Thane: The Thane District Consumer Complaint Redressal Forum here asked an educational institute firm to pay Rs 1 lakh to the complainant. The forum headed by Umesh Jhawalikar and Member N D Kadam in the order delivered recently asked the Thane-based institute Career Consultancy to pay Rs 1 lakh to complainant Rishi Rakesh Nanda from Chembur, as it failed to give admission to him in a German University despite taking its fee. According to Nanda, he had paid a total amount of Rs 30,000 (advance fee for the course) in 2010 to the institute to get admission in a hotel management course at the Coburg University, Germany. But the institute failed to get him admitted in the course and instead asked him to pursue a course in finance management. The forum observed that the institute was inefficient in rendering its services. The forum ordered the institute to refund of Rs 30,000 taken as fee from Nanda within 30 days.
