There is no role of police in cheque bouncing cases, if a cheque is bounced then the aggrieved party files a complaint case under sec 138 of Negotiable Instrument Act, n before filing this compliant case party is bound to serve u notice within 30 days from the date on which cheque was bounced, n u have to give reply of that notice within 15 days of receiving the same. Thereafter only he can file the complaint case on which concerned court serves upon u notice/summon to appear before the court on the prescribed date n seek bail by submitting bail bond along with surities. If u do not turn up before the concerned court on the date fixed for hearing, court may also issue bailable warrant n thereafter non bailable warrant also if u continue to abstain from appearing before court. In that case only police will be involved to ensure ur presence in the court to ensure the compliance of non bailable warrant issued against u. But since u want to pay this amount if the opposite party files a complaint case against u, then u can plea before court to send it for mediation.

As per the NI Act it is mandatory to give a legal notice for payment of the amount . Offence only committed when after receipt of the notice And within the prescribed time you failed to pay the amount . Have you received the legal notice ?

Fistly you dont have to get panic. Even you can return the amount within 15 days , if he complaint against you in police station , then they will give you chance to present your case. But police cant arrest you for that.
