Unless the cheque is deposited into bank in stipulated time, he cannot issue any notice to the issuer.FIR cannot be entertained.

The payment was stopped on the cheque 5 years ago the funds were available at that time in that account, the cheque was never deposited again no notice was issued within 15 or 30 days 6 months 1 year but suddenly after 5 years based on the stopped payment 5 years ago he got the FIR registered based on the same cheque. Please advise.

The FIR was registered against the person who issued the cheque .The cheque was stopped 5 years ago even though there were funds in the account the cheque was a post dated cheque after the cheque was stopped the drawee issued no notice but suddenly filed an FIR against the person who had issued the cheque 5 years ago and stopped payment on the cheque 5 years ago itself every thing happened 5 years ago(we should not forget the person who got theFIR registered is a very influential person) .I was under the impression the police or the court would not entertain the complaint after a certain time of the stopped payment has elapsed, there is a certain limitation for 138 or under any section.
