Cheque Dishonour Law and Practice


Now-a-days, Cheque and Cheque Dishonour are the common words in any transaction. Issuing Cheque has also become very important in daily transaction. When any person issues cheque he becomes liable to pay the amount. Sometimes, it becomes an unpleasant event when some persons issue cheque with fraudulent intention to avoid the payment. In that context, you need to recover the amount by way of invoking proper legal actions as stipulated in the relevant laws of Bangladesh. For recovery of the due amount, you have to be very cautious otherwise; you may lose your due amount. For this, you should, at least, know the time frame of cheque submission, issuing notices, the appropriate courts as well as the procedure etc.

All the above matters are enacted in the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881.If anyone wants to protect his rights, he must need to know the literal as well as the practical relevant matter on the issue. The Act also enacted the provisions of the Cheque Dishonour if done by the company as well as other institutions.
