If cheque dishonoured for any reason then drawee shall issue notice u/s.138 N.I. Act and if the same will not be complied by drawer then complaint case u/s.138 N.I Act. The punishment in such case is 2 years imprisonment and double of the cheque amount as penalty. Such cases are required to be tackled tactfully. Sidharth9811776422
Dear Sir, Thank you for the reply. Please note I am the Drawee and the Drawer is intentionally delaying the cheque. Please advise if the cheque returned due to "Stop Payment" by the Drawer will the same proceeding can be initiated?
