how to draft demand notice

A demand notice is a legal intimation of debt owed and the last request to repay the amount failing which legal consequences follow.

In cases relating to the Debt Recovery Tribunal or under Section 13(2) in The Securitisation and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act, 2002 (SARFESI ACT) it is mandated that the creditor should send a notice in writing asking the borrower to discharge its liability.

(2) Where any borrower, who is under a liability to a secured creditor under a security agreement, makes any default in repayment of secured debt or any instalment thereof, and his account in respect of such debt is classified by the secured creditor as non-performing asset, then, the secured creditor may require the borrower by notice in writing to discharge in full his liabilities to the secured creditor within sixty days from the date of notice failing which the secured creditor shall be entitled to exercise all or any of the rights under sub-section (4).

Conclusion: To sum it up together

Demand notice is an intimation of demand or claim made by one party to another containing statement of particulars, demand for payment and warning that if such payment is not made within a reasonable time, necessary action would be initiated against him/her. Demand notice may be written or verbal depending on the nature of claim.

A demand notice can also serve as a reminder to pay outstanding dues before initiating further steps. A demand notice should contain the following:

1) Name and address of person entitled to receive it; 2) Particulars of Debt: It should contain detailed information about the money due and payable along with the time period for payment; 3) Intimation of impending legal proceedings if amount is not paid within the stipulated time.

4) A demand notice may be sent by registered post or by hand, with acknowledgement due; 5) If no acknowledgement is received within 15 days of issue of notice, it will be presumed that the person has received it according to law.

A demand notice can be sent either personally or through an advocate/ business agent/ relative etc. Demand notices are normally based on written agreement between parties legally enforceable under law. In case any one disputes its genuineness or does not comply then Section 89(1) CrPc empowers a court to pass a decree against such party after giving three months’ opportunity to that party without taking into consideration such denial or non-compliance.
