Bounced check passers will be charged with banking offences in Nepal

Kathmandu. The Supreme Court has reversed its own decision and decided that check bounce will be a governmental issue. A full bench of Supreme Court comprising Justices Anand Mohan Bhattarai, Anil Kumar Sinha and Sushmalta Mathema reversed the old verdict. Judges Dumbar Bahadur Shahi and Kumar Regmi of the Supreme Court decided three years ago that check bounce is not a government issue.

3 years ago, the Supreme Court ruled in the case of bouncing of two checks amounting to 18 lakh 85 thousand given by Nirmala Sodari of Kailali to Ganesh Kumar Rawal through check, and the Supreme Court had set a precedent that the case of check bounce is not criminal. After 3 years, the Supreme Court overturned the verdict and decided that the case can be tried according to banking offences.
