Yes have to deposit Cheque in your bank account and Cheque return unpaid you have issued a statutory notice under s 138 of NI Act through advocate demanding him to repay the Cheque amount within 15 days from the rate of receipt of notice failings which actions will initiated against him. Even after notice also he had not paid the amount then you can file criminal case against him. Now the validity of Cheque is 3 months from its date it means you have to the Cheque within 3 months from the date on it. Cheque may be return for insufficient funds or account closed still he is liable for prosecution. Cheque bouncing case can be also filed through a power of attorney

Fill up the cheques and put them for presentation to the bank. If the cheques get dishonoued due to insufficiency of funds in his account then a criminal complaint for cheque bounce may be filed after issue of a demand notice to him. This apart, a civil suit for recovery may also be filed against him. To succeed in the court you will have to prove that the cheques were given for a legally dischargeable debt.

You can fill up the cheque to the amount he is liable to pay you and present the same to the bank for collection.
If it is bounced then you may initiate legal actions as per the provisions of law in this regard.
