How much time and money generally section 138 ni act case take ?


I have sent a notice for Section 138 from a local layer last month, to a property builder from which I have to recover 2 lakhs rupees advance money, as his given cheque got bounced. And he is not willing to return money even after notice.

I want to know about general procedure, time and money/expenses in Section 138 NI Act case, before filing a court case in Lucknow district court. I want to compare the cost to incur with the money I want to recover.  

Any guidance is highly appreciated.

The time taken for disposal of cheque bounce case cannot be predicted, it may take at least one year.

The lawyer fee and the court fee may be enquired from your lawyer
