School ordered to refund admission fee

R Venkateshalu had admitted his granddaughter to the Shishu Vihar Kendra of the BEL Educational Institutions Management Committee and paid Rs 8,650 as fees.

However, finding it difficult to stay in Bangalore he had shifted to another town. Since the school was yet to open, he went back several times to get back his money, but the school refused.

He complained to the II Additional Consumer Forum and its president S S Nagarale ruled that it was “highly unjustified” of the school to refuse to return the money.

The school management defended its decision saying the school had a rule against refunding fees. But it had no document to prove this. Even if it did, the Forum ruled that it was not fair and ordered it to pay back Rs 8,650 to the complainant.

Country Club

In another case, the Country Club India Ltd has been ordered to refund Rs two lakh to Jagan Mohan Bhalaki who is still waiting for a site and 20 other perks promised by them, such as ayurvedic healing, vedic spa, vedic gym, aerobics, swimming pool, tennis court, meditation hall, restaurant etc.

Sobha Developers
