@ Mr. Anil Kumar Kaushik

U/s 141 of the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881 the firm is a fictitious entity, which is represented through its partner(s) / director(s) / official(s), which has to be impleaded / prosecuted as a party when the dishonoured cheque has been issued from the account maintained in the name of the firm.

Consequently signitory of subject cheque shall be the person liable to be prosecuted but not both of the authorised signitories.
