Dear experts
In 2013 an empty promissory duly signed given to a person for the security purpose and security cancelled and forgotten the promissory note. Now the person filed a suit for rs. 15 lakhs @percent per month saying 2016 on another who is not known to him
With out knowing the person .
Every advocate is saying that signature is yours and hence you have to pay.

If that person files suit against you on basis of alleged promissory note,you have no option but to contest the case and have to challenge the promissory note on various grounds.

You cannot disown the promissory note now unless you prove that they had filled it up without your assent, knowledge and involvement which itself is also a difficult task.

When someone produces a document with your signature which you cannot deny in a court of law it will presume that you have executed it and it is your burden to disprove that assumption as per law.
