However, offences under 498(A) of IPC (dowry) and 138 of Negotiable Instruments Act (cheque dishonouring) will not be heard by the special benches, an order issued in this regard by Registrar General of the High Court said Thursday.

Justice T R Ramachandran Nair and Justice A V Ramakrishna Pillai will be the division bench while justice P Bhavadasan would be the single judge before whom the cases pertaining to atrocities against women would be posted.
