quesWhat is the procedure for cheque bounce case

I am a trader. I received a cheque from my customer against some goods supplied to him. The cheque was dated 28/07/2016. It was presented on 17/10/2016 & it got bounced. Again presented on 25/10/2016 & again got bounced. Now today 30 days has been passed. Can I still sue him under section 138 of negotiable instrument act?

  • ansYes definitely you can sue your customer under section 138 NIA. You have to mention reason for delay. Send him a legal notice after that you can file 138 NIA against the person. The delay in sending notice or filing complaint will be condoned.
