ABOUT THE EVENT:
The Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881, is one of the important subsets of Banking Law in India. It sets out provisions in relation to negotiable instruments – such as Cheques, Promissory Notes, Bill of Exchange – which act as primary mediums for business transactions across the globe, whether big or small. From big corporate houses to the common man and every entity in between, all use cheques as one of the mediums for the transfer of money. At the same time, there are many cases of dishonour of cheques which lead to financial losses. This subsequently results in disputes which ultimately reach courts for settlement. The aim and purpose of this event are to make participants understand the Nature of Offence and Nuances of Trial under Section 138, Jurisdiction of Court, Offences by Companies and the Principle of Vicarious Liability, Procedural Aspects, Contemporary Developments and the judicial approach to these sub-themes.
