You will have to file the Revision Petition before NCDRC. The claim would have to be made on the grounds that the cheque dishonor was not due to insufficient funds but because of a different reason which is not because of any malafide act on your part. You will have to show that you have always acted in good faith and once again re iterate the reasons as mentioned by the order of the District Forum. The judgments of both District Forum and State Commission will have to be examined in order to give the best possible solution.
