  3. Mismatch in Account number
  4. When the matter written in the cheque is not legible

  6. Stop Payment is another reason why cheques bounce, this is when the   person issuing the cheque instructions the bank to stop payment of the cheque when it is presented in the bank

    What are the legal remedies in case of cheque bounce?

Once a cheque is presented in the bank and it returns with a memo that the cheque is dishonored, the payee of the cheque issues a              legal notice within 30 upon receiving the return memo  to the  issuer of the cheque to make the payment within 15 days . Thereafter              the      payee may exercise his right to file a complaint case  Under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881 with the                      return    memo     and copy of cheque that has bounced.
