Fraud is a criminal as well as a civil wrong.

Both proceedings can go independently side by side, hence no limitation benefit would be available on the ground of pendency of the criminal proceedings.

Hence the suit for recovery must be filed with in three years from the date of disclosure of fraud stated in the FIR.No single day delay should occur.

If you want to recover the money, then you should file a civil suit within period of limitation (limitation will count from the cause of action and not from the date of decision in the criminal case) without waiting for the outcome in the criminal proceedings.

Dear Mr. Ashutosh,
You are absolutely right.

If you want to file a civil suit for recovery of money then within 3 years from the date of transaction you will have to file.

must issue notice & file civil suit for recovery within 3 years , on or before 31-12-12.
considering Christmas vacation srt 24-12-12, try file suit on or before 21-12-12(Friday)to be on safer side.
