Section 138 NI Act: Cheque Not Valid If Amount Written Is Uncertain, Holds Delhi Court
A Delhi Court has recently held that an instrument cannot be termed as a cheque, if it does not specify a “certain amount” of money to be paid to a certain person. Thus, if the amount written on the instrument is “absurd”, the same cannot be called a ‘cheque’ and it will not draw any legal consequences under the Negotiable Instruments Act. The observation was made by Addl. Sessions Judge, Praveen Singh, of the Patiala House Court, while hearing the revision petition of an accused in proceedings under Section 138 of NI Act.
