Refer to the judgement by Hon'ble Madras High Court related to law of limitation vis-a-vis N.I. Act in the case of A.Vinayagam & 3 Others Vs. Dr. Subash Chandran & Another {Citation:- 2000 CriLJ 1579, 2000 (1) CTC 225}

Link to Judgment:

Time-limit to file a case under Order 37 (Summary Suit) of the Code of Civil Procedure (CPC) is 3 years from date of 'cause of action'.
