Hi! Thanks for the question!

According to the law, the legal heirs cannot be sued under section 138 NI for cheque bounce, however, they can be sued upon for the recovery of the amount to the share that they have inherited. So you can say that you are safe from section 138 but you can be held liable to pay out of the share that you have inherited.

God Luck!
