      Your query is silent when was your cheque bounced? Is period of 45 days have expired?

      If no, then you can send a legal notice to the accused under Section 138 Negotiable Instrument Act thereby stating in case they fail to make the payment you will file 138 criminal complaint and under Section 420 IPC before appropriate forum.

      Further you can further file a summary suit under Order 37 rule 2 thereby seeking a decree for recovery of said amount

    • ansHi you can send him a notice initially if you want asking for the balance payment and the Hard drive and if he doesn't pay then file a suit or in the alternative file a suit against him. Since he had issues you a cheque, he is liable to pay and the onus would be on him.
