I am the complainant in cheque bounce case .I have been asked by my opponent advocate to produce the Account Books. My lawyer asks me to get Certificate from my Accountant, which is certified by Chartered Accountant. My CA is not satisfied to sign the Certificate. He asks me "If the court summons me regarding the transactions, I am not aware so I am not right person to sign", whom do I get signature or it is not necessary. Need ur suggestions.
Bank statement duly signed and stamped or copy of pass book are sufficient. These are evidences which can be placed before the court. Certificate from Chrtered Accountant is not required. Discuss with your advoate.
The evidence for the genuine transaction and for the consideration passed through the existing documentary evidences will be sufficient to prove your case. If the accounts book could not produced, you may deny the court about it and provide the court with some other substantial evidences you may rely upon to prove the passing of consideration

What is the stage of the case.
In a cheque case the accused has no right to seek account books of the complainant.And the complainant should not do the mistake of producing even any extract of accounts since it will open many other questions which may go against your case.
Request your opponent to get order from the court for production of accounts. It will not be given. If given go in revision against it but avoid producing any accounts.
