1. A aggrieved person has a right to file as many compiants as many cheques were given to him inasmuch as every cheque issued provides for fresh cause of action. (Venkatesh Dutt v M/s. MS Shoes East Limited (2004).
2. S.219 of CrPC permits clubbing of three offences of the same kind in one proceeding and thus it is generally accepted that a compliant can be filed on 3 cheques at a time.
3.It has been held that where a series of cheques issued by the same drawer to the same payee are dishonoured for want of funds, the payee has the option to choose the cheque on which he seeks to prosecute the drawer u/s.138 as, otherwise, he may be contravening S.219 of the CrPC, which does not permit the clubbing of more than 3 instances in one transaction.
Jaimin Desai (Advocate) 21 January 2011
