Dear sir,
Court fees defers from State to State, and i am not aware where you held from. However, in Maharasthra it is 2% subject maximum Rs.1,50,000/- Further, prosecuting the builder in Section 138 is best remedy for you to recover your money and you should make hurry to file case. Kindly consult the lawyers immediately to file case.

Court fees is 10,000/- for 5 lakhs.
The court in who's jurisdiction you are to file the case is the branch area you have deposited your cheque. Do send him a statutory notice before filing the complaint within 30 days of the cheque being bounced.
