Client Refusing to pay money what action can I take


We are a social media agency based out of New Delhi. We started working for a client which is a restaurant last April. The client told us in December that they do not want to continue. The client owes us 2,00,000 and is refusing to take calls. Numerous reminders have been sent but no response. We have the signed copy of the contract and all the reminder were sent through sms and emails. What can we do?

Hi. We can file a recovery suit under Order XXXVII the Civil Procedure Code, 1908. Since you have all the proofs with you with regard to the contract, reminders etc. Rest can be discussed in the meeting and I will be able to help you in a much better way. Please get in touch with the undersigned.

You may send a legal notice through your advocate to opposite party for recovery of amount. After than you may file a civil suit for recovery of money. A detailed advice can be provided only after perusal of all documents.

You, have enough proof to recover your money (Contract and reminders), the first you should send a Legal/Demand Notice through an Advocate, which strongly substantiate your claim.

It it is not work the you can file a suit for recovery, in the form of summary suit (which may decide within 6 months).

Need not to worry
Give him a legal Notice immediately and show your deliberates to fulfill the contract from your side and call him to do the same on their part.
If things won't work, file a civil suit for recovery of money and compansation for damages..

I would suggest sending a legal demand notice. This should be followed up by suit for specific performance of contract and/or initiating proceedings for criminal breach of trust/winding up of the company.
