Overview

When a cheque received from the drawer of the cheque is presented to the bank for payment, and it gets rejected and returned by the bank unpaid, the cheque is said to be “bounced”. The drawer of the cheque is the person who signs the cheque for payment of the amount to the payee. The payee is the person who receives the cheque and presents it to the bank for receiving the payment of the amount mentioned in it.

There are several reasons where the cheque can bounce, such as wrong date, mismatch of the figures and words of the payment amount, mismatch of signature or damaged cheque. But these are minor reasons for cheque bounce, and hence another cheque can be issued by the drawer rectifying the mistake in the cheque and pay the amount to the payee.

When the cheque is presented to the bank for payment, and it bounces, the bank will return the check along with a return memo stating the reason for the return. Where the bank rejects the cheque due to insufficient funds, then notice can be issued to the drawer, and legal action can be taken against him.

When the cheque bounces due to insufficient funds and is returned by the bank, the payee should send a legal notice to the drawer of the cheque asking to make the payment. Cheque bounce is an offence under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881 in India. The legal notice acts as an intimation to the drawer of the cheque that the amount mentioned in the cheque needs to be paid by him, or else legal action will be taken against him under the Negotiable Instruments Act in the respective court.

Sections of Cheque Bounce

Section 138 Of The Negotiable Instruments Act:
Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act provides that cheque bounce for insufficient funds is an offence and punishable with imprisonment. It provides that where a person draws a cheque on an account maintained by him for the payment of money to another person, and it is returned by the bank unpaid because of insufficient funds to honour the cheque, the drawer of the cheque commits an offence.
The person must draw the cheque for discharge of any legally enforceable debt or liability. The cheque must be returned by the bank because the amount of money standing to the credit of the drawer's account is insufficient or exceeds the amount arranged to be paid from the drawer's account by an agreement made with the bank.
The drawer can be punished with imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or a fine that can extend to twice the amount of the cheque, or both for the offence of cheque bounce.

Section 144 Of The Negotiable Instruments Act:
Section 144 of the Negotiable Instruments Act provides that where cheque bounce has taken place by cheque issued by a company, then every person in charge and responsible for the conduct of the business of the company at the time the offence was committed is guilty of an offence. This section provides that the cheque bounce for insufficient funds is an offence when the drawer of the cheque is a company.
When the drawer of the bounced cheque is a company, every person in charge and responsible for conducting the business of the company and the company is guilty of the offence of cheque bounce and can be punished accordingly.
Where a cheque bounce offence is committed by a company, and it is proved that the offence was committed by the company with the consent, negligence or convenience of the director, secretary, manager or other officers of the company, such persons will be deemed guilty and liable to be punished accordingly.
