kindly give some advice on this problem, a family member is having both cheque bounce case and 420/406 case registered , and he/she is in judicial custody in 420/406 case , would the period of custody in 420/406 case be also counted for 138 NI act case in case of conviction in 138 ni act cases.
Please see, that you have already been granted bail under 138 NI Act, but cannot come out because of the second case under IPC. So, in NI Act case you would get the advantage of only those days which you spent under custody in the NI Act case, if convicted. For another case under IPC sections 420/406, under custody days would be accounted from the date of your entry in jail till you come out on bail in it (under IPC).
in case where custody is more and the person is aquitted , & where custody is less the person is convicted , will custody of the 1st case in which time spent in custody is more will be adjusted in the 2 nd conviction.
