Cheque bouncing - bank branch block

,Dear Sir(S)

My client is a builder and had taken a business loan in 2013  for day to day business, by securing  the property and also paid some Cheques of 2 banks against this loan. The Cheques were  recently deposited by the Drawee bank without information to us . Cheques from one of the banks were returned with the remark 'Bank Branch Block'.

The Cheques issuing bank was blocked by RBI somewhere in 2019 .  The bank  was active when we tendered the Cheques to the Drawee bank.

My query is that whether the case of "Bank Branch Block" falls under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act.

Kindly guide in the matter .

Yes, cheque dishonoured due to any reason comes under the purview of sec 138 N.I.Act.

Sir thank you for your valuable information.  But sir under the NI  act this reason of 'branch bank blocked' has not mentioned .

P. Venu (Advocate)     28 September 2022

in my understanding, the issue does not come within the purview of NI 138.
