Two cheques issued to me by a builder company as refund money bounced. I gave them a Lawyer notice stationg to pay in 15 days otherwise will file a court case. They didnt respond and now I want to file this case in Tis Hazari cour Delhit.My lawyer says I have to hand over those original bounce cheques and cheque returned letter from bank and original stamp paper agreement between me and builder as this cheques issued were part of that agreement, to file this case in the court. I ahve to handover these to my lawyer so that he can submit these as original while filing this case in court.
My question is whether these original are required while filing the case in the court as If I handover the original to the lawyer, I will not have any proof with me except the photocopies.
Secondly, how much time ( Months or years)after filing the case may take this case to dicide?
