Please equally check did u receive a legal notice that ur cheque has bounced under 138 NI & u also need to look at the time frame comparing with the NI act...


Most of the supreme court decisions favor that "security cheques" can come under NI but a Bombay HC judgment can come to ur defense.

You cannot base ur case on purely LCI, u have to contact a local 138 specialist for ur defense...that's d only way out....Banks are becoming cruel day-by-day & u have to take prevention.
