...instrument means a promissory note, bill of exchange or cheque payable either to order or bearer.” (Section 13). This section does not prohibit any other instrument that satisfies the essential features of portability. Justice K. C. Willis defines these as, “ one the property in which is acquired by anyone who takes it bonafide and for value notwithstanding any defect in title in the person from whom he took it.” Thomas defines it in his book “Commerce, Its theory and Practice “A negotiable instrument is one which is, by a legally recognized custom of trade or by law, transferable by delivery in such circumstances that (a) the holder of it for the time being may sue on it in his own name and (b) the property in it passes, free from equities, to a bona-fide transferee for value, notwithstanding any defect in the title of the transferor.” It : (1) entitles a person to a sum of money (2) is transferable (by customs of trade) by delivery, like cash, or by Endorsement and delivery and delivery, and (3) is capable of being used upon by the person holding for the time being i.e. the person to whom it is transferred becomes entitled to money and also a right to further transfer it.

Holder and Holder in Due Course

...negotiable instrument unless he is named therein as the payee or unless he becomes entitled to it as indorsee or becomes the bearer of an instrument payable to bearer. In the Full Bench case reported in Subba Narayana Vathiyar v. Ramaswami Aiyar,1 it has been held that in a suit on a negotiable instrument by the payee or indorsee, it is not open to the defendant to plead that the plaintiff is a mere benamidar not entitled to payment with a view to show that the note has been discharged by payment to real owner. Again in the Full Bench decision of the Patna High Court in Bacha Prasad v. Janaki,2 it has been held that a person who is not a holder of a negotiable instrument cannot maintain a suit for recovery of money due under it even though holder is admittedly the benamidar and is impleaded in the suit. In the said decision, it has also been held that "a beneficiary cannot be called a holder of the instrument and payment to him cannot discharge the maker thereof unless the case falls under section 82(c) of the Act". So also, it has been held in the decision reported in Subharaya v. Abiram,3 that a beneficiary does not become a holder of the instrument even upon getting a declaration that he is the beneficial owner and the payee is only a benamidar. In this connection it has to be noted that Allahabad and Rajasthan High Courts have taken a slightly different view and held that in certain cases a beneficiary may maintain a suit on a negotiable instrument "if holder is also made......
