Dear Client,
Why did you give cheque for Rs. 30,000/-. Whether you issued the cheque for purchase of marble or towards security. If it is for purchase of marble then he will get bounced the cheque and file criminal case against you for recovery of trade debt due to him and also for punishing your for dishonour of cheque. If it is for security purpose then you may project your case. After getting notice consult advocate for further action.

Make the payment at the earliest else he may send a legal notice to you within 30 days from the date of receiving “Cheque Return Memo” from the bank. He will mention in the notice that the cheque amount has to be paid to him within 15 days from the date of receipt of the notice by you. If you fail to make fresh payment within 30 days of receiving the notice, he has the right to file a cheque bounce case against you under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act.
