Is it legally permissible?

Dear All,

The other day I happen to see posters outside one of the District Court premises in Delhi wherein one entity offered to make public the details of the defaulters on internet whose cheques have bounced by taking consideration.  

My query to all esteemed friend is whether this is legally tenable to invite, solicit details of the defaulters and make it public before the matter is judicially entertained and adjudicated.   

Your views are solicitated


Thanks well in advance.


Best regards

The details of the defaulters is published when they are devlared degaulters by the Bank. There is nothing wrong in publishing the list of those people but if any cheque has neen bounced once, it cannot be permissible to publish the name or details of the executor of the cheque.

This is to defame the name and reputation of the person who has defaulted the payment which is illegal and criminally motivated highhandedness. The concerned party may initiate appropriate legal actions against the offenders.
