the producer, so that the money only go to right hands. You can make Order cheques more secure by crossing them. Two cross lines are normally drawn at the top left of cheque which indicates that the cheque is A/C payee only. In other words, the amount mentioned on the cheque should be deposited to the A/C of person (whose name is mentioned on the cheque) and no physical cash be given.
Thank you sir. This has cleared my doubt.

The RBI acts as the custodian of the country’s foreign exchange reserves due to following:
The foreign exchange regulations under the law required that all foreign exchange receipts whether on account of export earnings, investment earnings, or capital receipts, whether oh private account or on government account, must be sold to the RBI either directly or through authorized dealers (mostly major commercial banks).
This resulted in centralisation of country’s foreign exchange reserves with the RBI and facilitated planned utilization of these reserves, because all payments in foreign exchange were also controlled by the authorities.
