1. There is no question of IPC 409 coming into play.
2. From what you have stated the amount was not time barred.
3. Be that as it may, if you can prove that you did not owe any amount to the bank you are at liberty to move the civil court against the bank to recover the amount.
Yes, if the debt is indeed time barred as appears through your query you can do so.
You can file a case before the consumer forum to get back the money.
However no case u/s 409 IPC lies in the given situation.
First of all try to collect the documents of credit cards as proposal form in which you signed and read the terms and conditions of the same and if there is no terms and condition regarding the withdrawal or lien the account due to default then you may file the cases against them before civil as well as criminal court.
Advocate, New Delhi
The bank's action is illegal. It cannot withdraw the amount from your account on its own to pay the credit card dues. You may first issue a legal notice demanding the credit of the illegal adjustment of money, if the bank fails to return the same, you may approach consumer forum for deficiency on service and other reliefs including compensation for mental agony.
1. The Bank was barred from filing recovery suit after 3 years of the last date of transaction in your said credit card account but the amount remained as outstanding in your account,
2. The Bank was not barred from asking or adjusting its dues from you or your account,
3. It was not a prudent step on your part to open another account in your name with the same Bank duly giving the Bank an opportunity to adjust the outstanding lying in your name with your credit card account from the fund available with your newly opened account,
4. The said act of the Bank is very much within its right.
