The date does matter as a cheque bounce case is time barred by limitation. And yes you can file a case against that party but first you have to send a legal notice as per the requirement of law. You have to do the same immediately as your case is reaching the limitation

Yes sir/madam,
The date of the cheque is important to file a case. In the case in hand a legal notice is to be sent, that too on urgent basis, else you will not be able to initiate legal actions under section 138 NI act.
