An Indian resident started a business in Dubai and I exported him onion in FY 2017-18. He sold all my cargo but didn't send any payment. Now, that man has closed his business in Dubai and came back to India and is currently residing in Rajkot. I went to Rajkot for my payment and he refused to make any payment and asked me to file a case in Dubai if I want to recover my amount of USD 56,000. Please help me. What are my legal options?

You can take legal action against that person even if the export was made to Dubai. 

You can first send a legal notice to the person with the help of a good debt recovery lawyer in India, who can draft and send a legal notice to the person in Rajkot. 

The lawyer will include details like the issue faced, the amount of money due, the remedy sought from the buyer, etc. and attach any relevant document such as any contract between you and the buyer, any conversation, receipts, invoices, etc, shipment receipts, etc. as proof. 

If the buyer does not respond to your notice within 30 days, you can ask your advocate to file a fraud case against him. 

It is important that you keep all the necessary documents relating to the sale, safely to serve them as evidence before the court.
