Reminder for payment of pending dues
Reliance Communication (Anil Ambani's almost bankrupt company) has sent me a Legal Notice on email stating that I have to Pay around Rs. 9000/- outstanding amount of year 2011. Now, I never received any sms or reminder phone calls or email all these years for payment of any outstanding bills in last 6 years since it was inactive June-July 2011 period only after my request. Is there any time limit for a notice to be sent by any company to recover money and what should be my course of action. Should I ignore these mails as spams?
The statutory rule regarding limitations as to recovery of civil suits is three years. However, even though the limitation has expired, the company still has a chance to recover debts by applying for an application of condonation of delay. This is because you are at fault in the present situation as you have not paid your bills. Hence, the best course of action would be for you to clear your dues. If this matter is moved to court, you will have to undergo a lot of harassment. The best way to move forward in this scenario would be to try to negotiate with the telecom company.
