Person borrowed 1,20,000/- from me to develop his business and gave me pronote. Later he gave me cheque for principal alone which was bounced and I filed S138 private complaint.
Accused called me and said he is ready to settle the principal alone. He is adamant and not willing to pay either the unpaid 11 months interest OR the court case expenses. He is a government teacher earning 50,000rs per month.
1) can I request the judge to order the accused to pay court case expenses(legal notice fees, S138 private complaint lawyer fees, court fees and case conducting fees) in addition to cheque amount?
2) after accused pays the cheque amount and the S138 private complaint is closed, can I file civil suit with the pronote to claim the 11 months interest?
Please give your suggestions
