I approached ******** in Feb'16 to consult for Singapore PR visa, but they recommended Canada PR visa & same day they succeeded to convince me to sign the retainer agreement and pay 50% professional fees of Rs. 83,562/- through net banking. To start the initial process I need to provide Educational evaluation certificate (WES) & IELTS points for language proficiency, I got the WES certificate but was finding it very difficult being a family man & working professional take IELTS test & could not get desired band (took test twice putting 100% effort & time). I was disappointed with the result & lost interest in chasing my dream of moving to a foreign country. I requested ********** to cancel my application & refund the fees deducting applicable cancellation charges. But he denied saying no refund will be made as per the agreement. I have signed the agreement in a white paper (where on the first page there is  the logo) & Consultant authorized sign & seal not there. Again, on detail research I came to know that I do not have the required points for eligibility to get invitation from Canada Govt. but still consultant is accepted to process my VISA application. Pls advice

You can file a case against Visa Company for cheating against the cheating visa company under Section 417 IPC. Components of Section 417 are-

When a person intentionally deceives another;

When that deception leads to any exchange of money or property that would not have otherwise taken place

 

 

You are also advised to approach the Canadian consulate and file a complaint with them as well.  You can reach them at http://www.canadainternational.gc.ca/india-inde/offices-bureaux/new_delhi.aspx?lang=eng .

 

You can also approach the Ministry of External Affairs and and file a complaint with them at-
