The apex court of India has advised Delhi Government to rule out the court fee on petitions filed by the victims of the dishonored cheque cases.

The Supreme Court said that when a cheque is dishonored due to lack of funds in the drawer's bank account and is charged under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act, the payee is not making a fresh claim. Moreover, he is trying to recover the amount that is already due, so the court fee is not liable.

The verdict would apply to all the States that are charging court fee for dishonored cheque cases at present.
