Cheque bounce



I tried to file a cheque bounce case myself.


Two cheques were issued by the accused, one from his personal savings account and another from his company account which has only two directors and the accused is the major share holder.

I issued a Single legal notice within the time frame with both names addressed to.him and the company.

Pls let me know if I have done the right thing as I cannot change it now and the court says that you should have sent it separately.


Is there any Citation or provision that allows one legal.notice for two bounced cheques by the same person.

The accused has issued two cheques, one from his personal account and another from his company's account.

Since he is different from the company insofar as the personal cheque is concerned, it will be considered as his personal liability and the second one may be considered as liability of the company.

Therefore the court is right in questioning the veracity of issuing a single demand notice to two different persons.

The case may not be maintainable due to this grave error.
