The Debts Recovery Tribunals have been established by the Government of India under an Act of Parliament (Act 51 of 1993) for expeditious adjudication and recovery of debts due to banks and financial institutions.The Chennai Debts Recovery Tribunal was the second such Tribunal to be set up in the Southern Region.

If the transaction took place in Chennai and the terms for jurisdiction is not particular about which place, you may consider for a litigation in Chennai itself.
