Cheque Bounce - Area of jurisdiction
I live in Bangalore and I gave some money in cash to an acquaintance in Bangalore. I didn't get any signed agreement for the payment as he gave a post-dated cheque for the amount. When I submitted the cheque in Bangalore (Karnataka), it bounced due to a signature difference and the bank returned the cheque to my permanent address in Madurai(Tamil Nadu). The bounce memo bears my permanent address in Madurai.
"From the account number on the cheque, I found that the person signed on someone else's (a lady) cheque and it was not his (The cheque didn't have anyone's name)."
I'm going to send a demand notice to him.
1. Where is it possible to file a case against him: Bangalore (cheque deposited, cash given) or Madurai(my permanent address to which cheque and memo were returned by my bank)? I DON'T want to file in Bangalore as it is a temporary residence and I'm not sure how long I will be in the city.
2. Will my address in the demand notice influence the jurisdiction of where the case can be filed? If so, can I mention my permanent address in the demand notice?
3. Will it be possible to file a case as I don't have any proof for the cash given to him?
Thanks a ton.
