Court fees in cheque bouncing case in gujarat, kutch

The present case pertains to Cheque bouncing U/s. 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881 in the state of Gujarat, Kutch. May I be apprised by the respected learned counsels on the following subject issues:

1. What is the precise amount or percentage of Court fees to paid before filing a Criminal Complaint before the Magistrates Court in the state of Gujarat, Kutch ?

2. I have heard that the complainant is not required to pay any court fees for filing complaints U/s. 138 of N.I. Act. To the contrary, the Accused is required to pay the required Court fees. Is this true ?

3. I have also heard that if settlement is arrived at between the complainant and the Accused, then in that case, 10 % of the cheque amount has to be paid as 'Court Fees. Is this True ? If yes, then who is required to pay the said Court fees in lieu of Settlement - Complainant or the Accused or 50-50 ratio ?

Awaiting the precious inputs of all the esteemed lawyers.
Warm Regards.
