PL .GUIDE CHEQUE ISSUED FVG. SELF ISSUED TO DISCHARGE PAYMENT IS VALID IN COURT IN CASE FILED WHERE RECEIPENT HAS TOLD THAT NO PAYMENT WAS MADE PL GUIDE

Even if the Surety is not the main lonee or the borrower, the act of dishonour of cheque issued on behalf of the main borrower shall attract the provisions of the NI Act. Surety has offered himself for the main person, the borrower in this case. In the event of the non performance of the main borrower, the surety is liable to the extent of the surety advanced/offered. 

Please refer to
