NI Act_Practicle Problems_46

A draws a cheque for Rs. 100 and hands it over to B by way of gift. Is B a holder in due course? Explain the nature of his title, interest and rights to receive the proceeds of the cheque.

One of the requirements of Section 9 of the Negotiable Instruments Act to constitute a holder, as holder in due course is that he must have received the instrument for consideration. There are no exceptions to this condition. Thus B can’t be treated as holder in due course. But he is certainly a holder with good title thereto and hence he will have every right to claim payment upon instrument.
