    I understand that all the above 3 sentences are correct. But I want to understand the difference between the three sentences used above.

    Re: Ram's interest which falls due on

    #1 is most natural. #3 is ungrammatical.

    Leave a space before '2015'.

    And put a comma after "2015" per many style guides.

    I assume context would make it clear whether Ram doesn't have to pay it or Ram won't receive the payment.

    The context is that Ram interest falls dues on June 15,2015 but on June 12,2015 it has been decided not to make payment as of now. So on 12th I want to intimate someone by writing as below:

    Ram's interest which falls due on June 15,2015 has been put on hold for payment.

    Ram's interest which falls due on June 15,2015 is put on hold for payment.

    Re: Ram's interest which falls due on

    When you say 'interest falls due on (date)', it is not clear whether the interest is due to Ram (as in a fixed deposit account) or Ram has to pay the interest(as in a loan). How can interest be withheld if it is due to Ram? This may not be a language question but knowing the context is important.

    I think commas should be put around the relative clause if there was only one sum of 'Ram's interest', but I am not a teacher.

    Ram's interest payment due on June 15, 2015, has been put on hold.

    Still don't know whether he doesn't have to pay it or he won't receive it.
