If you have proof/evidence of payment of fees then you can file recovery complaint in Consumer Court aginst them.
Adv. Hemangi Pathare,
If you have proofs to show the payments, you can file consumer complaint.
In this case centre of Job+ is providing the service and paying 1 lakh to them will make you
consumer by availing the service and if they are not providing you job in four months then it will
come under deficiency of service, where “Deficiency” according to the Consumer protection
Act, which means any fault or shortcoming in the quality of services which was to be provided as
promised in the contract.
Here, the receipt of the money paid and a copy of the contract with the signatures will
constitute a valid contract. You can file copies of your contracts as evidence in the court. You
can approach the District consumer forum claiming there has been the deficiency in service since
they promised you a job in four months and now they are promising to provide in 8 months. So
here you will be entitled to recover your amount with the compensation as the court may think
fit. As once the fourth month has lapsed and if you’re not being provided with the job then you
can get relief under Indian Contract Act also for the breach of contract. The legal procedure
would be under the consumer protection Act since the amount is 1 lakh then it can be filed under
District consumer forum and by following the format given under Civil procedure Code
complaint can be filed by you as well.
Rather than going to Consumer court, i would prima facie suggest you to go for civil suit for the very reason of National Consumer Forum has settled law that a student cannot b a consumer.. U can refer to judgment of Bihar School Board for a better clarity..
