आप उस चेक जारी करने वाले व्यक्ति अथवा संस्था को क़ानूनी नोटिस वक़ील के ज़रिये चेक अनादर होने की तारीख़ से तीस दिन के भीतर भीतर भेजे । 138 की कार्यवाही करने के लिये नोटिस देना अनिवार्य है वो भी वक़ील के ज़रिये ।

Certainly...the Act of Drawer Banks comes within purview of offence under section 138 NI Act as the Cheon question was issues against in discharge of liability arose just to satisfy the fixed deposit amount and if the cheque is issued contrary to the adopted system then the Act of the would certainly be booked for offence under section 138 N I Act
