Hi Pal,

probably discounting of a deferred payment l/c is regulated by Country Law. The bank A must be instructed by bank B to effect payment to bank C and inform the latter about this irrevocable instruction. It would be easier by presenting a draft. However IMHO it is locally regulated.
Other comments appreciated
