How to file for a cheque bouncing case

A client had given me a PDC cheque for a certain amount before the commencement of our buz relationship 2 yrs back . Based on that PDC due credit was extended over the years. He is now refusing to make the payment . Can such a case be filed under NIA after his cheque gets bounced ? Can an FIR be separately lodged under suitable section which is non bailable ? Can he be booked for criminal breach of trust , dishonesty , cheating ?

First of all you have to present the cheque for clearance of amount before the bank concerned.
When the bank forward a report of dishonour of cheque as a result of insufficient amount. Within 30 days of dishonour of cheque you have to send a notice under section 138 NI ACT.
After recieving of notice a mandatory time of 15 days is to be given to the respondent. Thereafter you may file a case.
As far as f.i.r. is concerned it can be Lodged simultaneously.
At the concerned police station
