Please note that no offence under Section 138 of N.I.Act will be made out if the cheque that has been dishonored was issued only as a security and not for discharge of any debt or liability. However, it shall be presumed, unless the contrary is proved, that the holder of a cheque received the cheque, of the nature referred to in Section 138 for the discharge, in whole or in part, of any debt or other liability. This means that to make your friend liable for bouncing the cheque, you must be in a position to prove in the court that your friend has issued the cheque as a security for repaying back your money. If you have any evidence suggesting your friend's liability, present the cheque to your banker and once the cheque is dishonored and after collecting the cheque return memo from the bank, send a legal notice to your friend within 30 days of bouncing of the cheque. If he does not repay the money, file a cheque bounce case within 30 days after the date of receiving of the notice by him.
