Just to inform you about the legal procedure involved in cheque bounce cases under the mandate of Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881 – a cheque once returned by the bank for funds insufficient etc. needs immediate attention. Whereby the holder of the cheque needs to issue notice/information in the name of the writer of the cheque to write a new cheque or clear out the confusion whatsoever. Failure of which invites a legal notice service from the end of the creditor as agains the defaulter. This legal notice gives a time period of 30 days to repond – failure of which needs filing a suit under section 138 – cheque bounce.
Had that cheque been deposited in the court, you were liable to get a summons from the court to appear in front of the concerned judge. And now it obviously cannot happen, because as per the facts – cheque was dated 2011 – the suit cannot be filed. It is barred by the time limitation. The time to file a case under section 138 has elapsed.
