Taking legal action to reclaim debt should be a last resort, and often the threat is enough to make your customers pay you. However, if your usual ways of recovering debt have failed, there are things to consider before beginning the legal process. The court generally offers three processes for settling disputes depending on the amount of money involved. The small claims process - part of the civil court system - is an inexpensive and straightforward way of settling disputes over smaller amounts. Claims over Rs. 200,000 should go through either the fast track process (up to Rs. 500,000) or the multi-track process (above Rs. 1,000,000). However, a High Court judge may also refer cases involving larger sums to the small claims process - or you can request this with your debtor's agreement.
