[Resolved] ICFAI — Being Blackmailed by Icfai & Hifco Marwel Ltd.
I submitted my application for flexible MBA programme on 19th January 2007 after getting verbal assurance from the Kolkata office of Icfai that I will be made eligible to appear for April 2007 exmainination as there was scope for a job in an IT company if I am enrolled for MBA programme and pass my first examination in April 2007. Along with my applicable I paid Rs.10, 000 in cash and 18 post dated cheques. I received my study material and I was preparing for the April exam. When I try to down load my admit card in end Feb and again in early March I was not getting access. I reported this to Icfai and got stunning reply that the cut off date of registering for April exam was on 22nd Jan. 2007 and since I was enrolled on 31st January I cannot appear for April 2007 exam. I pleaded with them to allow me to appear for April 2007 exam as there is a good chance of getting a good job, but they did not relent. This denial by Icfai upset all my plans and it smashed my hope of getting a dream job in the ITCo. I immediately sent a letter to Icfai withdrawing from the MBA programme and stopping payment against the balance PDC as they have already encashed one PDC. In the meantime I received few mails from the Icfai and letters from Hifco Marvel to pay for the dishonoured cheques. Now I have received a notice from the Lok Adalat to appear before them at Hyderabad for mutal settlement otherwise more severe legal action will be taken against me by the City Court Magistration. All in the same boat as I am should write to me giving their e.mail so that we can discuss for joint action. My ID is francis.[protected]@gmail.com
