For conviction bringing the orinal docuents are not sine qua non. The debt could be proved by other evidences also.

You have to rebut the presumption u/s 139 NI ACT. You prove how the complainant got the cheque. For non-production of Bill, chances of acquittal is very difficlt.

When it is commercial transaction it is the duty of the complainant to produce bills, account books etc.,before the court to prove the transaction otherwise it is good case for you. Cross examination is very important.

as per section 139 n.i.act the accused person has to rebutt the presumption for issuing the cheques and in default the complainant get the benefit of that.
