Dear Advocate Satya

Mr Arvind Jain is right.
In Negotiable Instriument Act under sec 138there is a limitation to send notice within 30 days from the date of dishonour and 15 days time will be given for payment and in absense, from the date of service of notice case will be filed within one month.
there is no provision for delay condonation

Dear Satya, in my opinion, when cheque was bounced and the date on which u got intimation limitation the said case limitation is three year.If you want to extend it, you must send a notice infoming that the said cheque was bounced and demand of money mentioned in the said cheque. If the party who issue the cheque in reply of notice deny the payment.Fresh limitation start from date of denial.
