I have a cheque issued by my friend which is bounced on presentation in Sharjah, UAE. The person who issued the cheque is left Sharjah and is in India now. I had filed a case in UAE and the case is waiting for this person to come to UAE to proceed with the case or arrest him. This person is happy living in India !. I was contacted by some Debt recovery organisations in India and said that they can get the cash from this person if I agree. Is that Legal or will I be in Trouble.? WHAT IS THE RULE ON THAT ?
How can I file this case in India ? Can I file a case in India on a bounced cheque in UAE ? The value is Rs 5 LAKHS. Please advice
if you are sure that your friend would return to UAE and face the consequences of the bounced cheque, then it is worth waiting. however, if he has coolely decided to remain in india only , then you may have to rethink within the limitation period only . assistance from recovery agents is full of pitfalls.
I second the opinion of Shri. Cheema. In the event you have already preferred a case in UAE then in such event, you can neither represent the cheque nor can you proceed for any other case in India as I suggested earlier.
