If I have filed a cheque bouncing case against someone, can I ask the Court for some interim compensation?
Yes, if you have filed a cheque bouncing case against someone, you can apply for interim compensation to be given to you. This compensation would be 20 percent of the amount of cheque that was bounced. Once the court passes the order for the compensation, you should be paid within 60 days by accused person. In exceptional cases they can even pay you in 90 days.
If the final court order in the case is in your favour, the award amount that you will receive will be after deducting the compensation amount paid in the beginning of the case. But in case the final order is not in your favour, you must return the initial compensation amount with interest.
