Dear sajjan,
the case u/s 138 NI act is not a case for merely getting the money, and it is an offence based by the dishonour of the cheque which alleged to have been comitted by you.a case initiated u/s 138 ni act can be settled and can be withdrawned at any time before the court, even before pronouncing judgement.
one of intention of the legislature while inacting the NI Act, with a view to encourage the culture of use of cheques and enhancing the credibility of the instrument,so the legislature provided the adeqate remedy to the aggrieved party .adv.a.haridasan.
