There was a sale deed ( not exactly in the same format), a stamp paper on which some items were listed to be sold to the buyer and their prices were mentioned. A series of cheques for the desired amount was also mentioned. The cheques were post dated , because the items need to be checked and verified and then purchased. But the seller was in a hurry , so the cheques were issued, on a verbal committment that once the items are checked and found to be working , then the agreement will be registered.
This never happen , because the items were non-working and the agreement never got registered. While signing the agreement , a token amount was given as a goodwill gesture by the buyer to the seller via cheque and cash ( voucher is signed by the seller).
Now seller tried to encash the post dated cheques, which the buyer dishonoured , because the items were not found to be working and the agreement was not registered due to this
The seller has now filed a suit of 138 against the buyer.
How can the buyer defend himself against this cheating.
