Wait for the other party to take a step and respond.  The issue of blank cheque voluntarily itself gives the power to the payee to fill the date as per his convenience for the legitimate amount.  If you don't have the balance make a request in writing for not presenting the cheque through registered post, or if the dues are legitimate keep such amount in the account and give notice to payee to represent the cheque, if you have given more cheques issue notice for taking prior consent before presenting the cheques enabling you to keep sufficient balance.  Normal practice is that the payee informs in advance before presentation of the cheque.


There is no impect of date on the cheque. if the cheque will bounce he can file a case against you.

Why you had issued the cheque to him? Was it in discharge of any legally enforceable debt?


Incomplete and vague facts posted.

Prima facie it is an academic topic for debate which starts with "if".

However, if there is some truth in the story it is advisable to consult a local prudent lawyer with relevant records for appreciation of facts, professional advise and proceeding as required.


He may file a cheque bounce case against you under section 138 NI act after filling up the cheque with the dates and other details and initiate proper action as envisaged in law.

Hence you better issue the cheque with the date and amount filled up so that the time barred cheque cannot be used against you.
