This post regarding the dishonour of a cheque issued on 10th October, 2012 dated 10th October 2012. The cheque issued was a HDFC bank cheque in favour of Ryan International School amounting to Rs 14,668/-. On 22nd October, 2012 I receive an sms saying the cheque has been forwarded for clearing and on the same day in the evening I receive another sms saying "the cheque has not been cleared due to post dated". On 26th October, 2012 I receive a call from the school saying the cheque has been dishonoured and that I will have to pay the fine amount as additional to the fees. Now, I am having more than sufficient balance to clear this particular cheque, I am still being shown this status of message and will have to go through all the hassle again and pay the fine at school. It is such a shame on me as I have never ever issued cheques without sufficient balance in bank a/c. I am thankful that the school authorities have not gone ahead with serving me a legal notice. I need assistance on how to tackle this issue and what are my available options, also if I have to consult any advocate what would be the service charges? Thank you for reading my post.
