The Reliance India Mobile has offered the DAPO scheme, wherein a customer pays 12 post dated cheques of 1,800 rupees each, which are encashed in advance before the beginning of the quarter. The Customer was promised 400 minutes of outgoing calls, free sms, free handset etc etc. Now they have increased the tariff from the first month of their service taking the TRAI's directions as shelter. They are now offering a credit of 40 paisa per minute and charging the balance amount for the calls made in the first 400 minutes. Thereby, you are constrained to use the service for 400 minutes just to ensure that you get back the money you have shelled out by way of the PDC. This was never mentioned anywhere in the agreement. Whether stop payment instructions to the bank under these circumstances attract the provisions of Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act.
