Dear Learned Members,
I am for an accused in NI Act case. The case is that A is pvt., ltd., co., one of the directors has issued a 2 cheques of Rs.25000/- each but complainant has claimed in his complaint cheques amount and total due amount of Rs.150,000/- and odd. IN my opinion complainant cannot pray for Rs.150,000/- as an alternative prayer. Hence if any excess amount is claimed apart from cheques amount, complaint u/s 138 of NI Act is not maintainable.
If any ruling please upload it. Thanks in advance.
