from whatever i could understand you meant to say that the buyers have issued cheque for whatever they bought and before you could deposit the cheque they sent you a notice saying he will not be responsible if the cheque got dishonoured.

if they issued cheque over some liablility then you can file for cheque bounce case.deposit the cheque before three months from the date the cheque is issued,with the cheque return memo just send a notice to him within fifteen days..if he doesnt pay you as cash or by some other means within another 15 days file a case of cheque bounce against him u/s 138nia



Onc a cheque is issued for a certain transaction,it is deemed to be honoured.Even if instructions are given not to deposit,that is not an excuse not to be attracted by NI ACT.Hence can proceed u/s 138nNI Act.
