You can proceed with two remedies: 1) Present the cheques for payment (Do consult a lawyer for its effective implementation) 2) Recovery Suit can be filed. Regards, Nitin Kapoor 8800692624

Consult a practicing advocate immediately in your own interest. The cheques are useless after 90 days of the issue date anyway.

With due respect, provisions of NI Act protects from prosecution, it does not extend the validity of the cheque.

I agree with the advise of experts, present one of the cheques and proceed as required. Consult a local prudent lawyer for further action/ alternative / proceeding
