what if i give him notice and he didi not pay.

"The Punjab and Haryana High Court in the case of M. M. Malik v. Prem Kumar Goyal , has analysed the aforesaid sections and held that the cause of action will be complete when the drawer of the cheque fails to make payment within 15 days of the receipt of the notice contemplated by proviso (b) and that the offence shall be deemed to have been committed only from the date when the notice period expires. The court had construed the endorsement "refer to drawer" as the bankers inability to honour the cheque for want of funds in the account of the drawer and further held that as far as the jurisdiction was concerned, the principle that the ‘debtor has to find the creditor” would apply and that the court within whose jurisdiction the creditor is located will have jurisdiction to entertain the complaint"

Right issue a notice. W/o issue no legal action stands.

The debtor must seek creditor has been rejected by SC.

 

 

the principle that debtor may seek the creditor should be applied in
such cases. However, that argument was rejected by the Supreme Court
by following observations in paragraph 27.
 
27. We regret that such a principle cannot be
applied in a criminal case. Jurisdiction of the
Court to try a criminal case is governed by the
provisions of the Criminal Procedure Code and
not on common law principle.”
