Mandatory to send legal notice in 138 case.

Mandatory to send legal notice in 138 case.

In case of a cheque bounce, it is mandatory to send a legal notice within 15 days from the date of returning memo. It is also mandatory to give 15 days time to the accused to settle the issue. Without issuing a legal notice, you cannot file a cheque bounce case against the accused. 

Incase the time limit has been crossed, then you will not be able to file a criminal case against the accused. Then the only way to get the money back will be via recovery suit which is a civil suit. 

Thus, it is advisable to take immediate steps  in case of cheque bounce to secure your right to file a criminal case. Any delay in taking action in case of cheque bounce can bar you from filing a criminal case.
