A notice of cheque bounce is a legal notice that is sent by the payee (the person who was supposed to receive payment) to the drawer (the person who wrote the cheque) in case the cheque that was issued to them bounces due to insufficient funds or any other reason. The notice of cheque bounce is sent to the drawer of the cheque to inform them that the cheque they had issued has bounced, and to demand payment of the amount that was due.
The notice should contain the following clauses:
- : The name and address of the payee
- : The name and address of the drawer
- : The date and amount of the cheque that bounced
- : The reason for the bounce, if known
- : A demand for payment of the amount due, along with any interest and penalty charges that may apply
- : A warning that legal action may be taken if payment is not received within a specified period of time.
- Legal compliance: A notice for cheque bounce is a legal requirement under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881. Sending out such a notice ensures that the payee of the dishonored cheque complies with the legal formalities, and gives the drawer an opportunity to make the payment due.
- Reminder to the drawer: Sometimes, a cheque may bounce due to an oversight or a mistake by the drawer, and not due to any fraudulent intent. Sending out a notice for cheque bounce can serve as a reminder to the drawer to make the payment due, and can help resolve the matter amicably.
- Evidence: A notice for cheque bounce can serve as evidence of the payee's demand for payment, in case legal proceedings are initiated later on. The notice should be sent by registered post with acknowledgement due, and should contain all the necessary details such as the reason for the notice, the amount due, and the demand for payment within 15 days of receipt of the notice.
- Compounding: Sending out a notice for cheque bounce can also help facilitate the process of compounding, which is a settlement between the parties without going through a full trial. If the drawer of the dishonored cheque agrees to pay the amount due, the parties can enter into a compromise and settle the matter, subject to the payment of a certain amount as compensation.
