As per the recent law the case can be filed in Dharuhera only but you can file the case in Faridabad also. For the same you need to have conference with the cheuqe and account details first.

Complaint under section 138 of Negotiable Instruments act can be filed before the court having jurisdiction of place, where your bank situates, in which you maintain your account. Bank means bank branch.

So you would need to file complaint at court having jurisdiction over Dharuhera.

Alternately if situation allows, you can get the cheques deposited again, in a bank, where your base branch is situated in faridabad, and accordingly file complaint at faridabad courts.
