(a) If a payor bank settles for a demand item other than a documentary draft presented
otherwise than for immediate payment over the counter before midnight of the banking day of
receipt, the payor bank may revoke the settlement and recover the settlement if, before it has made
final payment and before its midnight deadline, it:

for return.

the item or send notice of dishonor and may revoke any credit given or recover the amount
thereof withdrawn by its customer, if it acts within the time limit and in the manner specified in
subsection (a).

for purposes of dishonor it is returned or notice sent in accordance with this section.

or last collecting bank or to the clearinghouse or is sent or delivered in accordance with
