I am Ashwarya, I prepared for cat2019 and get call for iim rohtak, iim kozhikode, iim cap and I got admission call from iim rohtak and paid fee and attend 1 week classes but then I got iim kozhikode call and want to withdraw admission but iim Rohtak refused to give me my money back please help me
First of all congratulation on qualifying the CAT examination.
Make sure that during your admission procedure at that time your college didn't sign any shot of petition that money is none refundable.
If such kind of petition is signed by them then we are sorry to say that u can't raise your voice against them.
If no such petition is signed the college is bound to refund the security amount deposited by you. Firstly you should send legal notice through a lawyer. If not getting any response, then file a complaint before the consumer court. You may file a criminal complaint against a college as well.
Hope this will help you out.
