i want to understand the time frame under 138-
1. cheque was bounced on 15th February & notice was sent by Regd, Post on 25th Feb. (within 30 days), asking the person to pay within 15 days from the date of reciept of the notice
2. let us say, person gets it latest by 4th march. So he has to pay 19th March. But he does not pay by the due date and sends a letter through his advocate after 19th march. (after expiry of 15 days).
3. Now, what will be the date by whcih i should file the case in the court??? (a) within 30 days from the date of receipt of my notice by the person- that is: by 4th April or (b) 30days after the expiry of 15 days from the receipt of notice - that is: by 19th April?????
