Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881
93. By and to whom notice should be given
When a promissory note, bill of exchange or cheque is dishonored by non-acceptance or non-payment, the holder thereof, or some party thereto who remains liable thereon, must give notice that the instrument has been so dishonored to all other parties whom the holder seeks to make severally liable thereon, and to some one of several parties whom he seeks to make jointly liable thereon.
Nothing in this section renders it necessary to give notice to the maker of the dishonored promissory note, or the drawee or acceptor of the dishonored bill of exchange or cheque.
