Identity Scanner

Identity Scanner is a Zia AI-driven component that enables you to perform secure identity checks on individuals and documents by scanning and processing various ID proofs or official documents. It is a comprehensive suite that incorporates multiple functionalities divided into two major categories- E-KYC and Document Processing.

Note: Catalyst does not store any of the files you upload in its systems. The documents you upload are used for one-time processing only. They are not used for ML model training purposes either. Catalyst components are fully compliant with all applicable data protection and privacy laws.


The CHEQUE model is a part of the Document Processing feature that enables you to process Indian bank cheque leaves as identity proof documents. This enables you to extract fields of data from a cheque using an advanced OCR technology, and fetch the parameters recognized from the cheque through the response.

Note: Document Processing is only relevant to Indian users and is only available in the IN DC. This feature will not be available to users accessing from the EU, AU, US, or CA DCs. Users outside of India from the other DCs can access the general OCR component to read and process textual content.

You must provide the path to the image file of the front page of the chequebook to the open() method, as shown in the code below. This method returns the file object as a response.

The CHEQUE model can only process text in English by default. No other languages are supported.

Allowed file formats: .jpg, .jpeg, .png
File size limit: 15 MB

You must specify the model type as CHEQUE using modelType().

Note:Zia only processes cheques of the CTS-2010 format.

The zia reference used below is already defined in the component instance page.

img = open('sample.jpg', 'rb') result = zia.extract_optical_characters(img, {'modelType': 'CHEQUE'})

A sample response is shown below :

{ date: "15/11/2014", account_number: "89323223232222", amount: "10615", branch_name: "ANNA NAGAR", bank_name: "ABX BANK", ifsc: "BB9033232" }
