Computer institute fined Rs 94k for refusing refundPosted: March 19, 2013
A consumer forum has directed MET-Institute of Computer Science to return the course fee of Rs 62,200 to a Worli student who had to withdraw from a postgraduate course after he failed to clear his BSc exam. The institute will also have to pay the complainant, Chetan Prakash, Rs 32,000 as compensation for harassment.
The Mumbai Suburban District Consumer Disputes Redress Forum pointed out that the student had not withdrawn the admission after securing a seat in another institute but had done so after he failed his exams. Under such circumstances, not refunding the fees would amount to deficiency in service, said the forum.
